Very well read and holds your interest. About 3/4 of the way in it starts to get improbable and the end is a bit ridiculous. Obviously there will be another book to follow. You could do worse, I just wish it finished up as well as it started.
Too much time spent with basically nothing happening. Accelerated at the end, but then just kind of ended quickly.
As usual, Scot Brick is the best narrator I have heard in any story.
I would say yes if you are a fan of the John Corey series. But previous titles in the series are better.
I can't say it was a bad book, but I never found myself eagerly awaiting the next chapter or sitting in my car because I could not stop listening. In fact I would go days without listening and listen to some podcasts instead on my drive. With that in mind, I know this was not one of the better books I have listened to.
I found myself wanting to keep listening, which is always a good sign.
I enjoyed the overall unfolding of the story. The end is pretty wild and definitely keeps you wanting to listen for what comes next.
Don't want to give anything away so I won't comment here.
Not what I usually listen to, but enjoyable nonetheless. Well read by the narrator.
I bought this as it was recommended by Audible, I suppose because I like Michael Connelly stories. Really interesting story with a lawyer angle, it kept me wanting to keep listening and stay in the car, and listen very time I was in the car. It doesn't get better than that for me.
Different from other DeMille stories (Wildfire, Lion's Game), but very enjoyable. DO NOT read the description of the sequel, The Gate House, on Audible as they give away the ending of The Gold Coast. Why they do that I have no idea.
I used to think a 6 hour book was long enough, but I've grown accustomed to listening to longer unabridged works. With that in mind, I could practiclly hear the scissors cutting this one down. And I also was slightly disappointed in how the trail was hiked (I don't want to give anything away). That said, it was very enjoyable and entertaining, well read, funny and informational. I'd really enjoy an unabridged version.
This is a good story read perfectly by Scott Brick. Some of the story line is almost scary considering it was pre-9/11. I found it hard to stop listening. It was intiguing, moved along well, and was at times laugh out loud funny because of the personality of the main character *as well as how it was performed). I was wary of the 20 hour length, but I figured a month of commuting on 1 story was worth a try. Glad I did. Contrary to another review, I thought the detective work made sense. Sure it may have seemed sometimes obvious to the listener, but we were getting the view from both characters. I highly recommend this.
