Monday Mini ~ Overwatch by Marc Guggenheim

MondayMini3Getting back into the swing of things each week is hard. So is finding the quiet time to write a review over the weekend. In order to ease out of the weekend, I’ve decided to begin my blogging week with a mini review.

It’s not often that I pick up a political thriller, but I will go just about anywhere to spend time with my favorite narrators. It had been a while since I had the opportunity to listen to a Will Collyer audiobook. So, when I saw his name in connection with the audiobook version of Overwatch, I jumped at the chance to listen. Special thanks to Hachette Audio for the digital download for review.

Alex Garnett is a young lawyer who will do anything to get out from under his father and his huge shadow that seems to loom entirely over Washington, D.C. Although his father may be behind his new job as an attorney for the CIA, Alex intends to make a name for himself. When a rather routine assignment on a divorce case leads him into the unknown, Alex does what is necessary to get to the bottom of it, even if it costs him his fiance, his livelihood, and those who trust him.

When I listened to Will Collyer narrate Schroder and then The Unknowns I knew I loved what he could do with a book. He made political thrillers just as enjoyable. I enjoyed the personality Collyer gave to Alex and the more unsavory characters. His narration complemented the story and together they had me on the edge of my seat as the book came to an end.

Whether you regularly enjoy political thrillers or find them to be a great way to cleanse your pallet after a difficult read, Overwatch was great fun. I enjoyed the intrigue and the impact Alex’s job had on his relationship. There’s nothing like reading a book about a person who is in over his head before he knows it to make your own job feel like a piece of cake. If you’re looking for an escape, look no further.
