Publisher's Summary

They were orphans, Chris and Saul - raised in a Philadelphia school for boys, bonded by friendship, and devoted to a mysterious man called Eliot.

He visited them and brought them candy.

He treated them like sons.

He trained them to be assassins.

Now he is trying desperately to have them killed.

Spanning the globe, here is an astonishing novel of fierce loyalty and violent betrayal, of murders planned and coolly executed, of revenge bitterly, urgently desired.

    "Great book, choppy reading"

    I'm a big fan or Morrell and I loved this book, but the production on this audio version is pretty sub-par. The narrator's voice goes really fast, as if the speed on the tape was increased. This makes it difficult to understand some of the words and the listener can end up confused on some character and plot points simply because it goes too fast to process.

    I listen to too many audio books; love about 80% of them. History, historic fiction, biography, fantasy and science fiction are favorites.

    "Strong story, a tad long"

    Worth a credit. Warning: the book is more than 20 years old and feels a bit dated.

    I prefer single readers to casts, but the story itself is strong and held my attention most of the way. I did feel, however, that it began to grow a bit predictable and I was ready for the story to wind up about 45 minutes before it actually did.

    I did not find the reading too clipped or fast. I'll read more Morrell after this one.

    "Good story, mediocre narration"
    Any additional comments?

    I have been a fan of David Morrell's books for years and was excited to see this one come to Audible. It is one of my original favorites. The downside is the narration, it is too fast and at times choppy and unclear. It can be hard to follow and I find that despite knowing the story, I occasionally get lost. It is still a good book and a good choice, you just have to get past the less than desirable narration.
