It definitely kept my attention, holding my breath as he was being set up by the bad guy with a grudge.
The good people resolution.
The inclusion of softer feelings, morals
along with the contrasting very, very bad people.
Yes. I couldn't but I kept it on much longer than I should.
I'm just grateful to find an author who can leave out the F bombs which are very degrading to me as the listener. I realize that this would be included in people' regular on the job speech, but I'm glad someone doesn't use it.
Too close to reality.
It certainly kept my attention! It was so true to life, I realize it was fiction, but not too far off our current reality.
I don't know, I just read the whole think on Kindle.
It was definitely suspenseful. I thought the President's son's activity was a bit over the top,but who cares, when reading fiction we should be able to "suspend disbelief"
Right after I finished reading I turned on the news and saw the book being shown in real life with the blazzing fires from the protesters and the warring in Urkraine with their people fighting to keep their freedom instead of being sucked back into Russian style of life.
It moved well and kept moving; had a good mix of intrigue with the right amount of romance and family sprinkled into an almost impossible situation.
So close to current events it really grabbed my attention.
Inflection of his voice was well done, definitely not boring.
The whole series moved me but some parts definitely had me holding my breath until resolved.
Portrayal of "President Jackson" made me nuts, I actually got so frustrated that he could be so blind in such an important crisis.

Wrapped up the lose ends of the story and didn't leave you hanging, but clearly left it open for the next book in the series.
It has a whole series
Wouldn't try another book even though I would like too. The constant F--- word is too much. There are a few other swear words here and there, but he seems to use this as punctuation and exclamation when no explitive would not only be preferred, but leaving it out would increase the impact of the scene. If those were gone, I would read all of his books.
Not quite on the edge of my seat, though engaging. The same basic story lines as the character Gabriel Allon in Daniel Silva's series as a killer and an art restorer. This story is a weaker version of the Silva novels.
I probably would listen, but he is not my favorite author. Many times during the reading, the voices of 2 people were so much the same that I couldn't figure out who was talking except for later context.
The story runs in such huge chunks that if it gets pushed forward or backwards you have to listen to 25 or 20 minutes again just to find your place. If you just skip to the next chapter, you miss way too much of the detail of the story.
