This was my first listen of David Baldacci and I really enjoyed it.
Puller is an interesting character and I would like to listen to more of his story.
The narration is superb. I was a bit hesitant about listening to 2 different narrators however it was seamless and works much better than I imagined. The background music also worked really well to add to the suspense.
In the upper third
Very complex and compelling plot
Like all good mysteries the clues were there if you were sharp. Main character has just enough "Dirty Harry" in him to make him dangerous.
This novel is among my top 20 favorites. I will probably listen more than once.
John Puller is a character I'm looking forward to in future novels. He has a strong resemblance to my favorite Lee Child's Jack Reacher.
This was my first and enjoyed the 2 narrators very much. ( 2 narrators is also a first for me).
Secrets in West Virginia.
Loved the narrator and the different voices used, the plot kept me in suspense and wanting to hear more - great !
This is an exciting, well paced story, one that never lagged or had a dull moment. The main character, Puller, is impressive and appealing, though sometimes almost too perfect. The supporting characters are realistic and always interesting. The plot was suspenseful and the ending for the most part was satisfying. I was anxious to get to the end of the story so that all would be revealed. Yet I was sorry when the book was over! As for the few negatives: It did seem odd that the government would send Puller in solo to investigate the ominous events in Drake, West Virginia. The author's explanations for Puller's continuing lack of backup didn't entirely work for me, especially at the climax of the story, when additional expert assistance clearly would have been provided if the scenario had been real. The narrators were both excellent, except that Ron McLarty sounds a bit further along in years than the Puller character should. McLarty is a talented actor and narrator. I liked his narration except for the audible age discrepancy.
