Publisher's Summary

From the Vatican to the Swiss Alps, from Australia to the heartland of America, the two masterful operatives known as Saul and Drew are being drawn together to solve a violent riddle: Why have 10 old men been abducted from around the world?

When the agents, weary of their own covert wars, begin to investigate, they are pulled into a terrifying cycle of revenge that began in the heart of World War II - and is now forcing sons to pay for their fathers' darkest sins...

Stay away from Ralph

Can’t say much about what appeared to be an interesting and exciting book since George Ralph is the worst reader I’ve run across and I’ve been listening to recorded books for more than 1/4 century. He really must find a new line of work. It’s shocking that the producers of this book allowed him to continue after listening to him read the first few pages - dreadful.

Poor narration

The voice actors had very limited range when playing different characters. Women sound like men and everyone has the same accent, even characters from different countries. All characters had two ranges, monotone or excited and nothing in between. The written story is probably better.

More of the same

Nothing new here. Tired characters, tired story, tired narration. Once upon a time this book had a cherished place on my bookshelf - it is now on the giveaway pile.
