    "GREAT..BEST OF BALDACI"

    Loved it@!!!! Good switching offbeat plot with realistic characters, but a bit of a stretch on Loyalty of FBI AGENTS.

    "TERRIBLE NARRATION!!"
    What disappointed you about Total Control?

    The Narrator made it impossible to concentrate on the actual story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by David Baldacci again?

    Yes, just not by this narrator.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Marosz’s performances?

    Absolutely NOT!! I'm sorry, but his voice was not made for audio books.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. I love David Balducci, but I just could not for the life of me get past the terrible narration.

    Story
    "Not as good as usual."

    Not up to his usual excellence; maybe because it was still early in his career. Too many plot holes and inconsistencies, even at the climactic scene in the bluffs.

    "With a different narrator, would have been 5 stars"

    I did not care for the narrator but the story was amazing!
    It kept me guessing until the very end!

    "Being a Ballacci fan caused me to buy this and I'm so glad i did!"

    I am so hoping these two will have more stories written about them. The female lead and the male FBI agent blended so well. I can see a great book coming out of their follow up story.
    Thank you, enjoyed it so much!

    Liked the suspenseful plot, lots of twists and turns!! Couple of events were far-fetched, but not enough to matter much. Liked the ending. It was believable!

    "I never have been disappointed by D. Baldacci's writing."

    A challenge with excitement driving one to reach the denouement while still being loathe of missing anything . Thank you.
    J. Marosz is a worthy narrator.
