    After his wife, Helen, is brazenly abducted before his eyes, Special Agent Pendergast furiously pursues the kidnappers, chasing them across the country and into Mexico. But then, things go terribly, tragically wrong; the kidnappers escape; and a shattered Pendergast retreats to his New York apartment and shuts out the world. But when a string of bizarre murders erupts across several Manhattan hotels, NYPD Lieutenant D'Agosta asks his friend Pendergast for help.

    What would have made Two Graves better?

    Any attention whatsoever to the plot, editing, character development.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child again?

    Yes, because I'm a huge fan of their writing, but in this book it seemed as if they'd dumped all their writing notes into a box and sent it off to a graduate student to fit into something resembling a book. Simply dreadful.


    What didn’t you like about Rene Auberjonois’s performance?

    Rene did the best he could with a disappointing script.


    What character would you cut from Two Graves?

    Corinne, her father, Constance, Fowler, everyone in Brazil....

    Better yet. Cut them all and start over.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a huge fan of these authors. This book is an utter disappointment.

  • Bad Luck and Trouble: A Jack Reacher Novel

    • UNABRIDGED (13 hrs and 16 mins)
    • By Lee Child

    Story
    (1875)

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    Overall

    I am a huge Lee Child fan and have listened to nearly all of the Jack Reacher novels from audible within the last two months. This one is a huge disappointment. To start, the recording quality is poor -- one chapter is suddenly louder than the last, then reverts to quiet again at a whim. Not pleasant to have in one's ears. Second, Jack is better than he is portrayed here. As are his SI friends. They stumble around in this book as if they have no training at all. Finally, Jack often find himself in bed with someone at some point -- in this novel that entire line of subplot is absurd. This won't stop me from listening to every last Lee Child book (particularly if Dick Hill continues to narrate them), but I can't help but think he phoned this one in.
