Publisher's Summary

Mark Sullivan has created a propulsive, compelling new thriller. Rogue, is one part Bourne Identity and one part Mission: Impossible, but listeners will also love the nod to Hitchcock’s It Takes a Thief. Two years ago, Robin Monarch was a top level CIA operative—perhaps the best they had when it came to black bag operations. Then one day, in the middle of an operation, with his team around him in the field, Monarch walked away, leaving his old life and friends behind without a word of explanation. Now this ex-soldier, ex-operative, and orphan with a murky past is a thief, stealing from the super-rich and has surfaced in St. Tropez. But when a complicated, high profile jewel heist goes wrong, Monarch is led into a carefully woven trap designed to force him to complete the very same mission he walked away from years ago. It will take all of his skills (as well as those of the team he burned) and all of his cunning, if Monarch is to thwart the violent and deadly goals of the very powerful cabal who will do whatever it takes to bring the very dangerous "Green Fields" technology under their control.

What other book might you compare Rogue to and why?

This reminds me of The Gray Man books. Lots of action, around the globe travel, espionage and conspiracies galore. Really good story and great start to a new series.


What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Jeff Gurner does a great job with this book. His many voices are perfect and thoroughly enjoyable.


Who was the most memorable character of Rogue and why?

Robin Monarch of course.


Any additional comments?

I was hesitant about purchasing this book. I've never heard of it or the series but it was on sale so I thought I would give it a try. So glad I did and my next purchase will be Book 2.

Great Story, great characters!

If you could sum up Rogue in three words, what would they be?

Masterful, intriguing, actionpacked.


What was one of the most memorable moments of Rogue?

There are plenty of memorable moments, but of the many I can think of, the dropping off of the one who caused the whole mess, in "el ano".


What does Jeff Gurner bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

I could listen to Gurner read the NYS vehicle and traffic law. Jeff excells at creating the voices of the characters and just has an energy about telling the story. The guy is a narrating genius.


If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

Something over dramatic like "Rogue; Thief of thieves"
