Berenson continues to develop characters, write smart, on target dialogue, and craft interesting plot twists despite heroics that more than strain credulity. I like the sense of striving for a moral center in the face of relevant ethical complexity, what I think are authentic descriptions of cultures and places, and challenging some conventional thinking here in the US of A.
This is a great story with a lot of suspense. Goerge Guidall is awesome as always. Great Listen!! I highly recommend not only this book but the series as a whole. You will not be disappointed.
Another great story. I was bummed when I finished this one. Hope the author is coming up with more John Wells adventures.
Yes, as long as Guidall is Narrating it!
Yes, Kept me interested through out
Everything! One of the best. A good narrator can make or break a book!!!
Berenson is a wonderful writer, and Guidall is a gifted storyteller. A great combination.
This is my second Berenson book. He's an excellent writer. Very knowledgable, and weaves an excellent tale. And George Guidall is simply the best. Totally at ease, completely consistent. I have made multiple purchases over the years just to listen to him read. This is a great pairing and gets two thumbs up from me.
Yet another book in the John Wells series. Very good, as are all Alex Berenson's books. George Guidall does a fantastic job narrating, as always.
My only complaint is that the ending came too fast. When you get to the epilogue, there is still a lot of story left, but it feels like the author just decided to end the story. There really could have been a couple of more chapters to wrap things up nicely, instead of just dropping the story line.
Edge of Seat
I would compare to Silva's or Thor's books
I have five authors that I cannot wait for their books every year and Berenson is one. I enjoy them greatly. The only thing I hate is the book is over and I have to wait another year.
Long commutes have turned me into a dedicated Audible fan. Looking at my stats I can't believe I have 825 titles in my Library.
George Guidall gives his usual excellent performance. I'm giving it 4 stars overall for a good story but this series is getting just a little too formulaic John Wells is a killer, he hunts other killers, gets help from retired CIA honcho who uncovers clues a little too easily; John Wells finds killers; and kills killers. (Is that a spoiler?) People get pissed off in the process. End of story. All very predictable.
Alex, time to find a new story line.
Not sure if it was just me but it was not thrilling. I did not finish the book. I seemed to struggle through for a couple more hours in Part 2 but just gave up.
