    The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world.

    Overall

    The “State Of The Union” was as thrilling as promised in the summary. If you enjoy action, “edge of your seat” suspense you won’t be disappointed! I began this book at bedtime and had to force myself, after 2 l/2 hours of listening, to turn it off. My attention was captured in the first hour. There were more than a half dozens enthralling parts in the book including torture, under water action, and ticking bombs. One thing that put it over the top for me was there wasn’t just one hero that saved millions of lives, there were several which lended the book more plausibility. After listening to this book, I will be even more patient with our airport security!

    As always, George Gudell’s narration was stellar! Loray.

    Behind the well-known U.S. security organizations - the FBI and CIA among them - lies a heavily guarded, anonymous government agency dedicated to intelligence surveillance and to a highly specialized brand of citizen protection. Shock waves of alarm ripple through the clandestine agency when Washington, D.C., police detective Ryan Kessler inexplicably becomes the target of Henry Loving, a seasoned, ruthless “lifter” hired to obtain information using whatever means necessary.

    Ramon says: "Thrilling book with reasonable narrator"
    "Skipp Wasn't That Bad!"
    Overall

    The Edge had well-developed characters and many twists and turns. Once I was 2 or 3 hours into the book, I was able to overlook the narration. Skipp Suduth, the narrator, is not Scot Brick; however, I have definitely listened to worse! The main character was a board game enthusiast and was able to incorporate his strategic "board game intellectual mind" in his job as a shepherd (One who delivers witnesses to a safe house.) Between the two places there were many challenges where the main character was always trying to think a few moves ahead of the "bad guys." Just pay attention because the character's voices (inflections) are hard to differentiate. Over all, 4 stars to Mr. Deaver! Loray.
