Summary

In Trapping Zero (book 4), a terrorist cell in the Mideast gains a new, fanatic leader, one intent on orchestrating what would be the deadliest attack on American soil. Can Agent Zero uncover the plot and stop him in time?

Although Agent Zero’s daughters are home safely, the mental anguish from their experience weighs heavy on their small family. Zero, working to be a good father and to repair the damage, decides the time has come to undergo surgery to regain all of his memories. But will it work?

In the midst of it all, he is again thrust into the line of duty as a US embassy is destroyed in the Mideast and as an experimental new weapon is uncovered. But without his memories, with some of his own CIA allies intent on his destruction, whom can he really trust?

Trapping Zero (book 4) is a pause-resisting espionage thriller that will keep you listening late into the night.

Sometimes a bit fast fetched..

The difference between the reader of the first three books and fourth is day and night. Maria in the fourth book is now oriental and Kent steel lost his hard edge. I could not really concentrate when she was speaking. First three books was the terrorist group ahmEN. know prounouced ahmOOn?. As with book 3 great leaps and far fetched. But all in all a nice easy listen.

Terrible lazy writing

The first book in the series was ok, the second book was ok. The third book was similar and average the fourth is even worse with the same story line. Terribly poor lazy writing. I would definitely not recommend purchasing this book. The author should be embarrassed.

Explosive!!

I was very happy to see the fourth book in the Kent Steele series. I was also very disappointed to see that Edoardo Ballerini was not the narrator. I think Brian Callanan did a good job except for the female characters who all spoke haltingly and sounded almost robotic.
Anyway, the story itself is excellent. This one involves a small terrorist group separate from any of the well known extremists groups but with the same agenda, only they want to create the worst attack in history. Wiith help coming from inside the US they have a chance of succeeding.
Meanwhile, Kent Steele is having flashbacks. He goes to Zurich to find the doctor who was responsible for his memory loss. He finds him and the doctor attempts to help him retrieve what was lost. It gets a little hokey here and this whole part could have been left out. On the street he's recruited back into active CIA service never knowing that he's being set up. From this point on the action really starts and builds right up to it's explosive ending.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

Was my least favorite of the series

So far the series has been pretty good. But this title was a bit to unbelievable at times for me. They also changed the narrator for this book, and I think that is what really disappointed me. He made alot of his male characters sound alike, as well as kinda dorky.

Narration was not good

Loved the story however, the voice of the narrator in this book did not give life to the characters. It made Agent Zero sound weak. I liked the narration of the earlier books in the series. I would love to read about Maya’s adventures as an agent. Keep up the good writing and please go back to your book 3 narrator.

New narrator does not work

The new narrator is less than equal to previous books and makes it extremely painful to listen to the story. Why did they switch? The had a winning combination in previous books. Disappointed.

poor narrator

I love the Kent Steel novels by Jack Mars. This would have been so much better if Edoardo Ballerini (sp?), the narrator of the first 3 novels was able to narrate this one as well.

Overall a good read, but narrator not so good

I have to agree with the majority. The storyline itself I enjoyed; the new narrator's portrayal of the women in the story made me cringe. He was very stilted and choppy on the women's voices only, making him very difficult to listen to. Shame as I very much enjoy the Agent Zero series.

narrator change affected my experience

I'm sure there was good reason for the narrator change 3 books in, but it affected and changed the characters for me. Main characters went from cool to nerdy sounding.

AUDIBLE KNOW'S BETTER

A perfectly good story, written well by the author, dies at the hands of the narration fiasco. the first two novels were performed at a quick tempo that enhanced the energy of the story. Book three is read in a slow, choppy method which effectively killed the whole effort.
