Summary

A very dangerous man. That's Paul Kavanagh, an ex-Green Beret with nothing but time on his hands--until he gets an offer to steal a shipment of tactical nuclear weapons form the US government--and finds himself a partner, George Dattner, who has the cold eyes of a trained killer. Each of these men alone is dangerous. But anyone who tries to stop them together is guaranteed not to come out of it alive!

Decent story, improperly match to narrator

What did you like best about Such Men Are Dangerous? What did you like least?

This is early Lawrence Block, but it's not bad. I've read a ton of Block, and enjoyed most of it. This is lacking the some of the substance of his later works that I have enjoyed (the dark detail of Scudder's world, the random musings of Keller), but overall a decent story in line with some of today's action movies.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

Nothing.

What didn’t you like about Fred Sullivan’s performance?

This was the reason I wrote this review. Fred Sullivan is a good narrator. He's got good timing and character voices. However, his effeminate voice is totally mismatched to the story. Somehow, I could not get myself to believe that Paul Kavanaugh, ex-special ops tough guy, sounds like Harvey Fierstein

Was Such Men Are Dangerous worth the listening time?

For a Lawrence Block fan, yes.
