Naumann's death puts Dalton on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?
An elegant, original, and chillingly suspenseful journey through the darkest alleys of international espionage, The Echelon Vendetta will keep you enthralled right up to its final, supremely satisfying twist.

"Fast-moving, smart, sexy, and alarming. Everything you want in a thriller." (Kirkus Reviews)
"A smoothly written spy thriller....Stone...packs the novel with the kind of nitty-gritty detail that draws espionage fans. A promising debut." (Booklist)
Excellent audio book.. kept my attention throughout the entire book. Looking forward to his next book. Also liked the narrator very much.. did not at first, but grew to like very much.. changing accents throughout the book made it more entertaining.
This book is an extremely riveting piece. It rejects normal formulas that often come with these suspense books and offers great surprise. Wonderful story; enormous variety and a great listen.
Hang on to your seat, because this book gives you quite a ride for your money! It is painfully graphic and suspenseful at times, to the point that you may have to stop listening to get your heart rate back to normal ...yet... You can't put it away for long. Just when you think you have it figured out it twists around... and the ending is unpredictably cool!
Favorite books are Mystery & Thrillers followed close by SciFi & Fantasy.
I found myself listening every free moment I had. Great book. It kept you guessing to the end.
The story line was good enough for 3 stars, but the narration was flat for 80% of the book. At times, I found that I really had to struggle to stay interested through the largely monotone narration (especially in the beginning).
