    "Boring"
    Would you ever listen to anything by Alex Berenson again?

    I hope this isn't an example of his other books. I mistakenly downloaded another title before I listened to this one. I won't make that mistake again.


    Would you be willing to try another one of George Guidall’s performances?

    Yes, I have other books that he did.


    Any additional comments?

    After 2 hours of listening to this I gave up, it jumped around to so many different people and plots and none of them seemed to relate to the other except that CIA is somehow involved.

    "John Wells does it Again!!!!"

    This is truly a great story that just keeps you entertained throughout. George Guidall is without a doubt one of the best narrators out there. His voice is as much the story as the book itself. A wonderful wonderful 2nd book of the series. I highly recommend.

    "Not as good as Faithful Spy"

    OK book, blot not very plausible. Ending is a bit too quick and solution not realistic. Trying to tie the rise of China into war with terrorism seems far fetched. Book saved by good characterization of main character. Good audio reader.

    "unrealistic"

    I really did not think the Chinese characters made any sense. I especially think the turn coat was not believable. I would not recommend this unless you have exhausted this genre.

    "...more of the same"

    ...if you like the NYTimes, you'll appreciate this; condemnation of US practices and confirmation of the correctness of PC thought

    "missing chapters"

    I think there is a problem of missing chapters. At the end of part one, the story suddenly skips forward. Did anyone else notice this?
