Meet terrorism's worst enemy.
Robert Garcia was an unremarkable man, tapped out of a promising military career to become a death squad assassin for the CIA. Retirement was not in the cards for Robert, so he disappeared instead. After he comes out of the cold to answer the call to aid a fellow soldier facing a bum rap, he is thrust back into the spotlight when he is in the wrong place at the wrong time and kills a terrorist, thereby saving dozens of lives. He finds gainful employment in the slaughter of jihadists, which sparks an urban social media legend that Robert, a dangerous and unfeeling assassin, is a living paladin whose mission is to rid the earth of evil for the betterment of mankind. Social media gives him the name, "Paladine", and god help whoever gets between him and his next target.

I just enjoy hearing stories about what I sometimes wish was reality.
The main character, Robert Garcia. Although a few people have complained about the narration I thought Ken Solin did a fine job. Although his performance was a bit monotone, I kind of picture Paladine speaking or thinking in a monotone. He sees a situation, analyzes the various outcomes and takes action depending on which he sees as having the most positive conclusion.
This is the first book in this series but it will not be the last one I will listen to. I enjoyed it very much and am curious to see where this character will go. I can see quite a bit of potential as with Kenneth Eade's Brent Marks series. My only complaint is that I would like a longer book that is a little more fleshed out.

I initially read and reviewed the book, and feel, after listening to the audio version, that it's great both ways. The storyline is both current and fascinating to me. Robert Garcia will continue to be right up there with Brent Marks as my favorite characters so far. ☺
No, the story was ok the kind of stuff I like but there where some gabs in the story.
Not enough explanation given about what happen to get our hero where he was.
The Narration was stilted and at times whinny.
