    First, the unthinkable: a security breach at a secret U.S. government facility unleashes the monstrous product of a chilling military experiment. Then, the unspeakable: a night of chaos and carnage gives way to sunrise on a nation, and ultimately a world, forever altered. All that remains for the stunned survivors is the long fight ahead and a future ruled by fear—of darkness, of death, of a fate far worse.

    Overall

    ... in my head. The characters are exceptionally well developed and the plot zips its listener from one mysterious (or frightening) situation to another without losing focus. I finished this book about a month ago and am still thinking about some of its underlying themes. I LOVED it! I had not previously read Justin Cronin, but I certainly will now!

    Story
    Where does Crusader's Cross rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's at the top of the list ... as are ALL of the Dave Robicheaux books recorded by Will Patton.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Dave. And Clete's right behind ... and sometimes a little ahead. The characters are so real, and Burke's philosophy rings so true, and the atmosphere he creates ... I suppose that if you've never lived in South Louisiana, you might not believe it. But Burke's voice tells it like it is.


    Any additional comments?

    PLEASE request that Will Patton re-record the Dave Robicheaux books 1-13. The other narrators just didn't get it; words were mispronounced and though an attempt at the regional dialect was made, it wasn't achieved. Patton's narration is so superior that I'd purchase them again.
