Publisher's Summary

Where does an angel go when he’s been to Hell and back?

Renegade angel Bobby Dollar does not have an easy afterlife. After surviving the myriad gruesome dangers Hell oh-so-kindly offered him, Bobby has returned empty-handed – his demon girlfriend Casmira, the Countess of Cold Hands, is still in the clutches of Eligor, Grand Duke of Hell. Some hell of a rescue.

Forced to admit his failure, Bobby ends up back at his job as an angel advocate. That is, until Walter, an old angel friend whom Bobby never thought he’d see again, shows up at the local bar. The last time he saw Walter was in Hell, when Walter had tried to warn him about one of Bobby’s angel superiors. But now Walter can’t remember anything, and Bobby doesn’t know whom to trust.

Turns out that there’s corruption hidden within the higher ranks of Heaven and Hell, but the only proof Bobby has is a single feather. Before he knows it, he’s in the High Hall of Heavenly Judgement – no longer a bastion for the moral high ground, if it ever was, but instead just another rigged system – on trial for his immortal soul…

Sleeping Late on Judgement Day is the third installment of Tad Williams’ urban fantasy Bobby Dollar series!

    "I am already waiting for the fourth in thje Series"
    Where does Sleeping Late On Judgement Day rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have listened to hundreds of audio books. This one is in the top ten percent.


    What about George Newbern’s performance did you like?

    He reads the book at a fast pace which is exactly what is needed to keep the listener in all the way.


    Any additional comments?

    I personally like the style the author uses. He weaves off the point intentionally and then pops back in at exactly the right time. Great job.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Definitely! Book 1 and Book 3 of the "Bobby Dollar" series are some of the best the hundreds of noir fiction stories I've ever read. You can skip Book 2 and you won't miss anything.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sleeping Late On Judgement Day?

    This is a "guy" book. Cars, guns, gorgeous goddesses, hot sex, lots of vengeful violence balanced with sarcastic comic relief. Imagine that you're an immortal being, with amnesia, stuck in a meat body on Earth with the ability to open a "zipper" into Heaven whenever your have issues with your bosses while being an Angel Advocate" for disembodied dead people floating between heaven and hell. Bobby's day job is arguing against attorneys from Hell to defend the recently departed from being sent to Eternal Fired forever Bobby Dollar is the perfect noir detective type. This kind of work takes a special kind of "angel": a snide, cynical, quasi-alcoholic wise-ass loner with an insouciant sense of no bullshit existential spiritually. Bobby is an empathetic small town Angel with street smarts, a gun-totting bad-ass big city attitude with zero tolerance for demonic villains -- except for his exquisitely beautiful girlfriend from Hell, Caz. There is nothing corny or ecclesiastical about this story. It's strictly hard core skepticism. As a work of literature it is eloquent, yet real. Every sequence in the story flows seamlessly into the next with a climactic ending more satisfying than the hottest sex this side of Hell! It's a must read from every Earthbound Angel.


    Which character – as performed by George Newbern – was your favorite?

    Bobby Dollar. George is a genius at personifying all the many characters in the book!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Not really. I wanted to savor every minute. When I finished I wanted to listen to it again!


    Any additional comments?

    I've read about 4,000 books. This is in my top 100, for sure.

    A good finish to a good series. I hope that Tad Williams will return to the Bobby Dollar-verse in the not to distant future. I would like to read/listen to more.
