Well thought out plot, this is the first Ben Coes book I've read. I'll certainly be back for more. Coes is every bit as capable as Vince Flynn or Brad Thor. There are a few errors in the performance i.e. being chased by a Van in one paragraph and a Sedan in the next, but those distractions are minor. Hermann is an excellent narrator, I love the Scottish accent.
Was a bit overly dramatic reading some of Dewey, Liked the narrator of Coes's next book better.
This is a beginning of a really great character. This is the first book of a new series that even though might seem slow in the beginning, it is really an incredible book to listen to. I really really recommend listening to this book and the following in the series.
The story went deeper then most. There were side stories and knowable characters that were easy to like
I rarely have time to sit and read a book anymore, audio books fit my lifestyle better.
Right up there with Mitch Rapp
Very good narrator that can keep the listener engaged.
THe climbing of the bluff in the rain and then the descent.
Enjoyed Ben Coes book very much. Listened to it with 3 friends on a road trip and all agreed. This new writer is very engaging and if you are a Flynn or Thor fan, give Coes a try.
Kept the listeners guessing and moved along at a good pace.
Did a good job with all the main characters.
No, breaks are good with unabridged.
You are the sum of what you read!
I was very disappointed. The character was undeveloped and there was too much detail for things that were unimportant to the story and not enough detail regarding that which was very important.
I listened to this book second after listening to the book that continues in the series "Coupe De'etat" Although this would have made a few things a bit more clear in the second book they work just as well out of order.
The book was really very intersting with terriost attacks unlike any you'd ever have considred in the past. A very complex terriost leader who is able to amass great fortune to basically fund some of the most damaging attacks that have long reaching effects on our economy and energy.
I only have two complaints. One is that from ime to time the author would go into such detail about the finance and tracking different strings of finance that it would bog down the story when I was wanting it to get back to the action. This was also down to some extent explaning different aspects of energy. By the second book he seemed to break away from giving way too much information from time to time.
The second thing that really buged me because I heard the second book first...Was the damn Irish accent the reader gave to Jessica who is a major figure in both books. She was supposed to be head of the terriorst devision of the FBI but I never figured how some Irish transplant would end up with a high level position in the FBI.....By the second book she has no accent.....That's why it was so annoying to hear in this book.
All in all a damn interesting book that really helps eat jup a lot of miles going down the road....
The reader was excellent and the story is very possible even though the way it happens is highly unlikely
an action book but holds interest more than most
getting the evil people
no but looked forward to the next part
looking foreward to the next in the series
Yes. The book develops characters that are ideal for sequels.
This is most like Gray Man novels.
Peter Hermann nearly put me to sleep in the first chapters, but the timbre of his voice heightens with the action.
No. This is an audiobook to listen to in increments going to and from work.
The only downside is that there is a little too much detail.
