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.

Solid action thriller
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.
The cab driver. He called his cab service Johnny Cab. You know. From Total Recall.
His gravely and rugged voice was a perfect match for the main character. No way my internal voice could be that.
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.
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
I was immediately drawn into the story by Brian's engaging timbre. The story was interesting and full of action and suspense but it's his narration that made this story STELLAR. Definitely looking forward to hearing more from this narrator. Bravo!
