    Suspenseful, compelling, and utterly believable, The Bank of Fear is unparalleled spy fiction in the best tradition of Graham Greene and John le Carré—a twisting tale of the ruthless greed and money laundering behind today’s headlines.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    The premise of this book predates the 2nd Iraq war, and as such requires you to envision a very different outcome than actual historical events.

    Camille Black is approached by the CIA for an important mission: to track down and eliminate a man accused of selling arms to terrorist cells. But her quarry is her ex-fiancé, Hunter Smith. Battling her old feelings, but fueled by his disloyalty both to her and to his country, Camille sets off into the shadows of the War on Terror to find him.

    Overall

    When I 1st read this book, I found the story line not plausible, but still entertaining. Since then, I've talked to friends in the Iraq war and kept better track of news reports. The fiction in this book has tracked recent events more closely than one might hope....

  • The Sigma Protocol

    Do you think you know what really happened after World War II? You don't. Sigma made sure of that. "Ludlum's trademark skills of intricate plotting, breakneck pacing, and high-wire drama are all on display in this gripping thriller," writes Amazon.com.

    Dan says: "Good story until the far fetched ending"
    "Classic Ludlum"
    Overall

    If you liked other ludlum books, you should like this one. It has the standard formula regarding a character pressed into a situation requiring heroic feats, but has enough twists to keep it interesting.

    With cold war loyalties shifting in the freezing wind, Bernard is forced back into the "game", this time without the moral sureness that evil lies exclusively on the other side of the Iron Curtain. Caught between his job and his ethics, his past and his future, and the two women he loves, trapped in a maze of deception and danger where nothing is what it seems, Samson undertakes a mission that leads from rural Poland to the heart of London Central.

    C. Stumpe says: "Hard to like this story"
    "Hard to like this story"
    Overall

    This is the first audiobook that I couldn't finish. It was difficult to like the characters, and the plot line was for lack of a better word, boring.
