Jon Stanton is a reluctant police officer with strong moral fiber and a PhD in Psychology; not a combination likely to make him popular. The department he works in is rife with corruption at the same time a serial killer(s) set up shop in his town. He uncovers the corruption, maintains his integrity despite repeated attempts at compromise, but puts those around him at great risk. It is a fascinating ending for an unusual police story.
yes, with the twists and turns the author wove into a very believable story about an individual who had strong moral conviction and very poor financial security.
The book made me not want to shut it off until the end.
superbly written wonderfully told. this is what detective story's are supposed to be. Rebus sets the standard
the narrator makes the story. he makes you feel like you are in Scotland.
from the opening chapter this book grabs your attention and never let's go. superbly performed and very well written you will enjoy every minute of this text.
Very realistic. the authors did an excellent job presenting very authentic people. the story keeps your attention throughout.
LA Plante knows how to write murder mysteries. They hold your attention until the last sentence of the last paragraph. Hicks makes the story come alive. She makes it authentic.
There are not enough superlatives in the dictionary to describe how great this book is
Yes, it is very well written. This book blends SciFi with mystery/thriller in a way that makes the story entirely plausible while holding your attention and engaging you in the story. It keeps you on your toes by taking you to the very edge in multiple dangerous situation.
Ken has a virus placed in his head which prevents him from jacking into the web. He knows that if he interacts with the WWW, he releases the virus yet the virus, in his head, continues to try to trick him into making that connection.
Ken. Ken is a geek who is very sociable yet extremely smart.
NSA in the next 10 years.
If you like SciFi and you like thrillers, listen to this book. I hope Jeff writes another one.
Absolutely. The actors bring a dimension to this performance that cannot exist in the print version.
It reminded me of Tolkien's books. The key characters pass into an alternate dimension where they carry out their quest.
James McAvoy gives an outstanding performance. He is so believable.
Never read the print edition.
MacLean was the best thing about this story. Her accent make you feel like you are on the scene. She is perfect for this book; perfect for a great many books.
First time listener but it won't be the last. I would like to see her read many, many more books.
It turned out that way; not a feeling I had going in. But, MacLean makes you want to keep going.
Story starts slow. I was 4 hours in before I became caught up in the action. Stick with it and you will enjoy the listen.
Near the top. Reginald Hill is a top mystery writer. The problem with his stories is once you start listening to them, you can't stop.
Normally I would say the Daiziel & Pasco series but this is way different. Sort of a cross between Ian Fleming and Ian Rankin.
I have not - my loss. Keeble makes the book come alive. He has the accent and diction to make you feel like you are living the story.
I would not characterize the reaction as emotional. Rather I think of it as one that holds your interest. For example, the central character likes to rock climb but is an accomplished spy, assassin, and financier. Quite a combination of traits.
Once you start listening you will find it hard to stop. I would allow myself several hours to listen once I start the book.
