No I would not re-listen only because I only listen once. But if I had to pick one why not this one
Where Our hero played Russian Roulette with the Wolf.
The story was really three stories in one. The Hero Jack had his rules to live by and sometimes let them slide a bit. The Atlantic City robbery and it's unfolding was well constructed, especially Jacks several times escaping his own end and the backdrop story of a foreign bank job gone bad with it's relationships all kept me in the book.
If the author's next book would use the same main character and narrator I for one would snap it up.
No-Only because I never listen to a book twice.
I liked the stories flow and the crisp writing with snap back dialogue.
I have read two reviews that said the reader did not finish listening or did not care how this one ended. Frankly I wonder what kind of a fiction book could please those reviewers. This is a solidly written story and it was performed well. I will look forward to more from this author.
I think what made me like the book from the beginning was easily because of the other series books and the TV series making the characters be in focus.
The story never seemed to have a slow point so I just kept listening until the guy says " Audible hopes you enjoyed this program,"
The writing is good enough so the two of them seem to easily weave in and out of the story.
I liked the last chapter and the ending
This series is one of the best. Lots of action and colorful characters make each book in the series an excellent choice.
Silva--- The author winds him up and keeps him ticking.
I just wish the next book will be here tomorrow. I just love the series.
Good writer and I keep my eye out for word on his new releases. The narrator, Chris Rummel is really good. I sometimes make purchases based on who is narrating.
I felt this was the weakest book in the series yet it was worth listening to though I kept waiting for it to suddenly get better. That did not happen but I will still wait for the next volume.
With a tale to tell the author concentrated on two characters that brought the story to life. This I agree was the best way to present the details.
The part I liked least was the lack of suspense related to one characters demise. You knew he was lost and the book just took too long to explain what was unable to be explained. The Navy basically lost contact with a sub that the Japs likely took out based on post war records etc.
I would see it because it would make a better movie when presented with good visuals which are of course left to the readers imagination as the audio story is presented. It has been too long without a good Submarine movie hitting the theaters.
I liked the way the book started off and the Vegas casino stuff but really when the heroine ends up in the desert and then in a frozen state from being in a meat locker, I thought it was time to consider something else.
This one just was not for me.
Any book done by narrator Dick Hill has to be decent and this one was better because of the narrator.
I had read the other books written years back and was surprised to see this new one on Audible. It is worth the listen though it maybe of help to have followed the characters in the earlier books.
I enjoy listening more than actually reading books these days. At the park listening while I walk the puppy works better for me. This book gets you invested in the characters and the story.
As is the case with all audible reviews, you have to like the narrators job if the book hooks you.
I liked following the main character not quite being the honest young attorney falling in onto the bad site and then trying to outwit other bad guys to survive.
I for one would like to see if the character comes back in a second book as I would give it a listen.
I liked the new movie and this book followed immediately behind it. There should be more coming- I hope.
Kristen Bells narration is what makes the listen so appealing. You have seen her in character on TV and in the movie. Having her in character in the book is great.
It is a just a good listen
