Then the mysterious Orchid makes an appearance. She’s got skills and I wasn’t sure Norton would last the entire book. Thankfully, Orchid doesn’t want him dead right away! I went back and forth about Orchid. She’s got this ‘disguise’ and her Evil Mistress name Orchid but then some minor character easily identifies her doing her regular day job. So, not much of a disguise there. She’s fun but turns up too conveniently or gets out of handcuffs too easily. That sort of thing had me roll my eyes a few times.
While the story is indeed fast-paced, I occasionally lost interest in the story. It’s one fight or chase scene or quickie in the office supplies closet after another. There are a few quieter moments, usually when Norton is thinking about his Mel. Those helped balance some of the fast-paced nature of this tale. I did enjoy the scifi techno thriller aspect to the murders even if I found it lacked any substantial detail. The story wasn’t here to show me how such a cyber crime could be possible, but, rather, used the idea as a gimmick to set the stage and occasionally push the plot forward.
The story initially gripped my attention, but then lost it, tried to snatch it back, failed, tried again, gained a bit of interest, and then held it because I knew the ending was nigh. All together, it was OK. 3.5/5 stars.
I received a free copy of this book.
The Narration: Rick Gregory had to pronounce the word ‘whilst’ far too many times in this story. I don’t know why the author used that word so often. Gregory did give it a second syllable nearly every time which I found to be a little jarring. Other than that, Gregory gave a good performance. He had distinct voices for all the characters and his female voices were believable. 4/5 stars.
I thoroughly enjoyed this!! The plot was fast paced and intense. Once the detective finds out about the program and what it does, it really picks up the pace. You can just imagine what that type of technology can do!! And no, I'm not telling you because it's better if you go into this blind. It's much more enjoyable, well it was for me anyway!
In all, this is a quick read, but it's a fast paced, thrilling and entertaining one. It would give you chills thinking about the program!!! If you enjoy techno-thrillers, then you're sure to enjoy this.
Rick Gregory read this really well. His cadences and tones brought the atmosphere to life and made this more enjoyable. While his voices for certain characters could do with a little more differentiation, they were still good enough that I could follow who was talking.
I was given this free audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review. This in no way affected nor influenced my thoughts.
