Publisher's Summary

In the tradition of bestsellers by Robert Ludlum and Vince Flynn, Termination Orders introduces Dan Morgan, a retired black-ops agent who must return to duty to thwart a deadly international conspiracy.

Once a trained killer for the CIA, Dan Morgan has built a new life for himself. But when he receives a desperate plea from his former black-ops partner - reportedly killed in a foreign battle zone - he flies in to help. It should be a routine mission, extracting a human asset from the region, but it’s not - it’s an ambush. Now Morgan is running for his life, with crucial evidence in his possession. With his contacts dead and his family in danger, Morgan must take on a full-scale conspiracy in the highest echelons of a vast global network that plays by its own rules.

Leo J. Maloney spent over thirty-five years in black ops, accepting highly secretive missions that would put him in the most dangerous hot spots in the world. Since leaving that career, he has had the opportunity to try his hand at acting in independent films and television commercials. He has ten movies to his credit, both as an actor and behind the camera as a producer, technical advisor, and assistant director.

“For fans of spy thrillers seeking a bit of realism mixed into their novels, Termination Orders will prove to be an excellent and recommended pick.”(Midwest Book Reviews)

Not entertaining

If this book were a movie would you go see it?

No

Any additional comments?

There was nothing unique about this book. The book was very perdictable and was a bore to listen to in my car. I had to make myself listen to the entire book which is a first for me with an Audible.

Termination of the Credit

So I did!. By shear will alone I got through Part 1. These guys sounded like they were at a tea party for 6 year old girls. Not only the silly,and corny remarks but the 'voices' John Pruden gave them were absolutely pathic. If you can stay to The End, I say " Hail Fellow well met"

Pure action begining to end

What did you love best about Termination Orders?

This book held my attention and was an adrenaline rush all the way through.

What did you like best about this story?

The sory line was easy to follow and held your interest.

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

I have not listened to this narator before however look forward to the next time I hear him.

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

The new Rambo with a twist.

Any additional comments?

Although the story is out there a bit and in real life probably couldn't happen like that, it is fiction and certainly extremely entertaining. Several times was parked and continued to listen because could not stop. This is what I look for in an audio book; I am hoping the sequel is as good!

Was great until...

Voice acting is great. The first two thirds of the book were good. But the whole thing came off the rails at the warehouse outside of DC in chapter 33. First, I get why the data could not be electronically sent out of Afghanistan, but once they got to America they could have sent the intel anywhere. In chapter 33 our hero takes a stupid risk to "go and see" who a person they tailed was meeting with, when they could have just sat patiently and waited until he came out. Then they could have sent the data on the memory card to every single news paper in America and the story would be over. But there was 4 hours of obligatory torture, betrayal, plot twists and brushes with death left in the book, all over obtaining and getting something into the "right" hands that could have already been copied 1000 times and put into the mail to 1000 different news organizations.
