Novel #2 in the Dewey Andreas series was an ok follow up to the great beginning book. This is a series that should be read in order as they do build upon each other.
Again, Andreas fights thru a plethora of bad and evil to come out the winner in this pro-American, "We're the Best", You all suck philosophy that rule the terrorist and thriller genre.
The new narrator was as successful in detailing Andreas and the rest of the characters in this book as Peter Hermann, the narrator for book #1.
An excellent follow up..not quite as dramatic but well worth your credit. I'm just going to go ahead and purchase the following 3 books..you might say I'm hooked on Dewey Andreas.
This story is a good one and I like the premise of a war between Pakistan and India (an all too real possibility in today's political climate). However, some piggy the characterizations gave me pause. I has a hard time accepting that an Islamic terrorist would cuss like an octogenarian retired Merchant Marine, much less tell his contrary to "Shut his piehole." This suspended my believability of the character and almost turned it into a comedy to me. It seemed totally out of place. But other than that, a pretty well told story.
Captivating plot, very good character development, and twist after twist with barely a moment to relax, all tied up by a most satisfying denouement. Thanks to both the author and the narrator!!
This was a great fast paced story. I'm looking forward to book three. It held my interest and I do not usually enjoy this genre of book. Book one was good, but this one was better.
Very Intelligent plot. Excellent narration with accents. Strange use of names though for Pakistanis officials.
my only complaint, and this may be petty, is that I became distracted by the performer's sucking in breaths that was quite loud. I wonder if I just hadn't noticed it the 200 audible books before, but the next book's author hasn't done that.
poor research is enough to make this book off putting in first 2 chapters.
Typical bond movie plot which keep you interested even though you can always predict the ending. Narration was good.
It took me a long time to get into this book. Perhaps because Dewey really isn't even mentioned until chapter 15 and because the real action doesn't start until chapter 50, which is almost the end of the book. I thought the first book was great, but I almost gave up on this one. Dewey's character is great and the action when it happens is engaging as well, but based on this one I doubt I'll get another one of these books.

I don't usually read action books - detective, mystery, action, romance, all have formulas and are completely predictable. But then, I think that's why we enjoy them - temporary retreat from reality. I enjoyed it even more when "The Brink" came on, redoing the plot as a satire.
