What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?
Actually I purchased this book because of Scott Brick. He is one of my two absolute favorite narrators. I have never heard of Jack DuBrul and bought this solely based on the narrator. Glad I did! Thanks Scott and Thank You Jack DuBrul for some Excellent writing.
Any additional comments?
As I said I have never heard if Jack DuBrul but the synopsis given sounded like it could be interesting. WOW! Was this ever. The story starts off with Amelia Earhart being given a box containing crystals and asked to deliver since she was making a flight and this would be the most expedient way to get them to their destination. Only problem is these crystals give off a magnetic charge that interfere with her navigational equipment. Now you know what happened to her. Mix into this a billionaire who is going bankrupt who somehow finds out about the crystals and being the owner of a green energy company, when people have decided going green is not as urgent as they thought it was, a beautiful young female victim (?), a mad scientist who has figured out how to artificially change the climate using these same crystals and casualties are not an issue.
Now our hero TADA Philip Mercer goes to see his friend/mentor, geologist college professor who has discovered a partial secret and just as Mercer arrives his friend is murdered... And the chase is on.
Well written, coherent, EXCELLENT and HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

What did you love best about The Lightning Stones?
I missed Mercer while Jack du Brul was off working with Clive Cussler. I hope that we get more ... This is an extremely fast-paced intense book with lots of subplots that takes you all over the country and the world, and brings back beloved Harry and Drag and some other favorite secondary characters as well. There was one place in the book that went beyond debate on environmental issues and devolved into preaching, but that part was short. If this had been a movie, the producers would have complained about the cost of all the special effects needed to repeatedly save Mercer. Ingenious solutions though to the dangerous challenges Mercer faces - you'll like them!

Hopefully it won't take 9 years to the next one. Excellent story, Jack Du Brul delivers once again.

I simply couldn't put it down. Scott Brick was great and brought the characters to life with his portrayal of their many accents. Looking over Du Brul's many stories now...ready for another adventure.
