Publisher's Summary

Who do you trust? Who can you depend on?

James Beltz's modern-day gunslinger, known to the rest of us as DJ Slaughter, returns in this thrilling sequel. Book one left us with a massive cliffhanger. Book two serves to answer all of your burning questions in the very first chapter. However, in a sudden, neck-snapping plot twist, you will only be left with more questions. Nice job, James. Very nice job indeed...

The first book was a break-neck pace of thrilling adventure, reminding this reviewer of the first season of the Fox TV series "24". You know, before it went downhill and got all politically correct. But I digress...this sequel only allows you enough pause to catch your breath and dive deeper into the characters you have come to love. Along with an introduction to a few more you will quickly find yourself attached to. By the time you get to the end, you will feel like you know them all personally.

But prepare yourself. The world is littered with villains. James very effectively reminds us that they can spring out at you from places you least expect. This time, DJ has met his match. And how do you beat someone that is better than you? I guess you'll have to listen to the book to find out....

This author belongs in a category of his own!

This is the second book in the SLAUGHTER series. I found myself looking at the time remaining and wishing it would move at a slower pace. I simply didn't want this book to end.
WHITE OUT picks up exactly where the first book ended, so with a continuous story I would strongly suggest listening to these books in order. The first book also gives you the motive for the second.
Anyway, this book is high octane, action packed and super fast pace. I very rarely compare a new author to well known established authors BUT this author is an exception. He belongs up there with Greaney, Taylor and easily Thor!
This book is full of trigger happy mercenaries, an assassin who feels he's been wronged, a few Russians, the FBI and DJ Slaughter with his girlfriend. And everyone is trying to stay alive.
Shawn Milo does a fantastic job narrating.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION.

Not Mitch Rapp, but still a great listen

Was so very refreshing to listen to a book, where the author has a good command of the English language that he doesnt need to resort to cursing. A good listen, keep em coming

Too much guilt to be credible

D J Slaughter spends way too much time wallowing in guilt to be credible as a guy who kills an uncounted number of people (maybe 30 or more in just this book - I lost count) in this book (and the first one) as easily as breathing. I
He is a good guy with a conscience which is good but his constant inner dialogue of guilt and self-recrimination doesn’t ring true. I can’t imagine Jack Reacher or Will Robie mired in that much guilt. I liked the first two books well enough and think the series has potential but I would welcome way less of the internal angst.

We have a New Top Author!!

My new favorite author is James Beltz. My new favorite protagonist is D.J.Slaughter. James has brought new and very welcome creativity to the difficult job of telling exciting and unpredictable action stories that truly are non-stop readers. James Beltz switches the first person narrative around from time to time so you see what is in the minds of the other characters. Very refreshing. Like others said to me: "If you like Lee Child, or L.T. Ryan, you WILL like James Beltz!" I absolutely recommend his books. Enjoy!!

a tad juvenile, but still enjoyable

There's no swearing in this violent, cruel story! The main character doesn't drink either, but he has no qualms killing scum of the earth. His tactical skills are a tad unbelievable, and the romance is a bit sophomoric, but we like the people, the good guys, that is. The bad guys are really bad, no morals, no ethics, no remorse.

The story can end here, but there is still more to come!

That said, there are some word errors in the book that could be fixed with a good editor, who sadly, doesn't seem to exist anymore. Missing past participles (pluperfect), the difference between may and might, sat and set, "drug" is not the past tense of "drag,' incorrect prepositions (I have a healthy respect OF what you're capable of) should not be in a professionally published book.

It's unclear if the other errors are those of the author or the narrator. Some were quite humorous.
1. Our hero nicknamed the bad guy Sharkbait. However, at one point the narrator calls him Shark Tank! I laughed.
2. He lurked to a stop. (lurched)
3. The snow was freezing him with stinging condemnation. (condensation)

You're not supposed to laugh your head off when the hero is in danger and people are having their faces blown off.

The narration is much improved over the first book until about halfway through, where he reverts to his long confusing pauses between words that aren't even phrases.

I will continue with the series despite all these smh moments because I like the main characters, and YAY, we get to go stamp out evil all over the world!

Juvenile in total

I can’t figure out what the people giving this story such high marks were hearing that I wasn’t. The dialogue, action scenes and overall tone of the book is just juvenile in nature. The number of people killed pointlessly and in gruesome detail is way over the top, and final deal breaker was the death of an infant and, oddly, the car dealer. I only finished the book by fast forwarding to the point that I reduced the story time by a third, at least. The fact that I missed nothing of the story doing that says it all. I’m done with Slaughter and Beltz both.

Distracted by the sexism

I bought the second book despite my reservations about the first, after falling for the cliffhanger. And as far as shoot-em-up entertainment fables go, it was fine. But just about every line of dialogue from the female characters made me cringe. In fact, it was like reading what a 14 year old boy thinks adult women would be like. Sure they are "smart" (as are all of the good guys) but they are often referred to as "girls", and one of them proudly defines herself as a "chick", with the 14-year old male definition of exactly what that means. Hard pass on the rest of the series. And I love action, suspense and crime thriller series, so that is saying something.

Ugh.
