Patricio Carrera has been waging what amounts to a private world war to bring to justice the murderers of his family; He's raised an army and air force and used them. He's raised a fleet and he's about to use that. He's suborned one republic and is about to undermine another. He's tracked his enemies across half a world, breaking, in the process, any notion of international law that stood in his way. Now he's deployed his legions to Pashtia, penultimate hideout of the Salafi Ikhwan who have made him what he has become. But with each step further from his home, revenge seems no closer. And with each step he leaves behind him a little of his dwindling humanity. Revenge is a dish best served cold. Yet the trail itself grows cold, as cold as the snow-capped, windswept mountains of Pashtia. Only Carrera's hate still burns hot, and that's a fire that is slowly consuming him.

if James Fouhey was treated to a couple of hours on a cross for many parts of this performance.
My 2 out of 5 rating for his performance is maybe somewhat harsh but I can not with good conscience rate it as 3/5.
There are several reasons for this. I will mention the main ones.
He totally butchers every inner monolog by dint of a whispering mumble that gets intensely irritating.
Many times throughout this series Tom Kratman injects certain military lectures on certain pet peeves that the main character has. They come across as probably being hard to follow if one where to read them oneself. Sadly James Fouhey just makes it X times worse. Fluctuating tone, sounds unsure etc.. When one ends up skipping forward and ignoring such to keep from loosing ones cool, well that's not good.
Dialects.. James is apparently just incapable of any coherent use of dialects. The attempts at dialects are also just on the whole terrible.
