Publisher's Summary

Wake the wrong dog and it can get you killed.
In this first book in the Sleeping Dogs series - there currently are four books and counting - the president of the United States has been targeted for assassination - by his own handlers. The killing must look like the president's political opposition is responsible. Desperate to prevent the crime and the overwhelming outpouring of sympathy that will only further empower the real killers, the opposition turns to the only force that can stop it this late in the game - a mysterious hunter-killer team known as the Sleeping Dogs. This darkest of black ops units was formed to carry out America's wettest, most politically incorrect missions abroad. Eventually, a US president, fearing discovery of the unit's existence would spark an international crisis, ordered its members terminated with extreme prejudice. They escaped by faking their deaths in a plane crash, and went underground. Now, 20 years later, they are asked to leave the safety of their anonymity and risk their lives for their country one more time.
A seemingly unconnected car crash rapidly escalates into a series of plot twists and a rising body count involving Russian agents, crooked politicians, Ukrainian gangsters, a billionaire international arbitrageur, a secret society of patriots in the military and intelligence communities, the CIA, a doggedly determined FBI agent, and the six deadliest men on earth - the surviving Sleeping Dogs.
The body count begins climbing in the first chapter, as Brendan Whelan and the other Dogs relentlessly pursue the would-be assassins and their handlers. As they do, they begin to uncover, layer by layer, a plot to bring America to her knees and impose a one-world government on the planet. The enemy is powerful, with access to unlimited funds and the ability to manipulate the rogue nations of the world. The problem? They've awakened the Sleeping Dogs.

WOW!! What a Ride!

If you enjoy books where good guys render justice in a swift and decisive manner, this book is for you. The main characters are well developed and their personalities bring an enjoyable component to the narrative. I'm looking forward to the fleshing out of the support characters in the following books. Women and marriages are respected, which is also refreshing in alpha male characters.

Sleeping Dogs is a home run!

Sleeping Dogs is as close to a "page turner" as you can get with an audio book. The story and performance are wildly fun and take you on ride you won't soon forget.
