Publisher's Summary

In the heart of North Carolina's Research Triangle stands a corporate laboratory much like the others nearby. But behind its walls, America's top scientists work around the clock to attain the holy grail of the 21st century - a supercomputer that surpasses the power of the human mind.

Appointed by the president as ethicist to Project Trinity, Dr. David Tennant finds himself in a pressure cooker of groundbreaking science and colossal ambition. When his friend and fellow scientist is murdered, David discovers that the genius who runs Project Trinity was responsible and that his own life is in danger.

Unable to reach the president, and afraid to trust his colleagues, David turns to Rachel Weiss, the psychiatrist probing the nightmares that have plagued him during his work at Trinity. Rachel is skeptical of David's fears, but when an assassin strikes, the two doctors must flee for their lives.

Pursued across the globe by ruthless National Security Agency operatives, David and Rachel struggle to piece together the truth behind Project Trinity and the enormous power it could unleash upon the world. As constant danger deepens their intimacy, Rachel realizes the key to Trinity lies buried in David's disturbed mind. But Trinity's clock is ticking.

    "Footprints of God"

    I have read most of the books available written by Greg Iles. He continues to be one of my favorite authors.
    This is my first experience with audio books and I was not disappointed.
    Greg is a master of story telling and Footprints of God was quite enjoyable.
    It was a little difficult to get past the non Christian/Judeo concepts put forth in this work but he does lay out an interesting alternative.

    My only negative comment would be to have a female read the female parts. the reader sounded too much like a man trying to convince the world that he is female in the voice used for Rachel's character.

    Story
    "This book should be in the romance category."
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No! There is TOO much back and forth with Rachael Weiss. Needs more meat and less sugar.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Greg is one of my favorite authors but he laid an egg here. Next listen! Greg or Vince Flynn.


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    Dick did a good job considering what he had to work with. He also is one of my favorites.


    Was The Footprints of God worth the listening time?

    No! I wasted my last credit on this and feel ripped off. This was the first book I almost deleted before finishing.


    Any additional comments?

    I wonder if I'm a sexist or does anyone else notice how Women come across in these books.
    They all sound like Miss Kitty, "be careful Matt".

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book from Greg Iles and/or Dick Hill?

    Not even a little believable. I need to think that "this could really happen." Iles quality is undependable and inconsistent.


    What could Greg Iles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    I don't think the premise was workable.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Dick Hill’s performances?

    Dick Hill is great.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment


    Any additional comments?

    Probably my last Iles book.

    "The Footprints of God -- Disappointed"

    I really like his Blood Memory book but found this one hard to follow and after chapter 4 did not want to listen any more.

    "Disappointment"

    I usually like Iles books, but this one was a disappointment. Sounded like he rushed to get it out for a deadline or something. I won't give up on him, but don't recommend this one.

    Not Greg Iles at his best, I was surprised that this is the first of his work that I have not thoroughly enjoyed. Predicable.

    "Blcch."

    I like the way Iles reconceptualizes God, but the conclusion was way beyond my ability to suspend disbelief. My biggest issue was the Christ story. Entirely annoying.

    I will re-listen to the same book. I know what difference a great narrator does for a book. I will follow same characters and writers a lot

    "Tsk, tsk, boo!!!"
    Would you try another book from Greg Iles and/or Dick Hill?

    I have enjoyed many Greg Iles books and LOVE Dick Hill's narrations of everything!


    What could Greg Iles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it shorter, left out the ending.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Dick Hill


    Could you see The Footprints of God being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I am so disappointed Mr. Isles. I agreed with your speech after the ending but even that came up short. I wish to be entertained not read someone's dissertation on what is God, Who created Him and How. The ideas intrigued me but wrong place wrong time : )

    "Loved the book."
    Where does The Footprints of God rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    I really enjoyed this book. It was not at all what I thought it was going to be. I was intrigued and captivated by the story. It was one of my favorite audio books.

    "stupid"

    Stupid and hard suspend my disbelief. I also had difficulty having empathy for the characters. If you like Iles, try another one.
