Shot in the head and recovering from brain surgery, Delta Force soldier Thomas Nelson wakes up in a military hospital unable to remember who he is. Faced with going through recovery alone, with no family that he's aware of, he is recruited by a top secret government agency. Project Specter is tasked with eliminating targets they deem to be a threat to the United States. Their goal is to turn Nelson into a super assassin named Matthew Cain.
Cain's first mission is supposed to be a piece of cake. Just take out an escaped fugitive in Honduras who's on the run for the rape and murder of a little girl in New York. There's only one problem; somebody beat him to it. Everything is not what it seems as Cain gets mixed up with an international arms dealer and an ex-government agent who's gone rogue and is supposed to be dead.
The Cain Conspiracy is the first book in the high-octane Cain Series.

I enjoyed the Cain Conspiracy, mainly because there is a lot of action in a short amount of time. This book is less than 5 hours long, but it utilizes every chapter well. It starts off a bit slow, but once you get to know Matthew Cain the pace really picks up. This book is a good start to a series, however, the protagonist isn’t entirely fresh. He is almost the cookie cutter “super assassin,” but hey, some of us like “more of the same,” right? Nothing wrong with that.
The narration for this book is lacking, though. It’s not terrible, it’s just half way decent. Charles Hayward has the perfect voice of this kind of book, but his performance sounds really forced and stilted.

In addition to detective work, action and some unexpected twists, the author also tells a 'softer familial' story allowing the reader to feel empathy for some of the characters.

I like the premise of this book. Execution was a little lacking. The narrator did a good job. He was the best thing about the book. I received this audiobook for free for my unbiased review.
