Publisher's Summary

First Counsel: Booktrack Edition adds an immersive musical soundtrack to your audiobook listening experience!
White House lawyer Michael Garrick has a relatively anonymous position at a very public address. That is until he starts dating Nora Harston (Secret Service code name: Shadow), the sexy and dangerously irresistible daughter of the president. But the confident young attorney thinks he can handle the pressure. Until, out on a date, Nora and Michael see something they shouldn't. To protect her, he admits to something he shouldn't. And when a body is discovered and Michael is the suspected killer, he finds himself on the run. Now, in a world where power is an aphrodisiac and close friends carry guns and are under strict orders to risk their lives, Michael must find a way to prove his innocence.
Booktrack is an immersive format that pairs traditional audiobook narration and complementary music. The tempo and rhythm of the score are in perfect harmony with the action and characters throughout the audiobook. Gently playing in the background, the music never overpowers or distracts from the narration so that listeners can enjoy every minute. When you purchase this Booktrack edition, you receive the exact narration as the traditional audiobook available, with the addition of music throughout.

Less is more...

The story was ok, the president's daughter was a little far fetched...and what the main character put up with from her was on the verge of unbelievable. What I found to be annoying was the additional sound effects added...crowd noises, phones ringing, driving in a car-doors slamming, very distracting and took away from the intensity of Scott Brick's performance (which is always stellar!)

Music and sound effect: Bad idea!

The musical background was distracting. Scott Brick is a GREAT narrator but the music took away from his delivery. Interesting character development but this is one book I'd suggest reading rather than listening to.
