Departure audiobook cover art

Just kind of a lame book.

Couldn't finish this one. Took a lot from Lost but it came off really corny. I usually don't complain about the way a character is written but the female protagonist spends a lot of her time talking about how dreamy the male protagonist is and it came off very 'high school crush'.

Great book. Surprised it doesn't have more buzz. Reminded me a lot of The Fourth Monkey.

Listen to The Fourth Money again before starting The Fifth to Die. This is a direct sequel. There are numerous references to the first book that may affect your experience if you don't remember certain plotlines/characters. After a couple hours of TFTD, I had to pause and burn through TFM on 2x speed as a refresher. Made things much easier to take in. This series isn't Bosch or Reacher or Pendergast where you can move around the series and not miss much. This book is a Part II.

Great setting. Great mystery. Great narration. One of the best books I read all year. Both mysteries have closure. Both are wrapped up logically with no ambiguity. This book basically has no filler. It's tight. Satisfying twists and red herrings. Couldn't stop listening. How the hell is this a debut novel?
