Tyrell Hawthorne was a naval intelligence officer - one of the best - until the rainswept night in Amsterdam when his wife was murdered, an innocent victim of the games spies play. Since then he's been sailing charters in the islands. Now he's called out of retirement for one last assignment. For Hawthorne is the only man alive who can track down the world's most dangerous terrorist.

    "skip this book"

    Conclusion: skip this book

    Why? First, the narration is awful. You won't know what character is speaking and it causes a lot of confusion.

    Second, the story does not flow very well, the characters are not very well developed and the scenes are not set clearly.

    Story
    "Very predictable"

    It may just be the bad narrator, (this guy sounds like a 1950???s news caster), but the story was very predictable. Not up to standards of his other books at all.
    The story does not flow and the narrator stops and starts so sharply it makes it hard to listen too.

    "terrible narration"

    Let me know if the story was good, because I can't get past the first 10 mins. The narration is so bad. There's little inflection, all characters sound the same and sometimes I couldn't even understand what was he was saying.

    "Let me start..."

    by saying that I love the Ludlum genre. And I’m very sorry that this one doesn’t fit the genre. It’s simply off. And when everyone calls each other “My darling”, gotta say, it’s weird.
