Fascinating Premise

Excellent story for first time author Jon M. Decker Sr. He had to do tons of research, especially regarding Frank and his knowledge of geology. Before I forget another reviewer also mentioned this, in chapter 10 and again in chapter 12, several times statements were repeated, maybe the editors can update future books and fix that little annoying problem, I don't know how hard that would be, but don't let this small problem deter you from getting this most excellent story. The characters were very believable and the storyline flowed very nicely, and there was just the right amount of humor in this story,,,I would recommend this story to everybody. The narrating done by Bill Burrows was spot on, I received this audiobook in a promo and this is my honest unbiased review.

I enjoyed this action packed adventure

This turns into an amazing ear-catching story. I read the synopsis and was intrigued. Then once I started I kept waiting and waiting I was thinking I missed something. I wasn’t it’s just there is a long lead up to what the synopsis is talking about. I got very involved in their lives and dealing with the politic of their job in the meantime. After “the incident” it becomes very fast paced and a lot of action as I watch these characters vie for their lives. Overall I enjoyed the story immensely and the characters are really lively. I did listen to this on audio. Bill Burrows did a good job with the voices. In Chapter 10 it seemed multiple lines were repeated.

Great Story!

I really liked this tale of murder, mystery and intrigue. I really hope there's a book 2 in the works. Otherwise, the ending is awful.

Never a dull moment!

I was given this free audiobook copy by the author, and my review is honest and voluntary. It amazes me that this is the work of a first time author! I couldn’t stop listening! What a fantastic story line too. Very unique, and the surprises and shocks kept coming! I will definitely be following this author in the future. The narrator did a superb job too in bringing the characters to life. I don’t have any negative criticism of this audiobook at all...I simply loved it and can’t wait for more! I can see this book being the basis for a great tv/Netflix type of series! Wow! I’d definitely recommend reading the book or listening to the audiobook (especially since the narrator was so great)!

A true page turner

I did receive this book for free in exchange for a honest review. This book was one of those books that you just dont want to put down. You just have to keep on reading to fi d out what is going on. The author did a really good job of pacing the story and had really developed characters. The narrator had a very compelling voice that works well with the various characters. The plot of this book is intense and will keep you guessing for who the bad guys are. So I have no problem recommending this book and author to others. Happy Reading!

New Author

Hidden Faults : Jon M. Decker Sr This is a thriller/ suspense that pits science and politics against each other. The listener will have to try and guess who are the good guys and the bad guys. This was an enjoyable listen. The narration was well done. The characters were well portrayed. Bill Burrows gave a good performance. I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

An entertaining story of corporate greed

An enjoyable story with loads of detail and plenty of action throughout. Some technical stuff that went over my head but it did help to draw me in to the book. The only negative was the narration which, although professionally read by Bill Burrows who has a good voice for it, caused a little confusion due to the lack distinction between character voices. For example I found that Scott & Frank sounded exactly the same, which made following conversations between them difficult. There wasn't enough difference between others to make speech obviously attributable to each character. All in all though, a good first novel and well worth a read. I received a free copy of this audiobook either from the author or a promotion or giveaway and am voluntarily writing an honest and unbiased review.

Hidden faults

This was an interesting listen. It was a big step away from my usual listen but it was good. I really think the build up was too long and then it finished just like that.

A strong first novel

A great plot, developing characters and an easy to listen to narration. I've read the book as well, but would find this a perfect story to come to on audible without any prior knowledge. I'm looking forward to the next...
