    Story
    "Fast paced short"

    This is a gritty short about an assassin who gets a bit more than he bargained for. Enjoyed it. Not for the squeamish. The narrator was great too.

    "Epic read from start to finish"
    What did you love best about Cafe Assassin?

    I know most complaints come from short stories being too short, but I enjoyed the length of Grunn's work. It's not too short to feel dry and not too long to drag on about random points. You're given what you need to base yourself into the assassin's world, and you just gotta hold on tight from there.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Absolutely. Assassins can be quite cliche and predictable, but Grunn manages a different twist on a very popular, mysterious concept. Grunn gives his assassin human traits, rather than a born-to-kill, lifeless persona. James's performance enhances this internal struggle quite well.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The dinner scene. Smells fantastic.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    He has a reputation to protect, and fortunately for me, he's fictional so I never have to worry about crossing paths.


    Any additional comments?

    Loved it! Can't say I wish it was longer, but I'd love to dive into another short story featuring the same character. There's definitely room for development if Grunn decides to take that path, but it definitely has the power to stand alone as a solid read.

    Story
    "Well told, brutal story."

    I found Aaron's last audiobook "Terror in New York" to be quite enjoyable. This was a big jump up as far as I am concerned. The way you can feel the tension and trauma is unlike other recent noirs i have picked up. There is little fluff along the way, everything has a pay off.
    There were a few minor (very minor quirks i had with the reading). For instance the way the narrator pronounced "Houston" took me away for a second. In manhattan it's pronounced more like How-ston.

    Well done. I'll probably pick up another one in the near future.
