Publisher's Summary

New York Times best-selling author Carl Hiaasen teamed up with journalist Bill Montalbano for this gripping thriller. Powder Burn stars Chris Meadows, a successful Miami architect who's leaving a meeting with an ex-girlfriend when he sees a car strike his ex, killing her. But the nightmare is only just beginning. As a witness to the crime, Chris knows the car's passengers - thugs linked to Miami's deadliest drug lords - are sure to come after him next. But what can he do if the police refuse to give him protection?

I Love Carl Hiaasen, but man this was the hard

What disappointed you about Powder Burn?

I cant rate this book because I was to bored to get past the first 3 hours. If you love Carl Hiaasen stay away from this book. Its starts slow and I think that's the way it will continue. This book was a slow starter like the Lords of Discipline

Would you ever listen to anything by Carl Hiaasen and Bill Montalbano again?

Not both this book was too boring to complete. I have listened to all of Carl Hiassen books longer than 8 hours and I loved them all, this one was just not for me.

Would you be willing to try another one of Robert Ramirez’s performances?

I didn't finish the book so I don't feel like I should rate his performance

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Powder Burn?

I was to bored to finish the first half let alone the complete boo.

Any additional comments?

Can I have a refund?

Would you consider the audio edition of Powder Burn to be better than the print version?

not sure, since I did not read the print version, but the audio was great

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

Yes, fast paced, no long rambling speeches

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


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

tough question, not really sure

All potential lost to a bad reader

The plot might have held promise. Certainly with Hiaasen as one of the authors, I had hopes. But the reader ruined it. I could not get past chapter 3. Same harsh tone no matter what the scene, didn't seem to be taking in what he was reading so emphasis often misplaced. What a pity
