I usually fly through Greg Hurwitz's novels. But this one - just really really dark and I'd have to say way too dark for me.... The lead character is a vet with a terminal diagnosis of ALS, and he sees his dead best friend/fellow soldier in disturbing visions. While the story was interesting and the lead character sympathetic, I found the story mentally difficult to read ... As is the author's way, the story is filled with thrills and chills and horrific bad guys, but I found myself picking up and putting down the story several times before finally finishing it. I guess I wasn't in the mood for a dark and depressing storyline - so I had to give it 3 stars because I literally forced myself to finish the book... That said, I will still wait feverishly for all new books by this author - I'm a huge fan, but this one just didn't work for me.
Jeff Harding was good with the delivery of the story

I enjoyed it as much as the far fetched but action packed Matthew Reilly books most of which I own.

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
Any additional comments?
The narrator did a great job of differenciating between the characters. I was never at a loss as to who was who.

A real page turner. Had a sleepless night listening to it - it is that good!

I really struggled to get through this book. While it started out fairly well, it fell apart with the annoying reactions of some characters and what I found to be an unpleasant performance by the narrator.
I've enjoyed other Hurwitz books, ie the orphan series, but this one really turned me off.
