Kate Bishop is in a world of trouble. In the wake of several inexplicable and brutal murders, Kate is thrust into a police inquiry that reveals shocking family secrets. Suddenly exposed to a shadowy network of global evil, her life takes a dramatic turn with the arrival of Jack Raines, an author with a mysterious past who says he has the answers to her questions. What's more, he suggests that Kate herself might be the solution.
But hot on their heels are a force of superpredators, vicious and bloodthirsty killers who will stop at nothing until Kate and Jack are eliminated. Like Jack, they've realized just how special Kate is, and now she's marked for death.
An explosive mix of action and suspense, Nest is a landmark new novel from worldwide best-selling author Terry Goodkind and a complete reinvention of the paranormal thriller. Travel with Goodkind on a dangerous journey to the back alleys of the darknet, to the darkest corners of our minds, and to the very origins of what it is to be human, a place few have ventured to and fewer still have survived.

A fantastic thriller that grabs your attention from page 1 and keeps it, ramping up the tension and anxiety... At first you're not sure if the devil is real, or a delusion, or maybe metaphor?? All of the above and then some;). Some social context weaves in via surveillance, cyber crime/terrorism, identity theft, etc... Really does put a unique twist on the idea of profiling and eye of the beholder... Great pace, but it's not an action filled suspense story, but rather psychological w/ punctuating events that keep you turning pages... I appreciated the mood, which felt somber, and almost a little rainy... The central idea is interesting and the evolutionary theory is fascinating... There's some philosophizing, but it's barely noticeable, and anchors the plot well... Some real nice turnarounds and gotchas throughout, some surprising, some not, but all vividly done... A pretty clear examination of how human cruelty/ depravity permeates and percolates, and often in the most visceral of ways... Characters, major and minor, are natural and easy to invest in, even when on the pages for a short period... The narration was better than average, and doesn't detract or distract... The door was left wide open for a followup, and I sincerely hope that's the case... This is definitely different Goodkind, but paradoxically you can see the fingerprints similar to those in his fantasy works... If you're a fan you'll likely enjoy...

I could not put NEST down...not even for a second. I listened to it at work, at play, in a bar, in the bathroom, while eating, and every other moment of the day. It drew me in
from the first page to the last. The characters were real, and the story was real. One could call it fiction, non-fiction...I DON'T CARE. It not only scared the crap out of me but made me aware of the unbelievable point that no one on earth is safe. TERRY GOODKIND is not good but a GREAT AUTHOR. STOP RIGHT NOW AND DOWNLOAD IT. I could not stop listening!!!
So far I haven't found one!
Every part of this book was GREAT!
THE FUTURE IS HERE NOW
absolutely loved every minute of it !! the end was amazing I've read every book Goodkind has written and never been disappointed!! Just hope there is more to come!!💥💣
I was sceptical. I love the sword of truth series so I was doubtful that a real life crime book by my favourite author would be great. The I remembered law of the nines and thought oh well I'll read it.
As with dan browns books it gets you to think.. what if ? The possibilities.
Can't wait for the next one.
Elisabeth Rodgers is cool.
However this book may have been written by a parrot.
No, no, and again no. Mr. Goodkind is consistent however when I say consistent I mean repetitive I could literally sum of this disgusting book in about 1 chapter. And too top it off I don't like books where people get there eye balls dug out of their skull or where people gnaw off fingers ewwwwwwww.
Too the point.
Listen to the first 15 min and you heard it all so errrm no.
I really knew I shouldn't get this book but I thought what the hay look at all the positive reviews I thought wrong👀
if I had been reading it myself I would say I wouldn't have been able to put the book down. well read story, couldn't stop listening.
"Fantastic new material from Terry Goodkind"
A good listen and read. Top book can't wait for the next instalment, if there's to be one
