Already an international sensation, with his books translated into 15 languages - in the UK alone, Panic has more than 400,000 copies in print - Jeff Abbott is a master of the action-packed thriller. Now, with Collision, he delivers a meaty, twisty, white-knuckle ride designed to propel him onto the bestseller lists in his home country.
"Electric with action and lightning-paced, I literally could not put it down. Don't miss it." (Harlan Coben)
"Relentless, smart, and heartbreaking, Collision is the thriller to read this year." (Joseph Finder)

Action Without Adventure
Maybe this was a first novel? Nope, this is what Abbott does all the time I guess. Anorexic characterization that's much fatter than the plot. If you believe any of this tale, hey… I've got a pair of bridges that are totally cheap… lemme know, K? It reminded me of the early summer blockbuster movies… Back in the 70s… The ones that were all shoot-em-up car chases. Fine for the times, but un-viewable today. This story wouldn't get green-lighted for cable TV.
I stopped listening three times, but finally,with nothing else on my iPod and a long gym workout to fill… it got finished with an ending that was unexpected as a baby's birth gender after a first trimester ultrasound.
Maybe this is aimed at prepubescent reading-challenged males? Actually I'm thinking that the interminable action scenes may have been assignments to the author in a creative writing class that he sort ran back to back without bothering to imagine a story for glue?
Phil Gigante made a buck here, probably deserved, not so much for his performance which is OK, but for his tenacity in reading "Collision".

a worthwhile purchase
A little confusing during first half hour and a little too drawn out last hour but all in all the story developed well and the characters were interesting. Fast paced and NOT boring. The narrator was excellent and deserves 5 stars. He really made the book for me.
