Following on another reviewer's comments. Bought this in an Audible series promotion. Just wanted an escapist thriller and quickly found myself listening to a set up for the second coming of Christ. Would never have bought this if I had known what it really was. Stopped listening when I realized and checked the reader reviews. Audible should list it in their faith novels and let people know. Unfortunately, I got sucked into the sale and didn't take time to read a review of this book before I purchased it. I loathe phoney faith books.
Interesting concept using two detectives of different nationalities, who love each other, but have to deal with restrictions and blockages of the Chinese government. New approach to political interventions in crime.
Well written. A good story which gives you additional things to think about.
It's a good story, fast paced with great characters. This is a fun escape. Keeps you going. Rich language and descriptions. Wronged man escapes island prison hell, finds fabulous treasures, lives incredible life-style, rescues victims, revenge against bad guys.
One of my favorite characters was the paralyzed grandfather. He can only move his eyes, but speaks with them in signals to his grand-daughter. But he is a power figure with a secret and saves his grand-daughter. Don't want to spoil it, but it's very imaginative. First described as helpless, but then . . .
Excellent reader. Wonderful voice, a pleasure to listen to. The florid language and descriptions flow. Excellent pronunciation. All the characters are presented with accents appropriate to their nationality and background. Great vocal characterization. Keeps up the pace of the story and carries you along.
This is the bedtime story that will keep you awake and listening longer, make you forget you're waiting too long wherever you're stuck. Just relax, unwind and have some listening fun.
