As a die hard Baldacci fan, the story, as usual, is excellent. My only criticism is the narrator(s) sounded a bit 'too Southern twangy'.
I will listen to anything read by Ron McLarty. He is among my favorite narrators which is how I was introduced to John Puller. Seems like Puller and Jack Reacher are very similar. This story was interesting but not the thriller of the previous Puller stories. I enjoyed the introduction of the older brother, Bobby Puller. I would like to see John and Bobby work together again in some capacity. There was very little chemistry between J. Puller and agent Knox. (Spoiler alert)During most of the story Puller didn't trust her and at the end he felt that she was someone with whom he could spend the rest of his life.(gag). Some of what happens in this story is pure fiction. There does not exist a super max prison only for military prisoners operated by lay people. The technology utilized in the story is right on point. Tracking devices, GPS, cell phones are all current uses of technology. However, being able to send and receive text messages while driving at a high rate of speed, and being shot at, is questionable. It was good to see a woman, Reynolds, who happens to be a mother, be the lead criminal mind of the events. She has other skills that make her a formidable opponent.
While I liked the story and will listen to it again, it is not among my top ten. There are parts that seemed to drag when explaining technology or when there is a shoot out. For listeners who enjoy espionage, I would recommend this book.
