Publisher's Summary

Nowhere to hide...

What should have been a relaxing vacation in Paris turns into another unwinnable situation for expert criminology consultant Leopold Blake. Caught in the cross hairs of a ruthless assassin and on the run from the police for a murder he didn't commit, Blake and his team must fight to clear his name before it's too late.

As enemies close in from all sides, Blake is about to learn who he can trust - and who is determined to destroy him - as The City of Light becomes a new hunting ground. Wanted is another exhilarating instalment in the Leopold Blake series of thrillers, which can be read and enjoyed in any order.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    "Down rated due to lack of character development"

    Wanted is a decent short thriller. I had to decide between 3 and 4 stars. The almost total lack of the development of the protagonist was a disappointment.

    Retired CFO, Army wife, Mom of five, Grandma of six, two sons who served in combat, love to read books that reflect my values and faith, love mysteries, historical, military stories, and books that don't waste my time . . . if it doesn't have an ending that was worth the wait, I'm not a happy camper.

    Story
    "On the Run in Paris"

    A different and interesting listen . . . Leopold, a rich consultant travels to Paris to access the security in the Louvre . . . discovering an art theft . . . then the murders begin . . . I love the characters . . . especially Leopold's bodyguard, Jerome, and Mary, the NYPD officer . . . the trail doesn't lead where you might think . . . great story, and not gruesome . . . I appreciate that there aren't graphic sex scenes, too . . . I will listen to the next in the series . . .

    "An action-packed story"

    I really enjoyed this book. The chapters are short which I like. The story is well written and thought out. It's action packed and a definitely page turner. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

    The narrator does a wonderful job of immersing the listener into the story, keeping you listening.

    "A Solid beginning to a series"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Wanted to be better than the print version?

    No. It gives a bit of a different experience and is convenient for when I'm not able to sit down and read.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Leopold. He is the engine that pushes us into the adventure. He is just the right mixture of brilliance with naivete and idealism. A more worldly operator would have run for cover and used his money as a shield but he believes in the power of the truth.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where the women are running around an office creating a diversion for our hero. Comedic.


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

    The hero did make he face palm a few times but that was a result of his nature. It did not give me an extreme reaction. It was a solid thriller. A credit to its genre, but not a masterpiece of literature that will echo through the ages.


    Any additional comments?

    The last line of the book really brings the whole thing into a different focus. The narrator did a good job varying up his voices for the different characters. No replacement for a full cast narration but solid.

    "Gripping and entertaining"

    This is the first book in the series, and I definitely want to listen to (or read) the rest! Leopold Blake is an unusual character, but well fleshed out, as are his companions. The story is tautly written, but also has humour. The reader does a very good job here, and I thoroughly enjoyed listening.
