Publisher's Summary

Thirteen-year-old Mylee is killed during a slave auction, while five other young Asian girls flee from the men who profit from selling them as slaves in the ballroom of an upscale San Francisco hotel. Inspector Kate Dawson is called to investigate the heinous crime.

From what appears to be the simple murder of a sex worker, she follows the clues to human trafficking, organ harvesting, and ultimately the Asian sex trade. Then, as the date of the G-20 Summit in San Francisco draws closer, Dawson struggles to connect the lives of five young Asian women, who have presumably disappeared in Chinatown, with that of the Morag Tong, an ancient guild of assassins, a mad North Korean General’s master plan of bringing about economic chaos in the West, and his nuclear submarine playing hide-and-go-seek with fishermen in the Bay.

As the world’s leaders and economists converge on the annual summit, Dawson must prevent terror from breaking out at the G-20. Her only clue, a commercial jingle which keeps running through her head she cannot identify....

Excellent Book--Couldn't Put It Down

I really enjoyed this latest outing in the Kate Dawson thriller series. I liked but wasn't all that crazy about several novels on the New York Times Best Seller list, so I sought out John Flynn's Terror at G-20, a Kate Dawson thriller. Unlike the NY Times' picks, Flynn's mystery thrillers are consistently good, often great, with outstanding characters, a credible plot, and action-adventure beyond compare. I listened to the retail sample, and decided that I'd download the last book in this series. This one more than lived up to my expectations. There were a couple of clues in the book I figured out before Inspector Dawson, but then discovered later how wrong I was. Then, when I was halfway through, I was pretty sure I had figured out the bulk of the mystery only to have the rug pulled out under my feet. And then, about three-quarters of the way through, I was certain I had figured out the main reason why the Asians girls had been brought to the United States, and again, I was wrong! So all of that is to say that there were a lot of twists and turns along the way, and I found I just could not put this book down until I got to the end, which featured several surprises. This book deserves 5-stars, and is a really good book. As an aside, I also want to say that I love it when an author as popular and successful as Flynn doesn't get complacent after he's made it big. He keeps working hard for his fans. Can't wait for the next book in this series!

Action packed

Engaging.
Fast aced.
An easy listen... there is plot but not super intricate. More like brain candy for listening during a drive or housework.

Much better than the cover art might make you believe!

I received this audiobook for free in exchange for a review.

Shocking & Exceptional

The "terror" at the G-20 Conference in San Francisco is very real. A North Korean General plans to destroy the annual conference in order to bring out economic chaos in the West. His weapons are five women who have been smuggled into the United States as part of some sex-trafficking operation. The Stakes are high, and with a strike by the San Francisco police taking place, Kate Dawson has to handle things pretty much on her own. But if you are a fan of the Kate Dawson thrillers like me then you know already that this is how Kate likes to operate: ON HER OWN. The plot of this novel is very real, seemingly stripped from the New York Times, and naturally it is very real for Kate. I won't say much more because the book is a real treat from beginning to end. Suffice it to say, I really enjoyed the story, and compare it favorably with the other audio books of its kind. Beware of the shocking beginning. Enjoy!

Fabulous Book! Suspenseful!

I've enjoyed all of the Kate Dawson books, and this one is exceptional. Inspector Dawson is up against a sex-trafficking cabal, and if she is not able to stop them, then the latest G-20 Conference will suffer. Fabulous Book. Very Suspenseful.

Great Novel...Fair Narration

I have followed John Flynn's Kate Dawson thriller series since the first book, Intimate Bondage. He does a great job developing his protagonist, homicide detective Kate Dawson. Over the course of Flynn's five novels, she develops into an outstanding police detective from a wet-behind-the-ears Rookie. In this new thriller, she is up against a North Korean's general plot to destroy the G-20 conference in San Francisco, and the subplot is all about the evils of human trafficking. Somehow these divergent storylines merge into one plot. To say more would be to ruin the novel for you, which I would rate as one of the best in the series. My biggest problem with this new audio book is Courtney Shelly's narration. Throughout most of the book, she is rather flat, with occasional glimpses of greatness. Flynn has had two very outstanding narrators to this point in his series, and one so=so narrator. Shelly is fair, and should have been so much better.

Thriller

If you like the previous books in this series you will like this one as well although it reads just fine as a stand alone novel. The prologue is fairly cringeworthy so get a chapter or two past it before you decide if you like the book. Well written and developed characters and a better than average plot for this type of thriller.
Language, themes, and sexual content is definitely for adults.
Narrator was surprisingly good. There was just enough difference in the character’s voices to be interesting but without “doing voices” which can sometimes be tough to listen to. No bad word pronunciations or obvious edits - voice and delivery are very smooth. Very well done.
