This title has potential and builds on the Easy Rawlins saga; a chapter from his middle-age. Easy's 8 to 5 job (and how he got it), his reluctant return to the streets, Mouse's transformation are all elements to keep your interest. Unfortunately, if you have enjoyed the distinctive narration of Stanley Bennett Clay in the three earlier titles, this audiobook will be a big disappointment.

I loved all the previous Easy Rawlins audiobooks. They are great stories, compelling, suspenseful, real. I highly, highly recommend all the books, and this one is no exception.
BUT. The previous narrator, Stanley Bennett Clay, was fantastic. A perfect Easy. In constrast, the narrator for this book, Howard Weinberger...i have to say, he was truly awful. He stumbled over words, chronically mispronounced things, his emphasis was all wrong. It sounded like a kid in school hesitantly reading something for the first time. It was as if he had never seen the script before...and didn't bother to look up the words he didn't understand! It was so jarring, I considered several times going out and buying the book so I could finish it without listening to him. It made me wince. It was really disappointing.
All in all, I would listen to all the previous books, but read this one.
