This was my first look at John Gilstrap but not my first unabridged; book. The story was good, but extremely wordy, even for unabridged. The narrator,Jeremy Gage, spoke extremely fast, which made it difficult for me to follow since John Gilstrap shifts between scenes quickly within the same chapters. The Johnathan Grave character is compelling and easy to root for in the story. I will try the next one in the series when I'm not trying to divide my attention with other matters simultaneously istening to the audiobook..
Another Narrator, Could not listen to this voice. So I don't know if it was a good book or not.
A book narratorated by Stevie Ray Dallimore or Christina Traistor.
So far, this is going in my "unable to finish" file. The narrator gives one of the worst performances I've ever heard. The story starts out pretty good, but I can't stand listening to this guy any longer.
Why would you have a story about an all American, highly trained, retired special ops tough guy narrated by someone w/ a British accent? The narration was high quality but it just doesn't fit characters from America's Heartlands. The sorry was good and the characters were too but it was akin to having a Texan narrate a James Bond story. I wish I had read it instead of listened. My advice...make sure when you listen to the sample that you understand where the story takes place. I will read more Gilstrap but will be more careful when selecting.
I almost didn't get this book because of the mediocre reviews and complaints about narration. This is my first John Gilstrap book, and I sympathize with listeners who have listened previously and accustomed this character with a different narrator, always tricky. As a new listener however, I thought the narration was just great and fitting for someone who had inherited a ton of family money and has such outrageous and dangerous adventures and therefore fitting. If you're looking for a book that is fun, not too predictable, with a satisfying ending, and good guys to root for, this is it. A solid 4 star listen.
I am on my second round of listening to this series and they are just as wonderful the second time around. The action is non-stop but somehow Mr. Gilstrap finds a way to weave in some pretty thoughtful insights. These books stand shoulder to shoulder with those of Mark Greaney, Marc Cameron, Andrew Peterson, Alex Berenson, Lee Child and Vince Flynn.
Any one who enjoys a good murder mystery should enjoy the plot but the unsuitable style of the narrator makes it hard to follow, much less appreciate. Only curiosity about the outcome kept me from cutting out well before the end.
This writer is new to me. I have stored the complete series in my wishlist and will enjoy them. Keeps me in mind of Jack Reacher which for me is excellent writing
