Publisher's Summary

The Audible and New York Times best-selling Dispatcher series returns with a brand-new mystery, performed by Zachary Quinto.

The world has changed. Now, when someone is murdered, they almost always come back to life—and there are professionals, called “dispatchers”, who kill in order to save lives, to give those near the end a second chance. Tony Valdez is a dispatcher, and he has never been busier.

But for as much as the world has changed, some things have stayed the same. Greed, corruption, and avarice are still in full swing. When Tony is called to a Chicago emergency room by an old friend and fellow dispatcher, he is suddenly and unwillingly thrown into a whirlpool of schemes and plots involving billions of dollars, with vast caches of wealth ranging from real estate to cryptocurrency up for grabs.

All Tony wants to do is keep his friend safe. But it’s hard to do when friends keep secrets, enemies offer seductive deals, and nothing is ever what it seems. The world has changed...but the stakes are still life and death.

Zachary Quinto is mesmerising when he reads.
The story is solid and I found myself fully engaged in it for the entirety. Listened in one sitting.

A good continuation of the story

Really enjoy John Ss writing. Story was good, not as multifaceted as his other stories but some good twists.

Just hard boiled enough!

I've have always enjoyed Scalzi's story lines but in the past his handling of dialogue has sometimes let them down as audio books. Not this time the story was driven by the dialogue and driven well.

I hope this bodes well for future audio offerings from Scalzi.

"Please sir! May I have some more?"
