There is no connection to the characters in the book
It would start to have something happen and then the story line was just not interesting
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 listen to books to be entertained... my favorite genre is a "Legal Thriller" I have actually been a member since 2001. 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.
I'm more of a fantasy reader/listener, but I thoroughly enjoyed this after getting through the first part. I found myself captivated with the story action at least twice. I would recommend it.
Anyone who like daytime soap operas
Didn't have one.
George G, the best.
Yes, I could stop listening.
I am an eBay seller who listens to approx. a book a day while taking & editing photos of my items. I love a good suspenseful mystery!
I once read a review where the reviewer stated that readers either love or hate Scott Brick and this is so true! I have found I am one who can not stand Scott Brick! I have tried and tried and tried but there's no getting past it. Even knowing this I sometimes think if a book is a good enough deal that maybe I can get past the voice and just hear the story but it never fails if SB is reading the story I hate it!
All that said this story is pretty bad and I'm not sure that SB's voice made it worse. The whole thing is unbelievable and full of some of the most annoying and ridiculously unbelievable scenarios every printed. I hate stupid characters. I hate when characters make decisions in books that are so bad the writer feels the need to make the character validate the decision with sentences like 'I don't know why I did xyz but I just did'....really?!! WTF!
Save your money, time and energy and buy anything but this book!
