    Harrison Sinclair, director of the CIA, has been killed in a car accident. His son-in-law, Ben Ellison - an attorney and ex-agent - instantly hears rumors of sinister forces within the Agency. The hunt for the truth will rush Ben headlong into a web of conspiracy beyond his control, where he is compelled by an artful, inescapable maneuver back into the employ of the CIA, and lured into a top-secret espionage project in telepathy that will endow him with "extraordinary powers"....

    Bob says: "Disappointing"
    "Story good, but narrator sub-par"
    Overall

    I love Joseph Finder's writing, but I was so distracted by this narrator's "voice" for the lead character, that I decided to read it in print instead. To give him his due, when he read other characters he was fine, but the tone of the main character, Ben Ellison, is just inappropriate.

    For six years, Alec Milius has been trying to escape his past, but his past refuses to release him. Abandoned by MI6 after a disastrous operation against the CIA, Milius has slowly rebuilt his life in Madrid. Older and wiser than the young spy who first caught the eye of British Intelligence, Milius still has a talent for deception - and a fatal weakness for secrets. So when a prominent politician disappears under suspicious circumstances, Milius can't resist tracking him down.

    Jack says: "Great book"
    "Top in Genre"
    Overall

    The audio recording of The Spanish Game is excellent. Simon Vance's reading enriches the storyline, which is a unique tale of a spy "coming in and out of the cold." Cumming's characters are multi-layered and complicated making this a must read for anyone who loves good writing and especially good writing in the spy genre.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: How do you one-up a book that’s already a global literary phenomenon? Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue. It's about the disappearance 40 years ago of Harriet Vanger, a young scion of one of the wealthiest families in Sweden.

    Pamela Murphy says: "COULD NOT PUT IT DOWN"
    "Great Narration"
    Overall

    I found this story so compelling I couldn't wait to read the next book in this series, "The Girl who Played With Fire." The characters are more unique than most of the characters in the mystery/thrillers I read and I really enjoyed the details about Swedish locations. Most of all I loved Simon Vance's narration and think his British accent added to the overall effect.
