    Cavanaugh, a former member of Delta Force, is hired by a brilliant scientist named Prescott who needs protection from a drug lord seeking the highly addictive drug he has invented. At least that is what Cavanaugh is led to believe. After Cavanaugh trains the scientist in escape and evasion, the unthinkable occurs: Cavanaugh's team is viciously attacked and entirely wiped out - and Prescott seems to be in collusion with the attackers.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Excellent story, not a dull moment."

    Overall

    This author appears to have been paid by the word. He describes everything to the minutest detail - no matter how irrelevant.
    The plot drags on and on with and ultimately makes no sense. I just wanted the book to end and uttered a sigh of relief when it was done. I kept fast-forwarding because I couldn't stand the never ending descriptions of irrelevant facts. I have no idea why this book has a 4.3 rating. It is one of the worst I've bought on audible.com!!

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    "Engrossing Story and the Best Narrator Ever!!"
    Overall

    Although this book is quite long (40 hours), I was so sad when I finished it. I wish it could have lasted another 40! The storyline is engrossing as it weaves historical facts with a truly captivating fictional story. You can't help but get emotionally involved in the lives of the principal characters as you following their lives from 1951 through the 1990's. The narrator Scott Brick is absolutely wonderful!!. He can do a myriad of accents, and can masterfully handle female parts just as well as he handles the male characters. His imitation of Reagan was incredibly accurate - not just the voice, but the whole essence of Reagan's apparent play acting as President. If you want to try one book to decide if audio books are for you, this is the one!!
