Publisher's Summary

To prevent a war in Asia - one that could quickly spread to the rest of the world - Paul Janson and Jessica Kincaid must learn the truth behind a young woman's murder...

Prominent US Senator James Wyckoff hires former government agents-turned-private security consultants Janson and Kincaid to locate his teenage son Gregory. Gregory's girlfriend Lynell has been found strangled in a Seoul hotel, and Gregory has fled the city to avoid being arrested for the crime. But Senator Wyckoff insists that his son is innocent, suggesting that Lynell, who was a translator, may have been murdered because of something she overheard at a recent international conference. And when Janson and Kincaid realize they're being hunted by an assassin, they suspect that this crime - and the cover-up - were orchestrated by a shadowy unit of the US State Department as part of a larger plot to provoke violence between North and South Korea.

Disappointing for this series

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

The previous narrator and previous author

What was most disappointing about Douglas Corleone’s story?

The new author changed the characters and wrote a disappointing story line.

What didn’t you like about Kevin T. Collins’s performance?

The narrator couldn't have been more boring, it was hard to distinguish between characters, and he dropped all accents from the previous stories.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

Disappointment. The previous stories and narrator were great, and I couldn't wait to continue listening. I almost dropped this story 3 times because it was so bad.

Terrible narration

I can’t rate the story because the narration was so plodding and boring I returned the title to Audible.

Complete Sci-fi

This book is by far the step child of the Janson series.

The performance is hard to take - the plot is complete sci-fi - I don’t recommend.

story lackluster, reader didn't fit characters

Loved the previous Jansen books. This story line was less developed, and the reader didn't fit the characters at. The reader made Jansen sound younger, weaker, and less confident.

Narration did not match the quality of the writing

Narration did not match the quality of the writing. great story, but the narrator kinda made it feel like a high school reading in drama class. i liked it overall, but i should have loved it.

Don’t waste your time

I don’t believe Robert Ludlum would want to be associated with this book. Aside from the many errors such as the plane was traveling at 49,000 “miles” above the ocean it was full of cliches. If you can get by the writing you have to listen to Kevin Collins who sounded like a high school student trying out for a dramatic role in the school play. Paul Janson deserved better.

Time Warp read by a Shatner protege

Somehow, Paul Janson, Vietnam war SEAL/POW has gotten younger and became an Afghan POW.

The voice actor has taken a page from the William Shatner school of excessive pauses.

if you were to do a voice to text on this performance, you'd need a truckload of comma's delivered.

Oh, and for the first time in the series, Paul Janson suddenly has debilitating claustrophobia????

He has an amazing private jet that can fly at 35,000 miles above sea level. WTF?
