Im an over the road truck driver. I love Michael Connely books.
I didn't want the story to end. Great book. I'm really coming to enjoy the authors works.
I recently discovered him and truly enjoy his writing. I can't guess the ending, so refreshing. I'm trying to listen to all his books.
I got several of Greg Iles books during a sale and this is the first one out of three that I listen to that I actually liked. The narrator was absolutely fantastic, one of the best I've listened to, the book and the characters were well written well developed the story plot was unique and different had tons of twists. It was a thoroughly engaging book and compared to the other books of his that I've listened to this one was fantastic. His others were horrible but this one was well worth the credit.
Very well written and narrated. There are some genuine surprises and a few parts that were fairly predictable, but overall I kept listening as the suspense was well handled.
Ingenious story lines another excellent book by Iles.
Characters are annoying, story is way tooooooo long bogged down with unnecessary nonsense, story line was promising and went south FAST into ridiculous! I'm listening and thinking...' When is this torture going to be over'.
Way too much description on torturing monkeys and putting down medical experiment dogs when there is no description of the lead character's investigation. One day her sister is dying and accuses the husband ....& BAM ....she shows up at the next victim with all her investigation done. Really?!?!?!
No! I don't have that kind of time to waste again. 17 HOURS ...OMG
Yes. He's awesome. He was the only reason I stuck with this drivel.
The animal toture and experimental lab descriptions of letting the monkeys burn alive on purpose. Horrible and totally unnecessary. A revamp on dialogue. At least 35-40% of useless time consuming droning on.
Next time make at least one character likable. The main character is useless, whiny, and is described as a rising star in the bureau when she sounds like she should have been fired from the get go.
Seemed like a long build up for a mediocre payoff. You'd have to really be in the mood for a slow building story. Dick Hill is amazing as always.
