Excellent reporting. Obviously a lot of hard work by the author to choose the puzzle pieces that fit and put forth a credible narrative.
Leonardo, what a smooth fella; other people have compared this heist to Ocean's Eleven, if so, Clooney would play him.
No characters were dramatized.
The close to perfect crime.
I am a fan of true crime and this is one of the best that I've read or listened to.
Yes, overall, enjoyed the story but was disappointed that the loose ends were never tied up and, in fact, led into another title.
Don't have a favorite.
Might not if they told me upfront that it was part of a serial
Might shy away from Patterson after this, very disappointed that even though they major plots were satisfied there were still unresolved narratives.
Depended on the friend, I might have reservations.
Shorten it, too many unnecessary elements. Ending could be made more believable
Can't think of one
This book sunk the hook pretty quickly and I like that but it could have moved along at a brisker pace. The ending was difficult to swallow.
I listened to this on the strength of someone recommending Bankok 8 which I listened to later. I found this to be superior and thoroghly enjoyed both. If you ever thought of going to Thailand this is a must. Themes helped put our western morality judgments in perspective. The narration is great.
I was disappointed in this Parker novel. After enjoying the Spencer series I expected more. I felt that the characters were poorly developed (did the recovering alcoholic have any problem with the tall scotch and soda he was sipping?) and the ending contrived.
Daniel Silva wraps action advenure, mystery and recent history into an entertaining listen. His Israeli Mossad characters expose the horror of the Holocaust using fictional modern day events. The narration is reserved and sets an excellent tone for the theme.
I'm a big fan of Michael Connely but I didn't think that this held up as well as his Harry Bosch series. I may have missed something but I never understood why the bad guy hated the hero so much. Also, the ending was too convenient.
This was difficult to listen to. I was certainly interested in the topic and the author had done the homework but the timeline was scattered and tough to follow. The reader made the subject more dry than it should be.
Convenient and disappointing ending but I don't know how he would have ended the book otherwise. Hoping for something more.
