My father was in the Navy during WW II and was the Supply Officer on a transport ship that was torpedoed, but not sunk. PT Deutermann is a for real Navy veteran writing about what he knows and it comes accross beautifully in his novels. My wife and I have listened to and enjoyed his novels as we drive on various road trips.
PT Deuterman always weaves a fast paced story with subject matter that he has researched to make it believable. The nuclear industry material in this story had to be tempered, but the author made it into a great yarn, as he always does.
Yes, with many plot twists. Unlike some reviewers I liked the detail, and never felt that the story bogged down in any way.
While not Dick Hill, I would put him in that calibre of narrator - very enjoyable! My big reason for listening to books is so that I can multitask - like driving, painting, etc. This does not work for everyone....
No extreme reaction - just fit in nicely with the rest of the series - and my wife and I have listened to all PTD's books!
A fun read (do I hear 'Hardy Boys" for adults?), and just what we like for escape reading - and we like PT's attitude about the decline of the USA. Hope that can be reversed....
The Copper Bracelet, each chapter written by a different author, is a great sequel to "The Chopin Manuscript" and we look forward to more "serial thrillers". What a brilliant concept.
My wife and I listen to our audio books while driving and frequently pause the book to discuss some aspect of what we are hearing. The Chopin Manuscript and it's sequel were so wonderfully outrageous that we would exclaim at the end of each chapter at what that author was passing on to the next one. What delightful writing and narration. You are in for a real treat!
