Publisher's Summary

Michael Valentine, veteran and former member of an elite private military company, has been recruited by the government to conduct a secret counter-terror operation in the Persian Gulf nation of Zubara. The unit is called Dead Six. Their mission is to take the fight to the enemy and not get caught. Lorenzo, assassin and thief extraordinaire, is being blackmailed by the world's most vicious crime lord. His team has to infiltrate the Zubaran terrorist network and pull off an impossible heist or his family will die. When Dead Six compromises his objective, Lorenzo has a new job: Find and kill Valentine. As allegiances are betrayed and the nation descends into a bloody civil war, Lorenzo and Valentine must face off. Two men. Two missions. Only one will win.

    "Good story but depressing"

    The other series by Larry Correia left me with a good feeling. The good guys came out on top in the end and most of them lived. Fantasy that was not real.
    The books by Larry Correia and Mike Kupari are too real. Too many of the main characters are killed. End was not optimistic.
    I have listened to the other books by Larry Correia several times and still enjoy them. I have no desire to listen to this book another time.

    I am a costume designer who listens to books at work. Isn't that a great job?! Discovered the concept way back when it was "books on tape", then cd, and now my iphone. the only down side is that I get upset when actors interupt my stories! Oops!

    Story
    "Surprised, though I shouldn't have been."
    If you could sum up Dead Six in three words, what would they be?

    Riveting. Satisfying. Transcending.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Both leads. They were remarkably human and tenacious.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the two trains (story lines) collide.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    YES! Stayed up too late a couple nights and got cranky at work when interrupted.


    Any additional comments?

    I was put off by the description, but since I love MHI and the Grimnoir, I checked out a couple of the other reviews and was convinced to give it a try. I bought three other books at the same time. Tried two of them and didn't make it ten minutes into either of them. I started Dead Six and was hooked two minutes in! I'm sorry, Larry. I should never have doubted you!

    Story
    "Dead Six ..who are they?"
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, if prepared to read the series. Great characters. The military camaraderie rang true. The ever elusive Dead 6 group Although mentioned in the last half, of the book were not really exposed. I don't want to give away the plot, however , very entertaining and suspenseful.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The surprises revealed by sudden actions of the primary team. And the characters were 3 dimensional.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    When the team rushed the villains home. And fulfilled most of their mission. I like rebels, and one character is quite independent, and ignores protocol often.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Lots of smiles. No laughing or crying. But felt huge adrenalin rushes.


    Any additional comments?

    I would definately recommend this book. Even to my most critical listener, my husband! He's new to audibooks and never seen without his earbuds anymore.

    Story
    "Not what I expected"

    I am a huge fan of the MHI series and the Grim Noir series. So I have been meaning to check out this book but was a little disappointed once I got a few chapters in. From the plot of it I thought that it was going to be more serious than his other series. Now there where no gangster gnomes but it was overflowing with one liners and humorously stereotypical characters which made up for that.
    I also know these characters from his other books already. Besides some small differences in their back stories the core characters and even the villains seem pretty identical to the MHI team.

    All this said the book is a run and gun action shooter and in that respect it completely kicked ass. My assumptions going in to the book is really what made my rating only good and not great. Larry writes great action sequences and did not disappoint in Dead Six.

    Story
    "Two stories smashed together rather awkwardly."

    There are two tales here and both could stand on their own but making them into one felt awkward and somewhat unbelievable. That's along with the complete lack of a likeable lead character meant this story did not have the same appeal as other works by this author. Narration performance is very good.

    Story
    "Meh...."

    Predictable story line. Did have enough promise that I hung in till the end, but never really improved on a flat plot. It really seemed like the narrator needed a bit of time to settle into the characters. I found the narration difficult to listen to through the first few hours, but the saving grace by the end.

    "Good book poor reader"

    I like the story and the pace. But the reader ruins some of the lines. Some characters are put on so much they sound mentally handicapped. These are supposed to be hard chargers not chuckleheads

    Story
    "Characters that are very hard to like"

    Having read other works by Larry Correia, I expected anti-government rhetoric, machismo, and detailed descriptions of weapons, but this book brought in a new element, and that was a group of protagonists so despicable that you wanted them to get killed as much as the bad guys. Having a hero that is tainted is not a new concept, but in this case, mercenaries with a history of murder, extortion, and war crimes made it hard to cheer on the main characters.

    The narration was also a bit odd. It took a while for me to understand the method being used by Mr. Pinochet. Over all though, I felt it could have been read at a faster pace.

    In summary, the book did entertain me and it wasn't a wasted credit. I would place this in the middle of the "to read" list if you enjoy Larry Correia's other works.

    "Too long!"

    It kept my attention but the book was way too long. It could have been half as long and still have been a good story. Bronson Pinchot was the reason I picked this book. Not very interested the next book.

    "Little hard to follow"

    This story is well written but is a little hard to follow listening to. This is especially true at the end where the two main characters (both written in the first person) converse quite a bit.

    Bronson Pinchot does a very good job though and is very entertaining especially when performing the villain.
