Some people get tattoos - pieces of art that enhance or reveal something about them that they like. Other people, like me, are branded by something - actions or words. "No one will ever love you, Rowan, you're not worthy." Those are the words that created my blemish, my scar, my mark upon my soul. They were words whispered by the woman who should have loved me most.

What did you like best about this story?

These characters are grappling with love, and they know it from the get-go. The story is much more romantic than I expected, but with plenty of action from the MMA fights.

What does George Wickham and Angela Moore bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

The narration did a good job of letting the reader connect with the mindset of these conflicted characters. You know how they're feeling, even when the book is not describing it. Also, the dual narration is nice. Angela Moore does an outstanding job with her character.

Audie Award, Original Work, 2016; Audie Award Finalist, Audio Drama, 2016. An aborted raid targeting a major arms dealer. A hostage standoff at a bank that may not be what it seems. A plot to spring a former African dictator from prison. What is the threat that connects them all? And just who is the mysterious mastermind, The Starling? From Mexico to Washington – from London to Marseille to Prague – war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his team of Volunteers risk their lives to follow the trail of clues. But how can they stop The Starling – when he always seems one step ahead?

Where does The Starling Project rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Can't really call it an audiobook as it's more like an audio drama, or a thriller spy film with the picture turned off. That said, I love audio drama even more than audio books. This doesn't disappoint.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Can you beat Alfred Molina? Middleton always stays calm and collected and one step ahead of the baddies. Plus the rest of the "Volunteers" flesh out a dynamic team.

Which scene was your favorite?

The bank heist, and the jungle standoff.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Middleton's love for Tadic is pretty touching.

Any additional comments?

Love to hear more! There's gotta be a sequel.
