Meet terrorism's worst enemy.
Robert Garcia was an unremarkable man, tapped out of a promising military career to become a death squad assassin for the CIA. Retirement was not in the cards for Robert, so he disappeared instead. After he comes out of the cold to answer the call to aid a fellow soldier facing a bum rap, he is thrust back into the spotlight when he is in the wrong place at the wrong time and kills a terrorist, thereby saving dozens of lives. He finds gainful employment in the slaughter of jihadists, which sparks an urban social media legend that Robert, a dangerous and unfeeling assassin, is a living paladin whose mission is to rid the earth of evil for the betterment of mankind. Social media gives him the name, "Paladine", and god help whoever gets between him and his next target.

Good solid story about a vigilante...
I just enjoy hearing stories about what I sometimes wish was reality.
The main character, Robert Garcia. Although a few people have complained about the narration I thought Ken Solin did a fine job. Although his performance was a bit monotone, I kind of picture Paladine speaking or thinking in a monotone. He sees a situation, analyzes the various outcomes and takes action depending on which he sees as having the most positive conclusion.
This is the first book in this series but it will not be the last one I will listen to. I enjoyed it very much and am curious to see where this character will go. I can see quite a bit of potential as with Kenneth Eade's Brent Marks series. My only complaint is that I would like a longer book that is a little more fleshed out.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Very good narration!
