I have listened to all of this serials but not the beginning...now I am in the know...just loved this one...loved the drama and tension...another hit from James Patterson.
Great story, great narration. this is the second time I've listened to this book, and it was still great!
I got this book as part of the "first in a series" promotion Audible ran a while back. While I probably would not have downloaded it, I did enjoy it and will likely listen to more in the series. It's a solid 4 star thriller, held my attention well. Not edge of your seat can't put it down but a good listen.
Ok book. Not as good as many others by this author. Some suspense. It held my attention, but was not fully suspenseful. There was an attempt to develop at least two characters, but the detached journal reciting style from on character's point of view, really did not work. Even though the main character had a major family crisis, his emotions did not come through in this book. It was ok
I enjoyed this book. The performances were good, believable and entertaining. The scenarios were original and intriguing along with the surprising ending.
This was my initial introduction to James Patterson novels and I am hooked! Detective Michael Bennett is a true patriot and credit to the profession.
I can't read now, I had a stoke
getting to know the character
they make the character come live
Jodi Picoult is my favorite author for various reasons including that she answers my emails. I am also interested in most crime dramas.
Little did I know that this is the book where Maive dies and Mary Catherine show up on the doorstep to help out with the 10 kids, 11 counting Mike, 12 counting Shamus. the storyline was very good so I would definitely suggest reading it for people who need reviews to help them
any other Michael Bennet and his 10 kids are in
they were excellent (and I'm picky)
I wasn't sure about the 'dual author' thing, but this was a great story. It kept me intrigued until the very end, and I didn't figure it out early, as sometimes happens. I /really/ liked the use of two different narrators. It helped differentiate the point-of-view right away, which in an audio book can sometimes be a little difficult. The use of two very disparate voices definitely helped me, as a listener, switch gears between the villain and Bennett. Looking forward to reading more of this series!
Yes, if you like Patterson books. His books are hit or miss with me, and this was a solid hit. Not as good as "Kiss the Girls" or "Jack & Jill", but pretty close.
Yes. It was hard to tell where the story was going, or guess what is going to happen next. Classic James Patterson plot. You didn't realize why something was happening until after a plot line was revealed. I also thought the "bad guys" in this story were some of his best since his earlier works.
The bad guy escape from the church. I didn't see how they were going to escape until it happened. The entire time I was trying to guess how, but I didn't get it right.
Like most of Patterson series the first book is almost always the best, and I would say that about this book. I wouldn't call it a classic but it was a solid book. I haven't read any other books in this series but I might down the road.
