What an exciting book! The story in “Black Harvest” has all the elements of a bestseller and is as exciting as a thriller can get. Nick, the main character, is strong, attractive and realistic. With his combat experiences as a marine, he knows how to handle danger and is prepared for any situation, despite his injuries, both physical and emotional. One thing he is not prepared for is his love for his teammate, beautiful Selena.
Traveling from Greece to Bulgaria to the United States, Nick and Selena are on a hunt to avert a world-wide disaster and uncover who is really behind the murder of James Campbell, and how far and deep the plot behind his murder stretches.
The story by Alex Lukeman is exciting, with all the intrigue, mystery, danger, and love, and Jack De Golia makes it even more exciting with his perfect sense of timing and pacing, his dramatic narration, and an overall wonderful presentation. Five stars!

Black Harvest by Alex Lukeman is a classic action novel, the fourth in the series called The Project. Working as part of an elite covert intelligence division that answers only to the President, Nick Carter and Selena Conner travel around the world to figure out how a translation of ancient clay tablets from Persia were involved in the murder of a crop virus expert who has been working on a bio-warfare program for the Pentagon. As a global conspiracy unfolds, Nick, Selena and the rest of the team try to determine who the players are in the conspiracy, how everything fits together, and who’s behind it as their lives are put into danger.
This was an action packed novel with the team getting into trouble over and over as they discover clues. It held my attention throughout the story as the mystery unfolded and I tried to figure out what was happening. To me it was a mix between The DaVinci Code by Dan Brown and story arcs in shows like NCIS. It was definitely a part of a series as there was information that had to be introduced that had happened in the previous novels and the end left more to be discovered even though the main story arc came to an end. However, this novel could definitely stand on its own. The only challenge was that sometimes the interpersonal relationships between the characters were difficult to understand or believe. The inter-novel story arc I thought was coming to the forefront in at the end of this novel, and I am interested in finding out what happens next.
I thought the narration by Jack deGolia was good. He did a good job narrating the different characters and the accents when they were necessary. The production quality was good as well. I would recommend this novel to anyone who like government/military action thrillers with a bit of bio-warfare thrown in.

This book has all the components of a brilliant spy thriller, it is action packed and keeps the listener on the edge of their seats.
Nick Carter, the main character is everything we would imagine a top agent to be, intelligent, ruthless, a trained killer, and a man able to deal with any situation. This type of job however, has its own penalties, including having to conquer the recurring demons from his past. Throughout the story, these threaten the future of a blossoming affair with one of his team mates Selena Connor, can people in jobs like theirs ever hope for love?
Jack de Golia narrates this exciting story, wonderfully, bringing to life the very interesting range of characters the story contains. This is the first Alex Lukeman story I have listened to, but I shall certainly be listening to more.
We have always accepted that there are lessons to be learnt from the past, secrets buried, waiting to be discovered. Some, have been buried deeply, for a reason. They should never be found.
This is the story of what happens when one such secret is unleashed on this modern world. The plot unfortunately, is all too feasible, which is frightening really, however, everywhere we look now-a-days we see plenty of evidence of mans greed and lust for power.
