Reading is supposed to be fun and relaxing, not stressful and demanding.
I’ve listened to book three and book six in the series, the other being “The Nostradamus Files” and I really like them both. They can be listened to as stand alone audiobooks but I would like to listen to the whole series. The stories are good and adventurous and easy to follow.
The British Foreign Secretary is found assassinated in London with a sign on him, an ambigram in Arabic writing. This begins Nick Carter and Selena Conner’s journey through the rough terrain of the Sahara desert. They’re sent to Timbuktu in Western Africa where they encounter a terror cell while searching for hidden artifacts in a cave in the Algerian mountains. They find much more than they intended after being warned in advance by a few people aren’t who they appear to be.
I like these books because they stay with the subject. They’re interesting and keep the listener’s attention with some good twists, good plots, and likeable characters. There’s no deep involvement but rather, exciting perils. I would recommend any of these books for a good conspiracy adventure.
About the narrator: Jack de Golia is perfect in these books. He has a good middle of the road sound. He’s able to differentiate the character’s voices so that the listener always knows whose speaking. He also keeps the story moving at a steady pace.
