Dick Hill is PERFECT for this book. He brings his experience from Child, Deutermann, Griffen and others. His many voices and accents add depth to the characters you would not get from reading.
This is an Excellent debut novella. Fast paced, clearly written and easy to follow story line. Character origins are defined and are believable. I am looking forward to another exciting new series.
I prefer Dick Hill for the Greg Iles books but this narrator is much better then the one who read Natchez Burning!
This is such a good book that deserves to be listened to in it's full unabridged length. There are so many plot twists and great characters to fill the 20 hours of listening time. This book also fills in background on the characters for the other Penn Cage novels. I highly recommend The Quiet Game.
This book was really good and would fall in the top half of my books as opposed to the bottom.
I thought Kate Rudd did a fine job narrating. Although sometimes a little whiney, I can picture the character she is performing being the same.
OMG the END! I will not say more.
I think this was the best in the Lizzy Gardner series. Great plot, characters fleshed out, backgrounds filled in and a really twisted seriel killer who is OBSESSED. If you listened to the first 3 in the series and liked them, then there is no reason to even hesitate for a moment. This is certainly worth the $.
Probably if I didn't have anything else lined up or needed something short while I was waiting for a release.
Yes and no. When the story began the listener can kind of predict how it's going to end however it the getting there that does throw some twists into this story.
Basil Sands is perfect for this story line. I had never listened to him before the Graves series but now think of Jonathan Graves as soon as I hear his voice.
This is a really good novella. It gives some background information on the relationship between Graves, Dom, Irene and Boxers. It also shows why Irene/Wolverine calls on Graves and allows or encourages him to do what he does even when it doesn't always comply with the law. But, he's "on the side of the angels"!
This one would be in my top half. With about 500 books in my library so far it is hard to place any single book.
I really like Basil Sands reading the Jonathan Graves books, much better then the narrator who reads the first two of the series. His cadence when reading is perfect for the character.
Yes! I listened to it in One Day!
I think John Gilstrap did a Great job with this book. His writing style has really evolved since his first book and he has brought so much more personality to his characters. In this book Boxer has become more vocal, he reminds me now of Dox from the John Rain series by Eisler. I don't want to spoil the story for anyone but if you're on the fence about this book, get off the fence and get the book! I personally think it is the best one in the series.
Partly because I think this is the first sequel I've seen to any of Linwood Barclay's books and I'm familiar with the characters of a previous EXCELLENT book.
Yes and I can't say how or it might ruin it for the next listener. All I can say is if you listened to No Time For Goodbye (and really liked it) then you will Love this one. If you haven't read the previous then this is still a good stand alone.
They did a Great narrating job together. Voices complimented the other and having 2 made a distinction between opposing characters.
Very good book. I've been looking forward to Linwood Barclay writing another since his las (Tap on the Window) and this did not disappoint. I've listened to everything he's done on Audible a this one does not disappoint.
Not a lot of edge of your seat suspense. I think it could have been. Dragged a but in places but still entertaining.
I think Jim Meskimen did a very good performance. I've never listened to anything he's done before but will certainly look for him in the future.
This was every well written and researched. At times I felt like I was listening to a cultural/regional book rather then a mystery/espionage. I do think I learned some about the Afghanistan nation and that not a bad thing. I think the narrator did an excellent job or I may have turned it off. The book sells for $5.95 and for that it is definitely worth the price.!
With over 500 audiobooks in my library it would be difficult to place this one. Not at the very top or bottom but somewhere in the middle.
Kevin Foley did a great job with this especially since the main character is a woman.
This book has gotten some poor and mediocre reviews on both Audible and Amazon and I'm not sure why. I actually listened for some of the discrepancies mentioned (blonde hair/brown), only to hear that the girl colored her hair out of a bottle. If people would listen the story may have unfolded with a little more fluidity. I thought this was a really good fast paced book, well written, believable and completed with talented narration. This is worth the credit!
I have so many books in my library I have a hard time rating them on order but I would say it falls in the top half.
The best part of this book is that it's conclusion is so far off from what you think it's going to be. Good plot with some really good twists and high tension.
Christopher Lane did a great job on all
Not extreme but melancholy. Linwood Barclay tends to put these zingers in at the very end and the last maybe 4 - 5 minutes get you every time.
This is a really good listen. I wasn't sure I was going to like it. The first part of the book starts out with the disappearance of a family minus the daughter. Her life is spent looking for them and wondering why they just up and moved with out her. I thought it was a little hokey but then as people started to get involved in the hunt for the family they started getting murdered and then it just kept getting better and better with one heck of a conclusion that will knock your socks off. It's worth the credit!
This was a really good fast paced adventure packed story. I would have like if it were a little longer. Characters were pretty fleshed out, enough for the story.
I think I liked Hannah the best. Her story came out little by little through out the book. As a subplot this was superb.
I don't want to spoil this for anyone but I think the scene that touched me the most was towards the end when Hannah sat with Nick on the mountain watching the fire.
I thoroughly enjoyed this book. The ending was not what I had expected. The brothers were GREAT the way they played off of each other, a some are not who they seem to be. I don't want to say too much but in my "opinion" this was certainly worth the credit.
Braden Wright did a great narration as with previous Jet books.
This was a good book but not my favorite in the series. The previous 4 books all developed the character of Jet much more and had her and who ever she was involved with front and center. In this book there are more underdeveloped antagonists and I'm not sure if it was me or the book but I found myself rewinding and relistening. There seemed to be more jumping around and although Jet saves the world her character seems to be downplayed. Her "friend" Matt is off to other parts being stalked by who knows who, I don't think there was resolution to his conflicts. This book moved right along and having listened to the previous four books I did have relationships down but would have been totally lost otherwise. Good series but hoping that Jet VI will be up to the standards I expect from Russell Blake.
