I heard about this book on NPR and it sounded good. I was excited to see it available on Audible! I just finished the book and it was thrilling to the end. Great story of international (mostly European) intrigue. The book is written from the viewpoint of Sam, who had seen his wife abducted and thereby looks like a traitor to his employer (CIA). Sam tries to find his wife and winds up in a plot line with not just kidnapping, but weapons, trafficking, more kidnapping, and the list goes on. Very well written and enjoyable to read.
The narrator does an absolutely wonderful job with many languages and dialects. Exceptionally well done, in my opinion.
I recommended this book to several folks before I finished it and recommend it highly to anyone who enjoys a strong plot, good story-telling and, for Audible folks - fun dialects as well.
From the very beginning until the end, this was a wild ride that never slowed down.
The first chapter drew me in to the runaway plot line and I couldn't stop until the conclusion.
Great thriller. The sequel just was released and I can't wait to get it.
The audio book was entertaining and engaging. It kept my interest -- and I never felt like it was time to turn it off. But, the story was a bit of a cliche -- and unbelievable at times. In summary... it was a like watching a decent "made for TV movie of the week". Entertaining.. but not literary. Narrator did a fine job.
Let the hero solve his problems without external help. Show the reader how the hero developed his skill set.
