All other Nelson DeMille books are available on unabridged audio books/CD's. The only exception from the rule is "Spencerville" which is only available in an abridged version.
Why is my favorite DeMille book still not out unabridged on audio book/CD's???

I normally give DeMille books 5+ stars - and this book is good, but not great, and different. So, the difference is likely me and not anything wrong with DeMille. The cadence, tone and feel of this book is different, almost as if DeMille didn't write it. Or, DeMille needed to pound out a novel and this is the result. The characters are a little flat and somewhat not credible. The protagonist is a cross between Jack Reacher and Gabriel Allon - but without the brawn of Reacher or the smarts of Allon. The antagonist is one dimensional; an ogre without the ability to think more than one day into the future. The love interest is suicidal and irrational. The story is predictable with no twists or surprises. Much of the dialog is irrelevant at worst and simple at best. Every other DeMille book I have read has been awesome. This one fell short. Its a good story, but not DeMille's usually masterful crafting of a riveting tale. Will I read more DeMille? You bet! Do I give him a pass on this? Sure.

There is something in this book which keeps the reader attracted. Maybe it the very rural, disappearing farm way of life. Maybe the protagonist's return 25 years later to find his old love, now unhappily married. Possibly, the return to boyhood roots, or DeMille's writing style. It's entirely enjoyable in these veins.

However, the plot and ending are very predictable. There are no twists in the novel. The main characters are one dimensional, to the point the secondary characters have as much, if not more substance.
Much of the book is given to dialogue of "I love you." "No, I love you more, ad infinitum. This type writing goes on for pages. It's akin to two mid-forties people in puppy love, a state you would find a sixteen year old. Though part of the author's dialogue, this seems as if its filler. There's just so much of it. The book actually could have been shortened from its 520 pages.
The last third of the book is where most of the action can be found, though it's mostly all predictable.

Written quite some years ago maybe a reason it's certainly not one of DeMille's best, though DeMille's tongue in cheek humor can be found throughout. I'll go with four stars since, honestly, somehow it kept my interest. All in all, its just a story of a love triangle.

There are those rare books that you just LIKE. They strike a personal chord. They tell a story that makes you start thinking about some of the "What if's" in your own life. And you are richer for that journey.

This is one of those books.

If you've never experienced unrequited love or never had a really good relationship or have trouble relating to things you can't see or touch, you might not like this book.

But if you still think there is magic and good people in the world and hold on to the possibility that this life you are having is a good one---or if you're in a rough patch, that things could really get better--do yourself a favor and meet the people in this book. Maybe you'd be as glad as I was.

I know that review #3,032 or whatever this is, likely won't get read by too many people (maybe by no one) But in keeping with the wonderful spirit of this book, I'm writing this anyway. Because I enjoyed the book that much. And when something like that happens, sometimes you just gotta tell the world.

This book is addictive. I couldn't put it down and my nights were short while I was reading it The only thing that stopped me at night was my eyes no longer able to focus well. His books never fail to entertain. Am running out of books of his to read.

I really like Nelson DeMille novels, as a rule. I had a hard time believing he actually wrote this book. Not up to snuff. Do not recommend.

DeMille does his work and research. Always a thriller and addictive read. I have enjoyed all of his books. I look forward to his next adventure.
Wonderful. I have never disliked a book by DeMille. He is a master and keeps your attention from the cover to the end. Keep up the great work. Love this guy.
