Fresh off his first mission back with the CIA, Court Gentry secures what seems like a cut-and-dried contract job: A group of expats in Paris hires him to kidnap the mistress of Syrian dictator Ahmed Azzam to get intel that could destabilize Azzam's regime. Court delivers Bianca Medina to the rebels, but his job doesn't end there. She soon reveals that she has given birth to a son, the only heir to Azzam's rule - and a potent threat to the Syrian president's powerful wife. Now, to get Bianca's cooperation, Court must bring her son out of Syria alive.

Past midnight, Chyna Shepherd, 26, gazed out a moonlit window, unable to sleep on her first night in the Napa Valley home of her best friend's family. Instinct proves reliable. A murderous sociopath, Edgler Forman Vess, has entered the house, intent on killing everyone inside. A self-proclaimed "homicidal adventurer", Vess lives only to satisfy all appetites as they arise, to immerse himself in sensation, to live without fear, remorse, or limits, to live with intensity.

Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he's honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can - even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

What disappointed you about How to Get Over It?

I am over it, thankfully! However, if I was desperate and really needed some help, this book would not be answer. I've purchased apx 136 books and this is the first book I have returned.

What could Patrick Wanis have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

Not cover so many topics/subjects simultaneously.

How could the performance have been better?

The introduction reminded me of the many hard sell commercials that promise you the world then quite to my dissapointed the real brilliance is only in the hard sell at the beginning.

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

effort to enlighten.

Any additional comments?

Love audible. Everyone does a super job, people are educated, capable and eager to help the customer. Truly you rank very high in customer satisfaction.
