Michael Valentine, veteran and former member of an elite private military company, has been recruited by the government to conduct a secret counter-terror operation in the Persian Gulf nation of Zubara. The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught. Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord. His team has to infiltrate the Zubaran terrorist network and pull off an impossible heist or his family will die. When Dead Six compromises his objective, Lorenzo has a new job: Find and kill Valentine. As allegiances are betrayed and the nation descends into a bloody civil war, Lorenzo and Valentine must face off. Two men. Two missions. Only one will win.

Men and maybe women who have an interest in guns and war. Sociopaths and maybe TV watchers might like it.
Only if they would try their hand at another topic.
I would never have read this far if it a print form.
I'm not enjoying any of the scenes very much.
I have read/listened to a few books by this author but the narration for this book was "jarring". I could not stand to listen until the end. Yes I always preview the narration before purchase, however this book had a different style of narration that I did not like.
I will not listen to books by this narrator again.
I love audio books for my commute. Especially nonfiction, but I can be talked into some fiction once in a while!
I really liked the book. The narration, however made it phenomenal. I will be downloading the next in the series as soon as I'm done with this review!
I loved the story and well maybe I'm just being picky but the performance stank. The voice actor kept slipping in and out of voice with the two main characters. And the accents he attempted were horrible. Apparently Mexicans, Portuguese, Arabs, and Frenchmen all sound like Russian gangsters. Then 20 something year old tech geeks, gay bad guys , an Asian women all sound alike too. It's too bad this is one of the few times I was actually hope by for a narrator switch between books. I guess I will either read the next book in the series or just abandon it, because I certainly will not be listening to it.
i liked the plot. but the reader has very unusual inflections and delivery for the material. distracting, ruined it for me.
liked both protagonists
Laughable drivel moving at half speed from a self-proclaimed 'Air Force Weapons Expert' who should take time off the shooting range to study writing.
The narration was good but unfortunately the protagonist appears to suffer from Tourette's and the screaming bits are jarring and unpleasant.
The book didn't have any supernatural stuff in it, which was a letdown after Larry correia's other books, but it was good anyhow!
I read the first bit about three months ago and gave up, I was too busy with other things to understand who was who and got confused. Now I started the book in a two hour stint and everything fell into place. From then on it's been fantastic, Correia's humourous and fast-paced style (without the special gifts this time), in a realistic thriller setting that grips you by the throat and doesn't let go. Brilliant. I'm always stingy with the 5 stars but this book deserves it.
"A Top Listen"
Top 3. An Excellent book.
Yes - extremely good book brought to life.
Get the sequel too. Brilliant.
