Publisher's Summary

Gordon McAllister never wanted to be a hero - at least not one who ever got any outward recognition. An executive recruiter by day, McAllister's other job comes with a code name, ZEBRA, the leader of a team of elite assassins who report to only one man: the president of the United States. But he's been inactive for years, perfectly content to spend his time finding CEOs and VPs for Fortune 500 companies. Now, as members of his team are murdered in seemingly unrelated incidents and multiple terror attacks savage civilian targets throughout the country, McAllister realizes it's time once again to screw on the silencer and get back to work. He must reactivate himself and hunt down the man who is behind it all, the one who will do whatever it takes to steal the power he craves and tear the nation to shreds to get it.

This is Workman’s first novel and what a start it is. Gordon McAllister’s code name is ZEBRA; he is the leader of a team of elite assassins who report only to the President of the United States.

Workman is a great storyteller. The plot has many twists and turns, the suspense is palatable. The pace is fast, the book kept me on the edge of my seat to the end. Workman has developed his characters in a realistic manner. I am amazed at the quality of the writing and story for a first novel. I hope Workman will be able to continue the quality with his future books. Steve Williams did a good job narrating the book.

Good story, Narrator needs work

I enjoyed the story very much, it was better than I anticipated for a first time author. He kept the story moving and for the most part, believable. I found the narrator distracting. He tends to read the book instead of tell the story. If you have listened to as many audible books as I have, I assure you there is a difference. Also, he has a hiss with every word that began with a S, which drove me crazy. He definitely needs to work on his craft. However, it was not enough of an annoyance, for me to not enjoy the story line. I look forward to the author's next book. I expect he will get even better with experience.
