I like an action/mystery book or movie to move along and not get hung up on details. If I could have edited this book, I would have cut out several chapters and had the central plot move more directly.
The good -
The bad -
shallowly developed characters
The ugly -
terrible narration. all the voices were the same and the man cannot do accents to save his life.
Over-read, as in Over-acted. The book was ok, but I truly struggled with Mr. Brick's, William Shatner-esque reading of it. I will not buy any more of the books read by this person. Did anyone listen to this reading before it was put out for sale?
I love to read. I never go anywhere without a book. My 'To Reads' are piled on my bed and in the bathroom. I listen in the drive to work.
This book is different to my usual taste in fiction. I enjoyed it never the less. It kept me engaged throughout, always wanting to know what was going to happen next. The ending caught me by surprise.

The characters and the story line kept my attention. I listen to many series and this one has a different twist which I liked. Of course Scott Brick is a wonderful narrator so he made the listen very enjoyable. I am looking forward to reading the entire series. I have a feeling it will only get better!
I loved it! Scott Brick gave a awesome reading. Brett Battles has done it again! I highly recommend this entire series you won't regret it!! ENJOY
Well, I'm sorry that I didn't discover this series sooner. Jonathan Quinn is a terrific character - and I'm surprised this character hasn't made the leap to the big screen. Although the dialogue is well constructed and witty, I love the things that the characters DO NOT say. I think this makes for much more realism and believability.
I recommend this series to other fans of the spy-thriller genre.
