Did the audiobook have a message or theme? The novel leads the listener to mistrust big corporation personalities, government policies and personal greed for power and financial gain.

What did you like or dislike? I liked the story – as realistic and passion-filled as would be desired in a mystery. I didn’t like the abridgement, but so be it. I also hated to come to the end.

Would you recommend?: Yes! A truly mysterious book with surprises, seemingly real aspects and flowing presentation.

Narrator’s style: Joe Montegna did a great job. He didn’t seem to be reading. The intrigue and emotions of the author’s written words were felt as if the narrator were actually the writer. I liked it very much!

How would you grade the book? B+
