This book was like biting into a nice piece of steak chewing, enjoying, and have to spit it out.
This book kept my attention and I was excited for a dramatic unthinkable ending and got nothing. It was just over. There were so many questions left unanswered and it ended.
After investing so much time listening I felt a little ripped off. No, I felt a lot ripped off.
I would have given 5 stars without thinking over it, but then i listened to the end of the book. It was really disappointing. And when i say disappointing then i mean it. I thought a lot about the possible ending of this book during i listened to it, i came up with the wildest stories: maybe most of John Coreys friends actually were involved in the conspiracy or the witnesses were payed a fortune to lie to him or .... Anyway, a lot of possible endings came into my mind and then i listened to the actual end of the story. I simply can't believe it. Because of the end 2 stars - and that only because of the very good first 98% of the book.
I have been listening to audio books for 20 years and this is by far one of the worst books ever. The language is horrible (this should be rated R) and after 4 hrs of listening I was still waiting for "something" to happen. Do not waste your money!
John Corey is the best detective/comic wit of any of this genre. I actually had to catch myself from laughing out loud on the airplane. My neighbor wanted to know what I was listening to so there's probably another fan out there. While the ending was a bit disjointed, I can't wait until the next Corey based DeMille novel.
I finished this title last week. I still long for the tension and involvement this book created. Great listen. My first DeMille was Lions Game, but this may have been better.
You will learn all about TWA 800 and experience a rare treat. This is a novel partly based on real events. Not just any novel but one written by a master and read by another.
I enjoyed this book. It held my attention to the very end.
May I also recommend Up Country. I wish I had not already read it so I could listen to it.
Fast moving and unpredictable. It will have you in knots waiting for the ending, which is nothing like you would expect. DeMille hits a home run.
This is the first Nelson DeMille book I?ve read. The story and narrating by Scott Brick were outstanding. However, after investing so much time in listening, I was disappointed by not having true closure to the story after finishing the book.
