Prime story telling.

I read book 1 ages ago but going through these 4 does give a deeper feel for the person begging the title.

A Little Too Violent

Although Mexico’s drug-based economy certainly was depicted with authenticity, some of the violence was hard to get through. Some of the violence did not really advance the story. Dick Hill’s performance, however, never disappoints.

Clever and entertaining.

A gruesome tale that provides a glimpse into cartel life. It was well written with clever plots and phenomenal narration.

Felt left hanging though!

Dick Hill can't do Mexican accents

This set of books is a good deal, many hours of mindless adventure for not much money. And Dick Hill is a great narrator . . . except when he is tasked with doing Latino accents. Of course the conceit of a novel set in Mexico where people speak English with Mexican accents is silly to begin with . . . so in keeping with that siliness, Dick uses an accent that is right out of central casting of every bad movie Mexican bandito. I work with Latinos daily, and have for many years . . . and I have yet to hear a single one speak the way Dick Hill does. He can pronounce simple Spanish words, which is good . . . but that accent. Oh, God, 40 hours of horrible Spanglish, I want my ears back . . .

Starts out good

The first story is the best IMHO. After that it drifts away from the Assassin and focuses on the police inspector and his life.
I’ll get the 5th book in hopes that it returns to the original story line

What a big waste of time

The narrator did a splendid job with a sub standard work. Russell Blake is now a resident of my “never read” so called authors.
