Imagine a World Where No Information is Secure.
A riveting and wild ride that will grab hold of you and won't let go...
Two long years have passed since the death of Detective Jonathan Grace's wife. Turning to alcohol as a crutch for coping with the pain and loss of his past, he's half the man he once was.
Defeated and physically drained, his career is all but washed up when he gets a phone call in the middle of the night that flips his world upside down...
Somewhere out there in the world a device exists that will change everything... No information is safe. No information is secure.
After falling into the wrong hands, Jonathan Grace is tasked with locating the cipher in a trip that spans halfway across the globe. But he soon finds out that nothing is as it seems...

Couldn't take it. Stopped listening at chapter 5

Would you try another book from Robert Stohn and/or Smokey Rivers?

No on both counts


What could Robert Stohn have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Learn to write. Seriously, I've never seen a writer depend so heavily on adjectives and cliches. Also, it would help if he actually learned about his subject so when he writes about the technical aspects of the plot, his (mis)use of the terminology isn't so cringeworthy.


How did the narrator detract from the book?

I listened to this book with my wife and her brother on a long road trip. The narrator didn't bother me all that much, but both wife and brother were complaining about the lack of affect in the narrator's voice before the end of the first chapter. They also commented on his inability to produce a realistic Italian accent.


You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

Not really. Maybe it could have later in the book... I just couldn't struggle through to find out.


Any additional comments?

I'm SHOCKED this book had 5 stars. It makes me question the integrity of Audible's rating system.

Intensely Gripping with an Engaging Mystery

What made the experience of listening to Cipher the most enjoyable?

"Cipher" is one of those novels that manages to very quickly hook you with a vivid and intensely gripping story... only to turn it on its head and then take you on a wildly action-packed ride as Detective Jonathan Grace finds himself on the hunt for the mysterious cipher, a program that could very well be a massive tool of destruction in the wrong hands. The novel is well-written with a lush writing style and an engaging plot; using authentic characters and strong dialogue, the author propels the plot along with amazing skill.


What does Smokey Rivers bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

What I liked about the audiobook and the narration is that it adds a new element to the story, helping to bring dimension, emotion and nuances to the novel that I might have missed if I just read the book. The narrator has a gift for sucking the audience in and keeping you eagerly listening from start to finish.
