Publisher's Summary

Best-selling author, Allen Wyler, (Dead End Deal, Deadly Errors, Dead Ringer, Dead Wrong) is back with a new breakout suspense thriller with a techno edge, Deadly Odds.

Twenty-three year old Arnold Gold is a Seattle-based odds-maker and local computer genius. Described as a 'part-time hacker and full-time virgin' by his friends, the awkward young shut-in flies to Vegas to try and get lucky - in more ways than one. But his high stakes activity on the Net inadvertently thrusts him into a vortex of international terrorism.

Dark Net Hacking has resulted in murder, and now it will take every last bit of Arnold's genius intellect and legendary hacking skill to stay one step ahead of the murderous terrorists, the FBI, the local cops and his lawyer. Gold's only chance to save himself is to find the location of a bomb hidden somewhere in Vegas, and somehow prevent the explosion that will turn Sin City into the scene of the deadliest terror attacks since 9/11 Wyler's wild new thriller is as horrifyingly plausible as it is darkly funny and enjoyable.

Deadly Odds is not only a pause-resisting listen, it's a terrific character-driven story about a young man who lives life through a computer and discovers its dark side. Edgy, twitchy and filled with enough tech savvy detail to keep both the techno-thriller and classic suspense fan enthralled, Deadly Odds is a new generation's thrill ride.

Where was the editor???

I believe a good editor could have saved this storyline by omitting and/or re-phrasing the repetitive qualities the main character exhibited.

Mediocre

The author created an unbelievably naive main character who I just couldn’t believe. The narrator’s lack of inflection and phrasing plodded along making parts that could have been exciting as mundane as background information.

I bought it on sale on a whim. I was pleasantly surprised. I'll buy more from this author.

just let the main character die

The story could be half as long if all dialog with the nerdy computer genus main character who over thinking every move, should I or shouldn't I, what if this or maybe that was just cut out of the story. By the end of the book I was hoping that he would just made a decision on something even if it he decision killed him as I just wanted the story to end. the main character wasn't very likable and the story dragged on and on. Thankfully it was free book and no money wasted on it.

Worth your time

I enjoyed the entire book. I was entertained the whole way through. The narrator did a great job as well keeping me engaged.

Save me from whiny millennials

This audiobook could have been shortened by half had all the repetitive description and whining been omitted. The story was interesting but the plodding details just caused it to drag.

The narrator did a good job in that he conveyed the whiny, self-absorbed millennial quite well, but the near monotone was aggravating.

I was hoping to find a new series, but this will not be it. I could not take it.

Monotone narration

The storyline was okay but sometimes felt like it wasn’t going anywhere. The narration is pretty monotone and doesn’t much change the voices between characters, sometimes making it hard to follow.

Stupid

Nobody is as stupid and unlucky as our hero. Especially since he’s in the top ten percent of the most intellectual people in the world.
