    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Ramon says: "Great story with nice twists"
    "Stop the dramatization!"

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Cut out the sounds of bullets, sirens, traffic. I listen to books to escape. These sounds are stressful. From now on I will check and double check to be certain that the books I buy are narrated by one person and without side effects. I will never buy another book with sound effects. Using different narrators for different parts is downright cheesy. Please stop doing this.


    If you’ve listened to books by David Baldacci before, how does this one compare?

    It is hard to tell because of the horrible distraction of the sound effects and multiple voices. I think this story is good, but whenever I hear a change of narrator or siren or bullet, I am knocked out of the story and into real life.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Sometimes I am put off by the words he chooses to emphasize. It feels as if, in an attempt to make his interpretation interesting, he puts emphasis on a word that would not be emphasized in a real conversation. This reminds me of an actor's exercise in reading and is a distraction.


    Was Hell's Corner worth the listening time?

    No. Too long and see above.
