Set after the fourth season of the groundbreaking television drama Sons of Anarchy, from the mind of Executive Producer Kurt Sutter…
Jax learns that his half-sister, Trinity, has been in the U.S. for months without his knowing - and has abruptly gone missing. He heads to Nevada with Chibs and Opie to search for her... only to find that Trinity has gotten herself caught in the middle of a war between rival factions of the Russian mafia, and dragged Jax and the Sons in after her.

Was a little slow at first and the narrators character voices took getting use to. But once the rhythm was found it turned out to be a good story. I enjoyed it.
Didn't mind the story - nothing like SOA genius we've come to expect, but a fun ride nonetheless.
I found it particularly funny how many times the author chose to use the phrase "he cocked his head". That gave me a laugh every time I heard it....
I couldn't listen past the first chapter
ABSOLUTELY NOT. His voice works for some titles, but it is totally inappropriate for this book. Completely unlike the actual folks he portrays, but it's more than just that. His voice just doesn't even match with this particular story.
I really think my disappointment is MOSTLY related to the choice of narrator. Mr. Berkrot invokes a certain persona that lends itself to many works, this just wasn't one of them.
I have to say the narrator totally ruined it for me. I had a really hard time getting into the story because of it.
Military vet, family man and father. BS in Info Sys Engineering. Biker in my spare time.
The narrator spoke with a heavy Australian or New Zealand accent that completely distracted me from the story. I found myself replaying every sentence in my mind, hearing the words in the familiar tones of Charlie Hunnam and the rest of the cast. By time I got back to actually listening the audio, I had lost track and was constantly moving back and forth in the audio, trying to find where I left off. I didn't expect to hear a celebrity impersonation of every actor on the show, but this was distracting that I could barely recognize any characters, much less keep track of what they were doing.
This tape needs to be rerecorded with someone who can at least sound like he grew up in the California redwoods, not the Australian Outback. Very, very disappointing and possibly the worst audio experience I have had since my first Audible purchase. I would return it for a full refund if I could - it's that bad.
A machinist that loves peeks into the supernatural. And science fiction. Aaaand comedy. Look, I'll listen to almost anything to keep sane.
Not the right VA for the franchise, but a damned good Sons story. Any real Sons fan will enjoy it, but the voice actor isn't what I'd call consistent with the accent for the characters.
"A good listen"
As long a you can get over the voices being different than the tv show it turns out to be well performed with a great sory
"Once you get round the narration it's a good story"
That's not criticising the narrator in any way. It's a hard gig to follow reading a story where people already have indelibly etched into their minds the sounds of the main character voices.
The story itself is very good and in keeping with the series.
