Someone said, “A good story consists of just one damn thing after another.” Gil Miller seems to have taken that to heart. I don’t know that you can call an audiobook a “page turner,” but I had a hard time forcing myself to stop occasionally to attend to the necessities of daily living. While there is plenty of action in this Southern crime drama, there’s a lot more to it than your standard shoot-em-up. At that, the action is almost all original and unexpected, and is vivid enough to satisfy the most demanding fan. That said, "character" is central, the narrative laced with moments of emotional depth, insight, and humor—the thinking person’s Southern crime drama. I laughed out loud several times, more often, I think, because of the perfect pitch Tommy G. Kendrick hit, his voice a dead-on match with the dark, tongue-in-cheek humor sprinkled throughout. Kendrick’s narrative voice makes each character so vividly clear, I felt like I knew them. The perfect marriage of story and narration comes together in this audio of the novel, "Startup." This would make a great movie.
