This is a great audiobook. The threat of cyberwarfare seems very plausible, and the story itself is gripping. Maybe the superheroic exploits of the characters are a little over the top, but you don't read Tom Clancy for total realism. And the narrator was great. He used just a hint of accents to remind the listener of the different ethnicities of the characters. If you buy this book, resign yourself to the fact that you will definitely be listening to it instead of doing things that you SHOULD be doing. It's a hard book to turn off.
This third book of the series continues with pretty much the same cast of characters who were featured in books I and II. And the new characters are appealing and their narrative fits in well with the overall story line. There is a good deal of action and a sense of increased danger as the story progresses. I'm looking forward to book IV.
The book's summary could have made it clearer that this is not really a true novel. It is more of a lecture about the problems of Asperger's Syndrome and autism. There is a thin story line that runs through the book. But 80% of it is a description of Asperger's and the problems people with Asperger's and their families face, And those messages are delivered over and over and over throughout the book.
The publisher's summary made me think this would be a story about how a boy with the unusual thought processes of Asperger's was able to deal with the challenges of forensics. It is not that. It is a lecture on Asperger's.
