Snuggle in front of the fire, but not too close…

There were many memorable moments it sucks to only pick one. I listened to the first chapter free and had to buy the book, I needed to know what would happen next

Would you consider the audio edition of Arsonist to be better than the print version?
I've never read the print version so I can't say. Unless the narration's terrible, I'll always prefer audio over print.
Have you listened to any of R. C. Bray’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
I think I have listened to R.C. Bray before and if I remember correctly he did a really good narrating the previous books I've heard and he did another good job with this book too. I especially liked the voice he gave the antagonist.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Ya, I guess there was but I'm not going to say what it was. Again, I don't like answering this part of the review because it gives part of the story away. Maybe you guys don't mind but it kinda bothers me to find out ahead of time important parts of the book before I've had a chance to hear it first. I don't know, maybe it's just me.
Any additional comments?
This is a brutal, hardcore and very well written suspense thriller that is very hard to put down. This book has one of the most sinister, f**ked up antagonists I've listen to in a long time. I liked this book a lot, it's too bad it wasn't longer. I've never heard of the Writer before(Victor Methos) but after hearing this book I'll be keeping tabs on his new book releases.

First thoughts about the cover of Arsonist? A naked bald person curled up in a fetal huddle? Odd, very odd. Is this a sign of someone needing help? A mental disorder? Someone being tortured? The red fire lettering of the title give the cover an even more ominous feel.
The main character is Jon Stanton. He is a police detective with the San Diego Police Department. He is kind, caring, and determined to stop the arsonist from hurting anymore people. He has to struggle to deal with a lousy partner, police politics, and the arsonist focusing his attention onto him when he gets in the way.
The Narrator is R.C. Bray. He has a very calming voice. I found it to be very soothing with a hint of a deeper rumble in some of the characters’ voices. The Author is Victor Methos. This story is Book Four of the Jon Stanton series. It is six hours and thirty minutes long.
Warning – There are some graphic scenes in this book. I would not recommend this book for a young or teen audience. The usual suspects of blood and sex. It had several good detailed scenes of fires and fire aftermaths. This book left me thinking about the addictions people have and hide from others. About children being warped and broken by their parents and turning into warped broken adults. And about how people have choices to either become the evil they have been shown or face it and become better persons for having known that darkness.
