Publisher's Summary

After witnessing the murder-suicide of his parents as a child, Noah Wolf suffers from a form of PTSD that has left him without emotion, without a conscience, and without the ability to function as a normal human being. With the help of childhood friends, he learns to watch others around him and mimic their behaviors, in order to conceal the fact that his mind operates more like a computer that he has spent years programming. That program is what allows Noah to pass himself off as normal, by establishing parameters of right and wrong that are completely inviolable to him.

As a young adult, Noah finds structure in the U.S. Army, and becomes an excellent and exemplary soldier, but when his self-imposed programming is put to the test by the murderous acts of the superior officer, Noah finds himself quickly made expendable, charged with crimes he did not commit and facing the possibility of execution. Without any reasonable hope for a reprieve, Noah's logic-based mind accepts his fate.

Sometimes, though, things are not all as they seem to be, and Noah is offered one chance to save himself. It was his disability, his lack of emotion, that made him the soldier he had become. Now, an ultra-secret organization known as E&E wants Noah's talents, offering him a chance to survive as the most deadly assassin the world has ever known.

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

    "Great fun! "Mission Impossible' style thriller"

    Code Name: Camelot is an absolute must listen espionage thriller. Noah Wolf is a man without human feelings who has been saved from a death sentence he received by court martial. He was innocent but a member of Congress wanted him dead. The woman who saved him is the leader of a US assassination agency which is so secret that only the US president is aware of it. Noah Wolf is assigned a 3 person team to help him. The name of the team is Camelot. Noah Wolf does not have human feelings but he understands them in him coldly logical way.

    For those that liked the Sam Prichard series by David Archer (I reviewed 7 of the 8 audiobooks in the wonderful series here at Audible)) the Noah Wolf series is even better. The Kindle ebook version of Code Name:Camelot was released in January while the audiobook version was released on May 4. I could not wait so I had to read the Kindle version when it was released. The audiobook does not disappoint. Narration is very, very good.

    I very strongly recommend this fun espionage thriller. David Archer demonstrates that a great espionage thriller can be written without even a single case of foul language. That must be a first! (I have no objection whatever to foul language.)

    Story
    "Great premise - execution needs work."

    The premise of the story is excellent. However, very little action: one mission. The action should have began in the first Act if you divide into 3 acts. Instead, it was at the end of a second act. Dialogue was repetitive, did not move the story along, was not how these characters would talk. Not witty, not clever. Needs a good story and dialogue editor. I hope the series continues with major revisions. Reading Mark Greaney, Robert Crais, Lee Child and others for story pacing and dialogue would help. Also, bad politician introduced at the start was never dealt with again. The old adage, "if you introduce a gun in the first act, you better use it by the third," was violated.

    Any additional comments?

    Where is the action, the suspense, the thrill?!


    SPOILERS... SPOILERS...

    All they do is eat, be pissed at the main character, talk, eat some more, drink ,small worthless fight (team members, my D**K is bigger than yours), talk some more, mc sleeps with blonde chic (team member), eat some more, talk...

    DEFINITELY, not the action pack thriller I was expecting. Narrator is the only reason I finished listening to this.

    "Family Friendly Assassin"
    Any additional comments?

    For anyone who has ever listened to Archer's Sam Pritchard novels you can appreciate the lack of foul language. For everyone else this book actually does contain some controversial scenes that quite surprised me for this author. The theme is a good one with the protagonist (Noah Wolf) posessong characteristics from many popular books out there today. This kind of reminds me a little of Brad Taylor's Logan/Cahill duo with a few exceptions that I can't mention without spoiling. I found the book to be a very light and fast paced, however I did think it lacked in authenticity. Again, this is fiction and with that being said the book did provide me with it's intended purpose, hours of entertainment. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

    "Not much there."

    Not one of my favorites. No twists or turns. Little action. Very predictable. No depth.

    "Almost 4 stars.."
    Any additional comments?

    Noah was an unusual hero! He had no feelings, no emotions, no nothing that made him seem human. But you couldn’t help but like him. He was in the military and killed 3 or 4 of his fellow soldiers and was found guilty and sentenced to death. AND he was OK with that. It made perfect sense to him. Even though he didn’t “murder” them as he was accused of doing. I mean, he had his reasons (you’ll have to read the book to find out what those reasons were.)

    Anyway, the Dragon Lady (Allison) came to his rescue and he became part of a group called E&E (Elimination and Eradication.)

    My problem with this is where all these people came from: a hacker, a car thief, a kid that killed 7 people at once, when he was 16, a guy that decked his commanding officer, and yet, the language was just unreal. Da*n was used 7 times, sh*t was used 4 times and h*ll was used 5 times? That’s not how those kinds of people swear. If you’re going to be that unbelievably unreal you might as well use dang or durn or darn or heck or shoot. I like to read about fantastic stories that could happen but I like to read how real people talk, not like a religious person who wouldn’t say sh*t if they had a mouthful.

    Another thing that disturbs me is that you don’t know what anyone looks like, except the waitress that’s platinum blonde and 200 pounds. Really? No idea what Noah looks like or Allison or Moose or Neil or Sarah, but you want to say that about a server?

    This was a good story but it was kind of drawn out. I mean: He walked to his car, opened the door, slid in, put the key in, started the engine, and eased out into traffic. That was necessary? Just over and over again we had that kind of ridiculous description of what and how things were done.

    I think this book was mostly to introduce you to Noah and his team, and to go through his training, until the last 25% when they went out on a mission. I have bought another book by this author, The Grave Man, and I’m hoping it’s a little better than this one.

    There was not a thing sexy about this book. Noah pushed Sarah down on the bed then it was the next morning. And the swearing was just stupid.

    As to the narrator: He was alright. I think he laughed one time when the book called for it, and he might have sighed one time, too. Other than that there was not much emotion. He did the women’s voices OK but he made every man with a different voice, gruff (Moose,) mellow (Noah,) high pitched (Neil,) German accent (Daniel,) whatever was needed. So, there was that! He wasn’t horrible but he wasn’t great either.

    "not close to Mitch Rapp"

    it was a decent book, but not Mitch Rapp caliber, the writing was good the story was lacking the action craziness we expect for the book being billed as the Mitchell Rapp standards. The book was really anticlimactic, with very few actions sequences, a decent book but definitely not in the same league as Mitch Rapp books.

    "Disappointing"
    Would you try another book written by David Archer or narrated by Adam Verner?

    No probably not


    Has Code Name: Camelot put you off other books in this genre?

    No definitely not, I loved the last “Grey Man” (Mark Greaney) and “Victor” (Tom Wood) novels.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes the narration was ok.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Code Name: Camelot?

    I gave up halfway through this book and to be honest I would cut everything after the prologue.


    Any additional comments?

    I might go back and finish listening to this one day but I would have to be quite desperate as there are so many far more accomplished writers in the genre:

    Tom Wood
    Mark Greaney
    David Baldacci
    Lee Child
    Remington Kane
