It ranks in the top 10%. There was lots of action, plenty of expertise.However, there wasn't a lot of empathy for the innocent victims. Still, it rates high.
Charles. I really like cool old guys who remain calm in terrifying, seemingly hopeless situations. And Spence turned out to not be such a wuss after all.
First one of theirs. But the voices were very well done. I am not sure why there needed to be two men, but it was easy to listen to and the readings were authentic.
Yes, and I did.
It may be media, but I get the feeling that New Yorkers are prouder and more protective of their PD than are other folk. The book made me proud to be one.
It kept you on the edge of your seat wondering what will happen next
Overall great book and would highly recommend.
I am a 65-year-old psychologist, married for 25 years, with two sons who are 25 and 22. I love reviewing the books and the feedback I get.
According to his website, Mr. Patterson, along with his "collaborators," has written 97 novels since 1976. 97! 97! How can this be? Well, billions of people like McDonald's. This guy must be the master of the NYT best sellers list. Actually, I was only vaguely familiar with his name, as you see it in airport bookstores, etc. And, to tell you the truth, I only bought the book because Edoardo Balerini narrates about half of it. It's not that I will buy anything Mr. Balerini narrates, but it's close. The plot of this one involves a serial killer, of course, let loose out of a psychiatric facility in NYC, who then acts out the plot of his "book" by killing several famous Hollywood figures in grisly and ingenious ways. Mr. Patterson sure knows how to write a pageturner, which is the name of one of his production companies. Anyway, the hero is of course handsome, dashing and brave, and his partner is probably the most beautiful woman in the known universe. And they have a "history" together. They work in the ultra-elite NYPD Red Squad, assigned to only the most publicity-grabbing murders in NYC. The villain is completely nuts, as is his girlfriend, who also has the most beautiful body that HE has ever seen. Lord. They create maximum havoc and outwit the cops, until the good guys win, of course.
The fact that somebody else reads half of the novel is unfortunate (I know his name is listed above, but I don't remember it, all the way down here on the page). Comparing any reader to Mr. Balerini is a losing battle. The guy might be decent, but I just wanted him to go away so Edoardo could come back. The thing is in fact a page turner, again, but millions of people like it, and, as they say, who can argue with success? For me, I'd rather read Tim Hallinan or Thomas Perry.
A good story, quick moving. Would like to hear more about the NYPD Red team.
Not quite as good as the Michael Bennett series
nope love audible on the move
never heard them together before
Bomb in garbage shoot and he covers his beloved with his body! So manly!!!
First time listening to the narrator, but would listen to other books they are narrating
Not really because I have a bias for print versions
Locked On, because of the commentator and the action packed "head turning pages"
When twice Michael saved Kyla by placing his body over hers
Fast and furious action
This is the kind of book that I wish all my ebooks are.... fast, one you do not want to let go, one you want and can finish in a day..... Unfortunately, all my Clancy books take more than 4 days to complete..... unless I do not sleep anymore! Laugh out Loud!
Sassy dialogue, humor, and a great reader are important to me.
Imaginative, competitive, heroic
First from author's thanks to 1st in series sale.
when Zach protects Kaylie at the trash incinerator
I wanted to increase my reader and author base so this book did both. I liked Edorado voice as Zach (will get more of his work) and Jay did a good job on the chameleon's part (I have another 1st in series from Jay as this did not give him enough room to perform.
The mix of all the characters starts a good series.
note: I do use the new 1.25x speed
Seemed like reading a 1950s detective novel. Some of the details seemed a bit far fetched. I've never been in a house where I could rip out a single piece of coaxial cable, over 40 foot long, and do it in less than 2 minutes.
