This book opens with an interesting and believable premise, but quickly turns into a parody of a James Bond movie. Over and over, ridiculous action sequences are inserted that have no bearing on the story, and in some cases they're so sketchy that they had me laughing at loud.
The villains behave in entirely unbelievable ways, and I found myself correctly guessing some of the twists near the end, not because of clues the author had provided, but because the twists were the most ridiculous coincidences I could imagine.
The book is great, but the narrator is awful. As noted in other reviews, it often seems that he's reading the book for the first time, and he stumbles over words, or uses the wrong inflection. There are occasional awkward pauses before the last few words of a sentence are spoken, almost as if the narrator was turning the page. I finally stopped listening and got the book instead.
