From having nothing to live for, Jon suddenly finds himself the protector of someone with everything to live for, someone desperate to uncover the conspiracy that has ruined her life. Staying two steps ahead of the police, and barely one step ahead of the powerful organization that wants Jess dead, Jon discovers that Jess is harboring a secret of her own, a strange inner "voice" providing cryptic clues for them to follow.
Part political thriller and part chase novel, Wisdom Spring takes listeners on a fast-paced, suspenseful ride along the highways of the US and Canada, into the far reaches of the Alaskan wilderness. Along the way, the two unlikely heroes transition from helpless prey into proficient hunters as the mysterious clues eventually lead them to a violent final confrontation with corrupt forces at the highest levels of government.

Jon is a man on a mission. His mission being that he reaches his brothers remote house and live life simply for a while, but when he picks up a hitch hiker named Jessica, his life changes forever. He is thrown into a conspiracy so high up the ladder that both his and Jessica's life is in danger at every turn. Who can you trust when everyone seems out to get you?
Plot wise, this was a fast paced and interesting read. The author wrote it well and had plenty of twists and turns that kept my attention throughout. Wisdom Springs itself was a unique and intriguing place and it would be nice to get a little novella about it!!!
Character wise, I liked Jon. He is guilt ridden because he accidentally caused the death of his daughter by giving her an unapproved drug for her Cancer. She died as a result and Jon couldn't get his life back on track. He left his wife and job and went on the road. There he makes the decision to go to his brothers for a while but his life is about to get harder!!
Jessica was intriguing. She found out something that got her 4 colleagues killed, which by sheer luck she escaped. Now she is on the run, and with the help of a "voice" and Jon, she needs to get to the bottom of it before she is killed. Jessica was brave, capable and easy to like. I was rooting for her and Jon throughout.
In all, this was a fast paced read. It had plenty of action, lies and double crosses that kept me on the edge of my seat.
This is the second book I've listened to by Greg Hernandez, and like the first, he is clear and concise and easy to listen to. I just found he lacked enthusiasm in the reading. I wanted him to get into the story a little more and preform it, not just read it. I'm hoping that with experience he will become a great narrator.
I was voluntarily provided this free copy by the author, narrator, or publisher. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.

This is the first book I've listened to by this author. This one features both male and female protagonists that are running from their past. They meet up and the suspense begins. Throw in a wacky government conspiracy a bit of romance and lots of action. This was a good listen.
The narration was well done.The characters were well portrayed, by Greg Hernandez.
