    Story
    "Terrible."
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Fans of the Grey Man, maybe. The characters are flat as cardboard. No background or personalization whatsoever. I previously complained that Patricia Highsmith spent too much time in developing a character and what they were thinking. This is the other extreme: no character at all.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Not at all. I didn't care a bit for the characters, therefore the plot was of no interest. If anything kept me on the edge of my seat it was wondering when I might learn something about the characters.


    What about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance did you like?

    Unlike others, the use of two different narrators, one for first-person and one for third-person, didn't bother me at all. They were adequate but didn't have anything interesting to work with.


    Any additional comments?

    I have worked my way through most books that I didn't care for, but a few, including this one, I just couldn't finish. I really didn't care what happened, so the slog wasn't work the effort. I quit and returned the book.

    "A story in need of a performance"
    What did you like best about The Widow’s Strike? What did you like least?

    A tight plot with abundant action and healthy doses of reality.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ?

    Any number of narrators. Lou Diamond comes to mind. I'm also not sure having two really adds anything in audiobooks in general -- particularly if they are both male. Even a bit distracting. In any event, one highly prepared one beats two less-than- prepared ones. This seemed the issue as opposed to their talents per se.


    Any additional comments?

    I would read this author again.

    "Pike Logan does it again"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Widow’s Strike to be better than the print version?

    I really don't have much time to read, so I listen to audio books on the way back and forth between the 2 colleges that I teach at.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The danger of a bio-weapon attack by militant enemies of the US


    Have you listened to any of Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Probably have, but I am not sure if I like having two narrators.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    The book really made me more aware of the nature of Islamic extremists.


    Any additional comments?

    I enjoy the Pike Logan series,although the concept of a secret council is a little hard to accept.
