Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?
Probably not, but only because the mystery books I like my friends often don’t. Everyone is comparing this to Dan Brown’s book and while I did read that, I did it begrudgingly. I would be more inclined to recommend this book over “The Da Vinci Code.”
Who was your favorite character and why?
Harold the cabbie. He just seemed like what I would expect a typical cabbie to be. Enjoyed their drive time banter and the rest of their interactions.
Who was your least character and why?
Moe. I assume he is a grown adult and said cray cray. I cannot stand that word.
What about Tom Lennon’s performance did you like?
I enjoyed his voice and thought his cadence and tone was good for the story. I did notice that he mispronounced a few words which bothered me. Every now and then I thought someone else was narrating the story so he had some accents that totally threw me off which was a nice bonus.

For readers who enjoyed "The Da Vinci Code," Brownstone is sure to delight. Jack Elliott is a journalist who unwittingly becomes the target of an ancient covert religious order. Tripping through present-day New York City, he uncovers evidence of a centuries-old coverup that could rock the foundations of Christianity. He also learns of dark family secrets which cause him to question many of his beliefs. And all the while, he's being hunted down like prey.
The beginning moved a little slowly for my taste, but it picked up speed before midway through. The ending left me feeling satisfied, whilst setting the stage for the next installment (which I'm yearning to begin). Narrator, Tom Lennon, does a marvelous job here. There were a couple of mispronounced words (such as "carotid"), but in no way did they affect the context or my understanding of the story. I increased the narration speed to 1.05%. Overall, very well done!
I received a promotional copy of this audiobook for free in exchange for an unbiased review. Many thanks to the narrator for this opportunity!

First of all I have to say the following:
This book was given to me for free at my request and I provided this voluntary review.
Now I have that out the way,I can tell you that I found this to be a well written and an exciting read that had me hooked from the start. If you're a fan of Sam Bourne, Dan Brown or Steve Berry then this book is right up your street. Set against the backdrop of modern day New York, this fast paced biblical conspirisy thriller will take you on a twisting turning journey before revealing the final - and biggest plot twist of all!
Brownstone was more than ably narrated by the excellent Tom Lennon and I can honestly say I'm very much looking forward to reading the rest of the upcoming series.
