When Cash Harris visits his father for the first time after a 15 year estrangement, things don't go anywhere near as planned. By the end of the night, he finds himself embroiled in a plot to destabilise the government, his father has been assassinated, and he discovers a shocking truth that would have fundamentally altered his life 15 years earlier.
However, all of this pales into insignificance when, along with his best friend and ex-fiancee, he fights for his innocence and the chance to save a world they didn't even know needed saving. They uncover the truth that has been alluding mankind from its very inception. Life, the universe - everything... nothing is as it really seems.

The audio version of this book is well narrated.
I have 4 other books from the same author. Each one is held my attention until the very end.
I've never heard of this particular narrator before.
Building a new home.......
I was so glad Audible picked up this author. I hope they will make more of his books available.
Not in the top 10, but maybe the top 25. A tricky, rather interesting and compelling offering, that has several unanticipated plot twists and turns.
Certainly to other audio book fans.
Definitely one of the better performances of the years. Brought the characters to life, and owned the story
Not really extreme, but certainly kept my interest, and I did have some chuckles and eyebrow raises.
This book definitely sneaks up on the listener, and comes with enough wrinkles and twists to keep the story fresh and engaging. Recommended highly
The writing. It's ... poor. How poor? At one point, he even uses the phrase "one of the more unique places..." Hunh? A professional writer using "more unique"? DIdn't we get that drilled out in high school? Apart from that, it's cliche-ridden. For example, all the women are "beautiful and dangerous". But the bad ones are "dark" and the good ones have sunny dispositions.The worst part is that there are simply no descriptions that bring the world to life. A day is sunny - that's it. Are there clouds? How warm is it? Is there a breeze? None of these details are, apparently, relevant. But, as we all know, those are the things that allow us to see the location in our mind's eye. They're important.
I don't think anyone could bring this stilted prose to life, but the voices just aren't believable.
The plot - the basis for the story offered a real opportunity. Too bad about the execution.
I am finishing the book, because I want to know how the plot lines end. But this is the first time in a long time that one of my audible books has gone days without me bothering to pick it up.
No. It was an interesting plot, but it was not developed enough and the characters were flat.
Maybe, if he were to work on developing the story more.
I did not like the narrator. There did not seam to be enough change in his voice from one character to the other. There were times I was not sure who was speaking.
A good listenperiod. I enjoyed it good narration good story. I will look at other books that this Author has written
The story line for this book is really far fetched but the action is good and I liked the characters, especially Cash and Rigs. I did find the story line at times a little unsettling.
this book reminded me a lot of the "Area 51" series by Bob Mayer where the characters aren't overly interesting or have much depth, but the listening is easy and enjoyable. i was a little bummed that it doesn't seem terribly set up for a sequel, but still well worth the credit.
