New York Times best-selling author Carl Hiaasen teamed up with journalist Bill Montalbano for this gripping thriller. Powder Burn stars Chris Meadows, a successful Miami architect who’s leaving a meeting with an ex-girlfriend when he sees a car strike his ex, killing her. But the nightmare is only just beginning. As a witness to the crime, Chris knows the car’s passengers - thugs linked to Miami’s deadliest drug lords - are sure to come after him next. But what can he do if the police refuse to give him protection?

I cant rate this book because I was to bored to get past the first 3 hours. If you love Carl Hiaasen stay away from this book. Its starts slow and I think that's the way it will continue. This book was a slow starter like the Lords of Discipline
Not both this book was too boring to complete. I have listened to all of Carl Hiassen books longer than 8 hours and I loved them all, this one was just not for me.
I didn't finish the book so I don't feel like I should rate his performance
I was to bored to finish the first half let alone the complete boo.
Can I have a refund?
not sure, since I did not read the print version, but the audio was great
Yes, fast paced, no long rambling speeches
tough question, not really sure
After reading other books by Hiaasen, I am convinced that he simply put the finishing touches and added a few funny parts to this tome after Montalbano had finished.
I would have had Montalbano tell Hiaasen the structure of the story, and then have Carl alone write the book in his style.
The idea of having a young Latino read the book was a good one, but It seems that you need someone with a greater range of tone in his voice. It needs to be read by someone older, and with a more gruff voice.
"All potential lost to a bad reader"
The plot might have held promise. Certainly with Hiaasen as one of the authors, I had hopes. But the reader ruined it. I could not get past chapter 3. Same harsh tone no matter what the scene, didn't seem to be taking in what he was reading so emphasis often misplaced. What a pity
