Absolutely! The book has non-stop action, lots of twists and turns, and all the escape scenes are quite believable. I judge the quality of a book by how long it takes me to get through it. This book had me listening at every opportunity including the middle of the night-- just couldn't put it down. Took three days from start to finish. That makes it a five star book for me.
I had several favorite characters, but John heads the list. A hero from the same mold as Jack Reicher and others like him.
Julie Carson tops the list. Orlagh does a great job in bringing her to life.
The book evoked strong emotions in support of the plight of those caught up in today's slavery trade.
Although I love Baldacci's books, I almost didn't buy this book because of the negative reviews of several readers who criticized the sound effects, and the poor and rapid speed narration of Orlagh Cassidy. For me, nothing could be further from the truth. I loved having the male and female parts read by two different people, and found Orlagh's performance to be spot on.
