    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "About 6 hours too long"
    Overall

    The sugar sweet prose praising, complimenting and never ending superlatives for Louis were annoying by listening hour two, nerve grating by hour four, fingernails on blackboard by hour six and I stopped listening about 8 hours in.

    The action adventure stuff was incredible, but is was just too, too much with how wonderful and perfect our hero was.

    Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

    Cris says: "Better than Other Recent Releases"
    "If you've ever been in the military, skip this one"

    Story

    The storyline is just OK, but the nonsensical dialogue and interaction between a Brigadier General and a CWO (that the author repeatedly and erroneously refers to as enlisted, rather than not a commissioned officer, but certainly outranking the enlisted) is so farcical as to make the last half of the book almost unreadable.

    Actually, if I didn't have a thing about leaving books unfinished...

    Save yourself the time and credit. This author has never served and has no idea of military culture, despite the fact his main character is active Army. What a waste of almost 13 hours.
