Rats ate his baby daughter while he partied in a disco. Now Horace "Horse" Mann is a drugged-out expat teaching English to criminals in Lima, Peru. Oh, and doing the odd favor for the CIA.
When his Agency contact, Pitt Waters, goes missing, Horse's desperate efforts to find his only friend lead him to a Buddhist ashram on the shores of Lake Titicaca. There, Horse uncovers his friend's involvement with a group of Gaia-worshipping terrorists who want to kill off the human "disease" infecting the earth.
Can Horse find his friend in time? And when he does - will he want to stop him?
Would you listen to The Second Bat Guano War again? Why?
There are very, very few audiobooks I would ever listen to again. Life is too short. I'd rather discover something new!
What other book might you compare The Second Bat Guano War to and why?
Roger Smith's WAKE UP DEAD.
Which character – as performed by J.M. Porup – was your favorite?
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
at thirteen hours long? No. I listenened to this on the way to work in the car. I like the suspense of waiting to see what happens next during the day (my job sucks, but that's another story...)
Any additional comments?
This book is black, brutal, BRUTAL, noir, hard-boiled. This ain't your weak tea "hard-boiled" you see in an airport book rack. This sh*t's the real deal--raw, gritty, nasty. Don't go on this ride unless you're prepared to look into the abyss.
