I liked all the adventures-well except the last short story (Conch Wave). That one was too rushed and not as well developed as the others---due to being very short. But can't hold that against Troy (or author David Berens) because it was just a short layover when the bus broke down.
Surprisingly the gruesome details of the books didn't turn me off. I think I was too anxious to see how Troy would pull the impossible off once again---and who he would meet along the way.
An amazing value and loads of good reading!
The books are enjoyable and I highly recommend reading them in order of publication since Troy’s life is serialized in the books.

Being that this is a box set, I won’t comment on the individual books but, taken as a whole, there is plenty to like here. Although compared to Dorsey and Hiaasen, I would say that Berens’ books have cut out their own groove. True, they take full advantage of the Floridian landscape as is right and proper. The body count is lower than a Dorsey novel though and, good as some of Berens’ characters are, he can’t compete with Hiaasen for flat out weirdness. Troy Bodean himself is good company but lacks an edge. One thing I would say is that the endings tend to follow the same pattern. The action starts to tail off and then a chapter or so later it is all over. I prefer more measured conclusions that keep the reader guessing over a longer span.
All in all, if you have some time on your hands and in the current lockdown climate, you may well have, then this box set offers an entertaining read and one that will have you sniggering into your Corona. Have your orange slices on standby.
The stories are all really interesting and well crafted and considering how long they are there are surprisingly few errors with regards to typos etc. I find lots of kindle books nowadays are strewn with errors which means having to re-read sections over and over to work out the meaning but pleasingly that's not the case with this collection.
I enjoyed it immensely.
The only negative for me is that the main character, Troy Bodean, just comes across as a drunken loser who is quite stupid. I won't go into detail because I don't want to give any spoilers but I just came away feeling a little sad that so many people had died who could have been saved if hadn't been such a moron.
