    Story

    Mark Greaney wrote a fast paced action packed story. Court Gentry seemed to go from one impossible to escape situation to another. It was exciting to listen to how he got out of each situation. Greaney description of modern day Mexico may be very accurate from other books I have read. Mexico appears to be reaping the harvest of centuries of corruption. The Gray mans travels through Latin America, Central America and Mexico was like an exciting travel guide. Jay Snyder did a good job reading the story. This book makes an nail biting escape from today's problems, story good for a boring commute.

    Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest.

His friend is dead and buried. Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted.

    Story

    This book is packed with suspense and action including sea, land and air battles. The major part of the book is based on cyber warfare. Even though this is fiction it should act as a warning of what could happen. Lou Diamond Phillips did a great job narrating this story. Jack Ryan Sr is back as President and Jack Jr is off chasing the cyber spy "center". His girlfriend is spying on him for the FBI. War heats up in the South China Sea as China tries to increase it's territory. Great air battles--felt like I was in the plane with the pilot. Clancy sure can write a good suspense military story. Looking forward to his next one.

    Jack Ryan has only just moved back into the Oval Office when he is faced with a new international threat. An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang. They have declared the South China Sea a protectorate and are planning an invasion of Taiwan. The Ryan administration is determined to thwart China’s ambitions, but the stakes are dangerously high as a new breed of powerful Chinese anti-ship missiles endanger the US Navy's plans to protect the island.

    Overall

    Lou Diamond Phillips did a super job narrating this story. I had read or listen to all of Tom Clancy's books. Glad to see him writing again I had almost given up hope for any new books from him. The only negative part of the book was the pushing of right wing politics. I would prefer sticking to the story and leave out the politics. I do like the pro military story he tell and all the military detail is great as well as his in-depth story of analysis techniques of the CIA and related agencies. Hope the next book comes along soon.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

  • Forced to Kill

    "WORTHY FOLLOW-UP TO "FIRST TO KILL""

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you consider the audio edition of Forced to Kill to be better than the print version?

    I don't know why Audible keeps using this question it it's Guided Review format. It assumes that LISTENERS are also READERS. Although there may be people who enjoy both formats, I am not one of them. I've read 5 books a week since age 6 and was very happy when audiobooks came out. I was able to continue indulging in my passion for books via the audio medium.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    As before, I like the main character, Nathan McBride for his calm demeanor under pressure and his frailties as a man after the horrendous capture and torture he endured years ago.


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    I am a big Dick Hill fan and I usually give him an automatic 4-5 stars, no matter how crappy the book is. However, I was a bit disappointed in his performance here. All of the characters - except the non-American Latino men - sound alike or so similar that it's difficult to distinguish them. Especially since the author or the producer of the recorded version doesn't use "He said" or "said Nathan" in long dialogue portions which is something that I've always found to be distracting from narrators who are able to make each character have his or her own sound. Here, Mr. Hill is very lackadaisical in his performance. Characters sound different from one scene to another and even change in the middle of a sentence. And the females are just awful. FBI Special Agent In Charge Holly Simpson sounds like she just sucked on a helium balloon as does her subordinate agent Mary Grangeland. Plus the two women sound exactly the same. They are depicted as competent, brave, good looking and sexy, yet Dick Hill has them sounding as if they look and sound like Daffy Duck!


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It's not that kind of book. While the torture sessions are very disturbing, I knew what to expect in choosing this genre. My only reaction was a wish for a "do over" in my life so I could be a rogue ex-CIA Special Ops sniper assassin like Court Gentry in Mark Greaney's "The Gray Man" audiobook series.


    Any additional comments?

    If you like this kind of book, definitely check out Mark Greaney's "The Gray Man" audiobooks. In his covert assignments assassin Court Gentry does more than this book's Nathan McBride and his partner Harvey Fontana put together.

  • First to Kill

    "GOOD BOOK - GREAT NARRATOR"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    If you could sum up First to Kill in three words, what would they be?

    "A THRILLING RIDE"


    What other book might you compare First to Kill to and why?

    Since I'm new to this genre, I'd have to compare it to "The Gray Man", the first in a 4 book series written by Mark Greaney and narrated by Jay Snyder. Both books are a really good introduction to the espionage Special Ops mystery thriller genre. The main characters are personable and intelligent with a dry wit. The narrators in both are an outstanding pairing, responsible for a 50% share of my admiration.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Always have to go with "star of the show", in this case Nathan McBride. Dick Hill is one of favorite narrators.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, but sharing it here would be a spoiler.


    Any additional comments?

    I'm a big fan of the Nathan McBride thrillers now. I plan on getting the other 2 books in this series as soon as I finish writing this review! 😄👍

  • Ballistic: A Gray Man Novel

    "ASSASSIN COURT GENTRY IS STILL THE ONLY PULL HERE"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    I don't like the story taking place in Mexico. There's nothing "exotic" about that poor dusty place. Certainly not an interesting venue for an espionage-type book even if Court's Black Ops assignment involves mass political corruption, murder and kidnapping of tourists, and drug manufacture and distribution on a scale that makes the Cali and Medillin cartels look like American inner-city "corner boys". I just don't care for Mexico, under any circumstances. I could literally "smell" urine and Pine-Sol and see the large haunting eyes of Mexican children begging or selling "Chik-Lits" throughout the book. Ewwww! 😟. Plus there was not even the level of high tech equipment or armaments that I've come to expect from "The Gray Man" series. How can Court fashion an escape plan from tortillas and espadrilles?!


    If you’ve listened to books by Mark Greaney before, how does this one compare?

    Of the four books in the series, this is my second least favorite, right above "On Target". Again here, as in "On Target", Court gets side-tracked with useless women who add nothing to the story line as the one female did in "Dead Eye". To me, assassins don't need the drama that goes along with "quasi" love/sex affairs. Court loses his focus around women. If he'd just "tumble" with the girl and get it over with, that would be OK. But all he does is obsess on whether she likes him or he likes her, then mentally slaps himself for getting weak, but switches to beating himself up because he's not "trained" in the art of seduction or making love! Seriously, Court? James Bond "got the job done" and still handled his spy biz! I'm a woman but I don't like unnecessary love interests when I'm reading a book about a master assassin wanted by the CIA - his former employer - plus a half dozen other foreign assassin units. Anyone with a "Shoot On Sight" ticket on his head needs to keep his "big head" in charge at all times. I'll get my love and sex from Regency romance stories!!!


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    Jay Snyder is the best match for these books. I love the droll unexcited delivery he uses when portraying Court.


    Was Ballistic worth the listening time?

    Yes, but only because I love this series so much and because there's only 4 books in it. I'm "addicted" to The Gray Man so I'll gladly take what's available, even if it's substandard. If there were, say, 10 books in this series, I probably would have listened closer to the other less-than-satisfied reviewers. I was just hoping against hope that those reviewers were wrong. They were not....


    Any additional comments?

    Start with "The Gray Man", the first in the series. After reading it, I fell in love with a genre that I would never have chosen.

  • On Target: A Gray Man Novel

    "NOT THE BEST IN THE SERIES"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story
    Would you try another book from Mark Greaney and/or Jay Snyder?

    Yes.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    Court Gentry is his usual "Bad To The Bone" self but he seemed to lose steam in this installment of "The Gray Man" series. As a result, I found nothing which I could characterize as an "interesting aspect". But the "least interesting" one was the female "love interest" who was temporarily introduced into the storyline. Her addition made no sense at all. There was no emotional or physical interaction at all between the woman and Court. Then she was eased out and never heard from again. I found it all to be very disconcerting. I don't care for mushiness with my assassins!


    Have you listened to any of Jay Snyder’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Yes. I listened to the other three of "The a Gray Man" books prior to this one. Mr. Snyder gave a masterful performance in all four.


    Do you think On Target needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    The beauty of the books in this 4-book series is that they can each stand alone or be enjoyed as a set. The follow-up to this book is already available. It is called "Dead Eye" and it is much better than this one. I gave "Dead Eye" 5 stars.


    Any additional comments?

    "On Target" is my least favorite of the 4 books. It was all over the place with unnecessary and/or unexplained additions like women and drugs thrown into Court Gentry's life. The love/sex angle was never fully developed and only made Court make stupid moves and poor decisions - very uncharacteristic for him. The drug use was valid since Court was a chronic pain sufferer as anyone would be from jumping out of planes, helicopters and yachts, being shot, stabbed, beat, electro-shocked, and tortured within an inch of his life EVERY DAY! However, for some strange reason, the author once again fails to fully develop the prescription pain medication use. Court Gentry doesn't really abuse the pain pills although he does obsess over them when he's denied the drugs either by voluntary detox or unavailability. One reviewer complained that he or she was appalled by the graphic language and "drug abuse" . Hey, this is not Dr. Seuss! The book is not called "The Grinch Who Stole Christmas" - more like "The Grinch Who Stole An AK-47 And Killed Every Who In Whoville While Looking For a His Baby Mama Who Ran Off With The Cat In The Hat"! Court Gentry is a top rogue ex-CIA assassin who kills 100 other assassins every week. What is he supposed to say when he reduces an attackers head to "a fine red mist": "Oh! Golly gee! Sorry there, guy."? Or takes a bullet in his leg while neutralizing 7 assassins armed with "Shoot On Sight" orders for The Gray Man: "Darn it! I've been hit and it hurts like heck!"? I DON'T THINK SO!!! I like my assassins with a little "thug life" in them! What did that reviewer expect in a book full of killers and guns? A Bible story? Get real!

  • "Rosenberg does it again - couldn't ..."

    43 of 48 helpful votes

    I've listened to all of Rosenberg's political fiction and have enjoyed every book. If you haven't listened toThe Twelfth Imam, I recommend that you get it first as this one is a sequel, continuing the adventures of CIA asset David Shirazi. Shirazi, born in the US to Iranian parents who fled the revolution, infliltrates Iran at the highest levels and uncovers a terrible plot which he works hard to subvert. The Twelfth Imam, or Madi (sp.) has formed a caliphate consisting of most middle eastern countries. While posing as a religious figure, it's obvious he has nothing but evil on his mind, including the destruction of Israel and western society. This book, like other Rosenberg thrillers will hold your attention and make it difficult to get any sleep as you won't want to stop listening....The narrator was very good, using different accents and handling male and female voices equally well. Get it now!

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.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States.

An aborted coup in the People's Republic of China has left President Wei Zhen Lin with no choice but to agree with the expansionist policies of General Su Ke Quiang.
