Publisher's Summary

Just when his life seemed to be getting back on track, Detective Zach Forrest finds himself in the midst of a whirlwind of treachery, lies, and mayhem that threatens to unravel the delicate balance of power in Easytown. 

Everything comes crashing down on Forrest when a rampaging cyborg attacks him, disrupting his investigation into the death of a lowly thumper club doorman who knew too much. Before he can determine his next move, a beautiful, mysterious evidence clerk lands on his doorstep, forcing her way into his life despite the NOPD's rules against fraternization. 

Meanwhile, to combat the rapidly increasing number of cybernetically enhanced criminals, the police chief assigns him the difficult task of tracking down and stopping the street doctors who build the abominations at any cost. 

But, will it cost Zach more than he'd expected?

Wonderful series, and this book is no exception!

I loved the other Easytown Novels... they were just fantastic, and this book is no exception! There's the classic, gritty feel that you get when reading a Noir Mystery, while still holding fast to the envisioned futuristic city of New Orleans, and it's truly wonderful... it's a finely crafted juxtaposition of the old and the new! I've mentioned in other Easytown Novel reviews, that our hardboiled protagonist, Detective Zack Forrest has girl problems, but that's nothing compared to the trouble that he's gotten into with the fairer sex in this tale! In addition to his "women issues", Zack's job is on the line. The powers that be have Zack in their sights, but that's not going  to stop Zack from doing his job. He's gonna stop the manufacture and trade of a highly addictive, toxic street drug! Plus he is dealing with a "chop-shop" that's giving humans illegal cybernetic upgrades! Daniel Penz has become one of my favorite narrators, primarily due to his stellar work on the Easytown series!  Grab this audiobook, and let Penz take you into Easytown... the dark, underbelly of the New Orleans of the future!

Best EasyTown book yet

Once again Parker and Penz put out another fantastic audiobook. I found myself caught up again in this series cheering on Forrest just as much as wanting to punch him in the face for being an idiot. I don't think I've ever listened to anything quite like it. I just hope it isn't the last in the series. My mind is racing as to where Parker could take it from here and I just know that my mind wont do it justice. Hands down one of my favorite series to listen to!

Love it🧡

Parker and Penz are oh so good. I love the mix of harshness and humor, grit and gore. Clever writing a marvelous mystery in a realistic futuristic New Orleans. Forrest is crazily likeable even when he's being dick. I have throughly enjoyed all the books in the Easytown series. I was given a copy of this book at my request and am voluntary leaving a review.

West End Droids

Another great book in an amazingly entertaining series. Detective Zach Forest continues to be his typical hardass, rule breaking self, trying to find out who is doing illegal cybernetic enhancements and supplying Easytown with an addicting drug. Along the way, he encounters cyborgs and beautiful women (of course!) while endangering his career with the NOPD. If you are looking for a well-written cyberpunk series with traces of noir detective novels, this is the one you need to read or listen to. While set in a futuristic New Orleans, it contains hints of detectives like Sam Spade, complete with Zach's penchant for fedora hats. Brian Parker has developed a world full of droids, clones, cyborgs, drones and artificial intelligence, all of which seem believable and demand to be made into a movie. His characters are well-developed and I feel like I know Zach and friends. The Detective is determined to solve cases at the expense of love, life and limb, and his stubborn insistence on doing so causes him many problems. His snarky attitude and quips, even during times of extreme pain and duress, make him one of my favorite characters in current books. The ending hints at further books in the series (YEAH!) and I look forward to following Zach's adventures. The narrator, Daniel Penz, does an absolutely awesome job, with perfect pacing and voices that perfectly match the characters. His performance added a lot to my listening enjoyment. I was given the chance to listen to the audiobook version of this book through Audiobook Boom! and chose to review it.

Nothing but Trouble

The main character seems to run into nothing but trouble, often of his own making. He is a frustrating, flawed but ultimately good guy and always interesting. The Easytown series is well written, interesting and has enough twists and turns to keep you listening. Daniel Penz is a good narrator and keeps the story moving along.

Another unique 5 star book by this author

West End Droids. Just love the whole series and book 3 is no exception. Unique and oh so entertaining. They just suck you into Easytown s world. Sci-fi at its best. So realistic you'll think your there with Det Zac Forest. I do hope that Brian Parker will find the time to write more in this series. I received a free copy of this audio book at my own request and voluntarily leave this honest review.

Great conclusion to the trilogy

Very satisfying conclusion to Detective Zach Forrest's story. Kept me gripped throughout. Narration was above and beyond us usual. I wish there were more novels in this series. "This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review."

Just as good as the rest of the series

I am not sure how much more I can say about the Easytown novels that I haven't already mentioned in the previous two reviews. This is just a great series with perfectly fitting narration. I just hope there will be more books to come. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.
