Publisher's Summary

Everything is for sale, at some price.

But what does it cost - to buy a country?

One wily Russian general is about to find out.

The phone rings and the offer is made, leaving you only seconds to decide. Betray your country, or watch your family drop dead before your eyes.

After the Iron Curtain's collapse, Russia appears to be finished as a superpower. But KGB general Vasily Karpov is secretly working to restore Russia's status by forcing Americans into traitorous acts of espionage and sabotage, with the aid of a new secret weapon. Meanwhile, his biggest target is within Russia, where Karpov is plotting to capture the Kremlin for himself.

Former US soldier and spy Alex Ferris becomes the first to fathom Karpov's grand plans. Racing from San Francisco to Siberia, Alex must elude ambushes, assassins, and death from exposure as he wages a one-man war against a growing global threat and the resurgence of the Soviets.

Revised edition: This edition of Coercion includes editorial revisions.

    "Excellent Tigner espionage thriller!"
    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    Dick Hill as always gave an excellent performance. He along with Scott Brick and Joe Barrett is one of my favorite narrators.


    Any additional comments?

    This is a really good espionage mystery thriller. The action is nonstop and begins on page one. The protagonist Alex Ferris's twin brother is murdered in his home but it is made to look like a suicide. Of course Alex does not believe this is the case and the race is on to find out who could have done this and why. And why are people Alex knows working to get him out of the way and threatening his life as well? Who Is influencing and how are they convincing normal everyday people to perform acts they are unlikely to candidates to carry out? The investigation takes Alex to Russia where his roots are buried and where he finds out secrets of his life that he probably didn't want to know.
    My only complaint about Tom Tigner's books is that they are all stand alone novels. The characters he creates could easily become a series of books and I often find myself thinking about possible future books when ever I finish one of his books.
    HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

    "This must become a movie!"
    What made the experience of listening to Coercion the most enjoyable?

    Coercion is chock full of emotions, all of which make your pulse pound in one way or another. You empathize with the characters, sharing their joy, pain, and fear. I found myself wondering what I'd do, were I the victim of Coercion (which seemed very plausible to me.) Tigner also weaves playfulness into the narrative to keep the tension off overload. Very well done!


    What other book might you compare Coercion to and why?

    There's an outstanding scene in Coercion that I'll never forget. It involves a chase through the Siberian wilderness in the dead of winter. Reminded me of Louis Lamore's Last of the Breed. Tigner really shines as a master storyteller in that sequence.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    This book is fraught with emotion, and Mr. Hill really makes you feel it.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes, the climactic comeuppance scenes for the various subplots were superb -- but I don't want to give anything away.


    Any additional comments?

    So many twists and turns -- just like the history of the Cold War. Although this is a period piece, with all that Putin is up to, Coercion feels like it's out of today's headlines. I continue to be a Tigner fan.

    "Tigner does it again!"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Coercion to be better than the print version?

    I love audiobooks, and consider Dick Hill to be at the top of that game. It was through him that I found Tim Tigner in the first place, and I'm so glad that I did. I've devoured all of his novels.

    I can't compare the audio to the print version, as I haven't read it, but it's fantastic.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coercion?

    I like the way Tigner leaves cliff hangers at the end of his chapters. One that will always stick with me comes from an early chapter, which ends something like "Go to Georgi's room." I was so there in that moment.

    The Siberian chase scene was also phenomenal.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Of course I liked Alex, the protagonist. But Tigner does a good job of making the bad guys human too. And of course Hill brings them to life if brilliant color.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I practically did. Just bought it yesterday. It kept me up late, and I turned it on first thing this morning.


    Any additional comments?

    As I do with Vince Flynn (now Kyle Mills) and Lee Child and a few others, I'm always looking forward to Tim Tigner's next.

    "Superb espionage thriller!"

    Author Tim Tigner and narrator Dick Hill combine to make Coercion, which is set in 1990, a wonderful espionage thriller audiobook. Highly recommended!

    "Another Unputdownable Thriller by Tim Tigner"
    What made the experience of listening to Coercion the most enjoyable?

    The great plot and the excellent narration


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Life


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes, and I almost did


    Any additional comments?

    Coercion is a new unputdownable thriller by very talented author Tim Tigner. The book was just released in audio format, after a revised print edition was released last summer and Mr. Tigner continues his collaboration with award-winning narrator Dick Hill. Since I am a big audiobook fan and Dick is one of my favourite narrators of all times and now he is somewhat retired, I always treasure any new occasion in which I can enjoy his brilliant performances.

    The story of Coercion follows Alex Ferris, a former US Army soldier and ex spy as he discovers and after that tries to stop a plot by KGB General Vasily Karpov who wants to bring Mother Russia to its former power by forcing US citizens to betray their country… You’ll be in for a treat as the action is non-stop, the characters are very well developed and the idea behind it all is fantastic and at the same time, terrifying. There were lots of plot twists, a great chase scene through the Siberian wilderness and it even ends with a bang…

    I started listening to Coercion in the evening, stopped it late in the night and picked it right up when I popped my eyes open in the early hours of the next day. Tim Tigner is one of those rare writers that will always surprise you with his stories. You think that you know what will happen? Wrong! You think you know who’s who and what’s what? Wrong! He always delivers a unique experience, stories driven by original plots and you will never forget one of his main characters.

    As I said above, the audiobook version of Coercion is performed by the great Dick Hill. He does a fantastic job with giving life to all the characters by using different voices and accents and by keeping the action going at breakneck speeds, as it was intended in the first place by the book’s creator. Dick‘s narration also makes it very easy for the listener to identify each of the characters.

    Coercion is a great thriller by an always improving writer and the audio version is better than the print one because it is brought to life by one of the best narrators in the Audiobook Industry. Tim Tigner‘s writing reminds me of Tom Clancy and Robert Ludlum. they being two of my favourites authors of all times…

    "Great story well written and we'll performed."

    Dick Hill will always be the voice of Jack Reacher for me but I enjoyed his narration here as well. Tigner did his usual superb job.

    If you could sum up Coercion in three words, what would they be?

    Engage Your Brain!


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Coercion?

    When we learned the details surrounding the death of Alex' brother.


    What about Dick Hill’s performance did you like?

    He is one of a kind and always on his "A" game.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Hold on tightly!

    "Good Story, forgettable reader"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend the print version. Would not recommend the audio based on the reader.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Dick Hill sounds as though he is out of breath. The characters he creates sound exactly the same in every book he narrates.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I could have easily listened to the story all the way through, but Dick Hill stops me in my tracks.


    Any additional comments?

    Stay away from Dick Hill's narrations.
