In this fourth mystery on Deep Creek Lake, Mac Faraday finds himself up to his eyeballs in mobsters and federal agents.
After an attempted hit ends badly with two of his men dead, mobster Tommy Cruze arrives in Spencer, Maryland, to personally supervise the execution of the witness responsible for putting him behind bars - Archie Monday!
Mac Faraday believes he has his work cut out for him in protecting his lady love from one of the most dangerous leaders in organized crime; but when bodies start dropping in his lakeshore resort town, things may be hotter than even he can handle.
"Carr is a very gifted novelist. Her mystery novels, both the Mac Faraday and Lovers in Crime Series, are phenomenal. Her ability to keep the reader guessing, as well as her plotlines that flow so effortlessly as they work up to the big reveal, always make her novels a fun endeavor, and I look forward to even more of her work as this year unfolds." (Shana Benedict, ABookVacation)
"All of Lauren Carr's mysteries are interesting and fun to read. Her characters are well-rounded and ring true, which brings a believability to the stories. Avid readers will be glad that new installments are on the way." (Edie Dykeman, BelleOnline, Mystery Reviewer)
"I must say, I truly enjoyed reading this book! I found myself waking up slightly early for work just to finish a couple chapters! Not only was this book captivating, I found myself laughing at Gnarly, the ever so lovable and rambunctious German Shepherd! I look forward to reading the next book by Lauren Carr!" (Debbie Hill, Miss Book Lovers)

Who done it? ...and why?
quick-paced, engaging, fun
One specific book? That's tough! Blast From the Past follows in the great tradition of pulp page-turners. Their are hints of Patterson, Christie and Grafton
Gnarly of course! For humans, I'd have to say Bogie.
Just when you thought you've outrun your past, you turn to find it standing in front of you!
This was a fun summer listen. The characters were rich and engaging. The voice talent does not disappoint.

Another Gnarly tale
I have not listened/read that many audio book as of yet, however Blast from the Past would have to be one of my favorite ones so far. I felt like Dan Lawson did a great job bringing the characters to life with his voice.
For me the most memorable moment in the Blast from the Past was when Mac got a call from David to tell him that one of the police cars had been stolen. This was a memorable moment for me because I felt the same confusion and shock as Mac at being told that a police car had been stolen. It was also the beginning of the fast paced plot.
I felt like Dan Lawson did a great job bringing the characters to life with his voice.
I personally felt like the Blast from the Past as well as the rest of the Mac Faraday Mystery books would all make for a great movie. A great tag line for the blast from the past would be Gnarly and Crew vs mobsters!
