Summary

The Insurmountable Edge (book one) is an on-point action thriller with a wisecracking antihero that will win over fans of Tom Clancy, Jeffrey Deaver and Robert Ludlum.” (Rob Errera, IndieReader.com)

Two children savagely stoned to death in the California desert. Top employees of a US defense contractor dying at an alarming rate. A cryptic message sent by a strange, secretive source warns the contractor’s products have been corrupted and could be used against the US Armed Forces.

They all seem to be connected. But how?

Only two men on earth are capable of putting it all together; those men are Jack Wilder and Jeff Bradshaw, two of the greatest special-operations forces soldiers who have ever lived.

There’s a problem though. Jack and Jeff are off-duty at Jack’s ranch while Jeff tries to recover from a severe case of post-traumatic stress disorder. Jack’s 17-year-old ward, a hellcat named Adelaide, is also on the ranch. Nothing seems more impossible than getting the three of them to leave their safe commune. But then, a mysterious blue Maybach shows up at the ranch. The Maybach’s visit sends Adelaide, Jack and Jeff off on a dangerous trail of murder and intrigue as they confront The Insurmountable Edge.

nowhere near Tom Clancy

the book is nowhere near Clancy's books, had to force myself to finish it. author should stop "he/she said" all over the text which tries hard on one's patience. The main character is very predictable and too much dreaming and too weak to be a hero, story is predictable. even Scott Brick's narration cannot save the book, very boring.

This Novel Has Many Great Features

Brick captures the tone of the main character impeccably and Goodfellow creates a relatable protagonist that you willfully admire.

Humorous but needs a thesaurus for the verb "said"

I loved the humor. However, PLEASE investigate synonyms for the word "said". I frequently had to rewind to listen to what I had missed from being distracted by hearing the word SAID so frequently. Really!

Awful

Goodfellow butchers a reasonably interesting plot with idiotic dialogue that insults even those looking for mindless diversion. Three books? Really. Not worth the credits or the money. If Audible offered refunds I’d be requesting one.

Choppy distracting narration

The constant “then she said” bla bla bla. “To which he said” bla bla bla. Literally telling you who is saying what after every sentence. Very strange way to narrate and distracted/irritated me so I couldn’t enjoy the story. I would have retuned this one if Audible would let me.

Good book. a few issues

Ages and misidentification of the children. I mean, two sets of kids by two different wives... there ages were not close enough to be believable to me. also, a super soldier that is always hallucinating, well we'll see in the next book.
and every woman is the most beautiful ever. whatever.

Edged Out

So not only is this story broken into two books that I did not pick up on. That will be two credits to find out what the punch line is. On top of all that did not like the writing because it was winded and drawn out. Now that I find out it is in two books it makes sense why it was boarding. Elongated descriptions = two books. Now I need to determine if I care enough to spend another credit to be board further. Nah moving on. Author lost my follow. Scott Brick always good even in a bad book.

Good story

It is a good story with one of the best narrators Scott Brick. My only issue was how often the speakers were identified. Many times I knew who the character talking was and didn’t need the person identified. I’m looking forward to the next book in the series
