Threat Warning | [John Gilstrap]

Threat Warning

The first victims are random. Ordinary citizens, fired upon at rush hour by unseen assassins. Caught in the crossfire of one of the attacks, rescue specialist Jonathan Grave spies a gunman getting away - with a mother and her young son as hostages. To free them, Grave and his team must enter the dark heart of a nationwide conspiracy. But their search goes beyond the frenzied schemes of a madman's deadly ambitions. This time, it reaches all the way to the highest levels of power.

    "Vanilla"

    This is not a 'on the edge of your seat' book. It's a bit plodding and the characters didnt impress me all that much and they are not very exciting. The narrator does not help things at all. Sounds rather whiney. I thought it was a waste of my money.

    "Lackluster"

    A little escapism is good for all of us on occasion, and listening to Jonathan Graves' exploits certainly fills the bill. Translated: I like the series. Not so much on this one, however.

    The story seems to drift from scene to scene without the kind of detail that enriches. Characters we know well don't seem to know each other at times; and while I appreciate the differing moral perspectives of Jonathan and Gail and how these conflicts leverage their relationship, I do not believe the themes are well developed. We are only shown shadows of what should be a major sub-plot that enriches the entire series.

    That and a poorly constructed and rushed finale bothered me. Basil Sands, however, managed to irritate me from beginning to end. His voice does not have the timber this assignment calls for, and his characterizations (especially that of Boxer) are laughable. They are simplistic, sometimes crude, and poorly done. This fact alone robs the story of appeal. Add the weak story development and I rate this one low. I debated a 3 but just couldn't do it.

    Story
    "Not the usual fare from this author."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I wouldn't recommend this audiobook to anyone but I would recommend this book as a hard copy.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    The premise of the story was good. It was not the edge of your seat book I usually read from this author and it took a bit of patience to get through the beginning. The story picked up but by the end, I was glad it was over.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The storyteller's pace was too erratic. One minute the Main character is the focus, when in less than a breath, the secondary characters are introduced. What happened? Did I miss something relevant? This happened through out the audiobook.

    "Beginning writer?"

    Story isn't bad, but the writing is weak. Unrealistic dialog, chronic breaks in the flow of the story, cliche-ridden. This guys needs an editor in a BIG way. Narrator is not bad given the material with which he has to work. Purchase only if you're relatively desperate.
