HURRICANE GOLD by Charlie Higson (unabridged) is presented by Blackstone Audio and comes with what is perhaps the best audiobook app available (see FEATURES, below).
“A series with a high I.Q.” (New York Times Book Review)
Ex–flying ace Jack Stone leaves his son and daughter in the company of young James Bond, but a gang of thieves lies in ambush. They want Stone’s precious safe and will kill for its contents. James embarks on a deadly chase through the Mexican jungle on the trail of greed and betrayal where only danger is guaranteed—survival is not.
Self-contained, this audiobook app is perfect for your commute, on a trip, or while relaxing. Based on a library-quality recording, this app was built especially for your iPhone and iPod Touch. No unreadable text, no endless scrolling on a tiny screen. The audio is of higher-than-normal quality, making for a great listening experience that will not tire your ears or grate on your nerves.
NOTICE: This app includes the exact same 5-star recording offered elsewhere at much higher prices. It was professionally recorded by Blackstone Audio’s Audie®-winning narrator Gerard Doyle. You are not buying yet another amateur or volunteer narration. No clicks, background noises, throat clearing, mispronunciations, tinny voices or monotones will be found here.
