This was a very good fast paced listen. Two stories going on at once that converge about midway through.
This is my 4th consecutive RGB book, I think I'm hooked. This is a really good story, no supernatural in this one but plenty of action and deceit. A few surprises towards the end (I've noticed this author likes doing this). The kind of ending that leaves you with a slack jaw and that's just when you think you have it all figured out. As always Scott Brick gave a fantastic performance.
Yes. It happens to be a really good book. Lots of convoluted psychotic relationships, great character development and interesting plot that is believable.
After listening to three Gabe Quinn books narrated by David Doersch, he IS the voice of Quinn. I hope he will continue to narrate these books.
THE END! And WOW what an ending it is!
I would suggest reading/listening to the first two books prior to this one as the characters build on the previous books and although some background is given on familial and other relationships I can see where this book could get confusing without. The first two are excellent books also, each ending with a cliff hanger that will leave you wanting more. This book however has an ending that leaves you absolutely dumbstruck!! I cannot wait for the next book and can only imagine how Keith Houghton could possibly top this one. Very talented author. I Highly Recommend this book.
Thank You for reading this and if you find it helpful please let me know. I like letting other people know if I think a book is worthwhile and I certainly purchase many based on reviews by others.
Tom, Penn, Kaitlin, Walt & Kaiser - they're the good guys. But the story would exist without The Knox family - they're the bad guys.
There are quite a few memorable scenes in this book. This is kind of an unfair question because I can't answer without spoiling it for someone who hasn't read it. I think the most memorable for me is the aftermath of Kaitlin's rescue. Read/listen to the book to find out what.
This is such a good book. I think Greg Iles did an amazing job writing this trilogy. His recreation of JFKs assassination is truly brilliant. He has woven in the Knox family's involvement, Tom Cage's eventual knowledge and coerced unknown participation until after the fact. Tom's "white" lies he tells his wife Peggy to protect her from the truth. Penn's disillusionment of his father who he alway held the highest esteem. I could go on and on but my suggestion is GET THE BOOK! Highly RECOMMENDED. I am looking so forward to part three.
Good story, really good narration by multiple narrators.
The other books in the "In the Company of Killers"series.
I have only listened to Stephen Bel Davies and Kate Reinders perform the other books in this series. I have listened to Luke Daniels previously but never Nelson Hobbs. I thought they all did a super job. Very believable.
Yes, and I did!
This was a really good addition to the series. I really enjoyed the new character Nora and think she will make a great addition to the organization. I do see a future evolving over time with her and Frederick. I was a little disappointed that he did not play a bigger role in this book but thought the story was excellent with the remaining characters. Quite a few cliff hangers to be picked up in future books. The new mission the proposed at the end of this book? Victor and Nicholas' relationship following devastating revelations? Isabel's training? And more. I truly look forward to the next installment. This is highly recommend.
Yes I would. Why? Because it happens to be a good book with plenty of suspense and intrigue.
Yes it did. You really don't find out the whole story until the end. There are a few subplots that really could be a story by itself but mixed in to this story's main plot really adds to the twists.
Joe Barrett is an excellent narrator. I first heard him doing Brian Freeman's Jonathan Stride novels. Now I look for books that he narrates.
I have either read or listened to all of Brian Freeman's books and have enjoyed everyone. This character is different then the J Stride novels in that this character has quite a bit if sarcastic humor thrown in where Stride maintains his seriousness. I thoroughly enjoy his style of writing. This book moved right along at a good clip. I didn't find any lulls and that's always a plus. It's been a while since The Bone House and I'm glad to see this character reappear. I certainly hope there will be more of him and Stride. I gave this Five Stars all around and Highly Recommend, it's worth the time.
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.
