Publisher's Summary

Torture. Ghost Detainees. And a massive cover-up that continues even today. Marooned in a Manila jail after a bar fight fatality, black ops soldier Ben Treven gets a visit from his former commander, Colonel Scott Horton, who explains the price of Ben's release: find and eliminate Daniel Larison, a rogue operator from Ben's unit who has stolen 92 torture tapes from the CIA and is using them to blackmail the U.S. government. But other players are after the tapes, too, and to find Larison, Ben will have to survive CIA hit teams, Blackwater mercenaries, and the long reach of the White House. He'll also have to find a way to handle Paula Lanier, a smart, sexy FBI agent who has her own reasons for wanting the tapes and is determined to get them before Ben does. With the stakes this high, everyone has an angle - everyone but Ben, who will have to find the right alliance if he wants to stay alive.

    "Excellent Series I hope Book 3 is going to be soon"
    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ben Treven is my favorite, but Hort runs a close second. He is so deviousl, you never know when he's being honest or plotting out some scheme. Great character. I also like how Ben constantly looks for Hort's praise even knowing what kind of person he is, almost as a father figure.


    Any additional comments?

    I REALLY like this series. It is important to listen to them in order as each one builds on the previous. I also really like Barry Eisler as a narrator. He does an excellent job.

    Story
    "Solid thriller with excellent tradecraft"

    Inside Out is the 2nd installment in the Ben Treven series, although Eisler has overlapped the main character, Ben Treven, within the larger Rain series. In this story, "enhanced" interrogation tapes have gone missing and become blackmail. Ben is called in to track them down. In addition to Ben, CIA and FBI as well as mercenaries are involved and the field gets rather crowded. Ben displays his physical and mental skills to crack the case wide open.

    The pacing is excellent with a good admixture of action and detective work. Ben encounters comparable rivals for the first time and must also deal with some troubling revelations about his work and how the world operates. There are sufficient plot twists to hold interest to the end.

    The narration is superb; all the more remarkable because the author himself is doing the reading. The tone and mood of each character and situation are accurately portrayed which adds to the listening enjoyment.

    "Very Good, Not Great"

    Thought that the book needed to be edited tighter than it was edited. Kind of kept pounding the same nail over and over in several spots. Hit it once or maybe twice to really make a point but then you gotta just move on otherwise it starts to drag on too much.

    Eisler is a pretty good narrator also. Not a top-notch professional but ever so much better than some authors that try to read their own work.

    "BLACK OPS"
    Would you consider the audio edition of Inside Out to be better than the print version?

    Pleasantly surprised with book 2 of this series. Several notches above book one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Ben as the main character of course along with the deception of FBI agent Paula Linear. Colonel Horton ties with both Ben & John Rain.


    Have you listened to any of Barry Eisler’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Author does a good job in this book. I have previously stated that Author should consider using multiple narrators in a few of his previous books.


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

    Had me listening in all spare moments. Great book, and story line.


    Any additional comments?

    Would enjoy seeing John Rain, and other characters incorporated with Ben's character.

    I have a strong preference for the SPOKEN, as opposed to the written word. Although a poor reader may detract from a book, a truly capable reader adds immeasurably to the enjoyment of a good book.

    "More than a little inconclusive"

    Eisler is as good a narrator as he is an author. I found the plot as intriguing as those of the John Rain series. Be prepared for some X-rated sexual descriptions. Not the kind of thing you'd want to share with Mom or Junior. I would have given it 5 stars, save for the blatant set-up for a sequel and the resulting, rather inconclusive ending. All in all, though, a fun audit if you don't mind some vivid descriptions of violence.

    "Loved the Book, Loved the Performance, Awesome!"

    Mr. Eisler's abilities as an author & narrator is a rare combination. Oh, there are others, but none have been half as good. I listen to 8-10 books a month. I can not wait for the next book in this series....I hope there is more in the works.

    "Re Inside Out/The Detachment"

    I understand The Detachment better now, unfortunately cannot redo my review. I highly recommend you read the John Rains s & the Ben Trven books in order. I didn't do that and while I have enjoyed all of them. I believe I would have appreciated the nuances and events better if I had read in proper sequence. This story was tense & makes us paranoid about government. But the relationships are the story. Excellent narration.
