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.

What made the experience of listening to Deadly Shore the most enjoyable?
Clean cut story that moves.
What about Greg Hernandez’s performance did you like?
Solid performance that in no way distracted from the story.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Yes. There were no slow parts. The main characters were likable and the premise, though a bit over the top, put you in the "what would I do" frame of mind.
