Scott Brick is great. However, plot was sophomoric and convoluted with gratuitous violence.....was glad to get it over with.
Am now two-thirds of the way through Book 4. All the good guys keep getting pummeled. My frustration is about to get the better of me and I may leave the series after 75 hours of feeling like the crap is being kicked out of me/the protagonists. Keep hoping for goodness to prevail and craving that rush of dopamine when the bad guys start getting their comeuppance. Regarding the new narrator: Colacci just takes getting used to. I agree with Thomas who says “if Colacci had narrated the first three, I would have loved them just the same,” although I still can’t help wincing when he says “ee-ah” and “ur” and uses a Texas accent for Kotto Okian. However, his use of British accents for the Ildirans and the gutteral “ch” for pronouncement of Ildiran names is clever. Still anxious for this volume to be over. May continue to Book 5 only if curiosity prevails over my mid-series tedium.
Stayed up all night listening...couldn't stop. I've read them all - 30 novels by Baldacci, Clancy, Flynn - I'd put Peterson's Forced to Kill among the best. Meticulous attention to detail, excellent timing/pacing, got me completely and emotionally involved. Can't understand the negative comments about Dick Hill.....he's one of the masters and his performance was superb!
Compelling story, well- paced. Nice balance between character development and action. McLarty/Cassidy a great combination. Wish there were more books in the series.
