Publisher's Summary

The Forest of Assassins is a historic thriller set in the earliest days of the American involvement in the Vietnam War. It involves the earliest of Navy SEAL teams. It is set in a time when the Navy still did not admit these men existed - much less had they determined if those units would survive until the next conflict, or if the experiment would be abandoned.

Where does The Forest of Assassins rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Somewhere in the middle. This is not a slam on the book. It lands in the middle because I listen to so many.

What did you like best about this story?

Several reviewers gave this book low marks. Perhaps because it is more of a documentary style of writing. Once you realize that this is very similar to a 'real' look into this conflict and the regimented style. I had a hard time 'getting into it,' but I had *agreed to to listen in exchange for a review, but once I was it kept me riveted.

Which character – as performed by Andrew Tell – was your favorite?

Andrew Tell's performance was above average. His low, gravel was perfect for anyone; 18 year old solder, to the older commanders. He was believable as female characters-wives and those were working along side our soldiers.

Hi! Thanks for checking out my review. Reviews help me in deciding whether or not to purchase a books, especially new authors or performers. Sometimes they are helpful and sometimes they're not. If you found this review helpful would you take a moment and select 'YES' below the next paragraph?

Follow me on Audible, if you'd like. My favorite books are contemporary romance and counter-terrorism/thrillers books by authors like Vince Flynn. However, you will find books from all genres, as I'm asked to listen to and review.
