I would recommend this to all friends.
The story is quick and exciting. A perfect combination between action, humor, charisma, heroism and friendship, bought together perfectly by the narration of R. C. Bray
Silk and Tommy are my favorite characters as they are smart hardmen who are seemingly fearless.
R. C Bray was first bought to my attention in The Mountain Man series, where he delivered an array of fantastic performances, ensuring that each character had their own voice and style, making it easy to distinguish between characters.
"Two FANTASTIC Books In One!!"
YES! This is the type of book I like listening to but so many fall short I have had the first in this series in my wish list for a long time but have been on the fence. When this came out I could not have been happier and bought it immediately. SORRY I waited so long
Yes I have and as always R C Bray gave a superb performance. He has made it onto my Top 5 narrator list.
I really enjoyed both of these books. Nick Bracco is a man who is great at his job of tracking down terrorists but they are tracking him as well. When they can't get him they choose his wife instead to draw him out. Even after he retires there are still terrorists out for his blood with a vendetta. Nick has a secret weapon, his Italian family who happen to be mob related. It's funny but you find yourself rooting for bad/good guys! They're kind of "nice" bad guys?¿ These books have well written plots, excellent character development and very believable situations. I looked for more but none, I sincerely hope that there are future books in this series.

"Action Packed, Loved the characters!"
I would absolutely recommend this to my friends and have. I'm usually a Sci-fi and Horror kind of guy but this book had me hooked from the go!
R.C. Bray is definitely one of my FAVORITE narrators. His unbelievable range of characters and voices can’t help but take every book he narrates to the next level.
"A lot of holes"
RC Bray is always good. The story felt like a badly written television show but I got through it.
"There's trouble in them hills"
I thought the audio version was well worth the credit and I know the way the characters were presented was as any characterization I could have created.
Woah? Pick one ...that would be impossible, but the scenes with Tommy are outstanding.
Tommy a views on life are classic,
Tommy, hands down was my favorite, he just lives life the way we would all enjoy
The Russian hit man at the end of the story and his take on life its value. And his view of respect
RC Bray is top notch. Gary Pongo tells a great tell. What else can you say?
