Publisher's Summary

On one evening in Washington, DC, several high-ranking members of government disappear in a mass kidnapping. Among the kidnapped is Nick Rendel, a computer software coding expert in charge of drone programming and strategy. He is the victim with the most dangerous knowledge, including confidential passwords and codes that are used to program the drones. If revealed, his kidnappers could reprogram the drones to strike targets within the United States.

Jon Smith and the Covert One team begin a worldwide search to recover the officials, but as the first kidnapping victims are rescued, they show disturbing signs of brainwashing or mind-altering drugs. Smith's investigation leads him to Fort Detrick, where a researcher, Dr. Laura Taylor, had been attempting to create a drug to wipe memory from soldiers suffering from post-traumatic stress syndrome. But Dr. Taylor's research was suspended almost a year ago, when she was placed in a mental institution. Now, if Smith doesn't figure out the brainwashing drug, and track down the kidnapped Nick Rendel, the kidnappers will soon have the power to carry out drone strikes anywhere in the world....

Love Covert One books.

Its good to have a covert one book back in the fold. I have missed them and Jamie Freveletti does a great job if continuing the tradition.

Excellent Story, Great Performance

If you could sum up Robert Ludlum's The Geneva Strategy in three words, what would they be?

Complex, exciting, entertaining.

What did you like best about this story?

There are many facets to the story that are very current, and a few new characters that play interesting roles in the story. I also like the fact that the author has not taken the easy way out by creating a romance between John and Randy.

What does Jeff Woodman bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Mr. Woodman is outstanding with voices and accents. He has dramatic ability and timing that are perfect for this type of story. There is one character I actually began to hate, and the sound of his voice made me want something bad to happen to him. That is the talent of this narrator.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

A tag line would do a disservice to a complicated story.

Any additional comments?

No.

Jeff Woodman never disappoints

While, I thoroughly enjoy just reading the Covert One series, it is Jeff Woodman's narration that really breathe life into Characters like Fred Klein & Randy Russell.

Story Is Good But Predictable

If you are a covert 1 fan, this installment should make you happy. The only thing I did not like about it was how the bad guys died. I thought the author could use a little more imagination there. Other than that, a typical Jon Smith adventure.

Good Listen but .....

This was a good listen but it's not the best from the series. Also, why does everyone in this book continually rock their hands back and forth?

Love the continued character development.

I really like the way John's relationship with Russell develops. Both loners but linked.

Decent story, good narration, poor writing

This was a decent entry in the Covert One series. Some good action, a likable plot, and good narration. The writing, however was poor and the editing as bad. Smith came across as a forgetful amateur. The non-central characters were stereotypes. I may have to avoid this authors entries in the series in the future.
