Exceeded my expectations

I don't know why I wasn't expecting a lot from this book but I was pleasantly surprised. The really bad guys were really bad and the protagonist had enough likable qualities to keep you rooting for him. Maybe it was because the last book I listened to was so bad that this one seemed exceptional. I liked the story, the characters and the author's ability to make me want to continue listening. The narration was excellent too.

Good read (or listen), but not Perry's best

Many of the Amazon reviews downgrade this novel b/o its implausibility. I have to agree that it requires several leaps of faith to accept its premise, but then I've found that many of Dean Koontz's and Stephen King's works are implausible, but I still enjoy them immensely. Perry is a good enough writer that I had no trouble dealing with the unbelievable parts, and I enjoyed the novel without difficulty. And Kramer's narration was excellent.
