Publisher's summary

An action, suspense, and espionage, spy thriller

For almost a half century, the KGB kept secret the most devastating political plot the Soviets have ever evolved. It began in a French farmhouse in 1947, and lay dormant until the Cold War ended. Then in an election year, a Russian sleeper agent initiates the Sokova Convention to take control of the United States.

In a safe house in France, in 1947, a Russian KGB Agent enters and kills a master OSS agent and his wife during childbirth and kidnaps their infant son. The infant is rescued moments before the KGB agent can leave France. Every trace of this horrendous act is destroyed and no record of the kidnapping exist.

Decades later, a KGB sleeper-agent discovers a super-secret file detailing a decades old plot to control the White House and is determined to reveal his discovery - the CIA sleeper agent, embedded in the KGB, is killed before he can complete the delivery to his CIA handler. The sleeper-agent lives long enough to warn CIA agent Kevin Chapin about a powerful mole in the American Government and how the mole's role in the upcoming presidential elections are the key, and unless he can expose the dark secret, the ruthless enemies of our country will stop at nothing to seize control of the United States.....

The Manchurian Candidate Redeaux?

I really enjoyed this listen. Although I did wonder if the story would be able to hold my interest for 14-hours, it turned out that the book seemed to fly by. Interesting premise and intrigue as espionage at its highest possible levels is unfolded throughout the story. Set in pretty much present day, it has it's roots in years after WWII and wreaks of the Cold War us versus them mentality between the CIA and KGB.

The characters are well formed with plenty of backstory on the key players. As the plot unfolds the interrelations of the characters is what makes the story really work. Politics, friendships, killing, love, and betrayal are intermingled throughout. The action and intrigue kept my attention and even with all the double agents and globetrotting that takes place, I could not recall and significant instances where the story-line wasn't neatly tied off; the listener is left with no loose ends. Even towards the final quarter of the book, when one gets a pretty good idea of what the ending is going to look like, the final conclusion is in doubt up until the closing minutes. Seriously, the ending could have gone is several different directions, but enough said about that.

I found the narration to be well done; complete with European and Russian accents used appropriately. Even in some of the most frantic scenes the narrator's voice remained cool, calm and collect as a top espionage agent would have to behave in order to survive in his line of field work.

I would highly recommend this listen to anyone that is into international espionage stories as it is well worth the price of a credit and the time required for the listen. A review copy audiobook was provided by the author, narrator, or publisher at no cost in return for this unbiased review. My hope is that this review helps in your decision to obtain this book.

Boring

BOOK REVIEW........
i found this story to be boring. Even what action there is in it just wasn't exciting to me at all. I think I like watching this type of stories better then reading them.

NARRATOR REVIEW......
The narrator was just okay. Maybe if he would have sounded more intense. Put more feeling behind it. I don't know it was just lacking something
