Publisher's Summary

Ten women, each one between a rock that might be her tombstone and a hard place that it may take a gun to blast her way out of. Author Thad Brown's collection of hard bitten, bullet paced fiction centered on women embroiled in violence and danger takes pulp to a whole new level. Being a woman often means fighting against all odds. And the women in Brown's tales are charter members of The Smoking Gun Sisterhood. This is a fantastic, double-barrelled collection from author Thad Brown and Pro Se Productions.

    Story
    "Interesting Collection of Variations on a Theme"
    Would you listen to The Smoking Gun Sisterhood again? Why?

    Yes. The author recounts the stories of very different women united by one thing - the possession of a high caliber hand gun.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    All the lead characters are intriguing, but I suppose the heroine of "New Day at the Office'" is my favorite due to her moral struggle to do the right thing.


    What about Aisling Gray’s performance did you like?

    The narrator's performance skillfully brought out the personality of each of the many characters.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    "Strong Women!"

    I enjoyed this compendium of stories. Each one was intriguing , well-developed and ended with some moral structure that justified the way the tales were told. It was difficult to predict the outcome early in each story, so I was always trying to guess, but rarely was I correct as to how it would end.

    The narration was excellent and each character's qualities came through the reader effortlessly. It was as if I, the listener, was put on Autopilot and the stories just opened up before me. We'll done Miss Gray.

    Story
    "Girls with guns... and character!"

    This is an impressive collection of novelettes and novellas with fully fleshed-out stories and three dimensional characters, all joined by the theme of women with guns. It's sometimes hard to believe that this was written by a man, because the female characters are very realistic. The female narrator also helps you feel that these stories, about many different women in totally different situations, that this is an all-female project. The feeling of realism and detail in so many different walks of life and different places makes you believe the author has had a lot of varied life experience.
    My only problem with the stories is that they are a bit too perfectly wrapped up. Did I say a bit? Actually, every loose end is tied, every tiny hole is plugged, nothing is left in question. Real life simply isn't that way. But thr stories are good, suspenseful, and, in some cases, as sexy as the theme of girls with guns would naturally lead you to expect.
    I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

    "Great voice. Look forward to hearing it again."

    Ms. Gray's diction and tone suggest a level of intelligence and education worthy of stronger material than this book. I would love to hear her read something that she could sink her teeth into: Pynchon, Hillerman, or King for example. I look forward to hearing her again, and hope the folks at Audiobooks know a gen when they hear one.

    "Girls with Guns"

    I should say women, but girls has a better ring to it. This is a collection of stories, some you can relate to and some that will probably sound pretty fanciful, in which women are the hero’s. The women are packing the heat or have the street and fighting skills to kick bad guy butt and come out alive when the fighting is over.

    There are multiple really good stories in here that bring out the best in women who are in really hard situations. Some of the heroines have the training to take on the evil they encounter while others find the courage when confronted with malevolence. My favorites were the biker mama that goes up against a rival gang to try to save a young girl from gang rape and eventual life as a sex slave, the bank robbers who are really just desperate mom’s at their wits end, the PI who invents a great story to save her PI friend and mentor, the FBI agent called into investigate child kidnapping killers who confronts a woman of such evil she has to decide if she should arrest her or kill her, a story of a young mafia queen told from opposite, but parallel, perspectives (each story has very different endings), a grieving heiress being set up by a guy she just met, and a hit woman who decides enough is enough.

    Each story gets inside the woman’s head so you understand just how she got to where she is and why she is going to go up against the odds and fight her way out of a lethal situation. There is real life in this listen and situations that happen every day.

    I’ll be honest, Ainsling Gray wasn’t my favorite narrator for this material. She was very inconsistent in the quality of her voices. Some of her female voices were phenomenal and her accents were pretty good but her narration style left something to be desired and her male voices generally were not the best. In the end, she was just OK for me for this listen. Would I listen to a book she narrated again? Yes, she wasn’t the best I have heard but she definitely wasn’t the worst, either. And, again, some of her voices were very good. I just didn’t care for the tone and cadence she used for the actual narration parts of the book and there is a significant chunk of time spent in this area.

    I received this audiobook for free through Audiobook Boom! in exchange for an honest review.
