The story and the plot are pretty much run of the mill secret agencies story. If it wasn't narated by Jonathan Davis I would have probably returned the book, but Mr. Davis is so good that I could listen to him read a phone book and enjoy it.

What did you love best about Sympathy for the Devil?
The fast pace and old school thinking.
What was one of the most memorable moments of Sympathy for the Devil?
when Hicks has a drink in the hotel bar
What does Jonathan Davis bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?
I purchased this book as I am an avid fan of Mr Davis. He read Sandra Brown's Mean Streak, and I was hooked! Excellent reader as he becomes the hero/lead and brings everyone to life.
Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?
Yes, when Roger was given free access to work, it gave me a moment of pause! Whoa, boy what a vivid picture Roger painted.
Any additional comments?
This could become a nice series if author can continue to write a fast pace and clever next installment. Of course Mr. Davis must read it or don't bother to produce it.

I had never heard of this author but was looking to use a credit and the precis didn't sound too bad. And it is a decent enough story. It moves in fits and spurts and the reader makes a real effort to create excitement during periods of action.
There is a lot of dependency on big brother technology. None of the characters are likeable. May be that's the point, everyone is rotten. I would encourage the author to do more research into ballistics or consult an expert. If one shoots someone in the head with a Ruger .454, there isn't an exit wound, there is no head, if the perpetrator uses the described ammunition. I admit I am particularly cognizant of writers who insist on including firearms use but who need to spend more time learning the realities therein, so others may not care at all.
The novel ends with a definite sense that there will be a next novel with the same protagonist. A hero who never gets hurt or never does wrong gets boring pretty quick.
