Smart example of a good book that becomes even better with the presence of a good narrator. Doyle's Irish accented narration helps create the proper context and characterization to make the plot plausible. By the way, the plot is more complicated than the blurb describes, and it improves as it develops. I look forward to more Stuart Neville/Gerard Doyle combinations.
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.
