I'm sitting here listening to this, thinking to myself that hopefully we will end up finding that this is a double agent sort of story.
..Show More »/> Guy gets recruited into a top secret government agency, which seems very amateurish to me, He's recruited due to an injury that wipes his memory. He's out of the hospital in days (after being shot in the head and having surgery), then immediately hit in the head, and beaten in order to assure his new bosses that he 'has what it takes' to be an agent. Then sent home where someone is waiting for him. As soon as Cain sees its a woman, he relaxes ..... hmm .... his new supervisor is a woman, so after what he's been through he doesn't automatically think there is something wrong? He lowers his gun? His military instincts seem to have been working fine a week ago when he got kidnapped and beaten up by his new boss testing him out, but nothing here?!! I thought soldiers were taught better than that.
He's immediately sent on a mission - alone - untested. I would not be telling someone that he'd been hired to become an assassin and just go off alone. As well, Cain's supervisor seems very untrained. You would think that all supervisors were once field agents so would be comfortable in the field.
The plot was simple enough, and gave readers an introduction to the series and agency, it just seemed over simplified in a day when everyone reads or watches Jason Bourne and James Bond movies. I felt the women were one-dimensional, and the big boss, Sanders a bit overbearing, but that could have been intentional.
The narration was fine, I had no real problems there
This narrator has a terrible time pronouncing words and his delivery is boring. The narrator of the first book was much better. The performance kille..Show More »d the story with uneasy pauses, wheezy delivery, and slurred speech.
