    When Nita Morales hires Elvis Cole to find her missing adult daughter, she isn’t afraid, even though she’s gotten a phone call asking for ransom. She knows it’s a fake, that her daughter is off with the guy Nita will call only “that boy,” and that they need money: "Even smart girls do stupid things when they think a boy loves them." But she is wrong....

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

    I've listened to the audio version of all of Robert Crais's books. I like the narrators and think they add to the enjoyment. I prefer these particular books in audio.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Elvis is my favorite character. I like his personality and compassion. He's smart, funny and just a nice guy.


    Have you listened to any of Luke Daniels???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to him narrate The Sentry and several others. This one wasn't my favorite but I did enjoy it.


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

    I definitely tried to do this all in one sitting. I get caught up in the story and don't want to stop until I'm done.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy listening to audio books and prefer listening to reading for certain authors. That usually is due to the great narrators chosen to perform them. I think the right narrator will either make or break whether I listen or read a book. I've started listening to a series and switched to reading when the narrator changes and doesn't have the same

    I'm not sure what the problem was with the reviewer that said Buyer Beware. I listened to this book and loved the narrations. I've listened (verses read) the whole Alex Cross series and although the narrator changed, I thought the team was good and had a nice flow. Yes it was someone new to the part, but it didn't take long for the new voice to blend with the part of Alex. This was a really good book and brought some of the characters from previous books back to keep the reader actively involved in the story. I'm sure if you are a fan of the Alex Cross series you will be pleasantly entertained by this book regardless of the change in narration.
