Publisher's Summary

Nothing and no one can stop assassin Nathan Stone.

When black-ops asset Nathan Stone took out the heads of the Commission, a secret deep-state organization, he thought he’d destroyed them for good. Now he’s gone off the grid, trying to get as far away from his past as possible. But the Commission isn’t done with him yet.

Lying low in a Miami bar, Stone knows something’s up when an alluring actress strikes up a conversation with him. His suspicions are correct. The Commission is hot on his trail, and Stone is soon forced to run deep into the heart of the Everglades with the terrified woman as his hostage. He’s the Commission’s number one target - and this time nothing will stop them from eliminating him.

But Nathan Stone is no ordinary target. The crew of mercenary assassins on his heels have no idea what’s in store for them on the River of Grass. Because the hunt is on, and they picked the wrong prey.

Fast paced Action all the way...

I am really enjoying the Nathan Stone series by J B Turner. This is the third book in the series, I would suggest listening to these in the order they were written. They can be listened to as stand alone books but I think the listener would benefit more from a continuous story.
Once again the Commission (Black Ops Unit) is targeting Stone who had fallen out of grace with the higher ups. And once again he has the Commission in his sights. They have planned out an intricate take down that almost works but Stone sees through it at the last minute. Stone goes on the run taking with him a woman who resembles his sister. She had been hired to seduce him, now a hostage who doesn't realize that Nathan is trying to save her life and so she fights him every step of the way. The ending was quite a surprise as Nathan does something unexpected and kind.
Jeffrey Kafer does an outstanding job narrating.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

This book disappointing in both story and the characters.

There was no depth to the this story. The female character whined through the entire book. It felt like I kept hearing the same chapters over and over because the author just kept repeating the same phrases.

Disappointing

You can basically take chapters 12-45 and repeat: "Are you going to kill me?" "Didn't you listen to what I said?" "Please let me go." "I'm trying to save you." This was a real disappointment after the first two books. There was zero story line.

story felt like a range of chapters from the...

the middle of a book. It started from a mediocre place and stayed there the whole way with a finish that wasn't an end. I guess this is a product of authors on Amazon selling a series not a complete book. k I'll nda like a season of a television show.

Explicit Content!

I didn't enjoy it there was entirely too much profanity! There needs to be a language content rating.

Don’t want the story to end

J.B.Turner is one of the best writers around. His books are gritty, action packed, and full of unforgettable and unredeemable characters. This one is no different. Get ready for an thrilling ride. It’s even better as an Audible book.

Good story but.......

This story has a lot of actions but the way the author keeps using the same words over and over made the characters seem very stupid. .It seem like the author was simply trying to up the word count.

Horrible..

😞 One of the worst books I've ever read. Beatrice said Please, don't kill me, or something similar to it, 22 times, no matter how many times Nathan told her he wasn't going to hurt her. And 21 times he told her to "focus" every time she became hysterical. And they used the word "f**k" 182 times. AND the words they used were incredibly stupid and repetitive. No idea how this book ever got published.

At least he didn't laugh when he killed an innocent man, like he did in the first book. That should have told me something about his writing, or lack thereof, in the Nathan Stone stories.

As for the narrator: No way I would ever want to listen to Jeffrey Kafer again. Everyone sounds exactly alike, men and women, and he has no emotions at all. I don't know how he could ever get more than 1 star.

Enjoyed But......

I just discovered JB Turner loved the books but good Lord the cursing in this book through me off. It wss crazy, the female character has to be up there as one of the annoying ones, ever. She cursed in almost every other sentence. Be prepared.

Unbelievably boring and repetitious!

I have enjoyed other books by J.B. Turner, so when I saw 3 new books by him I immediately purchased all three in the series. Somehow, I listened to this one (the third book) first. I will not be listening to the other two books in the series. This book was so unbelievably boring and repetitious that I honestly fell asleep listening to it. When I woke up, I was two hours further into the book and the dialogue was the same idiotic dialogue! That is, it was “Don’t kill me. Are you going to kill me? I want to die! You’re killing again!” from the female. The main character’s dialogue was “I’m not going to kill you. If you don’t...I’m going to kill you.” Then he goes around killing people willy nilly and not in a particularly interesting or skillful way or for any real reason. Good grief!

Honestly, I couldn’t have cared less about either character and feel it would have been a better book if they had both been killed off in the first chapter! Okay, then there wouldn’t have been a book, but then I wouldn’t have had so much time sucked away on what was a truly unpleasant experience.

Spoiler Alert: To say there was no logical plot to this story is putting it mildly. The main character apparently had his face cosmetically changed, something that is only touched on in passing, so I have no idea why or if this was his idea or not. Then he is in a bar, apparently after checking up on his sister who is in a mental institution. We don’t get any rhyme or reason why this is even brought up, except to explain why he is in that bar. Then someone sends this ditzy broad to lure him into a trap, which he magically figures out because she looks like his sister. (Um, I’m not a man, but I hardly think if I were a man that I would turned on by someone who looks like my sister! And that was apparently the point of this woman being sent there.) Lots of running ensues, they somehow end up in the Florida everglades, which the main character for some inexplicable reason knows well. A gazillion mosquitoes bite her, but not him.. More running. Then after saying they can’t go back to Miami because they will be found and killed (and that’s why they are in the everglades), they go back to Miami! He kills the ones chasing him back at the same bar this all started. The end.

Not the polished writing we've come to expect

I've been madly reading / listening to everything by JB Turner this past month since happening upon the first Reznik book. This series has been a struggle compared to the more human/2-dimensional Reznik thrillers, but I liked the premise this book offered with Stone showing some relatable vulnerability at long last.
Then along came the foul mouthed actress, given roughly 4 lines of dialogue which she repeated over and over and over and over until I was literally screaming at the assassin to go back to his 1-dimensional purpose and just shoot her as she feared he would! Yeeeessh!
Apart from the character issues, the story felt a bit done-on-the-fly, again nothing like the Reznik books I'd happily compare to Baldacci's well-plotted Camel Club series.
A bit of a disappointment, but I'd still grab up the next book by this author - confident this was just an anomaly!
