Great story. So-so narration.
This is another excellent installation of the Hap and Leonard series. Unfortunately, the audio version is somewhat spoiled by Mr. Gigante's use of a stereotypical "dumb Southerner" accent, even for the obviously intelligent and forward-thinking main characters. This is a shame, since the clever dialogue between Hap and Leonard is part of what makes the book so enjoyable. I read the first two books in this series and enjoyed that experience much more - the story is smart and funny and full of suspense. My only other complaint is the constant and gratuitous use of the n-word. I am from and of the South and grew up in a time when that word was commonly used, so I'm not shocked, but it's seems the author is like a dog with a nasty little bone when it comes to that word.
