Best Serverd Cold

I really enjoyed this story, reminded me a bit of Death Wish. I love a good revenge story and this played out well for that. Unique cause for the vengeance, but I would have done the same thing. The plot played out a bit unrealistic as I thought everyone other than the main character, won’t try to spell his name, was dumb. I think the average person would have been a lot more skeptical and behaved differently, but I loved how it played out regardless. Expected the ending, but wished for a different one.

As a father and husband I totally get the drive to redeem your family. I liked the hesitation and struggle he had with helping versus killing his foes. It is a great struggle that he went through and I think Eric Reese was able to write it perfectly that the listener feels it too. On one hand I was forgiving, on the other I was hoping for a gruesome death.

Tom Fria did a good job narrating this book. I liked his character voices and thought he really brought the story to life.

I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

Vengeance will blacken the soul!

Grief can lead to vengeance...and this is what has happened to a Vietnamese man. His wife and daughter were brutally attacked and murdered by 7 marines just before the end of the Vietnam War. It has taken several years but the old man is finally in America to meet out his vengeance. As the bodies pile up, we’re torn between wanting Xuan to accomplish his mission and wanting mercy for the 7.
This was a quick and captivating book; was well written and narrated. Worth the listen.

Realistic story

This isn't just a book about war, it's a book about writing about tragedy and coming to terms with loss. The story was meaningful and symbolic and just shocked me with the sheer amount of truth and power.

Listened to the book in one sitting.

Listened to the book in one sitting. The plot is good. Had a nice twist. Thrilling enough to keep my attention. Enjoyed how succinct the book was. Would enjoy it even if it was longer.

Mixed Feelings

I received this book in exchange for my honest review.
The narration was ok, and the story had potential. Unfortunately, I had a hard time enjoying the book because of the unnecessary cussing thrown in when it didn't need to be. I am not usually bothered by cussing, but the F-bomb being used so frequently during parts of this book distracted me from the action. This wasn't my favorite, but I think others could definitely enjoy this book. As I said in the title, overall this left me with mixed feelings.

Short but interesting

Xuan is on a mission. His mission, which he decided to accept, was to revenge the death of his family during the Vietnam war. He found and dealt.

It was a little slow in the beginning, but all in all, a good listen.

A Wonderful Short Novel To Make You Think.

Seven brutal killers are to be murdered by the original two victims husband and father in an act of revenge. The back story is the Vietnam war but the time is now. Do we, the listener, condone what is to happen? Through good writing and narration we are constantly questioning our own feelings about the characters. An entertaining, interesting and worthwhile listen.

Time to pay for what you've done.

A short novella of revenge: an old Vietnamese man travels to the USA to destroy those seven marines who had raped and murdered hi wife an daughter at the conclusion of the war. An intriguing list of ways to dispose of each individual in a close group of friends, but without any emotion in the writing and the premise didn't really good up. Nevertheless, an enjoyable short read.
Narration by Tom Cruz is fine, well paced and intoned, his slightly gruff voice well suited to the subject.
My thanks to the rights holder of Last One to Murder, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy
