What is the threat that connects them all? And just who is the mysterious mastermind, The Starling? From Mexico to Washington - from London to Marseille to Prague - war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his team of Volunteers risk their lives to follow the trail of clues. But how can they stop The Starling - when he always seems one step ahead?
With more than 80 speaking roles and state-of-the-art sound and music design, The Starling Project is an immersive listening experience written by a master of the thriller

The Starling Project's production values are incredible. I listened with headphones and was immediately transported to a mind-movie. There are also so many twists and turns, it definitely warrants a second, if not third, listen.
The storyline is quite good, with a dynamite opening and a number of false trails that keep you guessing and scratching your head. It maddeningly ends without the villain being caught (not a spoiler), inviting the hope of a sequel.
I listen to a lot of audio drama, mainly British (Perfectly Normal, Crazy Dog, BBC) because Americans seem to have lost the ability to create in this medium. But this production has canceled those doubts, and I look forward to more Audible Dramas!
I think multi characteristic books with many different speakers, sound effects and music ruins audiobooks. The purpose of an audiobook is to hear a story written by an author and told by one, maybe two different narrators, not a scripted audio play. Not for me, anyway.
Pathetic. Save Your Money
An egregious disappoint and a sad comment about Jeffery Deaver craftsmanship as an author. I purchased the audio book and found the narrative unintelligible. Audio direction on the cheap and devoid of any artistic content. Please, someone tell Deaver the wreckage this audio book has done to his talent.
