Publisher's Summary

An incredible national security secret, more than two decades old.

An intrepid, tireless reporter, seeking the truth.

A CIA hunter-killer group, who will stop at nothing to silence the story.

This is the book you've been looking for: a deep, dark conspiracy that should delight those who loved the Jason Bourne movies, as well as fans of authors Vince Flynn, Tom Clancy, and Stephen Hunter. You won't believe what happens when free speech slams into the messy realities of national security.

Meet Nick Woods, a former Marine Scout Sniper, who used to be one of our country's greatest operatives.

Meet Allen Green, a ballsy reporter in his fifties, who's desperate to break the biggest story since Watergate.

When the book begins, Nick is in hiding, using an alias, and believes he'll never be found. Allen is opposed to all violence and believes he will never use a gun against someone.

Both couldn't be more wrong....

Sold Out is an epic, fast-paced story that will leave you breathless, waiting to see what happens next. It's also the first book in the spectacular Nick Woods series (fourth book to land in Spring, 2016).

The Nick Woods series has climbed to the top of the charts on Amazon -- and remained there for more than three years. It's also been picked up by Audible.com for a multi-book, audio deal.

    Story
    "If you like Greaney or Woods this book for you..."
    Would you listen to Sold Out again? Why?

    If I didn't have anything new waiting I probably would. It's a very good book and easy on the ears with Jay Snyder narrating.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sold Out?

    If I answer this it will spoil it for others!


    What about Jay Snyder’s performance did you like?

    I REALLY enjoy listening to Jay Snyder. I did have a hard time though not picturing Court Gentry in Nick Woods place. Very similar kind of stories. This did not take away from the book though, if anything I think I liked it quicker.


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

    I think I did, one day anyway. Then turned around and bought #2 in the series


    Any additional comments?

    This is the kind of book I search endlessly for. It takes off right from the first page and there is nonstop action right up until the end. The action is believable, the heartbreaking moments feel real and the anger is palpable. The main characters are likable and the antagonists are very unlikable. You can pretty much guess how it's going to turn out but it's the HOW that makes the ending spectacular.
    I highly recommend this book.

    Story
    "WOW!! A great thriller."

    Thanks to a very recent review of one of the Audible listeners I follow I purchased this book. It blew me away! Nick Hunter is an ex-Marine sniper no one should want to cross, yet someone killed his sniper spotter in Afghanistan and then murdered his wife. He is out for retribution and will kill anyone who gets in his way. There is lots of action and suspense.

    Jay Snyder narrates and does a superb job.

    VERY HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!

    "Mediocre, Its just ok...."

    Just not that good of a book. I love spy novels, and I am ok with stretching what is possible. This just takes it too far. He killed an FBI agent(then the FBI wants to help him), and another marine all of the sudden people support him, I mean come! Honestly kind of corny too,

    Story
    "I don't understand how this book gets high ratings"
    Would you try another book from Stan R. Mitchell and/or Jay Snyder?

    Jay Snyder is a great reader, it's the Author I would never recommend.


    How would you have changed the story to make it more enjoyable?

    1. get rid of all the macho, hollywood, 80's action movie stereotyping. 2. the characters are ridiculously portrayed and every one of them exemplifies behaviors and actions that simply do not fit with who they are supposed to be. 3. the author needs to understand his subject matter better. He obviously knows little or nothing about guns, shooting, or the affects of bullets on flesh. 4. Lastly, enough with the gratuitous gore descriptions. Someone who gets shot with a rifle in the belly would not "lose a healthy amount of his guts" blown out his back.


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

    Always good to hear a book read. Kind of like watching a movie, hearing the different voice inflections and such.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The story, the actual plot is ok. But even that seems like a re-imagining of the character of Bob Lee Swagger. Distinguished sniper, leaves the military and tries to live a normal life, then the government sets him up, tries to get him killed, he fights back. Sound familiar?


    Any additional comments?

    God I miss Vince Flynn. This author described the flinch of a civilian with no experience with guns listening to a hunting rifle going off inside of a van as "jumping like a boy scout when hearing an unfamiliar sound around a campfire after hearing a scary story." Seriously? Just say he jumped at the shot. Like anyone would. SPOILER ALERT: and how about a hint that our Hero in this story is little more than a sociopath murderer? Really? strangling innocent civilians and murdering FBI agents for simply doing their job? And then the LIBERAL, anti-military, reporter just decides to hop on the bandwagon and be an accessory to murder? And, by the way, if anyone is wondering, you cannot "get used to" a new rifle scope inside of a hotel room and you don't "turn a rangefinder" on top of the scope to adjust for elevation. You turn a turret. A range finder is an entirely separate piece of equipment. I rarely stop listening mid-book, but I couldn't finish this one. The primary protagonist and antagonists are apparently both bumbling idiots who both make rookie mistakes over and over again and chastise themselves but never correct their behavior. And this is just in the first half of the book that I listened to. Do yourself a favor, read the MItch Rapp series or the Scott Harvath series. And if you need more, Court Gentry and Jericho Quinn.

    "Yup, it's a good conspiracy story"

    I'm not sure it matches up to Jason Bourne, but this is a very good conspiracy story of how "they" can come in, take all your data, plant false info on your computer, and condemn you to the judicial system where you have already been tried, convicted, and sentenced by media.

    Nick Woods is a good strong character to enter the genre, so I hope to see more of him. If you like this genre, this is a good addition.

    Story
    "TRY THIS OUT - you will not regret it"
    Where does Sold Out rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is right up there with Mark Greaney writing Gray Man and Clancy books.

    This is a solid start to what is an excellent series. Give the author chance to develop the character, give the story time and you'll be rewarded.

    The lead character is not like any character you're used to but by the end of the book you will want more and you'll want to share a beer with the guy.

    The pacing is fast, no unnecessary verbiage. This is definitely an action book but it doesn't rely on overly graphic fight scenes or language.

    Expect to see a LOT from this author in the coming years.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Well, the lead, of course!


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I cannot reveal any scene without potentially spoiling the story.


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

    This isn't your Dad's action movie.

    "I read book 2 first...didn't matter"

    I think it's time to discover a new plot line that goes beyond soldiers come home from a war zone with some kind of mental problem, but when an toons are required he suddenly becomes a genius war analyst.
    The stpry is well done and exciting start to finish.. Loaded with creative ideas and adventure.
