    Story
    "No Good Deed should not go Unread!"
    If you could sum up No Good Deed in three words, what would they be?

    Suspenseful, Frightening, and Entertaining


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Good Deed?

    The torture scenes were remarkably vivid


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked it when the two parts of the story joined as one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The CIA Torture scenes were believeable and scary as hell. Daniel Penz's performance brought each character to life in a vivid way.


    Any additional comments?

    The gimmick (no spolier alert here) was trite at first, but it grew on me until I was really happy for it. Again, I cannot say enough about Mr. Penz's performance. He is a remarkably talented performer

    Story
    "Hard to stop listening!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, once the story is wonderfully set in your mind; it is hard to stop at just the next chapter.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of No Good Deed?

    when the protagonist is given the chance to write down what will happen to him if no one stops the interrogator.


    What does Daniel Penz bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    His ability to differentiate the characters. The ease of which he would switch from one to the other; I haven't experienced the range of pitch, tones and amplitude as I did with this book read.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    When the protagonist was given a second chance.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoyed the writing style and how the narrator was able to project the story.

    "Thriller"
    What did you like best about this story?

    This author has written a fast-paced, tightly-plotted book that I found highly entertaining. The torture scenes were disturbing, but they were integral to the story. Take a large dose of suspense, add some thrills and chills, a few suspected terrorists, a too-powerful and paranoid government, then weave in a bit of romance, and what do you have: NO GOOD DEED.

    "Slow in spots, and a predictable ending, but?"

    Entertaining ... and VERY well performed. I'll likely give book 2 in the series a shot!

    "Not bad"

    The story was not bad. Although it was a little long and boring in spots.
    The narrator was good except when he would whisper he would whisper so quietly that I couldn't understand what he was saying. I would turn volume up only to be blown away when his voice became louder.

    "Fantastic!"

    I enjoyed both the story and the narration, looking forward to the next in the series. I really felt for the character and his circumstances. Also enjoyed the setting of the story in Chicago, very familiar with the area and a nice change of pace from the typical setting of New York.

    Story
    "Great Narration but a thin story"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure


    Has No Good Deed turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    What about Daniel Penz’s performance did you like?

    Yes! His ability to switch between characters was wonderful. I felt I could identify nationalities and picture the players vividly.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Yes. The book was descriptive and gave enough detail where you could visualize the settings (maybe too much in some cases) and put yourself in the scene.
