The characters were quite predictable albeit likeable. I hope Brad Meltzer returns to the writing found in his earlier books. This one just didn't make me happy.
I kept waiting for this one to get good and it never did. The plot was weak and the narrator made it worse, I think. Every sentence was spoken with suspense, but there wasn't anything suspensful. Just a weird boring plot. Wasn't the worst book I've ever listened to, but I wouldn't recommend it.
Inner circle for me showed great promise. The end did not justify the means unfortunately.
Scott Brick is wonderful as always.
I found the idea of historical materials from the national archives being necessary for solving a modern presidential mystery very interesting. Even after my husband listened to the book and gave it a thumbs down, I was willing to assume his occasional bad taste was getting in the way. :) Too bad he was right on.
Too many unnecessary suspenseful twists that lead nowhere, no resolution for some of the characters and situations that actually WERE interesting, weak secret for all the intrigue, and lame main character. I want to read about Iris and how her life has probably gotten much more interesting since she dumped Beecher.
This was the audio version of the book I could not put down. Scott Brick did a wonderful job and had me wanting more!
2+ hours into this audio book and, I'm sorry to say, I'm bored. The story is very slow and full of "who cares" descriptive and detailed information.
I'm glad I was alone when I listened to this book because it was soooo drawn out and soooo jumbled that I involuntarily screamed out loud in frustration. Geez! This author can talk a scene to death. Narrator (who is usually okay) didn't help with his monotonous delivery.
audible would not send me the ending ,then sent me a coupon that didn't work
