    Two years ago, Robin Monarch was a top level CIA operative—perhaps the best they had when it came to black bag operations. Then one day, in the middle of an operation, with his team around him in the field, Monarch walked away, leaving his old life and friends behind without a word of explanation. Now this ex-soldier, ex-operative, and orphan with a murky past is a thief, stealing from the super-rich and has surfaced in St. Tropez.

    Really great series......but this one sort of faltered toward the end. Lots of internal drama that could have been skipped but in the end it came out all right. McLeod Andrews did an excellent job and he made each voice sound distinct. I give it 3 out of 4 stars.

    In this brand-new Grimnoir Chronicles story written exclusively for Audible, it's 1937 - four years after the Grimnoir Society defeated the magical alien force known as The Power. "Heavy" Jake Sullivan is summoned by his oddest ally, Dr. Wells, to stop the bombing of a new ultra-luxury airship. Amid the glitz, the gambling, and the high-society types, Sullivan races time to hunt for the saboteur. But surrounded by a blimp-full of Germans, Russians, Imperium Iron Guard, and other magical enemies - where can he even begin?

    In my opinion this might be the best series of books ever written. And my only problem is that this book was not longer. We got a glimpse back into the life of Jake Sullivan 4 years after the last novel and he hasn't slowed down a bit. Bronson Pinchot is excellent as always.

    Alright lets get down to it people....... I love Mark Greaney and has done a fine job of taking the mantle from Tom Clancy. The story is well thought out, well written, and is entertaining. But WTF happened to Lou Diamond Phillips....this guy is AWESOME as a narrator. Scott Brick was the wrong choice for this audiobook. His narration is so sad to listen to, its as if he is reading the phone book. He has no detail for voices and that makes everyone sound the same. When I listen to audio book I would like to be ENTERTAINED!!!

    The president of the United States vanishes from the White House. A top-secret prototype stealth fighter is destroyed during a test flight. Witnesses on the ground say that it was shot down by a craft that immediately vanished at impossible speeds. All over the world, reports of UFOs are increasing at an alarming rate. And in a remote fossil dig in China dinosaur hunters have found something that is definitely not of this earth.

    By the 3rd Joe Ledger book I felt Maberry was loosing a bit of steam....but he has redeemed himself with Extinction Machine. Great action and the story moves along quickly. Does not get bogged down in Joe feeling sorry for himself. That's what had turned me off from the last few books. Ray Porter is great yet again!!

    Former disgraced Delta Force commander Kolt "Racer" Raynor has earned his way back into The Unit after redeeming himself during an explosive operation at a black site in Pakistan. But he is about to face his deadliest challenge yet. The most wanted man in the world, American al Qaeda commander Daoud al Amriki, and his handpicked team of terrorist operatives, have acquired stores of Russian-built, shoulder-fired surface-to-air missiles (SAM's) from ex-Libyan spies in Cairo.

    “Tier One Wild” is a page-turner. I found it really exciting. Fury’s second work of fiction again follows Kolt "Racer" Raynor as he tries not to be his old arrogant self. It describes the team work that the "Delta Operators" have to use in order to get the job done. Great job by Ari Fliakos.

    When SEAL Team Six killed Osama bin Laden, they pulled a treasure trove of intelligence on planned attacks on U.S. soil. Ayman al-Zawahiri, al Qaeda's new leader, is activating his most trusted (and deadliest) terrorists to carry out his newest plot: to detonate a bomb inside one of the 64 commercial nuclear power plants in the U.S. in an attack 10 times worse than 9/11, causing radiological fallout that would kill hundreds of thousands of innocent Americans.

    FULL ASSAULT MODE is the third in the Kolt Raynor series and it is a fast paced, exciting ride, as one would expect of a tale about Delta Force and terrorism. The book builds up the team relationship within Delta before having our hero, Major “Racer” Raynor getting in trouble with his direct superior officer when Raynor disobeys an order but manages to complete a dangerous mission. It then takes Raynor down a rode that he would never expect........!!!

    In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next.

    This book does not have Mitch Rapp but all the other folks we have came to love in Flynn's world are here. Great story and it sort of intertwines into a few other books. Give it a try.


    I place a lot of stock in the narrator of each book I listen to. The narrator can make or break a bad/good story. The reviews I've read had me scared to even attempt this one. After listening to each book read by George Guidall I've came back to each read by Nick Sullivan so I can finish the complete series.
    Well......Nick Sullivan takes a little getting used to after listening to George for so many hours but Nick Sullivan does an excellent job.
    So if you are an avid Vince Flynn fan don't let all the misanthrope get to you.

    John Perry did two things on his 75th birthday. First, he visited his wife's grave. Then he joined the army. The good news is that humanity finally made it into interstellar space. The bad news is that planets fit to live on are scarce - and alien races willing to fight us for them are common. So, we fight, to defend Earth and to stake our own claim to planetary real estate. Far from Earth, the war has been going on for decades: brutal, bloody, unyielding.

    Story

    The book started a little slow but picked up quickly, and I was totally engrossed for the first few chapters. Then suddenly, it became a chore to listen to. The descriptions of the aliens was a total turn off. Some were described as a cross between a bear/giant flying squirrel and deer like. Not what I would imagine alien species would resemble. I lost confidence in the book at that point, and almost stopped listening. But the ending saved from total disaster.

    The narrator does a good job in distinguishing each characters but he wasn't excellent.

    What a great tale! This is a delightfully quirky sci fi, Hollywood meets First Contact. Suits my mood. Suits my sensibility. We've got the up and coming agent with a heart of gold; his smart, bossy assistant; the beautiful, dim-bulb starlet who wants to be taken seriously; the sleazy, tabloid reporter who stops at nothing; the alien in need of an acceptable image.
    Great characters and they each are well developed.

    Will Wheaton doesn't do many voices for each different characters but each is well defined so it's not a problem following.

    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    Mitch Rapp gets caught in the crossfire of politics, doesn't trust his closest allies. So now Mitch must do what he does best.......!!!

    I miss George Guidall but Nick Sullivan does a fine job. I've found that if it's a great story it sometimes does not matter who narrates.
