Publisher's Summary

Introducing an exhilarating new espionage thriller by former CIA ops officer Valerie Plame and thriller writer Sarah Lovett.
Covert CIA ops officer Vanessa Pierson is finally close to capturing the world's most dangerous international nuclear arms dealer: Bhoot, alias the ghost. One of her assets has information about Bhoot's upcoming visit to a secret underground nuclear weapons facility in Iran - in only a few days. But just as Pierson's informant is about to give her the location, they're ambushed by an expert sniper. Pierson narrowly escapes. Her asset: dead.
Desperate to capture Bhoot and the sniper before they inflict more damage, Pierson enlists all of the Agency's resources to find them. But with each day, the pressure of the manhunt mounts, causing her to push her forbidden romance with a fellow ops officer to its limit when she asks him to do the impossible. Despite the risks, she refuses to halt her pursuit of the terrorists, and she puts her cover and her career - and her life - at risk.
With rapid-cut shifts from European capitals to Washington to the Near East, and with insider detail that only a former spy could provide, Blowback marks the explosive beginning of the hunt for Bhoot, the villain whom Vanessa Pierson devotes her life to capturing, dead or alive.

Hokey and more like a dime-store novel

I liked Valerie Plame's autobiography of how she got screwed by the Bush administration and the CIA.

But this story is so bad I can't believe it's from the same person.

Also, the way the audio works, it is very hard to tell who is speaking and where they are. This is the first time I've listened to an audio book and wished I was reading text.

Also, the narration was so over the top that it became laughable.

Skip it and listen to a real spy novelist's work.

Meh

What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

The ending fizzled but left the story wide open for the next book and many of the same flat characters.

What didn’t you like about Negin Farsad’s performance?

The narrator has a lovely voice, but the pace was too fast.
