Publisher's Summary

Colorado Congressman Evan Kendrick is trying to live out his term of office quietly—when a political mole reveals to the world Kendrick's deepest secret: that Kendrick was the anonymous man in Masqar, the man who courageously freed the hostage held in the American embassy by Arab terrorists; the unknown hero who performed an act of outrageous daring then silently disappeared.

Now, suddenly, Kendrick is a living target pursued by the terrorists he outwitted. Together with the beautiful woman who once saved his life, Kendrick enters a deadly arena where the only currency is blood, where frightened whispers speak of violence yet to come, and where Kendrick's life—and the fate of the free world—may ultimately rest in the powerful hands of a mysterious and deadly figure known only as the Mahdi.

    "Politician or not. A real hero."

    I just couldn't stop on this one. I even spent more time hiking just so I could listen longer.

    "The characters come alive"
    Would you consider the audio edition of The Icarus Agenda to be better than the print version?

    I have no idea if the audio version is better because I have not read nor seen the print version


    What other book might you compare The Icarus Agenda to and why?

    Daniel Silva books, because of the character development


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

    Love Scott brick.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Cry .....almost

    "I wanted to like it"

    But I just could not suspend disbelief. This book is comprised of two different stories (one a political intrigue, the other a super hero spy story) that the author was unable to stitch together convincingly. It is presented as three books, but each book consists of the two stories badly stitched together.

    "Good book"

    This was one of the better books, both story and narration, this from an 82 year great grandmother.

    "Will not hold my attention at all"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Not sure, the book is all over the place and is written badly. Unbelievable plot, story line and suspense is teeth "gnashingly" painful.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Robert Ludlum again?

    Sure would, but only his oldest works.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Scott Brick?

    Of course, he does a superb job with all the material he is given to read.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    None for me and I have listened to thousands of books in last 20 years.


    Any additional comments?

    Just disappointing.

    "Excellent book"

    A little hard to follow at times and a bit of a far fetched plot but very enjoyable.

    "The Hero is a jerk Do not waste your money"

    The book is full of the hero explaining how he is smarter than everyone and he is better than everyone. I only listened in hopes Scott Brick was a sign of a good book Even Scott Brick cannot save this character. I should have asked for a refund.

    "great story but the performance was the best ever"
    What made the experience of listening to The Icarus Agenda the most enjoyable?

    The performance was outstanding. The different characters were so real. I didn't want to stop listening.


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

    My first listen and i will search out more by this narrator.

    "Give it time"

    I chose this book because it was inexpensive and long. Also that I have enjoyed many books from this author and narrator. It took me a lot of time to get in this book, far more than any other book I've purchased from Audible. There's a lot going on, it causes you to have to pay attention. Overall I still feel that it was well written and I enjoyed the characters.
