    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.

    Luck8 says: "Best of Presidential Agent Series"
    "Worst Listen"
    Overall

    By far the worst read I have ever purchased from Audible. After finishing a le Carr? novel, which I enjoyed tremendously, I thought I would continue in the spy genre so I purchased this New York Times bestseller. Suffice it to say that it read like the wet dream of a 15 year old video game aficionado undergoing a testosterone storm. However, the language and plot structure were far below the level of most 15 year-old authors. The icing on the cake was the narrator's childish sense of irony and his ridiculous repertoire of accents.

    Oliver Stone and the Camel Club are back in their most dangerous adventure yet, a war on two fronts. Casino king Jerry Bagger from The Collectors is hunting Annabelle Conroy, who conned him out of millions. Stone and his colleagues Reuben, Milton, and Caleb marshal all their resources to protect Annabelle. Yet all their skills may not be enough when a deadly new opponent rips off the veneer of Stone's own mysterious past.

    Louise says: "Stone Cold fantastic"
    "Don't Bother"
    Overall

    I was disappointed. The story was predictable and formulaic. The characters were one dimensional stereotypes with the depth of a cartoon. Although I understand the requirement for suspension of disbelief as it applies to a thriller, Baldacci goes too far with his septuagenarian hero tuning into a twenty something killing machine at will.
