Appalled at his family's extravagant lifestyle, Crown Prince Nasir vows to end the careless and destructive rule and sets in motion a top-secret operation to destroy the Saudi oil industry and bankrupt the monarch.

International intrigue, double cross and revenge

Where does Hunter Killer rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

A solid technothriller (the author puts the book in this 'genre' and an enjoyable listen. Could have been shorter without losing anything in my view.

What did you like best about this story?

The portrayal of french politicians ;-)
Interesting premise as to the sustainability of the Saudi ruling family and its economy. Food for thought

Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favourite?

Ret'd Admiral Morgan is still a great character if a little larger than life

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Not really as its too long for that but it definitely keeps you coming back for more

Any additional comments?

Please release Nimitz & Kilo Class as audio books. Read them both several times but I'd love to listen to the audio versions

I would recommend this book to all

The story was well written , well narrated, credible and exciting. I have read books for many many years but have found Audible to fit perfectly into modern life and times. There will always be the written word but Audible is simply the book in your pocket .

If only the UK had an Admiral Morgan.

The concept of this book was superb. In a small way I could see the French attempting something like this. Arne as always, the star of the book.
