I don't know how much Clancy was involved with this but it isn't up to the quality that I expect from a Clancy book. Don't waste your time and money.
There is no better American writer alive today than James Lee Burke. And Will Patton's narration proves it.
Thought that the book needed to be edited tighter than it was edited. Kind of kept pounding the same nail over and over in several spots. Hit it once or maybe twice to really make a point but then you gotta just move on otherwise it starts to drag on too much.
Eisler is a pretty good narrator also. Not a top-notch professional but ever so much better than some authors that try to read their own work.
This probably would have been good porn, oops, I think it's called a "bodice ripper", but there was a fair detective story interrupting all of the hot-n-bothered writing.
Really, this book belongs in the "adults only" category with an XXX rating.
Yeah, you're right, I won't be reading any more of the trash written by Toby Neal. And shame on the publisher, Audible, and Amazon for not giving this book a proper description.
The author doesn't know if the main character is supposed to be a dumb twit that needs to be saved or is a smart competent woman that can save herself and others.
Example, at one point Ridley asks, "Is there something like a reverse phone directory?", then later in the book she uses her computer to go to her Lexis-Nexis account to skip trace someone. D'oh. If you've got the intelligence and acumen to have a L-N account you certainly are going to know that there is a reverse phone directory.
Seems like the author tries very hard to make a damsel-in-distress just so she can have a perfectly buff, gorgeous guy save her while she turns around and saves him. Hum. Why does that story line sound familiar?
I don't know how much of this is real, or possible in 2014. Or, how much is likely in the near or far future. But it is scary, maybe terrifying. Or maybe it's all sci-fi. You decide.
It was a little slow to start but then it turned into another magnifico story.
A couple of times I thought this was going to be a Stephen King or Dean Koontz type of book. Luckily it didn't go that far. It's more like an amp'ed up Robin Cook -- a very suspenseful medical mystery. I certainly recommend it to mystery/thriller lovers.
I can't imagine anyone doing a better job with the narration. Richard Poe nailed it.
A short story about Reacher's early years. A little too far-fetched, no high school boy thinks that way. Should be attached to one of the other full-size stories as an "Also included", but for $2...
Dick Hill is one of the BEST narrators around. He's perfect for this series.
Such a great story, I did could not stop listening to it.
A tense-filled mystery wrapped in an intense snapshot of American history.
Thomas Cook wrote a winner. Ray Chase did a good job with the narration, but a couple of the voices were over the top. Just don't plan to listen to it at work or with earbuds. You need to play it into a large open room.
No dirty language or porn, oops, I think they call it romance nowadays. Sort of a young married Mrs. Marple mystery. A great book for the beach. All set in a pecan pie of the South.
