This great series is getting even better
Yes, he is a great narrator and Bad Deeds is one of his best yet
Bad Deeds is the second book in the Hunter series by best-selling thriller writer and award-winning investigative journalist Robert Bidinotto. His debut novel into the Fiction genre, Hunter: A Thriller was a tremendous success and this is the much awaited sequel. If you want, you can check out my review for Hunter: A Thriller here, on Audible, I enjoyed the book very much and compared it to Without Remorse by Tom Clancy.
The story opens with an event that also took place in the first book, but seen from a different perspective. I won’t say anything else in regards to this plot line. After that we join the two main characters, investigative journalist Dylan Lee Hunter and CIA operative Annie Woods, as they spend some well-deserved R&R at a secluded cabin in the Allegheny National Forest. As in their previous adventure, the two are deeply in love and are making plans for the future. Mr. Bidinotto turns on the romance to the max and manages to create some really special moments. The two lovebirds are very happy, but things are about to change.
When the couple ventures into the civilized World for a cup of coffee, they are pulled into something that will threaten everything they’ve worked for so hard, the mutual trust and their ideals as human beings. There is a suspenseful fight scene reminiscent of a Jack Reacher novel, a great trip down memory lane for one of our characters, a group of eco-terrorists, corruption, politics, mysteries, murders and payback.
Bad Deeds is a Thriller first and foremost, filled with mystery and non- stop action, peppered with romantic moments and driven by a great story and amazing characters. I really loved how Robert Bidinotto evolved the character arcs for Dylan, Annie and Garrett, enriching them with every occasion. They all really feel alive and real. The plot is much more complicated than in the previous book, with lots of twists and turns, while the simple black and white / bad vs. evil aspects from Hunter aren’t as easily distinguishable in this one.
I read over 650 books in the last 10 years and I’m glad that these two thrillers by Robert Bidinotto situated themselves in my personal top 25. Mr. Bidinotto writes like the old masters of Suspense and Espionage, I can’t help but to put him alongside names like Tom Clancy, Robert Ludlum and Vince Flynn.
The audiobook version of Bad Deeds is performed by Conor Hall and like with Hunter: A Thriller he did a great job with the narration. He becomes mesmerizing after just a few seconds, reading with talent and passion, giving life to the characters, immersing the listener into the atmosphere with different voices, accents and acting appropriately, as each situation arises.
As I told you before, the Hunter series by Robert Bidinotto is the only experience I had with Conor Hall, but it is enough for me to consider him one of the best voices in the Audiobook Industry with a bright and promising future in front of him.
I’m looking forward to Hunter #3 and to more audiobooks performed by this great narrator.

This one's for Wsyne!
Conor Hall did a fantastic job with this and the previous book (Hunter).
This review is for Wayne, and NO I have never spoken to or met him but I appreciate the feedback he leaves for me in his reviews of books I have reviewed!
I would also like to recommend to him an anyone else who purchases books using kindle's whispersync, I have found the kindle unlimited to be extremely cost effective. Many books are read and listen for free and if it's a read for free only book, you "borrow" the book for free up to ten at a time BUT then you still can purchase the audio version for the reduced price, many as low as $1.99.
This is the second book in this series (Hunter is the first)I thoroughly enjoyed both books. The hero of these books (Dylan Hunter) possesses a combination of recognizable traits from a few popular characters. He's ex CIA, he's a loner with extraordinary combat skills, he believes in justice (especially for the underdog), he's more then then financially secure and has a fiancé who is currently in the CIA. She of course is on again off again as she becomes scared of the violence he is capable of wreaking on those he feels are deserving. I won't spoil anything for anyone but she does learn her lesson. Dylan is like a knight in shining armor with an almost too pure sense of right and wrong. If it's the good guy he'll risk his life to save theirs, if it's the bad guy he'll risk his life to take theirs. You can kind of see where this is going. What really puts him front and center is that he is a reporter for the local newspaper which also gets him close to the people he needs to be close to, those bad boys wanting their 5 minutes in the spot light or on the front page. Plenty of action in both books, some very thought out plans and with each book the protagonists characters are developed just a little more.
