    Combat pilot Jake Bronson believed the worst was behind him. But when a sophisticated terrorist cell shows up in his hometown, he's drawn into a conflict that threatens the heart and soul of every mother in America. The bonds of love and loyalty are tested as Jake and his friends are swept into a deadly chase that takes them from the beaches of California to the depths of the world's longest underground river, and finally to the remote jungles of the Venezuelan rain forest.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Enemy of My Enemy to be better than the print version?

    I rarely get time to sit down and read books so I do prefer audio books for that reason. I do love to read, but I have more time available when driving to listen to books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters commitment to each other.


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He gives depth to the characters by the different voices and emotions in his narration.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could break this one up more than the first book.


    Any additional comments?

    While I did find the story very compelling, I also felt that the independent vigilantly violence got a bit out of hand to the point that it was hard to stay quite as connected to the story. Made it more unbelievable.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to BRAINRUSH, a Thriller the most enjoyable?

    The characters are both down to earth and unstoppable. There are plenty of twist and turns in the story line, but not so many that any of them drag or get lost in too much detail.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of BRAINRUSH, a Thriller?

    The black obelisk rocketing off.


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He has good changes of voice for the different characters and good energy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, I actually stayed up all night to finish it!


    Any additional comments?

    This book is one of the best that I've listened to in a very long time! Totally worth the money and time to listen to. It's one that I'll be listening to again!
