Publisher's Summary

An American president who will do anything to win reelection. . .
An Iranian leader who will stop at nothing to bring about apocalypse. . .
An ancient evil, only waiting to be reborn...
High in the Alborz Mountains of northwestern Iran, an archaeological team disappears. American citizens are among the missing...
Days later, imagery from U.S. spy satellites reveals detachments of the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corps descending upon the site...
With the presidential election only months away, President Roger Hancock authorizes a covert CIA mission into the mountains of Iran. Their objective: rescue the archaeologists and uncover the truth.
With fifteen years in the Clandestine Service, paramilitary operations officer Harry Nichols is unquestionably the man for the job. He's a tough, ruthless veteran operator. He's led his men into harm's way time and again. For him, it's all about the mission. It's all about the team. He's never seen anything like this before...
Drawn into a web of conspiracy that reaches half-way around the world and into the highest levels of the U.S. government, he soon finds that nothing is as it seems. The mission itself is suspect. His team can no longer be trusted. And a misstep means world war...

Any additional comments?

Stephen M. England did a fantastic job with Pandora's Grave. He sets the stage like an old master of the Adventure genre, pulling the reader into a great and thrilling plot.

The action moves blazingly fast from the US to Iran and to Israel, keeping you on the edge of your seat with lots of twists and turns.

I really enjoyed the mystery behind the story, the lifelike characters, the interesting locations, the suspense, the covert operations and I must point out the respect Mr. England showed towards the special operators.

Pandora's Grave is an immersive book about religion, an ancient evil, biological weapons, black ops, politics and brave men. Be warned! Start it when you have time on your hands because you'll not be able to put it down.

I'm convinced that a lot of research has gone into writing Pandora's Grave and I think that all Thriller and Adventure fans will enjoy this 1st book in the Shadow Warriors series.

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

No. This book is filled with cliches and characters that have been taken from other books of this type. The narration was so bad I had to stop listening to the book.

Would you ever listen to anything by Stephen M. England again?

No. Not unless he develops a style of his own.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

He was over the top with his attempt to add substance to the book.

Was Pandora's Grave: Shadow Warriors Series worth the listening time?
