Publisher's Summary

In Paris, an elderly man is assassinated as he takes his morning walk. In the war-torn cities of Syria, government forces wage a bloody war against their own people. The Russians are propping up the government, the French are backing one rebel fraction and the British are backing another. And in north Africa, young SAS trooper Jamie Truman is coming to the end of a gruelling tour of duty, or so he thinks.
Jamie has a new mission. An MI6 agent needs to make contact with Syrian rebel forces, and also with the private military contractors who are - unofficially - training this rebel faction as it struggles to bring down their government and establish a new regime that will be favourable to British business interests. As they travel deep into rebel heartland, Jamie will learn who the masters of war, the men who call the shots, really are. As Jamie finds himself sucked into the murky orbit of the private military, he discovers a world where death is dispensed by the highest bidder and individuals will betray anybody if the price is right. And where a secret lurks that will change the course of Jamie's own life, however long that might last...

Chris Ryan's new hero

What made the experience of listening to Masters of War the most enjoyable?

a good performance by Jamie Parker

Would you be willing to try another book from Chris Ryan? Why or why not?

definitely love Chris Ryan as an author. Hope the next 2 books I just bought are as good as this one.

What about Jamie Parker’s performance did you like?

Great voice characterizations and accents.

Well...what an intriguing 'listen'.....

Slow to start off with as Ryan sets the story out and ultimately who his new character 'Danny Black' and his unknown (to him) background. Like any Ryan/McNab book of recent times, the devil is in the detail. Only those who have actually been in these situations can provide such detail as this. I look forward to hearing more about Black and I'm sure it's not the last we'll hear of Buckingham without spoiling it for everyone that hasn't partaken as yet.
Back to traditional paper for Hunter Killer, hopefully have it completed just in time for Hellfire (book 3). It's been a while since I've had the time to catch up on Ryan and McNab books, but they couldn't be closer to where I'm right now. 😉
