I loved this thrilling book. The main character in this story is Sean Kruger who was introduced in The Fugitive's Trail. This book is a standalone listen, yet has some characters from the previous book. It is not a cliffhanger. I loved how this book moved along and was also thought provoking. The author wrote such great imagery in this book and kept the twists and turns coming. The narrator added much enjoyment to this book with his various characters distinguishable voices and emotions. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. Typically I listen to romance books, but I enjoy a good thriller too. I will definitely listen to more books by both this talented author and narrator.

I highly recommend this book for fans of Tom Clancy's political thrillers.
Sean Kruger has been working for the FBI and is getting ready to retire. His priorities are changing with a new wife and fatherhood. In this book he is fighting against the clock as an assassin travels the country killing key political figures and Middle Eastern religious extremists are plotting terrorist attacks. Krueger is frustrated and foiled by some inept colleagues (who are very easy to dislike!) and assisted by clever and out-of-the-box thinking friends.
The very real and scary thing about the story is that what is described could actually happen in the United States. It's chilling!
I definitely think this book is character driven. I found Sean's age and maturity to be refreshing when many political thrillers have young detectives who are impulsive and still trying to learn their way around solving crimes. This is the first book in the series that I have read but I felt like I caught on pretty quickly.
The fact that we spend an equal amount of time with the bad guys helps move the story forward by understanding their motivation and ideals. (They're angry that the US Army contractors didn't provide adequate protective equipment for soldiers in Iraq and Afghanistan.) Spending time in their heads was an interesting psychological experience for me as a reader / listener.
I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review via audiobook boom.
