Summary

A senior American security adviser is missing, presumed kidnapped for his top-level military intelligence. FBI Assistant Director Martha Meyerstein needs to track him down before classified information gets into the wrong hands. She needs Jon Reznick on board.

The former black-ops assassin is supposed to be on vacation with his daughter, but when Meyerstein calls, it doesn't pay to keep her waiting. Her elite team is convinced that the missing diplomat's expertise in the Persian Gulf points to an Iranian terrorist cell, but Reznick isn't so sure. His gut instinct tells him they're all wrong. Never one to play by the rules, he finds himself working alone, following a lead that everyone else has dismissed. But to Reznick, the suspect seems a little too clean...

When the team comes under attack, the kidnapping is exposed as part of a much wider conspiracy, one far more dangerous than Meyerstein feared. Nothing and nobody is safe - and only Jon Reznick stands between national security and a campaign of unprecedented terror.

Better than the first

This is the second book in this series & very enjoyable with an original storyline. However, I'm put out by a couple of things: Why was there no overt admission of getting it wrong and admitting that Jon was right! And why did she foolishly allow him to use the bathroom? Every one could see that coming!!! That was disappointing.

But this is an enjoyable series - only 5 titles thus far.

A must buy audible.

Yes this Jon Reznick series is a fun listen filled with multiple red herrings to keep the listener engaged. Kaffer once again does an outstanding job in his narration just as he did in book one.

From assassin to FBI consultant...

Reznick is back and he's teamed up with the FBI once more. That a bit of an unexpected turn for the character given that he was first introduced as an assassin. Now he's forsaken his full-black operational status to team up with the FBI as a consultant? The transition isn't logical and it's never appropriately explained over the course of the book. It almost feels like Reznick is just going with the flow, even if that flow involves terrorists and counterespionage investigations.

I'm not entirely sure I understand the character's career motivations, but the book makes for a compelling adventure. Bring on book #3!

Excellent story line and exceptionally well read

Kafer's performance is so good, that I missed listening to him when I had the opportunity to read the book. This book is even an improvement over the first in the series with a fascinating plot that kept one wondering.

As I have come to expect from Turner and Kafer

Very good but not great-a couple of minor stumbles(wasn't aware there was a melody to the Lord is my shepherd) somewhere around chapter 20, and "wasn't sure how Adam Ford ?fitted? into the picture." But as usual it kept me involved. Was a little surprised by the cliffhanger, but a good series, awaiting the next one.

Good assassin read and listen..



Another exciting story about Jon Reznick helping the FBI catch a killer. Unfortunately, this book made a lot of the politicians in our government look really bad. AND the killer ended up getting away. Maybe he’ll show up in another book.

Reznick worked with Martha Meyerstein again but I gotta say no one seems to sleep in these books.
Reznick is forever popping Dexedrine and he and Martha drink tons of coffee, as if that’s the cure for never needing sleep. It’s really kind of silly.

Also, one reviewer gave it 1 or 2 stars because Martha, as Assistant Director of the FBI, went out into the field, Martha being “middle age” and all. Well, Martha is in her 30’s and if that’s “middle age” then I’m ancient.

This was a very good story and again I totally enjoyed it. There wasn’t any kind of sex or thoughts of sex but the F-bomb was used 57 times.

As to the narration: Jeffery Kafer, again, has a great reading voice and his men are perfect but his women’s voices still stink AND still I don’t mind. If there had been any kind of romance I would have minded.

Fast Moving and Exciting Story!

I am thoroughly enjoying the Reznick audiobooks. Lots of action and excitement. For me, a narrator can make or break a great story. Jeffrey Kafer is the perfect complement to JB Turner’s Reznick character! I have found another favorite narrator!

Book 2 is great

The main character is swept in the events that will keep you listening to the end.
