If you could sum up Ameriguns in three words, what would they be?
Kept me guessing!
Who was your favorite character and why?
Nathanial - the author created a believable, likeable character that the listener could relate to.
What does Eric Michael Summerer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Eric Michael Summerer really brought the story to life! He deftly managed the entire cast of characters - I forgot I was listening to a narrator and thought I was listening to a thriller of a television show in the background!
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I loved the scenes with Nathaniel and his dog. The love and care he felt for his pet told me more about his character than anything else in the book!
Any additional comments?
I did not realize that the Audible version of Ameriguns included a prequel until it started playing and hearing the story "flip" to include the mastermind's perspective was a stroke of genius!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that this writer/narrator duo return for more Audible thrillers in the future!

Exciting start; good character buildup. Moved along decently till Nate kept getting tangled up with his boss and then shot at by his boss. FBI would not keep these two going without some severe restrictions placed. Too many near misses. Narrator did a fine job with right tempo and voice inflections. Nice twist on who was behind the killings. Will try another book by this author.
Any additional comments?
When Nathan, a field agent for the FBI, gets a panicked phone call from his sister-in-law telling him that a gunman was killing guests at the wedding she and her husband were attending, he grabs his own gun and rushes to the scene. Unable to get a clear line on the killer, he is himself shot and watches his brother die. Months later, after a long and painful recovery, he's back at work - and more apparently senseless shootings are terrifying the city. Why are they taking p!ace? Are they connected somehow? If so, who or what is orchestrating them?
Eric Michael Summerer narrates this intriguing thriller with feeling. His pacing is excellent and the range of voices used to differentiate speakers is consistent and clear. Pleasant to hear, he really compliments the text and helps bring the story alive.
And it is a good story, too, not only as an action thriller but also in conveying the devastation caused by such attacks to the survivors and loved ones of the victims. It also highlights both the pros and cons of carrying guns. An interesting addition at the end of the book tells the story of how it all began from the perpetrators perspective: a clever device, and rather sad.
I was gifted this book by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. It was one which I enjoyed and can recommend to other readers who enjoy well written action and intrigue, with strong characterisation and just a touch of political concern. I will definitely be looking out for further books by Scott King.
