Publisher's Summary

Welcome to the new war on terror. A secret wing of Homeland Security is recruiting agents to work undercover in the Middle East, and the director wants his second-in-command, Matt Egan, to bring aboard an old friend, Salam Al Fayed, better known as Fade. He's perfect: an ex-Navy Seal and the son of immigrants, he speaks flawless Arabic. Trouble is, he's "retired"; he was wounded in the line of duty, and the government refused to pay for the risky surgery that could have helped him. Now he's walking around with a bullet lodged near his spine, and he's not too fond of anyone in the government, least of all, his ex-best friend Matt Egan, whom he blames for his present condition. Against Egan's wishes, the director tries to "persuade" Fade to join the team. But Fade is prepared to fight back at any cost. The chase is on. Will Matt be able to find his friend-turned-fugitive before Fade can take the ultimate revenge?
Fade is a remarkable, take-no-prisoners program from an unparalleled writer at the height of his talents.

Great Listen

I enjoyed this book. It is the first fiction title I've listened to, in a while, that I actually finished. The characters were distinct and interesting, the story entertaining and well told. In my opinion, many modern fiction novels I've downloaded haven't been able to keep my interest. I felt they were too negative, too full of gratuitous profanity, dark in mood and low in action. Maybe it's me but I tire of stories with dark tones and full of preachy new age philosophies. I just want a decent story and don't want to feel depressed after listening to a book. Well crafted stories, even with violence, can have an up tone and this book delivers. Fade gives you great characters, plenty of action, it keeps moving and keeps you listening. You care about the characters, want to know what happens next and everything is tied up in the end. It's a fun listen, not too deep and the story is told so you can keep up with what's happening: you won't get lost with too many characters. I don't want to spoil the plot. I'll end by saying this book is well written for audio and I found myself wishing it wouldn't end and wishing that this author had more books available on audible.
