Publisher's Summary

Jack is hired to find a legendary Japanese sword, a katana stolen from the Hiroshima Peace Museum and brought to New York City. Central characters include the members of a weird Japanese cult, a young Japanese businessman (who is the brother of a character killed in Legacies), and his three Yakuza bodyguards, plus Hank Thompson, the Kicker cult leader from Bloodline. The cult, the businessman, the Yakuza, and the Kickers are looking for the sword as well.Following Jack's usual m.o., he maneuvers all sides into a bloody melee from which he plans to waltz away with the fabled katana. Of course, when things don't go as planned, Jack must improvise (and he hates to improvise).By the Sword takes F. Paul Wilson's trademark breakneck pacing and interweaving storylines to a new level.

The horror! The horror! (The narration, that is)

My God, what an awful, awful listening experience. My ears are burning. Please, never, never let Dick Hill narrate ANYTHING again. He is beyond awful. He slurs, mumbles, drags through his words and sounds positively geriatric. Absolutely dreadful.

It was only my sheer commitment to the story and wanting to know what happened that kept me going through these last two books. I can only assume there must have been a very good reason to switch narrators this late in a series, but please NEVER do this again!

Anyway, back to Christopher Price now so I can enjoy the conclusion of the series. But I needed an ear enema and a good lie-down after listening to the last two.

Horrible narration

Would you try another book from F. Paul Wilson and/or Dick Hill?

While I love this series i couldn't stomach this one. This Dick Hill fellow in my opinion is horrible. I barely made it through the previous book he narrated, but I cant finish this one. Total letdown.

Would you ever listen to anything by F. Paul Wilson again?


How could the performance have been better?

Stick with the original narrator.
