With the presidential election in only eight days, sitting President Sands, about to leave office, calls in former CIA operative and master thief Robin Monarch and convinces him to save the diplomats before the threatened execution.
In Outlaw, Monarch and his counterpart, a mysterious Chinese agent named Song Le, embark upon a dangerous journey into the underbelly of Southeast Asia, a world of corrupt Vietnamese Army officers, fanatical pirates, Hong Kong triad leaders, and volatile mercenaries living around the red light districts of Thailand. As they get closer and closer, with time quickly running out, Monarch learns that the daring kidnapping and ransom pot diabolical plot is only a front. Behind it is another plot, one designed to alter the outcome of the election itself, a conspiracy that reaches deep inside the White House, back to the very people who hired Monarch in the first place.

Robin Hood for today is Ribin Monarch
Would you listen to Outlaw again? Why?
Good story, good narration. When I need a good listen an have nothing lined up, sure I would listen to this again
Any additional comments?
I really like this new series. Sullivan is proving himself to be included with authors like Ben Coes, Mark Greaney etc. the books have complex plots with many curves along the way and once solved , the conclusion is not the end, that's when hidden agendas are revealed. GREAT!!

The most incompetent hero ever.
I bought this book on the recommendations. Although it is your average pulp fiction, it is rather ludicrous. The hero, Robin Monarch, is hired by the president to find the captured secretary of state. His credentials is that he is ex CIA, Special Forces, and allegedly the world's best thief. Okay, that is standard fare. But the real issue with this book is that the guy gets caught in every situation. He always manages to fight his way out, but to be caught every time?. In one scene he wants to rob an office in the world's tallest tower so of course he has to jump out of a helicopter and land on the side of the building with super magnetic gloves (although the author states the building is covered in stainless steel which is non magnetic). He finally gets in the office and two minutes later the owner walks in a catches him. How about the old tried and true criminal technique of the lookout?
There are much better books in this genre, not sure would waste a credit here.
