As soon as I finished the audio I raced out for the hardback to send as gifts to my kids and husband! As current as tomorrow's headlines, and probably at least as informative, this is the best espionage/suspense novel since the Cold War ended. Whitcomb's writing is equal to the story he tells, but I do agree that for the first half of the book the narrator's gasping for breath was annoying. At times he seemed to be yawning(!), but by the second half I was so absorbed in the tale I never again noticed any distraction. Great read; great listen.

This book has attributes to commend it. Seemingly diverse characters being inexplicably drawn together being most notable.
I'm a mystery buff; I'm so because I love the challenge of being presented with facts to solve the mystery. I rarely, fully succeed but I enjoy trying.
This novel does not offer such a senerio. It deceives the reader from page one and results in an incredulous and unsatisfying ending. It smells of sequels, sequels I'll not be reading.
Give me Sanford, Marsh, Connelly, McBain, et. al. any day.
