Publisher's Summary

To atone for the sins he committed serving his country, ex-covert government agent Paul Janson is determined to save the world: one person, one mission, one redemption at a time.
The Janson Option
Paul Janson - a former Consular Ops legend known as "The Machine" for his deadly speed and accuracy - has a new mission. Sickened by the "sanctioned serial killings" ordered by the state department, Janson has left covert operations and is now a private security consultant. In partnership with deadly sharpshooter Jessica Kincaid, he only takes assignments that he believes will lead to the greater good.
When American Synergy Corporation oil executive Kingsman Helms begs Janson to rescue his wife, Allegra, from Somali pirates, Janson and Kincaid view it as the perfect opportunity to infiltrate ASC and disrupt the company's scheme to subvert independent oil-rich African countries into wholly-owned ASC subsidiaries.
Once on the ground, Janson and Kincaid discover that the pirates may be the least lethal threat in the violent chaos of anarchic Somalia. Is Allegra's kidnapping for real? Or is she merely a pawn in her husband's machinations for control of the country? Janson and Kincaid quickly find themselves embroiled in a bewildering storm of plots and counterplots, and their fight to survive threatens to disrupt the entire region, and beyond....

action, great research, hot relationship.

the action was fast paced and realistic enough for a fun action book. The research in detail about Somalia the yachts and arms always add to the interest and drawing you into the book.

The Janson Option

Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

Yes, but not this audio version. Paul Garrison does a decent job, though not up to Ludlum's stories.

What did you like best about this story?

The plot kept me interested.

How could the performance have been better?

I did not like the narrator, and it's hard to judge the book separate from this. He read in a clipped and rapid style which required me to really focus to hear and follow it all. He did not give the characters the warmth and interest that would let me build a connection with them - that may have been a fault of the author, but I suspect it's more the performance.

Was Robert Ludlum's The Janson Option worth the listening time?

Yes, I listen while I run and I run daily, so I was happy to give it the time.
