Sorry, this book is a loser. Stupid from start to finish. Any of Dan Brown's other books are a much better choice.
I'm sorry I bought this audio book. I got so tired of all the "he said" and the monotone boring narrator who gave the same voice to all characters that the story just didn't work for me.
Contrary to so many fine reviews, I just could not finish this unabridged audio book and have finally given up. Boring. For me the author just has too much detail and not enough story.
I liked it! I look forward to the next one. Sure, it had a few unbelivable moments, but all it all I really enjoyed the story.
I really like all the novels featuring John Corey and this one is another winner. The storyline steadily builds and holds interest right up to the end. Corey's character freely exhibits his sarcastic wit combined with an outspoken don't hold back nature, and a tenacious pursuit of his detective instincts makes every page entertaining. I also like the sharing his cynical thoughts throughout the story.
This book does an excellent job of blending facts with fiction thoughout the plot about TWA Flight 800.
As much as I thoroughly enjoyed this book, I would have preferred to give this book a 5-star rating except for two unfortunate items. One was the unnecessary detail of the, albeit short, sex scenes. The other and more disturbing issue was what I felt was an unwarranted and dubious ending to the book. I felt cheated after moving continuously to the edge of my seat building up to the final climax. It is unfortunate that the author took the easy way out instead of writing a finish that is commensurate with his world class talent.
One last point; at first I thought the narrator had a clothespin over his nose as he read the novel. His voice just didn't seem to fit the John Corey I was thinking of. I did get used to it however and all is well.
