    In a legendary novel that appears to predict the Cuban Missile Crisis of 1962, Graham Greene introduces James Wormold, a vacuum cleaner salesman whose life in transformed when he is asked to join the British Secret Service. He agrees, and finds himself with no information to offer, so begins to invent sources and agencies which do not exist, but which appear very real to his superiors.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I love Graham Greene and the narration is excellent, but the tacky music has no place in this book and is so intrusive that I am about to stop listening. Audible should monitor this sort of stuff and reject versions like this. Very disappointed.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    How could the performance have been better?

    Use George Guidall, the narrator for the other Rapp books. This narrator may be good for some topics, but is clearly innapropriate here. Granted, this is far from Faulkner, but all the characters sound like moronic, petulant idiots. A far cry from the result one would hear from a narrator of Guidall's caliber. Plus, the book is not one of the series' best, by a long shot.
