The World Beneath by Rebecca Cantrell

Award-winning and New York Times bestselling author Rebecca Cantrell drops you into a vast, dark world: 100 miles of living, breathing, tunnels that is the New York City underground. This subterranean labyrinth inhales three million bustling commuters every day. And every day, it breathes them all out again... except for one. Software millionaire Joe Tesla is set to ring the bell on Wall Street the morning his company goes public. On what should be the brightest day in his life, he is instead struck with severe agoraphobia. The sudden dread of the outside is so debilitating, he can't leave his hotel at Grand Central Terminal, except to go underground. Bad luck for Joe, because in the tunnels lurk corpses and murderers, an underground Victorian mansion and a mysterious bricked-up 1940s presidential train car. Joe and his service dog, Edison, find themselves pursued by villains and police alike, their only salvation now is to unearth the mystery that started it all, a deadly, contagious madness on the brink of escaping The World Beneath.

Hey! Here's my review.

Fast paced techno thriller with fantastic narration.

I love a computer nerd hero. And a good conspiracy. And a bit of action. And a gruesome death...or two. And getting inside the mind of the bad guy. Or is the other guy the bad guy? Or what about the girl? Who's side is she on anyway? 

The World Beneath kept me guessing. I was engaged in the story the whole way through and was really happy with the way it wrapped everything up....until that last sentence that left me on a cliffhanger! Looking forward to the next installment. 

I listened to the audiobook, which I received free via Audiobook Blast in exchange for an honest review. Jeffrey Kafer gives another fantastic performance. He is easy to listen to and speaks at a good pace.
