A Flash of Red
This book was a great surprise read. Reminds me of the reacher series in the way it flows. I look foward to more by this author.

right wing conspiracy
This book could be improved with a different reader . . . but not by much. The reader seems to delight in emphasizing the smugness of the narrator, who's already too smug for words. I won't be listening to the rest of this: it's an assault on my patience to listen to such nonsense. The reader is unfamiliar with words like 'deprecating,' which he pronounces 'depreciating'; the author is unfamiliar with the concept, as there's nothing deprecating about the protagonist at all.
As far as 'right-wing' goes, the protag is a weird mix of reactionary family-values stalwart who nonetheless makes fun of Gingrich and homophobes. None of it is really believable, though, doesn't comprise a real character: he's more a mix of role-plays the author envisioned while scheming up assorted triggers for the malleable man to respond to in smug ways.
Imagine being trapped in a car with an Amway salesman. His car, where you're trapped by circumstances . . . and he's going to make you an Amway salesman by the end of the ride or kill you trying.
