Summary:

Exclusively at Amazon.
A Chinese satellite is on crash course with Earth.
It contains enough plutonium to irradiate a large city.
And that's the good news...

In the tradition of Tom Clancy, Michael Crichton, and Robert Ludlum, comes a new hero.

Michael Chase is a twenty-six year old backpacker, a recent college grad, an amateur. He flew to Hong Kong to find his missing father. Four hours later, he's running for his life. The Chinese Secret Police want him dead. The Conspiracy wants him dead. And the one person who he thinks is on his side, may want him dead too. If Michael is going to live, he'll need to find a hidden piece of Nazi technology lost since World War II. And he'll have to do it before anyone else. Because if he doesn't, a little plutonium is going to be the least of his problems.

When I was first approached to do the tour for this audiobook I was more than a little hesitant. I'm not a huge fan of audios unless I've already read the book because my mind wanders and I tend to tune the story out but since I usually only listen to ones I've read before I don't mind that so much. With this one I listened to the audio without having read the book and I'm really glad that in the end I came around and signed up for the tour.

Back before I was a blogger I was a huge fan of books like Lethal Circuit, but I find that since I started blogging my love for the genre has been pushed to the side a bit so it was really good to be able to get back into it with this audio. As I mentioned, I was nervous about the tour but in the end I really didn't need to be since it turned out quite well.

I enjoyed listening to the audio version of Lethal Circuit a lot. I think the narrator Ben Sullivan did a stand up job reading the book and he really made the characters come alive and I thought the way that that he would build up the suspense for the book by using different tones was fantastic. As for the author, I think Lars wrote a great thriller and I was able to get invested with the characters he created and I thought Michael was just awesome.

The plot of the novel was well written (and read). I thought that Michael was a wonderful son to go all the way to China to find his father even though he ended up going through hell and back as well as uncovering some secrets. There was lots of times during the reading that I would have to stop what I was doing just to listen closer because the tension would build and I couldn't wait to find out what was about to go on next.

Overall, I thought that the audiobook was well read. I didn't tune out nearly as much as I thought I might and all I did during those few times when my mind did wander I just went back and listened to what I missed. This is definitely a book I'll be listening to again as well as reading and it is a series I will absolutely be following from here on in.

I would recommend Lethal Circuit to fans who enjoy thrillers, heart pounding adventure with high stakes and a well rounded cast of characters to match a superb plot. The narrator was fantastic and made the story come alive so I'd recommend this one to all audiobook lovers out there who want something that will hold their attention.

  1. I had never heard of it before, so I'm glad you shared it. I read in a wide sweep of genres, and the thing I have trouble with on my blog is being an eclectic reader, because it is hard to find a niche audience for that. But I do like suspense thrillers and this sounds like fun. Thanks.

    1. I know what you mean Rita, I'm an eclectic reader as well and I notice my posts that aren't YA or Romance or Historical Fiction just don't get as much attention as the others do. I hope you get a chance to read or listen to this one soon :)

  3. I'm so glad you liked it!!! I don't read this genre at all usually but I do know what you mean about changing a lot when you start blogging. I had read mostly adult paranormal and stuff and then I started blogging and it turned into mostly YA. It's nice to change things up a bit!
    I use to only listen to audios of books I had already read because I accidentally tune them out too. But lately (this year) I have found that I pay closer attention then I thought. I have a lot of interruptions with my kids, so I have to turn it off a lot, but I really enjoy them.
    Thanks so much for reviewing this one for the tour!
