I decided to try out this book because I am a Scott Brick junkie.
So yes, there are parts of this book that are... say, a wee-bit unbelievable. I'll call it "Hollywood-movie reality." :) In fact, I could easily see this book headlining at my local theater.
If you can get past this small hiccup, you've got a great, entertaining listen. With some great plot twists - right up to the very end. Scott Brick is his usual brilliant self - although I must admit that I found his voice to be a little old for the main charater. Still, I give this book a solid 4/5.
I really enjoyed this book. I am in a high tech field and found the plot especially fascinating. I loved the comparisons to the spy culture. I don't want to give anything away so just get it and enjoy the ride.
I enjoyed this book very much it was a fun "read" and held my interest. The narrator was very good. Right up to the minute suspense. Well worth your time.
I chose this book because of the great reviews. When I listened to it, I liked the story narration, the clever dialog and the initial premise. I thought I was listening to a 5-star book. However, as the story continued, it departed from believability and I found the main character who is very smart, doing dumb things and not what would be obvious to me or anyone else. I kept listening for the great ending I thought was coming. Then came the ending, which was a really Big Disappointment. The author could have done so much with the story at the end, but turned it into a corporation bashing piece of unbelievable fiction.
Great story, great pace. You don't have to know anything about the industry to be intrigued by the situation the main character finds himself in. I highly recommend this book.
Corporate espionage is interesting! The title is kind of lame, but apt. This was an engrossing tale, well told, with enough turns to keep you interested. Well read by (I believe) Scott Brick, as always. There is the obligatory love interest but it's not overdone or corny and it's completely relevant. I'm going to look for more titles by this author.
I really enjoyed listening to this book. The reader truly was excellent, and the plot gradually sucked me in. This isn't a deep soul-searcher, but it is a GREAT diversion, one in which you grow to care about the characters involved.
Congratulations to anyone who makes it to review #100 on this book, but I couldn't resist chiming in. This hip, smart, taut, pitch-perfect thriller is a great piece of work, and remains in the top 5 of my 140+ Audible listens. The trick is the voice . . . no, I don't mean the matchless Scott Brick . . . I mean the narrative voice of the protagonist. Finder nails it from the first sentence, and it cuts through the clutter of run-of-the-mill detectives and private investigators so routine in the genre. He has also tapped perfectly into a strong cultural live-wire . . . the modern corporation as not just benign oppressor, but potential malevolent and poweful enemy. As one reviewer obseved, without the Soviet Union as a convenient Cold War nemesis, the corporate boogey-man provides a chillingly all-too-easy-to-believe-in substitute to keep us awake at night! Five Stars to Finder for tapping a fresh cultural nerve, for creating an irresistable and unforgettable main character, and . . . oh yeah . . . spinning a spellbinding tale!
