Publisher's Summary

What price is too high to pay when lives are on the line?

CJ Sheridan's confidence plummets when his attempt to save the victim of an accident turns tragic. Convinced it was bad luck, bad timing or just meant to be, he dives back in. But when his efforts to prevent a murder draw the wrath of a dirty cop, he confronts his greatest challenge ever.

Captured, he finds himself held at a black site in the middle of Chicago. Alone and trapped, CJ must use his wits to survive.

Will he succeed? And what price will he have to pay?

    "Great book"

    narrator is good...decent performance... Easy to listen to...as far as storyline.....how much abuse can a body take....and why does Mark and Chris have such a lack of control?

    "Too Much Distance To Capture My Attention"

    This is a third person narrative. The plot is interesting, the premise fresh, at the very least a new slant on something that may have been done before, and overall, the work demonstrates the author's creativity. There are a few things that take away from his efforts.

    First, telling readers/listeners what every character is thinking and feeling and planning can take away from the suspense and credibility. In this case, it goes full tilt in compromising authenticity.

    Second, authenticity is further degraded because there isn't enough substance to give the reader a sense of placement (location) or environment, e.g., smells, weather. There is no sense of being there.

    Third, the shallow development of the characters created distance between them and me. Instead of skating the surface of the many, a deeper point of view of a few would have had created a more intimate connection and engagement.

    I'll introduce the fourth concern by providing a sample of dialogue from the audiobook.

    "....'Are you OK?'
    CJ jolted away from the voice. Had the driver come back to finish him off?"

    My question is why would a killer, who intent was clearly to murder, backtrack and ask, "Are you OK?"

    In the end, the author plunked in a pretty substantial surprise that I did not see coming, and that gained some traction with me, but the "good stuff" came too late, and in any case, would not have been enough to alleviate the disconnect I felt from the characters and the story.

    Again, the premise is interesting, and for some, it may be interesting enough to explore future installments (this review is for Book Two)-- authors often to through a maturation process when writing installments. As for me, I think I'll pass.

    The narrator did an okay job.
