    "Another solid installment from Gregg Taylor"

    This is Gregg Taylor's third Red Panda novel and sees the return of Captain Clockwork, a villain from his outstanding ongoing audio drama series, take center stage. As usual the performance that Gregg provides is a highlight. He knows these characters so well that they leap out at you as fully living entities. The action scenes were some of the best yet, with a few genuinely heart stopping moments along the way. Kit Baxter, the Red Panda's partner in crime-fighting also gets her own moment in the sun as she seeks to stem the tide of terror in the city with the help of a handful of agents after the Red Panda is taken out of the picture for a while. While still an entertaining and well produced listen I couldn't give this one more than three stars for the story. While the ending satisfies the logic of the story it felt a little too abrupt. I'm a huge fan of Gregg's work, but I almost felt there needed to be another chapter in there at the end (and perhaps a chase) to give it that four or five star rating. That said, don't be put off. It seems to me that the sign of a genuinely gifted writer is the capacity to leave the reader/listener wanting more. I definitely want more and hope Gregg sees his way clear to write another novel some time soon. In the mean time I'll be tuning in to decoder ring theatre to catch the masked marvel's latest adventures and (of course recommending these books to all my friends).

    "Another great adventure from Greg Taylor"
    Would you listen to Tales of the Red Panda: The Android Assassins again? Why?

    I am a big fan of Gregg Taylor's work on Decoder Ring Theater. This audible book was like listening to one of his podcast adventures only much longer and more developed as a story. I listen to his work over and over because of the humor, twists in the plot and the characters Red Panda, Flying Squirrel, and Constable Parker.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had a comic book adventure feel between the two main characters, the daring duo of Red Panda, millionare guy vigilante, and the beautiful redheaded gal called Flying Squirrel. These two swashbuckling crime fighters talk with wit and humor while flirting with their attraction for each other. Action, adventure and a great plot is there anything better to listen to?


    Which character – as performed by Gregg Taylor – was your favorite?

    Doesn't every red-blooded woman want to be the amazing Flying Squirrel? She has a big heart for the downtrodden but can make all the bad guys shiver when they say her name. She drives fast, does martial arts and is crazy about her partner the Red Panda.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    One of the characters called Tank was given a second chance to change his life. I liked the ways his character wove in and out of the story. A story of redemption within an action tale.


    Any additional comments?

    Keep 'em coming Gregg Taylor!
