Brilliant start to series!

Wow, Charles knocks it out of the park again with this assassin book. Action and mystery throughout sprinkled with his tell-tale dose of wit and sarcasm throughout!
Can’t fault the story and I’ve just downloaded book 2!
As for the narration, Jeffrey is amazing too. His characters are easily distinguished with great voices and he’s a perfect pairing for Charles’ books being able to pull off the dark, seriousness of the situations as well as switching to the snide (enough to make you smile!), sarky remarks.
Really love this combo!
This is my honest opinion of a free review copy.

Memory is unreliable.

Jeffrey Kafer is G, a Letter, one of 26 literally nameless assassins working for the International Refugee Society (the IRS: yes, a deliberate choice of acronym). All have had their memories wiped, signed up for a ten year period, and are killers for hire without remorse to hinder their performance. Except that, with another five years of his contract still to go, G wants to know who he was before he was a Letter. And he wants to know now: it's interfering with his concentration.

More than a simple spy/assassin story, this action filled cyber short is packed with action, humour,contemplation of individual right and wrong, cyber enhancements and a kind of romance. There's also betrayal and conspiracy, as well as - well, you really need to read the book for yurself. Jeffrey Kafer gives a superb performance, a slick, fast talking sardonic reading perfectly in tune with the written word. It might not be great literature, but it's a fun, if violent, story, well written and narrated and definitely recommended

My thanks to the rights holder of Infiltrator: Agent G I, who, at my request, freely gifted me with a complimentary copy via Audiobook Boom. I loved it and look forward to book II.

Espionage at it's finest!

Agent G is one of 26 hitmen for hire, working for the International Refugee Society (IRS). His memories of his previous life were wiped away even as cyber enhancements were installed. With the promise of restoring his memories, Agent G patiently works off his time for the IRS. His current mission is to infiltrate the opposition, the Carnivale, which is run by Caesar and his family. However, a mole within the IRS is making this a tricky, and possibly deadly, assignment.

Once again, Phipps brings me quality entertainment. This was a very fun read that had just enough seriousness to make me care about the characters and their fates. As Agent G wonders what kind of man he was before his time with the IRS, I too hoped he would find out and that it would be good for him. Each agent is assigned a handler (or personal assistant) and Marissa is assigned to Agent G. The two have a connection on a personal level. Marissa, like the Agents, has also had her memories wiped and has been enhanced to some extent by the IRS. However, she is much more replaceable than Agent G, so he sometimes worries about jeopardizing her life.

Besides the great characters, there’s plenty of fancy tech for us cyberpunk fans. Weapons, drugs, and criminal intrigue permeate this story. Agent G has plenty of mods and many of them come into play as he tries to wend his way through this double crossing, mole infested plot.

I also really enjoyed the ‘bad guys’, some of which are truly bad guys. Caesar and his adult kids bring out another side to Agent G, especially when he has to allow himself to be seduced. Yep, there’s a few sexytimes scenes sprinkled throughout the book. They were fine though not terribly erotic. That’s OK because Agent’s G’s sex appeal is written all over him with his competency and focus.

All around, it was a very fun listen and I look forward to seeing where Phipps takes this story next.

I received a free copy of this book.

The Narration: Jeffrey Kafer is still one of my favorite narrators. He has the perfect voice for Agent G. It’s a touch gravelly but still sounds like a man in his 30s. I liked his mild Italian accent for the Casesar. Also his voice for Persephone (one of the people in charge at the IRS) was clipped and domineering, just like I pictured her.

Borrowed ideas but a good read.

If you could sum up Agent G in three words, what would they be?

Thriller,Creative,Interesting,

What did you like best about this story?

It is a combination of many characters that have been created by other writers.

In this sense it is a Sci-Fi story that is a hybrid of a thriller and mystery.

Which character – as performed by Jeffrey Kafer – was your favorite?

It takes getting used to his performance but he did a good job with all the characters.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

Powerful thrilling, exciting, and chilling read

Any additional comments?

I really liked this audio when I think ahead to the future I can see this being it. The story goes into the aliens and the issues they had and have with them. When I think about the time they come to earth I really hope I am not here to see it. I do not see any good coming out of it. The author goes into issues that could be touchy from the dead to being a live, the world is not as we know it today. States may or may not be there. The things they do with items we hold precious will blow your mind. Really the whole story is wonderful planned down to the last detail the whole book is mind blowing. I have no trouble picturing this as our future.

Mr. Kafer does a great job in his narration he has an agent voice that really pulls you in as he becomes part of his characters. His voice at first I didn’t care for because it sounded so agent like but I came to understand that is how it needed to be and grew to love it. It is a very strong voice that pulls you in making you forget you are listening as it becomes more of a movie. There are no background noise, no volume changes, and no repeats of working. His character voices are wonderful from his males to his females. His computer voice is so real just like you would picture it. He really brings the danger alive, as well as the excitement from each new obstacle that is overcome. Mr. Kafer puts a lot of emotion into his audio’s giving the reader a wonderful listen. His voice and tones never leaving you guessing you know just what each character is feeling from their excitement to their anger. His performance is outstanding giving you a clear, clean crisp audio you get lost in.

My heart went out to Agent G what it must feel like not to know who you are. Having to overcome so much and learn everything all over again. Than as he felt he was part of the military at one time I really felt for him and what he had become. There is a love interest as well as confusion on his part and on the computer chip in his mind. The world this author built seemed so real as well as the characters. This was an audio I couldn’t put down from the many different things the future holds and the new things it brings as well as the danger, excitement of all the twist and turns that are just so thrilling and at times chilling. You will never see California or Tennessee along with a few other states the same again. As I listened to this it remind me of the movie V where the aliens wanted and took what they wanted. This is how I see the future if they ever make it here.

I was a little confused at first of what a walk about was but it wasn’t long before the author brought to life just what it entitled and the danger it brings. This is a story of starting over, meeting your past and future head on, reality as well as the danger it brings. It is a story of hope and death, making a difference and just what the military means. What if there was no military who would save us? People become to set in their ways over looking issues but one man sees the future and knows the day will come when we must fight with all we have to keep everyone alive. There are those that feel this fight will never come as they wear their rose color glasses they are in for a rude awaking.

I was drawn from the first page as G is born, how he felt, his confusion and his fight to stay alive and bring justice to a world he doesn’t know. There are things one should never forget, one is how to fight keeping your love ones safe. One man gives his all and may die to save us all. It is setup for the next book in the series at least I hope there is another one. It really hit home for me how easy one gets use to the life we live and forget what we need to remember. I totally was invested and loved this plot, the characters that seem so real. I can hardly wait for the next book I wonder who it will be. There are others on the walk about will they be as interesting as G? I can’t wait to find out what this author has in store for us.

A thoroughly enjoyable technothriller

Agent G: Infiltrator is a fast-paced technothriller about a futuristic assassin appropriately named "G". G's job is to kill people for money. He has to do it for 10 years and they will give him his memory back. I can tell you one thing, this is way more than a story about a sci-fi assassin.

My honest "blurb" explanation of this book is Jason Bourne meets Hitman with a little bit of an overarching feeling of Memento. And to be honest, I'm proud of that explanation. There are parts of this book that felt like they were pulling from the Bourne books and movies while other parts felt like they were expanded on from the Hitman video games (I never saw the movie).

C.T. Phipps can write. Wow, can he write. He was able to make me laugh one second and be completely engulfed in another theory the next. G was easily one of the most memorable characters I've read in a long time. He had an attitude that I can relate to and every time he was snarky or said something smart I had a good chuckle. A lot of books like this can be so serious throughout making them feel longer than they are, but the comedic breaks throughout this really made the pages and hours fly by.

Tie that with the incredible narration by narrating phenom Jeffrey Kafer and you have a hit. Kafer was perfect for this book. I listen to a lot of books and this was easily one of the best fits I've heard in quite some time.

Every time I thought I had this book figured out I was wrong and it threw me for another loop. There were a few times that I thought I'd figured the ending out -- nope! Not even close, nice try Brian.

Overall, Agent G: Infiltrator was an incredibly enjoyable technothriller sci-fi assassin book that was fun. You can't say a lot of books are fun... but I enjoyed the heck out of it. If you enjoy conspiracy theories, the singularity, cyborgs, and good old clean assassin fun -- Agent G: Infiltrator is definitely for you.

I was given a free copy of Agent G. This has not affected my review in any way.

I'd give this 6 stars if I could!

When I heard this was coming out, I checked the blurb, being a big fan of this author. I got super excited about the premise, and couldnt wait to get it. Well, I got a copy and listened to it in one sitting. It blew me away, it was that good.

The story revolves around Agent G, an assassin who works for the Society, a charity front that arranges high tech assasinations for large sums of money. If you have the money, they have the assassin for you! Assasins, named A to Z, are mindwiped, and are told they will be well paid and get their memories back after 10 years of service to the Society. This is the scenario G finds himself in. All the agents are cybernetically enhanced, both mentally and physically, and have beyond imagination black technology, real secret squirrel stuff.

This is the situation G finds himself. After he is ambushed at the Boston airport by a rival organization, the Carnivale, during a recall of all Society agents, it is discovered the Society has a mole in its midst. The mole is uncovered, and G is tasked with infiltrating the Carnivale and assassinating its leader, the Caesar and his daughter, a killer assassin in her own right. What commences is a wild ride of betrayals, plans within plans, gunfights, killer cyborg duels, torture and discovery for G, as he discovers more about the past that was wiped from his mind. In the end, he finds who he can really trust, and it's not who he expected. He has to decide what he really wants to be, and if the price for being that person is worth paying.

As always with a CT Phipps book, the story is very character driven. Whether its G, who is conflicted on many levels, his handler Marissa, with a shady past G is only becoming aware of, Persephone, the shadowy ice queen director of the Society or even the Caesar and his children, the characters are well defined, their actions making sense in context with their characters. They are fleshed out in subtle but important ways, being much more than just two dimensional cardboard cutoouts sterotypes of spies, assassins and villains. The setting is interresting, with locations and action occurring around the world. The dialogue is also crisp, swinging between serious and snark easily, depending on the situation. The story never lags with unneeded exposition, keeping a taut thriller feel.

As far as narration goes, Jeffery Kafer was definitely at his best for this one. Whether the voices were male or female, cyborg, computer, Italian or a variety of American accents, Jeffery nailed them all. He brought each character to life, giving them a vibrancy you get really attached to. His narration of the story never lags, keeping a good flow and is never monotonous. Overall, I would have rated the whole effort six stars if they had that rating. As it is, get this book if you like sci fi or thrillers!

Amazing !!!

I was truly not accepting such a good written book.
C. T. Phipps have actually done a remarkable job with this book, and Jeffrey Kafer narrated it perfectly, I’m really awestruck on what was accomplished here !
Great story, easy to understand and enjoyable, everything we would love to have in all books.

Not much to say only that I fully recommend this one to all.



Ive received this book for free for an honest review and I believe that I’ve done so.

What would you do...?

The main character, G, a cybernetically enhanced superspy finds himself facing crossroads that lead him to a life of action, intrigue, betrayal and assassination. This book is the turning point of his existence as a “Letter”. While I listened to Mr Kafer masterfully enunciating the agent’s thoughts I find myself wondering what would my decision have been in those situations. C.T. Phipps made me care about this apparently despicable character to the point that I wanted G to succeed, no matter the cost.

I loved the book and I’ll be listening to the rest of the series.

Surprising!

So, I don't want to give anything away, but this book was an anthem about twisted loyalty, deceit, lies, and conspiracy. Superbly convoluted and well-executed. This was my second time listening and I've already downloaded book two. If you like shadowy agencies, whether or not they are government sanctioned, filled with intrigue and assassins, snag this series. It's epic, and the narration is perfect.

A mixture of amazing concepts for a great produc

Take the letter agents if MIB, with a splash of Jason Bourne, a mix of the echo clones (spoiler) and this is what you get. Multiple groups of elite assassins competing with each other and changing the world. Rogue agents, intrigue, meddling politicians, twists and turns that will leave you begging for more. I was voluntarily provided this free review copy audiobook by the author, narrator, or publisher.

An adventure worth repeated listens

I have listened to other C. T. Phipps books and this is my favorite. Well-written story with captivating characters, convincing action and plot, and a slap-in-the-face, diabolical ending. Jeffrey Kafer delivers a memorable performance, a perfect fit for the main protagonist, setting the tone for the entire book of characters.

a great starter to a new series

a very good short listen. (about 6.5hrs) it is a great introduction and origin story to get to know a new protagonist/ antagonist. though i feel some areas could of had a bit more, the surounding context makes up for it and the emotion within gives justification.

the telling by Jeffery Kafer is once again on top, making this story come to life in your mind and really feel for Agent G all the way through.

this makes me exited for the next installment of agent G's adventures
