    Jack McClure is no stranger to trouble. From his street-savvy education on the mean streets of Washington, DC, to his military service and operations with ATF and DoD, danger has never been too far away. But ever since Jack McClure saved the life of Alli Carson, the first daughter, he’s discovered a whole new breed of enemy. These heartless wielders of power do not make headlines. They strike fast and silent, and leave no trace, manipulating foreign affairs from the shadows.

    Worst narration ever, He reads through action scenes with no emotion what so ever. He gives ridiculous Scooby Doo villain voices to the antagonists. It was torture.

    Just don't.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

    Would you listen to Locked On again? Why?

    No. I never listen twice. No point.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Locked On?

    It was a good story, true to form despite the obvious helper writing.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No way. But its possible I guess.


    Any additional comments?

    My only problem with this and the rest of the series was the political commentary. What was the point of that? It was clearly not necessary. It didn't add to anything. It made the characters seem a little absurd.

    Would you try another book from Robert Ludlum and Eric Van Lustbader and/or Jeremy Davidson?

    Absolutely. Even though these books often miss the mark in terms of reading like a Ludlum novel, a lot of cool stuff comes from just the attempt.


    Has Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Dominion turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No way.


    What about Jeremy Davidson’s performance did you like?

    I can appreciate the decisions he made that kept the character consistent. It has to be hard to keep the character feeling the same from book to book with different narrators.


    Could you see Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Bourne Dominion being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    These questions really have to go.


    Any additional comments?

    If you have committed to the Bourne character then i don't really know how you can pas son this. It's not the best but its one of the closer to real ones out there.

    In Switzerland, a brutally efficient hit squad storms the U.S. embassy, stealing classified files and leaving no witnesses alive. Under intense political pressure to find those behind the attack - with Congressional leaders demanding military action - the CIA turns to the deadliest agent they know: Scorpion. But Scorpion is unwilling to get involved...until he learns his name is at the top of one of the stolen lists.

    Story
    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    It's a decent book. It's nice to see a character that is so competent. I'm more interested when the expert is put in a tough situation as opposed to the every man.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    The action is fantastic and well read. I would like more background detail. In that respect it almost felt abridged.


    What aspect of Paul Boehmer’s performance would you have changed?

    Nothing. He's a rock star.


    Could you see Scorpion Deception being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Yikes, I hate this question.


    Any additional comments?

    Buy it.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    This is the weakest, thematically, of this series. It lacks depth - this character needs a stronger back story.


    Has The Hit turned you off from other books in this genre?

    No way.


    What about Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s performance did you like?

    Everything. The performance is fantastic. I love that team.


    Could you see The Hit being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Eh


    Any additional comments?

    It's a decent representation of the genre, but for me, the weakest of the series.
