Publisher's Summary

His name is Roarke. His history is a swath of blood and violence. Released from prison after another man died under his fists, he's found some semblance of peace as a private investigator. Sometimes he's hired to solve a problem. Sometimes he's hired to do something mean. He prefers the one, but he isn't above the other. When he's hired to locate a gorgeous banking executive's missing niece, Roarke suspects the case might be just another ugly custody fight between the girl's parents. A single gunshot aimed his way proves him wrong and convinces him to give the missing girl his undivided attention. Soon, Roarke finds himself drawn away from his Detroit lair and into the northern wilderness where an armed militia calling themselves the Sovereign North are holding the girl. Lead by a silver-tongued preacher and a remorseless killer called The Last Watchman, the Sovereign North are waiting for him. They think they can bargain with him. They think he can be reasoned with. They're wrong.

A great new hard boiled detective series

If you could sum up The Last Watchman Still Rides in three words, what would they be?

Very gritty, excellent character development. Superb narration. I recently made a 10 hour drive and this audiobook was the perfect accompaniment.

Solid action thriller

If you could sum up The Last Watchman Still Rides in three words, what would they be?

See headline.

The story is solid and has good action. It follows the popular ex soldier turned detective for hire who is a one man A team. Nothing new here but still a good story.

Who was your favorite character and why?

The cab driver. He called his cab service Johnny Cab. You know. From Total Recall.

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

His gravely and rugged voice was a perfect match for the main character. No way my internal voice could be that.

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

No extreme reaction. I did find that if I skipped a day, listened over the holidays, that it took a bit to get back into. I was all excited at first and then would lose interest. This wasn't the fault of the author or narrator; but, for some reason, despite thoroughly enjoying the book, I often had to force myself to turn it on and not listen to something else. Hopefully that is just me.

Any additional comments?

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
