This is a smart thriller but it takes a while through the first book to see it. I always wonder who puts up the reviews of "1st" books to a series that say this same thing but this is an intelligent book with a great ending that isn't visible until the last 5 chapters. I like that!! I have high hopes for the next dozen books or so! Keep in mind this book was written before cell phones were ubiquitous (1987 I think)! But aside from cell phone technology it is very current and exciting!
The bounce between whether or not the protagonist and the heroine will get together is fun!!!
She is a great audio performer - there are few better (Amanda Ronconi and Lorelei King are the only two that are as good or slightly better!)
Yes, however, I work for a living so it took me almost 3 days. That means I listened every minute I wasn't working (60 hours a week as an Architect), torturing middle-school children (mother of 3, ugh), doing laundry (my penance for not being a billionaire) or cleaning everything (part of being human - even though I have a weekly housekeeper)!!!
It was very slow at first but after the first few hours it was totally worth it.
