Publisher's Summary

Torture. Ghost Detainees. And a massive cover-up that continues even today. Marooned in a Manila jail after a bar fight fatality, black ops soldier Ben Treven gets a visit from his former commander, Colonel Scott Horton, who explains the price of Ben's release: find and eliminate Daniel Larison, a rogue operator from Ben's unit who has stolen 92 torture tapes from the CIA and is using them to blackmail the U.S. government. But other players are after the tapes, too, and to find Larison, Ben will have to survive CIA hit teams, Blackwater mercenaries, and the long reach of the White House. He'll also have to find a way to handle Paula Lanier, a smart, sexy FBI agent who has her own reasons for wanting the tapes and is determined to get them before Ben does. With the stakes this high, everyone has an angle - everyone but Ben, who will have to find the right alliance if he wants to stay alive.

Excellent Series I hope Book 3 is going to be soon

Who was your favorite character and why?

Ben Treven is my favorite, but Hort runs a close second. He is so deviousl, you never know when he's being honest or plotting out some scheme. Great character. I also like how Ben constantly looks for Hort's praise even knowing what kind of person he is, almost as a father figure.

Any additional comments?

I REALLY like this series. It is important to listen to them in order as each one builds on the previous. I also really like Barry Eisler as a narrator. He does an excellent job.

I'm curious

I've blown through most of Eisler's books now. I admire his character developments for the most part, & story arcs, & he does an excellent job narrating.

But this newer series- and I hate to say it- feels formulaic in one sense. Trevino treats smart, capable women like shit, & repels them...but yet these intelligent, highly professional and oh, yes, stunning women put all of their reservations on the back burner for" the hottest sex they've ever had"....

Haven't even gotten to the actual sex yet, but it's obvious it's where this one is going. I really admire a lot about Eisler's books. He articulates many differ dimensional levels not only to the characters, and their back stories, but also to political landscapes and realities. But this part- and I actually think he writes to erotic scenes very well, too- it's the way these women seem to cave, I guess- seems too predictable, and sad. And disrespectful. That's not a pc complaint, it's an intellectual honesty complaint. Anyway, it bugged me enough this time to wonder aloud if I'm alone on this.
