Noah Wolf is one of the world's most deadly assassins, completely devoid of emotion and conscience. These factors, which others would consider to be handicaps, allow him to evaluate situations instantly, and from a purely logical standpoint. His decisions and actions are never tainted by emotion or feelings, which frees him from any risk of fear or guilt.
When Team Camelot is handed an unusual mission to rescue the abducted daughter of a foreign president, Noah and the rest go into it with confidence, and are quickly successful. Back home, they are ready to celebrate, but something doesn't feel right. The mission was too easy, and there are indicators that someone may have discovered who they are and tracked them back to Neverland. Noah's house is entered while the team is away, and he is unable to shake the feeling that the mission was nothing but a ruse to expose E & E.
It doesn't take long for him to decide that they must return to the field, their new mission to track down a Russian counterpart of their own Allison Peterson. Nicolaich Andropov has marked Noah for termination, so Noah decides to use himself as bait to draw the man into a trap. Unfortunately, Andropov is known as a ghost, a man whose appearance is unknown, able to move in absolute secrecy and remain several steps ahead of any who pursue him. When Noah fails to recognize this fact, Sarah becomes a hostage and pawn in a battle to the death. There's only one tiny chance to save her, but it will mean Noah must go unarmed and alone to meet his nemesis. The game is on, with his own life and Sarah's as the prize.

Noah may have some feelings after all...
Any other David Archer book. He has a very recognizable style.
Really good storyline, well thought out plot involving a staged kidnapping and rescue that goes s little to easy. That's because the instigator planned it that way to locate and eliminate Noah and his team. When Noah's girlfriend is kidnapped though, the man who has no feelings has something he can't name! Guess there's some humanity still in there after all. The end will confirm this as well.
This is perfect for people who are opposed to cursing because I could probably count on one hand how many curse words were used in the entire book.
Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Better writing, better performance, a plot without such obvious holes.
Still love the adventure/intrigue genre but will not follow this particularly series and intend to return this first volume.
Not on your life! You know those voice actors who are masters of nuance? Who can smoothly and believably transition among several accents - British, Russian, Middle-Eastern, U.S. southern? Well, that ain't this guy. All of his voices sound like cartoon characters. There were Dudly Do-Right, Boris Badenov, Yogi Bear and I think even Mr. Ranger. The cadence was all wrong. And then there were the mispronunciations, STELLA-toe for stiletto, etc. Verner has a pleasant enough voice and did not stumble (by which I mean he mispronounced words with confidence) but I think he would make a better "announcer" than book narrator.
Disappointment. I use audio books for distraction during mind-numbing tasks, so I'm fairly tolerant if the writing or performance are not first class. But this was pure dreck,
In addition to the unskilled performance, the writing was poor. Dialog was stilted and uninteresting. Absolutely no humor here, folks.
