Neal Vickers did a really good job on this book probably a better job than the author.
This story was full of villains and corruption, these stories always make m wonder about the quality of the people
We are supposed to trust to protect our way of life.
I did feel the author was always in a rush to wrap things up, and that includes the abrupt ending.
The story line was OK but the narration and the dialogue was weak.
I listened to past stuff but this narrator make it very tedious to listen.
Went monotone in some places and pronounced every word, even character dialogue, very precisely. Not life-like at all.
Storyline was OK.
