Joseph Finder had me glued to earphones with this thriller. The way John Grisham get you completely absorbed in the legal world; and the way Tom Clancy fascinates with the details of modern surveillance technique and weaponry; that's how Finder draws you into the world of high-stakes, high-tech, cut-throat business skullduggery. His novel, "Paranoia", might well make industrial espionage a mystery genre all its own. A very cool book, and wonderfully performed by Scott Brick.
I am Scott Brick's biggest fan, and have been a member of Audible since the very beginning.
I have listened to many titles over the years, and this is, by far, the one that stands out in my mind as the most enjoyable. Adam gets under your skin and you want his to succeed and fail for different reasons.
What a great story! Evoked many feelings towards the characters and the book. Highly recommended.
This book is well read but the story is mediocre. I found it really hard to believe a 26-year old "party boy" is as brilliant as everyone seems to think he is. His fast rise to the top doesn't make sense given his actions. And the love plot with him and a fellow employee is stupid. But I like the twist at the end which suprised me because I thought the plot was going along the normal course of an overplayed story. If it didn't have this ending, I would have rated this book lower.
I enjoyed this book from beginning to end. A non-stop, exciting story with a surprise ending. I didn't want it to end. Scott Brick always is an added plus.
How have I missed this guy's books? This is one fine read.
Beyond the fast action and suspense, anyone who has spent time in or around the boardroom or executive suites of a high tech corporation will start attaching familiar names and faces to the different characters. It's one of those stories that you'd call far fetched if it didn't seem so close to the truth. This one is all thumbs up.
Takes a real stretch of the imagination to see this plot as believeable. Not likely a 26 year old could reach such levels in a new company a few weeks after starting. Also I am not sure it is a good technique to spend 95% of a book developing characters and then completely change the characters in the last 5% of the book. I will say I enjoyed the first 95% but was disappointed in the ending.
I like unabridged novels. When I first joined Audible, many were abridged. That has changed. Non-fiction, politics, bios are favorites
This is a pretty standard mystery. One saving grace is the reading by Scott Brick. He always does a good job.
