Was engaging mostly to the end. Worth the download.
You will be a fan once you listen to this book if you are not already. Differently not a waste of a credit because Dave and Cleat will put you through their wild ride all the way to the end of the book. I found myself sitting the car late for an appointment just wanting to hear the last detail in that story line... Will Patton is the best narrator for JLB audible books. Enjoy!!
First you can't go wrong with George Guidall narrating Silva's books.
This book will be interesting... but a little predictable. So, you if want a spy novel that's not to over the top with blood and violence this is wins.
I don't know if I found the right headline word for a book that didn't excite me or was sad that it had to end. It is a sweet love story of a girl who's mother had planned her life before birth to become just like herself, a famous surgeon... but that's not what happens. The daughter, Liz /Abigail who lacked the love of her mother rebells for the first time at 16 and ends up in a situation of witnessing a Russian mob killing and then is placed in witness protection only to have her protectors killed so she escapes and goes into hiding for the next 12 years. She intrigues the handsome single sheriff of this small town where she's been recluse and they fall in love and then skillfully comes up with a way to expose all those involved with the mob killings... you get the picture.
I try to be objective and expose myself to good writers and all types of generas. I think Roberts is a good writer and if you like simple love stories with a taste of heat then this book will fill that bill!
I am big fan of Sandra Brown and narrator victor Slezak! It's very well written and engaging through to the end. The only reason I didn't give this a 5 star is because I figured out the "who done it" in the very last half of the book. Never the less... the characters are well developed and for the most part believable. I don't feel that it was too overly sexual or brutal. It's a story that will take you on a great ride with a loose seat belt. Enjoy!
I enjoyed listening to this book because it was well written and well narrated. The Joe PIckett novels are easy listening and engaging. The characters are well developed and have a sense of depth to them. I wouldn't call these novels real mysteries or thrillers if that is what you are looking for. Over all, I recommend the series if your not into on the edge of your seat novels. You can sleep at night after listening to these books which is a good change sometimes for me.
I really tired to like this story but it was too disconnected for me and I love a good spy novel. The characters seems very shallow and the ending was predicable and blah! The narration wasn't bad. Don't waste your full credit on this book... wait till it's on sale if you have read the other reviews that seem more favorable.
It's really great when the sequel lives up to the predecessor and then surpasses it! This sequel was engaging and flowed seamlessly. If you are a Micheal Connelly fan of the Reacher series, also read by Dick Hill... this is Peterson's version of Reacher but with a tad less attitude. I also enjoy the the relationships that McBride has that show a great depth to this character. I am now a fan of Andrew Peterson's. Enjoy!
I don't know if I would consider this a "thriller" but rather an entertaining book well narrated by Dick Hill. It's a story of mixed intrigue involving the sins of a governmental cover up and brother's that kill for revenge. Between an FBI agent and our hero's, the two main characters who are ex-militarily snipers and long time best friends. They tactically are on hunt to eliminate these guys and resolve the threat. The content is mostly believable and I feel would be worth the credit. Enjoy!
This book doesn't live up to the Faithful Spy as far as intrigue and in dept believable story content. It was just alright for me. John Wells, is the Dirty Harry solider that can blend in with the insurgents and take out the bad guys even if they are Americans. The narration by George Guidall is always worth the credit. If you have read any of the other Wells saga's than you may agree with me... if you have not.... I still recommend this book if you can get it on sale.
Bought this book on sale last year because I love how James Lee Burke always makes the characters in his stories believable. The narration was not the best... but I got used to it. So, if you are able to get this book on sale... and you are already a fan of JLB, this will be a great choice.
