Publisher's Summary

His name is Roarke. His history is a swath of blood and violence. Released from prison after another man died under his fists, he's found some semblance of peace as a private investigator. Sometimes he's hired to solve a problem. Sometimes he's hired to do something mean. He prefers the one, but he isn't above the other. When he's hired to locate a gorgeous banking executive's missing niece, Roarke suspects the case might be just another ugly custody fight between the girl's parents. A single gunshot aimed his way proves him wrong and convinces him to give the missing girl his undivided attention. Soon, Roarke finds himself drawn away from his Detroit lair and into the northern wilderness where an armed militia calling themselves the Sovereign North are holding the girl. Lead by a silver-tongued preacher and a remorseless killer called The Last Watchman, the Sovereign North are waiting for him. They think they can bargain with him. They think he can be reasoned with. They're wrong.

    Story
    "Solid action thriller"
    If you could sum up The Last Watchman Still Rides in three words, what would they be?

    See headline.

    The story is solid and has good action. It follows the popular ex soldier turned detective for hire who is a one man A team. Nothing new here but still a good story.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The cab driver. He called his cab service Johnny Cab. You know. From Total Recall.


    What does Brian Callanan bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His gravely and rugged voice was a perfect match for the main character. No way my internal voice could be that.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction. I did find that if I skipped a day, listened over the holidays, that it took a bit to get back into. I was all excited at first and then would lose interest. This wasn't the fault of the author or narrator; but, for some reason, despite thoroughly enjoying the book, I often had to force myself to turn it on and not listen to something else. Hopefully that is just me.

    "Fantastic!"
    Any additional comments?

    I was immediately drawn into the story by Brian's engaging timbre. The story was interesting and full of action and suspense but it's his narration that made this story STELLAR. Definitely looking forward to hearing more from this narrator. Bravo!

    "Solid Story"

    Solid story with well thought out characters and some nice plot twists. The beginning of the book is very strong as you try to figure out what is really going on.

    Nice narration, the main character had that rough dry tone that puts you in the mind of old detective stories. Very enjoyable.

    I was given a copy of this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review.

    "Worth your time and credit"
    Any additional comments?

    Very entertaining, engaging and enjoyable. The story pulls you in immediately and never lets go. The synopsis tells you all you need to know except that the book is worth your time and credit. Hopefully this will be turned into a series.

    Action , mystery, suspense, revenge and more. Roarke what a character. He's a man you definitely want on your side. Rough around the edges, very lethal and lives by his own moral code.

    Well written, interesting story with plenty of twists that will have you on the edge of your seat from start to finish.

    Brian Callanan did a great job with the narration. Perfect narrator for this book. Great voice for this type of story. Clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Great character voices. Perfect delivery and tone. He brought the characters to life through his narration. Very enjoyable.

    Always searching for that next great adventure to dive into... preferably while society collapses and all hell is breaking loose!

    Story
    "Thrilling action packed novel!"

    This book has many similar qualities as many of the Jack Reacher books by Lee Child. The main character is a quiet, brute of a man who gets himself into trouble with death seemingly around every corner. The twists and turns will leave you wanting more as the story progresses.

    Kudos to the author and narrator for an enjoyable thrilling action packed adventure. This book was gifted to me at no cost in exchange for an honest and unbiased review courtesy of AudiobookBoom dot com.

    Story
    "This is one tough guy!"

    Beaten, shot, stabbed, and betrayed this guy never quits. This main character is a little dark but still a good guy. Rules don't apply -- if he makes it his mission nothing short of death will stop him. The story was pretty good although it dragged in a few places. I think this is worth a credit and I'll look for sequels.

    I received this book for free in exchange for an unbiased review from Audiobook Boom.

    It's a long book but it sucked me in and kept me interested from start to finish. I love the main character Roarke and his story. This book seriously has it all! Brian Callanan's voice truly gives life to Roarke and the other characters.

    "Perfect marriage of story and narrator!!"
    Any additional comments?

    This book had me at the opening paragraph and I could not stop listening until the absolute very end.

    The story was intricate and well thought out. It had a bevy of incredible characters and all of them came to life in the hands of this narrator.

    There is a definite style and cadence to this listen reminiscent of a Micky Spillane mystery. That's the first delicious aspect of this listen. Then the narrator comes in, gives Roarke that booming base with those soft edges, and he makes you believe!!

    There were some surprises towards the end (no spoilers) and when I could breathe again, I count this among my favorite listens all year.
