Publisher's Summary

For more than a decade, Ryan Kealey has been a key player in the war on terror. First, as a captain in the U.S. Army's third Special Forces Group, then as a contract operative with the CIA. His actions have saved thousands of lives, including that of the U.S. president. Now, once again, Kealey receives the call of duty - only this time, the odds for success are slim to none.Tensions between Pakistan and India are at an all-time high. To complicate matters, 12 American climbers have disappeared in the snow-capped peaks of Pakistan's Hindu Kush range. The president is demanding answers, but neither government is supplying them.As the conflict escalates, Brynn Fitzgerald departs Washington D.C. on her first official trip as acting secretary of state. Her goal is to serve as an intermediary between the leaders of both nations as well as to ensure all efforts are being made in the search for the missing American climbers. But when Fitzgerald's motorcade is ambushed on the outskirts of Islamabad, her back-up team arrives to discover a disastrous scene: dozens are dead, including seven diplomatic security agents, and the secretary of state has vanished without a trace.In the wake of the unprecedented attack, Kealey's operation goes into high gear. Once again, he is joined by Naomi Kharmai, the British-born analyst who has taken on a daring new role with the Agency. But Kharmai is becoming as unpredictable as the man they're going after, and as they work their way toward the target, it becomes clear to Kealey that anyone is fair game - and no one can be trusted.

3 for the author

Well I have to agree with the previous reviewer. I have no doubts that if I read this book it would get a 4 but the narrator lets it down badly. I try to choose books with british narrators especially if there is likely to be a range of characters male and female as I feel they tend to do better with different accents. If Im honest, I'd prefer this book read by a brit putting on an American accent as I feel they would have dealt with the 'english', 'French or was it Spanish' and 'Pakistani' accents. If this book was purely with American accents and just blokes in the main character roles the narrater would have been perfect. I know its difficult to get a male voice to play a female one but this was no where near and the female accents were appalling!The femaile CIA operative from Spain or was it France sounded like a drag queen impersonating Celine Dion! Accents aside, the story was excellent and it would have been higher if it wasn't for the narration. I assume the author doesn't have a say as to who narrates there book but if he did, i'd be tempted to give it 2! As a blind subscriber the quality of the narrator is as important as the author and in some cases can make a poor story better. In summary, the male American accents are excellent, female English/Asian CIA operative accent is palletable, the baddies (especially the General) accents are stereotypical and bad and finally the female CIA operative from Spain/France/French Canadian accent very very painful. You'd be better reading it yourself if you have the choice.

talking with clenched teeth isn't characterisation

Poor Mr Britton... he writes what is probably an amazing book, full of tension and political intrigue but somehow, some fool gave the narrator's job to one, Mr J. Charles... a narrator who decided that one character will be read throughout with clenched teeth (honestly!) to differentiate him from the others... one character (a woman) has a bizzare faux English accent and another has a sort of appalling French accent that is so toe-curlingly bad that it's embarrassing to listen to... result: 15 hours of wondering who the fool was who gave the narration job to Mr J. Charles... a person who delivers the same quality of narration as a seven year old would when told to stand up and read in front of a class. If there are audio police, I urge them to arrest the person who gave the job to Mr J. Charles and the man himself and charge them both with crimes against listeners everywhere.
