The Eight was a fantastic read and it must have been tough to create the logical completion of the story but Katherine Neville did it skillfully. If you intend to read this you must read The Eight first as much of the material in The Fire is best understood after reading The Eight. I thought Susan Denaker did a good job of reading the book, maybe some of her accents weren't perfect but you can tell who's speaking and still keep your mind on your driving. Audible needs to fix part 3 as one chapter is repeated back to back.

My wife and I also had read Neville's novel "The Eight" and were looking forward to her latest work. What a disappointment.
The previous reviewer is spot on. The story is confusing with a lot of loose ends never tied up. For a mystery/thriller, the literary technique is rather amateurish, inventing solutions to some problems which the reader could not possibly have guessed or deduced.
A great deal of time is spent developing the historical framework, but it is hardly significant as presented and could have been done much better.
Don't waste you time...
