I've loved this whole series but almost quit listening because of the narration. All the music, sound effects & other unnecessary sounds were distraction & very annoying. I barely finished listening to the whole thing.

It is April 1943, and Marine aviator Cletus Frade, Army demolition's wizard Anthony Pelosi, and communications expert David Ettinger are thrust again into the lethal nest of intrigue that is wartime Buenos Aires. A clandestine German vessel sets sail to resupply submarines in the South Atlantic...as a massive shipment of money earmarked for postwar Reich makes its way to South America...and a coup designed to topple the government reaches critical mass. In the midst of it all, the German-ordered assassination of Cletus Frade's father demands only one response: revenge.

I just listen to book 1 with Dick Hill narrating. It was great all the way around. The new book is great too but the narrator sounds like a computer generated voice. It's very distracting.

A great book but the corny special effects & music really took away from the story.

Here, a brilliant new approach to combating terrorism has just been born. Its codename: The Athena Project.

I loved the new characters. Thor has a unique ability to introduce new characters & draw you in from the very beginning. I love his Scot Horvath books but the girls of Athena were right on par with him. A great book that I highly recommend.

Very early, 4:45, on a bitterly cold Minnesota morning, three big men burst through the door of a hospital pharmacy, duct-tape the hands, feet, mouth, and eyes of two pharmacy workers, and clean the place out. But then things swiftly go bad, one of the workers dies, and the robbers hustle out to their truck-and find themselves for just one second face-to-face with a blond woman in the garage: Weather Karkinnen, surgeon, wife of an investigator named Lucas Davenport.

As usual, Sandford drew me in with the first chapter & the book just got better as it went along. It was great to have Lucas Davenport back in action. One of the best books I've purchased in quite some time.
