Publisher's Summary

Charles "Jay" Tice was a spy's spy. The chief of the CIA's elite Clandestine Services, he was a legend throughout the world of international intelligence. But secretly he was also a traitor, reputedly selling information that will seriously compromise the security of the United States for decades to come. Since his treachery was exposed, Tice has been kept under strict surveillance in a maximum security prison. Then one morning, his cell is discovered empty. Jay Tice has vanished - without tripping an alarm or leaving any trace of his passing.
Elaine Cunningham is a hunter - a CIA operative who specializes in finding people who don't want to be found. Young, gifted and a maverick, she is assigned to track Tice and bring him to ground before he disappears forever. But as she matches wits in a perilous game with one of the greatest spymasters of all time, she discovers there is far more at stake than an old spy's last run for freedom.
Lurking in the shadows are other hidden players with their own lethal agendas and, from Geneva to Washington, Berlin to New York City, a deadly conspiracy is coalescing. With only a few hours to go, and the future of millions in the balance, she must uncover the truth behind the legend of the last spymaster.

fast and furious

I had never heard of this author before this book, and was reluctant to purchase "The Last Spymaster". I saw the review by David Morrell, and decided to go with it. The book took off after the first few minutes, and the action was fast and furious straight through to the end. I have listened to 200+ audio books, and I'd rank this one near the top for entertainment. The narration was excellent. I don't typically expect spy novels to be particulary deep. I just want to be entertained while i exercise and drive. This novel succeeded in entertaining me from beginning to end, and is well worth the money and time spent.

What a disappointment

The premise of the story has promise, but the writing is bland and repetitive. Apparently, while the English language has dozens of euphemisms for "kill", the author only believes in two; "scrub" and "wipe". I'm not kidding; you could use this audiobook as a Forever Alone drinking game; one shot for "wipe", two shots for "scrub".

All the characters are annoying; the protagonist is supposed to be a tough-as-nails wild woman, but really, she's pretty much always holding back tears, or has a lump in her throat. The titular spymaster is running for his life, but he and the wild woman develop an almost instant affection for each other, and over the course of about a day and a half, are hugging each other. This is normal in adventure romances, but this book isn't supposed to be that.

The dialogue is so brutally trite in places that I actually flinched in embarrassment. Like the thug who screams "I'll get you, Tice! I'lllllll gettt youuuuuu!" while shaking his fist in the air.

And then, ye gods, there is the narration! I'm sure that the narrator is a nice person, but this isn't his best work. There are probably a twenty characters that exchange dialogue throughout the book, but only two of them sound different than anyone else. Oh, except the Arab characters, who all sound like pirates. "Allahu Akbar, argghhh!"

I wish I had my credit back.
