Wild Cards now in development for TV!
Dead Man's Hand combines the writing talents of George R. R. Martin and John Jos. Miller.
Chrysalis, the glass-skinned queen of the Joker underworld, has been found brutally murdered in her popular restaurant, the Crystal Palace. Now two men are out to find her killer: Jay Ackroyd, the Ace private investigator who discovered her ruined body, and the vigilante archer known as the Yeoman, who has been framed for the crime.
Their quest leads them on a nightmare odyssey of madness, violence, passion, and political intrigue that will forever alter the fates of Aces and Jokers everywhere.
Experience all the exciting action of this collaborative novel by George R. R. Martin and John Jos. Miller. Dead Man's Hand is both a gripping mystery and a chilling story of suspense, set in the unforgettable world of the Wild Cards.
Rights to develop Wild Cards for TV have been acquired by Universal Cable Productions, the team that brought you The Magicians and Mr. Robot, with the coeditor of Wild Cards, Melinda Snodgrass, as executive producer.

Excellent story but the narration was spotty

It think the story here is one of my favorite Wild Cards stories. The previous book is a political thriller. This one is a noir-ish murder mystery. Poppin Jay is one of my favorite characters in the series and this story gives a good example why. It really shows the range of stories they can do in this world.

So....the narration. Jay Acovone is fine and a good voice choice for Poppin Jay parts. He has enough ranges to make the other characters sound believable and alive. Adrian Paul, sadly is not working here. As the voice of Yeoman he is fine, but his range is lacking. The bits where he is giving voice to female characters is just bad. I hate saying that because I liked him in other things, and his voice for Yeoman, but his voice work on the other characters was so bad it was distracting.

Great stories, dodgy accents😂

Loved all the Wild card stories published by audible so far. A genius idea by the authors. Can’t wait for the next instalment. Will miss all the dodgy attempts at Hiram Worchesters Scots accent 😂.
