this is the second part of dead eye: pennies for the ferryman. it literally carries on where the other left off which means if you have listened to pennies of the ferryman some time ago you need to re-listen to that one first (which I did)..
although Michael is learning how to deal with stronger foes the book seemed to be too long for the plot to keep you gripped and rooting for the hero.
Jeffrey kafer performed both books well.
I really have fun with this series. I listen to a lot of books and always have that moment when I start up a book in a series where I wonder if I'll know what's happening, but he does a concise recap without boring you or overloading you. Mike is doing well, growing, learning, hismcharacter is progressing nicely. Making good choices, with a few bad ones here and there, but he's human. So it stays entertaining and fun.
But, there is this one thing that needs to be discussed. He (author) employs famous dead people throughout both books. The first one was Edgear Alan Poe and a few war generals, I won't spoil whose in this one, but there's some good ones. I have a love/hate relationship with famous dead people having active roles. He does seem to pull it off though. I initially cringed, but they all worked well. At least it wasn't jack the ripper, I hate when when he shows up. I look forward to another book!

Second book is as good as the first,
and from this moment on
Jim Bernheimer is in my top 10 Favorite Authors
and Jeffrey Kafer performed an outstanding narration.
I was upset to find out that there is no 3rd book as of yet,
but according to the author he has plans
for at least 1 probably 2-3 more books in a dead eye series.
Let's hope they will be available soon.
