So, audio has been a tricky proposition for me. Last year, Tantor Media hit me up about the audio rights for Escalation and Holding Action. This was a big deal, so far as I know, so I jumped at it.
Only to be rather let down by the result. Despite what they’d told me, Tantor apparently didn’t do anything to promote the books, so they’ve languished. Which led to silence when I asked about continuing with Crimson Star.
Well, if you want something done right, do it yourself.
Cody Parcell did the audio for Kill Yuan, and he did a bang-up job of it. So, he and I worked out a deal to get Crimson Star done. It’s taken some time–audio is a lot of work–and the quality control check took a long time, but it’s finally done, and it’s finally up. And Cody is currently working on Strategic Assets (he went the extra mile when it came to Mandarin pronunciations in Kill Yuan, and he’s doing the same with the Polish in Strategic Assets.)
They call themselves Soldados de Aztlan.
The Mexican cartels have a foothold in Phoenix.
Can Hank’s team put down the movement?
All around the globe, tensions mount. While Matt’s team heads off to Slovakia, Hank’s unit has been given its orders to quell an uprising in Arizona. The rampant crime and political unrest in the home of the Suns and Cardinals have reached a tipping point.
It wasn’t just the cartels… Local gangs had joined them.
When the grid goes down, all the rules change. Panic spreads. Around 1.6 million people’s lives hang in the balance as Soldados de Aztlan brings down a firestorm of terror on the city.
What’s the team’s next move?
Crimson Star is now on Audible, and will be cross-posted to Amazon and iTunes soon.
