Having been trained at plum island it was great to be living in the story as it was being told. Awesome and engaging plot. Kept me interested until the end!
No, but it's close
John. He's a sexist brat, but he is smart, clever and outwits the bad guys.
Yes. This is one of his best.
This story has it all: complex plot, mystery, red herrings, interesting characters, snappy dialogue (DeMille is a master of dialogue), action, humor, and sort-of romance. I have read it numerous times and will listen to it again. This novel really is brilliant.
It read like a "super hero" yarn...way too many impossible, and improbable near-death experiences.
I enjoyed his other books and was ready to enjoy this one. Boring and predictable!
Nelson DeMille is a great writer....this was just not, in my opinion, a very good book.
We know the books are great,; I mean I don't think that Mr. DeMille can write a boring book. The performance was wonderfully executed. I enjoyed it.
I thought this would be an action book but a solid third of this book is the ruminations of the main character. It is boring and repititious. The main character is a smart aleck and Scott Brick rolls over the jokes like a steam roller. His style has become too self aware and pedantic. I listened to him on other books several years ago and, while not my favorite reader, he did manage to impart some enthusiasm in his reading. That did not happen with this book so a teduois book became almost unbearable.
Retired high school English teacher. I liked and worked with the at-risk student. Interested in about everything, but I love a good story.
This is one of Nelson De Mille's convoluted mysteries that's fun to read. Since my eyesight has deteriorated, I listen to a great many books. Scott Brick has become too used to the cadences of De Mille's writing so the books are sounding alike. On the other hand, maybe I need to work a bit harder and actually read a couple of them to find out if the fault is in the author.
