Publisher's Summary

The number-one New York Times best-selling author is back with an electrifying new entry in the FBI series featuring Dillon Savich and Lacey Sherlock.

FBI Special Agent Griffin Hammersmith, last seen in Backfire, has been recruited by Dillon Savich to join his unit in Washington, D.C. Savich sees something special in Hammersmith, an almost preternatural instinct for tracking criminals. While on his way to D.C., Hammersmith plans to visit his sister, Delsey, a student at Stanislaus School of Music in Maestro, Virginia. Before he arrives, he gets a phone call that Delsey has been found naked and unconscious, lying in a pool of blood, after a wild party. The blood isn’t hers - so to whom does it belong? Griffin must protect Delsey, but from whom?

Meanwhile, back in D.C., FBI Agents Savich and Sherlock have their hands full when the grandson of a former Federal Reserve Bank chairman is found murdered, every bone in his body broken, his corpse frozen at the foot of the Lincoln Memorial. Was it revenge against his grandfather for the banking crisis, or something more insidious and personal?

It’s a bitter winter, and in the endless cold, evil lurks.

Poor Narration

Is there anything you would change about this book?

The narration

If you’ve listened to books by Catherine Coulter before, how does this one compare?

It is hard to get past the poor narration. It changes the whole timber of the book.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

Jim Meskimen and Deanne Hurst. Actually I have been happy with all the narrators up until this one.

Any additional comments?

The narration can make or break a book

Typical Catherine Coulter

The storyline is typical of the author...not very deep...you need not think too much about what's going on. Unfortunately, Paul Costanzo is a rather bad narrator and Renee Raudman isn't much better. (We get spoiled by the really good narrators.)

Narration so bad I wish I'd bought print version

I've loved all Coulters previous FBI books, but the narration is so bad in this one I put it down after a half hour. I'll wait for it to be available through the library.
I see the same team has done some of the others, but they must have been the ones I read in print.
This team sounds like amateurs reading to an elementary school class and I will not buy another book with these narrators.

Hard to listen to!

Is there anything you would change about this book?

the Narrator!

Would you recommend Bombshell to your friends? Why or why not?

Not particularly

How could the performance have been better?

The Narration was so distracting, I had a very difficult time following the story. If the Narrator is a professional, why would he be so dull, so choppy and do such a bad job adapting his voice to the male characters??

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

I would probably need to read the book first - to see if I enjoy the story.

Any additional comments?

HELP! My ears are protesting!!

Worst narration of any book

I couldn't finish due narration. It was choppy and sounded like someone in grade school was reading to me. Wasted a credit on this one.

No Character in the Narration, Too Precise

Is there anything you would change about this book?

Story line was pretty good though expected. Narration was too precise, no character, no emotion.

Enjoyed book!

What made the experience of listening to Bombshell the most enjoyable?

Paul Costanza did an excellent job as one of the narrators but Renee Raudmans voice was very annoying because she has a hissing sound to her "S's" I would have preferred if Mr. Costanza had read the entire book.

Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s performances?

If Ms. Raudman would stop hissing, I would be happy to listen to both of them. This problem was especially obvious when the consonant "S' was at the end of a word.

The worst Narration I have every Heard.

What did you like best about Bombshell? What did you like least?

Best - Story, but hard to follow because I kept dropping off because of the poor Narration.<br/><br/>Worst - The worst Narration I have every Heard. If I wanted to listen to a mono-tone I would have returned to High School History Class.

Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ?

Nearly anyone else. Some one with felling and excitement in their voices.

Did Bombshell inspire you to do anything?

Restart each chapter. Needed to because ..... well see above.

Poor narration by Paul Costanzo

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

Because the male narration was so awful, this was a book I would have preferred to read.

Would you recommend Bombshell to your friends? Why or why not?

The book yes, but I would never recommend the audiobook. The male narration was stiff and unnatural, more like reading.

Would you be willing to try another one of Renee Raudman and Paul Costanzo ’s performances?

No

Did Bombshell inspire you to do anything?

No

Any additional comments?

The male narration was so bad I will avoid books narrated by him in the future.
