The Devil always gets his due.
Once he was called the Sphinx, a man so inscrutable that neither his adversaries nor fellow intelligence operatives could predict his next move. Now a contract agent with a secret mission, Jonathan Wyatt has gone rogue. For eight years he's been plotting. Waiting. Scheming to kill Federal agents Christopher Combs and Cotton Malone, whom he blames for the loss of his career. But as Wyatt prepares for a final confrontation in a remote South American village, he makes a discovery that stretches back to the horrors of World War II, to the astounding secret of a child's birth, to Martin Bormann and Eva Braun and to a fortune in lost gold.

Steve Berry has woven a great story around the remarkable events that transpired with the end of World War II. Add to that the vocal talents of a great reader, and you have a recipe for a captivating audible short story. Scott Brick is, in my opinion, at the top of his craft. His characterizations are exceptional. While I enjoy several audio book narrators, none compares with Mr. Brick. His talent is responsible for making me an audio junkie!
Almost everything I've read from Steve Berry is excellent
all of it.
Scott's wonderful, wish he'd do more book's
Retired "Okie" librarian & happy to have found Audible for good stories & staying in touch with new authors & books.
Yes! Particularly a friend with an interest in history, facts, & what ifs! An alternative ending to Nazi history, "The Devil's Gold", weaves historical fact & fiction into a new cloth.
It is a well written short story introducing Jonathan Wyatt now a rogue agent hunting for revenge from Cotton Malone who is the series star. There's less action & more dialogue in this story & Cotton Malone does not appear. But I think this is best listened to before Berry's novel "Jefferson's Key", & is ment to introduce it although is not necessary to it. Scott Brick is excellent as narrator. This is a standard story from Berry, nothing embarrassing if one is listening as a family but the fiction may need to be explained.
I just think the book was great. It had a intresting story line
I don't remember the name of the main character, but he left you wanting more
The ending of the story
Revenge is comming
Scott Brick makes the audio books of Steve Berry
