Wrong Town fuses the worlds of special operations, counterintelligence, police work, and small-town drama into a gripping adventure full of characters with monumental responsibilities and real-life troubles.
Follow 39-year-old veteran Mark Landry as he returns home, having retired from an American government black ops unit. In a small town north of Boston with a rich history, Landry finds that the only girl he has ever loved, Luci Alvarez, is now an extraordinary policewoman at the precarious center of a community's struggles with change, amid a powder keg of fear and paranoia not seen since colonial times. Landry seeks to convince Officer Alvarez that he is home for good as he learns the astonishing answer to a lifelong mystery. Landry is eager to begin his new life, but events threaten to expose disturbing details of his past that would send shock waves through the country and sabotage the only relationship he cares about.
As terrorist attacks and targeted mass shootings increasingly litter American soil, two new realities come into focus: The war on terrorism's geographic center of gravity is shifting, and Landry's new life is beginning to look a lot like the career he left behind.

I might, there is plenty of room for improvement.
There were so many ways this story could be made more enjoyable. Gaps in the story are explained in a paragraph rather than filling in the detail. Much like when a poor mystery writer introduces the villain in the last chapter this book has lost and undeveloped characters. Also the book doesn't really know where it is going and what it wants to be. Much of the book seems to be a fictional version of Fox News soundbites, which might make an interesting read if it was better developed. This was an outline of what could easily have been 2 or 3 good books if fleshed out and the gaps were filled in.
Great story teller. Looking for more from this author! Interesting narrator, haven't heard a read from narrator with older voice than the characters.
Often took the long way home just to keep listening! Very good story line and very relevant
During the entire read I couldn't wait to see how all the stories came together. I'm ready for the next one!
"Not good Narrator"
This is a good/series book, but the narrator didn't do any justice to the story. I feel that the narrator didn't put too much effort to give any difference voices to the other characters in the book, there were parts the he start to sound like one the character but looses it distinct voice in the middle of the sentence and sound like the any other character, it was awful! I hope audible will do some recording of it if with different narrator if its going to be a series book.
It seems to me that this is a self published book, a good book and I hope to look forward to the series, but I hope the author has a say to choose a much better narrator, the one that will give a "voice" to Mark Landry character. I have been an audio book fanatics, and a big followers of series books for a long time. This is the second time I listened to a good book with not so great narrator, and as always, it just kill the story. I hope you get to choose a much better one. Goodluck!
"Well written and well told!"
This is just one great selection all round. The characters are very well developed, and for the most part you have either and instant like or dislike for the character...trust issues with these characters are developed in an instant also.
So many of the people in this book are amazingly similar to a few people we have all met at one point or another in our own lives, and I guess it is so easy to relate to the story.
Basically our main guy was adopted and went through a local school under the radar , joined the military upon graduation, and now the adoptive mom has passed away.
Returning to hold the funeral, and decide if he is going to retire from the service, and he runs across the high school sweetheart.
There seems the town has gone through drastic changes in the last 20 years, and there are many explosive issues going on like: Bad cops, crooked Feds, gang activities, terrorist, and alcohol abuse.
Maybe our hero came home to the wrong town.
I think this book might have the potential to become a modern day classic.
Hope you enjoy this book also
Nothing better than when a book has a bunch of little stories and you think you know how they are going to come together, but when it does, you're totally surprised. This book did that for me. Sounds like the start of a pretty good series. Looking forward to next book.
"A GREAT Book"
Loved this book from first few pages till the end. I believe this is going to be the first of a series with this character. I certainly hope so.
"Gets even better after reading/listening twice!"
It is rare that I read a book twice, but this one was so good that I had to buy the audiobook too. I picked up so much more listening to it after reading. It is realistic and very well written. Bring on the next Landry book!
"A Grand Slam"
New author Miller has knocked it out of the park. It is rare that I review a book. The great authors you already know and most of the new ones are okay but not great. Add Randall Miller to your great list and have a listen!
His character development of Mark Landry and this plot, leaves you waiting for round two. I'm waiting Mr. Miller....
I will listen to any story read by Steve Carlson (and or written by Randall Miller). Just as I am willing to do by those narrated by Ray Porter, Scott Brick, XE Sands, Jay Snyder, and Barry Eisler.
