James Patterson has gone in a number of directions in the past several novels.With 14th Century jesters and flying children as recent protagonists it's easy to miss his old characters. With this latest, Alex Cross returns in a new role as a rookie FBI agent.Having been lured away from his Washington PD job by an FBI Director who wants to change the status quo at the Bureau, Cross returns to the pages in the orientation class at Quantico. Balancing his family life with the professional skill and curiosity that draws him inevitably into the crosshairs of the most recent villian, Cross is the same character with whom we have grown comfortable.
Another fast paced novel, expertly narrated by a team of performers , who keep you sitting in the car long after you have arrived at your destination as you wait for the chapter to end. It is an exciting ride, with a setup for more.
This is my first listen to the authors work. It is a riveting tale, without question. The narrator Dick Hill, is, quite clearly, a one man ensemble who acts, not reads, the parts of the characters. I have listened to him before in multiple genre's and I now search for him and assume the authors will be worthy. You will not be disappointed with this book.
The narrator has done a great job with this book. The story is excellent. The use of language steals the show for anyone who appreciates english written and spoken well.
OK I like W.E.B. Griffen's work. This is a great story. The characters are well developed. It's a continuation of previous stories. The star of this is the narrator. The characters are from eastern europe, Russia, Argentina and Uraguay. Each character has a distinct accent absolutely brought to life by the narrator. I am really quite amazed at his skill. If you value the "performance" as much as the story you'll love this one.
