    Description

    As a freelance assassin, Deckard is no stranger to the shadow world of covert operations, but when he is summoned to Bohemian Grove and hired to train and lead a battalion of Kazakh mercenaries, he soon discovers his employer's real agenda: a doomsday plot decades in the making.

    Now, free humanity's only chance for survival rests with Deckard's renegade private military company. From Afghanistan to Burma and beyond, the clock is ticking down to global extinction.

    Great military thriller marred by terrible perform

    What made the experience of listening to Reflexive Fire the most enjoyable?

    Mr. Murphy shows extreme attention to detail when it comes to military equipment use and description and military tactics.

    What didn’t you like about Don Hoeksema’s performance?

    The performer doesn't use punctuation, mispronounces common words and misreads ( I had the kindle version to compare it to). Overall, terrible.

    Any additional comments?

    It would be great if the audio book could be performed by George Guidall or Scott Brick and re-released.

    Great action, bad narration

    I purchased this book due to its recommendations for being a good military action thriller. My first experience was bad because I could not get over the narrator, I then returned the book for a refund on my credit. After thinking on it for a bit and enjoying the story I had heard so far I decided to purchase the book again and tough it out.

    I am glad I listened to the whole book because it was a action packed mercenary thriller that seemed to be well researched even though it read like a Michael Bay movie. I would recommended the story for those wanting decent gritty action.

    The narrator though is pretty bad. I am not certain if English is his first language, but he constantly mis pronounces common words throughout the book. It took me away from the story at times. He also sounds like a sports announcer and does not pace well or pause for effect. Overall it was not a deal breaker, but I wish they used someone different.

    If you can get past the narrator, I think you will enjoy this book.

    Couldn't make it past the narrator

    I can't review the book itself, since I was only 10 minutes in when I gave up. As such, this review covers only the narrator's performance and by proxy, the quality of the audiobook.

    I don't know when or why I bought this, but I'm guessing a friend recommended it to me and had read it in book form. Other reviews nailed it - the narrator sounds like he's completely unaware of the content, describing grisly murders with an upbeat, gleeful tone. It reminds me of the stiff, patronizing tone used by the stereotypical adult that doesn't 'get' how to read to kids.

    A neutral text-to-speech computer voice would be much preferred to this. "Alexa, please give Don the night off and take over reading my book."

    Buy the ebook or paperback

    The story was good but I can't stand the narrator. Too many words mispronounced. I found myself paying more attention to how the words were said and less to the story after awhile.

    Returning this and getting a paperback version.

    Would you try another book from Jack Murphy and/or Don Hoeksema?

    I have heard this author is amazing and fabulous reviews on the story so I gave the story a 5. I listened to 10 minutes of this and the narration is terrible. It sounds "announcery." Those of you who also do voice over work will understand. A happy, announcer voice isn't the voice of a sniper who is doing his job.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Reflexive Fire?

    Again, I've heard so many good things about the book that I'm going to buy it on my reader or in paperback. The narrator killed this one for me.

    What didn’t you like about Don Hoeksema’s performance?

    He sounded like an announcer not a narrator. He sounds like he should be on the "typical" news cast in a small town.

    Unexpected, not your usual plot.

    What made the experience of listening to Reflexive Fire the most enjoyable?

    Did not expect such an interesting storyline, it kept me on the edge of my seat. Very eye opening. The narrator was awesome, he did an interesting job in bringing the characters to life, without overdoing it.. The book was not hard to stay in tuned with, a pleasant voice, easy on the ears.

    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Deckard, he turns the tables and leads his private army against the men against those who have it coming to them. I was swept away by the action on the ship, where he has been exposed and all hell breaks loose, and then in the end how the government, sweeps mostly everything under the rug, with ridiculous explanations, so true to real life in so many ways.

    Which scene was your favorite?

    The scene where Cabal is wanting to end life as we all know it, the progressive utopia, is talking in a cult setting. The scene is similar to a Satan Cult, except it is worse, as you find out later.

    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes, it really makes you wonder who you can trust. The book was given a good name, because it really will leave you reflexive as to any of this is possible.

    Any additional comments?

    I don't know if this should be considered courage , but Jack Murphy isn't afraid to let important characters get snuffed in all the spray of shrapnel and deluge of full-auto fire. The body count is high. What an exciting adventure!

    Great action & story.

    Narrator often mispronounced military terms, but does an overall decent job. Admittedly, I did lose track of some of the characters, but that may have been due to my own memory and attention span....

    5 start worthy but PLEASE find a new narrator.

    This is a great story and writing by Jack. I'll be the first to admit I don't usually write reviews. However, I can't stand for the injustice I feel about the narrator. He needs to learn how to pronounce words correctly and read jokes in text as they are supposed to sound. Seriously ruined the experience.

    Great Story - terrible narration.

    It's a crying shame the narration is downright unlistenable (seems like a made up word to me) considering the story itself is a great military thriller.

    I had gotten the audiobook to listen to while driving and failed to make it through the prologue due to the narrator. I then bought the book and read it basically in a night, then read the rest of the series.

    so, save your ears and just buy the book.

    Good listen!

    I enjoyed the story, however I found the narration to be slightly distracting. I believe it was a combination of technical thoroughness of the writing and strict pronunciations of the written content. Additionally the narrative was slightly monotone for the first half of the book. Again this might be due to the technical writing aspects, but near the end it seemed the story, writing and narration began to flow.
    Overall I enjoyed the story, looking forward to the other books!
