    After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America.

    Scott says: "Does not measure up"

    Story
    What did you like best about Path of the Assassin? What did you like least?

    The story actually did get my attention, however, the writing is mediocre at best. It is surprising that a big name publisher would endorse Thor with his often hackneyed style and unimaginative descriptions. I found the sum of it disappointing. The narrator mispronounced words throughout the book and sounded unprofessional in his presentation.


    Would you recommend Path of the Assassin to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would not recommend this book because it falls, perhaps, in the middle of the pack in this genre. Instead, I would suggest authors who have a higher level of writing intelligence.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The narrator's inflections, mispronunciations and overall poor acting ability made the flaws of the book more noticeable. The quality of the narration was, unfortunately, commensurate with the writer's skills.


    Was Path of the Assassin worth the listening time?

    The story was actually interesting, but I don't plan to buy any more Thor books.


    Any additional comments?

    Sorry to fans, author and narrator, but I will spend my time elsewhere.
