Publisher's Summary

There are eight words Meg Moore has never been able to forget: the United States refuses to negotiate with terrorists. But what was merely a chilling warning when she worked as a translator in a European embassy now spells out a potential death sentence for her daughter and grandmother, who have been kidnapped by a lethal group called the Extremists. Meg has to act - and quickly. Going against everything she was taught, she will now do anything to meet their unspeakable demands; anything - even kill - to save her child.

When Navy SEAL lieutenant, junior grade, John Nilsson is summoned to Washington, DC, by the FBI to help negotiate a hostage situation, the last person he expects to see holding a foreign ambassador at gunpoint is Meg. He hasn't seen her in years, but he's never forgotten how it feels to hold her in his arms. John could lose his career if he helps her escape. She will lose her life if he doesn't.

oh, meg...

i have enjoyed all of brockmann's books thus far. what made this book my least favorite is Meg. she annoyed me to the point where i had to speed up the story towards the end.
that being said, i am thankful for and did enjoy Alyssa's and Eve's stories.

Defiant Hero

I enjoyed hearing this novel as much as I liked reading it when it came out in paperback. Brockmann's stories are always good.

Too much back and forth

Where does The Defiant Hero rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

In the middle

Have you listened to any of Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

Yes. The performance is very good.

Any additional comments?

The author tends to go back in history, then into the present, then into history, then into the present. This goes on and on throughout the book. It really distracts from the storyline.

good book

This was a good addition to the Troubleshooters series. Was it one of my favorites? No. It was good though. What kept it from being one of my favorites was for me Meg wasn't very likeable. I loved Eve's story and Sam and Alyssa's story. I look forward to reading the rest of Sam and Alyssa's story.

Not her best...

I love the mix of adrenaline, sex, suspense and mystery she normally has in this series, it just wasn't in THIS book.

As always Patrick and Melanie do a wonderful job.

Pick a Story!!

Would you try another book from Suzanne Brockmann and/or Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ?

Doubtful

Pick a story and tell it. There's like 3 within this darn book.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Male narrator is way wrong.

Disappointed....totally! These are lamest Navy seals ever!<br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/><br/>
