A great series continues!

A great story with a not so great narrator. Eduardo Ballerini was fantastic in the 1st few books and I don’t know why they changed. I couldn’t even listen to the 1st Callahan reading because of the female voices. They are too breathy or airy and no one talks like that. I was finally able to go back and continue the series after Ballerini was out of my head. Mr Callahan, Please work on your female voices. It would be much easier to listen to if you used a male voice instead of that awful airy and unrealistic voice you use for females.

Great series but the narrator needs to improve

This is a great series… I’ve missed much sleep staying up to finish book after book.

My complaint is the narrators inability to voice females. He must have in his misogynistic head that tough female CIA and MOUSSAD agents sound better breathy with slight accents that make them sound dumb. Maria is American. She does not have an accent. It’s pathetic that someone can’t edit this narrator to a better resolution.

Character growth

Great story. I’ve followed the entire Zero series and this is one of the best. Characters are dynamic and grow with the series. Thrilling piece of “Audible” literature.

I love it but...

I have listened to the entire series up to this point and have the remaining books in my library. So, I am a fan.
However, I have a few criticisms of some illiteracies perpetrated by the author.
1. The word is "magazines" or "mags" instead of "clips." A magazine goes into a gun. A clip is a device that holds ammo to be loaded into a magazine. Mars uses clips in place of mags consistently--leaving the impression that he doesn't know firearms terminology other than by reading other uninformed authors.
2. The word is "appreciatively" rather than "appreciably." Appreciably never means, "admiringly" or "gratefully." It means "noticeably." Mars never uses the word correctly. He consistently uses "Appreciably" instead of "Appreciatively." Either that or the narrator can't read the word correctly.
3. Speaking of "clips." It seems that the author is unaware that fully automatic weapons have a fire selector for 3 round bursts. For some reason, the agents on Zero's team always seem to "empty the clip" and throw the gun away because they didn't bring spare "clips" [sic]. Now what? I guess we have to resort to the knife now.
4. The girls: Do they ever think of letting someone know where they are going? Nope! They just fly impulsively into action without any backup. Then they get into a jam that requires a miracle to escape from. About like their father in that respect. Agent Zero and his daughters are the dumbest smart people in action thriller fiction when it comes to having a failsafe. Only the villains get to have a failsafe or a tricky plan full of misdirection in these books. The Lawson trio just run in and take it on the chin. You would think that, especially the girls, would not act so impulsively as if they are invulnerable after having to be bailed out and rescued from bad actors so many times.
5. Oh, and it might have been wise for Sarah to have known that Misha has mad skills and is more suited to the role of protector than any of the other family members. The pattern here is that the Lawson family members (Maria included) just don't have the foresight to communicate important details.
6. Finally, Zero is supposed to be a highly trained professional. However, he lets his emotions distract him from the mission whenever something pops up that threatens a family member or offends his moral sensibilities.

Aside from that, I really like the series. I can suspend disbelief and am not too critical of implausible plot devices. However, the illiteracies and idiocies listed above are jarring and take me out of the story. I don't review every book individually, so this review points out some recurring flaws common to all of the books.

Now we're up to side stories of 5 women! Love it!

It's the 3 M's - Maria, Mia and Misha - but don't forget Sarah and Penny!
I don't think I've ever run into an author who comes up with so many off-the-wall tales and scenarios, and yet still makes it a fun and interesting read. It's like, "Forget Zero - what's going on with Mia and Sarah!" (Almost). But then don't forget Maria and Misha!

I decided to look up Jack Mars for more info. Just try and find it.
No don't try it. Jack runs silent, runs deep - except when his books hit the street!

Great Narrator

I’ve listened to hundreds of audiobooks, almost all of the Agent Zero series. Mr. Callahan is an incredible narrator, especially changing between male and female voices, as good as any narrator I’ve ever listened to.
