A Deadly Distance, Book 2 in the Jack Noble series, is an interesting suspense mystery. The series is yet another case of an ex-elite military man now working for a super secret government agency without a name. It is better than some but worse thanothers of the genre. It is what I call good listening when I do not have 5 star mystery thrillers available. The series books have good plots, lots of action, suspense, and a likable protagonist. Narration is excellent.

The narrator is so bad that it ruins the story.
The story is a little transparent but may have been enjoyable were it not for the poor narration.
This is the 2nd in the Jack Noble series. I reserved judgment on the 1st book, to let this novel be my decider.
In my opinion, the 2 books could have been written as one. True, they're 2 different stories and settings, but they could easily have been strung together! As individual novels, they each lack some of the background information that gives a story more dimension. I don't mean that it should have pages and pages of it, but it at least should have some.
It's a very one dimensional novel, with only one dimensional characters, doing things that are extraordinary, yet ignoring the routine stuff that could be useful or lifesaving.
Also, there is still no rhyme or reason to the plot, as 'explained' by the perpetrator! So, on the whole, it leaves a very unfinished & unsettling taste in you mouth. To be honest , I'd expect more detail from a short story!
Forget the hype. This guy is no Jack Reacher, Jason Bourne or Mitch Rapp and, if you are accustomed to reading those novels, then you're going to be very disappointed or dissatisfied with Noble.
