Suzanne Brockmann's wildly popular Troubleshooters series showcases this master storyteller's rare gift for blending intense adventure with sensuous romance. And it all begins with The Unsung Hero, a heart-pounding tale of love that reveals hidden truths and brings two solitary people together against all odds.
After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the sighting as injury-induced imaginings. In a last-ditch effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorism team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton. As the town's infamous bad boy, Tom was always in love with Kelly, a sweet "girl next door" who has grown into a remarkable woman. Now he has one final chance for happiness, one last chance to win her heart, and one desperate chance to save the day.

Incredibly good book.
Impossible to choose just one.
I truly enjoyed Patrick Lawlor...but not enough to listen to Melanie Ewbank for another second! I couldn't finish listening to this book; it was just that painful. (I've got the book, and I'll just have to re-read the rest.) Have you ever listened to the pronunciation sample of an online dictionary? THAT is how Ewbank reads!! Every single sound of every single word is deliberately enunciated.
I was really engrossed in the book, but when I realized that I was cringing and dreading the POV changing to the heroine's, I turned it off.
This is a very well written book. It's the one that hooked me on SEALs. The WWII backstory is woven in seamlessly. I'm sorely disappointed that I couldn't bear to listen to all of it. Ewbank is better suited to reading how-to manuals.
Suzanne Brockmann creates such vivid characters that just reading about them brings them to life. I have read Tom and Kelli's story several times over the years and really enjoyed having it read to me. I love the various depth that is given to each character!
I enjoyed this newly recorded audiobook better than the e-book.;
Other S. Bockmann books in The Troubleshooters series.
Mr. Lawlor and Ms. Ewbank have become the voices of the Troubleshooters. (Shout out to Rene Raudman on her narration on some titles as well). To have a good portion of this series re-recorded with their narration was a gift from the author and the narrators!
Ms. Brockmann's books and audios aren't for everyone. She has multiple points of view and many in this series include flashbacks to WW-II as well as the contemporary storyline. In the audios, Mr. Lawlor reads all characters when the POV is male and Ms. Ewbanks when the POV is female.
I always thought this first book in the series was very good but after struggling to finish the audiobook by the first narrator, I have never done a re-listen of this story. I have really enjoyed this re-listen and may have to continue with the rest of the series now!
I love Patrick and Melanie's narration. I have all the TS novels and I was overjoyed that they had decided to rerecord them bringing the quality up to what we are used to.
Tom, because he is the bad boy, grown up. I love the reality of worry about a career possibly over, and the wishful thinking of 'what could have been".
Well Sam is always high on my list!
This was a re-read and a re-listen to for me. So I knew the story, I just loved the new narration.
How are you going to have a male and female narrator and have the woman do girl and boy voices? The man also does both girl and boy voices. This was poorly executed. I abandoned this book in the early stages due to the confusion. Please don't ever do that again, audible.
I don't know. Couldn't get through it due to annoying narrator confusion.
Their voices were fine, but a little arrangement management will solve the glaring problem of continuity.
A different narrator
Sorry, didn't get that far into it; can't stand the narrator.
Extremely annoying; didn't get far enough to even hear Melanie Ewbank
Based on the preview I expected a thriller not some overly sex and more sex bit.
Leave out most of the sex. If this had been rated like a movie it would have been XXX.
