Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I did enjoy this book. It is well written. It is a bit predictable, but enjoyable none the less.

Would you be willing to try another book from Laila Ibrahim? Why or why not?

Yes, I may try the next book, Yellow Mustard.

What about Bahni Turpin’s performance did you like?

I always enjoy Bahni Turpin and, in fact, download books based on if she is the narrator. She is soothing on the ears, does excellent character voices and brings stories to life. I loved her voice in The Help and have followed her on audible ever since.

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

No. It is a bit long for one sitting. I would listen to this on my commute to work and while cleaning the kitchen.

Great!

Creepy, true, but also a great story. Each character is so well developed. And the narrator is fantastic. I really liked it and can't wait to listen to the next book by Andrew Taylor.

Rene Auberjonois is a great narrator and Preston and Child are fantastic writers. They have created a modern Sherlock Holmes in Agent Pendergast. I can not get enough of this FBI Agent! All in all, very enjoyable listening!

Well written and well narrated, this book is enthralling! I have listened to it twice and suggested it to my friends. They too love this series of books by Preston and Child.

I loved it!

I can't get enough of Agent Pendergast! Plus, Rene, the narrator, does a WONDERFUL job. Both well written and well read, this book is a must have! Be sure to check out the other books by Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child.

Author should stick to writing only

When the author reads his or her own book it can go either way. When Douglas Adams reads his, brilliant. However, in this book, the author is not a good narrator. I couldn't even get past the first chapter. I was not engaged and I am not sure if it is because the author's voice is distracting me or if it is the actual book. I imagine it could be both. I would play it safe and check this book out at the library before purchasing.
