I recently finished listening to the audiobook of The Bezzle, the second of three titles in the Martin Hench series.

Martin Hench is a forensic accountant. Sounds exciting, no? But he is a forensic accountant for hire in Silicon Valley, unwinding complex frauds and scams as he travels around in his converted rock-band touring bus, The Salted Hash. Think Travis McGee for the digital age. The book is narrated by Wil Wheaton and is not available on Audible because of their insistence on using DRM that removes rights from authors and readers alike. You can find it on libro.fm.

I won’t attempt to summarize or critique it. I’ll just say that it’s a lot of fun (as was Red Team Blues, the first of the series) and I thoroughly enjoyed it. The next installment is a year away, and I can’t wait.
