I enjoyed this book tremendously. Some of it made me cringe, but I always wanted to listen more. I must agree, however, with some other reviewers: it definitely should not say Alex Cross in the title. Although Abraham Cross is an interesting character, the story is not much about him. I was looking for an Alex Cross as I have heard they are good. Now I wonder if the author & publisher can be trusted.
My first by this author and narrator. At first I did not like all the description and I did not like the narrator. After a couple of hours, I was very glad I kept with it. Good story, the narration grew on me, and even the abundant description didn't irk me. During the last 3 hours, I had a hard time turning it off to get back to work .
This was my second by Craig Johnson and George Guidall. Johnson writes great stories and Guidall brings them to a very lively telling. At first I wasn't sure I was going to like this as much as I did "Dark Horse," but soon I was every bit as involved in the story and found myself putting off chores and listening longer than I planned.
The pace of the book is somehow perfect. No time to get bored waiting for something to happen. The narration works very well. This was my first by Craig Johnson, and I've already listened to another ("Cold Dish") that I also enjoyed immensely. Johnson and Guidall -- great team.
I've listened to many of DeMille and loved them. I did not believe a DeMille could be as bad as some other reviewers said. I was wrong. I stopped listening after 4 or 5 hours. Too boring.
This is my first Connelly book and I am very glad to have found him. The last hour and a half I could not stop listening. Grupper is a terrific narrator. I hope to hear him again on future books. I will listen to more by Connelly.
