Publisher's Summary

Cavanaugh, a former member of Delta Force who now works as a protector for those rich enough to afford him and his team, is hired by a brilliant scientist named Prescott who needs protection from a powerful drug lord seeking the highly addictive drug he has invented. At least that is what Cavanaugh is led to believe. After Cavanaugh trains the scientist in escape and evasion, the unthinkable occurs: Cavanaugh's team is viciously attacked and entirely wiped out - and Prescott seems to be in collusion with the attackers. Now Cavanaugh must fight against his own tactics and anticipate his enemy's every move while suffering the consequences of the real secret Prescott is hiding: a unique weapon that induces fear.

    "I no longer trust reader reviews"

    An unbelievable, unrealistic plot, one dimensional characters, one ridiculous chase scene after another make this novel a waste of time. I am really nervous now about heeding reader reviews since this book got good ones. The only almost accurate remarks were that this would make a good action movie (TV is more like it) as some of the escapes from implausible situations were at least ingenious. One star is actually generous for this book.

    "The Protector--A Minority Opinion"

    Although many listeners have written good reviews of The Protector--and I enjoy this general type of novel--I had to put this particular one in my clinker bin.
    While I admire Stephan Rudicki's speed of narration, perhaps these talents are better applied to conducting auctions. I tried listening to The Protector three times and on each occasion found myself losing interest, tuning it out, then turning it off.

    "One Exciting Ride"

    This book is one exciting ride. It is well written with plenty of plot twists and decent character development. I loved it. It was hard to turn off the CD when it came time to get out of the car.
