This was the last in the series, I've listened the all of them one after the other and they were excellent, the narrator was fantastic and really brought the stories to life. I really hope Scot and Thomas continue this series and Brian continues to narrate The best books I've listened to in a long time

A Sniper Elite Story not a Gil Shannon Story
Like the other books in this series it is well written, generally has good character development, a plot or plots that are not always obvious, and connects the reader emotionally to the story and characters. However, this is not a Gil Shannon story. If you loved the earlier books in this series, as I do, you should know this is not a Master Chief Gil Shannon fast paced adventure and action story. Gill plays only a minor role in this novel. And because of it I have struggled with how to rate this latest installment of Sniper Elite. I remind myself this is the “Sniper Elite’ series not the Gil Shannon series; however it was the do the impossible, do the right thing with a good moral compass, with a sense of humor all with fast action lead character that earned my loyalty to the series. Ghost Sniper is still a good book; I just feel some disappointment and unsatisfied after listening. Rating this book as an installment in the Sniper Elite series I have given it 4 stars because at the end of the day I realized I am not invested in the ‘active’ characters in Ghost Sniper something needed to get 5 stars from me. Bottom line, this is a good book, well written, certainly one of the best of this genre but it doesn’t set the hook for the series as the earlier books do.

Loved the series up until now
Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?
I have really enjoyed the series until now. This latest installment was a disappointment. I don't mind that Gil wasn't the main character however I do mind that he has lost his moral compass. I used to like him being grounded by his life in Montana on his ranch with a wife that he loved. I've lost all respect for him at this point. I guess the author needed a character with less moral integrity to keep it interesting. And as far as Pope goes, it was confusing trying to keep track of who he was loyal to and who he wasn't. It was a shame to see his total disregard for those who had fought for him and put him in the position he currently holds.
Would you recommend Ghost Sniper to your friends? Why or why not?
I would recommend the previous installments but not this one.
What does Brian Hutchison bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I enjoyed Brian's performance.
Do you think Ghost Sniper needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?
Not really. Gil was the main character and I've lost all respect for him.
