The story is enticing and, like others have said, it's a page-turner. However, many of the "turns" are far too predictable. I never like it when I figure out plot twists before they happen, and in this case I saw several of them coming -- and I am not very smart. On the other hand, the narration is good and captures the persona of the main character pretty well.
The plot is fairly predictable, but the execution of the narrative is the reason you read/listen to a Vince Flynn book. George Guidall is excellent as the narrator and makes listening to the story a fun experience. People who like Flynn will love this and people who haven't tried Flynn might be a little confused by the characters. The cast is pretty much the same as other "Assassin" books and Flynn doesn't bore his regular readers by reconstructing his characters, but newbies might not understand or appreciate some of the conflict between characters. So it is a good book but not one that new Flynn readers should start with.
