Fault Line was originally published in 2009. Eisler then published the Kindle ebook version and the Audible version which he narrated early in 2014...Show More » At the same time he also released digital versions of Book 2 in the Ben Treven series (Inside Out) which was originally published in 2010. I read both books soon after their original releases. In my opinion the Ben Treven two book series along with The God's Eye View, which was released early in 2016, are 5 star novels and the three best books Eisler has written.
I have Audible versions of Eisler's 8 John Rain novels and all are wonderful. My intention is not to denigrate them; it's just that in my opinion they do not measure up to the the three books in the above paragraph.
Barry Eisler started to narrate his own books with John Rain #7 (The Detachment) in 2011. Early in 2014 he re-released the first 6 John Rain novels changing the titles of most. He also narrated the audiobook versions of the six re-released John Rain novels. Eisler may be as excellent a narrator as he is an author. Although I had earlier released Audible versions of the 6 re-released novels, I purchased most of the Eisler narrated versions. Barry Eisler made a great call in narrating his own novels.
Some comments on upcoming releases by some of my favorite mystery/thriller authors: The upcoming releases of the latest David Baldacci (Amos Decker) and Brad Thor (Scott Harvath) audiobooks are already listed under "Coming Soon" at Audible. Brett Battles' new Jonathan Quinn novel The Unleashed is not yet listed but it is out on Kindle already and the author says he expects the audiobook to be available during May. First Strike (Dewey Andras) by Ben Coes and Ghosts of War (Pike Logan) by Brad Taylor are expected to be released on June 28, 2016. The Black Widow (Gabriel Allon) by Daniel Silva should be released on July 12. A new Gamache (A Great Reckoning) by Louise Penny will be released in August. A Kept Woman (Will Trent series) by Karin Slaughter will be released in September. The next Mitch Rapp novel is expected for October. The next Jack Reacher arrives just after election day at the same time as the new, and I hope last. Clifton Chronicles novel. Mark Greaney's newest Jack Ryan book is scheduled for early December. Marc Cameron is expected to release his latest Jericho Quinn thriller just before the new year. I look forward to listening to all of the above mentioned novels.
