    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Steven L. Otis says: "There will be more of Puller ...."
    "Homage or copycat?"

    Story

    I don't know whether Baldacci wrote this novel as a tongue in cheek homage to Lee Child's Reacher series, or whether he intended to what is otherwise a blatant ripoff of Child's bestselling series. I am a long-time devotee of Jack Reacher's adventurers and there were times when I found it hard to remember I was not reading about a younger version of Reacher before he left the Army.

    The starship Lady Macbeth encounters a long-abandoned alien spacecraft, with its escape route still intact - but leading where? If the crew claims salvage rights, the technology inside could make them wealthy enough to buy planets. But first they need to make sure it's as empty as it seems.

    Billy says: "Narration was distracting"
    "Space garbage"
    Overall

    I love Peter Hamilton's books, and I have gobbled up the previous audio renditions with great gusto. But this is possibly the worse audio book of the century. The sound quality is beyond bad and the enactment with multiple voices doesn't work -- primarily because the actors are so bad. I won't comment on the story because the other stuff was so terrible I couldn't pay attention to anything else. Do not buy this audio. Audible should take it off the shelf.
