No. Did not hold my attention.
I bought this recording without knowing any details about story. That is because I have read all of the other Swyteck books & they are great! I was initially disappointed when I realized this was going to be a rehash of the Casey Anthony case but I put that aside, confident that Grippando would add a twist that would make it worth it. Unfortunately, that did not happen. Frankly, I was bored. The story moved excruciatingly slowly, was slightly illogical and I found that at certain points in the story I forgot who the different players were - this is VERY unusual for a Grippando book.
I am still a huge Swyteck fan but I can not recommend this one.
Yes, Whether it stretches reality or not it is riveting!
Plot is along the lines of Jurassic Park but MUCH more graphic.
This was my first time listening to Snyder but his performance was pretty good.
I would recommend the Scot Harvath series but not this particular book. The plot of the book seemed to just be an afterthought compared to the concentration on the subject of Internet/communication security. At times I felt like I was sitting through a security lecture. Thor is usually successful @ combining a great plot w/interesting tidbits of political info & heart pounding action. Not this time.
Learning about all of the technology that is being used to spy/"protect" citizens was really interesting; I just wish it could have been better interwoven into the story.
I didn't enjoy Armand Schultz' performance. His voice for Scot was too weak; it simply did not match the strong, deadly Black Ops persona. Also Nicholas sounded like a child, when we know that despite his stature he has a strong, slightly British accented voice.
