There are no surprises here, but the story was engaging, and the narrator suited the genre just fine. If you like murder mysteries with some espionage mixed in, then you'll enjoy this one.
I have read all of Brian Haig's fiction, generally getting them in hard cover, not wanting to wait for the paperback. Additionally, I rarely if ever re-read any book, but I have listened to a couple of Haig's book in audio format while running along the Mississippi River. I agree with the other listeners who have identified this reader as one of the worst. I would prefer to listen to computer-generated readings or listen to a touch-tone phone answering monologue. So, don't skip this last book by Brian Haig....simply get in paper.
I did not finish listening to this book because I started getting a tick just from listening the breathing of the narrator, it was totally distracting.
I really tried, I read a previous comment about the breathing, but unfortunately, I did not take heed.
Another excellent book from Brian Haig. Complex plot, lots of twists and turns. Some realistic and graphic descriptions of the war, and the politics behind the scenes. This book did tend to ramble occasionally with philosophical observations or introspections which interrupted the flow of the action. The author is very funny at times and I laughed out loud. I recommend this book.
I enjoyed Man in the Middle. While it was long and the plot at times was complex the book kept me listening and engaged. I also felt like the narrator was great. No issues here. Get this one. You won't be disappointed.
i enjoyed the listen, but found this book less exciting than his previous novels. little too much talk and not enough action also a little confusing at times, but i am easily confused
As all all reviews have written the narrator just doesn't fit the main character. It's an injustice to Brian Haig and to Sean Drummond fans. I served and was deployed to the region a few times over the years. The story really makes you think about the big picture, at least it did for me. Thanks Brian Haig for the Sean Drummond character, excited to see what he does next. I do hope you keep the plots and character development realistic and don't try to have Sean fighting zombies or something else way out there. Thanks again.
