Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende
Award-winning author Ann Voss Peterson wrote her first story at seven years old and hasn’t stopped since. To pursue her love of creative writing, she’s worked as a bartender, horse groomer, and window washer. Now known for her adrenaline-fueled thrillers and Harlequin Intrigue romances, Ann draws on her wide variety of life experiences to fill her fictional worlds with compelling energy and undeniable emotion. She lives near Madison, Wisconsin, with her family and their border collie.
J. A. Konrath broke into the writing scene with his cocktail-themed mystery series, including Whiskey Sour, Bloody Mary, and Rusty Nail—stories that combine uproarious humor with spine- tingling suspense. Since then, Konrath has gone on to become an award- winning and best-selling author known for thriller and horror novels. He is also a pioneer of self-publishing models and posts industry insights on his world-famous blog, A Newbie’s Guide to Publishing. He lives in Chicago with his family and three dogs.
Sehr enttäuschend und schade ums Geld
Habe nach 20 Seiten im Band 1 aufgehört zu lesen.
Dieses Buch somit gar nicht begonnen.

Bottom line: Despite my lowly gripe, I will line up and buy the next action thriller involving Chandler for sure.
I felt the choice of narrator could have been better. Angela Dawe's voice doesn't seem to have the range for reading a thriller. It's almost a monotone, albeit a loud one. Not much inflection, not much change in tone, very even. I've reviewed another book she read and her voice was a good choice for it (chick lit), but not for a thriller, IMO. It took me a long time to get past her voice and settle into the story without constantly thinking about her vocal delivery and wishing for a tone change, inflection, anything. I stuck with it, though, because I like Konrath's books.
The silky, cooing voice Angela Dawe used for Hammett was wonderful. That was when Angela's voice seemed to come alive.
Good book. I have already read the trilogy and look forward to the next release date.
Reading Level: Adult--explicit sex scene
Recommended for: Fans of high-octane thrillers
Trigger Warnings: violence, murder, sexual assault, statutory rape
My Thoughts: I read the first Jack Daniels book several years ago and really enjoyed it. I've been slowly building up my library of J.A. Konrath books ever since, and am a bit aggravated that I have to read this book before I completed it and was ready because of the new Terms of Service with Vine running me on Three, the third book in this series, but that's neither here nor there...
Say whatever else you will about this book, it was really entertaining. It is so fast-paced that the entire story takes place over the course of a single day, and it just never stops--other than that one sex scene, which was rather gratuitous and over which I skipped altogether, and which led to the rating decrease. I had no idea how accurate the weapons information is, how realistic the overall idea is, but I was entertained, and couldn't stop turning those pages, so for me, it was a success as a book. Recommended for adrenaline-junkies, fans of high-octane thrillers, fans of Konrath's writing, and fans of thrillers in general. Check it out.
Series Information: Flee is the first book in the Codename: Chandler series.
Exposed is a novella featuring Chandler, and may be read after Flee
Book 2: Spree, to be read next
Book 3: Three, upcoming
Disclosure: I purchased this book for myself so I could read the whole series after receiving the third book through Vine. All opinions are my own.
Synopsis: CODENAME: CHANDLER
She's an elite spy, working for an agency so secret only three people know it exists. Trained by the best of the best, she has honed her body, her instincts, and her intellect to become the perfect weapon.
Then her cover is explosively blown, and she becomes a walking bulls-eye. Stalked by assassins who want the secrets she holds, and those who'd prefer she die before talking.
Now Chandler has twenty-four hours to thwart a kidnapping, stop a psychopath, uncover the mystery of her past, retire five equally-trained contract killers, avoid a tenacious cop named Jack Daniels, and save the world from nuclear annihilation, all while dodging 10,000 bullets.
Buckle up. It's going to be one helluva ride.
