Publisher's Summary

While President Abigail Clarke attends a summit in Paris, an unknown enemy makes a brazen attempt on her life, inflicting horrific losses on her protection detail. Plunged into a battle beyond anything they could have trained for, Secret Service agents Rebecca Reid and David Stone must find a way to keep the president alive. The attackers have vast resources and would sacrifice everything for a devastating blow against America. The agents must be willing to do no less.

Great Book, and a nice new hero!

What made the experience of listening to The Paris Protection the most enjoyable?

I chose this book because Dick Hill was the narrator. I always enjoy his narration, and was pleasantly surprised that the story was really good.

What was one of the most memorable moments of The Paris Protection?

I don't know if there is just one moment. I enjoyed the flow of the book with events unfolding and flashbacks.

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

Yes, and I actually choose books that he narrates. Love his narration and this one doesn't disappoint.

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

yes

Any additional comments?

I am looking forward to another book from this author. Is this a new series?

Found a New Author!

I came across a recommendation for this book from another Audible reader's review that I respect. I am a huge fan of Brad Thor, Lee Child, etc. The problem is I finish each new book and then have a long wait for the next, so I'm constantly looking for new authors. Most I find are mediocre and simply fill the time. I am excited to say this book far exceeded my expectations. It was full of action from the first page and you could feel the tension the characters were experiencing. I also loved that one of the main characters was female, without much information given about her appearance but the focus was on her abilities! I will definitely be adding Devore to my list of must read authors!

Good, but wordy

Great book, but a bit wordy at times. Could have been an hour shorter and then would have been 5 star.

Excellent story, not my favorite narrator

I'll not go in to too much detail on the story. I liked it. I know some former agents including one agent that the author mentioned.

I think the author's treatment of the female agent is a little insulting, particularly compared to his treatment of the men, though he permitted her to be a good agent, he had to make her a stereotypical 'girly' type - which I just don't agree with.

The overall story though, I like.

The narrator is my least favorite of all audio book narrators I've heard. His voice is ok, but it seems as if he's got an issue with always being out of breath, for almost every sentence. It was distracting for me.

Solid 4 Stars but Not 5

The story is well told with enough character development that the listening/reader becomes involved in the outcome. Lots of action, good detail. But there are some flaws too big to ignore hence only 4 stars. (a) it was clear why what had turned the lead terrorist into a terrorist (b) too much Hannibal - enough already (c) the ending just didn't work for me (Rebecca leaving David, Rebecca leading the detail with virtually no recovery time, the mystery man with the cane).

Good read

Though Mr. Devore's writing (at least, in this book) is frustratingly pedantic, I was eager for the story to end, and that's evidence of how suspenseful it was. The story covered only a few hours, but I bit my nails all the way through. I appreciated the strong female protagonist and the fact that even the bad guys had credible backstories. As a history buff, I didn't dislike the Hannibal stories, but they were often distracting. That said, I would recommend the book.

Returned it

The author gets so sidetracked with speeches and overly explaining the tiniest of details that when, after a few chapters in and the main catalyst to the story still hadn't occurred, I returned it. The narration was also less than enjoyable; over the top style and volume that would be better suited to the stage than listening to with headphones on.

Dick Hill destroyed this book !! he needs to go

The seemingly endless whining and incapablness of the female secret service agent is pathetic!! Makes it difficult to finish.
