Publisher's Summary

A routine investigation into corruption at a North Californian airport sets in motion shocking events that lead hard man Jim Bishop and world-weary ex-cop boss Scott Weiss into the center of a massive criminal conspiracy.

The trail of blood that ensues brings them dangerously closer to Weiss's old nemesis, an expert gun-for-hire known only as Shadowman, and to a plan set to climax with an act of audacious violence and a murder that would be impossible for any killer but one....

Fantastic Read

I couldn't stop listening to this book. Andrew
Klavan is maybe the best story teller that I have
ever heard or read. You will want to listen to the
books in order: Dynamite Road then Shotgun Alley
then Damnation Street.

very impressed!

I knew nothing about this author, but took a chance based on the preview I listened to. I really enjoyed the characters, the suspense, and the fact that the characters all have their own faughts. I really enjoyed the author as narrator and I plan to listen to his follow up to this book next.

Gripping taut crime thriller

The master of action and suspense, Andrew Klavan has done it again. His plotting and prose is endlessly rewarding. His performance of narration and characters surpasses that of most professional actors. I cannot wait to listen to the next in the series. I also found his performance of his book Empire of Lies and Michael Knowles performing Klavan’s Another Kingdom books almost impossible to “put down.” Perfect for binge listening!

One sitting listening

Well worth the listen. Plot twists, not so much, plot amazing executed. Enjoy the detail. Dialogue like I am there. Able to know a minor character in a paragraph like a good friend. Best one so far.

Excellent

The story is great, the performance is better. I see people giving this book poor reviews because of fowl language and talk of sex. If those things bother you, the book is not for for you. But those things are reality, and how do you pull someone into.a story that doesn't resemble the world we live in? Klavan has a really good way of telling stories the way reality and the narrative requires them to be. Great book.

Awesome!!!

Love Klavan. Loved this story. Well told by the author himself. I almost couldn't put down the iPhone. But, unfortunately I had to when the 3 year was in the room (language). Otherwise, great story, and well told. Looking forward to other audio books from Klavan.

#4 in a row And not a YAWN in SIGHT

THE KLAVAN truly does his research; the man WORKS!!!!! I was already a HUGE fan on UTUBE. Now he’s rescued me from the doldrums of a desert of disappointed trial & error other authors. I truly anticipate with joy the next listen.

Disappointing book, flat and uninteresting

This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

I am not really sure, I am going back to James Lee Burke, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, etc.

What could Andrew Klavan have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

I question whether or not this book had a good editor or publisher, I found Bishop and Weiss characters very unemotional and one-dimensional

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Andrew Klavan?

Needed a professional narrator like George Guidall, Titus Welliver, Will Patton, anyone but Scott Brick

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

I am not sure but I can only assume the author gave the book his maximum effort

Any additional comments?

This is probably my first and last Andrew Klavan listen, sorry Mr. Klavan
