    4.5 out of 5 stars 55

A collection of absurdist and thought-provoking stories from the author's Return to the Dirt, Just Speculating, and more, including unreleased, exclusive, audio-only content! Performed by a cast of award-winning and Audie® nominated narrators. Fans of the macabre, dark humor, and cerebral thrillers are guaranteed a good listen. Occupational Hazards is an unflinching ride through the absurdity of it all. Existentialism, absurdism, and outlandish humor merge with ordinary, workaday life for a truly unique perspective of the human experience. Not recommended for the faint of heart or easily offended. But if meaty stories are what you're after....We hope you're hungry.

I want to start off by saying I thoroughly enjoyed these stories. But, what the hell is wrong with Geoff Sturtevant. And I mean that with no disrespect. There were multiple times I had to pause the audiobook and think about what I was listening to, and every time I did I said to myself what the hell is wrong with Geoff Sturtevant? From there I would continue the story with an eager ear to listen and see where the story would lead next. I have to say I was captivated from the start, all the way to the end. I also have to give thanks to the narrators as they each did a fantastic job keeping me wrapped into the spirit of each story.

The murder was brutal. The scene resembled a slaughterhouse. "We need Nate Burns," Jack Mill said and set about getting the medically retired detective to Vegas. Such a simple request will lead Nate not only on a manhunt across the country but also back in time 30 years, where he will struggle to understand the implications of the Cold War.

Here’s another story where Nate has evolved once again, and I’m left wondering if I hate this man or like him. His complexity only develops all the more with this story and is worth a listen. The narration was spot on and enveloped me deeper into the story. Great work by the author and narrator both on this one.

This was an action packed book that I highly enjoyed and would recommend anyone to listen to. It’ll be interesting to see what Sean will decide to do next. I can’t wait to listen to the next book! The narrator Paul McSorley did a great job like in the first book, and I hope to hear his work again hopefully in the next story.

Another great story in a great series. Mac always seems to be in the thick of trouble, but always figures out a way to get out of his issues, but always creates more problems for himself. It will be interesting to see where this story will lead in the next book. I also tip my hat to the narrator as Paul McSorley did a great job as he’s done in the past with these characters in the previous stories.

I enjoyed this spin off story from the Mac Travis series. It’ll be interesting to see where this series will lead, but if it’s anything like the original series it will be a good one! The narrator did a great with all the different voices and encapsulating the energy of the story. I hope to hear Paul McSorley do the rest of the series!

This is the first book in the series Purple Mist - sci-fi/horror novelette trilogies written specifically for audiobooks and e-books, and for binge listening. You'll enjoy a spine tingling, Outer Limits feeling, and a quicker dramatic payoff than with standard-sized novels. Each is a third the size of a full-length novel.

Each story was better than the next. The last two I have to say threw me for a loop and I wasn’t expecting the endings which I enjoyed. The first story was very well written as well, but seeing the ending coming made the other two stories better. I highly enjoyed this set and I would recommend them to anyone. The great narration also helped to get me into this story. Great job to everyone involved.

Over the Indian Ocean, a Malaysia Airline jumbo jet drops from radar. Three hundred and twenty-seven souls disappear with it; a woman in Rockford, Illinois is brutally murdered. Unrelated news events? Retired FBI agent Sean Kruger doesn't think so. He suspects it's the work of serial killer Randolph Bishop. Now a college professor, Kruger has tried to live with the mistake he made while investigating Bishop six years earlier. It looks as though the only man to elude him, in his 25-year tenure with the FBI, has returned to seek vengeance.

There was no doubt the man was dead. A bullet through the head will do that. But, who was dead? The man had no identification, no known address, no Social Security information could be found, and the fingerprint search came up empty. Detective Nate Burns, Albuquerque Police Department, knew two things. The man was dead and he was blood type O+. The most common type of blood in the country.

This book was simply amazing. Nate is such a complex man that from the first book to this one I went from loving to hating, and loving to hating, and back to loving again. It was splendid to see the progression of the relationship between Nate and Clare. Then the ending of this book was something I didn’t see coming. It was quite a twist that I found myself saying “oh my gosh.” And McSorley did a great job narrating, he never disappoints!

Bobby Roland can't catch a break. Less than a week after Bobby takes on the mantle of Servitude, a position granting him the ability to exorcise demons from the possessed, he finds an envelope taped to his door containing an intimidating note and a picture of a strange woman. When a shadowy figure is abducted off the sidewalk down the street from his house, Bobby can't help but wonder if it's her.
