This story has plenty of twists and turns. The characters are pretty believable despite some of the extreme situations they are put in. You cannot help but root for the main character(s), and the suspense will make you want to see the story through to the end.
While I am usually a sci-fi person, this was a great read!
You can't help but pull for Mike. From his past to the present, he is the underdog I love.
Yes. His soothing voice makes up for his inability to inflect or add much variety in with the different characters. The book was almost a perfect assignment for him.
YES...stayed up for 6 hours straight to finish it, and paid for it the next day. Well worth it.
This book kept me wanting more. A great story read by a great narrator. Scott Brick never disappoints.
Shep was my favorite character.
This is a truly captivating story and fabulous narration! My Audible library is pretty extensive but this author/narrator combo is at the top!
Why am I just hearing about Gregg Hurwitz? He's awesome - there's never a dull moment and the story is excellently written. 5 stars!
This is definitely worth reading/listening too. I could not turn it off, highly recommend it. It does have some gruesome creepy scenes..but they do add something to the story line.
I probably will listen to this book again, I was in such a rush to find out what happens next that I'm sure I missed some things.
I really liked when they finally got the safe open. I also liked when they pulled off the casinoheist and many others. it is such a good book and it really got my emotions stirred up. There were also some times when I just smiled.
Definetly Shep He just had a simple way about him that made you love him.
I couldn't wait to get back to the book every time i put in down.
Scott Brick is my absolute favorite male narrator and he did not dissapoint. He kept me on the edge of my seat the whole book.
Contrary to many other Audible listeners, I am not a fan of Scott Brick. His reading style and quavery voice annoy me, but I can deal with it if I really want to hear the book. This was a mediocre thriller, not bad, not the best I've read/listened. I found myself tuning out for long periods of time, then struggling to understand what happened later on the road. I did not feel the need to 'rewind' and listen to the missed parts. I'm left wondering if it's because Scott Brick was the narrator, or if the story just didn't keep me intrigued enough. I might pick this book up to read myself if I see it in the library, and give it another chance. In the meantime, I'll keep avoiding this narrator.
Umh, I think I would, well, maybe, well maybe not. I'm still grasping for a decision with this audiobook. Although I do mostly enjoy Scott Brick's narration's. Sometimes I feel it's either his reading or just what he has to read that seems to take sooooo long to get to the "meat and potatoes" of the story, I find myself "rewinding" through chapters, and saying to myself - "Self -What in the world is this book about" This would definitely be one of those - What????? I'm lost. There were so many characters, and back and forth, and will we ever get to the actual storyline. Whew, I'm tired just thinking about explaining it. Well, I'll just move on to my next audiobook...
Interesting....finally - ok, I get it now
Yes, I'm nervous though..
Yes, I think Tom Cruise and Charlize Theron would be a good collaboration.
A very well-written suspense book, the narrator was great, and probably one of my favorite audible listens so far. Great character development and the pace of the story was perfect. An edge of your seat listen for sure.

I remember liking Scott Brick more in other readings. It's odd, he did really well on the characterizations, but in the more narrative parts, he kept droning on with this weepy tone that detracted from the necessary or needed. I found myself relieved when he would go into character as the narrative voice really got painful.
Now the book, the writing and mostly the story, kept me listening. It's a slow burn kind of plot. It does get better as it progresses. The reasons and motives at the end were not shocking, or thrilling, but interesting. You get very interested in the characters and their story. That is the core value here.
The characters are almost laboriously developed, but I think a lot of the feeling of labor steamed more from the narration than other factors.
Would I recommend this book as a worthwhile (read) listen? Sure. The writing is above average for sure. It's Scott that kinda' let me down this time, but mostly in the narrative. Characters "voices" were fine. Less weepy narrative would have made the book 4~5 stars.
