Publisher's Summary

Washed-up movie star Jack Palms is knee-deep in a Bay Area drug war and it'll take the performance of a lifetime to get him through it alive.

In the three years since Jack Palms left Hollywood and kicked his drug habit, he's added fourteen pounds of muscle, read 83 books, and played it as straight as anyone could reasonably ask. But the residual checks are drying up, and the ascetic lifestyle's starting to wear thin, so Jack's happy to cash in on his former celebrity by showing some out-of-town high rollers around San Francisco's club scene.

Then people start turning up dead, and Jack realizes he's been playing tour guide to a pack of former KGB agents turned coke dealers. Soon he's got too many gunmen after him to count - including a South American drug cartel, a mountain-sized Samoan enforcer, and a mobbed-up strip-club owner with an army of thugs. That's not to mention the gorgeous bartender who may be planning on shooting him in the back and the homicide cop who's just given Jack 24 hours to bring down the Bay Area's biggest drug dealer.

But the thing that scares Jack the most? He's starting to enjoy himself.

A Good Listen

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request, and have voluntarily left this review. I found this fast paced and suspenseful tale very enjoyable. Jack is a washed up actor, living a calm and organized life when he gets a call from an old friend. From this point things just spiral out of control, but Jack keeps it together the best that he can, even though he's in the middle of it all. This action packed story is suspenseful with a touch of dark humor. Definitely worth a listen.

Fun story, great author performance

Have been a big fan of Seth Harwood since he was publishing on podiobooks, love seeing his work on Audible. The story is fast paced fun and the author delivers a solid performance of his work. Can't wait to see his other Palms works on Audible... but seriously miss the original recording's intro and outro music!

Great independent writing, amazing narration

Fun story, listened years back for free. Happy to buy it to listen again. If you're looking for a fun trip away from your day to day life check this out.

I'd buy more from Seth on audible. I'd like to see the rest of his books here. Hell I'd probably buy stuff he narrated that wasn't his writing. It's great to see independents show up on audible.

YOU WILL BE HOOKED!

I am hooked on this series! It has so much action and suspense you won't want to put it down. The narration was great and performed by the author himself. This author does an excellent job with the character builds and plot. I've read the second and third book in this series and enjoyed them as well. I look forward to reading the next book (Young Junius). I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Good story

I liked this story, it was fast paced and full of action. Seth Harwood does a good job in writing an entertaining story with a couple of usual characters.
