Publisher's Summary

Tough, smart, and struggling to stay afloat, August Snow is the embodiment of Detroit. The son of an African American father and a Mexican mother, August grew up in Detroit's Mexicantown and joined the Detroit police only to be drummed out of the force by a conspiracy of corrupt cops and politicians. But August fought back; he took on the city and got himself a $12 million wrongful dismissal settlement that left him low on friends. He has just returned to the house he grew up in after a year away and quickly learns he has many scores to settle.
It's not long before he's summoned to the palatial Grosse Point Estates home of business magnate Eleanore Paget. Powerful and manipulative, Paget wants August to investigate the increasingly unusual happenings at her private wealth management bank. But detective work is no longer August's beat, and he declines. A day later, Paget is dead of an apparent suicide - which August isn't buying for a minute. What begins as an inquiry into Eleanore Paget's death soon drags August into a rat's nest of Detroit's most dangerous criminals, from corporate embezzlers to tattooed mercenaries. From the wealthy suburbs to the near-postapocalyptic remains of the bankrupt city's factory districts, August Snow is a fast-paced tale of murder, greed, sex, economic cyber-terrorism, race, and urban decay in modern Detroit.

Potboiler ruined by bad reading

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

I am enjoying listening to descriptions of Detroit. The author seems content to portray all wealthy white people in an insulting cliche manner but his protagonist is still interesting.

What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

The protagonist, August Snow, is a promising lead character for stories of this nature.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Mirron Willis?

Anyone who might read ahead a bit and learned to pronounce the words properly. A reader with some familiarity with black dialect would be appreciated. The reader seemed to be trying to stifle a constant ongoing yawn throughout the entire tale.

Was August Snow worth the listening time?

The reader wore me out. I almost dumped the story because of his annoying style of reading.

Excellently narrated

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

Captivating from the stand point of anti cop feeling in the US at the moment. Ex cop who sued DPD and won.

What was one of the most memorable moments of August Snow?

Mixed races for Mom and Dad. Interesting how the protagonist belong to both black and hispanic backgrounds where parents loved each other.

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

Very smooth and strong narration

Could you see August Snow being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

Yes. It is the American way to have a 'shoot em up' movie with the good guys always winning.

Any additional comments?

Excellent depiction of Detroit and it's inhabitants. Very eye opening
