    "just Awful"
    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator is what ruined this book for me, i just couldn't listen to the phony voices for another second.

    "Craziness"

    I love the Jonathan Grave series but this was out of control. The premise was so flawed. Mr Gilstrap was asking us to suspend all knowledge of facts and how the world actually works. Just way too much.

    "Can't Rescue This One"

    While the Jonathan Grave series got off to a promising start with "No Mercy," the quality of each successive offering in the franchise has been gradually declining until here, in the fifth novel of the series, it hits rock bottom.

    I'm a big fan of political action adventure fairy tales - the really good ones share a commonality - they present a credible or plausible premise at the core of whatever fanciful plot the author chooses to spin. Unfortunately, the premise of High Treason is so far-fetched, so outside the lines of plausibility that the suspension of disbelief becomes a chore akin to bench pressing a piano, rather than a willing pleasure.

    Add a stilted dialogue, read by narrator with a very limited range of expression and limited voice characterization skills - and I found myself asking when this clunker was going to be over.
