Brotherhood and Others is an audio book of three Robin Monarch short stories. All 3 are quite good but Brotherhood is better than either of the others. Act of Rendition, a kidnapping story, is also quite clever. Escape Artist is the weakest of the three. For fans of Mark Sullivan's three novel Robin Monarch espionage series these are worthwhile short stories.

Mark Sullivan likes flashbacks...a LOT! AI get it, a good flashback scene enriches a story. But too much of a good thing does not make it better. If I were reading it might be different. You can see the scene change, but that is not the case when listening. If the author stayed focused on the story and didn't vomit in so much backstory, I would be inclined to add a star or two. As it is, I am afraid to purchase any of his novel length audiobooks because half of these stories are in flashbacks. That is truly unfortunate, because Robin Monarch is an interesting character. Until I find out he's writing differently, I'll have to pass on Mark Sullivan’s offerings.
