Publisher's Summary

CODENAME: CHANDLER
She's an elite spy, working for an agency so secret only three people know it exists. Trained by the best of the best, she has honed her body, her instincts, and her intellect to become the perfect weapon.
FLEE
Then her cover is explosively blown, and she becomes a walking bulls-eye, stalked by assassins who want the secrets she holds, and those who'd prefer she die before talking.
Chandler now has twenty-four hours to thwart a kidnapping, stop a murderous psychopath, uncover the mystery of her past, retire five highly-trained contract killers, and save the world from nuclear annihilation, all while dodging 10,000 bullets and a tenacious cop named Jack Daniels.
Buckle up. It's going to be one helluva ride.

ARRRGH!! Decent Book with World's Worst Narrator

The pace of this book is excellent, and the story is engaging, albeit a bit overdone.

But holy crap, who hired Angela Dawe as this narrator? I almost can't follow the story because she's so monstrously bad. I'm shocked to see how many books she's narrated. I don't know how anyone can stand to listen to her.

Hear for yourself. Listen to the sample. Unless it's a question (or unless she's speaking for another character), her intonation is exactly the same (especially the END of every sentence), no matter what the context.

And she clearly punctuates her sentences with pauses so that you get the full impact of each annoying repetition in the way she speaks. I find myself wishing she'd just run two sentences together so I wasn't drawn into to focus on her nightmarish delivery.

Everyone's different. If her delivery doesn't bother you, get this book. It's almost too much for me to bear.

unreal

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

Situations within the book conflict with themselves, i.e. a women in her early 30s having a lover from 20 years ago.


Has Flee turned you off from other books in this genre?

Some sense of realism, no attempt at all to make situations even seem plausible.


Would you be willing to try another one of Angela Dawe’s performances?

The performance was fine
