  • I really enjoyed this story. It had some really creative twists and turns, and the ending was satisfying. The characters felt believable and relatable. I'm definitely becoming a fan of Baldacci's works. However, I have to mention something about Scott Brick's narration. It was quite hyperactive and fast-paced. Listening to him deliver this story was almost as difficult as trying to read this sentence! The first three hours were a bit challenging, and I almost gave up listening. I found myself constantly using the reverse button to go back and re-listen because the rapid delivery made me miss some details. There were many instances where there was no pause when the story changed scenes, characters, or chapters, which was quite disconcerting. I've listened to Brick narrate other audiobooks, and I know he has other delivery styles that are more enjoyable. I'm not sure if it was the producer's direction for this particular book to speed things up, but it didn't work well for me. Overall, I would rate David Baldacci's story as an A, but Scott Brick's narration gets an F.
  • Like many have mentioned, the motive behind the crimes was a bit far-fetched. It became necessary for me to backtrack multiple times due to the abundance of characters and potential culprits in the storyline, making it difficult to keep up. Nevertheless, I found the audiobook to be a thrilling and fast-paced experience.
  • I gave Baldacci a try a few years back, but his book was so forgettable that I can't even recall its title. However, despite that, I decided to give him another chance because of his continued popularity. But here's the lesson I learned: don't expect the general public to appreciate anything beyond the average in any field they delve into. Yes, I understand that this is fiction, but Baldacci really pushes the boundaries of believability with his endless improbable situations and solutions. It's hard to imagine how his plot elements even remotely connect to reality. He tends to solve problems through random intuitive leaps or sudden epiphanies that don't have any basis in the information presented earlier in the story. And if that wasn't enough, there are plenty of superhuman characters thrown into the mix, making you question why you're still reading or listening to this stuff. It feels like Baldacci is just coasting on his previous successes, which I can't quite comprehend.
