Listener Opinions

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Russell Day | 2/14/2014

    " This is a fantastic book. The characters are engrossing, the pace is very quick, and the conclusion keeps you guessing. You really get into this book. I highly recommened it to any and all readers who love a good thriller. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 JC | 2/7/2014

    " This is a fast paced thriller/mystery that I was quite impressed with. The book starts out a little slower than the second half of the book, but it is still pretty engaging throughout. The book follows Hauck, a local businessman that use to be a cop, as he follows a string of deaths in the financial industry in what leads to a conspiracy against the United States. The book was about the right length and a fun read. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 cindi | 2/5/2014

    " too slow moving. i quit 1/2 way through. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Sarahb. | 2/2/2014

    " Great book--very suspenseful, lots of financial market info, but still easy to follow. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Lynn | 1/29/2014

    " This third book in the Hauck series really kept me turning the pages, and Andrew Gross seems to have finally gotten a competent proof reader as well. It was a great story, although a bit far-fetched. Hauck is once again chasing the bad guys, and with the government's blessing, although he has retired from the police force. The premise is a bit far-fetched, and what is deemed to be ironclad evidence sometimes seems like it would be thrown out of court as circumstantial in the real world, but it was entertaining. As usual, Hauck narrowly escapes death several times throughout the book. I'm starting to think that Andrew Gross is modeling Ty Hauck after James Patterson's Alex Cross, with a new love interest introduced in each book. Although Andrew Gross is no James Patterson, his books keep me interested and turning the pages, so he succeeds as far as I'm concerned. I'm looking forward to reading his 4th book in the series. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Wendy | 1/12/2014

    " I am partial to everything Andrew Gross writes. He knows how to keep you on the edge of your seat and he knows the lay of the land no matter where his characters go. I loved his tie ins with the current state of investment houses and banks in the world. Very current and intelligent. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Phillis | 1/11/2014

    " Andrew Gross weave a very fine story. This storyline can be plucked right out of today's headlines. Power, corruption and the possiblity of taking down a country's economics by a few people is so real that maybe, just maybe this is really happening. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Shayne Muller | 12/4/2013

    " Loved this book. Written like the original great Baldacci or Patterson books were. Couldn't wait to read every page. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jenny | 11/19/2013

    " This was my first mystery type novel that I have read and while I am glad that I read it so I now more open to this genre, I wasn't completely impressed. It wasn't one of those books where I couldn't wait to get home to read the next chapter. It was just ok. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Fred Newtz | 11/10/2013

    " Great book and a fast read. The suspense and his story telling kept me from putting it down.+ "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Aimee | 6/19/2013

    " this was my first A Gross book, but won't be my last. A page turner from the start, it made me put aside my book club selection until I finished 'Reckless'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Dan | 3/8/2013

    " Another good thriller with a quick pace from Gross. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kate Hart | 12/21/2012

    " A very engrossing read--ripped from our current front page news. Although I enjoyed the storyline, I found myself wishing we had a modern-day hero the likes of the fictious Ty Hauck, to clean up our current financial crisis. A book that gives "cause for pause". "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Sue | 9/30/2012

    " Very complicated to understand the USA Market jargon but a good book nevertheless "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Jackie | 5/23/2012

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Tricia | 3/14/2012

    " I liked this book. It is a clever take on the breakdown and semi-collapse of the US financial markets. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Michele Kersten-hart | 1/23/2012

    " I read Andrew Gross and James Patterson's books that they co-wrote but this is the second book I read by Andrew Gross as a solo author. I enjoyed it very much. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sarah | 6/19/2011

    " He is an excellent storyteller but, really, does every femme fatal and able and willing man to help her have to fall in love?! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Erin | 6/16/2011

    " It was okay. A tad predictable, but i like Ty Hauck and look forward to reading more about him. "

    " Got it for free on my Kindle to read on vacation. It's okay for a beach book that I paid nothing for. At least I managed to read the whole thing. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Kay | 4/26/2011
