From New York Times best-selling author Stephanie Tyler, writing as S. E. Jakes....
Everyone knows that Prophet - former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass - works alone. But his boss at Extreme Escapes, Ltd. has just assigned Proph a new partner and a case haunted by ghosts from Proph's past. Suddenly he has to confront both head-on.
Tom Boudreaux - failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck - is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job. Still, he's determined to succeed this time, despite being partnered with Prophet, EE's most successful, lethal, and annoying operative, on a case that resurrects his own painful past.
Together Prophet and Tom must find a way to take down killers in the dangerous world of underground cage matches while fighting their own dangerous attraction. When they find themselves caught in the crossfire, these two loners must trust each other and work together to escape their ghosts...or pay the price.

Audio edition, narrated by Adam North
8 hours and 3 min
I was excited about this whole series being done in audio, and they were all released recently this December. I originally rated this book 3,5 stars (the ebook), but I've bumped up my rating, since I've read the whole series and have grown to love Prophet and Tom and I feel this first book deserves more than 3,5 stars.
The Hell & High Water series is the only work of Adam North on Audible, so he's a new narrator for me. He does a good job narrating. His voice is deep and rough, so it fitted with the characters.
I liked it, but I didn't quite love it. Or, it's more mixed. I think he does a great Prophet voice, and overall narration. Tom's voice isn't very good, though, in my opinion. He should have had more Southern drawl. North just draws out the words instead of having a drawl to the words. I don't know how to explain it better.
All in all, I enjoyed this audio, and I recommend it.
The jury is still out on this one
