Easy to follow on audible and a good performance of charecters by Ron McLarty, Always fast paced with lots of sub plots. A good read but much like all other Baldacci stories.
all other baldacci books
Bavid Baldacci has a lot of great ideas as to plots and setting for his works. But they all could be the same book.
This book was very good. I enjoyed reading it this second time around as much as I had the first time.
The torture scene and man hunt.
A good read.
a tale of two characters who end up teaming up to rid the world of an evil person, the third character in this story. It wasn't a particularly clever plot and I found myself wondering if I had read this before but there were enough dissimilarities to other books to keep me engaged
No, not really. It was predictable but interesting nonetheless
The museum where the characters viewed Goya's paintings
this was a good story for commuting to work...not intense so as to distract you.
Baldacci does it again with fast, smart, tactical details & colliding stories & details. First chapter or two and little slow to start ....then all takes off with a bang ..... Another good read🤓
I usually listen to David Baldacci's books, but they aren't the first book I buy when I'm choosing. This one shot Baldacci to the top of my list, however. He's clearly reached his form in this gripping tale of mystery and suspense. Highly recommended.
I was on my toes throughout the book!
The seduction of the old Nazi!
I also Ron's reading performance, easy to listen.
Have not read the print version... why would I waste my time listening & reading?
DB weaves a great story, and keeps it interesting throughout. McLarty is great on his books - always enjoyable.
Ron McLarty does espionage & thrillers so well. If he read the phone book and I would listen.
Enjoyable listening experience. I enjoyed this book.
Not unless I was desperate for something to read/listen to. This book had too many cringeworthy moments.
The genre is fine. Baldacci is just not a good writer.
As always, McLarty is an excellent narrator. His tonal quality and ability to change his voice just enough to let you know who is speaking without overacting make him my favorite. He does not disappoint here.
The story, however, is not Baldacci at his best. The story line is exciting, well-developed, and sufficiently intricate to make for an enjoyable "read". However, Baldacci seems to have gotten a bit lazy with this one. At too many points within the story line, Baldacci provides too much technical information and character background from a third-person omniscient perspective. I found these breaks from the otherwise compelling story line to be too lengthy and too frequent. I would have much preferred to learn this background information from the characters themselves where possible or in an abbreviated form where not possible, as Baldacci has done in most of his other works. I will not give up on Baldacci (yet), as I have read or listened to almost all of his other works, and I have not found this to be a problem with the others.
older listener -- enjoys books rather than california traffic. enjoys running while listening -- or is it the other way around?
a human superhero
finally somebody breathed some humanity into these guys that cannot be killed; always bed the girl; never lose; and never guess wrong... its about time!
