Flanagan continues doing a great job at bringing the Rangers story to life, however he might consider getting a better narrator. Keating lacks the skill in making each character distinctive. All the voices sound the same and the pitch of his voice never changes. Halt should be a low, level voice of reason and confidence, but Keating makes him sound like a questioning naive youngster. I was very disappointed when I first started listening to the story but hung in there because I enjoy Flanagan's excellent work.
Mr. Gilstrap is a master at what he writes and the narrator completes the package. You will not be disappointed by this well written well read book!
Dick Wolf strikes again! Well written to capture and retain the listeners attention! And the narrator breaths life into the excellent storyline!
Once again Sullivan brings it to the reader at a pace that's guaranteed to keep you on the edge of your seat! The narrator does a great job at bringing each characters personality to life and reveals the storyline in a manner designed to please. Well done!!
Once again Mark Greaney has pulled out all of the stops and written a masterful thrill packed story that keeps the listener on the edge of their seat. And as usual, the never ending talent of the narrator brings all the characters to life. Fantastic!!!!
Story was inconsistent and took a long time to develop the plot. Certain aspects were cheesy and the title was not represented by the main character. There was nothing Silent about him and he was more like a puppet controlled by a cold hearted power crazed female who lead from the comfort of her cozy desk. Overall, this book doesn't hold a candle to the greats like Clancy and Greaney.
The Lucas Davenport character was portrayed as an immoral borderline dirty cop who made deals with the press for implied sexual favors and slept with as well as discussed case information potential witnesses. He is not the same Davenport I had come to admire in past books.
It could have been more enjoyable if it had read like an intrigue filled mystery thriller instead of a sex starved dishonest cop's pathetic relationship novel. There is more dialogue about Davenports failed and current female love interests then the actual murder mystery, which by the way, isn't a mystery at all since we already know who the killers are. This book lacked excitement and I really wanted to feel that "sitting on the edge of your seat" anticipation.
The narrator was good, but did not seem to have much to work with as far as storyline and characters went. The only thing I felt was off was Davenports voice, it seemed to vary throughout the book.
I would limit the Casey/Davenport scenes and heighten the pursuit of the killers.
Mr. Sanford has always been one of my favorite authors, however this novel did not live up to his usual high standards. The only reason I listened to the entire book was because I paid for it.
Less romance and more thrilling investigative dialogue
No offense, but this author team is not a good mix. Patterson has been one of my favorites for as long as I can remember, but when he teams up with Paetro, the novels become more seated in romance then Pattersons signature thrillers.
Use a different narrator. This one doesn't seem to understand the need to vary tone and voice projection depending on the situation. She is "bubbly" all the time, even during tense or unpleasant circumstances.
Yuki's entire honeymoon dialogue and Lindsay's 'over the top' declaration of love for her husband...it was ridiculous. It's not a bad thing, but the narrator really ruined it. Lindsay has always been a calm cool yet intense detective and this narrator made her sound like a cheerleader. The same with Yuki.
Unfortunately, this type of team doesn't work and has the very real potential of losing fans.
Yes indeed! If you thrive on being pulled from one thrill to the next while enjoying the excellent picture /plot being narrated by a true pro...you'll love this book!
Tucker, hands down. His confidence and abilities as well as his deep loyalty and love for Caine is awesome!
No, but I am soooo glad I got to experience his talent in narration. He truly knows how to bring each character to life in their own unique way...even Caine the canine.
Every time Tucker expressed his deep devotion to Caine, I felt a certain kinship. I too have two wonderful German Shepards I feel the same love and devotion.
To the author I say...Excellent book and I look forward to the next Tucker/Caine adventure. To the narrator I say...Well done and then some!
I really enjoyed the strength and conviction demonstrated in the Ray's character. Being retired military I can relate to his sense of HCC.
The details, I thought the author did a great job at revealing the brave men and women who also serve our country, but receive no recommendation for their efforts. (FBI, police etc.) In addition, Hunter did a great job at exposing the very true nature of how politics can hinder the extraordinary efforts of these courageous heroes.
This is my first time listening to Gigante's and he is definitely very good at what he does. He has a firm understanding of the importance of providing each character their own personality as well as a unique voice. Well done!
Without a doubt!
I haven't read the print version so it wouldn't be fair to compare. However, I will say that if the print version is as awesome as the audible, it must be an excellent read.
Kolt of course!! I have the honor of working with SOF members and Kolt is an excellent depiction of these very special individuals.
Kolt. The Narrator really brings the book to life with each character given a distinctive persona. Well done!!
A True Eye Opener for the Uninformed, Untested and Unrealistic Thinkers!
Dalton Fury is definitely right up there with Mark Greaney, David Baldacci, James Patterson and so many more extraordinary authors. His book literally has you gripping the sides of your seat the entire time!! The action and suspense is nearly heart stopping and I found it extremely difficult to push the pause button when I had to force myself to focus on work!! Yes, It is THAT good! I won't fill in any details because they need to be experienced by the listener. You will not be disappointed...I promise!
