    A bereaved doctor undertakes a diabolical experiment in a shattering philosophical thriller that anticipates the moral, social, and metaphysical dilemmas science is poised to confront. Davis Moore is a fertility doctor in Chicago specializing in reproductive cloning, when his 17-year-old daughter is brutally raped and murdered. The case is investigated but never solved. Months later, Moore retrieves her belongings from the police, and finds among them a vial containing the killer's DNA.

    Story

    Although the general thread is engaging with all its twists and turns, and has a reasonable ending, the final third was a let down. The Shadow World game, which is full of holes and does not add anything to the story, was too prominent towards the end. The bit where the Shadows are dancing in the night club is just awful. One wonders if the author has ever used a computer game.

    A tour bus crashes in a savage snowstorm and lands Jack Reacher in the middle of a deadly confrontation. In nearby Bolton, South Dakota, one brave woman is standing up for justice in a small town threatened by sinister forces. If she's going to live long enough to testify, she'll need help. Because a killer is coming to Bolton, a coldly proficient assassin who never misses.

    Overall

    Although the last two books by Child were under average, he's made a fair comeback with 61 hours. In my case, I don't describe his books as fast-paced, but I cannot put them down either. This one is no exception in that I finished it in two days. Well written and plausible in its own way, a little predictable although I miss more clues than Reacher of course. All in all I recommend it to everyone, especially his followers: you won't be disappointed.

    Kyle McAvoy grew up in his father's small-town law office in York, Pennsylvania. He excelled in college, was elected editor-in-chief of The Yale Law Journal, and his future has limitless potential. But Kyle has a secret, a dark one, an episode from college that he has tried to forget. The secret, though, falls into the hands of the wrong people, and Kyle is forced to take a job he doesn't want, even if it's a job most law students can only dream about....

    "Great book, even greater narrator"
    Overall

    If you are into legal thrillers, you will like this audiobook. It keeps its pace throughout the 10 hours, and I was never distracted. If you don't, you should still try it, just to hear its superb narrator, which really does an excellent job, especially when putting different voices to the different characters. Don't expect though a rapid adventure novel with a thousand twists in the plot, there is only one smooth story line, but very well written and presented.
