I enjoy counter-terrorism, westerns, historical fiction, detective mysteries, and old school comedy like "A Christmas Story".
The story was good. The technical military stuff e.g. "halo" jump, night ops, military hardware was great. The political stuff was very enjoyable. But the narration was often distracting. Dick Hill has a challenge when it is time to transition to the 4 female characters. It is so weak that it is just plain distracting from the story. His handling of female voices sounds "corny", contrived, almost comical. I liked Dick Hill in some past counter terrorism audio books but I guess they had no or few female characters. I loved the military, political, inter governmental agency politics and the overall theme of protecting our country even if extreme measures are sometimes needed. Dick needs to have a female SO stand in for him on the female parts.
Vince Flynn novel Executive Power excites and thrills again via the distinct and powerfully entertaining narration of George Guidall. I'm a top fan of the Mitch Rapp series! Loved it!
I loved the action which was almost nonstop. That means it kept me up past my bedtime a lot. Although I wish I could have had the will power to have not kept adding 30 min to my nightstand ihome player, resulting in lost sleep, I really enjoyed the relentless action in this thriller. I recommend highly.

I've liked all the books I've listened to by this author, but this might be the best one so far. Scott Brick did an excellent job of bringing out the slime that comprised the antagonist. I like my bad guys to be really bad, and Asad Khalil is about as slimy as they get. John Corey makes for a good character as does his wife. Boris was quite interesting too. But make no mistake about it, this book was titled The Lion for a reason. A riveting and satisfying ride.
