Publisher's Summary

Nick McCarty decides after ten years of black ops assassinations it's time for a change. Against the wishes of his shadow government bosses he has inexplicably managed to become a best-selling author with a string of novels about an assassin named Diego. The novels have made him world famous and provided a cover for his overseas sanctions. But Nick feels something's missing. An employer Nick sometimes takes sanctions from, when they coincide with the wishes of his government sponsors, orders the death of a woman in the witness protection program. Nick sees something in the woman's picture reminding him of someone he knew long ago. After a brief journey up to the restaurant in Northern California where his potential target, Rachel Hunter, works as a waitress, Nick makes a decision to alter his lifestyle. Hayden Tanus, the CEO of Tanus Import/Export looks out the window of his plush office on the Upper East Side of Manhattan wondering briefly if Rachel Hunter was finally dead. The fifty caliber bullet made a small hole in his window and a large one as it exited his head.
In the following days, playing the role of famous author doing research for his new novel, Nick enters Rachel's life. He inadvertently triggers an unforeseen chain of events launching him in a cross country flight with Rachel, her daughter Jean, and Deke the dog. Rachel has secrets. The people still wanting her dead are about to find out a cold blooded killer now stands in their way and body counts mean absolutely nothing to him.

I just can't get enough of Deleos books and Mike's narration. I listen to them over again every other month and when in a bad mood. They can lift my spirits within the first few sentences. Great job!

What did you love best about Cold Blooded?

I actually read the book as well. I love this story. It's full of action, suspense and humor.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Absolutely. Plot is great and with Nick trying to determine who could be trusted and couldn't be while trying to protect Rachel and her daughter even from the WitSec agents, then the mob, just amazing action and a lot of kills. But, Nick is funny in that he uses a lot of garbage bags, duck tape and bleach.

Have you listened to any of Mike Dennis’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

First time hearing this guy and he done a great job I think. I'd buy another book with him narrating if I liked the book first.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Cold Blooded Killer

Any additional comments?

Highly recommended

Lots of action.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I already have. I liked the plot of an assassin having a cover of a writer of assassin novels. Plenty of action, with a lot of humour. Blood, sex and violence. What more could you wish for.

What was one of the most memorable moments of Cold Blooded?

I thought the funniest was the dog taking the cushions from the sofa.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes. I was really engrossed.

Any additional comments?

I will listen to others in the Nick McCarty series

Wow! Captivating and loaded with action

If you could sum up Cold Blooded in three words, what would they be?

Action action and more action. The character of Nick is amazing. The author added some great humor to the story as well. Very enjoyable and highly recommended

What does Mike Dennis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

He alters his voice to the scene and creates a good visual of what's happening

Did you have an emotional reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Laugh several times and on the edge of my seat other times
