A Very Frustrating Intro to a Frustrating Series
Spy vs spy- but poorly done
Only a few chapters in, and I am turned off by the betrayal alluded to between the main characters. Perhaps the author is just being clever and burying the truth in the storyline, but the twists and turns have left me confused. I find I lack the energy at the moment to get through it. For pity's sake, the whole reason I'm mad for audiobooks is that for the first time in years, I am able to "read" books for pleasure while multitasking. Can't do that if I have to take notes. I'll have to set this one aside for now, but if I find time to listen to it again (from the beginning to the end) I'll update my comments. On the flip side, Derek Perkins consistently delivers a solid, versatile performance, and is the reason I am willing to give this one another try.
