    "Editing makes a difference"

    I liked the story and the characters but the editing made it hard to fully enjoy. I prefer audiobooks in which the chapters have a long pause at the end, as this book has. But, this was the first book I have ever listened to that made it very clear where the reader stopped for a break or the day and resumed and where re-takes were made and edited in. Both the volume and tone of the reader would change abruptly and annoyingly for either, OFTEN.

    I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!

    Story
    "Outstanding espionage thriller!"

    All Necessary force is Book 2 of ex Delta Force commander Brad Taylor's Pike Logan series. The series is now 7 novels and 5 novellas. This novel is a great espionage thriller dealing with fighting terrorists in Asia, the Middle East and the US. One Rough Man, Book 1, showed real promise, novella 1.5 fixed narration issues and added Jennifer Cahill as a lead character, and All Necessary Force delivers on the promise of Brad Taylor being a great espionage thriller author.

    Beginning with All Necessary Force the novels in the series use an unusual but very effective narration arrangement. The novel is written partially in third person with Henry Strozier narrating and partially in Pike Logan first person with Rich Orlow doing the narration. The narration is flawless.

    For those who like great espionage novels this novel and the Pike Logan series provide just that, and the series does so consistently. Very highly recommended.

    Story
    "A bit of a let down from the first book"
    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    I wanted to strangle Jennifer. Some of her reactions, given the situation and line of work, is completely off the mark. She trains for a year as an operative, and gets upset when too much violence is used on a terrorist? Seriously . . . While there are rules and ways to do things, she is just too emotional.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Ted Bell and Alex Hawk


    Would you be willing to try another one of Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performances?

    No - The original duo was much better.


    Was All Necessary Force worth the listening time?

    No

    "Great Story, Bad Narration."

    Really enjoyed the storyline, but the narration leaves a lot to be desired. George Guidall or Amanda Shultz would have done a much better job.

    "Getting better, definitely worth the listen."
    Any additional comments?

    This series has all the hope of being the closest thing to a fix for Mitch Rapp junkies. I have listened to all of the Jack Reacher, Dewey Andreas, and Scot Harvath books, and this has the best hope for being a great new series that is updated regularly. The early recordings are pieced together and there are plot holes, but they get cleaned up as the series progresses. This is definitely worth your time, and know that they get cleaner by the time you hit book 3-4.

    "Brad Taylor is the next Vince Flynn. "

    I picked up this book based on the reviews, and was not dissapointed. I am so glad this Brad can write, because i read one of Brad Thors books, amd it was pure crap. Pike is the real thing.
