Now, over ten years and a stint in Iraq later, Alex is approached by a man who has information about her father and wants to help her find him.
But there's a catch. The man works for Stonewell International, a security firm that specializes in fugitive acquisition. And in return for their help, Alex must agree to run point on an extremely dicey mission. One that will take her behind the walls of a brutal and dangerous women's prison near the coast of the Black Sea.
When Alex finally agrees, she has no idea what she's gotten herself into. She may find her father, but she could very well lose her life.

For Poe, two great best-selling authors, Brett Battles and Robert Gregory Browne, combine their collective forces and storytelling talents to bring us a thrilling adventure witch you will not be able to put down until the last word fades away.
Alexandra Poe is a bounty hunter! She is a beautiful woman, while being also very tough and capable to hold her own in any fight or difficult situation. After spending her youth working for the Army, even taking part in the 2nd Golf War, she is approached by a man, that tells her a secret and makes her an offer witch will turn her life upside down.
Alex decided to join the Military, at an early age, after her mom died tragically and her father vanished, falling off the face of the earth, after he was put under suspicion of treason. Alex’s only family is her brother, and now, 10 years later she learns that someone knows where her father is hiding. That someone is the man with the secret. He works for Stonewell International, a security firm that tried to recruit Alexandra Poe in the past, but now, driven by her obsession to reach her father, she has to accept a contract from them, but the contract will be more then she has bargain for.
Poe’s adventures will breathlessly cary us, from the boulevards of Paris, France, to Galați, a small town in Romania, to Switzerland and the United States, while Mystery, intrigue, covert operations, espionage and prison breaks will keep the reader glued to the pages, making hours pass like a blur.
Brett Battles and Robert Gregory Browne are both awesome thriller writers by themselves, and they created a very interesting, com pelling, thrilling and suspenseful story, with likable characters and on the razer’s edge action for this first Alexandra Poe novel.
The audiobook version of Poe is performed by the actress Abby Craden and she is quite good! I enjoyed her narration before with other ,female characters from The Passage and The Summer Guest, both books written by the great Justin Cronin. She has a very pleasant voice and manages to bring Alex and all the other characters to life. Abby reads the story, never hurrying, taking her time, filling it with passion, doubt, hate, love, compassion and other emotions, treating the listener to a great acting performance. I will listen to more audiobooks narrated by Abby.
Poe is a great book, The plot is very interesting, the characters lifelike and the action never stops. I really enjoyed the audiobook version of it and I am deffinetly looking forward for more of Poe’s Adventures.
