Iron House was a really good read; however, the author has a little more research to do about Ford vs Pontiac.Several times, he mentions a "1965 Ford GTO". Pontiac - not Ford - had the GTO. Ford has had a Mustang GT, but I'm unsure whether this was available in '65.
This is a misrepresentation of fact that should have been caught by the editor.

Great story, but had language and a very dark story line. I'd still recommend it however. Just don't listen when kids are in the car. :)
I listen to books when I am at the gym.This book was great entertainment, a wonderful escape at the end of a day, and made me want to go to the gym so I could listen to it.

I like fiction that I suppose could actually happen given a certain set of cirmcumstances. This isn't it. This story is just too outrageous to believe under any circumstance. The protagonist suffers absolutely no consequences for his actions, (as neither do his cohorts) and lots of money solves every problem in the end. I am surprised it won so many rave reviews. The narrator read well as "Michael," but if he is going to do accents, he needs to practice more. I thought the character "Elena" was certainly from Russia or a Slavic country. Spain? Really? His southern accent was....passable. I wouldn't recommend using a credit on this book if you enjoy credible fiction.
Not a great story, not very well written, and what can you do when you have poor material, but read it poorly... barely got through the first 3 hours and gave up...
This book was extremely gruesome (Hannibal level of gruesome) and not believable. I only write reviews when something is fantastic or I want to warn people not to waste their money. This one is the latter category. John Hart has some good books but I would advise you to skip this one.
I enjoyed listening to this book, as I have all of John Hart's novels. He was able to take a very dark character and make him seem more human. The narrator was perfect for the book. I look forward to John Hart's next novel.
This was my first Hart book and I can now say that I have another author to ad to my favorite list. This story was fast paced, and kept you on the edge of your seat the entire ride. It is one of those stories that gets read in 1 sitting because you can't put it down or turn it off. I say this book would be a great purchase for anyone who likes a great story with alot of twists. I wish they would make a movie of this book, I loved it!!!!
This may appear again now and then.
Dear God: Please let this man write another book soon and please let me be here to listen to it. I can't say something like 'even his worst book is good' because I can't think of anything he's done that is worse than anything else.
Before I post this list I have to say that Sandford, Parker and MacDonald are EXTRA special.
Robert B. Parker lived in this space for me as did John D. MacDonald, Michael Connelly, Robert Crais, John Hart, Craig Johnson, John Lescroart, William Kent Krueger, Ridley Pearson ,and Jonathan Kellerman. Some others are really good but these guys have something special. If you are into mystery-thrillers I just gave you a back catalog I wish I could have...but I HAVE had it and it is an incredible treasure. I stopped going to libraries and swap places just so I can encourage these guys by sending them money. Please enjoy.
