Where does The Inquisitor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?
It was a surprisingly strong top tier read - story and narrator. Wasn't sure I'd like it but couldn't wait to jump back in on my commute each day to see how it all turned out.
What other book might you compare The Inquisitor to and why?
It falls into the Mitch Rapp/Vince Flynn camp - shorter, not as in depth in detail but certainly a fast read with the elements of suspense, revenge and the depths the inquisitor goes to for the truth.
What about Ari Fliakos’s performance did you like?
I liked it - took a bit to get used to as the narrator was a new voice for me - but it worked well as it adopted the persona of the key players in the story arc.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Parts made me squirm but not to the point of distraction from the overall story. Just enough to bring you into the inquisitor's mind and persona in full support of the story.

Would you consider the audio edition of The Inquisitor to be better than the print version?
I don't know. I didn't read the print version.
Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?
The first two thirds of the book were written well, and were very interesting, but weren't actually all that "thrilling." I don't mean this as a critique. It did not detract from my enjoyment of the book at all. I'm just stating facts. I think that the entire first part was a great build up to the climax -- where all the excitement and fear and mystery happened.
The last third of the book was extremely intense. It did keep me wanting to listen...
Which character – as performed by Ari Fliakos – was your favorite?
I think Ari Fliakos is one of my favorite narrators of all audiobooks. I think he embodies every character to a perfect point.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
I think the part where our anti-hero, Geiger, has his "breakthrough" is especially engrossing. It was both sad and intense at the same time. It was well past my bedtime, but I couldn't stop the book. I had to listen to the end of that section. I felt awful and empathetic and scared all at the same time.
Any additional comments?
I wouldn't have bought this book if Ari Fliakos wasn't the narrator. Meaning, the only reason the book came on my radar was because I was searching his name. I'm glad i happened upon it, because it was an exciting and intense story about an extremely interesting character with a dangerous and kind of sickening job.
