Evil protagonist makes this story

Give me a really bad guy who will likely get his comeuppance and I think you have the basics for a good thriller. Greg Iles gives us one of these evil creeps in the person of Joe Hickey. I'm not sure John Sandford or Jeffrey Deaver, two authors who forge mighty nasty characters, have ever given us anyone who can compare with Joe. Iles balances out Joe's evilness with the gentle giant, Huey. You're never sure what final road Huey will take but, deep down, you hope it will be the right one. All the other characters exist simply to keep the story moving. And move it does during a 24-hour period that should keep iPods operating from start to finish well within that time frame. An excellent thriller with good narration by Dick Hill who, believe it or not, never once said, "Reacher said nothing." Well worth a credit.

Exciting Book, so well read

This one kept me wanting more. The bad guys were very scary and yet one was quite likable at times. The characters are so well fleshed out, you feel like you know what makes each of them tick; you find yourself often cheering on the good guys.
This book keeps the listener on the edge of her/his seat throughout.
The narrator is one of the best in the field. I'm downloading more of this author's novels.
