Publisher's Summary

It's July 5th, and the Cape Cod roadways are clogged with tourists heading home from the holiday weekend and trying to outrun an approaching potentially catastrophic hurricane. But in the blink of an eye, their lives are thrown into chaos when terrorists bring down the bridges to the Cape. Instantly, a half million terrified people have no way to escape. And when the terrorists threaten to release anthrax on the captive population if their demands aren't met, fear turns to all-out panic.
With time running out, Marcus Baldwin, a private investigator and former CIA operative, and Sara Cross, a disgraced ex-homicide detective, are brought together by a sole clue to the identity of the terrorists. They quickly realize that they may be the only ones with even a chance at stopping the plot before it's too late.
With Hurricane Chad barreling up the coast on a path for a direct hit on Cape Cod, it becomes frighteningly clear to everyone trapped on what has now become an island - one way or another they are probably all going to die.

Thrilling.

I didn't read any reviews of this and only skimmed the blurb before starting and I have to say that I thoroughly enjoyed it!

Plot wise, this takes place in Cape Cod on the July 4th weekend. It's July 5th and the celebrations are over and people are starting to return home, but there is a storm coming the likes of which haven't been seen in a long time! People need to leave the Island as soon as possible but as they are, the bridges in an out of the Island blow up. Terrorists are holding the people hostage and have said they will release Anthrax if their demands aren't met. The plot was well written and developed and it flowed well. It's terrifying enough with a category 4 hurricane barreling towards you, but add in the Terrorists and it created a fast paced and thrilling read!

Character wise, there were a few, we even see through the eyes of some of the terrorists, but all were well written. I liked Marcus, who is a private eye and was hired to follow a suspect for a rich client. He was calm, capable and a nice guy. Then we have Sara, a former cop who was fired for having drugs in her car, which just happened to be placed there by her boss whom hit on her and she stopped his advances. She teams up with Marcus to try to find out what is happening to her Island. I enjoyed the relationship between Marcus and Sara and hope we see more from them.

In all, this was a good read. I enjoyed both the terrorist story line and the storm story line. Both blend seamlessly together near the end and made for an exciting and fast paced read. I will definitely check out more from this author.

Greg Hernandez did a good job reading this. His voice was clear and easy to follow, I just felt he lacked a little in the performance part. I wanted him to add more tension when needed as, at the exciting bits, his pace stayed the same. Other than that he did fine.

I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

A really good mystery/action/detective story

Would you consider the audio edition of Deadly Shore to be better than the print version?

Audio is better. I found this book to be intriguing right from the jump. I was compelled to read it though almost in one straight sitting. It is full of complex characters and a gripping story. There are so many unique individual characters with their concurrent stories as well as the main plot , that the author does a masterful job of keeping all the arcs going smoothly forward. I would recommend this book to fans of mystery and detective works. It was really enjoyable.
