Ben Chase is a war hero, but a reluctant one. He struggles with bitter memories and feels alienated from the culture to which he has returned. When he claims that a psychopath is stalking him, he has by then made such an outsider of himself that no one believes him. He must resurrect the repressed warrior within to save himself and a woman he comes to love. Heroes need monsters to slay, and they can always find them - within if not without.

Interesting, dark, and disturbing
Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Yes, it was a listen that kept me involved with the character. Chase clearly was dealing with demons, and his actions specifically at the end was a moment I didn't see coming.
How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?
Not sure, nothing to really change.
What about Nick Podehl’s performance did you like?
Yes, Nick's performance was great.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Yes, the racist related component extracted an emotion out of me, the end really surprised me, I was caught off guard.

Flawd Hero takes on a Killer~ 4 STARS~VG~
PLOT: War Hero Ben discovers a killer and hunts him down.
EARLY Koontz still a very good story~ Flawed Vietnam War Hero Ben CHASE likes to drink to escape the memories of killing civilians in Viet Nam. He is pretty much a local hero when his reward is a new CAR~ ending up at local hang out he spots a man sneaking up on a couple making out in their car. Ben's training has him saving the girl but the boy dies of wounds. Ben's post traumatic stress disorder and alcoholic tendencies have the local law doubting his story. Ben is soon receiving phone calls from a nut called "The Judge' who decides he needs to get rid of Ben for wrecking his plans to carry out' his form of justice' for sinners. This story holds the interest and moves along very well. I give it 4 STARS~ for interesting detective work and finding the "JUDGE".....
