Publisher's Summary

Jessica Norton is a woman on the run, a sensational lead item on the nightly news, accused of the murders of four of her fellow staffers for a US senator. Jon Harper is a grieving father whose life has crumbled over the death of his young daughter. When Jon picks up Jess hitchhiking on a deserted Texas highway one rainy night, he is pitched into the middle of a massive conspiracy, one that threatens the very future of the United States.

From having nothing to live for, Jon suddenly finds himself the protector of someone with everything to live for, someone desperate to uncover the conspiracy that has ruined her life. Staying two steps ahead of the police, and barely one step ahead of the powerful organization that wants Jess dead, Jon discovers that Jess is harboring a secret of her own, a strange inner "voice" providing cryptic clues for them to follow.

Part political thriller and part chase novel, Wisdom Spring takes listeners on a fast-paced, suspenseful ride along the highways of the US and Canada, into the far reaches of the Alaskan wilderness. Along the way, the two unlikely heroes transition from helpless prey into proficient hunters as the mysterious clues eventually lead them to a violent final confrontation with corrupt forces at the highest levels of government.

    Wisdom Spring
    : Andrew Cunningham

    This is the first book I've listened to by this author. This one features both male and female protagonists that are running from their past. They meet up and the suspense begins. Throw in a wacky government conspiracy a bit of romance and lots of action. This was a good listen.



    The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed, by Greg Hernandez.

    "Intriguing Thriller with a paranormal twist"

    Wisdom Spring was a fun read from start to end. Twists and turns abound in this fast-paced thriller along with some clever rouses. Jon, the main character, is engaging and I love the twist with Jess hearing a helpful voice in her head; the voice sent the story in unexpected directions. Greg's delivery was well done; he became the main character allowing me to experience the story all the more.

    If you're a fan of Clive Cussler's treasure hunting duo, the Fargos, you'll love Jess and Jon's adventure. It has one hell of an ending.

    Story
    "Enjoyable."

    Jon is a man on a mission. His mission being that he reaches his brothers remote house and live life simply for a while, but when he picks up a hitch hiker named Jessica, his life changes forever. He is thrown into a conspiracy so high up the ladder that both his and Jessica's life is in danger at every turn. Who can you trust when everyone seems out to get you?

    Plot wise, this was a fast paced and interesting read. The author wrote it well and had plenty of twists and turns that kept my attention throughout. Wisdom Springs itself was a unique and intriguing place and it would be nice to get a little novella about it!!!

    Character wise, I liked Jon. He is guilt ridden because he accidentally caused the death of his daughter by giving her an unapproved drug for her Cancer. She died as a result and Jon couldn't get his life back on track. He left his wife and job and went on the road. There he makes the decision to go to his brothers for a while but his life is about to get harder!!

    Jessica was intriguing. She found out something that got her 4 colleagues killed, which by sheer luck she escaped. Now she is on the run, and with the help of a "voice" and Jon, she needs to get to the bottom of it before she is killed. Jessica was brave, capable and easy to like. I was rooting for her and Jon throughout.

    In all, this was a fast paced read. It had plenty of action, lies and double crosses that kept me on the edge of my seat.

    This is the second book I've listened to by Greg Hernandez, and like the first, he is clear and concise and easy to listen to. I just found he lacked enthusiasm in the reading. I wanted him to get into the story a little more and preform it, not just read it. I'm hoping that with experience he will become a great narrator.

    I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

    "Great story line.. lovely narration !!"



    Loved the full cast, the accents, the ambient sounds. This was done immersively well! The stories are captivating and exciting, and the performances catch all of the subtle nuances that come from conversations so that it didn't feel like a book reading. I definitely recommend this. -

    "Great Story!! Sub-par narration..."

    I really enjoyed this... The author did an amazing job of keeping the reader on the edge of their seat. It's clear through the accurate and precise details of the story that Mr. Cunningham did a lot of research. It's political conspiracy thriller that definitely won't disappoint!

    The narration of this book was only "OK"... in the great audio books the narrator brings the story to life through his performance. Mr. Hernandez simply read the book. At times it was difficult to determine which character was actually speaking and many times his lack of enthusiasm made the story seem less interesting than it actually was.

    I finished the book in less than 48 hours and was impressed with the author's work.

    "Great book, not so great narration"

    This was an extremely interesting novel. I loved the concept that the author was shooting for. I found the characters engaging and extremely interesting. I am very sorry to say that I just didn't care for the narration though. It just seemed like he was trying to hard to me.

    Story
    "Action Packed"

    After causing the death of his daughter by trying an unapproved drug for her cancer, Jon Harper chucks everything and runs away from life. On a lonely Texas road he picks up a hitchhiker, Jessica Norton, who is also on the run, accused of murdering four of her colleagues, aides to a U.S. Senator who Jessica claims is not who he claims to be. She knows this because she hears a ‘voice’ in her head that seems to be guiding her to information that will answer all her questions, and that seems to have ‘guided’ her to Jon.
    In a very short time, Jon finds that he does in fact have a purpose in life; protecting Jessica as she seeks answers, while eluding the law and the powerful hidden group that wants her dead. The two find themselves running across Canada and the wilderness of Alaska, learning to be hunters rather than the hunted, just steps ahead of powerful forces.
    Wisdom Spring by Andrew Cunningham is a chilling thriller that goes behind the headlines and into the dark corridors of unchecked power at the highest levels. From a slow, dark start, the tension and pace ratchets up bit by bit and races to an explosive climax. Great summertime reading for people who like their action nonstop.
    I received a free copy of this book in exchange for my unbiased review.

    Greg Hernandez was OK with the delivery of the story

    "Excellent Thriller with a Paranormal Flavor"
    Any additional comments?

    Thrillers (especially conspiracy theory ones about the US government) usually are not my cup of tea. But "Wisdom Spring" was an absolutely phenomenal adventure that I had a really, really hard time putting down. A man and a woman are both running from a questionable past and some powerful, unseen forces. They team up in an attempt to stay alive. The characters in this book have an impressive depth and complexity that had me emotionally invested and excited to keep listening. There is also a satisfying paranormal element to this story that at first I was suspicious of, but then grew to really enjoy. I would recommend this book to anyone who enjoys a thriller involving conspiracy theories, the government, shoot outs, bad guys and some good old fashioned romance. Greg Hernandez gives a fabulous voice performance! "Wisdom Spring" gets a 10/10 from me.<br/><br/>I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.
