The story was confusing and didn't make sense. Too much jumping around.
very good narration
Yes, I did learn a few things about torture
This was a great action packed book
He is an alpha male with depth.
He brings the characters to life/
This is my favorite audio book so far. It hooked me right from the start, and never slowed down. I have listened to it 5 times.
Yes! Nothing or no one is what they seem.
Yes. another Robert Crais book. I like this one more.
Hold on to your seats for a wild ride with Joe and Elvis...
THis book is a quick read and a good story - difficult to put it down...or turn off.
James Daniels is one of the best narrators I have heard. He changed his voice for each character but it was never irritating or false.
i will get more of Robert Crais's books.
Hi, I'm an alumi of NYU and I'm also huge into MMA. I love books I read a lot and review the stand outs. I'll give you guys the goods.
pike is a great charactor and it camptures the police mind set very well
Started the book on the way home from work and could not put it down, this my 3rd Crais book and have really like all three. Joe Pike and Elvis are great characters, plots are very good
Pike is the lead character in this "Elvis Cole" novel. Pike can by NO means can the lead - it's basically dreadful. The witty Elvis Cole has some redeeming value, but not much.
I don't particularly like James Daniels either. He sounds like bad "B Actor".
I have listed to 2 Crais novels and the other is MUCH better - Chasing Darkness
Chasing Darkness is recommended - This one is NOT!
This book is a great read until you reach the end and realize it is fatally flawed. There is an event which triggers the whole story, which is previewed in the publishers summary: "until out of nowhere a car appears, and with it the metal-on-metal explosion of a terrible accident."
This accident, which is the basis for the next 7.5 hours, doesn't make any sense. There was no reason for these two cars to be on the same street at the same time in the early morning. And this accident was the basis for everything afterward. I was entertained for the 8 hours, but in thinking about the plot, I realized I had wasted my time.
I don't want to give away too much of the plot for those of you who I assume have not read the book. Suffice it to say that it is a thoroughly entertaining book until you realize that it isn't just the literary equivalent of empty calories, which is usually okay with me, the totally implausible car accident which begins the story makes this, to continue the analogy, more like a mild case of food poisoning.
