    Charlie Heller is an ace cryptographer for the Company. He's a quiet man with a quiet job in a back office. But when terrorists shoot his fiancee in cold blood and Heller learns that the Agency has decided not to pursue those responsible, his life takes an abrupt turn. He was not a blackmailer but he will force the CIA's hand. He was not an assassin but he will penetrate the Iron Curtain with the intent to kill. Heller is an amateur with a one-in-a-million chance of success.

    Pamela says: "Robert Littell is no amateur"
    "Obsessed detail"
    Overall

    I finished listening to this book, but at times it was seriously aggravating to listen to the authors absolute obsession with overused detail(My opinion). Other than that the subject and content was good. I would be hesitant to listen to another book from this author if he has the same style on the rest of his books.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."

    The stage is set. Now, on the shadowy East-West battlefield of Mexico City, British intelligence agent Bernard Samson must entice his opposite number, a disaffected KGB major, to take the final, dramatic step and defect. But the price of one Russian's freedom must be paid in blood, blood that Samson unexpectedly and incriminatingly finds on his own hands. On every side, he becomes dangerously enmeshed in an intricate web of suspicion and hatred.

    Tim says: "Classic Cold War Spy Stuff"
    "This is a very bad book"
    Overall

    I stuck with this book for while, but I couldn't take it any longer. I finally turned off. Poor plot, a lot of Bla,Bla, like a soap opera. Great Book help you sleep. I paid a lot for this book so I felt like I was committed to listen to it. The narrator was fine, I just wish he had so substance to read.

    When Secret Intelligence Service deniable operator Nick Stone aborts an officially sanctioned assassination attempt at the Houses of Parliament, having realised who the target is, he is given a chilling ultimatum by his bosses: fly to Panama and finish the job, or Kelly, the 11-year-old orphan in his guardianship, will be killed.

    Overall

    I thought the plot was very weak, you really had a stretch your imagination to believe any of this. This was a very boring book.

    This is a incredible story, I thought I had it figured out. The end was a big surprise but certainly poetic justice. Someone complained about the narrator, so I was looking to critique, but frankly I enjoyed him very much.
    Great book.

    In his final hours in the Oval Office, the outgoing President grants a controversial last-minute pardon to Joel Backman, a notorious Washington power broker who has spent the last six years hidden away in a federal prison. What no one knows is that the President issues the pardon only after receiving enormous pressure from the CIA. It seems Backman, in his power broker heyday, may have obtained secrets that compromise the world's most sophisticated satellite surveillance system.

    User33 says: "Best Grisham to date!"
    "Grisham Great book"

    Great Story, I could not put it down.
