Nothing stops former Navy SEAL and Tier One operator John Dempsey from answering the call of duty - including a mission with the highest stakes he's ever faced. When one of the most brazen and lethal acts of terrorism rocks American and Israeli intelligence forces at the highest levels, Dempsey's ultracovert antiterror unit, Ember, mobilizes. But this operation isn't just a retaliatory strike by Ember; it's a mission of vengeance for Dempsey.

I think this is my favorite one in the series so far with all the characters well developed.
Porter is an excellent reader, adds character to the voices but without overdoing it

So this is a good book. I enjoyed it and have little to criticize. Yes like many similar thrillers the storyline is a bit out there but if you can accept that it is very enjoyable.
The narrator is superb and adds much nut does not overdo anything
Only mystery is who is Jack Mars?

The first storm comes from, of all places, the Minnesota zoo. Two large and very rare Amur tigers have vanished from their cage, and authorities are worried sick that they've been stolen for their body parts. Traditional Chinese medicine prizes those parts for home remedies, and people will do extreme things to get what they need. Some of them are a great deal more extreme than others - as Virgil is about to find out.

When Russian President Valeri Volodin's ambitions are foiled in Dagestan, he faces a difficult choice. The oligarchs who support him expect a constant flow of graft, but with energy prices cratering, the Russian economy sputters to a virtual halt. Unable to grow the Russian market at home, his hold on power relies on expansion abroad—a plan that has been thwarted by the United States in the past. But this time Volodin has determined that an indirect approach is the best.

I always have somewhat modest expectations for ghost written novels but I must say Mr Greaney has done a fabulous job in carrying on Mr Clancy's characters and style
Scott Brick is I think my favorite reader-- superb
Please write and read more. I can't wait
