Publisher's Summary

To prevent a war in Asia - one that could quickly spread to the rest of the world - Paul Janson and Jessica Kincaid must learn the truth behind a young woman's murder....

Prominent US Senator James Wyckoff hires former government agents-turned-private security consultants Janson and Kincaid to locate his teenage son Gregory. Gregory's girlfriend Lynell has been found strangled in a Seoul hotel, and Gregory has fled the city to avoid being arrested for the crime. But Senator Wyckoff insists that his son is innocent, suggesting that Lynell, who was a translator, may have been murdered because of something she overheard at a recent international conference. And when Janson and Kincaid realize they're being hunted by an assassin, they suspect that this crime - and the cover-up - were orchestrated by a shadowy unit of the US State Department as part of a larger plot to provoke violence between North and South Korea.

    "Disappointing for this series"
    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    The previous narrator and previous author


    What was most disappointing about Douglas Corleone’s story?

    The new author changed the characters and wrote a disappointing story line.


    What didn’t you like about Kevin T. Collins’s performance?

    The narrator couldn't have been more boring, it was hard to distinguish between characters, and he dropped all accents from the previous stories.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment. The previous stories and narrator were great, and I couldn't wait to continue listening. I almost dropped this story 3 times because it was so bad.

    "Love the Janson books not this one"

    Wow I'll never buy a book read by this narrator again, so frenetic and over done. Relax a little man. Very disappointed with this audio book.

    "Bad narrator"
    What made the experience of listening to Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janson Equation the most enjoyable?

    I enjoyed the story and have read all the Janson books. I believe this is the weakest one however that could be because of the narrator.

    "Excellent story for those able to suspend disbelief"

    I've very much enjoyed the initial Paul Janson story and a later Janson novel. I found the narrator's diction in this story irritatingly staged. In the end, I was glad to have listened to the book, but I felt it was the weakest of the Janson stories. I'm not sure if this was because of the incredible nature of much of the story, or because of the irritating narration.

    "If you enjoy melodramatic, you'll enjoy this"

    This work is nowhere near the quality garnered by Robert Ludlum. It is full of cliches and Ho-Hum expectations.

    "Almost unlistenable"

    The story was interesting enough.The reader however was almost impossible to listen to. I increase the speed to 1.25 times to make it palatable. His phrasing is so disjointed that it was disturbing.
    I could not be convinced about the authenticity of the characters in this book even though a good deal of effort was made by the author to describe their inner lives. Not up to Ludlum standards.

    "Painful Listening"

    The narrator was so bad, with no difference in voice between the characters, that I simply could not maintain interest. I'd like to hear the story performed by another narrator to tell whether or not the actual story was any good.

    "just couldn't listen"

    The narrator's diction and enunciation were great but no emotion. Closed it after intro. Boring.

    Story
    "Hard Listen"
    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes with the caveat that the narrator makes this a hard listen


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janson Equation?

    Keeps you wondering


    Would you be willing to try another one of Kevin T. Collins’s performances?

    Not in this type of character


    Could you see Robert Ludlum's (TM) The Janson Equation being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    Need to keep consistency with the character in narration. This change with this narrator ruined the Paul Jason image.

    "Dont waste your time"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    No, the narrator was terrible. It was a completely miserable attempt to portray Paul Janson, incredibly unbelievable. It was really hard to get into the story when Kevin had absolutely no feel for the tone of the story. Also, the new author doesn't come close to doing Robert Ludlum justice. The new backstory doesn't even match the previous books.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kevin T. Collins?

    Grant Blackwood


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

    No
