What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?
good narrator and good story with decent dialogue
Has Ghosts of War turned you off from other books in this genre?
No, just this reader and autor
What didn’t you like about Henry Strozier and Rich Orlow ’s performance?
Don't know which was which, but the young man sounded like a teenager reading out loud for the first time Older man ok
What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?
Anger and disappointment. The author had horrible and redundant dialogue between his characters that changed from interesting in earlier books to childish and silly conversations.
Any additional comments?
Author was very repetitive in conversations and dealt over and over again with the same silly give and take. Completely unbelievable scenarios out of the realm even of soap opera nonsense. Decent and interesting characters from earlier books were reduced to bickering adolescents through psychological mumbo jumbo that was nonsensical.

This the third recent release where some Audible listeners posted negative ratings before having the time to listen to the espionage novel even at 3X listening speed. The other two were Foreign Agent by Brad Thor and First Strike by Ben Coes. I usually listen to books at 2X recording speed because that is most comfortable for me. Ghosts of War, the 10th novel in the Pike Logan series, is a solid 5 star espionage thriller which I recommend, but it still is not as good as First Strike by Ben Coes. First Strike ties Back Blast by Mark Greaney for the best espionage novels released so far this year. I use the same criteria another Audible listener has stated for awarding 5 star ratings: I believe it must be an outstanding book which I look forward to listen to again. Ghosts of War easily meets those criteria.
This novel is a continuation of The Forgotten Soldier, the prior novel in the Pike Logan series, but I like this story more. It picks up exactly where The Forgotten Soldier finished.
