Congo Dawn | [Jeanette Windle]

Congo Dawn

While former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan is no stranger to corruption or conspiracy, she has always been able to tell the good guys from the bad. At first, her current assignment is no different: working on behalf of an international corporation to secure a valuable Congo mining region from the attacks of an insurgent killer. But as her security team tries to track down their target, Robin has to face a man who broke her trust years ago, and she discovers the gray areas extend further in this jungle than she anticipated.

Publisher's Summary

Absolute power breeds absolute corruption.

While former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan is no stranger to corruption or conspiracy, she has always been able to tell the good guys from the bad. At first, her current assignment is no different: working on behalf of an international corporation to secure a valuable Congo mining region from the attacks of an insurgent killer. But as her security team tries to track down their target, Robin has to face a man who broke her trust years ago, and she discovers the gray areas extend further in this jungle wilderness than she anticipated.

A ruthless global conspiracy begins to surface, run by powerful men who can’t afford to leave any witnesses. Her life at stake, Robin doesn’t know whom to trust and wonders how she can help protect the Congolese people. Why is God silent amid all the pain and injustice? And how do these people of faith continue to rejoice in their suffering?

    "Not Windle's best; narrator distracting"
    What would have made Congo Dawn better?

    I think a different narrator. With the myriad of accents she had to perform, Brooke Sanford Heldman just doesn't seem to have the experience needed to pull them off.
    Also, the coincidence of Robin and Michael meeting up again... come on, really?


    What could Jeanette Windle have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I do not know. I think I will try and read it in print, since I have read all of her other books in print.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Her accents, primarily. it was obvious that she did not become the characters, and her African accent was stereotypical, with no inflection or dialect difference.


    Any additional comments?

    Pick this one up in print, not audio... perhaps with a few more books under her belt, Brooke Sanford Heldman could become a very good narrator; inexperience shows on this one, though.

    "Interesting story"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    The book had a good premise, the narrator's portrayal of the characters was not good.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's portrayal of Lt. Robin Duncan was of a whiny, sulky, bad tempered woman, not a seasoned Afghanistan Marine Lieutenant. I never was able to like Robin's character.


    Do you think Congo Dawn needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    No

    "DON'T BUY THIS IF YOU WANT A GOOD ADVENTURE"
    Would you try another book from Jeanette Windle and/or Brooke Sanford Heldman?

    NO


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeanette Windle again?

    I DOUBT IT


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Sanford Heldman?

    SCOTT BRICK


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO-I WAS DISAPPOINTED FROM THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS.


    Any additional comments?

    THIS BOOK HAD A LOT OF REDUNDANT SCRIPTURE QUOTATIONS WHICH SEEMED TO BE JUST SPACE FILLERS I WISH I WOULD HAVE EXCHANGED IT. IT APPEARED TO BE A GOOD ADVENTURE STORY BY THE DESCRIPTION BUT WAS I FOOLED!
