Hello, my name is Teresa and I'm an addict.
Enjoyable series, this one had some holes in the mystery and obvious mistakes in the writing, but it is a very enjoyable addition. The writing is also very descriptive and I can picture many of the scenes in my mind as clear as if I were there, the sounds and smells are very vivid. Pendergast seems to have quite an effect on most of the populace and I always enjoy how they all react to him. I still like the first two books best but I have found that my local library has the remaining series on audio and I am planning on finishing it. I always get a kick out of an author having characters read their own books in their story.
Yes, but mostly for the Special Agent Pendergast fans.
Great performance. Mr. Brick is an excellent narrator that probably intrigued me to listen to the complete story - though I didn't care as much for this book as the others in this series.
No. The book was well written - just didn't care for the story. (A bit much on the sickening side as far as the villain and acts committed .)
Yes, it kept me wondering what was going to happen next.
Agent Pendergast. He was alway calm and ready for action.
The ending was not at all what I thought it would be.
Yes, just to be sure I didn't miss anything
Yes I try to listen to as many by Scott Brick's that I can. This was great I could just see what everyone looked like
I loved this and I love listening to to Scott Brick.
I've read a number of Pendergast books, this one doesn't make the grade. Pendergast is too cool for school. There is a limit to how totally amazing a hero can be, at least if he is not wearing a red cape. The book was not without it's good points, the first half had me guessing and wondering. But it took an unfortunate, sharp left turn into the compost heap about halfway through. It started to get predictable, Pendergast did too many amazing things, and i set my i pod to double speed.
The whole story narrated by Scott Brick is amazing. You will keep guessing and get intrigued through the story. And like I said on the review title, Pendergast is an one of a kind character. This is my first book on the series and it really caught me. I'm reading Brimstone now and enjoying every chapter.
I love crime audio books, normally I am obsessed with the Roy Grace series by Peter James, I have tried others but never as good as Peter James. This however, was an excellent story. I really enjoyed it
As with many books it doesn't really heat up until about half way through, but it was thoroughly engaging and unlike some books which just conclude within about two minutes and leave you feeling ripped off, this has a well put together and well explained conclusion.
No, I haven't but will now look them up
I would thoroughly suggest this to others.
The book started quickly and kept the excitement level up. Agent Pendergast is a very interesting character and his personality makes the book very enjoyable to listen to.
Yes, the pace was quick. The evil nature of the murderer kept the tension level at a high pitch.
Do not want to give anything away, but there were a lot of great scenes.
Not too much, but I pulled into the story.
