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)
Give me water to swim and surf in. That with a glass of white wine and the sun. That's heaven.
Beguiling, exciting and suspense
The closest one I could compare it to would be "Private" due to the fact both were written with a turn......
I have not listened to any before, but I enjoyed this.
When the team went looking for their leader.
I never would have read this book had Audible not offered a sale on many of the first books in various series. Thanks Audible!! This book was a fun read and I really enjoyed the protagonist, Robin--especially his background and how he was able to change his life from the utter depravity of his youth. However, I only gave it 4 stars because it seems utterly improbable that a man (spy) who managed to reach the top of the spy chain in America would be so slow as to find the bad egg in their midst at the same time the whole nation/world did. Had he spent half the time doing research that Robin's teammate did in forty-five minutes he would have found the bad guy...and then that would have ended the story. I hope in the second book in the series the head of the CIA is just a little smarter! Nevertheless, I'm glad I read it.
This was an E-Ticket ride! A top listen. It's the kind of story if I were turning pages, I wouldn't be able to put down. (And I didn't.)
It seemed the tale was concluding successfully to a finish, then POW! we got carried off with another twist of the plot.
The narrator had great language skills and accents making the listen most believable.
The Sister. What a compassionate strong person!
I'm just downloading #2, Outlaw.
So many characters and yet the author manages to give you a feeling for each-- as does the narrator. And the story itself flowed. Never a time did I want to put the book down!
