This is an enjoyable story with some twists and turns. The author included enough story. It seemed slow in some parts but I think that may have had more to do with the narration. I enjoyed this book about this family with interesting sub plots. It has some humor. The beginning was good. It was good middle of road book. Nothing over the top, interesting subplots making you want to stay with book. The narrator at times seemed really good but she has that breathy voice, it can become tiresome. I bought this for the weekend listen. It's worth the credit.
I am new to BE's writing and to suspense generally. I have a bad reaction to listening to torture. However, I think I really love John Rains as a character. This book like all the others in the series is well written. I have spent several days devouring these stories. I thought I might get tired of them but no...there is something in each one that intrigues me to the point I need to find out what happens. Thoroughly enjoy BE's narration. Great entertainment...thank you.
This was a great introduction to Barry Eisler's writing and John Rains. I love these stories. This books are different enough to keep you interested. The stories suspenseful. I enjoyed every on of these books. John Rains is an a man of these times. Hero and Killer.
I bought John Rain Book 5 it was great. Return to buy more and this is one of the books in my personal marathon. I have thoroughly enjoyed these stories. Wonderfully suspenseful, surprising. Interesting and captivating. Thank you.....You are a wonderful narrator.
It could be a book impresses you due to timing, I am sick of romance. Many writers of suspense are too gory for me. I love good narration. It is rare to find an author with such a gift for narration. This story grabbed me and I loved it. Now I have to listen to all of them. This book was well written. I won't forget this one!
One of a kind writer. There is meaning in all things. The clear eye sees it and communicates it. Lovely.
I know I will get slammed for this review. The mystery caught me...the sex was too much for me, I finally fast forwarded through most of it. All I wanted was an answer to some of the questions. No answers here, just a hook to keep you purchasing, however, not for me. The mystery was interesting, the characters were interesting. The first part seemed too simple for the complexity it became. I really like that part. If you ever write a mystery book with a little romance please let me know. I will buy that one.
Sadly I grew bored with this book. This author , who tries to use every single word she has ever heard in a story, and the over the top narration. The movie didn't do well but I like it. I accidentally found the book and thought I would enjoy but not so much. I could not get through it. Narrator has a great French accent and abiity to speak the language but it was all over done. When you find yourself rolling your eyes over and over you just have to say enough!
I so appreciate the truly different personalities this author gave these strong male and female characters. I loved "tack" in Mystery Man and loved him more here. This was prime entertainment. Appreciated the narrator. This is an author to follow she is sharp, smart and gives an interesting, suspenseful story with bonds that grow. This entire series was excellent. 2 of these I will listen to more than once. This one for sure.
The premise of this book is not new but the author gives it a fresh and very lovely facelift. The narrator is a voice a could listen to for hours and I did. Thank you so much. This book is the exact right combination of ingredients to cook up a fantastic listen. While I love Nate and Olivia, the complimenting cast of characters were so good. I just really enjoyed this book and it will be one I will listen to more than once. Thank you!
I enjoyed this story even though I really don't like a book that is so analytical. I don't care for books that seem to be written by psychologists. I love these characters enough to get over it. Rule hooked me, so I had to know about big brother. He is a complicated guy. I enjoyed their evolution. Good stuff.
