Amazing perfomance by Scott Brick, who is now my favorite voice actor, with Dick Hill coming in a very close second. The story was very well done and very believable. I couldn't stop listening. Thankfully I drive for about 7 hours a day so it didn't take me long to finish the story. Gregg Hurwitz is now in my top five. Survivor was also very good.
When Mike was was able to drop the bomb on William
He can portray a child and woman in a way which Dick Hill just isn't able to. It's not that he sounds effeminate but there is something subtle and subdued in his voice which allows me to picture a woman in my mind as he is speaking. Dick Hill's voice just doesn't have the range or quality I suppose.
I hope anyone who enjoys reading books or listening to them tries this one. I grew up on Tom Clancy, Michael Chricton and John Grisham novels but haven't done much reading over the last 10 plus years until I got a smart phone and became an Audible memeber. My love of "reading" has kicked back into high gear and I can't wait for the next great book to come my way.
I would recommend this book, it is well written and the characters work together well, the writer keeps you wondering why the family is in danger almost right up to the end.
Scott Brick is a good narator and has the ability to bring the characters to life in your mind.
When Mike had to leave Cat at the foster home so she would be safe while he tried to find and stop the people out to kill them.
I wasn't too sure about this book at the beginning because it didn't make much sense why things were happenning, but once it got going it was very compelling.
The first half of this story had me following along very closely. Interesting main character, with a curios upbringing and a real life with real problems. Well written. I really wanted to know more about him, and what his background was that would bring him into so many problems.
The second half became more like every other mystery/crime story I have ever read. It had closure, but was a little dragged out, and I was glad when it was over, as it became somewhat predictable (if not boring) after the ending started to resolve itself.
Never slowed down. Kept me on the edge. Did not expect the ending.
Scott Brick is my new favorite reader. He did a great job on this book.
Ran by batteries down listening to this one.
Suspense, suspense suspense! A very twisted up plot kept me guessing till the end. I had never listened to anything by this author before - I had this one marked on my wish list for months but never committed to add it to my library until last time. After finishing this one, I added the rest of the Hurwitz books to my list. Well written, good characterization, suspenseful, page turner - draws you in... You won't be sorry.
This book got me interested from the first minute and had me hooked the entire story. So suspenseful, my stomach was raw nerves....and so heart-wrenching at times too. LOVED this book!
Loved Shep....he is such a simple man, but has so much under the surface.....so much more to him
Scott Brick brings the characters to life. Have listened to many novels narrated by him- he is amazing. He definitely can make you feel the characters emotions!
When Mike had to leave his daughter
This book was a very suspenseful, edge of your seat book. I thought the reasoning why the characters life was in such danger was a bit out of left field, but all in all a great thriller! Scott Brick ALWAYS brings it.....he is a terrific narrator!
This book was so engrossing, I couldn't stop listening! Sometimes I will fall asleep listening to a book. That didn't happen with this one. I couldn't even fall asleep when it was finished. I loved Hurwitz's characters, except for the ones I hated. The writing was excellent! It conveyed so much feeling of pathos and love and terror! I would love to read more from this author, but I don't know if my heart could stand it.
Scott Brick did a wonderful job reading the book! His portrayals were so convincing, and he was able to completely convey the emotions the author intended.

yes, in case I missed something
All of them
This was a great book, took a sick day off of work to finish it! I wish there was a Part Two! Great from start to end!
