    "Great story should be first of the Rho Agenda"
    What made the experience of listening to Once Dead the most enjoyable?

    I real like the way Richard Phillps puts the story together and not to say that narrator MacLeod Andrews really bring the characters to life.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack & Janet


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The Whole Book, but probably the the end .I mean that in a good way.


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

    Could not stop listening, it hook me from the the start but so did the other 3 Rho books


    Any additional comments?

    This series of 4 books by Phillps have been the best listening in a while.Can't wait for his next one.

    "Great new action thriller!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes and I have already done so. The action is non-stop and the narrator is fabulous.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Jack Gregory and Janet Price. These two characters from The Rho Agenda are fun to imagine.


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

    His character voices are great without being so over the top that it pulls you out of the story. His voice really brings the characters to life.


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

    There were several but to avoid spoilers I will vaguely describe three. The first is the scene in Poland at Kazimer's estate and the second is the hotel room scene in Prague. As for the climax, it is great from start to finish.


    Any additional comments?

    You will have a lot of fun listening to this audiobook.

    I love to read and since 2011 I have been mostly listening to audiobooks because oftentimes there is nothing like a good narrator.

    "Just got much better!"

    I enjoyed the 3 books in The Rho Agenda Series but they were clearly YA or Young Adult. I tend to stay clear of YA but occasionally a book or series catches my attention and this one obviously did that. This book is before the teen protagonists came along. It is about Jack Gregory and some of his past. No Spoilers, don't worry. We finally get to find out more about Jack and this book did answer a few questions I've had since finishing the last 3 books.
    One thing I liked about the book was that it didn't seem to be specifically geared toward YA. I don't know the author's history so I apologize if he has many titles under his belt but it seems to me the author has grown. It feels like he is getting better and better and his storytelling skills are really improving. His writing style is evolving nicely and he kept me riveted to this book. I wanted to finish it in one sitting. I didn't feel that in the other 3 books. While I liked those books I really loved this one. I hated seeing it end.
    I would like to see more about the 3 kids from the Rho Agenda Series but I would really like to see more about Jack Gregory. The teens have these wild special abilities now but I think Jack is the most able of the bunch by a long shot.
    Lastly, MacLeod Andrews is awesome, as always. He never disappoints.
