The Matt Cooper complete series consists of a total of 102 short stories to date. All the stories combined would make the file too large, so I broke the collection down into groups of 10 stories each. Here's what you'll find in this volume:
11) Find Her
12) Hard Bargain
13) The Case of the Plates
14) Dead Ringer
15) The Stickup
16) You Can Bank on It
17) The Last Stop
18) Violence Is Golden
19) Surprise Package
20) The Big Sweep
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
If you missed 1-10 this may work better for you. I was completely entertained by the print version 84 + stories. They're short, entertaining light reading. 1-10 translated better to audio. But it was a different narrator
If you’ve listened to books by Bill Bernico before, how does this one compare?
Cooper 1-10 was a better listening experience. In all honesty I enjoy Bill Bernico's writting having read a great number of his tales.
How did the narrator detract from the book?
Yes he did.It's not that he's a bad narrator he is simply, in my opinion, not a good fit for these stories. It may just be me but I found his slower reading tempo just didn't fit well. In reading the print version I found the ability to change tempo and pace made a difference in readability and enjoyment. Some stories have more detail others not as much after all there are lots of stories written over a period of time.
What character would you cut from The Cooper Saga 02?
There aren't any disposable characters, there all there for a reason.
Any additional comments?
Bill Bernico is a comptent and enjoyable author this shouldn't be taken as a comdemnation of his skills as an author, it's a simple mismatch.
