One of the best spy novels I've listened to in a long time. Each chapter keeps drawing the listener in further and further with question after question piling up.
The ending is still driving me nuts! (In a good way) I'm going to have to listen to it again to see if I missed anything and to try to figure it all out. I really hated to see it come to an end. Totally unpredictable
Yes - A rather topsy-turvy view of history from the beginning, but he makes it all so plausible that who's to say that it didn't really happen this way.
There were definitely "driveway moments" when I got home but had to stay in the car listening until I finished a particular crisis
A really good read from a great author. And as always, superbly read bu Scott Brick.
A great spy/mystery novel. The twists and turns keep the reader off guard until about the last hour of the book. And even then, the "why" is still unknown. The only downside, and its not much, is that the wrap-up at the end is all a little too simplistic.
I've never been disappointed with a David Baldacci book
They both were the perfect fit for their characters. And there ability to give each character a different voice brings realism and clarity to the book. I hadn't heard of Oriagh before, but I've never been disappointed by a book done by Ron McLarty. I hope I hear from the duo again soon
Ever since Patterson became a corporation, "his" books have been hit & miss. I assume most of the books are written by the associate author. However, this book brings back Patterson at his best. Suspense, twists & turns and a clear logical conclusion. I highly recommend it to those who remember the old Patterson.
The twists and turns of the plot. A Mitch Rapp book is never predictable.
Crisp & clear. Easy to listen to in my car on long trips
Yes, definitely. It's the kind of book that I would sit in the driveway when I got home just to finish a chapter.
I live in Northern Wisconsin and been to the range many times so it was easy to picture the scenes and the people and the town. The character were especially colorful and I enjoyed the mysteries, twists and turns of the plot.
The main character has such an interesting complex personality that I want to listen to the next book right away so I can find out more about him.
I love that part of the country and now I can't wait to get back up to the Boundary Waters as soon as spring arrives (That's late June up there)
Northern Minnesotan dialect
One half chapter seemed to be repeated right after itself but slightly differently. I listened to it 3 times and I never did figure it out
This book should be required reading for all Presidential candidates, and for anyone seeking political office. And if anyone doubts the Author's authority to write this book, they should look at Chrysler before he got there and after he left compared to what it was during his leadership. I read his first book 25 years ago and the "fire in the belly", straight-talk that was evident then is still going strong today.
Where are the leaders like Truman, Theodore Roosevelt, or Lincoln when the future of the world is at stake? Do any of the current crop even come close? They should all be required to answer the basic 10 points that Iaocca outlines in Chapter one.
Besides, its fun to listen to.
As a father and grandfather I can see the parent's point of view, but I can also see amd understand the daughter's side of the issue. If we are at a pont where we can only write politically neutral books, it's become a sorry state of affairs. All in all it was simply a great political mystery thriller that kept me wishing I could spend more time in the car listening to it to see what would happen next.
The book definitely had its moments, but overall it seemed to be quite predictable. It also tended to get confusing with the various names and locations.
One of the better books I've listened to. A lot of unexpected twists and turns kept me listening even after I got to my driveway. The only part I was a little disappointed in was the ending. The final few chapters lacked surprise - but maybe that's because I was so keyed up by the rest of the book. Definitely a "keeper".
