I did enjoy a glimpse of a secret government world, and feeling a part of the inner workings of Washington D.C. That being said, I expected more; I'm still wondering why I should care about the characters. Although I met some of them in an earlier Meltzer novel, they are still underdeveloped.
I was engaged in the story, certainly, but disappointed that there wasn't more depth. Consider this a good vacation read; entertaining, slightly informative regarding government history, and an escape from our non-espionage lives.
Narrator Scott Brick comes through, as always, with a stellar performance.
CAN'T STOP READING--WON'T STOP LISTENING
Meltzer is always fresh, surprising . You go for a ride and you learn a lot on the way. TOO RELEVANT FOR COMFORT.
Scott is always good...he seems to really get into The Fifth Assasin
A smart thriller that you will keep thinking and thinking about.
This one is a WOW! Read it or listen.
Good continuity with first book, somewhat ponderous, but a good and interesting listen. I question the need for so much to be made of the "COPPA RING" Look 4 ward to the next follow on.
give me action
Maybe. Scott can get tiresome with his intonations. Sometimes it'd be nice if he just read the book and didn't insert so much voice inflections.
I think I could listen to even a mediocre story read by Scott Brick
Reminded me of the enjoyable complexity of Dan Brown's books
After Nelson DeMille's books performed by Scott Brick, I'm a big fan and look for books read by him.
Action, illusion, and double-cross
The story flows along. Good for a friendthe
A recurring thread of historic presidential asasins ...very interesting.scott brick rnhances the drsma
He inhances the drama.
A book for history buffs!
....to be continued is the best part of this novel. If I hadn't read "The Inner Circle" I'd have been lost at times.
It was an interesting thriller with many of the familiar Meltzer twists and turns. It was a good read but Brad has a way to go to match Dan Brown in the decoding and historical arena. The characters are wonderful, the narration is sweet but there was something I couldn't put my head around to made me think everything was there.
Still, I anxiously await the third novel in this series, Hadrian, Clementine, Marsh and Beecher need to fulfill this drama to a final crescendo.
I ordinarily like him but it was too much for this book. Undulating narration. Highs and lows in tonal quality-made listening to it difficult whenever there was background noise
Like a movie that is 30 minutes too long, the story could have been shortened.
I would rest rest of the books before listing to this one.
The main character
Yes Scott is very good reader.
Yes at the end going back, then to the present .
