If you are a Brad Thor fan please start with this book. This book helps set up the character to understand why he does what he does. Lots of action. It also gives a little history lesson.
This is the first Brad Thor novel I have read/heard. The performer read the book with no emotion, no change in character and amateurish. The content of what he had to read was juvenile as well. I would not recommend.
The series is excellent! This one lives up to billing! Armand gives another great performance.
Excellent Action & Excitement
I wish this was unabridged and the other early books in this series were available unabridged. I have bought the next book in the series on paperback and have almost finished it. Love this series.
I was disappointed that Audible did not offer this as an unabridged version. On occasion, new characters pop in and out with little or no background, but seem to have a larger impact behind the scenes. After reading / listening to a number of books by similar styled authors, this one is predictable, but kills 5 hours and wasn't disagreeable.
There were times when I came to the end of my commute that I would want it to continue, but there were really no cliff hangers.
I listen to approximately 25 hours per week and have downloaded over 400 books on Audible. Mostly I like mysteries, fantasy and scifi.
I do not like abridged books. I don't think I realized this was when I got it but I still gave it a try. It wasn't great. It would be a good book if it wasn't abridged so if you like the Brad Thor series or books in this vein (Vince Flynn, etc), you should find the unabridged book and give it a try.
I love most of Brad Thor's titles and he has other titles that are much better.
Somewhat disappointed but, every book is a risk. Other titles by much better.
The story was incomplete.
Although I had the unabridged version, it seemed abridged to me - things were left out or glossed over that would have made it a more complete story.
He is an excellent narrator.
Great story, The cast of characters in this series is woven well and makes it interesting no matter what order you listen to them in.
Harvath is the central character and very resourceful but Mueller also has a great role as well as the villain.
The swiss really aren't neutral!
Mr. Thor could take a few character development lessons from Vince Flynn. Scot Harvath is too smart mouthed to be believable. Mr. Harvath would get his smart alec butt kicked by Mitch Rapp. The only saving grace for this series is George Guidall for the next book. I will try one more....
