No names. No Feds. No trace evidence. That's how Jonathan Grave operates. As a freelance specialist in covert rescues, he has to work outside the law to get things done - especially in highly sensitive hostage situations. But when an Indiana college student is abducted, and Jonathan's meticulous plan explodes into a deadly shooting spree, the local authorities are out for blood - and they're not alone. Someone wants to control a devastating secret...Someone rich and powerful.

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I would recommend to book to anyone who enjoys thrillers. But I would not recommend the audio version.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. The characters are well fleshed out and and well defined, except for the bad guys. The final action is violent, bloody and makes me hold my breath.

What didn’t you like about Jeremy Gage’s performance?

Jeremy Gage's voice and accent are better suited to Byron or Shelley. The upward lilt of his voice in almost every sentence is very annoying. This is a rough and tumble action thriller and
should have been read by someone with a true American accent if there is such a thing. There is very little change in his voice to distinguish characters so deciding who is having the conversation was difficult. I was glad to reach the end as I was tired of Gage's whispery voice.
