North Korea has achieved a breakthrough with nuclear warheads and is about to arm their strategic missiles - weapons that could set the world ablaze. The Echo Six unit commander, Abe Talley, is ordered to take his men across the 38th Parallel. Their mission is to locate and destroy the nukes, as well as their creators. They must enter the heart of the most secretive, repressive, and brutal nation on Earth - and somehow find a way back.
The men of Echo Six, the elite NATO Special Forces unit, are no strangers to the shadowy world of behind-the-lines missions. But this one is different. Some say it is even a suicide mission. The action is bloody and explosive, and the unit is constantly savaged by an enemy that is both vicious and overwhelming. Yet the bloody expedition is not the only challenge they have to face. Treachery and betrayal dog their footsteps at every turn.
This is a truly thrilling story of vicious and cruel fighting, mixed with the politics of deceit and betrayal. A story that is full of explosive twists and turns, Echo Six: Black Ops 3 is a worthy, action-packed sequel to the best-selling Echo Six: Black Ops series.

a real narrator
possible with a better narrator
sounds like ten year old reading a book
Overall, I enjoy this series. The female main character in the first book was intelligent, smart, and didn't jump into bed with the main male character until they formed a relationship. She disappeared in the second book, along with Meyers ability to write about intelligent females. In this book, the female is suppose to be an expert in nuclear weapons, yet whines about every operational detail. Regardless of her childish attitude, the main character falls hard for her without any real relationship formed beyond sex. I really enjoy the friendships between the men in the group. It is very believable, the female....not so much.
The narrator ( reader ) is very bad. Story holds up but the narration is very weak! The story would be more enjoyable if the narration would have been from a professional and not a simple reader.
Try to find someone who can make the story interesting !
Although it is only one person reading, one can get a sense of what each character was about by the tone of the speaker.
All of the characters had interesting characteristics that i could not pick one.
From start to finish of this book it was very detailed and gave the picture of what it would be like to be in those situations in real life so i think the book overall was great.
Great book and I would definitly recommed it to other people.
The most enjoyable part of this audiobook was knowing that the narration was by Tim Welch.
Yes, the plot did keep me interested because I like history. I The narration set the image in my head and I was able to imagine their mission to destroy the nukes along with the journey it came with.
I liked the main character Abe. He was the unit commander that was volunteered to take his men on the mission.
It was somewhat humorous, the voices for each character made me imagine all sorts of people.
Good work Mr. Welch!! I enjoyed listening to your narration!
Dramatic, Captivating, Rollercoaster
I like how knowledgeable the author is on current events. He did a great job tying in the story with current events. Meyers' knowledge really adds to the details and action of the story. I liked the details in this story. Every small detail is important because it makes the overall plot worthwhile.
Welch's voice made me really feel like I was there experiencing the action myself. Welch makes the story believable. He has a very bold and dramatic voice which made me feel encompassed when listening. Also, Welch did a good job with his accents and impersonating Abraham and other army members.
It made me more interested than I am in current events and military operations. I do not really like books of this genre but the way the story was told and narrated made it exciting. The sequence of the book and how things played out kept me interested and wanting to keep going.
One thing I would change is the abbreviations of the weapons because I am not too familiar with military operations and things like that. There was a lot of terminology I did not know. On the other side of that, as a reader, I can always look up these types of things to better my knowledge and understand the book better.
I like the action filled moments, like the fighting scene in the beginning with Echo Six in the enemy camp. I see a mix between American sniper and lone survivor type action scene in my head while listening.
I liked how each character was described physically in such detail. It really gave you a picture inside of your head of what this group, Echo Six may look and act like.
Pronunciation of words I wouldn't understand. More exciting then reading it myself because of emotion in Tim Welch's voice.
Live to tell the story
I like the idea of them going on such a secret mission in North Korea. Thrilling concept in such an oppressive nation.
