Publisher's Summary

Following a suicide bombing in central London, series SAS hero Danny Black is recruited to be part of an assassination squad, directed by a joint MI5/MI6/CIA committee and tasked with hunting down and killing the terrorist cells believed to be planning further atrocities. Early leads take them to a North London mosque and a one-armed hate cleric, whom the Home Secretary repeatedly tries and fails to expel from the country, a sleazy Saudi prince living in a Park Lane Hotel - on the surface a devout Muslim, he devotes himself to booze, drugs and hookers as soon as his family are out of the building - and a grizzled ex-Regiment guy who is spreading rumours that Diana was assassinated by the SAS in the tunnel in Paris because of her Arab lover.

The trail of clues takes Danny to a training camp in the Yemen, but just as he has the enemy in his sights, he discovers that they are somehow one step ahead of him, and he begins to suspect that they are being topped off by someone close to home.

Top notch in all respects. Outstanding plot, execution and narration; good enough to listen twice.

Excellent Story and Narration, however...

I am very disappointed that the 1st, 3rd, and, 5th books in this series are on Audible but cannot be purchased if one lives in the United States. Why allowed book 2?

Please release them.

fast-paced action, excellent narration

Danny Black is my favorite of Ryan's SAS heroes and his adventures really come to life when narrated. An entertaining story with a couple of surprises. Doesn't let you down if you're looking for a hard-hitting no-holds-barred thriller.

Narration is a BIG disappointment!!

I listened to Danny Black 1, Masters of War, narrated by Jamie Parker. Jamie makes it sound convincing with punchy delivery. However, then I listened to Danny Black 2, Hunter-Killer, narrated by Michael Fenner. I was very disappointed! Story is good, BUT, Michale makes the whole thing sound corny! Terrible! Michael uses colloquial UK accents and renders special ops guys sound simple-minded and witless. Bring back Jamie Parker or I remain very hesitant to purchase any more Chris Ryan novels.

A definate must listen.

Where does Hunter-Killer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

This has to be in my top 3 best books.

What other book might you compare Hunter-Killer to, and why?

I would compare this to Zero Six Bravo, for it's intense and gripping storyline.

Have you listened to any of Michael Fenner’s other performances? How does this one compare?

Michael Fenner always manages to hold the attention of the listener with his fantastic narration ability.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The poles... The meeting...

Any additional comments?

Well worth a listen, makes the tedious days at work fly by...

Fast paced and intriguing

What made the experience of listening to Hunter-Killer the most enjoyable?

Excellent narration made this a book that kept me listening through the night! Not my usual genre, but this gung ho action thriller was intriguing. Some elements of truth woven into a doublethink plot about terror attacks and who's really responsible. Neat false flag scenario? We'll never know

Another Superb Book By Chris Ryan...a superb work of narrative art!

Such is the multiple strategies of Chris Ryan's books that I thoroughly look out for, and ravishly read\audiobooks narrative in such a manner that I often find myself pining for Chris Ryan's next tome! Well done Chris, your works are thoroughly enjoyed!

Terrible narration

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

I enjoyed the narration of first book in the Danny Black trilogy, where he is a young SAS trooper in his early twenties,,,,,and the narrator was able to portray him as that. <br/>Book 2 picks up six months after Black's return from Syria, only now he sounds like a fifty year old bloke who smokes a couple of packets a day and drinks scotch by the bucket load.<br/>Spud on the other hand, sounds like the SAS' version of Barney Rubble of Flintstones fame.

Would you be willing to try another one of Michael Fenner’s performances?

I will listen to the final book in the series, just to complete the story line, but I'm not looking forwards to hearing Keith Richards & Barney Rubble taking me through it.
