General Bob Underwood - a special presidential envoy for the Global Coalition to Counter ISIL - is en route to the Syrian city of al-Bukamal when a rocket-propelled grenade strikes the side of his Humvee, and the heavily armored convoy comes under attack. The general's bodyguard is brutally murdered, and Underwood himself is kidnapped. Hours later the president and top officials watch in horror from the Oval Office as the general is viciously beheaded by an ISIL leader - broadcast on live television through a direct feed from Al Jazeera.

They are an international elite unit created by NATO to carry out missions where no other could hope to succeed. A mix of Seals, Delta Force, British SAS and French, German and Polish SpecOps operators. Led by a former Navy Seal, Lieutenant Abe Talley. This is Echo Six. Even before they finish training a crisis develops that requires their unique and bloody brand of soldiering.

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

NARRATION.

How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

NARRATED bye anyone else.

What didn’t you like about Tim Welch’s performance?

Narration was all monitone and dry.You could tell he was reading with no emotion or character. I have heard 5 th graders that are better then him.

Any additional comments?

I wasted money on this book worst narration i have ever heard. I couldnt even finish thats sad because i have sat thru alot of boring narration but this unbearable.
