“Lifeguard is a fast-paced page-turner…If this is representative of his usual work, then he has just won himself a new fan.” BookReporter.com
“Sexy, action-packed, with danger around every corner, this book engages listeners from the first moment. Billy Campbell heightens the tension with his pacing as he easily takes on the persona of Ned Kelly, lifeguard, thief, and, ultimately, avenger. Told from the Ned’s point of view, this story has it all: murder, mystery, art theft, romance, police chases, FBI agents, all among the wealthy community of Palm Beach. Campbell makes the listener feel Ned’s emotions as the thief becomes a hero and then tries to impress the girl. Music, along with the occasional sound effects, such as gunshots and motorcycle chases, add to the fun and intrigue.” AudioFile
“Patterson and Gross have come up with an enjoyable thriller, and Billy Campbell is skilled in his presentation of the unique plotting, well-developed characters, and fast-paced action. This will definitely be a hot item in all audio collections.” Library Journal (audio review)
