If you liked Power Play, you will like this book. While I would not say this was his best - I think Paranoia was my favorite - the main character Nick Heller is fun to follow and this is fairly entertaining. There are a few twists, but they are telegraphed early and were easy to predict. Holter Grahm did his usual excellent job of reading which always adds to my enjoyment of the book. Overall, I was glad I spent the credit and would recommend it.
I am a huge Joseph Finder fan, and have read all of his books. This latest one, with my favorite character Nick Heller is as full of suspense and intrigue as any of his books. He keeps you on the edge of your seat until the very end. The story is full of surprises and connections between people we grow to love and care about. I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves a good suspenseful mystery.
A very good book that you will enjoy and find it holds your interest. I could recommend it to all ages.
It is worth your time and money.
Most of the story line is completely unbelievable. Yes, it's fiction but come on. Someone is going to bury someone 10 feet under ground and keep them alive??? Holter Graham is just about as hard to listen to as Scott Brick...that sarcasm in the voice thing that is hard to explain but completely annoying. I'm halfway through it now so I'll suffer through to the end.
I have always liked Joseph Finder before but in this book he included offensive and disturbing torture and killing methods that are nothing more than gratuitous violence. In addition, many of the story lines defy reality, and do not make sense in the real world. I had to stop mid book and will not go back to it. I hope he will return to his more realistic and less graphically violent story-telling. Otherwise, I will not read him again.
Do you remember how your grandfather reacted when he found out what the internet can do? This is what happens when he writes a book.
This is the first book of Finder I have listened to. It had me gripped from when I first listened to the demo to the end of the book. Narrator Holter Graham does an excellent job and makes listening to this book a must read again. If you like mystery, suspense and detective action, this is a good buy.
I was a little apprehensive because Audible had it on sale for under $10. Once I started listening, I was pleasantly surprised and couldn’t put it down. The narrator does a great job. You won’t be disappointed.
Mystery lover from waaaay back when.... Especially love those dark police/detective procedurals and the comic caper. I'm pretty tough as a reviewer. Writing must be smart and well-edited. Plots must be credible and a bit of twistiness and surprises are always welcome. Favorite authors [partial list]: Donald Westlake, Tana French, David Rosenfelt, Ruth Rendell, Ed McBain,
possibly--but I'd read the reviews carefully. This moved too slowly.
Book contains scenes of a person buried alive--if you are claustrophobic or averse to this type of plot, avoid the book. Also, the author seems to think that young teenage women are not technology savvy--a ridiculous assumption in this day and age! He even has one of the characters voice that opinion!
