The Black Team, an elite special ops team commissioned - off the books - by a United States Senator, eliminates threats to the country in ways that no official government agency can. When newest member Lance West accompanies his partner on a secret mission to Tokyo to gather intel on powerful Hong Kong mafia boss Fen Tsung, the situation deteriorates. Tsung kills West's partner and frames him for the murder.
West is forced to evade mobsters, police, even his own team as he fights to survive long enough to get revenge for his partner's murder and clear his name. His investigation takes him from Tokyo to Hong Kong in pursuit of Tsung and his boss, Qing Xu. But as Lance embarks on the most dangerous mission of his life, he discovers the stakes are even higher than he could have imagined when he uncovers a plot to destroy the U.S. economy.

I have not read the print version but the audio kept up such a strong pace it would be hard for print to do the same - the characters really make a huge difference in driving the pace and excitement.
Yes, it doesn't let up for a moment! The combination of the variety of characters driving the story and pace and the narrator pushing it too is great. The plot in itself flies along. It is a gripping story and you you find yourself listening carefully so you don't miss a thing. Great story.
Bob certainly helps drive the pace with the urgency of his tone and speech. His style is reminiscent of a movie trailer narration so you get really get drawn into that sense of urgency and excitement. His characterisation brings that where you might well not get that from reading it your self.
Intercontinental intrigue and heart stopping action!
Action is not really my first choice in genre but I thoroughly enjoyed this piece and couldn't wait to find out what was to happen next. Great listen!
OMG! Felt Like I Was At The Movies!
I would definitely recommend this audiobook to a friend! Anyone that loves a story that puts you on edge will love this storyline. It is a typical storyline where the main character is setup for something he didn't do...but it was very interesting to see how the story plays itself out.
Loved Lance - of course. I felt compassion for him from the beginning with him losing a loved one during the Twin Tower attacks. He's a loyal person, with his own demons, but really caring about his team and his work.
I enjoyed several scenes, but maybe I would say the very first scene in the warehouse. I could literally envision the action like I was watching a movie. I was nervous during the fight scene, even before the attachment to Lance. This action scene set the stage for what I was going to continually be wrapped up in for several hours. Loved that!
This was really good writing...wonderful storyline. I was able to keep track of all of the characters - never confused by who was doing what. The actors were great. Great story!!
