This was my first and only Hurwitz. The action seemed jumpy and I felt no connection to the characters. If you're into surveillance, you may get a kick out of the plot. I was neither intrigued by the story line nor scared by the idea of it. Perhaps it was just too deep for me.
I greatly enjoyed "You're Next" by Hurwitz but found this story and the protagonist to be disappointing. A bit too much like watching a horror movie where the teenagers keep heading to the dark basement. Unwise, if not stupid, decision-making distracted from some interesting plot twists -- but I understand that the latter required some of the former.
Can't for the life of me figure out why this book got such great reviews from the critics. The plot made no sense to me - the book left me wondering, so what?
The central character wallows in dramatic self-pity, has no sense of humor, and deserves every bad thing that happens to him.
I will certainly never pick up another Gregg Hurwitz book.
Scott Brick's reading was the only redeeming feature of this audiobook. Even so, in consonance with the story, the reading is frantically paced, a little juiced.
This is described as a contemporary thriller, suspense novel. It's actually an endless and tedious complaint by an obnoxious character in a suspense story.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book it kept me on the edge of my seat. I finished it in two days. I want more from Gregg Hurwitz and of course Scott Brick.
I am an avid recorded book listener. I work at at elementary school, have 2 high schoolers and have very little time to sit and read. This is a great book fix for the perpetual motion in our lives we live these days.
The story, characters and narrator is a synergy that really works. This is one of my favorites.
Very good read. The author has some original twists in a genre where that isn't often easy. Although some of the plot is predictable, it isn't the predictable read that so many others are. Certainly worth the credit.
the premise was good but the telling was slow and repetitive.
Scott has performed better. His characters seemed similar in voice and too non emotional.
I'm a stay at home mom in southeastern KY. I LOVE audio books....especially ANYTHING by Nora Roberts/J.D. Robb!
Absolutely! Get ready for fantastically placed twists in the plot. Had to actually TRY to keep up with all of them. (And yes...I prefer that. Who wants to be able to predict every turn of a thriller?)
I am fairly new to Gregg Hurwitz and Scott Brick (listened to 5 books so far) and I'm very pleased with his performances. This particular book is my favorite so far. Great feeling in the emotions and definitely a talented and skilled narrator.
