I am a big fan of Dean Koontz and have enjoyed the earlier books featuring Odd Thomas. This one missed the mark. It lacked the constant suspense of earlier books.
Odd's narratives have become flippant boilerplate in this book. Hoping for better from Mr. Koontz next time.
The only thing similar to a real Robert Ludlum novel is the use of the author's name. The book has a Ludlum-like plot, but it reads like it was assigned to a seventh grade English class to complete the prose. It's poorly written.
I have listened to hundreds of books and this is the worst because of the narrative and the narrators. The narrators try their best to make the book come to life but the lousy narrative fights them with every line.
If you want a great spy novel, try the recent ones by Vince Flynn. These are great audio books with an exciting plot line and excellent narrator.
