Landed on Black is about the reality that every cop comes to realize. After you have been on the job long enough you realize that nothing is how it seems. Your circle of people that you can trust...really trust, gets smaller every year and you start to question your own sanity. Could everyone you know be this messed up? Is it really possible that you missed all the facades and the ruses that people kept up? Before I started working as a cop I was and careful about whom I chose to associate with. Now it seems everywhere I look I recognize the potential for being double crossed and betrayed. Landed on Black is about the toll that reality took on my life.
What did you love best about Landed on Black?
There was a lot of interesting and "omg-that really happened?" situations in there at was riveting but Zach Fortier's humor really held me along as I continued to listen to this book. Marc Vazquez really captured the dry, witty humor that I believe Zach was going for and it made the entire audiobook really fun to enjoy.
What does Marc. Vazquez bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Marc Vazquez, besides having a really strong voice, drew me in to Zach Fortier's reality. I felt like I was enjoying a "ride along" with him as he wove his tales from the street and his experiences as a cop. There was a believably in Marc's subtle performance that added a nice nuance and carried the humor through; especially since much of the content was dealing with this cop's experiences with the dregs of society and how he dealt with himself.
