Publisher's Summary

Intelligence officer Alex Hawke takes on power-hungry Russian president Vladimir Putin, who is wielding a terrifying new weapon, in the latest adrenaline-fueled thriller in Ted Bell's New York Times best-selling series.
In corrupt Russia, an erratic Vladimir Putin is determined to forge his country into a formidable superpower once again. He intends to redraw the map of Europe and will go to impossible extremes to realize his fantasies - including shooting down a civilian airliner packed with tourists bound for China. Kremlin scientists have developed a radical new weapon that could forever alter modern warfare. NATO, locked in a tense standoff over Ukraine, Poland, and Estonia, knows Putin will not hesitate to use it. But there is one man who can bring the world back from the brink: Britain's foremost intelligence asset, Lord Alexander Hawke.
The intrepid MI6 officer's latest challenge begins in the Gulf of Aden and soon has him searching for the link to a series of bizarre assassinations. Spies are dying all over the world - from London, Washington, DC, and Maine to Moscow and even the glittering Cote d'Azur. In the murky world of counterterrorism and high-stakes intrigue, the odds have never been higher. Once again, Alex Hawke must save the bullet at a time.

I like unabridged but..

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Not really. The book is good if you can get past some of the added information that was completely unnecessary. There was good plot development. The book was about 2 hours too long. I was excited when I found a 16 hour book but it just had too much of nothing that made the book too long.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Once we got past the unneeded information, the plot was good and made me want to listen further.

Did the narration match the pace of the story?

The narration was ok. It wasn't the best I have heard on Audible but it was appropriate with the story. His use of different voices for different people was good.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

The section when the duo got into the Russian meeting and got called on by the leader.

I read the previous books in the Alex Hawke series & lived them. Since I have been listening to audible books, I have found many well written & well narrated books. I was excited to listen to Patriot but was sorely disappointed that the book is not very well written - I was shocked & almost stopped listening after the first few chapters. It's also poorly narrated with little range in voice or accents. Ugh. Bought the next in the series & am tempted to ask audible for a refund.
