I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
This novel, like the others in this marvelous crime thriller series, probably deserves 5 stars, but the author unnecessarily decided to bring partisan politics into the story in a "preachy manner". I down rated the novel one star due to the political angle.
I am not listening to the 5th and most recent book in the McRyan mystery series and the partisan politics are not there, This is a wonderful series and the narration is also outstanding.
I don't generally read or listen to books more than once. This one was very good though so I might consider it.
Might be a mix between a Dan Brown book where there is a lot of action and a Grisham book for the story.
Mr. Peppers does excellent voices for the characters. He has a calming, smooth voice as the narrator.
Yes. I spent hours at a time listening and waiting for the time I could listen again.
Stelljes is a very good writer and Peppers bring his characters to life. A great partnership and I can't wait for the next one.
The plot was good and the storyline was equal to the other books in the series. The negatives were a few completely unnecessary diatribes on the Citizens United Supreme Court decision and the Left's/Hollywood's typical and easily anticipated boogie man. It was laughable how the author proclaims the main character, Mac, to be an independent, apolitical thinker, but the only reasonable politicians were those who share viewpoints with democrats. Disappointing.
I like the mcRyan series. It somehow feels more like a ridealong with real cops working out a case rather than some superhero. Great book!
I'm reading this series in order with several others in-between. I continue to like Mac and the other characters in his life. Nice, comfortable love story without a lot of graphic sex scenes. Lots of murders, again no gratuitous violent descriptions.
This plot was far-fetched (St Paul cop and fired FBI agent involved in a presidential race). But still a fun read.
Look forward to the next in a few months.
Narration was fine, although I had difficulty remembering what voice went with which character.
I read fiction to get away from the divisive politics that dominates news programs. I'm quite educated & have my own views on Campaign Super PACs, etc. This story was fun, but I tired of the preaching by 3/4 of the way through the story.
