Publisher's Summary

When a SpyCo agent is killed on a deserted road during the wee hours, things begin falling apart for SpyCo chief J. Carlton Moore. A briefcase containing classified information disappears, leaving the future of the United States' war on terror in doubt. With the terrorist group Scorpion suspected of possessing the missing briefcase and vital information somehow leaking from the most secure SpyCo meetings, Moore calls on covert operative James Reagan Burke. Thrown together into an unlikely team composed of a former flame and a Grecian body-builder, and seeing shadowy pursuers at every turn, Burke must decide whom he can trust and recover the briefcase before it's too late.
A fun romp in the Mediterranean, Assignment: Athens provides thrills without the darkness, and chills without the nightmares. Infused with wry humor, Assignment: Athens is an enjoyable beginning to the SpyCo novella series.

Maxwell Smart Meets The Man From U.N.C.L.E.

Clearly something so over the top is meant to be parody! Ian Fleming glamorized the Cold War, Agents Solo and Kuryakin added sly humor and of course Maxwell Smart upped the ante to slapstick. SpyCo is a throwback to the marvelous yarns of yesteryear with derring do and bullets flying and bodies piling up in the corridors as the "good guys" rappel down a cliff in Greece. While vocalizing the characters expertly, narrator Anthony Lee [AUDIO] seemed to add a deliberate heavy-handedness hinting at stuffy bureaucracy behind the freewheeling agents. Ah, nostalgia! I enjoyed this thoroughly!

Good story.

I really enjoyed the story line. The dialogue parts of the narration were good but the rest of the narration reminded me of text to speech.

I have a deal for you, Mr.Burke.

Any additional comments?

A quick and easy read 'no frills' spy thriller. After the death of an agent, Burke (code name Tiger) is sent to Athens to recover a missing briefcase, believed to be stolen by the Scorpion group. There he is joined by two other backup agents, one of whom is an old girlfriend. But as his life is also threatened, who can be trusted?

Written in short, simple sentences and very little unecessary description, but hints of wry humour, there are fights without the usual emphasis on gore. The characters remain mostly two dimensional as the story moves at a fast pace. Anthony Lee's narration is similar in tone, the reading deadpan although the vocalisation of the protagonists is good, each distinctively individual, helping breathe life into them.

My thanks to the rights holder of Assignment:Athens for freely gifting me my copy, via Audiobook Boom, and this review is entirely voluntary on my part. I enjoyed the book, just right for in uncomplicated and fairly brief listen. I hope that there will be more adventures of Mr.Burke and friends.
