First Lieutenant Robert Davidson. The son of an American military legend and a war hero who died in combat during the Afghanistan conflict.
Or did he?
The answer could bring down a secret military empire - as well as a guy named Max Bowman.
Max is a rude, crude and rapidly aging ex-CIA desk jockey who gets the job of tracking down the truth about Davidson - but his chances of actually discovering it are about half of that of finding a horse wearing a kimono. What Max doesn't know is that nobody wants the facts - and nobody expects Max to find them.
But Max has to pay the rent. So he takes on the job, which takes him on a road trip into the heart of America's darkness as well as his own, where he has to deal with exploding homes, brutal murders, a sexy heiress, a misguided teenager and Max's girlfriend back home, who's cursing him out on a regular basis.
And, oh yeah, a para-military organization that's just waiting for the right moment to kill him.
It all happens in Dark Sky, a sardonic and suspenseful mystery-thriller in which an underwhelming hero must confront an overwhelming conspiracy - not to mention himself.
This is the first book in the Max Bowman series.

What a wild and crazy ride!!!
There is absolutely nothing not to like about this listen. Everything is "on point." The writing was excellent. The hero was seriously flawed and therefore extremely likeable. The side characters carried their weight. The narration was bone-chillingly good with just the right amount of smirk. And the ending was a great big WTF! Such a wild and crazy ride. I loved the listen and can't wait for the second book in the series!
