Nathan Stone was killed in action while serving as a covert CIA operative. Or so everyone thought. In reality he’s become a ghost, a black-ops asset with a new identity and controlled by a secret government organization. The Commission has one aim: to hunt down and assassinate anti-establishment enemies of the state. Its number-one target is Senator Brad Crichton, an ambitious politician with growing support. Stone is ready to take him out, but his plan is soon compromised....

I have read the Reznik novels so I thought this would be just as awesome. But honestly I had no clue which character to care for or root for. Eventually you're left with Nathan... But he never really has has a Epiphany moment that makes him into a good guys. He is still a stone cold killer at the end of the book.... This is the strangest anti hero book I ever listened to.... I was left very unsatisfied at the end of the book.

Tom Wade is a determined cop and a relentless man of action - equal parts Harry Bosch and Jack Reacher - who battles police corruption and a ruthless crime lord, against impossible odds. He’s exiled by his superiors to one of King City’s most notorious and violent neighborhoods - a poverty-stricken, gang-ridden hellhole known as Darwin Gardens. It’s a de facto death sentence. But Wade doesn’t fight the potentially fatal reassignment. With just two rookie officers to help him, Wade does the only thing he’s wired to do: his job.

Reeder - nicknamed "Peep" for his unparalleled skills at reading body language - makes a startling discovery while reviewing a security tape: the shooting was premeditated, not a botched robbery. Even more chilling, the controversial Venter may not be the only justice targeted for death.

I love the story and the characters. Someone complained about the authors political views and gave it a 1 star, how stupid was that. Come on man just read the book and enjoy the story cuz the lead character is awesome, the story unfolds perfectly. If you love CSI type shows and books you gotta listen to it. Best book I've listened to in a long time! Loved every minute of it!! And the narrator Dan John Miller is amazing, simply amazing, such a talented actor he is. Made me watch the entire book in my head as a movie, with his voice talent. Thank you Mr. Miller for narrating this book. Can't wait to listen to your other books.

Is the only word that comes to mind. Loved every minute of listening to this book. I sure hope there is a follow up book. This is my 1st brain Haig book and I simply love it. I never give 5 stars to any book. But this deserves the best possible score. And man ohhh man Christopher Lane, the narrator is God good a very talented man! He conveyed emotions of characters better than any other narrator I've ever heard before! Thank u sir for narrating this book.
