    Would you listen to Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janus Reprisal again? Why?

    Yes. I love the Covert One characters


    What other book might you compare Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janus Reprisal to and why?

    The Haddes Factor


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    He kept true to the characters but has added his own flare. These don't read like an attempt to copy.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    At times

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Michael says: "TRIPE!!! Utter Tripe with horrible editing."

    Story

    I love the characters of the Presidential Agent Series. I think the dialogue is well done, and extremely funny. This story however was not. It was slow, non-interactive, and non-compelling. I was so excited to see that it was coming out, and so disappointed in it when it was over.

    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.

    Mitch Rapp and his protege, Mike Nash, may have met their match. The CIA has detected and intercepted two terrorist cells, but a third is feared to be on the loose. Led by a dangerous mastermind obsessed with becoming the leader of al-Qaeda, this determined and terrifying group is about to descend on America.

    Story

    If you just like Mitch Rapp, you will love this book. He is funny and at his best. The surrounding story and characters are less than intriguing however. I found this book to drag a bit, and that it was extremely predictable. Not my favorite of the series, but still a fun listen.

    Facing down mercenaries in Africa, Jason Bourne witnesses the death of an art dealer named Tracy Atherton. Her killing dredges up snatches of Bourne's impaired memory, in particular the murder of a young woman on Bali who entrusted him with a strangely engraved ring­­ - an artifact of such powerful significance that people have killed to obtain it. Now he's determined to find the ring's owner and purpose. But Bourne never knows what terrible acts he'll discover he committed when he digs into the past.
