The narrator keeps your attention & the storyline is presented in a logical sequence. I am not familiar with this author, but i will look for more books ftom him.

Although I loved Scott Brick's performance and Gregg Hurwitz' concept, I had a dislike that the FBI and LA PD we're painted as unable to aid and left protagonist dangling in extraordinary large gaps of illogical plot thinking. The protagonist walks blindly into equally illogical situations that no 8th grader would stumble. Crime tech and modern CSI would blow the tissue plot, but...
the wounded warrior concept is priceless with an amazing layered personal story that holds you until the inevitable ending.
This was not for me. Expected action got drama trying to be a tear jerker
After the first ten minutes the story finished what the synopsis had described and I thought " what could possibly fill the next 11 hours?" Wow the story twisted and turned! I am so amazed by the tone of the narrator too. He was absolutely flawless in capturing the mood of the story. I will look for other books he narrates as well. Very well done.
Military, Trauma, Illness.
That he fights a little for his family, even when they gave up on him.
Main Character Character.
When is okay to give up.
I knew what was going to happen. I would have loved a better ending .
This is my first Gregg Hurwitz read, but it will not be my last. This is a fast paced, action thriller with an incredible introductory scene, outstanding character development, and explosive ending. The narration by Scott Brick is, as would be expected, superb. The only drawback is the incredible Seal Team 6 commando type performance of the main character despite years out of the Army, average military training, and one combat tour in the Middle East. So . . . a thiller with a dose of science fiction thrown in.If you are a Jason Bourne fan, you'll love "The Survivor".
FIRST...let me say that Scott Brick is one EXTREMELY talented narrator! I always love to see his name attached to a book because I know it has to be a 4-5 star rating. With his help, all the characters stand up straight from the pages of a book. This book captured my attention from the very first words and absolutely HELD my focus throughout...never wavering. I haven't listen to many of Gregg Hurwitz's books because the reviews don't measure up to those of other authors. But after listening to this book in particular, I would have to say that although some of his books miss the mark...this one is spot on! THUS...5 STARS FOR ME!!! I truly couldn't stop listening. Even though I have many books in my library that I haven't listened to yet, I just purchased "You're Next" by G. Hurwitz. With a 3018 rating of 4.1, I'm expecting a great listen! Not to mention Scott Brick is a bonus!
So the moral to this story...don't let lower ratings of other Gregg Hurwitz's books stop you from spending your credit on this one. IT'S A WINNER! IT'S DIFFERENT! IT TOUCHES THE HEART!
a humble, seeking, loudmouth, Jesus lover, and sometimes heretic explores his questions, concerns, and varied interests through books.
This book was an excellent fast paced novel. I enjoyed the dynamics and the internal dialog/struggles of the characters.
Scott Brick nailed it as usual!
