I like thrillers and mysteries and usually listen during my bus ride to & from work. "Req. for an Assassin" kept my interest nicely. The rather detailed information on assassination planning Isler works into the plot line was believable. The protagonist had human (but a little funny) flaws and was likeable. IF you really want to pick the book apart you could say the plot/ characters are not fully realistic, a tad weak; but it is fiction, after all, and not reality TV.
I have always liked Scott Brick as a narrator and did here as well. I would recommend not listening to several books in a row read by him unless it is part of a series because some of his characterizations sound similar from book to book. Initially I found myself personifying Raine with characters from another author's book. BUT I've never had a problem with keeping which voice/accent belongs to which character in the books which Brick reads.
I was very happy with this light-weight read and would be happy to listen to another book by the same author.
