One of my favorite reviewer's gave this audiobook 5 stars but I could not make it past chapter 7. Shaking my head I jumped to the last four chapters to see if I was right and found I was.
This audiobook is too predictable.
I like this author very much, but he preached to the point of making me bored.
The ending is so neatly wrapped up that it needs a bow.
I recommend sticking with the earlier audiobooks in this series.

Any additional comments?
This is another one of my favorite series. I have listened to all of the Jonathan Stride books at least twice (I like reruns when I have nothing new to listen to). I can't say enough about the books other than to recommend them all.
In this book there is a marathon going on in the city of Duluth, Minnesota. As the runners begin crossing the finish line a knapsack containing a bomb inside a glass fronted store is detonated. A few people die, many are injured.
One man believes he saw the culprit and finds a picture of him on the internet, he posts the picture and tells people that this is the man responsible. One problem, the picture is that of an innocent man. What follows is a series of tragedies, more people die unnecessarily. An entire city is out for vengeance/justice and an innocent man is on the run but not without suffering a personal tragedy himself because of the vigilantes.
While all this is going on there is another background storyline. A woman has moved into town who is an advocate of civil rights and racial profiling, meaning she is very outspoken about people who appear to be middle eastern and calling all believers in the Muslim religion murderers. She incites people to take action.
The two plots collide in an explosive (but believable) ending.
EXCELLENT book, fast paced with out a single dull moment.
Joe Barrett narrates the book (as well as all the other Stride books). He does an Outstanding job.
This book has my HIGHEST RECOMMENDATION!!!!
