    Story

    I love this series and look forward for months until the next book comes out. It's still a great series, but I am so disappointed with the narration. Phil Gigante who read the previous books gave life to the characters and while generally speaking I very much enjoy Simon Vance, he is a poor choice for this series. He has a great voice for a lot of books, but not for this one. The characters were so much more rounded and lively with the previous narrators (Phil Gigante and John Lee). The book is still good so far, I haven't finished it yet, but the narration, very, very disappointing. Maybe, Daniel Silva can commission another version with the narration of Phil Gigante or John Lee.
