Publisher's Summary

First Counsel: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!

White House lawyer Michael Garrick has a relatively anonymous position at a very public address. That is until he starts dating Nora Harston (Secret Service code name: Shadow), the sexy and dangerously irresistible daughter of the president. But the confident young attorney thinks he can handle the pressure. Until, out on a date, Nora and Michael see something they shouldn't. To protect her, he admits to something he shouldn't. And when a body is discovered and Michael is the suspected killer, he finds himself on the run. Now, in a world where power is an aphrodisiac and close friends carry guns and are under strict orders to risk their lives, Michael must find a way to prove his innocence.

Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration and complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration so that listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

    "Less is more..."

    The story was ok, the president's daughter was a little far fetched...and what the main character put up with from her was on the verge of unbelievable. What I found to be annoying was the additional sound effects added...crowd noises, phones ringing, driving in a car-doors slamming, very distracting and took away from the intensity of Scott Brick's performance (which is always stellar!)

    "Good plot"

    The plot is good with great twists. The summery said that the music in the back ground isn’t distracting, humm I had a very hard time listening to this book. Maybe it’s just me but the sound effects were very distracting which made it very hard to follow the story line.

    "Great storyline"

    Great storyline, great performance the Primos was a little far-fetched as was a few of the actions of our protagonist.but I tend to gauge a book is a great book if I look for reasons to get back in the car to listen to it. That's the way this one was. I think you'll enjoy it.

    "Very enjoyable with a blindsided twist. "

    You will never see it coming. Great listen if you enjoy thrillers. The only negative I have was that the background sounds, no matter how subtle, we're distracting.

    "Story great, Presentation distracting"
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    Take away the background sounds and music


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Norah, wild chick


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Scott is my favorite narrator


    Could you see First Counsel being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    yes


    Any additional comments?

    The music and background noises were to much. They made the story difficult to follow by being distracting and making the narration hard to hear.
