Publisher's Summary

In Duplicity, the newest thriller from former speaker of the House and best-selling author Newt Gingrich, such an invisible hand overseeing havoc worldwide plays a major role. Gingrich has teamed with former Washington Post reporter and best-selling author Pete Earley to create a highly plausible mix of domestic and global action in this ripped-from-the-headlines thriller.
And, of course, it's set during an American presidential election.
When President Sally Allworth decides to reestablish America's Mogadishu embassy in Somalia weeks before Election Day, her challenger says she is playing politics with American lives. That turns out to be true when the embassy is attacked and hostages are taken. Embassy station chief Gunter Conner and marine captain Brooke Grant end up the unlikely survivors of this Benghazi-style attack. Suddenly they are the only hope for saving their captured colleagues.
The firestorm of drama is compelling, set off by the intersection of Washington power and politics, a fragile third-world Islamic country, and Somali Americans here at home.
Only Newt Gingrich's unique, in-depth knowledge of the political realities of friend and foe could weave such a spellbinding tale of events and personalities, one that could actually happen...if America's leaders aren't wary of a world full of duplicity.

Hard to put down

This book was harder to put down than a Michael Crichton novel. I thought at first that a political novel might be a little sleepy and boring but not this one. There was great action from the first chapter and stayed that way through the entire book. Also this isn't a book that tries to sell Republican ideas but seemed to focus on a more serious problem that our country is facing. This is a must read for every American regardless of your political stance.

Overall I liked the book BUT

Where does Duplicity rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

It is ok but I have a ton of audio books in the hundreds if not over a thousand so where could you place it most likely bottom of the middle third.

What about Robert Fass’s performance did you like?

Narration was good

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

No The Protagonist Marine Corps Captain was not very convincing. I hated that she had to argue with any one and every one that she came in contact with . Though supposedly the heroin of the story I kept hoping she would either mature as character or the author would write her out of the story.
