I had often wanted to try this series in the past but never quite got to it somehow. Audible publishing book one after all these years was therefore a chance I was happy to take. It's a decent story and the series has been very popular. Also in its favour is the fact that Jonathan Oliver has a great range of character voices and accents and he does the cast real justice.
For me though the central character just didn't match his legend. He is a master of disguise who apparently outsmarts intelligence forces all over the world. Yet he trusts the untrustworthy, plans major operations literally overnight and explains things like his travel plans and aliases at the drop of a hat. Simply put I just didn't get him.
The story itself moves along at a decent pace so I was reasonably entertained. I can imagine why people enjoy these books but as I couldn't tune into Dillon as a central character I won't be continuing with the series personally.

What disappointed you about Eye of the Storm?
Started listening to this and as I'm sure the story is a good one I could only listen to 2 hours in. The narrator is awful, ruined the listen.
Would you be willing to try another one of Jonathan Oliver’s performances?
