When Nathan, a field agent for the FBI, gets a panicked phone call from his sister-in-law telling him that a gunman was killing guests at the wedding she and her husband were attending, he grabs his own gun and rushes to the scene. Unable to get a clear line on the killer, he is himself shot and watches his brother die. Months later, after a long and painful recovery, he's back at work - and more apparently senseless shootings are terrifying the city. Why are they taking p!ace? Are they connected somehow? If so, who or what is orchestrating them?
Eric Michael Summerer narrates this intriguing thriller with feeling. His pacing is excellent and the range of voices used to differentiate speakers is consistent and clear. Pleasant to hear, he really compliments the text and helps bring the story alive.
And it is a good story, too, not only as an action thriller but also in conveying the devastation caused by such attacks to the survivors and loved ones of the victims. It also highlights both the pros and cons of carrying guns. An interesting addition at the end of the book tells the story of how it all began from the perpetrators perspective: a clever device, and rather sad.
I was gifted this book by the rights holder, via Audiobook Boom. Thank you. It was one which I enjoyed and can recommend to other readers who enjoy well written action and intrigue, with strong characterisation and just a touch of political concern. I will definitely be looking out for further books by Scott King.
"I Was Hooked On Ameriguns From The Opening!"
Kept me guessing!
Nathanial - the author created a believable, likeable character that the listener could relate to.
Eric Michael Summerer really brought the story to life! He deftly managed the entire cast of characters - I forgot I was listening to a narrator and thought I was listening to a thriller of a television show in the background!
I loved the scenes with Nathaniel and his dog. The love and care he felt for his pet told me more about his character than anything else in the book!
I did not realize that the Audible version of Ameriguns included a prequel until it started playing and hearing the story "flip" to include the mastermind's perspective was a stroke of genius!
I thoroughly enjoyed this book and hope that this writer/narrator duo return for more Audible thrillers in the future!
"Good story line"
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher. This is definitely not my typical type of read, but it was pretty good. I'm glad I gave it a chance. It maintained my interest throughout the whole thing and I was always trying to figure out what was going to happen next and who was behind it. There some parts of the story that were a little slow for me, but overall I was pleased with the book. Narrator did a great job.Very easy to listen to. Smooth and steady voice.
Very enjoyable book. Interesting, engaging and entertaining story. Pulls you in from the beginning and keeps you hooked until the end. The story is full of twists and turns, suspense, mystery, action and betrayal. There is a lot packed into the story for it being a shorter book. Took me quite a while to figure out this mystery.
Why is someone trying to frame Nathaniel? What has he done to cause someone to attack hi this way? How is he going to prove his innocence? Who can he depend on to help him? These are just some of the questions Nathaniel faces as he tries to stay one step ahead of an unknown enemy.
Eric Michael Summerer did a really good job with the narration. Nice voice. Clearly spoken. Smooth even pace with the narration. Good character voices. He was able to bring the characters to life through his narration.

"Totally Thrilling with such surprises"
I have to say this kept me on my toes I was as confused as Nathaniel to why he was singled out as well as to how this all would come together. The author sure doesn’t give many clues but keeps your attention. The person who is the leader is surprising at one point I thought maybe and decided no that just doesn’t seem right. The author hooks you from the start with action, killing, loss, pain as one man shoots up a wedding killing many and leaving Nathaniel hurt in more ways than one. As Nathaniel gets back on his feet there is a major shooting he is called in on leaving a few dead including the shooter. The book is based around the shooters, a gun control bill and how it affects Nathaniel. All fingers and evidence are pointing to him as they bring him in holding him trying to get him to confess he is at a loss for words. The reader is left guessing and torn whether to believe he is innocent or guilty. You mind will be blown away as to who is in control and the why of it.
Mr. Summerer does a wonderful job of narration he really brings this audio to life with his many different character voices as well as the wonderful tones he uses to really pull you in making you a part of this listen. I had no trouble picturing the scenes as they unfold leaving me speechless at times. You have no trouble knowing who is talking and what they are feeling as the narrator gives you an action pack thrilling listen. There were no background noises or any places where the audio is higher or lower than the beginning of the last charter. If any breaks were taken you cannot tell. His female voices were just as wonderful as his males. His tones and emotions where right on the money leaving you with a wonderful clear audio that leaves you with your mouth hung open at times. The audio was clean, clear and crisp with true emotion being giving to each character. He really brought this audio to life for me making me feel a part of the book. I look forward to listening to more from this narrator.
My heart really went out to Nathaniel, his brother and sister-in-law from the first few pages. The author gives you such pain that you have to close your eyes for a few minutes and let it sink in. As the book takes off on the next chapter Nathaniel and his family still pull on your heart. More shooting and more killings that have no meaning unless it has to do with the bill a few want to get past. Fingers are pointing all over the place but they always come back to Nathaniel. When one thing happens there is little doubt to those in charge that Nathaniel is the one behind it. They leave him no choice but to make a run for it. As he tries to work out who is behind it all trying to clear his name he gets in one mess after another. At times it is touch or go whether he will make it out alive.
The author give you a wonderful plot that as it plays out pulling you in with some wonderful scenes and events that is very vivid with detail that will make you hold your breath. Nothing really makes a lot of sense to the why until the end which will blow you way. I really never saw that coming and had mixed feelings at the outcome. It really all made sense at this point but leaves you feeling a little sad. The ending was great and I totally enjoyed the story which was very entertaining. I did not care for the last chapter or so that went into detail about the leader. I felt that was not needed and for me took away from the story and the impact of the ending. If not for that I would have given this 5 stars. What I did like was the action, thrills, and even a few chills that kept the book moving at a fast pace for me. I found myself very invested and guessing to the outcome. The author does a wonderful job giving you the clues but keeping just enough held back to hold your interest. I thought it was really well written with a wonderful plot that plays out keeping you hooked until the end. I haven’t read anything by this author before and look very much into to reading/listening to more of his work.
~ another book I just couldn't put down till my eyes blurred and the clock was saying 3am time to sleep ~ kept me right on the edge till the last page ~ great job and love the storyline ~ will I tell much about the book absolutely not and ruin it for you just know you must get this one .
I received a free copy of this book and voluntarily decided to review."
I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher from Audio Boom.
The narrator caught my attention from beginning to end, and the story was interesting. It was narrative was detailed, and I felt as though I was listening in to an action movie. It was fast paced, covered all the whys and whats and how, so I liked it a lot.
I would buy the next book by Scott King.
"Disappointed, less like a novel and more like political propaganda"
**I was given a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review **
I was excited to listen to this book as I love action/suspense/mystery, However I felt like the description/summary of it was totally misleading. It was nothing like what you'd expect from the description. Not only that, but it was slow, predictable, and boring. I feel like the author is trying to push their political views on me through this book and I didn't like that. I hate leaving bad reviews, but I just couldn't give this one more than 1 star. I will not be recommending.
