Once again Barclay has done it. It was a good story, kept me guessing and had good characters. What more can you ask for in a mystery? I think the best thing about Barclay is that you can start with any one of the books. They are not all centered around one detective or group of characters. They are all different and all good. This was the last one on Audible so Barclay better keep writing!
WOW! Vince Flynn delivered on this one. Great plot! Mitch is locked and ready to kill every terrorist in his sight, and maybe even a few who aren't. Not to give anything away, but something happens to Mitch and it is very interesting to see Mitch in this light...maybe a kinder, more gentle Mitch...Great story from start to finish. I didn't want this one to end.
Same narrator as the past books in recent years. I just love him. He plays Mitch so well!
Cute story. Easy listen. Definitely would appeal to high-techers out there of the Google generation. Not going to win "book of the year", but if you want a light mystery, enjoy books, and wonder about life as a googler, then you will enjoy this.
What a great book! John Corey is in a bad mood - exactly the way I like him! He is in a place he hates, hunting the Panther and is grumpy, grumpy, grumpy! His sarcasm makes me laugh out loud.
The story is fast paced, with twists and turns. Suspenseful - didn't want it to end. Nelson DeMille absolutely delivers once again!
It needed to be A LOT shorter. I have no idea why this book has received so many wonderful reviews. Are people's own lives so utterly boring that this trash spices it up? It wasn't even the subject matter. It was more that I found the main character, his lack of respect for women, his morals and values, and his attitude towards sex disgusting. I am not some prude when it comes to sex or sex as subject matter - this is about awful writing, narration and story line.
Not anything by this author
The narrator was so annoying. It was like listening to a 50 year old try to imitate a teeny-bopper. Like Oh MY God!
Christian was vile. Anyone who found him remotely appealing needs their head examined.
I can't even currently think of a book I liked less. That was hours of my life I can never get back.
I fell in love with every character right down to the dog! Great story! Good mystery with a nice romantic story tied in. I cheered for the main character to overcome everything! I laughed out loud at times and was sitting on the edge of my seat at other parts. Great narrator! I defy you to find one bad thing about this book! Put it on your summer reading list! One of Nora Robert's BEST!
As anyone who listens frequently, you know a narrator can make or break an audiobook. This narrator broke it. The story is interesting to the point I think it makes you want to know what happens. I feel like there was over-development of characters such as the main character's daughter Megan, but not enough development of her step-daughter who enters the book with the shocking news and then disappears for the rest of the book until the end. There were a lot of stories going on within the story at times and it made the book feel disjointed at times. Not one of my favs by her, but not the worst either.
It sounded like the recording was uneven. I found myself adjusting the volume a lot. I have never had to do that before with an Audiobook. I loved having Garry Marshall tell his story as the narrator however if you aren't used to listening to a very thick NY accent, you may have a hard time with it.
He has had a fascinating life. He knows everyone, and is one of the biggest players in Hollywood, however is very, very down to earth. There aren't any Hollywood shockers or scandals disclosed, but a real life, honest glimpse into a powerhouse's life. It is a good listen.
It is a fast paced legal thriller the way The Firm by Grisham was. You are not sure why this is being done to this lawyer...why he is being singled out...I would recommend this book to anyone looking for a well done legal thriller that will keep you guessing.
Poor guy...Just a car salesman dealing with a teenage, slight rebel of a daughter who comes to spend the summer with him and vanishes. It follows his search for his daughter and you do not know who is friend and who is foe with the introduction of each character. Barclay can do no wrong. I am a new, but HUGE fan!
What a great story! Your regular family, going about their business until tragedy strikes in their neighborhood and their son is a suspect. The mystery is good and you follow the family in an emotional and financial race to find out what happened to the family next door. If you haven't tried Barclay, this is a great one to start with. You will be hooked.
