I'm sceptical that Baldacci actually wrote this. The story and dialogue are utterly implausable.

Excellent!

Just a great book in every way. It is very sad that this is the end of the series.

Good Book with mild performance shortcomings.

This would be a four or five star rating if rated as a traditional book. The single problem is that the book is written in the first person and the narrator just does not sound, in my opinion, like you would expect McGee to sound. Nothing wrong with his voice, but the emphasis, phrasing, etc. just does not seem to be McGee.

I read all these books some 40 years ago and was happy to see them as audio books. It is unfortunate, however, that they are in the first person -- the narrator (phrasing, emphasis, etc.) just does not sound like MeGee to me.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

From two sheriff recorded murders that no one knows about to the telephonic report of a train-struck car before the time it happened, there are just too many premises that don’t ring true. Mr. Child got sloppy. My first disappointment of the entire series.

Would you recommend The Affair to your friends? Why or why not?

Yes, mildly.
