Publisher's Summary

Michael Patrick Finnigan was a New York City cop and a US Marshal who figured out that following the rules doesn't always get the job done. Katalin Fiero Dahar was a soldier, spy, and assassin for Spain, who figured out that breaking the rules doesn't always get the job done.

Together, they created St. Nicholas Salvage & Wrecking, a largely illegal bounty hunting operation based in Cyprus and working throughout Europe. Operating under the radar for the presiding judge of the International Criminal Court, they track down the worst of the world's worst.

Someone is kidnapping Middle Eastern refugee children as they flee war-torn countries and selling them into prostitution around the world. Finnigan and Fiero get the assignment to track them down and save the refugees. But when they discover that the perpetrators are a Serbian mobster - with patronage at the highest levels of the United Nations - and a battalion of the Kosovo military, the partners reach out to their "friends" to find justice, including a corrupt banker, a cadre of mercenaries, and a crew of professional thieves.

The battle to stop the mass kidnappings ranges from Belgrade and Zagreb to the Loire Valley and Milan and to the plains of Kosovo. As Finnigan and Fiero close in, the conspirators realize that the judge of the ICC is the real threat and plan an assassination. Now the partners have to save their patron and the kidnapped refugees from a rogue military force with nothing left to lose.

Monotonous narrator…

This really was a great story and I am glad I listened through to the end. There were a few obvious clichés about the characters and who they were, but there is enough interesting about them that the clichés weren’t too distracting. The story was really interesting and it honestly was a great book. Sadly I had to keep starting some chapters over because the narrator was so boring that I would get lost and realize I’ve been listening for 10 minutes and I hadn’t heard anything. Or I just fall asleep. I’m sure he’s a very nice guy and he does have a very nice voice but the reading was so droll and lacking in personality that I just kept getting sidetracked.

Different take

I enjoyed the contrast between the main characters and the unique resources they used to deal with the matter at hand.

Verdict is Out

Interesting characters. Not sure what the draw is to having the women a bad ass and a little unstable and the male the stable partner but this theme seems to be appearing more and more (e.g. Brad Taylor's Pike Logan series with the 2 Israelis). I think the series has potential we will see if Dana Haynes can enrich the characters after spending time introducing them in the first novel.

Excellent story

Enjoyed the story, the plot and the turns and twists. Narration was pretty good but accents need work. Contrary to the American ear a Scottish man's accent is very different from an Irish accent. Besides, their word usage is not the same. If the Scottish mercinary were Irish, narrator did a passable job, but he wasn't and that's what I focused on instead of paying attention to the store during that period of the book.

Good listen/Read

Great characters and wonderful narration! I really liked this program. Two main characters work wonderfully together and the story/plot got better as book progressed.

Meh…

Tried to finish but lost interest. Main characters were uninteresting… actually, I realized the whole story was uninteresting. Not worth my time trying to finish.
