I love dark gritty thrillers, mystery, psychological, police procedural, and horror with the romance set at a minimum to none.
I enjoyed the dialogue between the hijacker and the main character. Both thought of themselves as foxes but who will win? And there lies the fun of listening to the story.
This was the first time I have listened to a book like this but I really enjoyed David Wind's style and will definetly look for more books by this author.
Tim was very professional with his delivery and did a great job differentiating the characters voices.
I dont want to spoil the book for people reading my review before listening to the book. I will say that the book has many surprises and that is what I enjoyed the most. This story will appeal to anyone that likes action, thrillers, or suspense.

I love listening to Psychological Thrillers , and Suspenseful or Action Novels..
This is an extremely fast moving story; a page turner, if you will, and holds plenty of twists to keep the reader just a bit off balance right up until the end.“A fascinating and complex murder mystery that keeps readers involved and guessing till the exciting climax.”

The Hyte Maneuver
: David Wind
This suspense thriller/ police procedural/ murder mystery begins with a plane being hijacked and continues with the investigation of what happened. The listener will be drawn into the story and will spend their time "helping" solve the crimes. David Wind is a new to me author, but I plan to check out more of his work.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed by Tim Welch.

Get a narrator that has more range. All the characters sounded the same and it was difficult to determine who was talking.
I loved the tension in the hijack scenes at the beginning of the book especially when the hijacker was threatening to shoot everyone and Lt. Hyte finally makes his move.
All the characters sounded the same. He made many editing mistakes, leaving double takes in and I noticed a metallic sound a couple of times like his watch hit the microphone or something. Also, his characters always sounded as if they were yelling at each other even during tender moments.
Yes the characters were great, I would love the go on another mission with Lt. Hyte.

This is an action packed story from beginning to end and will keep you guessing on the killers identity. The story starts with plenty of action when the plane is hijacked by terrorists and Hyte is called in to negotiate the release of the the passengers. After several maneuvers, all coach passengers are released but not first class passengers, which triggers a series of events after the hijacking ends in the death of the terrorists. Highly recommend...

Love action packed, informative and plausible books. Apocalyptic, Government corruption books. CIA.... Nathan Mc Bride, Pike Logan
The Hyte Maneuver is a well written, engaging storyline. The initial plane heist draws the listener in and the plot twists that come after keep the listener engaged. This is a great who done it mystery. The narrator initially left something to be desired. However, once I listed a while I had no problem with the narration. I would suggest this book to a friend and read further novels written by this author.

I loved the way the plot twisted, first being about the hijack, then something entirely unexpected!
Again, I liked the way the plot took unexpected turns, turning a beloved character (Emma) into a diabolically dangerous and demented killer. That was so unexpected!
Dick Hill would have been good. Just about anyone but Tim Welch. His narration was very stilted. I would have stopped listening if the story had not been so darn engaging.
Once the plot got going, after the hijacking was over, yes, I wanted to keep listening until i found out who the serial killer really was. Very engaging.
Great listen for an older book. Thanks to David Wind for the credit in exchange for an honest review.
