Methodical Thriller, Kept me entertained
Dan Lenson is a naval officer hero, winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor, and main character in The Threat by David Poyer. Even though this is the 9th book in the series, this is first and only one I've found on Audible so I can only assume the others haven't been made into audio versions. The writing style is somewhat methodical, detailed and should appeal to military bufs. There's just enough action. I found this plot just a little bit off, with Lenson being put through a few too many hoops. And when he was put on the secret service detail for the President, that seemed somewhat farfetched. But, hey, it's fiction, and as fiction goes, it was entertaining enough to rate 4 stars. Reminded me a little of Vince Flynn novels.

A waste of time
An absolute waste of time. The author could not decide on a path for the main character. I could not figure out if he was going to be a drug enforcer, a terrorist specialist, or a Presidential assistant. The ridiculous dialogue of some type of conversation between plotters that reference a Zulu date time group before each part of the conversation was confusing and would only be understood by someone such as myself with a military communicaions background. I could not wait for this book to end. The only plus was the narrator who did a good job with poor material.
