Luv Scott brick as narrator..he does justice to every book he reads. great collaboration of all involved! authors & narrator!!
I'd recommend this book to a friend, but would suggest they read it hard copy rather than in audio. This series is done a great disservice because the performer refrains from giving Kate (one of the two main characters) any personality at all. He has done a somewhat better job with some of the other characters in the book, but Kate's character has great, untapped potential. I tried this book because I've enjoyed Evanovich's Stephanie Plum series, and was expecting a similarly enjoyable audio experience.
Mr. Brick's voice is better suited for narration (as would be used for a non-fiction, expository type of text), rather than performance. His style is not a good fit for this type of story, as it's not as expressive as the story line and characters warrant.
I enjoyed hearing how the plot played out; I love a book where the bad guy gets his due, and the authors did this in fine style, with creativity and some humor. The story itself was strong enough to entice me to listen to the subsequent books in this series, despite the somewhat disappointing audio performance.
The description of Nick and Kate is hysterical and the dynamic between the two characters is volatile and humorous.
Nick is probably my favorite character just because of his sense of humor and ease at which he adapts to situations.
Funny and interesting!
characters keep true to themselves
able to tell different characters
would love more romance between main characters !!!!!!!

Kate's O'Hare's father is magnificent. Wish he were mine. Also, I have to say: I liked this book at first, got sidetracked, came back to it and wasn't as enthused, got sidetracked again, came back and was put out with Kate for being such a hardass--until the men behind the curtain were revealed. Then things changed. With Kate & Nick Fox working as a team, the interplay was delicious. Great dialog--gave me many smiles. "Stick with me and I'll get you to enjoy taking your clothes off."
Stephanie Plum series except Kate O'Hare can kill a man 12 ways with a tweezers so she's more like a (relatively) law-abiding Ranger.
I enjoy Scott Brick's reading - have heard many of his books. Breezy style. Fun books.
The dialog made me laugh. And smile. A LOT.
Love the crew but most especially Willie. Can't say enough good things about Kate's father. Any man who provides his daughter with a rocket launcher--can it get any better than that?!
This book surprised me by the twist and turns of the plot. I have read all of Janet Evanovich's Plum series which I enjoy for the wit and find this series to be much better. There is still a lot of eating and drinking in this series but there is also more plot and substance
I'm A serious fan of Janet Evanovich I have nearly all of her books I am also serious fan of Scott Brick. Half in love with the guys voice. this story was wonderful you are completely engage the entire time by the two main characters and, who wouldn't want a father who go to the ends of the earth for his daughter.
I really don't care for Scott Brick so I didn't enjoy the book as much as I wanted to. The reader for the Plum novels is terrific I would have preferred a female reader--almost anyone other than Brick. Story line was "Castle--lite."
