His world is violently dismantled. His family is targeted, his reputation destroyed. And as a mysterious and ruthless enemy plans a devastating terror attack on both sides of the Atlantic, Joe knows this: his only chance of survival is to find out what happened in Bin Laden's compound the night the Americans went in. But an unseen, menacing power has footprints it needs to cover. And it will stop at nothing to prevent him uncovering the sinister truth.

Abridged version missing plot essentials
I usually enjoy Ryan's books and Osama is no exception - its easy listening action, great for the morning motorway commute to the office. I must admit though that I'm not really a fan of abridged versions of books, I feel cheated when they end within a couple of hours. In the case of Obama, the book was pretty good, fast paced and easy to digest, but there were a couple of plot essentials that just weren't there (or maybe I missed them...but unlikley given the relatively short length of the book) leaving me wondering "where did that come from?" or "How did 2+2=5?" . For such a popular author as Ryan, I recommend that the publisher records the whole book...a longer listen, no plot holes and happier fans. On the plus side Keeble's narration was pretty good and kept me engaged.

One of the better Chris Ryan books
It is definitely worth a listen. The last few hours were particularly good. They had me gripped. I enjoyed it.
