The narrator made it very hard to get through this book and I am a big Elvis & Joe fan. He sounded way too young to be believable when speaking I'm sure the story would be one of Crais's usual great reads but the story teller is horrible.
I gave the 3 stars for his past work because I could not get very far in this book because of his narration. I love the way he writes but he really needs to let someone else narrate. His monotone voice puts me to sleep which is not what I am looking for since I listen during my 1.5 hour commute. Maybe this is his plan because now I have to buy the book to start this new series with the hope that he hires a professional narrator. Scott Brick, George Guidall, Steven Weber, Dick Hill, Jay Snyder, or Rob Shapiro just to name a few. But of course this is just one man's opnion
I love this series but Ken Kilban performance made every character, including Rapp, sound for lack of a better term like a shifty weasel. It was actually hard to get through the book but like I said the series is so good I actually bought the book in paperback just to finish it.
I have to agree with most on this book... the build up was great but the ending was a huge letdown so... oh well love the John Corey character so it did not spoil the series for me.
Nelson DeMille and Scott Brick bring to life the sarcastic, quick witted attitude of NYC Det. John Corey. All this combines to make this an entertaining read/listen (I have it both on audible & Kindle) you just can’t put down.
