The Institute, a government-funded facility, is researching a newly discovered and frightening variation on human DNA.

Don't start with this late entry in the series!

I'm a big, big fan of the Repairman Jack series and have waited for years for the books to be available on Audio. Why the publishers have to start with the two latest entries in the the series is anyone's guess, and too, too bad. The first five or six Repairman Jack books are much less serialized and the story can be picked up at any time, but the final entries really require some dedication and to be read in order.

I've never much cared for Dick Hill as a narrator although his voice is bland enough not to be a major issue. In this case his thick Rust Belt accent is totally inappropriate for Jersey-born Jack and even worse for Iowa-bred Gia, but the production values are fair and the book moves along fine. Still, overall disappointing to true diehard RJ fans.

I truly hope that this confusing offering doesn't turn off potential RJ readers, who should really go back to "The Tomb" and get the story from the beginning.

Help,Jack!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

I would find Jack and see if he could fix this by having Dick Hill removed and Christopher Price read in his place. Hill has no sense of the character whatsoever.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Bloodline?

When I had to stop listening and just read the book was my most memorable moment.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

The narrator detracted from the book by opening his mouth and reading.


Was Bloodline worth the listening time?

Any other Jack book is great excepting the two Dick Hill read.


Any additional comments?

Please allow a reading of Bloodline and By The Sword by Christopher Price.
The Dick Hill reading is a farce.
