I especially like stories where the authors mixes in some fact with the fiction and doing so in a way where the reader can't always tell where the line is between them.
Oliver North's books are ones to compare the fact mixed in with the fiction. The story of the covert operative compares with Mitch Rapp and John Wells.
This is my first time listening to John Lee and I was very pleased. I especially like listening to George Guidall and listened to the ones in this series that he read first. While I was hoping the Mr. Guidall would be the one narrating the entire series, I wanted to listen to this book because I like the authors story. I will end up starting the next book in the series tomorrow and look forward to listening to Mr. Lee again. When I first started the book I did a double take thinking that maybe Mr. Lee was really Sean Connery, whom I really like too. The Sean Connery voice is that of the story narrator, the voice telling the story in between the voices of the various characters.
I have not read this book in print, so I couldn't compare.
I especially like listening to George Guidall perform. I agree with another reviewer who I recall wrote something to the effect that he could listen to George Guidall read the tax code. When I'm searching for the next book, I sometimes look through the list of books he's narrated to see which ones might be of interest.
I save my audio books for the bus ride to work and a few minutes before bed. If I had the time and unlimited funds I might enjoy this in one sitting, however, I need to make them last a little while.
I enjoy the story's inclusion of historical facts mixed in with the fiction. Especially for covert op type of stories, because it makes you wonder how much of the story really is true.
