Summary

Step aside Rambo, Sam Savage is in town!

For some men and women, the Vietnam War never ended....

Sky Marshal and former Army Ranger Sam Savage has just been handed his most dangerous assignment yet, and it has nothing to do with keeping a plane full of innocent people safe while cruising the friendly skies at 35,000 feet. This time, the sky marshal is on the trail of a New Viet Cong terrorist bent on wreaking havoc on a hotel full of American and Chinese businesspeople. Channy Linn is a new breed Viet Cong in that he’s not just leading a band of militant irregulars who are defending their home turf. They are instead a band of terrorists, a la Al Qaeda, bent on the violent destruction of anyone or anything that doesn’t follow their twisted ideology.

Along with his field asset, the beautiful but lethal Cindy, Sam will go on the hunt for Channy beginning in Bangkok, Thailand, making their way through Cambodia and finally into the jungles of Vietnam, where Sam will face one of the most terrifying ordeals of his life - being trapped inside the narrow underground tunnels of Cu Chi.

For listeners of Mark Dawson, Boyd Morrison, Lee Child, Russell Blake, and more, New York Times best-selling Thriller Award winning author Vincent Zandri invents yet another action/adventure character who most definitely should not be messed with. This novel promises to keep you glued to your seat for the entire journey.

Savage is Awesome!

Sam Savage, sky marshal, hero and wiseass. Whilst gathering surveillance on a known terroist in Vietnam Sam ends up in the fight of his life. The writing is excellent and Andrew's narration really brings Sam to life. Warning there are scenes of extreme violence, so this book may not be for the squeamish.

Out-Rambos even Rambo.

No need to reprise a plot line as it is fully covered in the synopsis.
This thriller featuring Air Marshall Sam Savage (what a great name for an action hero) has him leaving his comfort zone of the air to turn into on-the-ground spook and warrior as he confronts a leader of the New Viet Cong. Plenty of explosive action as well as terrors of the more earthy kind. Scary stuff. All was very fittingly narrated by Andrew Wehrlen, whose quick action speech combined with a throwaway indolence, perfectly captured the tone of the book and the laid back attitude of Sam.

As always with Mr.Zandri's tales, this was well thought out and viscerally compelling. Edge of the seat stuff. My thanks to the rights holder of Tunnel Rats who, at my request, freely gifted me a complimentary copy, via Audiobook Boom. Fast paced and visual, this takes readers to places they really won't want to go in their sleep. If you like action and excitement, this book is probably for you.

Excellent

Sam is a Sky Marshall.has his eye on Chanty Linn, Who has been in US getting support for his terrorists organization and.Viet Nam. The man is small, slim, but an evil smile, like a cold blood murderer. The arrangements of a shared cab, the same hotel. His field asset is Agent Cindy, still beautiful The mission Sam is on turns deadly when the jungle has new trap doors, the snake pits, the foliage seems lethal. The three after him dressed as their forefathers did. Weapons are new. Careful to walk, so not to set off a mine field, he wants to get to Channy compound. Captured, will they get out, and will explaining need to be done. Once again the author has given us a detailed mission to follow,it is tense. To the end, another Sam adventure leaving us wanting more adventure.
Given audio also which added to this plot and good Narration

Viet Nam Revisited

Sam Savage is pitted against a young man who wants revenge against America and China because of the war. Savage is wise-cracking with an eye for the ladies. Complete with a double agent this story never comes up for air - it moves fast. Great fun. I was gifted this from the author.

Great Pulp Thriller!

Vincent Zandri may have created the character of Sam Savage as an Air Marshall, but this is 100% non-stop action. I loved how the author incorporated real places and events in the book Tunnel Rats. Those details really made the story that much more believable, and added to the imagery. This is one fast heart-pumping listen, that I could envision so much with. Andrew B. Wehrlen added to my enjoyment with his stellar performance. He gives the various characters distinguishable voices. I requested this review copy audiobook and have voluntarily written this review. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator. I'm curious to hear if anything more develops of Sam and Cyndi's relationship.

Fast paced

Tunnel Rats A Sam Savage Sky Marshal Thriller: Fast paced, action packed. It's got everything you want in a thriller and Vince Zandri packs a lot of it into his books.
Great narration - It is paced to the action and the narrators voice is enthusiastic and suits the quips and one liners of the book.
A great fun read, Sam Savage will become a favourite of mine.

A quick, action-packed story........

Tunnel Rats is a novella length, action packed story featuring Sam Savage, a former Army Ranger and current air marshal. He is temporarily assigned to follow and gather intel on Channy Linn, a suspected terrorist with a new and more homicidal version of the Viet Cong. Sam is joined by a covert operative named Cindy about whom he knows little and isn't certain that he can trust. Sam and Cindy quickly dive into action when they are captured by Channy, and the story takes all kinds of unexpected twist and turns before reaching a surprise conclusion. I really enjoyed the character of Sam because, although he has much training and skills, he recognizes that he doesn't have any experience with covert operations and willing defers to Cindy's superior knowledge in this area. He is all tough guy, but he is also very down to earth and realistic, and he has a bit of a sarcastic wit that kept this story from being too heavy.

Andrew B Wehrlen delivers an amazing performance. He has a deep, slightly raspy voice that was perfect for Sam's personality. His narration flowed so smoothly that I listened to this novella in one sitting without realizing so much time had passed. I would absolutely listen to another audiobook narrated by Wehrlen in the future.

I received a copy of this audiobook at my request in exchange for this honest review.
