The Successor | [Stephen Frey]

The Successor

President Wood has a mission for Christian Gillette. There are secret negotiations going on with senior capitalists in post-Communist Cuba concerning the US, and the President wants Gillette to handle it. It is clear, however, that the trail cannot lead back to the Oval Office.

They are soon 1,000 miles apart and both in grave danger.

Publisher's Summary

President Jesse Wood has a mission for Christian Gillette: post-Communist Cuba. There are secret negotiations going on with senior capitalists in Cuba concerning the U.S., and the president wants Gillette to handle it. It is clear, however, that if the discussions ever came to light, the trail cannot lead back to the Oval Office.

Seeing no option but to accept the dangerous mission, Gillette heads to Florida with best friend and bodyguard Quentin Stiles, leaving his capable and alluring protege, Allison Wallace, in charge of Everest. They are soon 1,000 miles apart and both in grave danger - and now they aren't able to help each other to survive.

    Story
    "Kept me on the edge of my seat."
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would because the story never got boring. You hope that a "business thriller" like this one doesn't disappoint, especially since they got Mr. Graham (the nest narrater ever) to do it. Well, coming from a listener who loves the bloody stuff like Seal Team Six and the Joe Ledger Series, this one could contend with them. It's not bloody, but the action keeps you interested. It's also an interesting twisting plot about a revolution, a revolt, and a poor cow that brings everyone together. I feel sorry for the cow.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    It's easy to say Christian because he's the hero, but I liked the Cuban doctor more. He was brave and strong through the whole thing and had so much to lose, more than Christian.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The end when Christian discovers how strong the doctor's wife is, even though her life has been turned upside down. I think it helps his resolve with everything that happened in the book.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No because I needed to digest each chapter and twist. It's hard to keep a great book like this straight. i relistened to each chapter, just so I didn't miss anything.


    Any additional comments?

    This one gives you a good understanding of why men go to war and what they're willing to die for. Christian's a corporate tycoon who had his eyes opened by the people he's helping and it makes him a better man for it. This was a great one.

    "Enjoyed the series"

    The four books with Gillette as the main character were enjoyable to listen to. The first book, The Chairman, was clearly the best. This last book, The Successor, was probably the worst of the series. All in all, worth the credits and would recommend the entire series for anyone who enjoyed The Chairman.
