Great Read!

The story is excellent. The performance, for the most part, is great. However, I really struggle when words are mispronounced by professional narrators. They should be held to a higher standard when it comes to the spoken word. I've noticed several words mispronounced in all of the books narrated by Conner Goff. I really applaud his performance, but get distracted and disappointed by the mispronounciations.

Good but not great

I liked the book but it wasn't as good as the first two. It was unrealistic in terms of, two of the bad things happened only because Nick did nothing to stop them.

Spoiler:
The fact that Nick didn't have protective detail on his mom or his girlfriend after she returned home seemed so ridiculous. I know these books are fiction but there's no way an agent wouldn't have people watching his family if someone was trying to kill them. He basically just let it happen. That really bothered me because he's not an idiot so I don't know why he's behaving like one in this book.

Getting Predictable

Really enjoyed the first couple of books. Was excited to see there were other books available in this series. However, except for a couple twists that this book offered, it left me feeling sad and disappointed. I will try the next book to see if it changes but if it continues along the same story lines and continuously used terms throughout the book, my readings will stop there.

A Real Cop-Out

Disappointing story after the first two excellent books in the series. Ridiculous ending and loss of great characters in the series so that romance can reign in the most trite of ways.

Way To Short

The third installment of the Nick Lawrence series is not at as good as the first two. The book is way short. The action so to speak feels rushed. The conspiracy feels convoluted.

excellent series!

Brian really is a good writer. I find this series to be way above others of this genre. The characters do get under your skin in good and bad ways. 3 excellent ending twists.
