Publisher's Summary

"My name is Mike Ross and I'm a Ferryman - like in the Greek myth. I didn't ask for, or really want, the job, but I'm trying to make the best of it. Most ghosts are okay and just need a little help to get where they need to go. Unfortunately, there are lots of exceptions, like power-mad psychopaths, spirits still trying to fight battles long since lost, and the worst of the lot - the Skinwalkers. They live vicariously by possessing people and controlling them like puppet masters. Then they toss them aside when they've outlived their usefulness. One of them stole my father 15 years ago, and now I'm going to make that ghost pay."

I really like this series

I really have fun with this series. I listen to a lot of books and always have that moment when I start up a book in a series where I wonder if I'll know what's happening, but he does a concise recap without boring you or overloading you. Mike is doing well, growing, learning, hismcharacter is progressing nicely. Making good choices, with a few bad ones here and there, but he's human. So it stays entertaining and fun.

But, there is this one thing that needs to be discussed. He (author) employs famous dead people throughout both books. The first one was Edgear Alan Poe and a few war generals, I won't spoil whose in this one, but there's some good ones. I have a love/hate relationship with famous dead people having active roles. He does seem to pull it off though. I initially cringed, but they all worked well. At least it wasn't jack the ripper, I hate when when he shows up. I look forward to another book!

UNDERAPPRECIATED Masterpiece!!!

Second book is as good as the first,
and from this moment on
Jim Bernheimer is in my top 10 Favorite Authors
and Jeffrey Kafer performed an outstanding narration.

PS
I was upset to find out that there is no 3rd book as of yet,
but according to the author he has plans
for at least 1 probably 2-3 more books in a dead eye series.

Let's hope they will be available soon.

Quirky, Funny: Worth it!!

I've just converted to the Jim Bernheimer religion!! the book is funny, fast-paced and a breath of fresh air.
I took a gamble some months back and decided to read "confessions of a d-list supervillain" (Another book by Jim Bernheimer) and was amzazed at how much i liked it. i decided to read another one - although i purchased 'pennies for the ferryman', i still havent read it (in fact, i forgot it was in my library until a few minutes ago when i tried to purchase it!!)
i ended up getting the 'skinwalker conspiracies' some days ago, because of the reviews i read about it. all i can say is "a big fat thank you" to those who reviewed it, seeing as it was defintely worth the sleepless night and the loud (crazy woman) sudden bursts of laughter at the office today!
I certainly can't way to acquaint myself with the first book!!

any ideas when book 3 might be coming out? I'll take a day off work, just so i can read it!!

Just as good as the first book...

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Yeah I would, if you liked the first book you'll like the second book too...

What was one of the most memorable moments of Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies?

When mike's spirit was put in a dogs body, it was kinda interesting that he still alive and that he can leave his own physical body and spirit jump.

Which scene was your favorite?

When he met and fought Lee Harvey Oswald.

Any additional comments?

I would recommend this book to people who are into supernatural books and i just wanna know when are we getting book three so we know what's gonna happen to Mike Ross and his group of spirits.

Entertainment steady.

Would you listen to Dead Eye: The Skinwalker Conspiracies again? Why?

I really enjoyed this audio book and I will definitely listen again. The narrator did an awesome job! The story was believeable and scary yet well seasoned with lite humor throughout. I couldn't stop listening. This book maintained the intensity of the first book in this series. It really is a must read if you like a mix of paranormal, snarky quick wit attitude and suspense.

Little Cheesy?...Oh Yeah, But Oh, So Good!

I haven't listen to book 1 in the series, but this story makes a great stand alone. I've actually listen to this book at least three times over. I love it because no matter where you start listening in the middle of the story Mike Ross's dry humor will have you laughing out loud. There are so many scenes that are my favorite, but I absolutely loved it when Mike and his companion where turned into dogs.

The narration was perfect! Jeffrey really nailed Mike Ross's voice, and personality.

This story was funny as h***! I will definitely be on the look out for more books by Jim Bernheimer.

The good, the bad, the ugly, and the undead.

If it had been a print book, I would probably have dumped it after the first 100 pages (my personal litmus test). However. I came back to it after a few days of family madness, and decided that I was the problem, not the writing. Does not grab the reader like Iron Druid, but improves as it goes along. No spoiler alerts here, just read the publisher's quick summary for plot basics. Know that there is good plot development and characterization.
JK does his usual high grade work interpreting the characters and bringing depth to their personalities.
This book was provided in exchange for an honest review, but I will probably purchase other books in the series.

The second book is even better

The first book in the series is good, but this one is better. If you liked the first story you'll definitely approve of this one. The pace of the tale picks up and the stakes rise rapidly. The only bad thing about this book is that the follow up has still not been written. The author says he is working on it and I am looking forward to it. This is definitley a series to watch in the future.

Dependable fantasy/mystery series

What did you like best about this story?

I am a sucker for this genre that blends mystery or crime in parallel universe of ghosts or wizards etc. ala Dresden files, The Iron Druid or even Monster hunters international. A common thread here is wisecracking long suffering hero's.

Have you listened to any of Jeffrey Kafer’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I very much enjoyed this reading

Any additional comments?

Although not really a distraction, this book reads as if each chapter was written like a monthly installment in a mystery magazine or web series, although I have no personal knowledge of this. On several occasions we are reminded of an incident that needed no reiteration unless the listener had been away from the story for an extended period of time.

The Adventure Continues . . . inventive and fun

On this second book of the series, the author's writing tightened up. The first book had more laugh out loud moments, but this one has some interesting fight scenes. I'm not even into fight scenes, but it was fascinating to hear such inventive man vs ghost(s) battles.

The story takes such creative spins and liberties with historical figures that it keeps a reader curious. The pace is fast. Jim Bernheimer drops the strange "in the previous episode" recap that headed chapters in the first book, which would be nice for people who read very slowly with time between chapters, but was a pace breaker for people who kept on going.

Even with all the action packed adventures, switched loyalties, betrayals, and unexpected alliances, this time there's romance and Mike finally "gets the girl" and it's nice that the book stays clean and light hearted despite touching on some dark topics that really exist in our society, like dog fighting.

I thought the first book should have been in the Comedy section, it made me laugh. This one still had some humor, but not as much. It makes a person smile at times, but it has more adventure in it than laughs. Still, a great story.

not as good as he first part.

Any additional comments?

this is the second part of dead eye: pennies for the ferryman. it literally carries on where the other left off which means if you have listened to pennies of the ferryman some time ago you need to re-listen to that one first (which I did)..<br/>although Michael is learning how to deal with stronger foes the book seemed to be too long for the plot to keep you gripped and rooting for the hero.<br/>Jeffrey kafer performed both books well.
