Publisher's Summary

White Jade is a fast-paced thriller that spins a web of deceit and murder across the globe, featuring characters caught up in a deadly international power game.

Former Recon Marine Nick Carter works for the Project, a covert counter-terrorism unit reporting to the President. He's taciturn and tough, with a dark history of emotional and physical scars. Selena Connor is a beautiful, strong, and skilled linguist. When her wealthy uncle is murdered by someone looking for an ancient book about the elixir of immortality, she's thrown into Nick's dangerous world.

Nick is assigned to protect Selena and help her recover the missing text. The search escalates into a life and death adventure reaching from the gold country of California to the high country of Tibet, from Washington to Beijing. Along the way Nick and Selena begin a relationship forged by danger, combat, and betrayal. Someone is out to take over China and attack America--and Nick and Selena are right in the line of fire.

International intrigue, terrorist acts, romance, patriotism, and the threat of nuclear war form the core of the book, the first volume in a series featuring Nick, Selena, the Project and the ongoing, complex relationship between the main protagonists.

    "Great fun."
    Any additional comments?

    I read the fifth book in this series first and thoroughly enjoyed the over-the-top spy thriller. This is the first book in the series. The author is clearly establishing the characters and settings for the series, and so is perhaps slower then future books in the series. Still, it was great fun and I'm looking forward to reading the next book in the series.

    "A wild ride from begining to end!"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    OMG Yes! This is one awesome story! Action packed suspense thriller mixing past present & future along with mystery & terrorism!


    What other book might you compare White Jade to and why?

    I don't like to compare books normally as people judge the book you compared it to unfairly, but this is like Indiana Jones meets Mission Impossible! Super exciting, never a dull moment. Pay attention or you will miss something!


    What about Jack de Golia’s performance did you like?

    I loved Jack's ability to do so many different voices! He was on spot all the way thru this book making the book very believable! I could close my eyes while I listened & picture this happening in a movie.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It had me on the edge of my seat! I was afraid of what was happening. I was afraid the end of the world was coming. I was afraid a war would start!


    Any additional comments?

    WOW, this whole book was incredible! Never a dull moment in the book. It was dangerous, exciting, scary, adventurous, mysterious & suspenseful along with disaster, espionage, thrills stacks upon more thrills! Incredible!!!

    What did you love best about White Jade?

    Jack DeGolia does a fantastic job interpreting White Jade, capturing the essence of the characters. Alex Lukeman's story keeps listeners on the edge, waiting to hear what's next in store.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of White Jade?

    When they were in Tibet -- that whole segment of the book


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Hard to chose a favorite, but I loved it when Selena saves the day. She is a strong female character who doesn't need a knight on a white horse -- she can hold her own.


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

    yes!


    Any additional comments?

    "average read."

    Didn't kept my interest. Never really got in-depth with the characters. Hopefully other series are better?

    "It's OK"

    I didn’t love this book but I didn’t hate it. The language (especially some of the dialog) is a bit stiff which make it a bit hard to get into. The plot is a bit out there but comes together in the end. The characters are likable if a bit broken, which helps make them a bit more believable. I’m not running out to get the next book in the series but I’m not opposed to moving on either.

    Mr de Golia does a good job with the narration of this story. His pacing is good but his female voices need a little work. Also I’m wondering if he’s the correct narrator for this book. He sounds a bit cheery at times where I think this kind of story would have benefited from someone a bit more sinister sounding
