Publisher's Summary

Some people are naturally brilliant, others have to buy it. What would you pay, to be one in a million?
Framed for murder and on the run, former Olympic biathlete Kyle Achilles is also in the crosshairs of assassins' guns. Why? He has no idea. He's fighting blind against two master strategists and one extraordinary invention - known as Brillyanc.
Achilles' only ally is the other prime suspect, a beautiful Russian mathematician who is either the best or worst person to ever enter his life. Katya was engaged to Achilles' brother - before he died.
Chasing clues while dodging bullets, Achilles and Katya race around the globe, uncovering a conspiracy conceived in Moscow, born in Silicon Valley, and destined to demolish both the White House and the Kremlin. Along the way a lost soul finds purpose, a broken heart confronts forbidden love, and America gains a new hero.
Packed with heart-stopping surprises, paced by razor-sharp plotting, and populated with richly rendered characters, Pushing Brilliance will leave you breathless and longing for more.

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?

Just about!

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.

Finally, Tim Tigner has an espionage series!!

The series protagonist is ex-CIA Agent Kyle Achilles. Chasing Ivan, a 4 hour audiobook released in March or this year., is the series prequel. This recently released Pushing Brilliance is Book 1. It also appears that the Russian mathematician Katya will return in the next Kyle Achilles novel The Lies of the Spies (according to the end notes in this audiobook). Kyle Achilles has real promise as an espionage series protagonist. This is a superb book made even better by the narration of Dick Hill.

Highly recommended!
