Writing is actually really good and the deliverance of the narrator matches in quality. Give this one a go. You might be surprised as well.
Extremely "taut" and a complete thrill ride!
Great character voices...but Shep stands alone!
I find new authors all the time by following what Scott Brick reads! There is nobody better....no matter who the author is.... or what the story is about.
Best so far!
This book sucked me in slowly, but once it had me, it didn't let go! This book was well plotted, well written, and engaging as heck! Edge of your seat excitement and suspense.
A do not miss book. Can not recommend this one enough.
I'm an avid reader who now listens to books on tape. I'm a bit late to the game but enjoying the hands free reading.
Yes, I'll listen to it again in 6 months.
Once Mike's old life comes back to grab him. Really, every part of the story was excellent.
Good serious tone.
This is the best book I've listened to so far as a member for only four months.
I am waiting patiently for the best book on earth!!
I did not like all the liberal politics in the story! If I wanted to read a book on politics I would have read one!
Painful in a good way. I had a relationship with these characters and now I miss them.
Shep. His loyalty.
Can't wait to read another of Gregg Hurwitz's novels.
I am being intentionally vague because I hate placing a spoiler in a review.
I had some issues with this story. It felt unfinished to me, and some of the plot mechanisms used were unnecessary or ill suited to their intended purpose. There are characters that go under developed but we expect them to play a big role in the story, and the author does little to reconcile that.
The story moves along like a slow burning match you held too long and eventually burns you, but only because you forgot you were holding it.
Just know it is a slightly above mediocre effort that is not terrible, but not great.
The story moved so slowly that it was almost painful to listen to. The narrator did a good job but the story just fell short.
The hero and his family are applealing characters but far too shallow to care about. I couldn't wait for the book to end.
All of them.
This is a great book and intense from the beginning. It is not the kind of book I normally listen to and I found myself wishing I hadn't gotten it but I got hooked and had to hear the whole thing. The performance is masterful. You will not be disappointed if you like suspense and you like your stories on the rough side.
not knowing why the bad guys were after Mike and his family until the 1/4 of the book
Kat, Mike's daughter
Mike leaving his daughter at the foster mom's home---so sad
I would have loved to but didn't have the the time
Wow, this was a great book! This is the first book I have read by Hurwitz and I will be adding more of his books to my "to be read" list. A great thriller with a lot of excitement and great characters. You knew right away who were the good guys (Mike Windgate and his family)and who were the bad guys but not until the last quarter of the book do you find out why the bad guys are are after Mike and his family. And the bad guys are very evil. This was a great read (or audio book as I listened to it) that is what we all look for in a thriller.
