Now I'm ready to delve into the series. I almost always like Scott Brick's narration (yes, there have been some exceptions), so that's what prompted me to try a new (for me) author. It was a good move.
I am now a font of (not so) useless information! Mr. Fahrenheit and Mr. Celsius and their respective thermometers...who knew? I'm ready for "Jeopardy".
Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy. Got a kick out of part of the story being set in the tiny town where I live currently. The descriptions were even accurate. Like the "toy" maker premise. Just wasn't enough to equal a more-than-mediocre read.
All the "good guys" are gorgeous and rich. The "bad guys" are ugly slugs. All ends happily for the the "good guys".
I think I've read (and/or listened to) everything by Steve Berry. I always look forward to the next book.
Got this on a whim. Turned out to be a real treat. Without giving anything away, let me say Christopher Lane was perfect. Think I would have listened to the entire book just to hear his narration.
It's nowhere near the worst mystery to which I've listened. The plot line gets unnecessarily convoluted. It's much like "Mad Magazine's" Spy vs. Spy. Scott Brick made the listen tolerable.
I was lured in by the fact the author once lived near Robert Ames and his family. I thought there would be much in the way of first-hand and intimate (no...not THAT kind of intimate) information. Nothing of the sort. DIdn't finish the book.
The best was saved for last. The rest were in the mediocre to "I-saw-that-coming-a-mile-away". I always fall for these and hope that some day one will really be worth the listen from start to finish.
It amazes me that two men, one with a 30-inch inseam and the other with a 36-inch inseam, can both wear a third man's trousers and have them fit...
P.S. Did this story end abruptly or what?
