    Ninety-nine elite American soldiers are trapped in the middle of a hostile city. As night falls, they are surrounded by thousands of enemy gunmen. Their wounded are bleeding to death. Their ammunition and supplies are dwindling. This is the story of how they got there - and how they fought their way out. Black Hawk Down drops you into a crowded marketplace in the heart of Mogadishu, Somalia with the U.S. Special Forces and puts you in the middle of the most intense firelight American soldiers have fought since the Vietnam war.

    Over the course of this gripping narrative, Dave Cullen approaches his subjects with unrivaled care and insight. What emerges are shattering portraits of the killers, the victims, and the community that suffered one of the greatest - and most socially and historically important - shooting tragedies of the 20th century.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Love the book, love the narrator!"

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hit Man to be better than the print version?

    Yes, I really like listening to the book. You can rest your eyes and just listen. Or you can drive and listen. Or you can do housework and listen. Or garden and listen. Or exercise and listen. I consider audible my ultimate productivity and multitasking tool.


    What about Robert Forster’s performance did you like?

    I love his voice, and his storytelling style, rather than some narrator's style of dramatization.
