Publisher's Summary

Ryan Kealey has no doubt that the forces seeking to tip this teetering world into chaos are just getting better. Better equipped, better organized, and, most terrifying of all, more patient. And despite all the ELINT, the all-seeing electronic intelligence gathered at Langley, nothing stops a devastating attack from ripping through the heart of San Antonio, Texas.

Wrenched from retirement to work the Texas tragedy, Kealey learns of a far greater threat in the Middle East. A radical terrorist group claims possession of a powerful ancient relic, the Staff of Moses, which they will use to unleash plagues across the globe. To avert unimaginable devastation, lone-wolf Kealey, armed with little more than intuition, must prevent a disaster of biblical proportions that may well be inevitable.

    Story
    "Rating this book a 1 is liberal"

    I felt like the book had possibilities bet after 5 min I was proven wrong once again.. I love this kind of subject matter in many of the books I read, but this book tempts me to read love stories or paper back westerns only.
    I hope I am getting the message through that this one is not worth your time to listen to it and if by chance you do listen Audible should give you 10 credits for the pain and suffering.
    I hope I sold you on the idea that there is nothing in this book that's worth your time to listen.

    Story
    "Very annoyed"
    Would you listen to Threatcon Delta again? Why?

    No, I almost turned it off because the narrator was so annoying. He sound like he was on the edge of his seat and so excited to be narrating


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    No, but it may have been the terrible performance. I have enjoyed the previous books in this series.


    Would you be willing to try another one of David Ledoux’s performances?

    NO


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

    I normally hate to stop listening but in the case of this performance it was only my desire to hear the end of the story that kept me turning it back on everyday


    Any additional comments?

    I have listened to over 250 audio books, some of them multiple times and have never taken the time to write a review before. I noticed that this seemed to be an in-house production of some sort and that may have been the problem, choosing a less than top notch story teller. I hope this is not the shape of things to come

    "couldn't get past the narrator"

    I was very disappointed in the narration of the book. this book is read by a different narrator than the other books in the series. the narrator was way too over exuberant and tries too hard. I felt it was very hard to follow the story.

    Story
    "Good story hard listen."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Threatcon Delta to be better than the print version?

    The print version is always better than the audio edition but reading at 75mph is difficult.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes the story was quite good.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    The halting cadence and variable inflection of David Ledoux made me think that I had mistakenly downloaded William Shatner reads Tolstoy. Perhaps it is just me but I won't be getting another book in the series unless the narrator changes.

    Story
    "The Narrator was extreemly annoying."
    What would have made Threatcon Delta better?

    A bit more involvement by Kealey and let Scott Brick narrate. I vote for a redo.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Britton again?

    I have listened to all of the Britton's previous narrators which were a 1000% better.


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of David Ledoux?

    Scott Brick


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Starting with the prologue it was sadness and disappointment. It was painful. I just wanted the get to the end to find out what happens to Kealey. The story was a little shallow unlike Britton's previous books.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't get the audio book. Read the real book.

    "the narrator tells the story"

    the narrator is trying to force the emotion and just not working for the story so it kills the story.

    Story
    "Wrong narrator for this book"
    Would you try another book from Andrew Britton and/or David Ledoux?

    The narrator for this novel David Ledoux is not a good choice as narrator of this book. Previous Ryan Kealy character novels were read by Christopher Lane and his voice is on target, but Mr. Ledoux has a "sing/song" way of speaking which I don't think fits the characters or settings of a Kealy novel


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    His delivery was not compatible with the main character


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Use a different Narrator for Ryan Kealy character; Christopher Lane was very good.

    "Narration ould be much better"
    Would you try another book from Andrew Britton and/or David Ledoux?

    I've listened to all the Ryan Kealey series. Story wise this might not be the best but it's still pretty good. The narration left much to be desired.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Middle east settings have become so much the standard in this genre that there is little left to be educated on.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Wow! A lot.
    Lack of inflection. Little distinction among characters and a somewhat sing/song cadence
    Bring back Christopher Lane..


    Did Threatcon Delta inspire you to do anything?

    No


    Any additional comments?

    I think it would be a better read than listen.
