Publisher's Summary

Former NTSB Investigator Jake Pendleton faces a dilemma as the line blurs between right and wrong. After his judgment comes into question, Jake is entrusted to his new mentor, an eccentric old man who sees beyond Jake’s flaws. A man who makes ‘toys for spies.’ A man known as The Toymaker.
Jake’s first assignment reunites him with Gregg Kaplan in a daredevil mission to rescue a fellow agent held captive in Yemen. He risks his life to stop the first attack of an al Qaeda mastermind. But now, with no one to trust but himself, can Jake stop the terrorist from destroying what is most precious to the free world? Unfortunately, more trouble comes his way as a killer from his past threatens something more important to Jake than his own life, leaving him to make the hardest decision any man ever has to make—Who to sacrifice.

Great book

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

This is a really good book. It is reminiscent of Brett Battles Jonathan Quinn series.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

This book is full of action from the very beginning a few surprises, a bit predictable at times but for the most part very good.

What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

Scott Brock could read the phone book and make it exciting!

Any additional comments?

I look forward to my next purchase which will be the third in this series Breach of Power.

Book is OK, but the narration kills it.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

Scott Brick is rated highly and I don't understand why. He OVER enunciates EVERYTHING! To the point where a character could be making coffee and the narration makes it seem like an arduous task that required months of contemplation. This eventually makes you miss the highlights of the story because there is no contrast in the telling. Its so bad, that it makes me feel dumb for tolerating the narration to get through the book.
