    In the wilds of Mongolia, a research satellite has crashed, triggering an explosive search for its valuable cargo: a code-black physics project connected to the study of dark energy...and a shocking image of the eastern seaboard of the United States in utter ruin. At the Vatican, a package arrives containing two strange artifacts: a skull scrawled with ancient Aramaic and a tome bound in human skin. DNA evidence reveals that both came from the same body: the long-dead Mongol king Genghis Khan.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Yes, a different narrator. Had Armand Schultz or Lou Phillips Diamond or a number of others narrated the book, I would have enjoyed it so much.


    What didn’t you like about Christian Baskous’s performance?

    His cadence was off and his accent during straight narration changed so often.

    Two years ago, Robin Monarch was a top level CIA operative—perhaps the best they had when it came to black bag operations. Then one day, in the middle of an operation, with his team around him in the field, Monarch walked away, leaving his old life and friends behind without a word of explanation. Now this ex-soldier, ex-operative, and orphan with a murky past is a thief, stealing from the super-rich and has surfaced in St. Tropez.

    So many characters and yet the author manages to give you a feeling for each-- as does the narrator. And the story itself flowed. Never a time did I want to put the book down!

    As with her first book, Hidden, the plot was fun to follow. The narration in this book was much better than the first and thus, made the read more enjoyable. I look forward to reading the third in the series.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The narrator


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not really, but I enjoyed the story.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kate Rudd?

    Someone who did not sound like a kid.


    Any additional comments?

    One of the books in this series was on my "recommended" list so I thought I would start with the first book. I will probably read another since the narrator is a different person.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Path of the Assassin to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version, but I doubt it.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, but if I am really enjoying a book, I hate to put it down.

    What three words best describe Scott Brick’s voice?

    disappointingly forced dramatization

    I have always liked Steve Berry's stories-- this one, too. But Scott Brick's narration style has changed and I do not enjoy listening to him.

    Where does The Witness rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I have enjoyed most of Ms. Roberts' books. This one takes her readers to a higher level of action/thrills/suspense, romance and a touch of delicious humor. Her characters developed immediately-- and there are so many who are integrate to the story. And Julia Whelan is superb! It was really hard to put down.
