Book 1 of the Jason King series by Matt Rogers was set in Australia, Book 2 in Venezuela, Book 3 in the French island of Corsica, and Book 4 in Egypt. In this novel, Betrayed (set in Egypt), Jason King is back working for Black Force, a secretive small US special operations group. Two other Black Force operators are sent to Egypt for an operation to stop a major terrorist strike; the two operators cannot be contacted and are assumed dead so Jason King is sent to replace them. Like the other novels in the series Betrayed is fast paced, has lots of action, includes intense suspense, and requires a suspension of disbelief as Jason King escapes one deadly situation after another as he ultimately is successful in meeting operational goals. The plots of this series remind me of the Mission Impossible TV programs and movies. Roger Wayne does a great job of narration.
Australian author Matt Rogers published his first book 18 months ago in Kindle ebook format. During those 18 months he has released 11 novels and a short story. Only six or his 11 novels are available in audio format. I decided to wait for all six Jason Kings to be available at Audible to listen to them. I express my thanks again to Audible listener Shelley for her reviews which introduced me to this series. Her reviews have introduced me to many novels/series and authors of the general suspense mystery/thriller genre. If you like the genre, you should follow her reviews.

This book really stretches the imagination. While it is certainly fun and exciting and moves at a break neck pace you will have to suspend reality. Jason King, the protagonist takes on a billionaire's security team, captures a lead terrorist, takes on two rogue black ops members and more single handedly. I have no first hand knowledge about black ops or Seals or Delta but this guy might even rival Gentry and for me that's a stretch. However I will say I did enjoy the book and it is addictive. I started listening and didn't stop until the book ended.
Roger Wayne does an excellent job narrating.
RECOMMENDED for something on the lighter side when you really need a rush. I will definitely get the next in this series. These books don't require a lot of thinking , they just grab you and take you along for the ride.
