    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.

    Graham S. Stafford says: "Love the Camel Club"
    "Solid plot-driven excitement"
    Overall

    The story starts out somewhat more plausibly than it ends up, but the twists and turns of the plot kept me glued to my seat even when they were a bit far-fetched. It has bad guys you love to hate, and good guys you want desperately to survive and succeed. It's not profound, but good entertainment just the same.

    Tim Ekaterin's merchant bank, like all banks, only invests in sure things. Now he's about to involve it in ₤5 million of prime horseflesh, a stallion called Sandcastle. Top breeders reckon it's the safest bet in racing. But racing doesn┬┐t just attract the money men of the city. It's riddled with all kinds of dubious dealmakers. People who don't think twice about breaking bones. People to whom no bet is safe until it's paid in blood, Ekaterin's blood.

    "Not one of his best"
    Overall

    I'm a big Dick Francis fan, and since discovering audio books, a big Tony Britton fan. The narrator is as good as always and does not disappoint here. On the other hand, this particular DF novel is just adequate. It's starts off at a very slow pace and works up to a medium-paced one that held my interest, before it falls off again at the very end. I don't consider it a waste of time by any means, but I have enjoyed several other of his novels much better.

    Keller possesses all the qualities of a professional killer. He's cool, confident, reclusive, icy, and ruthlessly efficient. But this seasoned hit man is also prone to self-doubt as he finds himself caught in the clutches of a mid-life crisis.

    Barbara A. Russell says: "Surprisingly Terrific"
    "Not what you expect"
    Overall

    I bought this audiobook because it sounded like a murder mystery, one of my favorite genres. But it's not. It's a human interest story about a guy who is a professional hit man (surprise!). I thought to myself: I'm not going to like this, but it turned out to be one of my favorite reads. The story is very original; the main character is engaging. It's interesting how you wind up liking a guy you don't approve of, probably because you perceive motives that you may either find inside yourself, or that you can at least understand and relate to.
