Mark Sullivan has created a propulsive, compelling new thriller. Rogue, is one part Bourne Identity and one part Mission: Impossible, but listeners will also love the nod to Hitchcock’s It Takes a Thief. 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. But when a complicated, high profile jewel heist goes wrong, Monarch is led into a carefully woven trap designed to force him to complete the very same mission he walked away from years ago. It will take all of his skills (as well as those of the team he burned) and all of his cunning, if Monarch is to thwart the violent and deadly goals of the very powerful cabal who will do whatever it takes to bring the very dangerous "Green Fields" technology under their control.

"A true juggernaut of a thriller, pure adrenaline in print. With the creation of Robin Monarch, Sullivan has crafted a Jason Bourne for the new millennium." (James Rollins)
Loved Robyn Monarch
The End >> Very fitting !
No but only because its not possible
1st Mark Sullivan book and really looking forward to the following series ! As you can see I am a man of few words .
Retired 35 year policeman from So CA, relocated with my wife to South Carolina with "Toby" our cat. I listen to two books a week
Story was very good at the start then it went on and on and ........
BUT, I did enjoy it after taking long breaks and clearing my mind from time to time.
I am a fictional reader. I like strong female characters that's don't require a romance story line.
story line was good. sometimes, with spy thrillers there are too many characters to keep track of especially if it is international but not here. I thought the different accents were done very well.
would I get another book following these characters? maybe but I'll probably not rush.
The story has a very likable and empathic main character. Unfortunately all his current problems seem far less relatable then his past and the listener does not empathize with his predicament.
the idea that the CIA would need the skills of someone like the main character to track down such a common-place doomsday item and then have to trick him in to stealing it, is really a huge stretch. Ive seen this before in stories with great charachter developement. The author has a great character but nothing for him to do so he throws something together. Let him infiltrate ISIS like other spy so far this year.
The Narator was very good in Star Wars with sound effects and no foreign accents. He should stick to stories like Dark Lord Rising
Tell us about yourself!
Kinda slow but had a good ending
I wasn't expecting that ending. Out of no where. GREAT !!
Driving long miles across Wyoming can be soooo boring , but ever since I founds Audible my wife and I love to travel !
Listened to every book in the series and they all have excitement and are hard to stop listening to. Great!
Say something about yourself!
A fast paced story. Next in series has better reviews than this one. I'm looking forward to it. It's in my wish list.
This book has the feel of one written by the numbers. Even so, it is well done. Another way to say it would be, the author is not working to create great literature. He is working to be commercial and entertaining. With that, he succeeds. I enjoyed the story. It was not my favorite, but it was pleasant. If you enjoy stories built around intrigue, action, CIA shenanigans and international settings, you will enjoy this. I am not in a hurry to do so, but I am sure I will purchase more books in this series.
