Publisher's Summary

Thomas Caine lives in the shadows. Betrayed and left for dead, he has put his past as a CIA assassin behind him. Now he lives off the grid, and hides from his dark past in the seedy underworld of Pattaya, Thailand.

But when local gangsters set him up for a crime he didn't commit, he finds himself back in the clutches of the CIA. His old masters make him an offer he can't refuse: rot in a hellish Thai prison, or accept a dangerous mission in Tokyo, Japan.

As he hunts the neon-lit city for a CIA asset's missing daughter, he quickly learns there is more to this assignment than meets the eye. Yakuza thugs, Japan's Security Bureau, and even rogue CIA operatives all stand between him and his objective.

And looming in the shadows is Tokyo Black, a right-wing terrorist cult whose members demonstrate their loyalty by burning their yakuza tattoos from their skin. Can Thomas Caine defeat this fanatical enemy, before they ignite an international conflict that kills thousands?

    "Audio"

    I always enjoy this narrator but the audio would be loud then soft. I listen to books to relax. It was not his narration it was the quality of the audio

    "Book could use a better narrator..."
    Would you consider the audio edition of Tokyo Black to be better than the print version?

    I didn't read the printed version but I think I will.


    Did Jonathan Davis do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    No I don't think he did. I thought he was a little monotone. I found myself drifting and having to rewind more than once and it was not because of the story.


    Any additional comments?

    The story itself is an excellent espionage thriller and I have been looking forward to this being released on Audible but I sure wish someone had stuck with the original narrator. There is plenty of action and a shocking ending. I know there is another book in this series and I am hoping it will make it to Audible with a different narrator.
    I would HIGHLY RECOMMEND the printed version.
    If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
    Thank You.

    "Good story ruined by over preformed narration"

    I've found Jonathan Davis to be an excellent narrator in the past. He totally ruined this book by drastically increasing his voice volume when reading the emotional dialog or describing emotional situations. I had to change the volume hundreds of times while listening to Tokyo Black. I detest this sort of narration because the volume in almost never comfortable. A good narrator can express dialog emotion without screaming. I'll return this book but will attempt to listen to Red Phoenix, the next book in the series which is already in my Audible library.

    "Tourists Comic book"
    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Teenage boys


    Would you ever listen to anything by Andrew Warren again?

    No


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    At least he spoke English.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tokyo Black?

    Just about everything


    Any additional comments?

    I stopped reading this book after about two hours. I couldnt take anymore. The plot seems to be based in Tokyo because the author once went there as a tourist. The principal European characters are cardboard cutouts. The Japanese characters are cartoons. There is a lot of violence but it is so implausible that it is not even amusing.
