Publisher's Summary

Suzanne Brockmann's wildly popular Troubleshooters series showcases this master storyteller's rare gift for blending intense adventure with sensuous romance. And it all begins with The Unsung Hero, a heart-pounding tale of love that reveals hidden truths and brings two solitary people together against all odds.
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.

I gave this a three because I just dont know for s

What did you like best about The Unsung Hero? What did you like least?

How are you going to have a male and female narrator and have the woman do girl and boy voices? The man also does both girl and boy voices. This was poorly executed. I abandoned this book in the early stages due to the confusion. Please don't ever do that again, audible.


What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

I don't know. Couldn't get through it due to annoying narrator confusion.


Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Patrick Lawlor and Melanie Ewbank ?

Their voices were fine, but a little arrangement management will solve the glaring problem of continuity.
