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.
Dial D for Deadman: A Space Team Universe Novel. Dan Deadman Space Detective, Book 1 written by Barry J. Hutchison is a story set in the Space Team Universe. The listener does not need to be familiar with this Universe to enjoy this story. The story takes place on a planet that is an interstellar crossroads named Parloo. The planet is divided between those living on the surface called the Downthere and those living above in the Upthere.
Our main character Dan Deadman is an established character from the Spaceteam Universe. He is a deceased detective at large. Feeling no pain is quite useful in his line of work as well as the ability to have parts reattached by his friend Nedran. Dan deals with a massive debt he owes to some very nasty people, a person from the Malware dimension with no memory, and a missing persons case with a unique twist.
All told Dial D for Deadman is part noir detective novel, part paranormal mystery, part comedy is a science fiction setting. For those looking for a hardboiled detective with a paranormal twist, this audiobook might not work the humor while entertaining is more of the teenage boy locker room level type. The story does hold the listener’s attention but the listener needs to be the target audience for this book.
The narration on this audiobook was provided by Phil Thron. Mr. Thron brought this cast of characters to life with his memorable performance. I enjoyed his portrayal of Dan and Nedran especially. The way he voiced each character during the scenes where Nedran replaces Dan’s arm is so darn funny. The production quality of this audiobook is also the highest quality. I heard no problems during the entire performance. There were not any detectable flaws that I was able to hear during the entire performance such as loops, breaks, or buzzing. The production was crisp and clear. Zertex Media Ltd delivered an excellent audiobook production.
