Answer to two of the questions you might have ...

If you are an incarnated Preston/Child fan, you are most likely asking yourself: “Is it of the same quality as the Brimstone trilogy?”

The short answer to this question is: Absolutely!

It is yet another unputdownable page-turner from the dynamic Preston/Child duo – that seems to continue to write mega-hits together. In my opinion, they are much better together than when they write solo.

If you listen to this book while commuting to work, please be advised that you will find yourself sitting in the parking lot to hear “just one more chapter” after you have arrived.

This is how a thriller should be.

Your second question might be: “What were they thinking, when they decided NOT to use Scott Brick as the narrator?” In that case, I have more good news: Rene Auberjonois does a tremendous job.

I hope you will enjoy this audio book as much as I did.

- Henrik "I'm an audiobook nerd living in Copenhagen, Denmark. At the time of writing, I'm approaching 400 audiobooks."


This book takes all of the overused words and phrases that critics use to describe great books and breathes new life and meaning into them: awesome, page-turner, action-packed, unique,imaginative, mind-blowing, couldn't put it down, two-thumbs up, not-to-be-missed. . .well, you get the idea. In short, this book is fantastic!!! So is the narrator! Over the years, Lincoln Child and Douglas Preston have consistently enthralled me with their great stories--this one though, I think, is their best. After finishing this book, I realized that I now consider these two to be my all-time favorite writers--topping my other perennial favorite authors such as Clive Cussler, Issac Asimov, David Baldacci, Jeffery Deaver, James Patterson, and John Ludlum, to name a few. DON'T MISS LISTENING TO THIS AUDIBLE BOOK!
