"Is it too early to declare Finder's fifth novel the most entertaining thriller of 2004?....A first-rate surprise ending packs a wallop. This novel is the real deal: a thriller that actually will keep readers up way past their bedtimes." (Publishers Weekly)
"A twisting, stealthily plotted story...as a savvy genre piece with built-in momentum, it works just fine...the book weaves a tangled and ingeniously enveloping web." (The New York Times)
"What keeps the pages turning isn't the suspense, though, as much as it is Finder's detailed portrayal of the Machiavellian world of the mega-corporation and its high-stakes intrigue." (The New York Times Book Review)
"This thriller is engaging from the opening lines and doesn't let up until the surprising end. Scott Brick narrates flawlessly....This great performance is a perfect fit for the writing." (AudioFile)
I'm not sure whether it's the main character's whine or just that the story is boring, but I stop listening after about 2/3 of the book because I just couldn't care about the outcome and haven't been able to bring myself to go back to it.
This was a great story. Very will written and VERY engaging. You will have a hard time shutting this one off. Lookinf forward to more titles from this offer!
Enjoyed this immensely. Couldn't wait to get in my car so I could keep listening!
Entertaining, contemporary setting, but lacks the details that Dan Brown or John Grisham would have included. Left me wanting for more. I felt I was being sluffed over. I could have learned a lot more about industrial spying. Paranoia wasn't up to my expectations on technical aspects that would have enhanced the book.
Although I have little techno knowledge, I was able to follow and understand the often highly-technical language of the world in which this novel exists. The story was wonderful! Lots of interesting characters, great plot, and always suspenseful. Just when I thought I know where the story was headed, it shifted. I'd love to read more by Mr. Finder.
I found this book very entertaining novel (unabridged). Author showed a great ability to build characters and create a rivoting plot that was difficult to put down...... until the ending which I had figured out about 2/3 the way through the book and I felt as if there were a lot of loose ends. But, the suspense, the descriptions and the non-stop action made this book fall on my recommended list.
Man, one little party on company expense and look what happens. I loved the plot of this book. Who knows what? Who is working for whom? What is going to happen next?
A great thriller of corporate espionage. It will have you on the edge of your seat (hard to do while driving) and wanting more.
This is one of the best reads (listens) that I have had in quite some time. The story is tightly written that will keep you guessing up to the very end. I highly recommend this book.
This booking was gripping from the very beginning. I couldn`t put it down, every spare second I had each day was spent reading this book. The BEST book I have EVER read bar none!!
I'd never heard of Joseph Finder, I'd never even seen any of his movies. But I'm glad other people generously reviewed this book, because its given me another author to enjoy this summer. This book has a great plot and the characters are very well fleshed out. There are a few too many current references that will make this book seem dated in a few years - so read it now when you won't have to laugh at yourself. Also, unlike many audio books, this title is very well read, e.g. it neither puts you to sleep nor irritates the listener. If you want something to keep you up on a road trip or wish that your communte was just a little bit longer, grab this book - its top notch.
