Where does The Safe Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
it was a pleasant surprise to hear Michael Connelly, not known for this kind of thing, to spin a pretty good yarn that resonated with me. This feels like an homage of sorts, to some pulp collections I grew up on as a kid, but maybe with a little more heart. Would be pretty devastating around a campfire.
What was one of the most memorable moments of The Safe Man?
no spoilers - not exactly a moment, but more the unfolding, for the main character, and for the reader, of what the safe is all about, was comfortably thrilling. Yeah, I mean comfortably - I love curling up around a decent ghost story. The title itself has multiple meanings.
Have you listened to any of David W. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
no - good solid work, no issues. voices the annoying client almost too well - it was just slightly overdone enough to make the client more of a caricature than a character. toned back just a hair would have made the story that much stronger. the rest was really fine.
If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?
I give up. for an audible credit or two, I'll work harder and come up with a good tag line.
Any additional comments?
very well done short story worthy of sitting in a steven king collection. For such a quickly drawn set of characters, in broad brush strokes, connelly has done a good job of capturing a certain kind of fear - born out of love - that I can't talk about without spoilers galore. recommended - not for a credit - it's too short - but priced just right for members.

The Safe Man is a quick book but is jam-packed with good writing, an excellent narration, and the conclusion - well, it knocked my socks off. Truly, one of the best books on Audible.com and I wish ten stars were available because I would cheat and and add one extra, for a total of 11.
