Publisher's Summary

The last thing Los Angeles needed was a high-tech, ex-assassin from another world setting up shop as a private detective. They got one anyway, in the form of Justin Case, a smart-ass killing machine looking for a little redemption. When one of Case's closest friends turns up dead, the alien detective and his predatory partner Magdelain track down an Italian mobster secretly hammering L.A. with a new designer drug. Case must call in favors from a bare-knuckles brawler tied to the Russian mob and a hot-bodied sniper who makes a mean cappuccino. Before the end, he'll even put the love of his life in harm's way and risk everything by revealing his greatest secret.

Justin Case is awesome

I'm not great at reviews but I loved this book and am excited for the rest of the trilogy. The pacing was great, the jokes were well timed and the character development felt good.

The narrator did a great job, if you like the voice of David Hayter (Metal Gear Solid games), then you will enjoy Bryan Patrick Jones.

I highly recommend this book if you like light-hearted fun and some gratuitous violence.

Very fun Sci-fi noir novel.

I was given a free copy of this book in return for an honest review. I have to say that by the time I was half way through this book I was already excited about getting to write this review.

Chemical Burn is an incredibly fun Sci-fi noir story set in a world where an alien works as a private eye taking on gangsters and mobsters. Justin Case is a very likeable protagonist. Some one has killed Justin's best friend and in his hunt to find the killer he discovers that the Russians and Italians are working together on something that will put Justin and all his closest friends in danger. He uses a combination of natural born skill and creative alien technology to systematically and violently take apart the two Mob organizations.

The narration for the book was great. The reader did a phenomenal job of pulling me into the story and keeping me there. His voice work for the different characters was consistent and each character was easily identifiable. The pacing was just right and the reader did a good job with setting the tone of each scene. I look forward to more work from this author and the narrator.
