Publisher's Summary

Hiding from the mob, journalist Nathan Davies chronicles the amazing life and times of the notorious gentleman thief, Zachary Landon. Living under a government issued identity, Davies finds himself tangled in the web of Landon's bold and expanding criminal enterprise and as the risk increases so does the danger. Scars, love, murder and marriage all come into play as Davies' friendship grows with Landon and a mutual trust is built. Even with his freedom on the line, the size of the score is of no concern. For Landon, whom you target is more important than what you target. You can gamble with your freedom, but always be Two Steps Ahead.

    There were several twists and turns to the story line.

    This book has enough suspense to keep my engaged until the very end.

    Overall, an interesting read and I would be interested in the next book by this author.


    Rich McVicar did really well with the narration and his voice added to the story.

    Any additional comments?

    The unconventional schemings of 'Gentleman Thief' Zachary Landon continue to.be chronicled by the admiring journalist, Nathan Davies in five short stories. Landon is a rogue with a fine imagination when it comes to acquiring monies and valuables not his own. But this time not all of his plans go smoothly ... and he relies on the kindness of women.
    As before, Rich McVicar's narration is superb, the perfect voice to read these stories, breathing life into the often bizarre characters. Think Sherlock Holmes and his adventures. But instead of crime fighting, Landon is the one creating the criminal havoc.
    Intriguing and twisting plots, an unconventional hero, humorous and atmospheric writing and a superb narration - great book, recommended. My thanks to the rights holder for the complimentary copy sent to me, via Audiobook Boom, for an unbiased review. Most enjoyable.

    "A series of short stories to keep you guessing."
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Uncomplicate the stories


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    I enjoy the premise of a gentleman thief. The stories are quite convoluted for my liking.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Rich has a grasp of the storyline and good diction. Easy to listen to.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Plots are too complicated. Not enough clues to follow on your own.

    I love the multiple dimensions that books offer as a place to dwell for moments or the end of time.

    Story
    "I love a charming protagonist"

    I received this audio book free from the narrator in exchange for an honest review.

    I believe that a narrator's performance breathes additional life into a book and this book is no exception. I am a fan of Rich McVicar and he is a great match for this short collection of adventures of the gentleman thief as told by an admittedly obsessed journalist.

    This book contains individual episodes in Landon's life, each keeping you guessing about how/if he will elude arrest. Too short to be nail biters and just long enough to hold my interest.

    The publisher's summary is misleading in this second book of the series, because with the first episode, much is left to chance.

    "Lots of twists to the story"
    If you could sum up Two Steps Ahead in three words, what would they be?

    Many diverse situations


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Nathan Davies the narrative character and the gentleman thief, Zachary Landon. The Nathan character relates the stories.


    Which character – as performed by Rich McVicar – was your favorite?

    I think these questions must be randomly generated based on your star ratings, but this was answered above. Rich McVicar did a nice job. I THINK, I did catch an odd pronunciation on a pretty common word - "aliases - was pronounced "ah le ah sis". I went back and replayed it tomake sure.


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

    This seemed to be a series of vignettes based around a long misdirection plot, assumed identities. It was entertaining but my advice is to pay attention or it won't come together in the telling.


    Any additional comments?

    Overall this was good entertainment. I appreciate the opportunity to review this title.
