Publisher's Summary

The Space Team Universe just got a whole lot darker.

In an alien city torn apart by crooked cops and ruthless criminals, private detective Dan Deadman specializes in cases unusual and bizarre.

Sure, he doesn't smell great, and he's technically been dead for quite some time, but if you've got a rampaging Hell-beast tearing up your street, or a portal to another dimension appearing in your bathroom, Dan's your man.

After saving a mysterious young woman named Ollie from the clutches of something big, slimy, and unpleasant, Dan gets entangled in a missing child case, a string of grisly murders, and a severed woman's arm that just won't leave him alone.

And then there's the demonic entity who'll stop at nothing to get its tentacles on Ollie, even if it means destroying the whole damn planet.

Times like these, Dan would give his right nut to be a real detective.

If he still had nuts.

From the world of Space Team: The Guns of Nana Joan, Dial D for Deadman is the first darkly comedic action adventure novel starring Dan Deadman, Space Detective.

Nottttt badddddd...

Would you listen to Dial D for Deadman: A Space Team Universe Novel again? Why?

I probably will, it might grow on me a little more.

What other book might you compare Dial D for Deadman: A Space Team Universe Novel to and why?

You have to compare it to Space Team, which unfortunately for Dan, is so epically fantastic that any comparison leaves any other books quivering like a green blob

Which character – as performed by Phil Thron – was your favorite?

Can't go past Dan himself

If you could take any character from Dial D for Deadman: A Space Team Universe Novel out to dinner, who would it be and why?

Hell no, I'd steer well clear of the lot of them.

Any additional comments?

It'd be a five star novel if I wasn't constantly comparing it to the quirkily fabulous Space Team. It just doesn't have the same degree of unpredictable lunacy that makes Space Team so brilliant. Oh and Phil Thron is unbelievably good, he should be an Audible Megastar.

Phil Thron

Voice of Artur is perfect. Best performance by Phil yet in Barry's books. Great start to the series.

Fantastic and worth every credit

This book is based in the universe created for Space Team and although I highly recommend listening to Space Team because, well, frankly it's great, you don't have to be that familiar with the Space Team universe to enjoy this book.

That being said, it's a great story coupled with great narration. I could honestly listen to Phil Thron reading the iTunes terms of service and be entertained. It just helps that he's given a story that is hilarious and ridiculous, and yet thrilling and suspenseful at the same time. Sure there are some cliche bits to it but they're all given their own spin and uniqueness and it just works. Give it a try, if you've not listened to Space Team yet, you probably will want to after this one.

A great addition to the universe!

Who was your favorite character and why?

Artur (not sure of the spelling because of audio) is hilarious. Always lightens a tense spot.

What about Phil Thron’s performance did you like?

Phil does another amazing performance. Always a joy to listen to.

If you could rename Dial D for Deadman: A Space Team Universe Novel, what would you call it?

Dan Deadman - Space Dick

Any additional comments?

Not as much comedy as the Space Team books but Artur definitely has some great lines and gets funnier as the book goes on. Great story overall. I can't wait til the next one hits audio.

Just couldn’t get into it...

I gave up about 1/2 way thru - I’ve listened to the space team series of books and liked them well enough, but I just couldn’t get into this one.

Worth Listening

As a stand-alone book, and I assume and hope, series, the characters are awesome and I am really looking forward to the next in the series. The Irish dudes profanity had me actually smiling and laughing out loud, as the delivery of these lines by the narrator was flawless. The only downside for me, was that being a fan of the awesome Space Team series, the voice for Dan was the same as Mechs, but do not let that make you miss out on a great listening opportunity. 10 out of 5!
