I mix my books from serious to SEALs to fantasy. This was a light book which I enjoyed and would recommend.
When I first started reading Clancey I read a review of his research and ability to take public information to produce a dead-on story very close to the truth. Think his insight was deemed uncanny. Sometimes I get very uncomfortable reading him because I find myself running smack-dab into a wall of reality. This is no different as all or most of the book has been reflected in the news. China hacks into "unhackable" agencies with top level security. It's happening now. That's the tip of the iceburg.
Mark Greaney is one of my favorites and I think he partners well with Clancey.
And what a wonderful narrator Lou Diamond Phillips is. He pulls it all together with that melodious voice and command of accents.
For me, a top notch listen!
This wasn't my favorite Jane Whitefield story but it was still an enjoyable listen. Realized once I got into it that I read this ages back. Enough time not to remember all so that didn't spoil the story. It just seemed to drag a bit in the first half. I would still recommend it. The tactics are always interesting as are the stories, some more than others. I remain a Perry fan.
This one didn't really flow for me. There were times it seemed that the "Club" just got slapped in here and there. Not an awful listen, just not what I expect from Baldacci.
The characters were interesting, the setting was interesting. It entertained me while I worked in the yard. But it has a tad of "chick flick" thing going. "Chick listen"? Nothing overwhelming and I'd certainly recommend if for sitting on the porch with nothing to do. No real brain power required but sometimes that's exactly what you don't want to exert.
This sort of thing is everywhere. It makes you wonder if it will ever stop. How many profilers are out there trying to find the perfect approach to protecting children in school. It's mind blowing to know that children are massacring other children in schools. Although this is a novel, it's just too close to reality. I enjoyed the listen but now and then it made me cringe.
I haven't read the entire series but I like DD Warren. And the narration is so great, perfect for the stories. And spooky these are. I never spend much time trying to figure out the end of the story. That just spoils it for me. So I meander along, around each crazy corner and enjoy the book for great entertainment.
This and "The Neighbor" are great books to relax and enjoy. "I know something you don't know......"
Interesting reading. If I were planning an alternate life I imagine some of these books would have a few pointers. But not just that. I find Jane a most likable character and a great deal more patient than I. So at times I find myself in the middle of my own dialogue while listening to the Perry books. Somewhat crazy I guess. I hope so.
This was a fun surprise first in a series. Enjoyed the story, good narration and characters. The story group is a step to the left of normal with open minded approaches to unyielding methods which other law enforcement agencies have employed for ages. Unique is always most intriguing.
And held my attention throughout the book. Definitely interesting and a roller coaster ride. Rufus Harms is a great character along with the "supporting cast". Pictures of The Green Mile popped in my head when I started but no flies on Harms.
I really enjoyed this and would definitely recommend it.
This didn't mesh story and narrator for me. I kept getting distracted, going back then distracted again. It almost seemed like the book was a little too long. A young man going after the President (among other things) really taxed my imagination much less my sense of reason. Too little too late or too much something else.
I will of course continue to read Hurwitz but hopefully not along these lines.
