After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the sighting as injury-induced imaginings. In a last-ditch effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorism team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton. As the town's infamous bad boy, Tom was always in love with Kelly, a sweet "girl next door" who has grown into a remarkable woman. Now he has one final chance for happiness, one last chance to win her heart, and one desperate chance to save the day.

Excellent story-tragic narration
If you could sum up The Unsung Hero in three words, what would they be?
Incredibly good book.
Who was your favorite character and why?
Impossible to choose just one.
What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?
I truly enjoyed Patrick Lawlor...but not enough to listen to Melanie Ewbank for another second! I couldn't finish listening to this book; it was just that painful. (I've got the book, and I'll just have to re-read the rest.) Have you ever listened to the pronunciation sample of an online dictionary? THAT is how Ewbank reads!! Every single sound of every single word is deliberately enunciated.
Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?
I was really engrossed in the book, but when I realized that I was cringing and dreading the POV changing to the heroine's, I turned it off.
Any additional comments?
This is a very well written book. It's the one that hooked me on SEALs. The WWII backstory is woven in seamlessly. I'm sorely disappointed that I couldn't bear to listen to all of it. Ewbank is better suited to reading how-to manuals.

New narration breathes life into this for me
Would you consider the audio edition of The Unsung Hero to be better than the print version?
I enjoyed this newly recorded audiobook better than the e-book.;
What other book might you compare The Unsung Hero to and why?
Other S. Bockmann books in The Troubleshooters series.
Have you listened to any of Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?
Mr. Lawlor and Ms. Ewbank have become the voices of the Troubleshooters. (Shout out to Rene Raudman on her narration on some titles as well). To have a good portion of this series re-recorded with their narration was a gift from the author and the narrators!
Any additional comments?
Ms. Brockmann's books and audios aren't for everyone. She has multiple points of view and many in this series include flashbacks to WW-II as well as the contemporary storyline. In the audios, Mr. Lawlor reads all characters when the POV is male and Ms. Ewbanks when the POV is female.
I always thought this first book in the series was very good but after struggling to finish the audiobook by the first narrator, I have never done a re-listen of this story. I have really enjoyed this re-listen and may have to continue with the rest of the series now!
