Performer Jeff Hoyt is more than up to the task in embodying the jaded, foul-mouthed protagonist, and is particularly adept at capturing the witty, rapid-fire banter between Eye and his ex-friend’s brother Hector in this riveting listen.
Picking up a small, pink shoe from the grass forever changed young Jackson Lee’s life. Not only did its presence mean that his sister Tessa was dead - murdered and stuffed in the deep, black water of a narrow well - but the shoe itself told him so. Tessa’s death triggers an even more horrific family massacre that, combined with this new talent he neither wants nor can handle, throws Jack’s life into a tailspin. The years quickly take him from state homes to the streets to grifting in a seedy carnival, until he finally becomes the cynical All Seeing Eye, psychic-for-hire. At last, Jackson has left his troubled past behind and found a semblance of peace.
That is, until the government blackmails him. After Jackson is forced to help the military contain the aftermath of a bizarre experiment gone violently wrong, everything he knows about himself will change just as suddenly as it did with his little sister’s shoe.
And while change is constant...it’s never for the better.

Finally on Audible -- GREAT read
Available since July in paperback, but I waited until this was available in Audible and I am glad I did. Hoyt seems an odd choice for the younger Jackson Lee, but it works as flashback once you get used to his style. And he does well with the range of voices, male and female.
The book hooks you from the start -- you feel for the anti-social, sarcastic psychic, Jackson Lee. The book could have been longer (ended too soon for me), but the ending leaves me believing this is only the beginning and we will see more of Jackson Lee, which is a good thing.
And now if all of the Cal Leandros series were available on Audible, I would be a very happy reader. Rob Thurman has a signature style of razor sharp sarcasm that plays well in audible format.

I drive around checking sites for my company so I listen to audiobooks all the time and this is by far my favorite I've listened to. I've listened to it 3 times now, it's the perfect reader for the story and the story is good.
I've turned a few of my friend on to this story and they loves it also.
it's like the writer wrote it for this narrator. It's perfect

When his sister is found dead, Jack suddenly receives the power of a psychic. Years of isolation are shattered when he is drafted by the government to save a respected scientist.
The story got a bit daft from here, in that the scientist has discovered a way to travel through the ether, and can only be brought back from sites where horrendous murders have occurred! Jack's psychic powers are sought to deliver these sites and save the day.
