Noah Wolf is one of the world's most deadly assassins, completely devoid of emotion and conscience. These factors, which others would consider to be handicaps, allow him to evaluate situations instantly, and from a purely logical standpoint. His decisions and actions are never tainted by emotion or feelings, which frees him from any risk of fear or guilt.
When Team Camelot is handed an unusual mission to rescue the abducted daughter of a foreign president, Noah and the rest go into it with confidence, and are quickly successful. Back home, they are ready to celebrate, but something doesn't feel right. The mission was too easy, and there are indicators that someone may have discovered who they are and tracked them back to Neverland. Noah's house is entered while the team is away, and he is unable to shake the feeling that the mission was nothing but a ruse to expose E & E.
It doesn't take long for him to decide that they must return to the field, their new mission to track down a Russian counterpart of their own Allison Peterson. Nicolaich Andropov has marked Noah for termination, so Noah decides to use himself as bait to draw the man into a trap. Unfortunately, Andropov is known as a ghost, a man whose appearance is unknown, able to move in absolute secrecy and remain several steps ahead of any who pursue him. When Noah fails to recognize this fact, Sarah becomes a hostage and pawn in a battle to the death. There's only one tiny chance to save her, but it will mean Noah must go unarmed and alone to meet his nemesis. The game is on, with his own life and Sarah's as the prize.

Very big audible fan.
This audio was a very very good listen and kept me gripped from start to finish. I just love the team dynamics it is just like a family with some fun along the way. This has a lot of action and not a dole moment. I hope this is going to become a long lived series, with many more books to come. Another strong narration. If you want a listen to loose your self in then give this series a try. I'm off to see if i can find any information to when the next book in the series will be released.
"Noah may have some feelings after all..."
Any other David Archer book. He has a very recognizable style.
Really good storyline, well thought out plot involving a staged kidnapping and rescue that goes s little to easy. That's because the instigator planned it that way to locate and eliminate Noah and his team. When Noah's girlfriend is kidnapped though, the man who has no feelings has something he can't name! Guess there's some humanity still in there after all. The end will confirm this as well.
This is perfect for people who are opposed to cursing because I could probably count on one hand how many curse words were used in the entire book.
Overall HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.
If you found this review helpful please indicate so.
Better writing, better performance, a plot without such obvious holes.
Still love the adventure/intrigue genre but will not follow this particularly series and intend to return this first volume.
Not on your life! You know those voice actors who are masters of nuance? Who can smoothly and believably transition among several accents - British, Russian, Middle-Eastern, U.S. southern? Well, that ain't this guy. All of his voices sound like cartoon characters. There were Dudly Do-Right, Boris Badenov, Yogi Bear and I think even Mr. Ranger. The cadence was all wrong. And then there were the mispronunciations, STELLA-toe for stiletto, etc. Verner has a pleasant enough voice and did not stumble (by which I mean he mispronounced words with confidence) but I think he would make a better "announcer" than book narrator.
Disappointment. I use audio books for distraction during mind-numbing tasks, so I'm fairly tolerant if the writing or performance are not first class. But this was pure dreck,
In addition to the unskilled performance, the writing was poor. Dialog was stilted and uninteresting. Absolutely no humor here, folks.
It is M-eye six not M16 Mr. Verner. One is a covert branch of the British Secret Service and the other is an automatic weapon popular in the Vietnam era. They are quite different. If you had ever read a spy novel or watched a James Bond movie, you might have known the difference. Where were the editor and producer during the creation of this audio work, or are they equally clueless? The story is not much better. Where do all the high reviews come from? I don’t get it. We just can’t trust them when buying books.
"Another 5 star action thriller from David Archer!"
Noah Wolf Book 2, Lone Wolf, is even better than Code Name: Camelot. This espionage thriller is as good as any of the genre. Noah Wolf, the protagonist, is a man without fear or emotion due to some events during his childhood, but the emotion part seems to be cracking at least as it relates to the female member of his Team Camelot. The team is charged with eliminating and eradicating enemies of the US. Archer does a great job of developing his characters. Adam Verner does a excellent job of narration.
This book has my HIGHEST POSSIBLE RECOMMENDATION. Also, consider listening to the Sam Prichard series by the same author. David Archer has established himself in the top tier of suspense and espionage thriller authors.
"Wordt Book I've ever downloaded"
Thin plot and disjointed
If I never down loded it
I deleted it half way through couldn't listen any more
Definitely a book about a guy written by a guy. I am one who likes most types of stories and found this entertaining as an audio book. I would never have read the whole book, since it was lacking in depth throughout the book. Since I work with my hands it was just right...allowed me to work, think when I needed to, and encourage me to stay at my bench a little longer to hear what happened next.
"Author has great potential with his concept"
...but it's read like aimed at a 5th grader. M-16 is a gun, MI-6 is the British Intelligence Agency. there were so many faux pas with Intel terminology, over-explanation, and mutilation of pronunciation, that not only did it sound like it's aimed at a 5th grader, but written by one. The concept is great, but don't kill the story by explaining so many obvious actions. Of course the reader...needs to switch genres. To be fair to the author, it could be his performance that decimated this book. I'm going to keep with the series for now, book 3 getting a pass because it's already out. but after #4 or #5, I'll re-evaluate my decision. like I said, great concept...I love it. Wouldn't stick with it otherwise. Delivery...now that needs some work!
The story is not developed at all. The narrator is brutally amateurish in his voice alterations. And the characters are superficial. I have given up on David Archer.
Good action and teally good written. He did it again. No ro read nr three.
"Story good...needs different narrator"
Call me a narrator snob but with over 1400 audiobooks in my library, nothing annoys me more than when a narrator over acts. While he is good with the background narration, the conversations were stilted and made me
cringe. I kept thinking how much more enjoyable it would have been if Ray Porter or Jay Snyder narrated. I'm not even sure I'll get all the way through this one.
