This fourth book seemed to not be as well proof-read. There were quite a number of times that I had to read a passage more than once to fully understand the point of the sentence. There were a lot of "a"s or "the"s missing as well as missing suffixes. Did not terribly retract from the story but I didn't remember that issue with the first three. However, I intend to continue to follow Sam in his future adventures.
I liked the technical details, as they add a lot of texture to the proceedings. The novel has about 100 chapters, which flow by fairly quickly. The narrative has a fast pace to it, and the novel is a bit of a page-turner.
I didn't read the first 3 books in the series, and it's not really necessary to enjoy this one. If I have one CON comment, it would be that the technical / thriller aspects of the novel eventually into more into the realm of science fiction as the novel progresses. I believe the first 3 books are similar, too. That's too bad, because the novel started out as a gripping, real-world story.
The journey is very treacherous but the truth emerges in a very strange way. Nanobots that have evolved into thinking beings, and they're on a quest to increase numerically. Sam discovers this and it's a race against time to destroy them.
Sam Reilly, Book 4
By: Christopher Cartwright
Narrated by: David Gilmore
This is an audible book I requested and the review is voluntary. I loved this book best so far in the series! Although it has sci-fi which I love, I had to stretch my imagination a bit but it was still good. That is what books are for anyway, to escape. I loved the premise of the story which I am not telling or it will spoil everything. Once you read it you will see why. Rogue waves are fascinating and horrifying at the same time, I guess that is what really draws me to this also.
The narrator is great for the Sam Reilly novels, a slightly gruff voice that you would expect a manly man to be, lol. He surprises me when he is able to do the females so well.

So if you don't like the first, the 4th or 8th or whatever will not be for you.
I like them - episode 6 or something was free - -- but I'm now up-to-date and don't use amazon free books if I want to pay the author.
It's good stuff - only half a dozen authors I revisit so much and they include Charles Dickens and Stephen King, Clancy and Piperbrook.
Mixed but choose the good.
This is good.
Only my opinion - all literature is only on the reader's opinion - no matter what critics tell you...
Rogue Wave continues the trend in a similar way but, as usual, a weird and tangiential way.
I read 6 first because it was free - read one and then on - helps a little but not much - they are pretty time independant.
Everyone is gorgeous, everyone is best in the world at whatever. Biggest in the world, one of the richest in the world, cleverest in the world, best computer specialist in the world, access to the best equipment in the world immediately at hand, best shipwreck specialist in the game, best diver in the world, best scientists in the world, most accomplished (insert name) in the world, yadda yadda yadda. That was even less believable than a killer nanobot/plankton rogue wave intercepting emails and attacking people.
(tbh I started reading the "IN THE WORLDDDD" type comments in the voice of Jeremy Clarkson. Some say I'm still reading in that voice....to this day).
Editing. Editing was not the best in the worrrllllddd. Get an editor man. Or if you have one, fire them and get a better one.
Coupled with human desire to kill and corrupt each other for their own greedy ends. Can anything pure ever exist in our society anymore... Even a baby is no longer pure for long it seems these days. Can anything be trusted at face value anymore?
Of course legend and treasurer are threaded through the story once again... The chase continues.
Having said that I did read the entire book so it can't be all bad can it? Give it a go, you might enjoy it.....unless spelling errors bug you.
Adventurous, unconventional yet with an integrity that saves the day, (& possibly the USA) against an unscrupulous politician and overcomes even rogue robots so that everyone can inhabit Utopia.
