An even remotely believable protagonist
Maybe if you are a fan of action video games you might enjoy the absurd action sequences that make up this book. The hero dies death again and again with increasingly more improbably high jinx. I like a good action story but this was just ridiculous.
What a super-sonic ride! From the first page, the action was non-stop. A solitary good guy up against insurmountable odds in international hot spots. I loved it and the main character. Can't wait to see the movie!
If you're into these types of action novels, as I am, this is worth a listen. It was entertaining while driving and doing things around the house. However, it was somewhat generic. Tough guy gets chased by bad guys. Tough guy gets hurt bad and should be dead. Tough guy kills bad guys. There's even the "have to save the innocent little girls!" thrown in. Again, entertaining, but just not what I expected given the other projects the author has been involved with. Certainly sets up a series, and I'll likely listen to at least one more to see where it goes.
In the world of the covert operative, it's always handy to be able to be able to save the damsel in distress even though you are trapped in a room with no apparent exit, and have two broken bones, have lost so much blood that you look like a zombie, and are recovering from a bullet to the thigh, not to mention the six inch blade still in your abdomen.In summary, that is the general idea of this story. If you like that stuff, this is for you. If you appreciate some semblance of reality and/or plausibility, then I do not suggest you purchase this book.I also have little tolerance for performers who apparently have never seen a word in a foreign language, and couldn't pronounce it even if they had.
Exciting story! Several great twists and turns!
Have not heard Jay Snyder before, but he was terrific! He did so many different accents and voices he was a great choice for a novel with an international flavor!
on the trail
Jay Snyder did an amazing job narrating this book. His ability to use different accents was superb. The suspenseful plot keeps the listener on the edge of his seat.
If you like killing and high drama thriller action, Mark Greaney has written a book for you. Although some of the story lines in the book are implausible it's a great listen as long as you're willing to overlook some of the unlikely sub stories.
