Publisher's Summary

No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations.

But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful...Someone willing to capture, torture, an kill anyone to get it. Even the people Jonathan loves most...

    "Narrator doesn't work"

    Luckily I had listened to later books with "Scorpion " & "Boxers", they were wonderfully done by another narrator. If this were my first I probably would have stopped listening.
    His voice doesn't fit the characters in the least & changes little. He is more fit for children's books or romances possibly. Not warriors 😜

    "Did not like Narrator"
    What would have made No Mercy better?

    Another Narrator, Could not listen to this voice. So I don't know if it was a good book or not.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    A book narratorated by Stevie Ray Dallimore or Christina Traistor.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Jeremy Gage’s performances?

    NO!

    "This narrator is awful"

    So far, this is going in my "unable to finish" file. The narrator gives one of the worst performances I've ever heard. The story starts out pretty good, but I can't stand listening to this guy any longer.

    "a British narrator?"

    Why would you have a story about an all American, highly trained, retired special ops tough guy narrated by someone w/ a British accent? The narration was high quality but it just doesn't fit characters from America's Heartlands. The sorry was good and the characters were too but it was akin to having a Texan narrate a James Bond story. I wish I had read it instead of listened. My advice...make sure when you listen to the sample that you understand where the story takes place. I will read more Gilstrap but will be more careful when selecting.

    "Great story! Fast-paced ride with the good guys"

    I almost didn't get this book because of the mediocre reviews and complaints about narration. This is my first John Gilstrap book, and I sympathize with listeners who have listened previously and accustomed this character with a different narrator, always tricky. As a new listener however, I thought the narration was just great and fitting for someone who had inherited a ton of family money and has such outrageous and dangerous adventures and therefore fitting. If you're looking for a book that is fun, not too predictable, with a satisfying ending, and good guys to root for, this is it. A solid 4 star listen.

    "Time and money well spent."

    I am on my second round of listening to this series and they are just as wonderful the second time around. The action is non-stop but somehow Mr. Gilstrap finds a way to weave in some pretty thoughtful insights. These books stand shoulder to shoulder with those of Mark Greaney, Marc Cameron, Andrew Peterson, Alex Berenson, Lee Child and Vince Flynn.

    "Engrossing Tale, Terrible Narrator"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Any one who enjoys a good murder mystery should enjoy the plot but the unsuitable style of the narrator makes it hard to follow, much less appreciate. Only curiosity about the outcome kept me from cutting out well before the end.


    What character would you cut from No Mercy?

    The narrator?

    "Excellent"

    This writer is new to me. I have stored the complete series in my wishlist and will enjoy them. Keeps me in mind of Jack Reacher which for me is excellent writing

    Story
    "Not what I had expected"
    Would you try another book from John Gilstrap and/or Jeremy Gage?

    I was very excited to listen to this book after listening to Nathan's Run by John Gilstrap. I loved that story as well as the narrator. I assumed that this book would be more of the same but I was so disappointed. I am not quite finished with it and I don't even want to continue. I find the story kind of confusing but the worst part is the narration. The narrator's voice is at times too low or soft (can't tell which) but it makes it difficult to follow. I will never listen to another of this narrator's books again. I will probably try another book by the same author but hopefully someone else is reading it.


    Would you ever listen to anything by John Gilstrap again?

    yes as on long someone else is narrating.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Completely took away my listening pleasure.

    Story
    "An Average Spy/Commando Novel"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No not really. I tend to recommend books I give 5 stars to. Too much in this novel was 'over the top' and totally unbelievable - fantasy. It was an enjoyable ride but not stellar nor something I would go out of my way to recommend to a friend. Yet, it was enjoyable enough to download the second book in the series.


    How could the performance have been better?

    Need different narator/performer. John Gilstrap is just the wrong voice for this type of novel. He made it feel old - like something that was writen in the 60s or 70s yet the technology and events were current.


    Any additional comments?

    It is not a bad novel but it isn't a great one either - it is average.
