Publisher's Summary

What would you do if your child went missing?

Meet retired cop Sam Prichard.

Sam Prichard was a cop, and a good one, until bullets took out the joint of his right hip. Now he's trying to learn to live without being a cop, getting to know his neighbors, learning to walk again and even ride a motorcycle. Life is bearable, barely, but then he gets asked to find a missing child, and the lure of getting back into some kind of police work is too much for him to resist. When he teams up with computer whiz Indiana Perkins, he suddenly becomes one of the best investigators he's ever even known.

Now he's found the missing child, but it's thrown him right into the middle of something that may be a drug war - or could be a chance to stop the next 9/11! There's no way out for Sam, so he's in for the ride of his life, but when the girl he's becoming fond of is suddenly drawn into the line of fire with her own little daughter, Sam is ready to forget all the rules and do whatever is necessary to win the day.

    ...is not the only thing with many twists and turns in this tale. Sometimes being on the right side can be very confusing. 🚨🚔🚕🚘

    "Cliché isn't always bad."

    The voice is very calm at all times, which lends itself to the suave spy genre, but detracts from any feeling of urgency or action.
    God, this book is cliché. Luckily, there was enough intrigue to keep you guessing about who the bad guy was.
    Recommended to fans of books with cool, damaged cops as the protagonist.

    All of it, if this written by an adult maybe he needs to read some Lee Child or Connelly this is dire solve a case with 3 phone calls and a google search.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Archer again?

    no


    Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Mikael Naramore?

    no one could make this work


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Grave Man?

    it is all bad


    Any additional comments?

    "Light and fun mystery!"

    The Sam Prichard series has real promise. The background is that cop Sam Prichard is shot in the hip and leg and is forced into retirement. He takes on a case for a neighbor who is the grandmother of a young girl who is missing. He is looking for computer help and finds it from a young lady, Indiana Perkins, who has a degree from MIT and 4 year old daughter. Sam gets a private detective license and starts the hunt. This book has lots of twists and turns. It is a thoroughly delightful listen. I'll definitely listen to the next book in the series.

    "Preposterous"

    So, if I got this right - the cute, petite MIT educated genius hacker goes home with the ex cop and proceeds to become his live-in '50's style cook/housekeeper and incidental Internet assistant; the 12-year old kidnap victim is returned by the terrorist drug lord not only unharmed but entertained and sated with ice cream; the hero gets the motorcycle and hot car - I'd have to have paid attention to get the rest of the boy entertainment value. Not being a boy, and never liking fairy tales, I was SO not impressed. This one's going on the "lame list."

    Unbelievable fantasy fiction. Maybe a good read for the 10 year old. Kept hoping it would get better, but no.

    "Better than expected, for a free book, with audio"
    Where does The Grave Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Top 10


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

    Yes, it was an edge of your seat mystery, without the profanity that most of today's writers tend to use!


    Which character – as performed by Mikael Naramore – was your favorite?

    Sam, his sense of right and wrong, and his compassion.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When he noticed a homeless girl and her daughter.


    Any additional comments?

    I usually pick longer books, but if you like a good book that you can finish in one sitting, I would venture to guarantee that you won't be sorry! Good action and mystery too!
