The Naked Edge | [David Morrell]

The Naked Edge

Once they were boyhood best friends, playing in the woods near their homes, pretending to be soldiers surviving behind enemy lines. Grownup, they belonged to Delta Force and later worked as protectors for the world's best security company. Now their lives have taken drastically different paths, pitting them against one another, forcing them to play their boyhood game again, this time to learn who dies.

Publisher's Summary

Once they were boyhood best friends, playing in the woods near their homes, pretending to be soldiers surviving behind enemy lines. Grownup, they belonged to Delta Force and later worked as protectors for the world's best security company. Now their lives have taken drastically different paths, pitting them against one another, forcing them to play their boyhood game again, this time to learn who dies. The survival of a great city hangs in the balance as two friends-turned-enemies hunt one another and discover that there's a line between predators and prey, a line that's called The Naked Edge.

    Story
    "Mediocre, at best"
    Would you try another book from David Morrell and/or Dick Hill?

    I dunno - maybe - this was my first book by Morrell.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Childhood rivalries and adult retribution. The action was too over the top! Almost too far fetched.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    This was not Dick Hill's best reading. Usually, he does a bang up job. And I've listened to many of his narratives...but this one was odd. His voice slurred often and the accents he tried were wrong. The female voices were "off". Maybe he was as bored with the story as I was.


    Do you think The Naked Edge needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Nope! Didn't much enjoy the characters....so I don't feel the need for a sequel.

    "Just OK"

    There are two books in this series, this is the second. The first was very enjoyable and satisfying this book much less so. I haven't been able to put my finger on why. I think one reason is Dick Hill. Stefan Rudnicki narrated the first book and does a better job creating a cool under pressure operator tone and cadence. And I think he did a better female voice. Dick Hill seems to have an edge and almost pushy tone to his reading. The story is also a bit stretched with some elements barely tied together. It just wasn't as satisfying as The Protector.

    Any additional comments?

    After Listening to Rambo I thought I'd listen to this book. The author is a good story teller, but in this book he really dragged the story down with an over abundance of minutia time and time again. There'd be some really good action going on, and then we get into some long explanations of things or a several minute description of them going through a car for a bomb. When I'm going down the road I want the story to flow and not keep going through a slow and go mode so much.

    My other problem is Dick Hill's reading. His voice reminds me of James Gregory who played Inspector Frank Luger on Barney Miller. His voice would be great for old gangster stories, but for stories like this it came off as over dramatic quite often. Unfortunately Frank doesn't have a lot of range on his voices so the female voices pretty much sounded all the same, and not a lot of difference on the male voices either.

    The book and presentation isn't terrible, and some would most likely enjoy it more than I did. Like I said. The story itself had a lot of good parts to it, but kept getting bogged down in my opinion
