Critic Reviews

"Read this book in one day. The scenes move, and I mean fast. Anything goes in the Florida Keys, and this story captures the essence. Good descriptions, unique characters, and a plot that could be taken from the news headlines. I'm a fan of Florida fiction, and Steven Becker is now on my 'to-read' list." (Ed Robinson, author of Leap of Faith/Quit Your Job and Live on a Boat)

Great group of books

Each book was unique in their own ways. Each of them were a different kind of story around the same character. The things that Mac gets into is unthinkable sometimes. The stories as a whole were great and I enjoyed them. The narrator did a great job of distinguishing between the different characters, and has a great voice for this line of work. Good job to him for his hard work on this book!

4 Great Stories with Awesome Narration!

What an awesome book set! I so enjoy the writing style of Steven Becker with his vivid imagery and endearing characters. I like it that Mac Travis is rough around the edges, but a great guy. Paul McSorely does a fantastic performance with his narration. He adds the right emotions and his pace is perfect. Each book in this set is a standalone listen, yet has some same characters repeated in each book. I highly recommend this author and narrator!

LOVE these!

Four adventure audiobooks for the price of one is already a good deal but these novels are great! I saw a lot of bad reviews but I've listened to the narrator in the Kruger novels and want to see what his earlier work was like. Of course, reviews are going to be subjective but I really didn't understand the severe negative reviews with this listen. Once I started I wanted to listen straight through but, it's a bit long for that. These books reminded me of Clive Cussler's earlier work (those early books are still some of my favorites)

Mac Travis is a guy with outdoor, ocean life skills. I don't dive or boat but I have set up off-grid equipment and fished. So I loved the skills written about in this book set. I'll be getting the rest in series as soon as I can.

In the first book, he runs into an older guy named Wood. I loved the narrator's voice, especially for Wood (think John Wayne's, Rooster Cogburn). They team up and work together. The four books in this series contain quite a few eccentric characters who are humorous to read about. In the first book, Travis calls himself a "sh*t magnet". Very accurate. Most of the escapades Travis gets into is because he's helping his friends. In each book, there are returning characters/villains and new ones being introduced.

The first book is set way before the others, back when Wood and Travis first meet.
The second is about fifteen years later (it might be more)
Then the last two are set about a couple of years apart.

Yes, there is romance but not too much. I don't mind a bit of romance but I like my adventure novels to be primarily action.

These books are not for young kids. Sex and drugs are alluded to and there is definitely violence.

Reasonable story, horrible narration

The storyline was just ok. The first book was repetitive with the same incidents happening over and over. I love all stories revolving around the Keys, but this seemed almost...amateur.

The narration was the worst I've heard on Audible. The narrator has a nice voice, but the cadence he uses is the same for every scene. Picture a love scene and then picture a scene where someone is decapitated. I'm making these up, but the narrator would sound just as cheerful on both. His different character voices are cartoonish and almost comical. It might even be worth getting this to hear his bad guy voice. If there was ever a bad guy that ever lived with a voice like the narrator's version of a bad guy, the bad guy would be figured out as a scoundrel upon your meeting them. It's that bad. Remember Gargamel from the Smurfs? It's kind of like that.

Not quite terrible

While the writer seems well versed in the locale, bridge construction, and diving, nautical operations, he knows nothing about police procedures, medical issues and common sense.
I couldn't wait for the anticlimactic end to the last few hours.

Terrible. Don't bother.

Most boring thing I've ever listened to. I have 500 + books in my library. Bad bad bad

Bad

Narrator is terrible. Makes the book and story unlistenable (is that a word). Could not get into this at all.
