Publisher's Summary

Two distressed heroes. Three dastardly crimes. And the slickest heists of all time.

Imagine Bin Laden meets Bernie Madoff - and hold on for the ride.

A mysterious summons lures Kyle Achilles to a midnight meeting that shocks the world and sets a master plan in motion.

Meanwhile, his former partner also enters a terrible trap. It's ingenious and unprecedented, but just a hint of what's to follow.

Achilles and Jo join forces against the cunning culprit, but time is tight and the pressure is great. The Russian is not just making millions with his clever crimes - he's waging war on the United States.

Come for the characters, stay for the surprises. Falling Stars is a fast-paced thriller you'll want to share with friends.

5 star espionage thriller!

The Kyle Achilles series is perfect for adrenaline junkies. Like The Lies of Spies before it Falling Stars has a very creative plot that includes extreme suspense. Author Tim Tigner has become a force in suspense novel world in a relatively brief period of time. The perfect narration of Dick Hill only adds to the quality of Tigner's novels. Very highly recommended, but start the series with thee Chasing Ivan novella.

Hold on for a Wild Ride!

Tigner has written another Kyle Achilles winner with Falling Stars. Ivan the ghost is back and he has his hands into something new. He's gotten involved with a company that manufactures drones. The difference between these and other drones is this one is capable of lifting about 200 lbs. it has a remote claw that wraps around a person's torso and a taser if they struggle. The idea is to "kidnap" wealthy people a hold them for ransom about a mile high for about 10 minutes while the spouse gets on the computer and does a quick and large money transfer. If they refuse the victim gets dropped. Ivan tests it out first on Kyle's former partner Jo but she was able to escape. After Kyle is set up for murder by yet another weaponized drone he and Jo join forces to find out who is responsible. Tigner writes a fast paced book with plenty of action. This book doesn't have a dull moment.
Dick Hill does an excellent job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

A superb Tim Tigner novel read by Dick Hill

Since I am old school, the use of drones to me is fascinating. The entire story is about the weaponized use of drones and how easily it is accomplished. What an incredible adventure for Kyle and Jo. ( Katya, while briefly mentioned, play an important but very minor part this time.) I really enjoy the interaction between the characters. Ivan the Ghost, Kyle’s nemesis and “master planner and manipulator of all things,” reappears in this story (the bad guy in Book 1 - Chasing Ivan). I really enjoy these exciting chase stories. Due to the incredible capability of drones, this is a real nail-biter since you actually realize that law enforcement has only a minimal ability to counteract a situation when a drone is used for evil purposes. This story is again perfectly read by Dick Hill. As will all of the other Tim Tigner novels, Mr. Hill is able to perform the various character parts expertly. The variety of the accents and the cadence of the different character's speech patterns is fascinating when performed by one person. You feel you are actually with them in the story.

Non-stop thriller

Tim Tigner has scored again. What a great character. Kyle Achilles is on par with all the greats: Mitch Rapp, Jack Reacher et.al. And you can't do any better than Dick Hill. The combination makes for a delightful ride.

Super great read!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

I have read every one of Tim's novels, and absolutely loved them all. In each book, Tim comes up with some innovative new near-future scientific advancement and develops it into a non-stop action plot with more twists and turns than seem possible. This book is no exception; in fact, it is probably his best work to date. It held my interest from first page to last.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ivan the Ghost was my favorite character. Brilliant and totally amoral. The kind of guy I love to hate.

Have you listened to any of Dick Hill’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

I have listened to many of Dick Hill's performances before. He does a wonderful job in telling the stories in an interesting manner. Great accents make the characters come to life.

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

I was torn between wanting to listen to it in one session, and wanting the book to last and last.

Any additional comments?

Hurry up Tim. Isn't it time for the next new book release yet?

Ivan the Ghost is the ultimate villain

Dick Hill is the perfect guy for Achilles books and Jack Reacher books. His performance is outstanding. Kyle Achilles goes through more turns and twists than Lombard Street, and his trusty sidekick, Jo, is just as critical to Achilles as Robin is to Batman!! Just when you think you've got it figured out, it spins off in another higher risk direction. You finally get the idea that no matter how brilliant Achilles is, Ivan is one easy step ahead. I couldn't believe how some of the things Ivan did would actually turn out better than taking the easy way, but there is always something up he sleeve. Great book, kept me on the edge of my seat right up until the last chapter. BUT, is this really the end of Ivan???
