A bold English adventurer; an invincible Japanese warlord; a beautiful woman torn between two ways of life, two ways of love - all brought together in an extraordinary saga of a time and a place aflame with conflict, passion, ambition, lust, and the struggle for power.
of an outstanding story. To have the book come to life thanks to the narrator making each character so real that you forget that each voice comes from a single person. To have the added benefit of someone else taking the effort out of trying to 'read' the Japanese correctly so effortlessly allowed me to become so immersed in the story that I actually begrudged real life inserting itself into fuedal Japan.
For Mack McKinley and his team of GhostWalker killing machines, urban warfare is an art. But despite a hard-won knowledge of the San Francisco streets, Mack knows from experience that too many things can still go wrong. Danger was just another part of the game--and now he's come face-to-face with a woman who can play just as tough. She's Jaimie, a woman with a sapphire stare so potent it can destroy a man. Years ago she and Mack had a history--volatile, erotic, and electric.
Another brilliant book within the Ghostwalker series with the characters really brought to life by an exceptional narrator.
When radical terrorists take hostages in Indonesia, Captain Ezekiel Fortunes is called to lead the rescue team. Part of a classified government experiment, Zeke is a super soldier with enhanced abilities. He can see better, run faster, disappear when necessary, and hunt the enemy along any terrain. There are those in the world willing to do anything for power like that. A formidable spy genetically engineered to hide in plain sight, Bellisia rarely meets a man who doesn't want to control her or kill her. But Zeke's different.
Would you try another book written by Christine Feehan or narrated by Jim Frangione?
I have all the Ghostwalker books as its my favourite Christine Feehan series but I will not buy another audio with Jim Frangione as the narrator. His voices all sound the same and his accents are barely there.Very disappointing.
Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Jim Frangione?
I really wish they had managed to get Tom Steckshulte to have read this one too. Failing that, there must be someone that has a wider vocal range to give the different characters more definition and with a better grasp of the required accents.
Any additional comments?
I love all the Ghostwalker books that are based in and around New Orleans. Nonny is an endearing character who ties all the books into a mini series within a bigger story arc but it is one I love returning to.
