Highly suspenseful, excellent attention to detail and a high degree of researched veracity
all the twists and turns...the authenticity of the voice and the narrator
He brings authenticity..he's good at using a number of voices in the book as there is conisderable amounts of dialog..he does it in a convincing but not over the top way

Pretty good. I like others better but it was good. The killer was pretty predictable but the ending was interesting.
Emma Whitestone and of course, John, if he would just shut up with the wisecracks.
Yes. He always does a good job. This was no different.
I do not like thse questions. They don't let me get to the heart of my true review of the book.
This is an excellent thriller mystery and Scott Brick nails the main character perfectly. Pretty good on the female voices also. John Corey's wisecracking is overdone to the extent of ridiculousness and very distracting, but since the author felt it needed to be there, Scott played it well.
The only thing I think was completely overdone was the language. I can see it applying in certain situations but not thru the whole book! Also the sexual detail and comments were a bit over the top. All of this did not help the story or the characters. It actually got in the way.
Another good book by by Nelson DeMille. The story line did drag on a bit at time, but was otherwise very enjoyable. Another great performance by Scott Brick. He is one of the best.
Reading is my greatest pleasure and I read for entertainment. Mystery, suspense and romance are my picks.
A great story with lots of suspense and action. I love a good, long book and although I enjoyed Plum Island, there were a few instances where I felt the details of some scenes went on and on. But it was still enjoyable and I have to say that I liked the main character, John Cory very much.
but try one of Nelson Demille's newer books, like the Panther.
The main character isn't such a misogynist jerk. He mellows out a lot more.
Tense great story
John Cory.. Smart tough and tender
Great story. Exciting ending. Tense to the end
Nelson DeMille is one of the best. I have listend to almost all his books
As far as detective stories go, this one is uninspired. I could not wrap my mind around the main charter. I did like him and never cared if he survived the story. That is never a good feeling when reading a book. His character was shallow and stereo typed. The story concept was good, but it would have been better in half the time.
Scott Brick did of fine job of narrating, but there is only so much you can do with a weak story line.
I read this book shortly after it was published. I didn't remember the story, but I remembered that I thought it was a good book. So I decided to listen to it. Good choice. DeMille could write a page-turning story, I knew. Scott Brick can tell his stories well, too.This is a good surprising mystery with an ending that makes you hope for a sequel.
A long time reading junky that has moved to audiobooks to continue the addiction despite the busy work and family life.
I saw more of these "John Corey" books coming out and wanted to jump on the train, but started here from the beginning. I'm glad I did. The story is great, the narration is great, and I'm excited to read more about John Corey. I don't think he'll take the place of Harry Bosch as my favorite bad "a" detective, but I think he'll be a good second place. He's tough, ballsy, and just grumpy enough to upset all the right people, and some of the wrong ones. A trait I feel a good detective would really have. If you like good detective novels with some action thrown in, then you'll like this book.
