Including three never-before-published stories, Dead Men Don't Complain is the first-ever collection of short fiction by Peter Clines, author of 14, The Fold, and other Audible smash hits. Combining equal parts geekery and humor with the occasional dash of horror, Dead Men Don't Complain is ideal for Clines fans eagerly awaiting his next novel - or for brand-new listeners discovering this Audible favorite for the first time.

Gotta love the Peter Clines/Ray Porter combination, it just sounds right. Dig Clines style, but man, I kept wanting to hear more about these characters and their stories. Some of these are very strong and would work well as a full length others are simply that short story material, nothing wrong with that either. Looking forward to more Clines and more Ray Porter!

The folks in Mike Erikson's small New England town would say he's just your average, everyday guy. And that's exactly how Mike likes it. Sure, the life he's chosen isn't much of a challenge to someone with his unique gifts, but he's content with his quiet and peaceful existence. That is, until an old friend presents him with an irresistible mystery, one that Mike is uniquely qualified to solve.

I could listen to Ray Porter read the dictionary, and mix it with Peter Clines excellent story, I am sold. I will say, I enjoyed 14 more hence the star reduction, but still a solid entertaining listen.

There are some odd things about Nate’s new apartment. Of course, he has other things on his mind. He hates his job. He has no money in the bank. No girlfriend. No plans for the future. So while his new home isn’t perfect, it’s livable. The rent is low, the property managers are friendly, and the odd little mysteries don’t nag at him too much. At least, not until he meets Mandy, his neighbor across the hall, and notices something unusual about her apartment. And Xela’s apartment. And Tim’s. And Veek’s.

Took a chance on this one, was drawn to it because of Ray Porter, one of my favorite narrators. What a chance it was, the story while somewhat intriguing from the description, became very intriguing as the book progressed. The story had so many elements that kept expanding, but never felt blown out of proportion or trying to cover to much. Sure, suspension of disbelief is necessary here, but what fun it was, I was laughing and smiling as I listened and while it is a great story and well written it is the narration that nails it. Ray Porter is very talented, he definitely made this story flow. Excellent work

College student Joe Talbert has the modest goal of completing a writing assignment for an English class. His task is to interview a stranger and write a brief biography of the person. With deadlines looming, Joe heads to a nearby nursing home to find a willing subject. There he meets Carl Iverson, and soon nothing in Joe's life is ever the same. Carl is a dying Vietnam veteran-and a convicted murderer. With only a few months to live, he has been medically paroled to a nursing home after spending thirty years in prison for the crimes of rape and murder.

Well written story, and expertly narrated by Zach Villa. Really enjoyed this one, no crazy twists or last minute revelations from a dream, but that is what made it even better. Straight forward story telling, and even though there are a couple of moments that feel contrived, overall it is well done, and kept me engaged.
