Publisher's Summary

"We're getting the band back together."
Those six words send a chill down Miki St. John's spine, especially when they're spoken with a nearly religious fervor by his brother-in-all-but-blood, Damien Mitchell. However, those words were nothing compared to what Damien says next.
"And we're going on tour."
When Crossroads Gin hits the road, Damien hopes it will draw them closer together. There's something magical about being on tour, especially when traveling in a van with no roadies, managers, or lovers to act as a buffer. The band is already close, but Damien knows they can be more brothers of sorts, bound not only by familial ties but by their intense love for music.
As they travel from gig to gig, the band is haunted by past mistakes and personal demons, but they forge on. For Miki, Damie, Forest, and Rafe, the stage is where they all truly come alive, and the music they play is as important to them as the air they breathe.
But those demons and troubles won't leave them alone, and with every mile under their belts, the band faces its greatest challenge overcoming their deepest flaws and not killing one another along the way.

Good addition to the series

I enjoyed that this book was about the band. Each of them had a POV moment, but there was no over all plot as such. It kind of sounded like a series of short stories rather than a flowing narrative. The audio book itself was around 3 hours shorter than the rest of the Sinner's series, and I felt that just as we were getting going, it ended abruptly, nonsensically and we had an epilogue with a cliffhanger. I'm happy this is not the last book, but damn... Rhys Ford is such a tease.

I still have issues with the narrator. His voices are wonderful, as is his pacing, but he doesn't do the research when there are words he doesn't know how to pronounce. The word "Buoy" which we all know is BOY, was read as 'Boo-hee'. Not to mention my BIGGEST BUGBEAR of this series, the character Sionn is Gaelic for Shaun, but the narrator pronounces his name as SHOON. I cringe every time i hear him say that.

There were also long pauses between chapters and a change in the recording levels in the middle of this audio book. I know the narrator uses a home studio, but these little niggly things are newbie errors and Tristan James has been doing this for a while. The errors really affect the overall quality of the recording and in turn, the listeners enjoyment of the book. With this being the most recent recording, he should be getting better rather than worse!

Brilliantly written and performed

I loved this the band performing gigs. The Morgans left at home.coming to the rescue when needed. Poor Miki I just want to wrap him up in Bubblewrap to keep him safe. Can't wait to see how Brigit handles Connor and Forest
