    It's one minute after the Big One. Marty Slack, a TV executive, crawls out from under his Mercedes, parked outside what once was a downtown Los Angeles warehouse. Downtown LA is in ruins. The sky is thick with smoke. His cell phone is dead. The freeways are rubble. It will be days before help can arrive. Marty has been expecting this day all his life. He's prepared. He knows there is only one thing he can do... that he must do: get home to his wife, Beth.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Erase the needless and endless F-bombs!


    What was most disappointing about Lee Goldberg’s story?

    I bought the book based on the interesting premise. Over promised, under-delivered.


    Did Luke Daniels do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    Yes.


    What character would you cut from The Walk?

    none


    Any additional comments?

    Hazel Bannock is heir to the Bannock Oil Corporation, one of the major global oil producers. While cruising the Indian Ocean, her yacht is hijacked by Somalian pirates and her nineteen-year-old daughter, Cayla, kidnapped. The pirates demand a crippling 20-billion-dollar ransom for her release, and complicated political and diplomatic sensitivities render the major powers incapable of intervening.

    Would you try another book from Wilbur Smith and/or Rupert Degas?

    Don't think so


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Story was good, until the sex scene -


    Any additional comments?

    Extremely graphic sex scene near the beginning. Decided not to listen to the rest. Enjoyed the book up to that point. Disappointed and wish there was some kind of "heads up" for potential listeners.
