Just as intense as reading a recipe for soup.

The plot is good. The style of writing kept moving from location to location which kept my attention.

The story does NOT involve the reader enough to really care about the characters or the love interests.
Emotionally I was neutral towards both the heros and the villians...

Many better espionage/thrillers books to listen to on Audible before choosing this one.

Try the following authors: (un-ordered list)

Vince Flynn
Lee Child
Nelson DeMille
Daniel Silva
Robert Littell
David Baldacci
Douglas Preston and Lincoln Child

If you are looking for a 6 star (book on a 5 star scale) gripping story about a couple of soldiers which is very intense. Read Brother Fish by Bryce Courtenay.

Publisher's description of Brother Fish is vague, and the title of the book is not exciting but give this book a try!

...Shriek Only Audible to Nancy Pelosi's Hearing

What did you like best about The Orpheus Deception? What did you like least?

Sigh. Another one of these books wherein a conservative author shouts his politics at you. There were so many of these cheap shots (don't get between Al Gore and a ham sandwich, harder to find than Michael Moore's neck, etc.) that it really got tedious and completely distracting. FWIW, at least he's not yet gone the full Michael Crichton (State of Fear) and turn a "novel" into nothing more than an Atlas Shrugged-type of political manifesto (Vince Flynn has came close in Extreme Measures). Anyway, there is a story buried in here and it's actually not that bad though somewhat overly convuluted, anticlimatic and lacking in action (compared to the first Dalton), but still not a bad listen or a complete waste of time.
