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.

Wonderful and relentless thriller!

The Toymaker is Jake Pendleton series Book 2. Jake is no longer with the NTSB; he has moved on to international covert operations with another US agency. The title of the novel comes from the nickname of the old guy who recruits Jake into covert operations; the old guy makes gadgets useful in such operations such as super small drones. Jake is reunited with Gregg Kaplan in a operation against Islamic terrorists in Yemen.

Scott Brick does his normal outstanding job of narration.

The novels in the Jake Pendelton series can be read in any order. This is the one must read book in the series.
