It begins with Red. Run, Red. Run!
In search of redemption from his sordid past, FBI Special Agent Alex Bailey takes on a new partner, Katherine Mitchel...and a new secret mission.
Before being assigned their first joint case, Katherine uncovers damning evidence against a major crime ring known as The Syndicate. The group controls key members of the DC Metropolitan Area Police, the US Congress, even the FBI, and they will stop at nothing to protect their interests. With her life on the line, Katherine is forced to put her faith in Alex as she flees from Washington, DC, and enters the Witness Protection Program.
Yet there's no hiding from The Syndicate.
In the most dangerous investigation of his career, Alex must decide how far he is willing to go to keep Katherine safe, and to stop The Syndicate.
Evolved Publishing presents the first book in The Syndicate-Born Trilogy, an exploration of what happens when one well-placed group possesses too much power, and how it affects those who just get in its way.
I'm an avid book listener and I throughly enjoyed 'Red on the Run' narrated by Monique Bagwell. The adrenaline rollercoaster storyline kept the reader wanting more and I followed along with ease, even with constant start and stops on my part. The narration style made it easy to follow the characters and I felt like it was more akin to storytelling rather than reading a book aloud. Her use of her voice and even breath made the words and characters come alive. I can't imagine the difficulty in creating a character from a voice alone, but one critique would be that the main character [Katherine] is such a strong/modern female, which by the way I'm excited to see a book revolve around, but her voice during fragile moments loses too much of her strength. I look forward to the rest of the series. I have been given a complimentary code in order to give an unbiased and honest review of the audiobook.

I was given a complimentary code for my unbiased review of this book...
The reader caught me immediately with her clear and concise reading of this engaging story, I commute long distances and was thrilled to have a story that made me wait till the absolute last second to turn off my iPhone....
till the 2nd part of my journey would allow me to get back into this well executed novel.
The length that the narrator went to to draw me in, made the story so much more alive. Her diction and emphasis allowed me to get lost in the characters easily, feeling as if I could “see” them and therefore experience the story in a deeper way. All in all I will look for both this author and narrator in future purchases,
Easily one of my better choices this year.
