Description

For more than a decade, Ryan Kealey has been a key player in the war on terror. First, as a captain in the U.S. Army's third Special Forces Group, then as a contract operative with the CIA. His actions have saved thousands of lives, including that of the U.S. president. Now, once again, Kealey receives the call of duty - only this time, the odds for success are slim to none.

Tensions between Pakistan and India are at an all-time high. To complicate matters, 12 American climbers have disappeared in the snow-capped peaks of Pakistan's Hindu Kush range. The president is demanding answers, but neither government is supplying them.

As the conflict escalates, Brynn Fitzgerald departs Washington D.C. on her first official trip as acting secretary of state. Her goal is to serve as an intermediary between the leaders of both nations as well as to ensure all efforts are being made in the search for the missing American climbers. But when Fitzgerald's motorcade is ambushed on the outskirts of Islamabad, her back-up team arrives to discover a disastrous scene: dozens are dead, including seven diplomatic security agents, and the secretary of state has vanished without a trace.

In the wake of the unprecedented attack, Kealey's operation goes into high gear. Once again, he is joined by Naomi Kharmai, the British-born analyst who has taken on a daring new role with the Agency. But Kharmai is becoming as unpredictable as the man they're going after, and as they work their way toward the target, it becomes clear to Kealey that anyone is fair game - and no one can be trusted.

MaaKKEEE ITTT STTTOOOOOOP

sometimes you try to listen to a book, and it's soooo bad that you keep telling yourself you must go write a review to save others the torture. the narrator, Mr. J. Charles, was bad enough - worst narrator ever for a terrorist thriller!!! - but a thriller that is non-stop background narration/explanation?!? very poor use of dialogue and other techniques to develop the story. it drones on and on and on. I usually consume a quality thriller in 3 days or less, but this one bored me to sleep - figuratively and literally - so many times that I had to go back and re-listen to parts over and over. a huge waste of a potential

Best to skip this one

This book is a bad combination of the wrong narrator, armature writing, and not even good characters. The result is a book you struggle to stay with and one you want to turn off. The narration is awful. This is the first book I have listened to that J. Charles was the narrator. He was totally wrong for this work. He can’t do accents, can’t do women and he sounds too old to be a vibrant young Ryan Kealy. The book itself contains too much ‘lecture’ background that isn't creatively written, the dialogue is unsophisticated (hard to believe the President and senior officials speak so simply). And for the US’s top operative, the President’s go to guy, well he sure behaves like an inexperienced operative. I have listened to others in the series and this clearly is one to skip.

Terrible narration

In print version the book would be compelling---however, the new narrator is so poorly suited that I had to struggle to finish the book!

The Invisible

A good read, not as riviting as Britton's first two thrillers. The characters aren't as strong and the storyline is more predictibile. The book is still well worth reading.

Worst narrator I've ever heard

This was a good book completely destroyed by the horrific narration. I've listened to 200 or so audiobooks and have never experienced such terrible accents and inappropriate inflection.

Great book, terrible narrator

Book is good but narrators inability to use more than one voice is a little annoying.

Not Sure I Like the Author's Portrayal of Women

Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

It was ok, not my best listen, not the worst.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

It was ok, a bit slow at times, too much explanation of what people were wearing when it had no real impact on the story and just seemed to fill space with some details that just weren't worth knowing.

What didn’t you like about J. Charles’s performance?

I didn't like his performance - Christopher Lane does a much better job. I found the J. Charles didn't hold my attention as well, I had to rewind and listen to several parts as my mind wandered away from his narration.

Do you think The Invisible needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

Sure, I do like the main character for the most part. I enjoy getting to know them and watch them mature and change.

Any additional comments?

I feel this author does a good job of plot writing, but I take issue with how he portrays women in his books, we aren't all nuts. I feel that he makes the women seem trite and in this one a bit crazy and too emotional at times. I would like to see him portray a strong and confident woman in a role with the main character.
