    Where did they find this reader? He sounds like a Edward R. Murrow wannabe. No more Michael Prichard for me.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    Story

    Having just endured an 11+ hour journey that for all intents and purposes dropped me right back where I started, I am a bit frustrated that the authors could not have done a better job on the ending. Hooking the readers with a cliffhanger in order to sell subsequent books is all fine and good but this one went a bit too far. As usual though, Rene Auberjonois brought life to all the characters and managed to keep my interest through a few scenes that were perhaps just a bit silly and predictable. All that said, I suppose I will be purchasing the next installment with the hope that it will lead me to a more satisfying ending.

    Tormented her entire life by inhuman voices, Jennsen seeks to end her intolerable agony. She at last discovers a way to silence the voices. For everyone else, the torment is about to begin. Richard Rahl and his wife, Kahlan, have been reunited after their long separation, but with winter descending and the paralyzing dread of an army of annihilation occupying their homeland, they must venture deep into a strange and desolate land.

    D says: "Detour!"
    "Great series! Worst narrator I have EVER heard"
    Overall

    The Terry Goodkind series is really a great read. I have read it in print and have been listening up to this book. Book ones narrator made the story come alive and riveted you to your earbud. This Jim Bond guy should be reading technical manuals to the deaf. He has all of the energy, inflection and drive of an 80's answering machine! I will NOT be buying any more books with this guy narrating. Sorry Jim, nothing personal, but you suck at this job.
