excellent creepy modern fantasy.

What did you love best about The Domino Men?

it's the sequel to the somnambulist but you don't need to have read the somnambulist to enjoy and understand this one. it's dark, funny, creepy, fantastical, cool.

What other book might you compare The Domino Men to and why?

the somnambulist. same series and author.

What does Gerard Doyle bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

he's so damned posh.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

A macabre decent story

This is the first book I have been exposed to from J.Barnes. So, I can't compare it to his other work. Evaluating The Domino Men on it's own I would have to say that it started off really strong. By the end of the first part I was really hooked, but the last few hours of the second part lost momentum and seemed to drag. The only other complaint that I have is that Barnes goes above and beyond to tie all loose plot strings by the end of the book, but never explains why the two characters are called the Domino Men. You are left only to assume. Morbid humor, characters with blunt human flaws, a conspiricy thriller worth a listen.
