Publisher's Summary

 The Lion's Game adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!*

Booktrack editions are essentially a new genre of digital storytelling entertainment. Music and ambient audio are added to complement and enhance the audiobook experience. It is a synchronized movie-style soundtrack that complements the narration of existing audiobooks; the tempo and rhythm of the score harmonize with action, dialogue, and the characters' emotional arcs. 

"The Lion" will be landing. And at New York's JFK Airport, an elite American task force waits as the notorious Libyan terrorist prepares to defect to the West. Then, aboard Flight 175, something goes eerily, horribly wrong - a mere prelude to the terror that is to come. Ex-NYPD cop, now Federal Task Force agent John Corey - together with his formidable and beautiful new partner, Kate Mayfield - will follow a trail of smoke and blood across the country. His quarry: a foe with the cunning of a lion and all the bloodlust of a man. To win a desperate game with no rules at all, Corey must invent a strategy that leaves no room for mistakes.

*Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration to 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 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.

Audiobook with music for a 4hr drive? YES!!

I've been reading lots of conspiracy theory/political suspense/mystery fiction books by different authors. After reading Night Fall by Nelson DeMille, I knew I had to read the John Corey series. But since my work requires that I travel from one city to another and monthly international flights, there really was no time for my kind of leisure (reading a good book with the smell of a freshly roasted coffee in the comforts of my home). Enter Audiobook! Good heavens I love how it's so convenient!And since I've been purchasing Booktrack edition audiobooks, every listening second made me feel like I was actually there!
I listened to The Lion's Game for the first time during my 4hr drive and oh man the suspenseful/investigative soundtrack along with the warm voice of the narrator kept me awake! Totally crushing on the smartass and humorous John Corey, I imagined I was Kate Mayfield lol. I liked the plot though some parts were a little slow.

But yeah, I TOTALLY LOVED THE MOVIE-LIKE EXPERIENCE. The music just made the experience even more compelling.
I'm so down for more of these! Two thumbs up for the production of this book.

Annoying music track. Buy the other version

Great book, and great narration. The sound track is really obnoxious, and really makes for a difficult listen. It seems so random and out of place. Scott Brick is a top notch narrator, one of the best in the business. There’s no need to undermine his work with a trash soundtrack (any sound track).

This is an old book! What is up with the music.

This is a redo of an old book! What is up with the music in the background while Scott is narrating?

Why spoil such a great book?

Absolutely great book spoiled by senseless background music which wasn't even musical. This was so annoying and disturbing it took away from the greatness of the story. Who's idea was to do this? My mind, instead of enjoying the book, was totally distracted and I had to endure this nonsense.

Who’s idea was the music?

You ruined my experience with the music. I got all the way through the book but the music made me almost give up.

Get rid of the background noise.

would have been a solid 5 except for the cheesy background music and sound effects. Just takes away from a really good narrator.

Waaaaaaaaay too much profanity

Stories keep me interested ... the language is very off-putting ... too much f-you’s and f-ing f f f ... surely people have better vocabularies than this.
