hopefully this short story will be the beginning of some 'prequel' novels involving demille's character 'john corey.' if this author was testing the waters for this purpose, it gets my vote.
I really enjoyed this one, as a huge Demille fan, I do find sometimes he goes on and on, this one is so fast passed. Classic
This was nice short story. The bad guys were predictable but it was good to see Cory in action because it's been a while. Retrospectives on his police career are also nice. Scott Brick is one of the finest narrators in the trade and it makes the book that more enjoyable because of his narration.
I don't think one has the right to tinker with an author's work. Take it or leave it as it is.
Yes I have and I always enjoy him. One of the best in the business.
No. But a chuckle every now and then.
you get a taste of John Corey and the delights in store with the rest of the series.
I am rarely seen without my headphones on and my iPod clipped on my waist. I love my books.
Entertaining short story...
I love John Corey I am glad that there will be another one coming out next year. Looking forward to it.
DeMille writes great novels more than 90 per cent of the time. This short story does not give this author time to really develop his characters and doesn't permit the reader to fully enjoy the talents of Nelson DeMille as a novelist.
Also ...not a review. I'm sure I'll love the story. But I have downloaded the file to my 2 devices (old). One is an original Ipod Shuffle. The other an old black Phillips mp3. On both devices I can see the code appear on the device when opened on my PC...but neither produce audio when played. The Phillips device gives the message "file not compatible" Maybe I have to buy a newer mp3 or iphone?
I'm glad it's only $4.95. But I'm annoyed that I can't get the story...I am a huge fan of Nelson...I served in the NZ Infantry in Vietnam the same year he did his tour, so I can relate to his stories like "word of honor" and "Up Country".
But maybe at age 66 this new-fangled audio book thingee is too advanced for old grunts.
Maybe one of you young techo nerds out there can suggest a solution for me?
Loved it. I mean I can't wait for The panther which has Corey back, and Scott Brick does a good job with him. I have read all the Corey books and was really upset when I thought they were all done so this has given me somthing to look forward to. I admit that Demille's other books are nice but nothing entertaining as much as Corey
No, this book, even though it is a short story, did not live up to the name of the author nor did it do justice to the character of John Corey. I have read almost every book of DeMille's and particularly enjoy the John Corey series. This seemed to be an afterthought.
Write it as a full length novel which would give time for the personality of John Corey to expand and give a wonderful writer such as DeMille time to develop the background needed for this piece.
Brick is a great performer and I feel that what I did enjoy of the story was the performance of Brick.
I have bought 80 books YTD from Audible.com. I have not listened to one bad book by DeMille. I am listening to MAYDAY by DeMille now and it scares the crap out of me. It reminds me of that flight 700, I think it was &00 that went down in the Atlantic after the Navy shot it down accidentally then covered it up.Government cover-ups!!! NOTHING NEW THERE.
Detective like always in this series
Yes! Brick does a fine job in most of his work, although when he has to perform or act like a "whiny guy" it doesn't suit him. He sounds like a "bitch." It like George Goodell is the only guy to read for Randy Wayne White and Ron McClarty for the author, I forget his name, maybe Silva, but the main character was an ex spook who lives in the cemetary across from the White I mean Black house.
Whoever read Lynsey Boxer's character in Patterson's latest book was mediocre at best. The other woman is better. I know every narrator. I have what people have told me is a "tonographic memory". I never forget a voice, ever! I have even been tested. i use to be able to tell anyone where somebody was born and grew up down to a five zipcode range, anywhere in the country. It was a hobby for me.
You will think I am insane for saying this, but I will bet anyone $100,000 that Brad Pitt is Robert Redford illigitamate son. I can tell by his voice. Anyone else who has intelligence training in facial recognition or behavior sciences with a specialty in in recognition will agree with me if they take fifteen minutes and compare their facial movements, ie., lip movement, cheek movements, leg stances etc. I bet $100,000. I know I'm correct.
Also, the "guy" who narrates the low testosterone commercials on tv for that "egomaniac neurosurgeon, Jacob jewenstein, from Hopkins, or whatever the asshole's name is, the narrator is a biological relative of former governor Mike Huckabee.
Gotta go for now.
Yeah! I know youwill think I'm a nut but check out what I said. You will see I'm correct.
