I'm on the fence with this book. I like Richard North Patterson books. But I thought this book was a bit slow. It's about a murder that took place in the spire years earlier. And an innocent man is in jail. Darrow becomes an excellent attorney. He used to be friends with the man who's in jail now for the murder of the girl, who was found in the spire. Something about the murder bothers Darrow, so he gets help to open the case up again. So the story begins almost 1/3 way into the book.
I have no complaints about the narrator, he did a good job.
Baldacci has written a roller coaster ride of a book. A professional couple get caught up in a conspiracy. Sidney Archer a criminal attorney and her husband Jason Archer a young executive at Triton Global. Become the escape goats for stolen money, murder, and selling company secrets. If you are a technology geek, you maybe disappointed. The technology used in the story is a bit outdated. Ex: (Some of the characters are using pay phones).
Where I'm from the are almost non-existent, except for airports :) and using floppy disks. I don't know when was the last time I've seen one of those.)
If you don't mind that the book is a bit outdated with tech terminology, then you will enjoy the book.
The narrator Jonathan Marosz was okay, I think Scott Brick or Ron McLarty would have been a better choice.
Over all I still enjoyed the book.
This was my first time listening to a financial thriller. It was informative, & easy to follow. This book is about Bernie" Madoff, a former stockbroker, investment advisor, financier, and white collar criminal. Who created the biggest Ponzi scheme in HISTORY!!! The scheme affected 41 countries and worth $65 BILLION dollars. How the F.C.C. was fore warned time and time again, to become grossly incompetent. And how its still affecting people and companies today.
Scott Brick has narrated another good book. Along with the actual characters of the book.
First I want to say is, I really enjoyed this audio book. If your looking for a true crime book with several stories. Try this one out. The narrator Joe Barrett gives life to the cases written.There are so many words to describe this audio book, educational, informative, and a Eye Opener. John Douglas Retired F.B.I.agent and profiler, has written a book about several cases and trials told from different points of view. It starts with the trials in Salem, Massachusetts and ends with the Amanda Know trial in Italy.
This book is about how innocent people are put in prison or on death row for mishandling forensics and witnesses. And how some judges will ALLOW CRACK POT testimony! After listening to this book, It honestly scares me that these people are in a position of power. Till the day of today.
Jacob is a resident at a hospital with a wife and 3 children. But Jacob has a secret, he comes from a polygamist family. Jacob does not hold the same beliefs. And then the F.B.I. comes calling for his help. He agrees do become an informant. While doing his civic duty, his wife gets thrown out on the streets, the senator is after his(Jacob) family. Now Jacob has to pick up the pieces of his life.
The story is about Mormon polygamists, Mormon non- polygamists, a murder, and a man calling himself a prophet. The narrator did a good job with the story. The book was suspenseful, and educational. If your looking for something different, I suggest the Might and Strong.
I thought I read all of Dean Koontz books. Then I came across Fear Nothing. As usual Koontz know how to keep you wanting more. Unless your a Koontz fan, you may not want to listen to this book. If you are a Koontz fan, I suggest that you listen to this one. Christopher Snow has XP xeroderma pigmentosum. light-sensitivity so severe that he cannot leave his house in daylightI And his special dog Orson who is almost human. After his father dies, he stumbles across a man who's eyes where gauged out. And his adventure begins. It's about military experiments. And how his mother had something to do with it. He can't trust no one, but Orson. This book was fun and entertaining.
The narrator Keith Szarabajka did a good job with this book.
This was my first time reading a Patricia Gussin novel. It's a good suspense book. It's not your typical kidnapping. It's about identical triplets, and there bond to each other. How one sense's what the other may be going through.Even though there are identical triplets, each one is different from the other. You don't know who kidnapped the girls until 3/4 of the book. I can't say who kidnapped the girls. It will give away the " Who Done It". I would suggest this book.
The narrator did a good job with this novel.
The book is very informative on all types of disease and bio war fare. How it can spread from person to person. The only reason I did not give a book a 5 star rating. It was a bit drawn out. But if you like medical thrillers it's not bad.
If you never read a Lisa Scottoline book, I suggest to read this one. Even though it's a suspense book, it's about family, love, and perverseness. Jill's ex-husband suspiciously dies. And his daughter Abby is the only one who thinks he was murdered. Abby turns to Jill for help. But Abby sister has become distant with her ex-step-mom, (for many reasons). Maggi Meg Reed the narrator does a great job.
This book is about courage, patients, and being a survivor. The heroin in this story is Elizabeth alias Abigale. She decides to rebel against her controlling mother. And her decision changes her life forever. Twelve years later she is still on the run and meets Sheriff Brooks. Who becomes her love interest. This book has a little bit of everything, suspense, love, action, and courage.
The narrator Julia Whelan did an awesome job. This is a great book to listen to. I would definitely recommend it.
