    The Condition tells the story of the McKotches, a proper New England family that comes apart during one fateful summer. One day on the beach, Frank McKotch is struck by an image he cannot forget: his 13-year-old daughter, Gwen, strangely infantile in her child-sized bikini, standing a full head shorter than her younger cousin Charlotte. At that moment, he knows a truth that he can never again unknow: something is terribly wrong with his only daughter.

    Overall

    I believe I chose this book from one of Audible's "best" lists, which I feel are fairly worthwhile for me. But in this case this book didn't measure up--at least for me. I thought the plot was pretty contrived and nothing more than a soap opera. It's not that these people or plot weren't believable, but I didn't really care to get to know them or their issues. I finished, but was glad to go on to my next listen.

    Roger Brown is a corporate headhunter, and he’s a master of his profession. But one career simply can’t support his luxurious lifestyle and his wife’s fledgling art gallery. At an art opening one night he meets Clas Greve, who is not only the perfect candidate for a major CEO job, but also, perhaps, the answer to his financial woes: Greve just so happens to mention that he owns a priceless Peter Paul Rubens painting that’s been lost since World War II - and Roger Brown just so happens to dabble in art theft.

    Story

    I enjoy Jo Nesbo, and have listened to most of the Harry Hole series. Did particularly enjoy the humor in Headhunters--there were times when I was smirking, and exclaiming outloud on the bus as I listened. Held my interest all they way through. Have heard that some take exception to some assertions....physics, and prime numbers etc.....maybe, but that doesn't take away from a really enjoyable listen...
