Publisher's Summary

Meet Brady Hawk.

Former Navy SEAL. Former Peace Corps worker. Current blacks ops assassin.

To those with the highest security clearance, it's a line item known only as Project X. But to the half-dozen agents and personnel working for it, it's known as Firestorm, a black ops group so dark that the US president doesn't even know about them yet. And no agent is as skilled as Brady Hawk.

This box set includes First Strike, Deep Cover, and Point of Impact.

Almost an anti-drone rant

Ok, I get it, Paterson hates the use of drones in the war on terrorism. The first book beats you over the head with his paradigm. Please say that up front so readers or listeners can make an informed decision prior to purchasing the book.

Terrible. :(

Awful writing, equally awful narration. It’s difficult to believe this was published. No sophistication and not enough writing skill to pull you into the story.

Don't Bother

The stories lack depth and detail. Problems are solved 'instantly' without a great deal of development, tension, or detail. We are told about the characters rather than letting their personalities and details unfold through actions. Simple story telling yet confusing story line. And stories are repetitive. Protagonist is sent on mission to save the world yet he spends a good bit of time 'black' with no support, while at least two other story lines are running back home. the narrator is ok. The attempt to do accents at times sound Irish. I turned the series off half way through the second book and went looking for something else to listen to. If you like a story rich in detail, character development try Brad Taylonr's Pike Logan, Jack Coughlin's Kyle Swanson,Brian Haig and Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp.

3 books of American fighting Terrorism

First Strike
Espionage in the Middle East, with one very competent spy and his handler.

Deep Cover
The recovery and provention of diamonds being passed to the extreme terrorist, who required the gems to fund their reign of terror, as well as the recovery of 4 missles, which had been also fallen into the wrong hands, were the current mission for our duo of Brady Hawk and Handler Alex.
Hawk shows his humane side, with solutions to more than his assigned missions.

Point of Impact
An attempt to murder thousands of Americans, on home soil is again thwarted by the combination of Hawk and handler Alex. The story unravels so much more than this final achievement, and needs to be read, or listened to, to understand the full story line.

I enjoyed the audio rendition of these fantastic novels. The narrator's take on the characters voices, adds another aspect to a very entertaining read.
I love the freedom audiobooks give me to read and also carry out mundane tasks, at the same time.

Dropping this series

Characters shallow. Storyline equally thin.
Narration. Best Irish Arab accent I ever heard. Waste of time.

so bad, I had to write my first rieview

Think Naked Gun/ Airplane, if they were trying to be serious. The word cliche is an understatement. Every situation, every bit of dialogue, every character, hate to say even the narration, is so predictable, it should be a lame attempt at comedy. Sadly it's not even that. I suffered through the first book, waiting for it to reveal itself as an attempt at comedy, but... no. I cant believe this was published.

There is a reason for the discount

While these books may be classified as Mystery-Thriller (Espionage), they are not in the same league as Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Daniel Silva and Mark Greaney. I had to punt one-third of the way through the first book. The characters are not well developed and there are large gaps of common sense on how they interact or work in this genre. (Espionage/Military – Tier One)

Skip them.

Weak attempt<br />

No depth, with weak attempt at genre. Could not even finish book it was so bad. Voice talent was fine, story was a flop.

Just could not bring myself to finish it!

What would have made The Brady Hawk Series, Books 1-3 better?

Better story writing and/or better narration. Pretty basic storyline, problem is that Patterson uses too many words in the back and forth of a conversation.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jack Patterson again?

I'd be hard pressed to listen to Patterson's writing again...the style is too elementary... almost mildly insulting at times.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I believe Dwight Kuhlman just tries too hard. The voices all sound forced. I paused this book to listen to another narrated by Ray Porter. Porter is a fantastic narrator. Now, returning to this Patterson book, (I'm 8 1/2 hours into this 16 1/2 hour tri-book) I've decided I cannot continue with it. I'll return it without finishing... that's very unusual for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was constantly asking myself, how much longer can I listen to this book.

Any additional comments?

Although I gave the book two stars across the board, I cannot, in good conscience, recommend either Jack Patterson nor Dwight Kuhlman
