Publisher's Summary

For the President of the United States, the daily horror of life in West Darfur, Sudan’s anarchic killing fields, just hit heartbreakingly close to home. His beloved niece Lily, a nurse caring for refugees in the war-torn region, has been targeted and savagely murdered by a corps of Janjaweed, fearsome government-backed militiamen.

The rash and vicious killing is a clear provocation, but any response will seriously destabilize the already teetering region and threaten the security of the entire world. With the situation too explosive for diplomatic or military solutions, yet with the President and the public thirsting for revenge, America is out of options. Except one: Ryan Kealey.

Kealey, ex-Special Forces, former CIA, and unrivaled counterterrorism expert, has been central to the war on terror for over a decade. But he’s finished trying to save the world. After the Agency hung him out to dry - and let his lover die - it was easy for him to turn his back. They had nothing he wanted. Until now. For the government has revealed its trump card, the one thing Kealey will risk everything for.

Once back in the fold, Kealey’s pursuit of Lily’s killers unearths secrets and betrayals that shock even his war-tempered sensibilities and leave him with no one to trust. On the lawless streets of Sudan, and at the highest levels of the American government, shadowy forces ignite a conflagration with unknowable global consequences. Brimming with intrigue and danger, The Exile pulses with high-stakes gamble after gamble, as one man navigates a tenuous web of international relations that could collapse at any moment.

One of my least favorite titles

Very hard to follow story line. Great beginning but after that it went downhill and I lost interest.

God Awful!!

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Half the time.

Has The Exile turned you off from other books in this genre?

NO

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He didn't.

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

Loved the previous books.. I liked the main character. Too bad he wasn't in it for 80% of the book.

Any additional comments?

He wrote like he was being paid per word. The over explanation of every facet of the story was ridiculous! Sadly, I think this was the last Ryan Kealy for a while.
