I don't write reviews often but I deeply appreciate good talent, and it's difficult to find the wheat among the chaff. From his opening dedication, to his prior novella, Chasing Ivan, we can celebrate a new master along the likes of Lee Child, Mark Greaney, etc. It is challenging to find a good storyteller so I want to congratulate one when he appears. I look forward to his other works. If Tim reads this, bravo, and keep it up. I would love to see further in this series and I appreciate your writing about relevant plots, and not the usual "war on terror" silliness that plagues so many books in this genre that feel commissioned by the Mossad, lol. People like books that show our real world corruption. The Grey Man books and Bourne movies question our establishment instead of cheerleading our establishment. It's a nuanced fine line to write about espionage heroes and show the good and the bad. I like how this book felt original while still delivering good trade craft and escapism with a great tone, humor and intelligence.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
Dick Hill is perfect for the Tim Tigner books. He brings something to military/espionage books that you wouldn't get if you read the book yourself. I personally feel like he enhances the books he narrates.
Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?
Any additional comments?
I really enjoyed this book. I am so excited to see the next book in this new series. So far I have thoroughly enjoyed all of the books written by Tigner but wanted more then a stand alone because all of his books could be the start of a series. This one does not disappoint. The protagonist in this book, Kyle Achilles loses his family, gets sent to prison, breaks out and does an awful lot that I can't tell you about because it will spoil the rest of the book for you.
This is thrilling from the first few pages right up through the end.
