I'm a fan of this author and listened to 90 percent of his books. This one predates most that I listened to. The narrator Jewish accent sounds very German which is annoying and just no where as good as the present guy they have doing all the authors books now. The dialogue between Rapp and his girlfriend goes adnausim but the subject and story are good once you get past the afore mentioned.
Narrator over acts every sentence so it goes from too loud to whispering in every sentence. He acts every character as angry when the author didn't write them all that way. It's distracting and frustrating. I enjoyed the story very much. I just wish I'd read the hard copy instead.
I have enjoyed this series but I can't finish this one because the narrator took a whole different direction with every character. It is so bad I had to stop listening and skipped to the next one. Can I get a refund??
Unfortunately Kliban destroyed every character in this novel- everyone became a whining sniveling irritation. He even made Rapp sound like he was whining! Mitch Rapp would never whine!! I only listened to this so I could stay on track for Vince Flynn's excellent series about Mitch Rapp. Please redo this and any other Mitch Rapp story by having a true artist narrate it- meaning George Guidall!
The Narrator! He would be great for other books but not for Mitch Rapp!! He made him sound like a bitchy little man, not the bad ass Mitch is!
Not on any book with a similar store and or main character.
Please do not ask Ken to read any more Mitch Rapp books!!

I think the performance as good, but I didn't like switching narrators from books 1-2 and then 3-4 and now a new one for book 5. I didn't like how the narrator changed the pronunciation of a few characters names. Beyond that, good performance.
Story was great! Not as INTENSE as Book 1 or 2, but very intriguing!!
Will read agin once I get through all the books!
I am listening to the Mitch Rapp series in sequential order and this narrator was by far the worst. I did not like that he changed the pronunciations of character names and his generals points of inflection were not very good. I only stuck with the story because I like the series, and the next book goes back to the original narrator (who was excellent).
