  • "Hallinan is a writer at the very pe..."

    Story

    This is the fifth novel in the Poke Rafferty series. Frankly, I didn't think he could top the Queen of Patpong, Wisely, he hasn't tried to do that. Queen was a love story to Rose, in addition to being many other things. Here, Rose and Miaow are exiled, almost to the point of disappearing. What Hallinan does do, however, is brilliant. Poke's half-sister, Ming Li, who had a vivid role in a prior book, is brought forward as a major character in this one. Hallinan writes women so well that, even though we miss Rose and Miaow almost viscerally, Ming Li is so compelling that she almost fills the void. The story is typical Hallinan Bangkok, with Poke running around like a chicken with his head cut off trying to stay alive. The CIA and the Phoenix Program from Viet Nam and the US Embassy and a villainous Major Shen and a horrendously dangerous mass murderer from Viet Nam, an American named Murphy, a flock of old spooks who desperately try to keep their old lifestyle alive: all these and more, much more. Poke's friend Arthit appears in a heart-breaking role, and we find ourselves still mourning the loss of Nui, his dead wife. Once again we get Bangkok in all its lurid splendor. Once again Victor Bevine does a marvelous job of bringing this masterful work of creativity to us lucky Audible listeners. I hope Tim Hallinan has a string of these in his remarkable mind, ready to write, because I could listen to his stuff for just about ever.

    An accidental collision on a Bangkok sidewalk goes very wrong when the man who ran into Rafferty dies in his arms, but not before saying three words: "Helen Eckersley. Cheyenne." Seconds later, the police arrive, denying that the man was shot. That night, Rafferty is interrogated by Thai secret agents who demand to know what the dead man said, but Rafferty can't remember. When he's finally released, Rafferty arrives home to find that his apartment has been ransacked. He realizes he's under surveillance.

  • The Spy: An Isaac Bell Adventure

    "Entertaining"

    Overall

    Isaac Bell and the Van Dorn agency is introduced into the worl of espionage. It has more surprises and unexpected happenings than I'm used to with Cussler. The characters are a bit predictible in their actions but it is still entertaining. The ending was a surprise. Scott Brick does an excellent job as narrator. Personally, I prefer his novels in our current times, but that is just my preference.

  • Extraordinary Powers

    "Disappointing"

    Overall

    This is an interesting story line and a bit different for an espionage novel. Unfortunately I think the narrator really ruined it, at least for me. The storyline was a bit choppy but well thought out. If you are debating using a credit for this or another, I would think twice about using it here.

    Story

    This was my first Brad Thor book and I loved it. It is a great fiction novel. That being said, it is scary that we could wake up tomorrow to a very similar situation. You don't have to be on the left or right to enjoy this one. Just enjoy the book and the narrator, they are both excellent!

  • The Book of Spies

    "Not a Covert One Novel equivalent"

    Overall

    It was entertaining and a good "Filler" book until my credits became available. It is worth the download but not anywhere near the best I've read lately.

  • "Major Action Novel"

    4 of 4 helpful votes

    I like action, especially on a long car trip, and this book delivers just as much as The Gray Man. Court Gentry is quite a character with lots of moving parts and superhero machismo. If you want lots of action, this will do nicely.

For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    A top-ranking Iranian military official is blown up while trying to defect to the West. An investigative journalist is arrested and imprisoned for writing an article critical of the Turkish government. An Iranian nuclear scientist is assassinated on the streets of Tehran. These three incidents, seemingly unrelated, have one crucial link. Each of the three had been recently recruited by Western intelligence, before being removed or killed.
