Narrator and story click
I've listened to the first 3 books in this series and I approve the narrator switch from Stefan Rudnicki to Richard Ferrone. I thought the voice sounded familiar, but it wasn't until the narrator said the word "Bernie" that I remembered where I'd heard the voice before (Lawrence Block's Bernie Rhodenbarr series). I like Mr. Ferrone's narration because there's just the little touch of humor and irony to go with the protagonist's point of view.
The setting of the novel and the character's background are also interesting (I also USED to be an engineer). I do find the violence of the main character a bit disturbing but the plots are generally satisfyingly complex and resolve well.

I enjoyed the previous 2 books, but I quit this one about a quarter way through. Sam was just too obnoxious for my tastes. The hero can have flaws, but I really want to like him/her at least some.
