I'm happy to report that this is an excellent book! I listen to 50 books a year, many from this genre i.e. all the Eislers, Flynn etc. This is right up there. Excellent main character, hightly skilled but not cartoonish. Great bad guys. I'm ready for the next immediately. Once I adapted to reader after first half hour or so, I found him very good. Took a little while to get used to his voice and keep from drifting. By the end I was able to differentiate all the characters clearly with his acting. I would definitely recommend this fast paced straightforward book!
I read all of Barry Eisler Books, this is definitely up there in terms of interest, violence and story. I enjoyed it very much and finished in two days. Keep them coming.
I've listened to all of the Russell Blake books on audible. Each one is a delight. I love the Assassin Series and the narrator. You can't go wrong with any of russell Blake's books. He's very responsive on his website when you have questions. Definitely recommend.
The first half of the book is putting together the characters and what's going on but there is action. The second half really takes off with everything you'd ever want with an action thriller. Definitely recommend.
Good writing, original story and not really predictable. Really enjoyed it. Would love to see the sequel on audible. I had to speed up the narration a bit but I usually do that or else I start to drift. Probably needs it more so from this reader but not too bad. Overall worth your money or credit.
Very good book. Well developed and well told. Very good narrator, did a great job. Great characters. Recommend
I love this genre. Read or listened to all the Flynns, Silva, Eisler, Coes. This book is right up there at the top. Great story, great character, no slow spots easy to follow and semi realistic for normal people probably very realistic for spec ops people. You can't go wrong with this one, worth every penny and minute of your time. The narrator was very good, the only reason he didn't get a five is because he didn't differetiate the characters voices enough but did a fine job. He wasn't boring or too slow.
Easy listen, great narration great action well researched as usual. Pretty much what you'd expect from Rain and the gang. Can't wait for the next one.
