Publisher's Summary

24 Hours begins with the perfect family...on the perfect day...about to become trapped in the perfect crime.

Will Jennings is a successful young doctor in Jackson, Mississippi, with his whole life ahead of him. He has a thriving practice, a beautiful wife, and a young daughter he loves beyond measure.

But Will and his family are being watched by a con man and psychopath. A man who has crafted the unbeatable crime. A man who has never been caught, and whose victims have never talked to the police. A man whose life's work strikes at the heart of every family's nightmare: the unstoppable kidnapping.

But this man has never met Will and Karen Jennings.

    "Exciting Book, so well read"

    This one kept me wanting more. The bad guys were very scary and yet one was quite likable at times. The characters are so well fleshed out, you feel like you know what makes each of them tick; you find yourself often cheering on the good guys.
    This book keeps the listener on the edge of her/his seat throughout.
    The narrator is one of the best in the field. I'm downloading more of this author's novels.

    "Rivoting and spine tingling."

    Masterful story teller Mr Iles has woven the events of one family's terror filled life, dramatic, suspenseful, heartwarming, chilling and brave as they manage to survive. Brilliant narrator Dick Hill brings these charactors to life in such a captivating and intriguing manner that one can hardly stop listening. One of the very best novels it has been my privilege to listen to. These two Iles and Hill, what a winning compination. Bring on more.

    "Narrator-- a one man ensemble cast!!!"

    This is my first listen to the authors work. It is a riveting tale, without question. The narrator Dick Hill, is, quite clearly, a one man ensemble who acts, not reads, the parts of the characters. I have listened to him before in multiple genre's and I now search for him and assume the authors will be worthy. You will not be disappointed with this book.

    "Terrible"

    Narration: decent reading, terrible southern drawl. Children's voices are annoying.

    Writing: in stark contrast to what appears to be popular belief, I thought this book was awful. It was predictable, patronizing, and terribly out-of-date gender-wise. Perhaps worst of all, the story wasn't compelling enough to compensate for that.

    The plot is far too neat, and the storylines are tired. The author won't trust his audience; he repeats the same thing three times, each time stating it more pointedly.

    Overplayed stereotypes abound. Men are logical and driven, women are motivated by their relationship to their young. It is self-evident that all women have an overriding maternal instinct that they must either fight against or allow to control and direct them. Women are horrified by others' pain, men are fascinated and perhaps aroused by it. Women exhibit a constant need for the protection of their husbands, which husbands gallantly provide. The rare exception to these rules is treated as just that--an exception--making it noteworthy [only] because of the character's gender. There's no excuse for this. It's just plain lazy, bland writing.

    I hear there's a movie. Maybe that's worth watching. But I wouldn't waste your time sitting through this book.

    "Uncharacteristically Poor Performance by Dick Hill"

    The author, Greg Iles, is a novelist who conveys the nuances of life in the deep South with the insight that only a native can. Dick Hill is on my short list of favorite audiobook narrators and to my ear, he is the true voice of Michael Connelly's Harry Bosch. However, he is not the right choice to perform the accent of any character from a setting in the modern South. He uses bits and pieces of southern caricature snipped from Amos and Andy meets Gone With the Wind to produce his interpretation of contemporary life in the American South. These voices do not approach an accurate representation of what the well educated professional people in Greg Iles' stories should sound like. Rather, the accents are a mixture of antebellum field hands mixed with gangsta rap. Examples: "Wut fo" (What for?) and "Close da do" (Close the door). Equally unfortunate is his lack of knowledge of the correct pronunciation of place names: Natchez, Baton Rouge, Biloxi are examples. It is almost as if someone played a cruel joke on Hill by misdirecting him to repeatedly pronounce them in the most hysterical way possible. The credibility of an otherwise excellent reader is undermined by his lack of knowledge of the subject he has been asked to convey.

    The clever and well-conceived story is spoiled by the distraction of the inaccurate narration.

    "Good story"

    I enjoyed my first Greg Iles book. Engrossing story. The narrator was excellent. I have since listened to most of Greg Iles books, liking many of them, but this one remains one of my favorites. It is one of the few I have listened to twice. Both the writer and the reader create a thread of tension that kept my attention into the night.

    "Great listen"

    I really enjoyed this book. As usual Dick Hill was awesome. Greg Isles has the ability to make you really care about the characters in his books. The only thing missing was an epilogue. I wanted to know what happened to them all. But still a great listen.

    "Evil protagonist makes this story"

    Give me a really bad guy who will likely get his comeuppance and I think you have the basics for a good thriller. Greg Iles gives us one of these evil creeps in the person of Joe Hickey. I'm not sure John Sandford or Jeffrey Deaver, two authors who forge mighty nasty characters, have ever given us anyone who can compare with Joe. Iles balances out Joe's evilness with the gentle giant, Huey. You're never sure what final road Huey will take but, deep down, you hope it will be the right one. All the other characters exist simply to keep the story moving. And move it does during a 24-hour period that should keep iPods operating from start to finish well within that time frame. An excellent thriller with good narration by Dick Hill who, believe it or not, never once said, "Reacher said nothing." Well worth a credit.
