    "Although this was yet another gripping and exciting story.."

    Although this was yet another gripping and exciting story in the Victor series, the plot involved him exposing himself to risks he simply would not take.

    Nevertheless, and just like the first two books, Victor is awesome, dealing with every risk thrown his way.

    And as ever, having survived the scary, stressful and exhausting journey alongside him, the listener/reader is left wanting more.

    Story
    "Best of the Three-book Series"

    This is the series featuring Victor, the Assassin. In this book, he is working for the CIA and takes on an assignment to substitute for another assassin whom he recently killed. The story is great with Victor moving through the "job" assigned to the other assassin. He is able to do it, because the contractor has never met the man he hired, so Victor is perfectly believable. The story takes a slight twist when the contractor brings in the other assassin's estranged wife and expects a reaction from the assassin (really Victor). Victor shows he is still a really good guy when he puts the safety of the other assassin's wife and child ahead of his own, even though he had never met her before this. The author does a great job moving between multiple facets of the story until they eventually collide to create an exciting ending. Highly recommend.

    Story
    "Back in good form"
    What made the experience of listening to The Game the most enjoyable?

    Unlike book 2, I thought this book was more tightly formed. The plot was logical, and while somewhat complex, flowed much better than book 2 in this series. The tension builds almost unnoticed until the action packed end. I loved the first book but thought book 2 was too disjointed and unnecessarily complicated, this one is just right.


    What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Great readers like Shapiro, keep characters voices interesting and consistent while moving the story along with ease.


    Any additional comments?

    Great read if you enjoy action, international intrigue and likable bad guys like Victor.

    "Another thrilling Victor mission"

    The plot had numerous unexpected twists. A thrill a minute ride. Great read by Rob Shapiro. Victor is such a complex character, we would really like to see his "back story".

    Story
    "This was the best yet"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Game to be better than the print version?

    Didn't read print.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The characters.


    Have you listened to any of Rob Shapiro’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I bought the three books from a sale. They were all good, but the second two were better than the first.


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

    Yes I did. I will likely listen to it again.


    Any additional comments?

    Though I bought all three on sale, I think they were worth the credit.

    "A He-Man's Book"

    Thrilling story dominated by a larger than life lead character who at times came across as too fantastic to be credible.

    "Non stop action with a great plot"

    The author once again gives us great story about his main character-Victor. He is as deadly as ever but the
    plot extends to the very end. Keeps you guessing about the direction until the final few chapters
