Publisher's Summary

The most virulent weapon of mass destruction will be unleashed upon the world, but Delta Force veteran Daniel Strong isn't about to let that happen. Recalled from the depths of drug addiction and depression, Danny is the last chance for the CIA to stop an auction in New York where powerful weapons dealers are to bid for the right to proliferate a deadly neurotoxin. The road to finding the auction's location leads directly to the weapon's creator: a devil in Tory Burch flats and heroin addict who has committed the chemical compound to memory. Yet Danny isn't the only one chasing her. He must protect her from a sadistic Palestinian terrorist known only as Sabir, who wants to use the weapon to destroy Israel and will do anything - including torture - to get it. Danny must walk a fine line to control his obsession to resolve a dark secret from his past and his feelings for the chemist that could compromise the operation's objective - before it's too late.

    I am finding it difficult to write a review for this story. It was good, and it was very exciting but I have reservations. There was just too much going on with too many agencies involved. You had terrorists, FBI CIA mercenaries all sorts vying against each other plus tricks and mind altering drugs causing confused minds! Too much for one job to get a nerve agent away from the bad guys. I felt like everyone was the bad guy. Is that what the author is saying? I know I would destroy all discoveries that can have an evil as well as benign use, and never let them see the light of day. Humanity is too evil and can't be trusted to only do good for all.

    "Thriller"

    From the very beginning of the book I was drawn into the seedy world of terrorism in the Middle East, then to New York where we learn more about Danny’s background and how his life is again about to take a drastic turn., Extreme, flawed, brilliant, and dangerous characters are portrayed throughout . The book wasn’t predictable and the author is very knowledgeable about science and military technology. Great thriller.

    "A solid thriller"

    I was given this free review copy audio book at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

    Overall, a decent and entertaining experience. The narrator was fantastic. I hadn't heard anything from Eric G Dove before but I'll keep him in mind going forward. He did a great job of making characters come alive. My only beef with the story was that two of the main characters are drug addicts. I thought this took up too much of the story line. I see how this could give Danny empathy for Tory, but I found the talk of addiction a bit distracting. That being said, I still enjoyed the story and the plot did have a couple of turns I didn't completely expect. It's definitely worth a listen if you like these types of thrillers.

    Talk about a twisted web of deceit. This was a pleasant surprise and a good start to a series. It was an entertaining, engaging and interesting story with plenty of mystery, intrigue, action and suspense. There's also a bit of romance woven into the mix. ( As you can tell from the cover). It's definitely not predictable either, it goes from one twist to another. It keeps you on your toes trying to figure out what is going to happen next.

    It took me a couple of chapters to be completely pulled into the story but once I was it kept my attention until the end. There were a couple of times the writing could have been a bit more polished. On several occasions the same thing is being said in a slightly different way or the same information repeated within a couple of lines. It happened enough for me to notice it but not enough to effect my overall enjoyment of the story.

    The story is told through several different POV's and has a good cast of interesting characters. Both likable and many unlikable. Actually most of the characters are more unlikable but they great.

    A chemist that has an addiction to drugs is a dangerous thing. I'm surprised Kate didn't go insane from everything that was going on. Talk about head games, manipulation and deception. There is enough going on in this story to make a sane person go insane. Even though there is a reason for the route they (CIA) take to get the information they are after, it is an evil unto itself.

    Eric G. Dove does a great job with the narration. I haven't listened to a book he has narrated in a while. Seeing that he was the narrator is part of what drew me to the story. Side note - I had never realized before that he was a signer. Nice voice weather signing or narrating that is easy to listen to for long periods of time. He was the perfect choice of narrators for this story. His narration is clearly spoken with a nice even pace. Good character voices. He is able to bring the characters and story to life through his narration. Hopefully he will be narrating the rest of the series. Very enjoyable.
