A Good Listen
This is my first experience of Mark Gimenez and it was positive. I thought the book was well written, you were never quite certain how the plot would turn. It did get slightly long winded in the middle regarding the political differences betwen America and Mexico, this didn't last long however and overall, I really enjoyed the book.
Not to give anything away - for me, towards the end of the book when Bodi and Lindsey are in El Diablo's office, it was slightly far fetched that they got out of there but hey, never let reality get in the way of a good storey eh!
Now here is a man who has perfected his craft. I have bought a number of books Jeff Harding has narrated, his ability to use his voice to bring the characters to life is excellent.
Even the devil can't take a Texan down!
I look forward to reading more from Mr Gimenez!
Good story, well read, helps my commute.
