Quotes & Awards

  • “Only a gifted performer could bring such an incredible story to life and, equally important, make it believable. Dennis Boutsikaris is the right man for the job. He provides realistic accents for the colorful characters that abound. Furthermore, he knows exactly when to ratchet up the tension and bring listeners to the edge of their seats. Ultimately, Boutsikaris makes the unbelievable seem like breaking news. Incredible! AudioFile on The Assassin

  • ...[Boutsikaris's] performance is wonderfully restrained, and he deftly fuses narration and reportage. Library Journal on The Assassin
  • Dennis Boutsikaris packs his presentation with a dazzling variety of accents and characters of both genders. However, he is at his best as Carmellini. Boutsikaris provides a unique vocal identity with an expression and tempo that match Tommy's wiseacre attitude. With just a little imagination, listeners get the feeling they are sharing a beer with Carmellini while Tommy tells his fascinating story. It doesn't get much better than this. AudioFile on The Traitor, Winner of the Earphones award for truly exceptional presentations

    " This was my first Coonts and will be the first of many. I found it to be riveting, well-plotted, well-written and full of interesting and colorful characters. Well worth your time and effort! "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 by Bruce | 1/27/2014

    " I like about everything Stephen Coonts writes. His first book was probably his most commercially successful. It was "The Flight of the Intruder", and became a movie. But his latest set of stories around a thief named Tommy Carmellini are great! They are exciting and are even funny. Highly recommend this book to anyone that likes fiction thrillers. "
