If you listen closely you can almost hear them as Bower gives life to the weirdly eccentric characters that inhabit the book.”

“I had to wonder when I republished DESERT TOWN would it work for today’s audience. Would it be buried under the shadow of such marvelous character interpretations of the film version? Well, the book is reaching a diverse audience and sales are doing very well. And truly one of the biggest reasons for this is because once again an extraordinary talent found in voice over actor, Michael Bower, who has taken the original material and elevated it to everything that Muller stated above. Oh, except for the Miklos Rosza violins. But f you listen closely you can almost hear them as Bower gives life to the weirdly eccentric characters that inhabit the book.

I am thrilled with every aspect of the audiobook. The acting is exceptional and I say acting because Bower doesn’t just monotonously read a book . . . no, he acts out the characters of the book. The production values are pristine and the timing is precise.

Bowers has in DESERT TOWN given us an audiobook that you can close your eyes to as you listen and just be taken away into a Technicolor world all in your own head. Ramona Stewart’s words and Michael Bower’s mastery of voice and communication equals nothing less than grand audio entertainment. Thank you Michael for reading the book and for placing yourself in the ranks of the great actors named above with your own special interpretation of this wonderful old crackerjack noir and giving it new life.”

“Over all I enjoyed this story. It had a new twist to the ‘zombie’ vibe. I liked that. The narrator is Michael Bower. He has a nice voice. Sharp, crisp, and edgy at the right times. Perfect for a story like this. Warning – If you have a weak stomach, this book is not for you. There are lots of blood, guts, and horror, exploding stomachs, torture, and creepy parasites that will haunt your dreams.”

“…You want the truth? It was a lucky day indeed when I found you, because I found not only the true voice of Carter O’Brien (a gun-swift, do-right character I’ve now lived with for more than thirty years), but also the voices of all the good guys, bad guys, soiled doves, lady ranchers, children, crotchety old-timers and savage red men around him. Thank you for that!”
