    Every politician has a secret. And when the daughter of a politically connected family is kidnapped abroad, America's new president will agree to anything - even a deadly and ill-advised rescue plan - in order to keep his secret hidden.

    Overall

    Apparently this book was written for the barely literate. The plot is ridiculous and is so poorly developed that it must have been an outline that the editor passed on and forgot to read the final product. The presentation is equally silly and I'm not sure who is responsible for this- the director of the audio and/or the narrator. I feel dumber for having listened to it.

    The meeting place was carefully chosen: an abandoned church in rural Ireland just after dark. For Jonathan Quinn--a freelance operative and professional "cleaner" - the job was only to observe. If his cleanup skills were needed, it would mean things had gone horribly wrong. But an assassin hidden in a tree assured just that. And suddenly Quinn had four dead bodies to dispose of and one astounding clue - to a mystery that is about to spin wildly out of control.

    Story

    This is,unfortunately, a very lame story, read with more melodrama than it deserves and, in the end, was a major disappointment even as a mindless time filler while driving in rush hour traffic. The last two books that I have listened to that were read by Scott Brick have both been poor listens, I think in part due to the basic story lines being so bad, but also he is trying too hard to give these trite pieces more gravitas than they can handle.

    When John Sutter's aristocratic wife killed her mafia don lover, John left America and set out in his sailboat on a three-year journey around the world, eventually settling in London. Now, 10 years later, he has come home to the Gold Coast, that stretch of land on the North Shore of Long Island that once held the greatest concentration of wealth and power in America, to attend the imminent funeral of an old family servant.

    James B says: "Brilliant Conclusion to Gold Coast"
    "yikes!"
    Overall

    I was very disappointed in this book- the story was drawn out way too long for its content- there was so little there there that I kept expecting some plot twist or added depth. Imagine my disappointment when none came. I have enjoyed his other works but this one is a stinker

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "poorly done spy trash"
    Overall

    I like spy trash (hit man/spy/international thriller stuff) if it is done well and this one is not. The characters are routinely asked to do stupid things that would not be what even a casual reader of the genre would do in the situation. A frustrating listen at best.
