Publisher's Summary

Betrayed and left for dead by his CIA handler, Thomas Caine suffered captivity and torture. He was hunted for crimes he did not commit. And he was forced to watch his partner die, gunned down before his eyes.
Now, he has found the man responsible for all his pain and suffering. But the cost of revenge may prove too high. His target reveals that Caine's partner had a son, now a young man, named Sean. And Sean is in terrible danger.
To save him, Caine will have to journey through the cities and villages of the most populous country on the planet: The People's Republic of China.
There, he and Sean find themselves tangled in a dangerous conspiracy. To survive, they must fight NSA killers, escape a secret black jail, and struggle against a power-mad triad gangster determined to cement his family's dynasty.
But Caine's most dangerous enemy is a deadly double agent, stalking them from the shadows. Their identity is unknown. Their motives are unclear. And their methods are 100 percent lethal. They are known only by their code name: Red Phoenix.
Can Thomas Caine unravel the identity of this mysterious assassin before they strike their killing blow?

This series keeps getting better & better!

Wow! This book and narrator really surprised me. This is the third book in this series if you include the prequel. I thought book #1 was good but didn't think the narrator did good. This book has the same narrator but this time Jonathan Davis does an outstanding job.

The book is packed full of nonstop action. I can't add anything to the synopsis without giving anything away. The protagonist, Thomas Caine is very much like other independent agents of this genre. He has his own backstory of course , that of betrayal and loss and revenge. He also has the deadly skills to carry out his plans. In this book the Red Phoenix did shock me when finally exposed. But what was really a surprise was when they joined forces against the multiple antagonists.
All I can say is GET THE BOOK!!

I struggle with rating this novel

Red Phoenix is the second novel the Thomas Caine Thriller series. There is also a short story prequel. I have listened to all three books in the series. I decided to wait some time to consider how to rate and review this novel. The strong points of Red Phoenix are almost continuous action, intense suspense, and an interesting espionage plot that is set in China but pits the US CIA against the US NSA. The weak point is and almost total lack of character development; after listening to all three series books I know almost nothing about the protagonist and the other repeating characters. The issue for me is how to weigh the real strengths of Red Phoenix (the novel, not the female Chinese character in this book with that nickname) against the lack of character development.

The series prequel, titled Devil's Due, was narrated superbly by Bryan L Anderson. Jonathan Davis, who is a far more experienced narrator, narrated Tokyo Black (Book 1) and Red Phoenix. Davis' narration of Tokyo Black was horrid because when dealing with emotional content and dialog he drastically increased the volume of his voice to at least twice a loud as when the content was not emotional. Davis solved that issue with Red Phoenix and did a nice job.

After 30 hours in listening to this series I know far too little about the background of the main characters and what drives them. For comparison consider the Victor the Assassin series by British writer Tom Wood where we do not know even the name of the protagonist. But we do know quite a bit about what drives him, how he operates, and the limits he places on himself. The Victor series is character driven. In the case of the Thomas Caine thriller series author Andrew Warren has substituted continuous action for character development. I find that unfulfilling.
