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'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.
