Good story, good narration. When I need a good listen an have nothing lined up, sure I would listen to this again
I really like this new series. Sullivan is proving himself to be included with authors like Ben Coes, Mark Greaney etc. the books have complex plots with many curves along the way and once solved , the conclusion is not the end, that's when hidden agendas are revealed. GREAT!!
Brian Haig is such a talented author. His books are so indepth, multifaceted and detail oriented. His books may not always adhere to the comfort level of the masses but his subject plots are realistic and very believable.
I thought Christopher Lane did a fine job. I prefer Scott Brick for Mr. Haig's books but I thought this narrator did a good job.
I have missed this author so much and periodically check his name to see if he has written anything new, always disappointed when there is nothing. This was such a total surprise and I am so glad I found it. I hope that he will be writing again with more frequency. This book touches on some very taboo subjects including incest, torture of prisoners (like what happened at Guantanamo) with some variations. There is also some unrequited love, deviant behavior and murder (and boy does the ending knock your socks off!!). This is one ending I did not see coming. If you have read/listened to any of the Drummond books in the past this one will certainly be a surprise. If you haven't listened to this series before this still makes a fantastic stand alone. Bravo Brian Haig! Can you PLEASE write another one soon?
Just a note: If you haven't read The Hunted you are really missing a well written extraordinary story that is based on a true story that is so bizarre it read like fiction. One of the best books I have ever read.
With 600+ books in my library this one would be in my top 100 and that's saying a lot.
If I didn't know better I would have thought I was listening to a Frank Quinn book by John Lutz who is one of my favorites.
If you're a Lutz fan this is a book you will really like. Graphic at times but this is a story with a really good in depth plot. Both the antagonist and protagonist are multilayered with multiple subplots (but not so many that it gets confusing). I also like that you don't know who the killer is until the end. As his story unfolds it is reminiscent of many serial murderers that have been in past headlines and follows his path in life from childhood torture of animals and the adults who missed it but could have put a stop to his escalation into depravity as so often happens in real life. I will definitely go back and get the other three books in this series. I Highly RECOMMEND this book! This one is truly worthy of your credit. If you are anything like me you guard these closely, this one is worth it...
Braden Wright does a fantastic job with the Jet books especially considering that the main protagonist in these books is a female. He does a very believable performance.
I have enjoyed ALL of the Jet books. This one like the others is fast paced and full of action. My only gripe is that they are not long enough. Jet is like a cross between The Gray Man and Wonder Woman, this book we learn that she is certified to fly a helicopter and can perform some pretty amazing stunts with it even though it's been years and she was unsure of her skills. Ok, it requires a little suspension of common sense but it you're looking for some exciting and thrilling entertainment then you've come to the right place. I highly recommend this book.
This is a good fast paced book. Nonstop bad luck the whole way through.
Yes it certainly did! This book moves right along starting from probably the first 10 minutes or so and doesn't stop the whole way through.
Surprisingly I did! For most of the story I did not, I found some of it to be a little far fetched. How much and how many things can happen to one man in a day? This guy just went from one situation to another. Like I said, it was entertaining. Anyway back to the question. The final scene did give me such a melancholy feeling, I was so surprised! I love when a book has a great ending...
If you're on the fence- get the book. It is a little different then the typical rainy day nothing to read, short on attention span book in that our hero isn't such a hero but a rather shady character himself and at times not too likable. He is shockingly redeemable giving it this memorable ending.
If I didn't know better while listening to this I would swear this sounded like a Mary Higgins Clark book. Good, fast paced with no down time, slightly predictable but thrilling just the same.
Joyce Bean did a very good job narrating this book. With her repertoire of voices the characters are easily distinguishable, including the male voices.
You know who the killer is from the beginning but there are a few scenes and characters you know are making some really bad choices setting themselves up as the perfect victim. With trepidation they walk right into a trap. Some of them you really want to survive. The book does require some suspension of common sense as far as law enforcement procedurals go but this is fiction and is entertaining, definitely worth the price. I would recommend this and will probably read more by this author.
Yes. This is a pretty good easy book to listen to. Fast paced with multiple concurrent stories.
In the beginning of the book you find out what happened to Jarred (I won't spoil this) but it left me wondering throughout the book how it would conclude.
Kate Rudd has read all of the Lizzy Gardner books and for me anyway she is her voice. I think she did a fine job.
I thought this was very good and suspenseful. I like that the pace was consistent through out the book. I think I liked the last book a little better but that might be because this one was a little sad at times. I think I can see where the author is going with the next story or possibly the one after and am curious to find out if I'm right. I think Lizzy is going to get involved with the detective she always seems to butt heads with but I guess I'll have to wait to find out. I also liked that Haley and Kitally's characters were developed even more and that they are developing their own story lines. Certainly worth the price! I recommend this one.
This was just a very good book. Excellent story. Unlikable antagonist with a mission I think anyone can relate to if in the same situation (which I won't spoil). So even though I didn't like him I did find myself wanting him to complete his mission.
The only other books I have listened to Johnny Peppers narrate are the other books in this series and I think he does a fine job.
YES! But I couldn't so it took me two days.
I REALLY enjoyed this book. What is nice about this series is that they can be listened to as stand alone books. I listened out of order and enough of the previous books are covered so that the listener doesn't feel like something is missing. I think of all this one was the best of the series. There is much more character development as compared to the others where there was a good story but not much personality given to the main characters. This book was fast paced, high tension with very little down time. The end is very satisfying and you feel like every now and then there is justice even if only in a book! I highly recommend this one.
New author (to me), old concept with a new twist. Great characters. Totally took me by surprise.
This is the first time I've listened to Johnny Peppers. I thought he did a good job.
This was a totally unexpected surprise. It was on a list of books that I might like based on previous purchases. I usually ignore those because I rarely find anything I like with their suggestions. So this one turned out to be a real page turner. It has Feds gone bad, one is blackmailed by another who served prison time for stealing evidence and selling it. Others antaganists who feel the justice system has done them and their family wrong, and the there is the protagonist (Mac) and his team of Super Cops trying to save the lives of two kidnapped college students who have been buried alive, one who is a diabetic. You know the kidnappers have no intention of letting them go. Wow, this story is put together! Lots of clues along the way, it's a race right up to the last chapter. I really enjoyed this and Highly Recommend it.
Maybe if I didn't have a new book waiting to be read/listened to.
This was just a really good story! The premise is one that I don't think I've come across before in this context. Secret research facility, kidnapped scientists, can't say anymore or I'll give too much away.
There was nothing about Dick Hill's performance not to like, he's one of the BEST (according to me).
Chris Kuzneski has just released three books in the Payne & Jones series that are all FIVE STAR books. Each has a unique story line and can be read as part of the series or as stand alones. These are the best of the series. Really good complex multilayered plots, plenty of action and some background history between the two protagonists is filled in along with some of Payne's personal history. He learned that his father was responsible for some financial backing of medical breakthroughs and had known some very impressive/important people. Again I don't want to give names because I don't want to spoil this for anyone. I highly recommend all three, they are worth the credits!
I have over 500 books in my Audible library so that would be a hard question BUT I would have to say this is defiantly in the top 1/3 of my favorites.
Oh yes. It begins with a phone call to Payne from an acquaintance saying that he believes a friend of his (Pieter Ulster) relative may have been a Nazi sympathizer. This is based on a few trunks containing valuables from that period with the Ulster family crest. Of course this turns out not to be the case but the race is on to find some missing treasure before someone else (a bad guy) does.
Dick Hill brings his impressively talented voices. He is a favorite of mine and I could listen to him all day.
This was such a good book. I thoroughly enjoy Chris Kuzneski's Payne & Jones series. If you like the Primal series or Jonathan Quinn and his bantering with Nate then you will enjoy this book. Kind of paramilitary, fast paced super hero stunts that are not always 100% within the legal parameters but completely exhilarating just the same. Anyway this book has a great ending that brings P. Ulster full circle with his families past. Super book, highly recommended!
