Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
Absolutely ! Wasn't sure who was a good guy/who was a bad guy. You don't find out until almost the end of the book to find out who is what and why they are doing what they are doing.
Have you listened to any of Xe Sands’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Have never listened to Xe Sands before but she does a great job narrating.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Without a doubt. I listened to this book in one day. My next purchase will be the next book in the series.
Any additional comments?
This is a new author for me. I purchased this book after reading Wayne's review. I have found a few good authors by following him.
This book is fast paced and kept my attention. There are no lags and the suspense keeps building right to the last sentence.

The quote above form the last 6 words in 'Burnout'. The last 3 words in my title are mine. AAARGH!
This thing's got more holes than a lace curtain, but without the artistry. Winters hoped that his adequately talented ability to write dialogue and action would fire up massively suspended disbelief. Hope is for bumper stickers or American Presidential campaigns. Hope is neither a business nor a plotting strategy.
OK, curious about how implausible this writer might get I listened to the end. He exceeded all expectations. Xe Sands reads very well... Normally I'd say acted instead of reads... But there's too little fodder here to fire an actor's imagination. The large cast of characters offer only moist kindling, but I will look forward someday to listening to Sands bring a more talented writer's work to life.
The largest question I'm left with ... I'll share.... SPOILER ALERT! There's a lead character on death row here around whom the entire plot swirls. With no forensics, why'd the police ever pick him up to begin with? How'd he wind up in a lineup?
Save your credit... buy something else. As for me? 'It's over now. It's finally over.' Thank you God!
