Description

Deputy US Marshal Miro Jones finally has everything he ever wanted. He's head-over-heels in love and married to the man of his dreams, his partner Ian Doyle, he's doing well at work, and all his friends are in good places as well. Things are all tied up nicely...until they're not.

Change has never been easy for Miro, and when situations at work force the team he's come to depend on to break apart, and worst of all, his and Ian's individual strengths put them on two separate paths, he's pretty certain everything just went up in smoke.

But before he can even worry about the future, his past comes for a visit, shaking his world up even more. It's hard to tell what road he should truly be on, but as he learns some paths are forged and others are discovered, it might be that where he's going is the right course after all. If he can navigate all the twists and turns, he and Ian might just get their happily ever after.

Perfect Mary Calmes and Tristan James!

I have loved this series from the beginning and this 4th book is perfect. Tristan James' voice IS Miro Jones! I love the way that Mary Calmes' books mention the day to day things so you feel like you really know your character. I love the fact the books are long, not just 2 or 3 hours. Some books fit the shorter length (that works for some books) but not this series.
SPOILER ALRET:
I really want to know: 1.) How the 16 year old died? 2.) What happened to the 2 new Marshals that just transferred in to Chicago? 3.) Does Ned and his mother get what they deserve? 4.) What happens to Miro and Ian in the future (PLEASE-no getting old and passing!) If I don't find out that is ok, they will forever stay at this age in my mind. 5.) Do they like their jobs now? 6.) What is in the safe? 7.) I have loved Miro and Ian also Jory and Sam, can I have a new series?
Thank you Ms. Calmes and Ms. James for the hours of enjoyment I have gotten from this series.

Seems like mostly flashbacks

This was extremely short despite being almost 9hrs long. There's a lot of flashbacks in it and the actual story is more like a novella. Great story, but just when it feels like its actually just starting it ends. So 4/5 for this one unfortunately.

I'm torn between recommending this book and not recommending this book. I hate having an incomplete series, so I'd recommend it just based on that, and there's a lot of important details in this book that (if there's another) you'll miss out on if you don't get this one. But is it really worth it? Well, honestly, if Mary Calmes doesn't publish another in the series, then I'd say no and leave book three as the ending.

I'd give this one 10 stars if I could!

I have to say I was worried when I read the synopsis for this one. Miro has been through SO much, I just wanted to him to have five solid minutes of happiness and peace. The way things roll out in the story though, I shouldn't have been worried. It's an action packed, non stop roller coaster that twists and turns and hurls you sideways then drops you on your ass. But it's so damn good!!! The book literally hits the ground running and it doesn't stop until the very end. I was beyond engrossed with this story, I was listening in the car via my Zune which I don't normally do.

After listening to the entire book, the path Calmes put these characters on made perfect sense. I mean, seriously, if you know Ian and Miro you know that life is never going to be home by five, dinner at the table with an aged red wine, feeding each other strawberries and making love by candlelight. With these two it's more like spaghetti that doesn't drip it's so thick at damn near midnight after dropping a sociopath of at the nuthouse. Followed up with hot, rough, sweaty sex in the pantry before falling into bed exhausted and sticky then waking up with thoughts of beating the shit out of the ringing cell phone with a very big gun.

Tristan James, goddamn I love this man. There is nothing he can't do with his voice. What I love is that each and every book in this story flows seemlesly with each and every character clearly conveyed with the same tones, nuances and vocal ticks from one book to the next. I could probably spend a weekend listening to this series back to back and be perfectly content.

If you like stories with two strong willed gentleman that can't get enough of each other and like to chase crazy people into burning buildings or run toward a spray of bullets instead of away from them. You'll love this one! You have to start with book 1 though, they must be read or listened to in order.

Fantastic!

So many emotions, and all of them good!

I love this series so much I cannot adequately convey how much. I'm sad this is the last time we'll get a story from Miro's POV, but all the ends have been tied up and I'm looking forward to what Calmes does with a new POV in the next book.

Tristan James is phenomenal - buy this (and all the Marshal books) audio!! ❤

Recommended!!

End

If this is the end, then it is a fitting one, but more Marshals/Tristan would be great

Things really change

This book seems to be a wrap up of the series. People deal with career changes, old friends and old foes come back into the picture, and a mysterious gift is given in the end. Our favorite federal marshals have a bunch of adventures happen.
I really enjoyed this book and loved the narration. Mary Calmes is an excellent writer and hearing her stories spoken is a real treat.

Miro and Ian 4ever! But.....

So let me start this with my usual caveat. If I listen or read a book it gets 5 stars because ratings are an author’s livelihood. And I want authors to keep writing. This is the final installment in Mary Calmes’ Marshall series and you absolutely must read them in order. Miro is probably my favorite Mary Calmes character. Tristan James does an amazing job embodying her characters. I have relistened to these books multiple times. That being said.......(spoilers)

So I will start with the positive:
Ian and Miro continue to be adorable
Eli and Miro become best buds
Sam Khage continues to be badass
You get some Vault series tie-ins
Chickee Baby is awesome
There are some very cute scenes that I absolutely love reading/listening to over and over again.

Now for the rest:
The final book felt rushed. I read this first before I listened and it felt rushed. When you listen it will still feel rushed and a little bit random. This book is the finale, and I had hoped for a really good showdown. Craig Hartley, the continuous villain of the series, ends with a whimper rather than a bang. Most of the book feels like an existential crisis to remove Miro from the action and even when the Hartley drama is ended, the final drama that randomly dissolves one of Miro’s best friend Janet’s marriage made me say “Why?”. I mean seriously, Why? This is the friend who supposedly spent years trying to get pregnant and went through serious issues but somehow after the child is born and months old her supposedly loving husband becomes an egregiously stupid, bordering on abusive, mama’s boy. Plus Min suddenly goes from dating a coffee drinking performance artist to being engaged to a Hollywood reality show mechanic from Thanksgiving to March. The last chapter really feels like a “Hurry and wrap this thing up” :(

If you have read the series then you will know that Miro (and this is part of his charm) is a kind of oblivious, biased, and an unreliable narrator. He’s a wonderful, loveable, and heroic guy but definitely a bit clueless. So when you are reading the series you kind of have to take his perspective with a few tablespoons of salt. The first three books do a great job keeping that cognitive dissonance in check but this last book, Miro’s internal monologue was giving me whiplash. I think my problem is it felt like the author was definitely telling rather than showing, and on top of it the scenes themselves felt scripted. Okay I have said my piece about the book.

Now onto the narration. I have my favorite narrators and Mary Calmes’ books introduced me to several of them. Tristan James, especially for the first 3 books of the Marshall series gets top marks. But.....Again this book feels rushed. He absolutely changes the side character voices (Most crushingly, the villain, Craig Hartley loses the wonderfully creepy melodic tone to his dialogue with Miro) And often Miro and Ian are indistinguishable when they are talking. All in all I wish both the author and the narrator had spent another month or even year to knock this book out of the park like the other three previous books.
