While on a fly fishing vacation to Andros Island in the Bahamas, narcotics detectives Dix and Petersen discover their fishing guides were killed when a sudden blast of gunfire fractured their speedboat, Gray Ghost. Local gossip has it that Gray Ghost went to the ocean floor with a hundred million dollars’ worth of cocaine in the hull. Dix and Petersen, against their better judgment, are drawn into helping their island friends even though it could cost them their careers. Leads are chased down in the Bahamas and Miami.

Would you listen to Gray Ghost again? Why?

Yes - I will definitely listen to Gray Ghost again - there's a lot of action and it all happens fast.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Gray Ghost?

When they made the connection with who they thought was the kingpin

Have you listened to any of Patrick Conn’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

No - but I will watch for his audios ... perfect voice for this book and these characters.

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

yes

Any additional comments?

I won this audio book in a contest, but I had previously purchased and read the ebook version. Here's that review: Well written action adventure that you won't want to miss. Two Miami-Dade police detectives head to the Bahamas for a much-deserved vacation of fishing when they inadvertently become involved with an international drug smuggling ring.

The characters are colorful and easily come to life. The story has just enough twists and turns to keep the reader turning pages in anticipation of the next action.

My hat is off to Chris Swinney for this masterpiece ... I look forward to reading many more.

Tyler Cunningham is a detective like no other. He can mimic humanity, but in most cases fails utterly to understand people, why they do the things they do, or act in the ways that they do. His saving grace is an insatiable hunger for knowledge that combines with an ability to make connections from a series of seemingly unrelated data-points that other people miss; this continually pulls him into other peoples' problems.

Would you listen to Mickey Slips again? Why?

the main character is unique and easy to follow

What was one of the most memorable moments of Mickey Slips?

when I "see" the wheels turning in Tyler Cunningham's brain when he develops a plan to help his friend.

What about Douglas Thornton’s performance did you like?

his voice is clear and it fits my idea of Tyler's character. Jamie Sheffield has a very unique writing style and Mr. Thornton does an excellent job of following that pace.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Under-the-radar sleuth and socially-awkward Tyler Cunningham saves the day ... again.

Any additional comments?

CLEVER, ENGAGING - author Jamie Sheffield's character, Tyler Cunningham, never fails to entertain and engage the reader. This book is no exception. In this adventure the quirky, under-the-radar sleuth, Tyler, sets out to foil a scam perpetuated on a dear friend. Although I own this book, my reading time has been cut short lately, so I listened to the audio book version. The narrator was excellent, a perfect voice match for my idea of the very resourceful, socially-awkward, intelligent, Coke-a-holic person that IS Tyler Cunningham. If Mr. Sheffield continues to produce his books in audio, I will continue to listen.
