Publisher's Summary

Former covert ops agent Tom Sexton is living quietly in rural Vermont. Running a diner with his girlfriend, Stella, he thinks that the worst he's seen, done, and suffered is finally behind him. But when a long-hidden specter from his troubled past emerges, Tom is shaken out of his safe, furtive life. With no choice but to lock and load, Tom falls back into a world where valor and violence collide...and his isn't the only life in danger.

Summoned into the ranks of top-secret intelligence, Tom is tasked with protecting a teenage girl targeted by agents of an infamous mercenary. It's a high-risk mission that will pit all his combat and espionage skills against ruthless paramilitary hit squads. Leading them is a legendary and mysterious killer for hire who's making Tom doubt everything, and everyone, he has come to believe in. Even himself.

Surrounded by enemies he can't see and allies he can no longer trust, Tom will have to face alone the fatal fury of a madman - if only to save the woman he left behind.

Lots of action, action, action and more action!

The Rogue Agent is an action packed military/espionage thriller. The plot, to degree there is one, is very weak. There are many characters none of whom are memorable because there is almost no meaningful background on the characters. There is "suspense", but it is not intense because the plot is so weak and even the main characters are so poorly developed.

I have tried to justify a higher rating for this book. But near constant killing in multiple ways with mild suspense without a recognizable plot and decent character development do not justify a higher rating. Neither does the excellent narration.

Great Character Possibilities - Can Author Deliver

Daniel Judson has developed a variety of potentially good characters - more than just the 2 apparent leads (Tom and Charlie). Can he split them and occasionally bring them back together without taking the easy way out by simply killing one or the other?

Likewise, lightly used characters like Grune could prove interesting. I look forward to seeing where Judson goes with his story and character development. In my opinion, he's off to a very good start.

Riveting Read

I was eagerly awaiting the sequel to The Temporary Agent and was not disappointed in the least. I read it when it was first published and decided to listen to The Rogue Agent when it came out. After beginning to listen and enjoy the narrator bring to life precisely and perfectly each character, I decided to add the narration to the book (The Temporary Agent) and listened, thoroughly enthralled by it more than when I just read it. The Rogue Agent further fleshed out the characters and their journeys as well as adding new characters I am eager to learn more about in the next novel (hopefully very soon). Mr. Judson writes novels that totally transport me on adventures with characters I want to know and know more about. So creative! Mr. Simonelli has become one of my all time favorite narrators; I can't imagine anyone else capturing the characters in the same way.

Elena why was she important was left too long

Elena's importance was unspecified for too long. The beginning was a bit difficult to follow
