    Fegan has been a "hard man" - an IRA killer in Northern Ireland. Now that peace has come, he is being haunted day and night by 12 ghosts: a mother and infant, a schoolboy, a butcher, an RUC constable, and seven other of his innocent victims. In order to appease them, he's going to have to kill the men who gave him orders. As he's working his way down the list, he encounters a woman who may offer him redemption; she has borne a child to an RUC officer and is an outsider too.

    David P. McGivern says: "What an unexpected good read!"
    "Plot pleases as narrator delivers"
    Overall

    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.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    Elle says: "I'd listen to Guidall read the tax code, so..."
    "Enjoyable for Regulars"

    Story

    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.
