Publisher's Summary

THE ALL-NEW KGI NOVEL from the "incredibly awesome" (Jaci Burton) #1 New York Times bestselling author of When Day Breaks.
The Kelly Group International (KGI): A super-elite, top secret, family-run business.
Qualifications: High intelligence, rock-hard body, military background.
Mission: Hostage/kidnap victim recovery. Intelligence gathering. Handling jobs the U.S. government can't...
The enigmatic Hancock has been both opponent and ally to the KGI teams for as long as they've known him. Always working a deep game, Hancock's true allegiance has never been apparent, but one thing is for certain - he never lets anything get in the way of duty.
But now, his absolute belief in the primacy of his ultimate goal is challenged by a captive he's been ordered to guard, no matter how much she suffers in her prison. She's the only woman who's ever managed to penetrate the rigid walls surrounding his icy heart, but will he allow his perplexing feelings for the beautiful victim to destroy a mission he's spent years working to complete or will he be forced to sacrifice her for "the greater good."

Miracles happen!!

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

This is very different to the rest of the series in that KGI only appear in the last 1/3 of the book. But there is info on the current state of things within KGI family if that is what you want. This is a departure in that this is all about Hancock and Titan with the death of a titan member. It is very dark in tone so not an easy read at times with all the torture and mind games that is part of the story, but having said that it sets up things for the end. so overall a dark and painful read but well worth it

Who was your favorite character and why?

Conrad was a fav character. He kind of kept Hancock from imploding a few times and was Honor's safe harbour and in the end he saved the day in his own way.

What aspect of Tad Branson’s performance might you have changed?

he cant do female voices!!! he had little change between the male voices so hard to follow at times.

Any additional comments?

It was great to see the Hancock from past books get taken down by a 5 foot woman. There is also more info about why he helped Grace/Elizabeth and why he saved Marin form past books. It was great to see that even the iceberg called Hancock had a heart in the end.

One gripe: when KGI go enmasse to see Honor confront Hancock, you get the build up with them all in the house and she goes upstairs to confront him and you expect there to be something when she comes back down and KGI ripping into Hancock and teasing him but there is NOTHING!!! That is the biggest let down ever!!!

If it could have been zero stars

Absolutely awful from start to mid point when I gave up.. And the narration is like he's saying a prayer apart from the dialogue.
