When marine private Oliver Chadwick Gardenier is killed in the marine barrack bombing in Beirut, somebody who might be Saint Peter gives him a choice: Go to heaven, which, while nice, might be a little boring, or return to earth. The Boss has a mission for him, and he's to look for a sign. He's a marine: He'll choose the mission. Unfortunately, the sign he's to look for is "57". Which, given the food services contract in Bethesda Hospital, creates some difficulty. Eventually it appears that God's will is for Chad to join a group called Monster Hunters International.

Sooo good! I love the politics. I love the adventures. I love the unapologetic prose of the story telling. I love MHI and all of it's multifaceted universal appeal! Excellent tale telling, and superb narration! Highly recommended

New York City, 1954. The Cold War is heating up, Senator Joe McCarthy is running a witch hunt for communists in America, the newly formed CIA is fighting a turf battle with the FBI to see who will be the primary United States intelligence agency, and the bodies of murdered young men are turning up all over the city.

Noir atmosphere, snappy dialogue, attention to detail pertaining to the period the story is set and immersive narrative makes this more than worth a listen. Loved it! No complaints

CompWare is in serious trouble after a promised merger falls through, so they do what other businesses have done to bolster their public image: They hire a consulting firm to review and streamline their business practices.

Author introduces absurd situations then jumps two weeks into the story without resolve or reactions. Many times I wondered if whole chapters were misplaced somewhere in the production of the audiobook. Unabridged but reads like an abridged.
Characters acting like absurd automatons with zero worth and villains never explained or given understandable motivations for their villainy. Too amateur to be scary. Too ridiculous to be satire. Too much with too little. Skip it.

This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

Don Wilson should be a household name

Amazing! I can't believe Don Wilson isn't a more recognized writer. This was an engrossing, engaging, descriptive and very well written novel. Hands down this is the best work of fiction I've read in a very long time. I get weary with the King and Koontz offerings so this was a suspenseful surprise and a respite from the cookie cutter thriller genre. Read it!
It does have graphic language, violence and sex.
Other than that - Read it!
