Publisher's Summary

"Kill Pope Francis" is the order given to a Russian spy. "Kill the Russian spy" is the order given to five CIA operatives....
In Turkey, the CIA intercepts a plot to assassinate a Western target. The Agency calls Chris Paladin, Hannah Andrade, and Sonny Cohen to hunt the assassin.
Meanwhile, the CIA sends brothers Max and Tom Wayne to Syria to track down a new bioweapon called BK-16. But the brothers become infected, and their mission quickly changes to finding an antidote.
Both missions lead the five CIA operatives to Italy. There, they launch covert operations from a muscle yacht on the Mediterranean Sea. Soon, they uncover a Russian spy, code-named Minotaur, ordered to use BK-16 to assassinate Pope Francis....
The team:
Chris "Reverend" Paladin left SEAL Team Six to become a pastor. Until the CIA pulled him back in. He's quick on the draw and efficient under fire.
Hannah "Infidel" Andrade delivers a triple knockout with her elegant smile, mixed martial arts skills, and Agency tradecraft. The CIA tapped her to be team leader, and she tapped her best friend, Chris, for this mission.
Sonny "Sunshine" Cohen is the insult comic who terrorizes terrorists. He is on loan to the Agency from the Army's Delta Force. Also known as "Super Jew".
Max "Yukon" Wayne crossed over from SEAL Team Six to the dark side: the CIA's Special Operations Group. He lost his parents and his faith, and he'll do anything to protect the only family he has left - his brother, Tom.
Tom "Tomahawk" Wayne is Max's younger brother. Their Marine father taught them special ops skills from an early age, and Tom put those skills to use during a tour as an Army Ranger in the Middle East. Tom loves to read and has adorkable moments.
And you....
If you've never enjoyed a Stephen Templin thriller, this is where to start!

CIA Hunts Russian killer in Rome.

What made the experience of listening to Patriot Dream the most enjoyable?

The description of a Special Operations group how they operate and the character of the
various members of the team.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Did not have a favorite but enjoyed the different skill sets brought to the operation through each member.

What about Brian Troxell’s performance did you like?

He brings the story along and helps the listener get lost in the story.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

Will the assassination succeed.

Any additional comments?

Freefalling without a parachute.

No gentle lead in with this book: the reader is launched straight into the centre of the story, or rather, the conclusion of the first half of the book, which both introduces the five main agents and sets the question, why are two of them 'dead men walking?' The continuation of this first assault sets the grounding for the second half, flagged in the synopsis: the Russian inspired assassination of the Pope.

Non stop action throughout but still with time for some characterisation and nice visceral touches, like the smell of mint. Full description, too, of weaponry and place locations, car makes and street names. And some real hold-your-breath moments.

Narrator Brian Troxell takes it all in his stride with distinctive voicings, a good solid reading with good timbre and intonation, and a pace matched to the text. Although fifth in the Special Ops Group thriller series, it is not necessary to have read the earlier books although, doubtless, this would have increased familiarity with the protagonists initially.

My thanks to the rights holder who freely gifted me with a complimentary copy of Patriot Dreams, at my request, via Audiobook Boom. Although I was slightly confused at the very beginning, the style and fast action story quickly drew me into what became an intriguing and satisfying listen. Recommended to all who enjoy this genre.

I loved this book!

Wow. Stop wasting time reading reviews. Grab this book and jump in!!

I loved the narration in terms of pace and the feel of the characters. It's really well written.
I couldn't stop listening. The pace is incredible. It feels very visual as a book, lots of action. I love the premise of the story which you can read if you read the summary of the book so I wont repeat. It you read that and like the sound of the book, just get it because you will like the book! This type of books needs a really good bad guy as much as it needs really good, good guys - your sorted, you get both!

Really great. Really enjoyable and entertaining.
I would say it would make a good movie which it would but its also perfect as it is.
