Armand Schultz and his version of scott Harvath!
No one else should ever narrate another brad Thor book!
Scott - of course.
Honestly, I love all Brad's bbok but this one was not my favorite. Maybe because it hits too close to home with the impending collapse of the Federal Reserve and the US dollar.
I read evey one of Brad's books! - Awsome entertainment.
I enjoy all of Brad Thor's books,but for some reason this one took a little while to grow on me. Long time listeners will not be disappointed. Its worth the credit.
It really breaks my heart to write this review and I have been putting it off for weeks. I have been a Brad Thor fan from the start, I have met him, and really enjoy his work. But...I have to be honest, this is a far cry from his greatest work. I know he has said it is his best work yet, and I know you don't want to call your kid ugly Brad, but let's be honest, Scott Harvath playing the role of a 2nd fiddle police detective? Not good, not good at all!I truly enjoy Scott Harvath in all of his rude and crude glory. He is a take no prisoners character that does what it takes to get the job done no matter how messy he may get. Scott is a one man army, a wrecking crew if you will - not a guy that runs around holding the purse for a female police detective. I was tempted to stop listening to this book, but I was certain it would get better, it had to, but it didn't.
Go back to the Scott Harvath your readers know and love. Oprah's book club doesn't need you and this attempt to get on her list should be abandoned immediately with is lone book!
Scott of course.
I would not even watch it on cable.
I feel so bad having to say this about such a wonderful author, who has written so many wonderful tales. But with the premature passing of Vince Flynn and the loss of the master Tom Clancy this year, Brad has a huge void to fill. This book does not come close to measuring up to those great writers where once he did so; easily.
This is not one of Brad Thor's best. First of all, the reader was very poor. If you had used George Guidell, who has done them before, the whole book would have gained 4 stars. The story line is average and the torture unnecessary.
What ever George Guidell has narrated
I would have made the crazy cop not that violent
The story line was good.
Not as much as other Thor books.
George Guidall would have been so much better. This narrator sounds stilted and lacked expression. Could hardly stand to finish the book because of the untalented narrator.
Please have George Guidall narrate all the rest of Brad Thors books!
I've read and listened to Thor enough to look forward to his books, but it is though he had someone else write this.
The dialogue in this book is awful.
I would have asked for a re-write.
It just seemed like there was a lot of unnecessary information.....like the author was putting it in there to make the story long enough....it turned out to be a drag.
The narrator is great and the book moved fast enough while giving plenty of detail.
I could see how this could actually happen and I learned some things about the Fed.
It was scary to contemplate how easily this could happen today in America.
If it had not been published.
Probably not, without verifying that he's gone back to writing thrillers.
None that I can think of. I quit 10% of the way in and will not listen to any more.
Everything after the Somalia sequence.
Way too much political rhetoric and way too little action making the book very slow. I fast forwarded through some of the more political parts and some of the slowest parts, but it was still agonizing slow. Read like a very bad police procedural. Not what I buy a Brad Thor novel for. Couldn't wait for this one to end.
Probably Karin Slaughter's Unseen. I might pass on Brad Thor's next novel.
His performance was okay. I agree that George Guidall is much better.
All of them except Scott, Reed, Ryan and McGee. Thor should have just trashed the whole book and spared the reader this misery and the waste of time and credit.
This was Agony!
