Gregg Hurwitz wrote a great novel. I'd have to say this book is probably in my top five favorites. The characters were very well developed. The story kept me on the edge of my seat and I never wanted to stop listening. Scott Brick as always brought the characters to life. If you're a fan of thrillers, then you definitely don't want to miss this book.
This is my granddaughter's picture! She is my love.
I really dislike fiction that tries to put in the author's opinion into the pages. This is about a man ready to jump from a tall building. He is a former soldier with PTSD, but this isn't about PTSD. Many books have been written about soldiers with PTSD and they describe the terrible situation of the soldier. That is fine, but if I want to hear a lecture about that problem, I would read about the problem. This book is not a book about PTSD, it is about a hero, a soldier that acts without thinking of the consequences. A good man gets caught up in something more than just countries fighting. Part of the story seem just a little over the top, but mostly, this book kept my attention until the end. And that is a good thing.
book starts off smooth and transitions nicely into the plot. characters where interesting and had good Twists. overall a good thought provoking ending in my opinion.
I know that Mr Bricks' narration always seems melodramatic to me. But the stories seem like good ones, so I buy them hoping I'll change my mind but never really enjoy it. This one, I couldn't finish. But if you like his style (and most do apparently) you'll probably like it. I guess I'm only writing for those like me who buy books hoping that the next experience w/this narrator will be better. It won't - but I bet I keep trying b/c the stories are good.
The violence was too much for me. Too much, too descriptive, too sadistic
Scott Brick's performance was worthy of an Oscar. I finished listening only because his reading was so good.
I was disappointed as I think the basic story had the potential for a really good read (listen) if the violence was not so sadistic, detailed, and the overriding theme.
Neither predictable nor unpredictable; neatly in between. Riddled with sadness and parenthood angst. Characters were all well drawn, and just slightly far fetched; the story detailed enough that it was possible to overlook that while listening.
How it was flopping back and forth, reader did not use any pronunciations to accent the story.
Ending was lame.
