Sci-Fi, Fantasy, historical fiction, mystery, thrillers with sarcasm are my favorites with some Romance thrown in for fun.
Jamie Freveletti does a great job continuing the Robert Ludlum Cover One Series & Jeff Woodman does the audio production proud!
As normal it is John Smith & his merry people with a few new faces against the world and this time against other US agencies.
I am very happy they keep finding new tasks for Marty. Not only does he provide some levity (my favorite scenes of him are in the next book, The Utopia Experiment) but also shows how someone with an impairment can still bloom, grow & make a significant impact.
My only disappointment was when the President told Fred Klein the plan of action, thought that was out of character for both of them.
I enjoyed the tongue & cheek references to the 007, James Bond series.
This is still one of my favorite series. Thanks to the Ludlum foundation for keeping this series going.
Exciting, realistic and great characters
The plot line was good and the characters interesting yet consistent with prior characters. You really care about John Smith and I wish Peter Howard would have had a bigger role. Will we see Noland again--I hope so
The reader was excellent--and the expressions good.
From the headlines of today
I hope Jamie writes more. He is the best Covert One author since Gayle Lunds
Yes I already have read it again..more than once.
I listen to these as I work. It kept me very focused on the story. Did not want to pause it even when necessary.
The performance is half of the story. I have already turned down a book because of the performance of the narrator. The narrator was very good and I would listen again to his performance.
Made me laugh at times. I know this series (have it all) and really enjoy it.
Like I said earlier...can't wait for the next one, and many more!
Yes. I love the Covert One characters
The Haddes Factor
He kept true to the characters but has added his own flare. These don't read like an attempt to copy.
This book is a great continuation of the covert one series. Can't wait to start the next one. I would recommend this series to anyone looking for a thrilling story that will keep you on the edge of your seat.
Yes, I would listen to it again. The plot is complicated, and some of the names are confusing to me, so I probably missed parts of the story that I would catch the second time. It is also a great story, and well worth a second listen.
The last half hour is the most satisfying but I would give the ending away if I described it. There are a number of exciting scenes throughout the story. It is never slow or dull.
He is great with voices and accents. You forget it is all the same person.
The story is too involved for a tag line, and a movie would have to cut the book to shreds to fit the time requirements. That's the best part of a book - you don't have to give up the details.
I have now listened to every one of the Covert One books. They are all outstanding, with just one exception, but this may be the best of all of them. I will be looking for other books by this author.
🌺 Lover of Amazing Stories 🌺
Whew! You get a crash course in action listening to this sweet little gem of kick a**, biohazard action!
I love that each member of the team are friends who respect one another and no lines are blurred on that point. I loved that John actually acts like a grown man rather than a horny teenager with his attraction to (crap, I can't remember her name). I loved that Russell is just as hard, strong, and professional as her male team mates. And I love that this is true action entertainment.
Great narration to a great biohazard action packed tale!
Yea, this story earned my money!
This is my least favorite of the Covert One books. My biggest complaint is that the book just seems to keep going for no apparent reason. There are numerous points where it seems like the battles should end, but the bad guys just get away. Then at the end, it just ends. Like the author was trying to achieve a certain number of pages and then realized they had reached the number so they just ended the book in the next paragraph. Despite having serious diseases or injuries, the heros just miraculously heal and the book ends. I like the rest of the series, but I think I'll skip this one when I listen to them again in the future.
As go the rest of the series this was excitement from beginning to end. Jamie carried on with the topic very well and made this a typical Covert One novel. I hope she'll keep it going.
