Blurb: Everyone knows that Prophet – former Navy SEAL, former CIA spook, full-time pain in the ass – works alone. But his boss at Extreme Escapes, Ltd. has just assigned Proph a new partner and a case haunted by ghosts from Proph’s past. Suddenly he has to confront both head-on.
Tom Boudreaux – failed FBI agent, failed sheriff, full-time believer in bad luck – is wondering why the head of a private contracting firm has hunted him down to offer him a job. Still, he’s determined to succeed this time, despite being partnered with Prophet, EE’s most successful, lethal, and annoying operative, on a case that resurrects his own painful past.
Together Prophet and Tom must find a way to take down killers in the dangerous world of underground cage matches while fighting their own dangerous attraction. When they find themselves caught in the crossfire, these two loners must trust each other and work together to escape their ghosts…or pay the price.
Review: I found that as I was listening to Adam North’s narration of Catch a Ghost, I kept going back and forth on how I felt about his performance of this book. At the beginning, I honestly wasn’t sure I would get through it. Something about Tom Boudreaux’s voice irritated me. It could just be that the narration was so much different than how I heard the character in my head while I was reading the book, but whatever it was, I just couldn’t get into the audio at the start.
I absolutely adore the Hell or High Water series—it was one of the first M/M series I ever read, and I devoured the books. I was completely thrilled to see them available on audio, so even though I was not happy with the narration, I continued to listen, and the more I listened, the more I started to enjoy it. Tom’s voice grew on me and by the end of the book, I was quite happy that I’d stuck with it. And now, I’m looking forward to listening to the next book in the series.
