What the Critics Say

"A smart, thrilling keeper . . . This is one to recommend heartily to friends.... While heating tension and passion to the boiling point, Brockmann firmly squashes the cliche of military men with hearts of stone and imbues her SEALs with honest emotional courage." (Publishers Weekly)
"[Brockmann] takes a quantum leap forward with a novel that is richly textured, tenderly touching and utterly exciting. This is one book you will be unable to put down or forget!" (Romantic Times)

    "Pivotal Book of the Series!!!!"

    I have really liked the style of the Suzanne Brockman action books, an exciting story with decent of character development. I have to admit that I have not read the stories in order. As I come to the earlier numbers in the Troubleshooters series there is much more character development. The books are worked in a way so there are little sniplets from the past that are blended to help you see how the character became the way they are now. As opposed to the later books where the characters already seem to know themselves and they decide to be with their loves/partner anyway and deal with the faults instead of the author helping the readers understanding of what made them that way through past flashbacks.

    THIS book is referenced in just about EVERY other book that she writes. This is the story where Gina and Max first meet when she is a hostage on an airplane and he is the negotiator. It colors those characters throughout the rest of the series.(happens in first 1.5 hrs) Also this is the book where Sam meets Mary Lou, then leaves to work on the hostage situation... with Alyssa and Jules. So a lot of characters that you'll come to know and love, and who will have their own books later, do actions in this book that will haunt them through the series.

    I wasn't a huge fan of the reader. I don't think that she does well with a large number of male voices and I wasn't a fan of her Danish accent either. She tells the story well, good pacing, you just can't tell all the men apart sometimes.

    "Cartoonish With A Touch of Jr. High"

    This is a book filled with holocaust survivors, FBI, CIA, NAVY SEALS, Hostage negotiators, Terrorists. - sounds intense right? well it's not - at all.

    The plot is set in a middle east country where a plane was taken hostage by terrorists; SEALS and FBI are there for the rescue, but in this "great Novel" (please note the sarcasm here) everyone acts like they're at a sandles resort. They have dinner dates, sing karaoke, get drunk, go swimming in the hotel pool, and they act like eighth graders on who likes what boy and girl. in a word -
    embarrassing.

    I like nonfiction, biographies and the occasional novel. BUT I can not pass up a good mystery, crime novel, or really great suspense plot. I am fascinated by an author's creative ability to interweave twists. Since Flynn's 'Gone Girl', the bar for a completely unseen game-changer is pretty high! Challenge extended :)

    "Great book. Definite in the Series"
    Would you listen to Over the Edge again? Why?

    Yes


    What did you like best about this story?

    This book bridges the series together. I started randomly in the Troubleshooters series. Most all of the events that have been references in the other 3 I've read were addressed in this book.


    What about Laura Hicks’s performance did you like?

    Laura adjusted her voice for the different charachters enough to differentiate but not too much to sound ridiculous.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    It held my attention but it wasn't until the last 5 chapters that I really couldn't stop listening.

    To accomplish great things, we must not only act, but also dream; not only plan, but also believe.

    "Awesome Story."

    This is Stan's and Teri's story, with Sam, Max, Cowboy, Izzy and Jules, who we will be visiting in future stories. This story sets up a number of continuing stories. Stan and Teri's story is one of sweet compassion. Mr. Fixit Stan, might be good at fixing things for the men under his command, but the sweet darling knows nothing about the female species. I laughed out loud at his advice to the other helio pilot on dating, when he, himself was so tongue tied when around Teri. When Teri realized that Stan was basically shy when it came to her decided to take matters into her own hands....I cheered, because our bumbling friend would still be fumbling around. In other matters, I think they waited too long to get the hostage situation done, I realize that "WASHINGTON" was the hold up, and that senator needed a good slap for being such an idiot and almost blowing it. Reminds me of a few that we have in office now. All in all a very good book with some action, some sex, and a lot of future stories.

    "GOOD STORY, SO SO READER"

    I HAVE READ MOST OF SUZANNE BROCKMANN'S EARLY WORKS AND ENJOY THEM VERY MUCH. HER EARLY WORKS ARE MORE STORY DRIVEN WITH FEWER POLITICAL RANTS. THE EARLY BOOKS ALSO PROVIDE THE HISTORY FOR LATER STORIES. THE WEAKNESS IN THE STORY IS THE NARRATOR. OF COURSE, PATRICK LAWLOR AND RENEE RAUDMANN (NARRATORS FROM HER LATER BOOKS) ARE SO GOOD THAT IT IS HARD TO COMPETE.

    "Male narrator needs to be replaced."

    This series just draws you in. Before losing my sight I read every book published. Unfortunately, there are a lot of titles in audio that are now unavailable. This is the 3rd book I have listened to with the same narrators. I have to say that the man needs to be replaced. His voice is just not compatible with the series. He makes everything sound rude and crude. Hope she writes a more believable book than book 16 next.

    "Outstanding!"
    What did you love best about Over the Edge?

    This book brings forth so much emotions as you listen, like you can imagine how these people would feel if they were being held hostage or trying to rescue hostages. The story is so emotional and powerful. I laughed, I cried, I was enraged... it brought forth so many emotions, which a great book always does.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Over the Edge?

    There are too many to pick, but the relationship between Gina and Max stick with you.


    Which character – as performed by Laura Hicks – was your favorite?

    The flashback characters.


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

    Gina's attack had me in tears. The entire scene was realistic and heart wrenching.


    Any additional comments?

    This was an excellent book that not only tells the great love story of Terri and Stan, but also explores some of the other Troubleshooter characters. This more than makes up for the disappointment I felt in the last Troubleshooter book.
