I am a HUGE fan of Preston & Child and their Pendergast series. I finished this one only because I am such a big fan and Rene Auberjonois is such a master narrator. I will certainly buy the next book in the series - but if it is as far off the mark as this one is, it will be my last. The reviews on this book, which I read the other day, long after I'd purchased mine since I had it on auto-purchase, were clearly wildly mixed. Some love it and others are feeling like I do - pretty disappointed. I won't go into all the craziness that was in this book, but suffice it to say that it didn't live up to everyone's expectations for what we want from our favorite FBI agent (and those who write about him).
I always like to listen to the first in a series when I realize a book is part of a series and I'm glad I started here. I will continue right on to the next one this weekend!
This was a good one and I'm willing to try another. A few parts dragged toward the end but overall, it was good enough that I'm interested in another from this series.
For whatever reason, this one just sat in my library until I finally thought, "Well, I'll give it a try." It was outstanding! I want more of David McCullough's books and Edward Hermann's narration was just right! THANKS for the story and the history.
I certainly kept listening but boy, oh, boy...did I wish there were some likeable characters. There weren't. Overall, worth listening to and I'll read/listen to more of Robotham's books. Going to look for some right now.
The previous two books were excellent but somehow, this one was even better! Apparently Bruce DeSilva is getting better and better and Liam Mulligan and the people around him - and the stories they're involved in - are more and more interesting. Keep writing! THANK YOU for a great story. The narrator is perfect for these books. Thankful they've kept Jeff Woodman for all the books.
Keep writing, Bruce. Keep narrating, Jeff. EXCELLENT! Mulligan is smart and interesting and different from the way I sometimes expect him to be. I hope this series continues for at least 5 or 6 books!
OUTSTANDING and am thrilled that there are now two more in the series. Just downloaded #2 and am starting to listen tonight! Perfect narrator!
GREAT! I loved her and the story and the narrator. I am downloading Book 2 in this series right now and hope that Book 3, which is already written, is recorded this week!!
Huge Lincoln Rhyme & Jeffery Deaver fan. I'll buy the next one in the series but if it's not better, then I'll give up. The last couple just haven't been anywhere near as good as the earlier ones. I like the characters but if you didn't know the characters, this book would be completely disjointed. I'll remain hopeful, however.
HUGE Jonathan Stride fan, but this one was not his best in this series. I'll still buy the next one though. some good parts, no question, but it just didn't hold me like the others have. Still worth a credit.
