    "Better than expected"

    The book was very entertaining and the story moved right along and didn't wander off on too many insignificant details.

    "I would recommend this to all of my friends"

    the performance by Michael page was phenomenal. I felt he captured the essence of each of the characters in a way that entices the listener to go for the whole story inn one shot

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    Well, despite the several killings, suicides, and bombings, this was a boring story. Cut out some of the conversation, and maybe it would be better.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    I may listen to the next one just to see if I warm up to the unfeeling protagonist; if not, that will be it for Sean Dillon.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    I think the narrator did a fine job. The story was boring.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    I read 2 other books in between listenings to this--it was that not engaging.This is not a hero to make my heart pound. He is a sociopath with a warped or dishonest sense of honor (?). His big line is, "I always pay my debts." Except when it is, "I always keep my word." And he expects others to do the same. Maybe I was yawning when it happened, but I missed the part where he could collect his payment even though he hadn't completed his part of the bargain. Now, don't get me wrong, I am happy that the good guys survived and the bad guys didn't, but this was all too weird. This is not honor, even the among-thieves kind. It just made him a jerk.


    Any additional comments?

    What right-minded head of Intelligence and Captain aide leave a man for dead without checking? Seriously? If that's what you count on to stay alive, I fear your time is up.

    "Definitely disliked the story and the performance."

    I was so annoyed by this book that after listening to 3 ½ hours, I had to just turn it off and give up. What a waste of money. Don’t you hate it when you’ve purchased a book that is such a dud?

    I disliked the narrator’s over dramatization of the narration. It was like he was trying to making the story line more than what it was. I kept thinking in my mind, would it be a better story if I were reading it myself? Then I concluded that it would not have been. I did not like the characters that were in the story and I especially did not like Sean Dillon. He was being glorified in the story, but he was the villain. A very disappointing book and I will not continue with the series.

    Narrator was too dramatic which was annoying to me.

    "LUV YA SEAN DILLON!"

    Dillon is such a great character -- so many layers of intrigue and trickery! Can't wait to read more Dillon books by Higgins

    What about Michael Page’s performance did you like?

    Michael is my favorite narrator! He is consistent and does an amazing job with his accents.
