Blind detective is kicking butt & taking names
Good noir detective story.
Yes. Couple of my friends like this sort of stories. I will definitely recommend this book to them.
Yes, the narrator did a good job that way.
Not really. This sort of stories are good for books or maybe a mini-series on tv. Not really a movie material.
The Chinese gang, the murder mystery and impending war - all gave the book a mix of daredevil and gotham vibes. At places, the "set in future" plot sounded like it is setup like that just for the heck of it. But otherwise, the story was passable as an ok, one time listen.
A review copy was gifted to me at no charge. In return, I am happy to provide an honest review. Also at no charge.
