This is a good mystery, where the possible pepetrators keep changing throughout the book. I felt that this one had Elvis having more of Joe Pike's personality due to the the narrator's presentation. It is a little darker, not the sprightly Elvis Cole of other books. Still a great story, just a different presentation.
This is a great summer read! A combination of a mystery/suspense thriller and a romantic mystery-- something for everyone and a nice, light listen for the heat of the summer. In general, little if any language -- even a teenager could listen to this and not be offended -- they probably hear worse at school! The mystery unravels slowly, intertwined with other events, all intriguing. It made me want to find other books by Ms. Adler!
OK -- so I like the Presidential Agent series -- but really -- the first 2 segments of this audio book are an intense recap of previous P-A novels. And then in the 3rd segment, we whip through what's happening so quickly, you want to play it back, because you thought you missed something. It is a really good, interesting story, but the first part goes very slow and the last part goes incredibly fast -- it is somewhat schizophenic. Don't get me wrong -- if you like the P-A series -- you will probably like this, but be prepared for it to switch from low-gear to hi-gear without much notice. W.E.B. could have edited some of the recaps of previous stories and added a few more details of the current story line -- which would have resulted in a more even story line.
