Publisher's Summary

When a Brazilian industrialist hires the R-Group, the world's most elite information-gathering unit to track the disappearance of his daughter - a dangerous - but quiet hunt begins. But just finding her doesn't mean all will be well. The team in Switzerland follows the leads from South America to Mexico and the Caribbean, but the data trail is leading nowhere. Sometimes the most important clues come from unlikely sources.

By chance, two members of the elite team vacationing in Mexico cross paths with Carlos and Juan's fly-by-night operation. Cloaking their "moving business" from satellite surveillance, their unique talent for relocating drug lords targeted by the Mexican authorities, along with their cash, gold, artwork and other assets, was legendary. These are Bad Boys, so-called entrepreneurs, whom even the most generous observer would question the legality of their business model.

Can the R-Group assemble the pieces of the puzzle without international consequences? Will the brothers stop running outside the law long enough to do the right thing? Can you hide from your past and still enjoy the present? Is the heiress hiding in plain sight or gone forever? And can the brothers rein in their contempt for societal rules and leave behind the sweet deals long enough to save a life?

The Enigma Rising continues the award-winning Breakfield and Burkey's series, overcoming opportunistic cyber-crime in the high-stakes world of information brokering in the 21st century. With its strong cast of characters, this engaging techno-thriller of lost-and-found - and lost again - will take you on an incredible journey into the dark side of technology.

    "Charming characters full of intrigue"

    I loved the charm and language of Carlos and Juan. Coming from such notorious characters made it even more evident. Well-written, lots of twists and turns throughout.

    The narrator did an excellent job with different voices so you could keep track of the characters.

    "A good followup to the first with few surprises"

    This book continued along the trajectory of the first, with the same pacing issues and loose plot. It was still a highly entertaining read... sort of a cyberthriller lite? The narrator did an excellent job and the story was easy to follow.

    Once again the sex scenes, although coming later in this book than the last one, were intensely descriptive and thorough. Not any source of disturbance personally but in a narrative of this type that sort of detail seems very out of place. Like the puppet lovemaking scene in Team America: World Police. Just way too detailed.

    The story itself was good although predictable and a little plodding. You realized about a quarter of the way through the book how things were going to play out and got very few surprises along the way.

    All in all I would recommend this to those who enjoyed the first book and who are looking for an easy listening modern hacking adventure/thriller.

    "Leaves you wanting more!"

    Book two in the Enigma series is just as entertaining as The Enigma Factor. One again the cyber hackers are on the hunt. This time for a missing woman AND several missing drug lords. A challenge certainly, but one that brings surprises to the team when both cases overlap.

    It’s a terrific, fast paced novel with plenty of twists that keep the reader glued to the book. The audiobook is very well done with very good narration. That means the pacing was just right, and the voice variation effective.

    You can read this as a stand alone, but you will enjoy the first book in the series if you are able to listen to it first. Starting at the beginning of the series is always a pleasure, so you can see how the different characters came to join the team known as The R Group.

    I was provided a copy of the audiobook by the publisher, producer, or author. You can read my complete review at Mystery Suspense Reviews.

    You will enjoy this one!

    "Action-packed thriller"

    This is a fairly complex, action-packed thriller with reasonably believable characters. Some of the actions and behaviors of the characters stretch credulity a bit and are rather predictable, but admittedly, there are a couple of very well written sex scenes.

    Derek Shoales delivers an excellent performance, giving distinctive voices to the characters. His accents aren't always perfectly accurate, but they serve their purpose well.

    The ending seems to be a major setup for the next book in the series -- a practice I abhor -- but it's not a cliffhanger, thankfully. I'm looking forward to the next book in the series.

    "An awesome series that I cannot wait for"

    ABR Reviewer's Choice Award Winner

    The R-Group finds themselves immersed in major cyber activity in Mexico and the Caribbean along with tracking down the daughter of rich and powerful Brazilian industrialist.  The trail for the missing daughter becomes enmeshed with the father’s worse nightmare - drug lords, drug money and pornography.  Will the R-Group find and reunite the daughter with her father?  Will they be able to find and fix everything they need to without starting an international incident?

    Jacob and Petra’s return with Otto is fast, fun and exciting.  Charles Breakfield and Roxanne Burkey provides a deeper look into these characters as well as introducing us to more of the R-Group.  While the R-Group still seems somewhat of a mystery, we are given more in-depth character development than before.  The introduction of other R-Group members and potential ones is both satisfying and enlightening.

    Breakfield and Burkey give their listeners a lot of moving parts that somehow come together throughout the book in a logical and realistic manner.   The dialog is well-developed and the action is non-stop.

    Be prepared to set aside all 10 hours in one sitting, because you will NOT be able to turn this one off.  There are several “aha” moments and many “oh no!” ones as well.  The breadth and skill level of the R-Group is overwhelming and scary.

    I enjoy thrillers but this is much more … thrills, action, the edge of your seat suspense with a touch of romance and humanity.  An awesome series that I cannot wait to see where it goes next!

    The narrator, Derek Shoales, owns not only the characters but the entire book as well.  His performance was solid and enthralling.  His accents and female voices were top-notch.

    The authors and narrator together will captivate the listener until the end.

    There were no issues with quality or production of this audiobook.

    "fantastic reading! "

    I thought t h e narration was really good, applying accents and pitch to segment the characters.

    being in IT, I thought the technical aspects were spot on. the level of detail was enough to carry the motion, but would not overwhelm a non-tech.

    this being only my second in the series, I'm looking forward to the next!!

    give it a go, it's enjoyable reading (listening), for sure!!
