Worst read book

As I listened to this far fetched alien-legal thriller, I was constantly reminded that the reader read too slowly. He actually read as though he had a learning disability. Every syllable was pronounced, and made me concentrate more on him than the story. The story is very weak, in which every loophole and unbelievable exception is made up to explain his story line. Very disappointed, I had to finish the book just so I wouldn't have felt cheated, but I wanted to trash it.

Unique mystery-sci fi is a fascinating read.

Dallas attorney Stan Turner has a long history of doing special jobs for the CIA. Unfortunately, he has also accepted their help from time to time. Now the CIA insists he help them prevent the discovery of a top secret project involving aliens and to insure his cooperation and silence they have his son kidnapped and exiled to the alien world. But this isn't Stan's only problem. One of his oldest clients is the victim of embezzlement and his partner, Paula Waters, is arrested on a trip outside the country. A very complex story but one difficult to put down.

I also enjoyed William Timnick's reading of the novel and am looking forward to hearing more from him.
