Summary

Meet Brady Hawk.

Former Navy SEAL. Former Peace Corps worker. Current blacks ops assassin.

To those with the highest security clearance, it's a line item known only as Project X. But to the half-dozen agents and personnel working for it, it's known as Firestorm, a black ops group so dark that the US president doesn't even know about them yet. And no agent is as skilled as Brady Hawk.

This box set includes First Strike, Deep Cover, and Point of Impact.

Brady Hawk books 1-3

It was a good pass the time narrative. Quite a few holes and jumps in the story. The narration suited the story. Overall, an enjoyable listen.

A great read , v good value.

Characters move at speed to defeat terrorists. Very relevant to today. Plots are well written. The narrator builds momentum and adds to enjoyment of each book.

I really wanted to read the next book each time I finished one. I am looking forward to the next set.

Well worth it.

Terrorist be afraid

I enjoyed this non stop action adventure and what's even better with this three book box set it doesn't have to end. I don't normally like box set but if I do have one to listen to I break the books up and listen to something different inbetween, so I don't get the stories confused or get through them to quickly. But that wasn't the case with this set as the books didn't exactly end on a cliff hanger but I wanted to see what the author has in store for the characters next. Each book is told by multiple characters as the story unfolds but this works well as you know what both sides are up to. There is plenty of action to keep each book interesting and with all good spy books you are never sure who to trust, or who the good guys are (other than the main character Hawk and his computer analyst Alex). Off to start the next box set.
FIRST STRIKE, Book 1. I enjoyed this book and before it ended I was getting the next box set but I think this was the weakest book in the set because it just came to an end and I got confused with all the foreign name whether Hawk got his man.
Hawk a former Navy seal and former Peace Corps worker is now working for firestorm a government black ops group run by Senator Blunt. Hawk, with the aid of his computer analyst or handler Alex, is on the the trail of Ghazi, the chief bomb maker for the terrorist group Al Hasib in the hopes of stopping him before he can set off another attack. But Hawk is betrayed and must find his own way out of a hostile country. Back at home things aren't much better and someone is making plays to take down firestorm. Can Alex get Hawk back home or is he on his own?
DEEP COVER, Book 2 This was my favourite book as I really liked the story line and characters in this one.
Hawk is going under cover on a safari hunt in order to get close to the man that owns a diamond mine that he is using to help fund terrorist and could be the possible owner of a stolen nuclear weapon. With time running out and a collapse in the mind is Hawk about to become the hunted? Back home Alex and the Senator are once again the focus of a group trying to take firestorm down.
POINT OF IMPACT, Book 3
After the big shame up in the firestorm organisation things are back to normal but this time things get personal for Hawk when a sleeper cell for Al Hasib sets it sights on a US target. An ex girlfriend's father gets killer in a boating accident but Hawk doesn't believe it. Then firestorm receives word that the man Hawk believed was his father is a target. Hawk is to late to stop him from getting kidnapped but will be be to late to stop a bomb going off? Or to rescue him?
I liked the narrator, he did some good accents throughout the three books. I especially like his New Zealand accent in book two.
I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Dropping this series

Characters shallow. Storyline equally thin.
Narration. Best Irish Arab accent I ever heard. Waste of time.

Terrible. :(

Awful writing, equally awful narration. It’s difficult to believe this was published. No sophistication and not enough writing skill to pull you into the story.

Just could not bring myself to finish it!

What would have made The Brady Hawk Series, Books 1-3 better?

Better story writing and/or better narration. Pretty basic storyline, problem is that Patterson uses too many words in the back and forth of a conversation.

Would you ever listen to anything by Jack Patterson again?

I'd be hard pressed to listen to Patterson's writing again...the style is too elementary... almost mildly insulting at times.

How did the narrator detract from the book?

I believe Dwight Kuhlman just tries too hard. The voices all sound forced. I paused this book to listen to another narrated by Ray Porter. Porter is a fantastic narrator. Now, returning to this Patterson book, (I'm 8 1/2 hours into this 16 1/2 hour tri-book) I've decided I cannot continue with it. I'll return it without finishing... that's very unusual for me.

What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

I was constantly asking myself, how much longer can I listen to this book.

Any additional comments?

Although I gave the book two stars across the board, I cannot, in good conscience, recommend either Jack Patterson nor Dwight Kuhlman

Almost an anti-drone rant

Ok, I get it, Paterson hates the use of drones in the war on terrorism. The first book beats you over the head with his paradigm. Please say that up front so readers or listeners can make an informed decision prior to purchasing the book.

Don't Bother

The stories lack depth and detail. Problems are solved 'instantly' without a great deal of development, tension, or detail. We are told about the characters rather than letting their personalities and details unfold through actions. Simple story telling yet confusing story line. And stories are repetitive. Protagonist is sent on mission to save the world yet he spends a good bit of time 'black' with no support, while at least two other story lines are running back home. the narrator is ok. The attempt to do accents at times sound Irish. I turned the series off half way through the second book and went looking for something else to listen to. If you like a story rich in detail, character development try Brad Taylonr's Pike Logan, Jack Coughlin's Kyle Swanson,Brian Haig and Vince Flynn's Mitch Rapp.

Sorry excuse, poor copy cat...

I had high hopes for this series, but after listening to the first of three books, it was clear that the author had no real knowledge of special operations or intelligence operatives and how they behave/speak/act. The plot and storyline are basically a complete rip off from other more notable series written by people that lived the life of special operators. Pretty certain they had to include 3 books for the price of 1 just to make up for the extremely poor quality.

I feel like listening to the 2 final books was a complete waste of time, but I felt a compulsion to finish what was already purchased/started... Found myself literally insulting the book out loud in the car while listening. These books/author are a complete rip off from series like Mitch Rapp, Grey Man, and Tier One (Jack Dempsey). Poor quality writing, tons of filler, completely inaccurate depiction of how an operator would act/speak/think - honestly sounds like a house wife wrote the book...

so bad, I had to write my first rieview

Think Naked Gun/ Airplane, if they were trying to be serious. The word cliche is an understatement. Every situation, every bit of dialogue, every character, hate to say even the narration, is so predictable, it should be a lame attempt at comedy. Sadly it's not even that. I suffered through the first book, waiting for it to reveal itself as an attempt at comedy, but... no. I cant believe this was published.

There is a reason for the discount

While these books may be classified as Mystery-Thriller (Espionage), they are not in the same league as Vince Flynn, Brad Thor, Daniel Silva and Mark Greaney. I had to punt one-third of the way through the first book. The characters are not well developed and there are large gaps of common sense on how they interact or work in this genre. (Espionage/Military – Tier One)

Skip them.

Awful!

I’m so disappointed because I bought the 3 book box set and listened to the first couple while doing some distracting activities. Book 3 was so hard to slog through.
This “hero” is on the home team but he’s a bad human. The author seems to celebrate the frequent lapse of the main character’s morals. He has no qualms about admitting enjoying killing. Apparently the badness of the enemy is justification for enjoying the killing.
What is scary is that this isn’t included as a twist. It’s there because the author thought it would be normal.
Also... all the dialogue including when characters are talking to themselves is as bad as I’ve ever heard. Second grade level is generous.

totally lame.

overly simplistic, predictable, redundant. One of the worst reads I've had in a long time. I even returned it
