I wanted to give this 5 stars as the narration was excellent and the story was really good, but the plot lines tied up so quickly and left me wondering where the rest of the book was. I am guessing this is going to be a series but you still need to bring the story in for some kind of landing. The spiritual aspect was very well done as well. If you don't mind sharp endings then you will enjoy this. I am sure if more books appear in this series I will give them a listen.
The Brotherhood was an excellent write. Jerry Jenkins continues to take it up a notch with each new book.
The story was strong taking, the reader through the whole labyrinth of emotions.
I am really looking forward to the next book in the series.
I love books by Jerry Jenkins, and this is no exception. This whole series is great. The Brotherhood is definitely the saddest book I have ever listened to, but as only he can do, Jerry Jenkins brings you through it. Johnny Heller's narration is perfect for this Chicago setting. I highly recommend this book but also include a HUGH hankie alert!
Johnny Heller was the perfect choice to narrate this series. His characterizations are distinctive and believable, and his voice is the perfect blend of raspiness and empathy that make for a great "cop" listen.
This was one of Jerry Jenkins' best efforts. His writing was clear and concise. And he presented a view of police work that was genuine ... depicting both the good and the bad, and showing some of the conflicts that are faced by real policemen.
The weight of the emotional pain felt from start to finish.
No I needed time to process the emotion.
This book is not for the light of heart, however, its for a heart that needs understnding and insight into someone who knows pain and healing love of God.
shorten the whole beginning, add more action and suspense
great. the only good thing about this book
