    The year is 2018 - a highly volatile nuclear world. Israel has obliterated the deep underground nuclear weapons facility built by Iran. The United States has destroyed the nuclear facility of a defiant North Korea. The Russians have upped the stakes in the latest world power-play - cyber warfare - to reduce the US to helplessness: a three-strike missile attack on the National Security Agency at Fort Mead, Maryland, while simultaneously jamming the top-secret electronic access key to America’s nuclear launch system.

    Where does Power Play rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The story was really good, just as I had susptected it would be. Unfortunately the narrator challenged me to stay in the story. It was simply things, pronuciations, accents, etc that bothered me. Especially pronuciations. Seriously, if you're going to read a book, you had better understand what you're saying because I sincerely believe that the author did.

    Story

    I was rather disappointed in this book. It was not up to the same calibre as Brad Thor's others and seemed lost at times. I really did not like the narrator for this one, confusing a French Canadian with and American from the Dakotas or western Wisconsin. Bacis things like that take a person out of a story and due to the amount of time this character spent in the book, it significantly annoyed me as a Canadian.

    I think that my headline says it all. I'd all but given up on Dale Brown, but A Time For Patriots has brought back my faith in him. Worth a read or a listen, enjoyable story.

    When two of his American employees were held hostage in a heavily guarded prison fortress in Iran, one man took matters into his own hands: American businessman H. Ross Perot. His team consisted of a group of volunteers from the executive ranks of his corporation, hand-picked and trained by a retired Green Beret officer. To free the imprisoned Americans, they would face incalculable odds on a mission that only true heroes would have dared.

    Story

    This was a very interesting story that was RUINED by multiple narrators. If they had used multiple people for individual characters that would have been fine, but there were 5 or 6 different narrators used throughout and they would change at odd times.

    Read the book.

    In the near future, U.S. forces are completing their final withdrawal from bases in the Philippines. The navy of the People's Republic of China lays claim to the Spratly Islands, decimating a Philippine drilling platform when its occupants refuse to knuckle under.

    George says: "B2 Fantastic"
    "Don't buy this! Buy the unabridged instead"
    Overall

    This is probably a great book in the unabridged format, but absolutely none of that is eveident here. Whoever edited this cannot have actually listened to the final product, it is so jarring, each time a new section comes on, I had to take a couple of minutes and try to infer what had happened. This was even the case with major plot points. Avoid this! Buy the unabridged instead.
