In this second adventure Bronson happens upon a murder being committed on Liberty Pier. He chases the perpetrator several blocks, but is unable to apprehend the killer. Bronson lives and works with a magician, Mr. Horum. In the course of the mystery, Bronson will use his Dogboy costume to go undercover. He will struggle to stay on good terms with his girlfriend reporter named Cindy and her computer savvy friends as well as his father’s old friend, Wylie Morgan. A murder, a suicide, a newspaper, a superhero, and a budding romance are elements of the plot. Bronson struggles with his ability to see into the future, his teen emotions, and his need to develop meaningful personal relationships.
There are plenty of twists and turns in the plot, and the action is pretty much non-stop in this novel of less than two hundred pages. Will Bronson find himself and solve the mystery? How will he go forward in future escapades protecting the city he loves?
Recommended for ages twelve and up, though some younger middle school students might enjoy the read. Equally appealing to both genders as there are strong male and female characters. This is not a classic superhero comic book story.
Den of Thieves was an excellent introduction to the very unique world of Dogboy. It is a superhero story that is sometimes dark and gritty. It is a fantastical adventure mystery that's somewhat grounded in the real world. It's a great blend that comes off feeling old school and modern all at once.
Book 2 brings you more of that world and expands on it. Questions will be answered. Other questions will surface. The relationships between the main characters will be further built upon. New relationships will be forged. Expectations for the next book will be raised. And so forth.
I think what the author really nails (in both books) is the pacing. There's never a lull in the story. And yet somehow it never feels like it's rushing you along. Sure, it helps that the characters are interesting and relateable too (even the minor ones). It's quite easy to pick up and read.
[stamp of approval]
Bronson Black reminds us that being a Hero means something and Bill Meeks does another wonderful job of weaving morality tales and timeless adventure into another highly entertaining read.
Nathan Beatty brings Bronson, aka Dogboy to life. He does all the characters and is amazing with his voice. He has an enormous amount of versatility. Dogboy jumps to life through audio as well. It was a book I wanted to listen to all in one sitting and although it isn't necessarily a long story, I like to take my time and enjoy the ride. It's fun and adventurous. I hope there will be more Adventures of Dogboy in the future. This is adult/young adult and I could easily see this as a late evening TV series.
On Liberty Pier, Dogboy is engaged with a new set of adult ne'er do wells, more corporate and conspiratorial than the colorful gang he faced in "Den of Thieves." However, they are as crafty and dangerous as his first foes; near the book's end, the reader will be wondering if Dogboy can indeed escape this time.
"Danger on Liberty Pier" is extremely fast-paced but does not neglect character development. We get more great interaction between Dogboy and Mr. Horum, and our hero's close friend Cindy also features prominently. I'm still anxious to find out more about what the Mayor is all about (a yet to be stitched up plot thread from the first book), but that question only makes me look forward more to the next Dogboy adventure.
NB's performance adds color and depth to the characters, and enhances the writing.
