    Ireland 1963. As the Irish people prepare to welcome President John F. Kennedy to the land of his ancestors, a German national is murdered in a seaside guesthouse. Lieutenant Albert Ryan, Directorate of Intelligence, is ordered to investigate. The German is the third foreigner to die within a few days, and Minister for Justice Charles Haughey wants the killing to end lest, a shameful secret be exposed: the dead men were all Nazis granted asylum by the Irish government in the years following World War II.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    If they were interested in WW2 fiction. It's worth a free credit.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Ratlines?

    Decent plot twists.


    What three words best describe Alan Smyth’s voice?

    Tries too hard.


    Could you see Ratlines being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    I actually could, but have no idea who would be main characters.


    Any additional comments?

    It wasn't bad. If you're thinking about getting it you should. It's worth the credit and your time to listen. I realize its a difficult job but the narrator could have done better and takes some getting used to.

    Beverly Hills native Aaron Cohen was 18 years old when he left behind his privileged American life with the single-minded ambition of joining Israel's top anti-terrorist commando unit. After 15 months of grueling training, Cohen was offered the only post a non-Israeli can hold.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Self centered jerkoffs


    Has Brotherhood of Warriors turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Im not sure it's fair for me to give only one star to the narrator, but everything about this story absolutely SUCKED


    What character would you cut from Brotherhood of Warriors?

    The author, Aaron Cohen!


    Any additional comments?

    The most self centered book I could imagine. I bought this book thinking it was about a "Brotherhood of Warriors" and all it was about was Aaron Cohen's self centered story. There was absolutely nothing about brotherhood or teamwork. Look at me, I think I'm a bad ass, I fight people and my parents are rich. Oh, did I mention how I think I'm elite?Ill never get back the time I waisted listening to this. I could have been listening to American Sniper or Warrior Elite or War or The Good Soldiers. Those books are actually about teamwork and real brotherhood. Aaron Cohen may be a veteran of a great and highly respected unit in the Israeli army, but he certainly didn't learn how to be humble. You will be pissed if you buy this! I told you so!
