With twinges of Ian Fleming, Sherlock Holmes, and a whiff of Odd Thomas, this series continues to hold my interest. Some of the plotting felt forced, as seems to be typical of these authors. But the prose is tight, and there's plenty of action.
I love to be scared, does anyone write anything scary anymore? Maybe I have just become numb.
Only if they had read the first book (or listened to in this case).
Yes, unlike a lot of authors out there, the plots and twists that Preston & Child put in were a surprise, and pleasant ones at that
The chainsaw fight
No, I was just entertained all the way through
I just finished this and am downloading the next book while writing this review. Can't wait.
Like so many other readers, I am a huge fan of these guys and was shocked as in mega-disappointed by this story. In fact, it was so painfully bad, I stopped half-way through to euthanize the negativity. The story is lame and oh-so predictable, the writing is equivalent to that of a bad high school student and the reader is one of the worst I have ever suffered through - which is probably part of my strong distaste for this audiobook. Scott Brick - fabulous - this guy - please don't use him for another one of your stories - straight to the literary cemetery.
His voice, reading style, his personality - all awfully distracting (from a lousy story, anyway)
Nada, bupkis, nope - really BAD!
Save your mulla - there is so much better stuff out there.
I LOVED the Pendergast series & I was disappointed that it was wrapping up but I am hoping that Gideon Crew will be able to fill the void! So far so good.
A more interesting reveal of the plot, more twists.
some of the voices had an off tone to my ear.
the two guys eating diner scene. It was like on the verge of bromance.
I like almost all of Preston and Child's other books. This one was a dud.
