There are men among us who lead lives of quiet desperation sitting on the sidelines watching their lives speed by. There are others who are adventurers, fearless and seek danger, powerful athletes, intellectuals, soldiers, and statesmen. Then there are the men that live moment to moment, in the shadows, moving silently, striking, and melting back into the night. Men that are incapable of feeling remorse, guilt, or contrition. These are the men best qualified to solicit when a needed service is required and a final notice given. They answer only to those that pay the asking price, and to men in power that need their services for political gain or enrichment.
Damian Wolf is one of those men, not by choice, but by deception. He is framed for the brutal murder of his new bride, sentenced to death. After six months on death row, he is offered freedom in return for performing dark work for an obscure government agency. If he agrees, then he will not only gain his freedom, but will be told who the real killer is...eventually.
Panama Takedown is the first in the Damian Wolf , Assassin, Short Novel Series. Wolf is in Panama waiting for the details of his next assignment. When his handler contacts him, he is immediately distrustful and suspicious of the plan. He sees it as a suicide mission with no way out. Within hours, bodies start to pile up, a double-cross and betrayal are tripped up, and a final showdown that leaves the target alive and Wolf on the run.

A definite yes! I loved the story, the cadence, LOVED the narrator Mike Dennis' interpretation of all the characters. The story is written really well--short sentences, quick descriptions, just enough explanation and details and then on to the action.
It did! Lots of twists and turns but just the right balance of dialogue and non-dialogue to keep me entertained and not lost in the story.
I have istened to several of his performances. This one was by far his best. He had multiple accents and a nice rythmn to his speaking. He sounds like Dick Hill who is one of my favorite narrators but IMHO Mike Dennis is better at multiple accents.
I loved the ending, the way "woof" figures out who kikks his wife and deternines his future.
Mike Dennis is the next knock-out narrator!
This is a great action story to listen to while walking, exercising and driving. I wish it was longer!
The way the Hotel Simpatico is described made me feel like I was there - Dirty feet.
Mike Dennis did a wonderful job enhancing the visualization the story as read.
Thrillers are always exciting and enjoyable. In Panama Takedown we meet a new character that is as tough as they get. I would put him up against any of the current crop of tough guys A thriller from beginnig to end.
