Publisher's Summary

James R. Hannibal - a veteran combat pilot with Top Secret clearance from the U.S. government - comes an electrifying high-tech thriller in the great tradition of Tom Clancy…
Over ten years ago, Air Force major Nick Baron was part of a failed special ops mission that left a B-2 stealth bomber at the bottom of the Persian Gulf. Now, leading his men - the Triple Seven Chase team - Baron must find the bomber and dispose of it for good before any unfriendly nation can steal the onboard technology for its own purposes. But as the team embarks on its mission, there are greater dangers waiting.
When the CIA intercepts a call signal from an operative in China long thought dead, the Triple Seven Chase team is given the perilous task of retrieving the lone soldier from deep within the Chinese wilderness. There is only one plane for such a dangerous mission: the Shadow Catcher, a plane with capabilities beyond anything that has ever flown.
What Baron and his men don’t know is that the enemy is already among them - and that the Shadow Catcher itself may be the ultimate prize.

Fun book

What did you love best about Shadow Catcher?

I thought it was a fun book that explored the concept of global conflict without a typical egocentric government bias.


What do you think the narrator could have done better?

I normally love Dick Hill, he is one of my favorites, but in this book his narration was slow and choppy. I'm not positive, but he may have had a difficult time with certain accents, as he definitely talks slower than normal with certain characters. Either way, I felt that his overall narration was needlessly slow and lacking the level of emotion I expect from this caliber of narrator.


Any additional comments?

Although the book was well written, I would have liked to see more character death and more twists and turns. Its extremely easy to see in advance where the story will end up, but it is still a fun listen.

Good book!

Pros:
Clever plot with unexpected twists
Reader does good job with assorted voices
Clean - don't have to listen to foul language while enjoying book

Cons:
Really just one, and I enjoyed the book anyway ... but it seemed a bit over overkill to me how recalcitrant and moody and unpleasant nick was throughout the book. Began to wear me out.

I recommend this book
