Really liked this book.
There is non stop action, drama and suspense. I was hooked from the first page. The story moves along at a fast pace because there is so much going on. I would absolutely recommend this book to anyone who likes a really good non stop adrenaline suspense filled thriller.
Gabriel ( Jacob August) an assassin for hire is a former CIA operative. After an attack on his family and the murder of his wife, Gabriel is out for revenge. Trying to keep his enemies away from his young son Mikey he entrusts the care of Mikey to his friend Forsyth. As Gabriel is trying to exact his revenge on those who deserve it, and get back to his , he becomes the hunted. Forsyth and Mikey find themselves being hunted as well. Yes, there is a lot of violence in the book but in each situation it is deserved. The name of the book is Body Count so violence should be expected.
I did not realize this was the 3rd book in the series until I started listening to it. You should probably listen to the first 2 in the series before listening to this one, but personally I don't think it's a must. It was pretty easy to get caught up with what is going on in the story. The main reason I would say to listen to the previous books is that if they are as good as this book it would be worth your time, as well as fill in some detail.
S.W. Salzman did a good job with the narration of this story. His female voices could use a little work. There is not a lot of difference in the male voices except when there is an accent but how many different male voices can you really do when most of the cast is male. Nice even pace and clear pronunciation. A few times the short pauses between characters were a little off. Overall it was a good job. He has a nice deep voice that fits the story and the badass that is the main character. It would really be off putting if you had an assassin with a high pitched voice.
Mike Evens is a new author to me and I will be putting his other books on my list of books to listen to as well as going back and listening to the 2 previous books in this series.

The literal boy count of enemies in Gabriels way.
Every time the other characters or Gabriel will explain that he doesn't deliver threats but promises and when they persist they see the the devil come for them. He goes after them so good.
The escape after he beats up and kills the wife and child beater.
Not necessarily an extreme reaction but I did love the revenge aspect of why he does the things he does.
This was a great and engaging book. The author Mike Evans did a very good job with the violence content and the feel for the characters. Salzman did an amazing job narrating the story and the different voices was an extra nice touch.

This book is supposed to be #3 in a series. I am guessing you probably need to listen to the first two for this to make sense. There is a lot of action, and suspense.
The narration was well done. The characters were excellently portrayed.
Loving life on the Snake River!
I was unable to get through the first chapter of this audible book. When every 5th or so word is fuck it shows to me that there is little literary talent involved. The word is so often as to be distracting. I am not a prude by any means, but I just could not continue with this
This book was given to me at no charge for an honest review.
This book is #3 in a series. I need to listen to the first two for this to make sense and would have understand and grasp the flow of the story. There is a lot of action, and suspense.
"It is the business of the times to change...and the business of gentlemen to change with them." ~Amor Towles in "Rules of Civility"
A man seeks revenge for the death of his wife and, in case he does not survive it, ensures his young son will have a stellar education and healthy bank account. The rest of the story is packed with the protagonist, Gabriel, pursuing bad guys and trying not to hurt those around him too much. The premise is fantastic and the story has great potential, especially for action lovers. The intended messages are strong. The delivery, not so much because the storyline isn't knitted together well and the dialogue lacks… verity. IMHO, most of it does not ring true. For example, the dialogue between vindictive Gabriel and the nice guy he assigns to take care of the son is stilted and unbelievable. On the other hand, stilted works well when Gabriel converses with the bad guys. The action has natural ebbs and flows; the dialogue does not.
The narrator probably was the worse part of the equation. His effort is apparent, as is his desire to do a good job. Readers want consistent articulation; distinct-sounding characters (in this story, most of them sound alike); and polish.
