Publisher's Summary

Get the first three books in The Eliminator Series, including: 

The Fallen: Detective Brett Jacobs is a good cop. But he's soon going to have his limits tested. After he finishes an undercover assignment that leads to the arrest of a major crime boss, he’ll find out just how dirty the bad guys play. Jacobs realizes that in order to beat an organization like this, he has to fight fire with fire. Will he throw his badge away to become a one-man wrecking crew? Or will he try to work within the confines of the law? One thing’s for certain, the men he’s going up against have severely underestimated the lengths that he’ll go to. And he’ll stop at nothing in order to extract his revenge.

The Payback: Rich Mallette is in prison, but he’s still calling the shots. Brett Jacobs may have taken out some of his men, but he’s not ready to throw in the towel just yet. He’s still got a few things up his sleeve for the former detective, one of which is another heinous act aimed to destroy what’s left of Jacobs’ soul.While Jacobs battles more of Mallette’s Maulers, he learns the identity of the second man who was with Frazier when his family was killed. It will culminate in Jacobs and Mallette finally meeting face to face for the first time since Mallette ordered the hit on Jacobs’ family.

The Reprisal: Frustrated that his organization is crumbling while he’s in prison, Mallette starts getting desperate. He orders the kidnapping of the kids of Jacobs’ brother. Fearful that the kids might end up like the rest of his family, Jacobs frantically searches the city to find them before they end up in the cemetery. With time growing short, and Jacobs knowing that his enemy is willing to do the unthinkable, Jacobs enlists the help of unlikely allies in order to find them before it’s too late. Will Jacobs find them before Mallette’s men do the horrific act? Or will Jacobs get there too late and cause his pain and suffering to go to even lower proportions?

Hard to listen to!

Storyline was good, narrator of book 1 & 2 was difficult to listen to. He pitched up at the end of each sentence.

Revenge as a motivation

You could skip the first 4 chapters. His wife and children are killed, he is out for revenge. Liked Ryan's other series better.

Ehhhhhh

Not a huge fan of the narrator!!! The high pitch is not for me especially when it is random . When listening to audiobooks narration is a huge deal for me. Not a fan but stuck it out for the storyline

Read this if you want to punish yourself.

This story is not at all believable. The protagonist bonds with a career criminal and a close bond is made. Right. Add to this some really bad narration and it is torture. Both narrators end each sentence like it is a question, raising the pitch instead of lowering it. I wish I had the time and money back.

Childish and inept.

If you enjoy one-dimensional characters and stories that don't develop at all, this is the author for you. I had forgotten enough of another series from this author that I got sucked into another special offer...

While I started out thinking I had bought the same series again, it turned out worse. The characters have different names and marginally different stories, but it is similar enough to be equally painful to finish.

Didn't quite get there.

This series was a
bit predictable and disappointing as it didn't quite hit the mark. The obvious nuances in conversation were over explained which was annoying and you didn't feel emotionally connected with the main character over the super charged main point of the entire series. The tragedy wasn't addressed with impact or feeling so you weren't there with the main character through his journey because you didn't feel his pain.
