Dan Delgado is a private investigator. He’s unenthusiastic, and unmatched. As a former San Francisco detective, he misses more meaningful work, but he hasn’t had the heart for it since his wife’s death five years prior. That is, until a phone call from a distraught mother, an illegal immigrant who can’t go to the police, puts him on the hunt for a missing little girl. By the time he reaches the mother’s small home, she’s missing, too. Then a team of heavily armed mercenaries arrive. Delgado and crew are plunged into a dangerous world of corporate competition, UFO lore, and government cover-ups.

😁 I really enjoyed this book. I don't think I would have liked it as much if RC Bray wasn't narrating. the story builds and grows at a great pace. aside from the inaccuracies about religion, it's a fantastic time spent listening.

Old ways have been broken in the blood and smoke of the Battle of Thornhurst by Allystaire Stillbright and followers of the Goddess. Now the Paladin must recover from his ordeal, carve out a hopeful future for the shattered Baronies, and prepare for the next attack upon the Goddess' new and fragile following. But the corrupt deity, Braech, the Sea-Dragon, will not easily let go of the power that has long been his. Braech's minions march on the now-weakened Baronies. The final battle, a crusade against the Mother and all of her followers, is near.

I love Brandon Sanderson. I wish he would put more love and effort into finishing some of his other stories.
this book was good, however, the villain was weak there wasn't a lot of subterfuge so they're lacked balance with the tenacity and heart of the main character.
I liked the surprise ending, but it just felt too soft. As if the author was writing it in a perfect place, with perfect temperature, perfect food, perfect drink......just too easy.

I liked the relationship between the main. character and the main female character up to the point before this book started. now the author has chose to have them be sexually active and has made warrior in training appear weak and stumbled over his words to often. why make a strong domineering character able to battle the most worthy foes so stupid and idiotic when it comes to girls?

I am shocked that such a fantastic historical story was chosen to be read by someone with such a high pitched and monotonous tone.
I'm guessing the narrator is a close friend or family member of someone who is in an authoritarian position or this narrator is wealthy and paid someone to be able to read this story for audible. Either way Audible would benefit from having a much more talented narrator perform this awesome story.

Homicide detective Bryan Clauser is losing his mind. How else to explain the dreams he keeps having - dreams that mirror, with impossible accuracy, the gruesome serial murders taking place all over San Francisco? How else to explain the feelings these dreams provoke in him - not disgust, not horror, but excitement? As Bryan and his longtime partner, Lawrence 'Pookie' Chang, investigate the murders, they learn that things are even stranger than they at first seem.
