Sticks and stones may break my bones, but words can never hurt me....

Joe and Edison take on a Serial Killer! Turf War!

What made the experience of listening to The Chemistry of Death the most enjoyable?

Joe Tesla, Edison, Vivian Torres. The tunnels beneath Manhatten and the almost self sufficient "mansion" in which Joe lives and works

Who was your favorite character and why?

Joe as Male Lead. Vivian Torres as strong Female. And Edison as a kind of Robin, Mr. Spock and Lassie rolled into one great sidekick. Joe and the other characters are almost (not quite) supporting actors!

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeffrey is an excellent choice to bring these stories (the Joe Tesla Series) to life on the Audible Editions. Again, clear, easily understood, easy on my old tired ears!

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

Joe and Edison pitted against the serial killer who also claims the subterranean reaches that Tesla clings to for his sanity. I felt the anxiety that the main character felt, the fear and confusion of the murdered victims. The sinister aspects of the Killer AKA Ziggy. Who is this killer? And what is his connection with Joe Tesla?

Any additional comments?

Each book in this series by Rebecca Cantrell keeps getting better and better. I understand a Book Four will be out soon. Can't wait!<br/><br/>This audiobook was provided by the author at no cost in exchange for an unbiased review Thanks so much, Rebecca!

My First Tesla Book but Not My Last!

Would you consider the audio edition of The Chemistry of Death to be better than the print version?

I have only heard the audio version but thought it was well done. I have not read the print version.

Who was your favorite character and why?

I liked Joe Tesla even with his "flaws" it makes him a some what vulnerable hero which is a nice change from the indestructible super hero's that grace many books now a days.

What does Jeffrey Kafer bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I have listened to quite a few books with Jeffrey Kafer as of late and never get tired of hearing his voice. He does characters quite well and is never garbled or hard to understand.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The ending, I don't know if there were hints in the other Tesla books but I really didn't figure out who the bad guy was tell almost the very end. I will go back and listen to the first two Tesla books because I found this one so enjoyable.
