I enjoy stories and films about aviation and this one didn't disappoint. Great story.
It kept me listening. I tend to listen to books at night on my IPAD when I'm trying to fall asleep. This book didn't help me sleep because it kept my interest from start to finish.
The lawyers for the insurance defendants were brilliant.
It didn't make me laugh or cry. What it did do was hold my interest for periods longer than I care to admit.
An absolutely excellent read for anyone that has an interest in Aviation. Highly recommended.
My passion has always been learning about history, but only lately as I am in my 60's have found the time to read, follow history's account
Very well researched book and great story, enjoyed it and couldn't put it down.
I will look for more books written by this author.
The narrator was excellent.
I hate books where the author lets the reader know that the protagonist knows things of importance, but doesn't reveal those facts to the reader. Basically the worst kind of whodunit writing gimmick available. The "great reveals" of the book is full of those.
Also some things pressed my ability of suspension of belief beyond all limits. Mainly (important) item finding at the crash site and believable character behavior were off at times.
On the plus side the facts in the book rings true, both the technical helicopter stuff and the law/trial stuff. The author obviously knows his stuff.
I will probably not read any other books by Huston. His writing "tactics" put me off. It may have made the final hour of the book more fun, but all in all I felt insulted.
Narration was OK. Really only two characters aside from the protagonist had distinguishable voices. Opposing lead lawyer (sneering and dishonest) and the defense metallurgist (geriatric asthmatic). Still - narration was unobtrusive, which is all I ask.
While the story was somewhat predictable, it was nonetheless captivating as it unfolded. When I first started the book I was tempted to send it back. Just couldn't get past the narrator's high, whiny voice; most noticeable when he attempted to do a female character as they all sounded like old biddies. I did eventually get into the book enough that I could overlook the narrator and, to my surprise, he seemed to get better as the characters developed.
Very, very reluctantly.
Yes, definitely hear a preview before buying

Excellent story, completely believable. Best narrator I have listened to in a while. Book would appeal to mystery/espionage lovers as well as legal thriller readers.
I found this to be an excellent story. The further into it the more riveting it became. It has moments where I actually felt myself tense up and moments where I laughed out loud.
I enjoy this narrator too. He did one other audio book that I have listened to.
