    August 6, 1943: In his brief career in the Office of Strategic Services, 24-year-old Cletus Frade has already been involved in a lot of unusual situations, but nothing like the one he's in now, standing with a German lieutenant colonel named Wilhelm Frogger in a Mississippi prisoner-of-war detention facility.

    The first disturbing reports reached Delta Force Lieutenant Colonel Charley Castillo in the form of backchannel messages concerning covert U.S. intelligence assets working for a variety of agencies suddenly gone missing and then, suddenly, inexplicably, found dying. Or dead. One in Budapest, Hungary. One in Kiev, Ukraine. One in Ashgabat, Turkmenistan, mere klicks from the Iran border.

    Would you try another book from Vince Flynn and/or Nick Sullivan?

    not nick


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Transfer of Power?

    when the rag head tried to kill the pres.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His thespian acumen is lacking. it was often read as a child would read and the teacher had to remind them to "read with expression"".


    Do you think Transfer of Power needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    i didnt finish it the narrator caused me to lose it

    The action begins in the heart of Iran, where billions of dollars are being spent on the development of a nuclear program. No longer willing to wait for the international community to stop its neighboring enemy, Israel launches a creative and daring operation that leaves a radioactive tomb in the middle of Iran's second largest city. An outraged Iranian government publicly blames both Israel and the United States and demands retribution.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    No


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Protect and Defend?

    Rapp's love affairs that never seem to materialize fully to family status because of his job


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    A new narrator , very mechanical. Not a good actor. It was difficult to distinguish between characters.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator can make or break the story, Shultz was struggling and didn't quite make it.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Jean says: "Dead Or Alive"
    "Too many words- too little story"
    Overall

    I think there was a plot in there; something like catch the bad terrorist, if written with halt the words it may have been interesting.
    a generous supply of characters with too many different agendas becomes confusing. Then it becomes boring, and at the end it becomes pretty exciting. not worth the time to get there.
