I loved the story. If you go into the story, without too much scrutiny and allow the author a bit of room, then its an entertaining well paced exciti..Show More »ng story.
If you don't allow the author some licence then I think it would be easy to dislike this book, particularly toward the end. If you love well constructed plausible plot lines keep away from this book. If you are willing to let the author string you along and don't think too deeply about the plausibility of the plot and the actions of some of the characters this is a cracking book.
I have mixed thoughts about the narrator, the deepness of his voice is off the scale and at first listen he sounds totally pretentious. I have a fairly high end car stereo, I had to turn down the bass to stop the car from shaking when the narrator spoke. Seriously!
When I first starting listening to this book, I hated the narration. I considered giving up on this book and returning it. The narrator quickly started to grow on me, particularly after turning down the bass on my car stereo. As I got used to the narrator and I also think he toned down some of the pretension after the first few chapters, I actually started to enjoy the book much more. On the positive side the narrator's pacing is quite good and the main character is noted in the story as having a distinctive voice.
I am off to buy the next book in the executive series.
I loved Gary Grossman's first in this series, but this second one is even better. The story was good, the characters are wonderful, lots of cliff hang..Show More »ers and who dunnits.........and I love the narration that John McLain is providing. An easy "to listen to", page burner..........just starting the third in the series and I'm already hooked. Great series, hoping it won't end at third book. Thank you Gary and John! Aloha
