Publisher's Summary

Jake Noble is back.... And this time, he's hunting a friend!

When Sam Gunn is accused of murdering a fellow intelligence officer in cold blood, the new CIA director charges Jake Noble with tracking her down. But Jake isn't the only one after Sam. A trio of highly trained freelancers wants Sam dead before she can blow the lid on their operation. It's a heart-pounding race against time to see who will find her first.

To clear Sam's name, Noble must pit himself against a murderous criminal organization and corrupt intelligence agents with nothing to lose. The chase culminates in an action-packed finale that will change Noble's life forever!

Decent story with the critical caveat...

Unfortunately for the listeners, the caveat is that although the basic reader's voice is tolerable and sufferable, his constant attempts to develop characters and nuances using his voice fails miserably. Picture a soprano or tenor attempting to disguise his (or her) voice to portray an alto or bass speaker. This gives virtually every character aside from the main character, a "Vinnie Goomba" voice, zapping any and all intellectual potential from even College Professors! Horrible performance ruins decent (at best) writing.

Interesting, but still not up there

Adam Verner makes the women sound unpleasant, whiny and bitchy with every upturned sentence ending. He mispronounces many words and fails at the basic French "comment allez-vous". William Miller wouldn't know a past perfect if it hit him in the head, but he does know cliches (like that one). Miller also doesn't know the verb "lie" and its forms, using "lay" and "laid" for everything. The title is good for the story, but we all know where good intentions lead. There are some good action scenes, some good use of Bic lighters (I'm going to try that at home), and some chases. But it still fails to measure up to our expectations. Sam's religiosity still jars, and it is hard to believe that she has become one of the best agents in such a short time (2 years since Jake met her). And I maintain that wanting a quickie with a virgin is not a noble desire.
