Noah Wolf is one of the world's most deadly assassins, completely devoid of emotion and conscience. These factors, which others would consider to be handicaps, allow him to evaluate situations instantly, and from a purely logical standpoint. His decisions and actions are never tainted by emotion or feelings, which frees him from any risk of fear or guilt.
When Team Camelot is handed an unusual mission to rescue the abducted daughter of a foreign president, Noah and the rest go into it with confidence, and are quickly successful. Back home, they are ready to celebrate, but something doesn't feel right. The mission was too easy, and there are indicators that someone may have discovered who they are and tracked them back to Neverland. Noah's house is entered while the team is away, and he is unable to shake the feeling that the mission was nothing but a ruse to expose E & E.
It doesn't take long for him to decide that they must return to the field, their new mission to track down a Russian counterpart of their own Allison Peterson. Nicolaich Andropov has marked Noah for termination, so Noah decides to use himself as bait to draw the man into a trap. Unfortunately, Andropov is known as a ghost, a man whose appearance is unknown, able to move in absolute secrecy and remain several steps ahead of any who pursue him. When Noah fails to recognize this fact, Sarah becomes a hostage and pawn in a battle to the death. There's only one tiny chance to save her, but it will mean Noah must go unarmed and alone to meet his nemesis. The game is on, with his own life and Sarah's as the prize.

Any other David Archer book. He has a very recognizable style.
Really good storyline, well thought out plot involving a staged kidnapping and rescue that goes s little to easy. That's because the instigator planned it that way to locate and eliminate Noah and his team. When Noah's girlfriend is kidnapped though, the man who has no feelings has something he can't name! Guess there's some humanity still in there after all. The end will confirm this as well.
This is perfect for people who are opposed to cursing because I could probably count on one hand how many curse words were used in the entire book.
Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I love espionage, legal, and detective thrillers but listen to most genres. Very frequent reviews. No plot spoilers! Please excuse my typos!
Noah Wolf Book 2, Lone Wolf, is even better than Code Name: Camelot. This espionage thriller is as good as any of the genre. Noah Wolf, the protagonist, is a man without fear or emotion due to some events during his childhood, but the emotion part seems to be cracking at least as it relates to the female member of his Team Camelot. The team is charged with eliminating and eradicating enemies of the US. Archer does a great job of developing his characters. Adam Verner does a excellent job of narration.
This book has my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION. Also, consider listening to the Sam Prichard series by the same author. David Archer has established himself in the top tier of suspense and espionage thriller authors.
