    AN ARTFUL READING OF THIS JET SPEED ADVENTURE

    Twenty years is a long time to wait. It's an eternity when you're confined to a maximum security prison, incarcerated for a crime you didn't commit. That's the dark hole Raymond White finds himself in, and he doesn't know whether he'll ever be able to climb out. White tumbled from the top. He was one of the best, a young lawyer with a high powered firm, a gorgeous girl, and an almost sure road to Congress. Then, he's framed for murder. Once convicted and jailed he has lots of time to figure out who framed him and why. But, there's not much he can do about it when he's held in solitary confinement. Or, is there? He finds a mentor and friend in Lester Cole who's serving life. Together they plan an escape through underground sewers with the promise of a billion dollars they can split once they're on the outside. Cole doesn't get to see freedom, but White does and the actions zooms from there as he follows Cole's advice and exacts revenge. Broadway and film actor Stephen Lang gives an artful performance in this story of a wronged man who's going to make things right - his way. Lang perfectly captures both despair and daring as listeners follow this jet speed adventure. - Gail Cooke

    Not impressed

    I was told I would not be able to put this book down... I put it down a lot. I found the entire book to be quite slow with no climax. It was not a book that I needed to keep reading to find out what happens next (which usually murder mystery/thriller books are) very disappointed.

    Exact Revenge

    First of all, I did not finish this book. No matter how hard I tried, I could not force myself to read all of this terrible terrible book. I'm a huge Count of Monte Cristo fan. I'm not a purist and have enjoyed quite a few re-interpretations. This one is just awful. I realize that in this day and age, the original Count of Monte Cristo may seem full of quirky melodrama and ridiculous characters, but it is important to remember that at the time it was written all of it was new and original. Exact Revenge is full of characters that are so sickeningly stereotypical that I found myself laughing. The worst part of the book is easily the writing style. I felt like I was reading a seventh grader's short story.

    Outstanding!

    I listened to the book on CDs and really enjoyed it. Like another reviewer said, it is really the Count of Monte Christo for modern day readers, but this is what I liked about it. This book really kept me listening, not wanting to stop until the very end. Very good!

    The Count Rewritten

    The book jacket should tell readers that this is a rewrite of 'The Count of Monte Cristo' in current times. I was not enthralled.

    A non-stop, action packed, heart pounding book

    Just finished with 'Exact Revenge'. Have read his other works and this is his finest work todate. I could not put this book down. Brilliant plot, well devloped characters. A must have for Tim Green fans.
