Bobby Dollar is an angel - a real one. He knows a lot about sin, and not just in his professional capacity as an advocate for souls caught between Heaven and Hell. Bobby’s wrestling with a few deadly sins of his own - pride, anger, even lust.
But his problems aren’t all his fault. Bobby can’t entirely trust his heavenly superiors, and he’s not too sure about any of his fellow earthbound angels either, especially the new kid that Heaven has dropped into their midst, a trainee angel who asks too many questions. And he sure as hell doesn’t trust the achingly gorgeous Countess of Cold Hands, a mysterious she-demon who seems to be the only one willing to tell him the truth.
When the souls of the recently departed start disappearing, catching both Heaven and Hell by surprise, things get bad very quickly for Bobby D. End-of-the-world bad. Beast of Revelations bad. Caught between the angry forces of Hell, the dangerous strategies of his own side, and a monstrous undead avenger that wants to rip his head off and suck out his soul, Bobby’s going to need all the friends he can get - in Heaven, on Earth, or anywhere else he can find them.
You’ve never met an angel like Bobby Dollar. And you’ve never read anything like The Dirty Streets of Heaven.
Brace yourself - the afterlife is weirder than you ever believed.

Superb Spystory in an In Nomine Setting

This is clearly an In Nomine setting, but Mr Williams adds the wonderful city of St Judas in California. Characters, places (even the afterlife places) are decribed wonderfully. There is also lots of humor in this story.
Since the main character tells the story from his point of view, we had to expect american phrases and slang, but this fits nicely into the theme. The speaker does an impeccable job of adding different slangs and speechpatterns to the different characters! Wonderful!
The story gets a bit longwinded in the end (with another chase), and I was quite often amazed that Bobby Dollar gets no help from other angels, especially after the hotel scene (chapter 30), where hundreds of angels were present. The main hero seems even more paranoid and afraid of heaven than of hell, and so can solve all problems on his own.
I was really impressed with the character development of the hero, his friends, main foes and his lover.

Langweilige Detektivgeschichte!

Was genau hat Sie an The Dirty Streets of Heaven enttäuscht?

Ein "Badboy" aus dem Himmel? Die Hintergrundgeschichte mit Korruption in Himmel und Hölle so wie schlecht oder gar nicht zu Ende geführte Erzählstränge störten mich bereits von Beginn an. Nachem ich mich doch durchgequählt habe werde ich die Serie bestimmt nicht weiter verfolgen. Kann ich nur von abraten.

Was werden Sie wohl als nächstes hören?

A History of Ice and Fire

Haben Sie vorher schon ein Hörbuch mit George Newbern gehört? Wie würden Sie beide vergleichen?


Welche Emotionen hat dieses Hörbuch bei Ihnen ausgelöst? Ärger, Betroffenheit, Enttäuschung?

Enttäuschung über eine einfach schwache Geschichte die durch Liebschaften zwischen Gut und Böse aufgepeppt werden sollte. Leider ohne Erfolg.
