Marathon is a quiet little Texas town, and it's getting quieter. Kids are vanishing, disappearing like tumbleweeds in the desert wind. Somebody - or something - is taking them.
Action. Adventure. Romance. Suspense. The Bends is a supernatural thriller roller coaster ride!

Epic!

So, as a fan of Urban Fantasy, Mysteries, and Thrillers, I totally enjoyed the juxtaposition of the Jack Reacher archetype, itinerant musician, and almost paranormal. I LOVE finding new series I'll be able to start now and reread later, as new books come out. I'd definitely recommend to friends who love Urban Fantasy or Police procedurals. It helped that the narrator is Luke Daniels, as I'm already a huge fan of his voice acting. Loved it!

It will keep you wondering what's going to happen

This is the second book from Bart Hopkins that I have read and listened to the Audio version also.
The first one is "Dead Ends". A combination of short stories which gives you the feel of having landed in the twilight-zone.
"The Bends" is a supernatural thriller has an actual connection to the story "Recalculating" in Dead Ends.
It is not necessary to have read "Recalculating" but it was fun to have that connection.
You get some hints along the way but it will not become clear till near the end of the book.
Seeing this book is named "The Bends: Kane Montgomery #1" I'm hoping to see a Kane Montgomery # 2 in the future.
This book was narrated by Luke Daniels. He did a wonderful job and it was a pleasure to listen to the story.
