    Nick Stone, ex-SAS, now with British Intelligence, discovers the seemingly sensless murders of fellow SAS soldier Kev Brown and his family in Washington, D.C. Only Kelly, seven-years-old, has survived, and immediately the two of them are on the run from unidentified pursuers.

    From the description, this sounded right up my alley. Normally, this is exactly the type of book that I like.... but this one was painful. I just couldn't get through it. I feel like it just never took off....

    It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend READING this book because George Guidall is the worst!!!


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Mitch Rapp is awesome and the books keep getting better and better.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?

    NEVER


    Any additional comments?

    Why George Guidall? Of all of the narrators that are Mitch Rapp's age, why on earth would you choose someone who makes every character sound like they are 70 years old? Irene Kennedy sounds like an old woman, Rapp sounds like a crotchety old man.... UGH! It's agony. I think I'm going to have to switch to READING the books because George Guidall's voice is bothering me more and more with each book that I listen to. UNFORTUNATELY, I've already purchased a good portion of the series in advance because I love Rapp so much....

    For years, Mitch Rapp's bold actions have saved the lives of countless Americans. His battles for peace and freedom have made him a hero to many, and an enemy to countless more. In the tangled, duplicitous world of espionage, there are those, even among America's allies, who want to see Mitch Rapp eliminated. They have decided the time has come.

    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of George Guidall?

    Scott Brick should have been Mitch Rapp! Or maybe Dennis Boutsikaris or Will Patton. You name it!!
    George Guidall makes Mitch sound like an old man. Heck, he makes every character sound like an old man.... men, women, children... it's painful to listen to.

    I love The Rapp series, but I cringe when I first start listening...

    George Orwell depicts a gray, totalitarian world dominated by Big Brother and its vast network of agents, including the Thought Police - a world in which news is manufactured according to the authorities' will and people live tepid lives by rote. Winston Smith, a hero with no heroic qualities, longs only for truth and decency. But living in a social system in which privacy does not exist and where those with unorthodox ideas are brainwashed or put to death, he knows there is no hope for him.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of 1984?

    A sequel to the New York Times best-selling novel, Masquerade, The Coil picks up several years later. Liz Sansborough, former CIA agent and now an academic, has managed to put the pieces of her life back together. But Sansborough has a dark secret, she is the daughter of the one of the most notorious Cold War assassins, The Carnivore.

    Overall

    I got turned on to Gayle Lynds when I realized that she was actually the author of some of the Robert Ludlum "Covert-One" novels. I enjoyed them so much that I began to look for her other books. This was my first and I was hooked! She is fantastic! Her characters are great and stories exciting and suspenseful!

    I'm a big fan!!! If you like Ludlum, you'll love Gayle Lynds!
