The Devil's Eye: An Alex Benedict Novel | [Jack McDevitt]

The Devil's Eye: An Alex Benedict Novel

Interstellar antiquities dealer Alex Benedict receives a cryptic message asking for help from celebrated writer Vicki Greene - who has been mind-wiped. She has no memory of her past life, or of her plea for assistance. But she has transferred an enormous sum of money to Alex, also without explanation. The answers to this mystery lie on the most remote of human worlds, where Alex will uncover a secret connected to a decades-old political upheaval - a secret that somebody desperately wants hidden.

    Story
    "They just keep getting better."

    We're listening to the series, and each is better than the previous. We stop during the story to comment to each other and try to predict what's going to happen. Mostly feels realistic. Good pacing.

    I'm a technician that does a lot of driving for his job. I use the "windshield" time to listen to audiobooks.

    "Below average for Jack McDevitt. 78 out of 100."

    Story is not that original. I was glad when I finished it so I could move on to a better book. 78 out of 100. I'm not putting it in the insomnia category, but I wouldn't put it in the page turner category either. There are several books out there that are superior.

    Greatly those that have problems are. Nuts. All of jack M books are either nebula winners or are nominated.. You won't find a better writer of Sci if today.

    "Poor Narration"

    The story may have been great but the narration was so poor and distracting that my experience was
    spoiled.
