Publisher's Summary

An Amazon Charts, Washington Post, and Wall Street Journal bestselling series.

In this pulse-racing thriller by the New York Times bestselling author of The Last Agent, an American sleeper cell in Russia goes silent - and it’s one man’s duty to find them.

After a harrowing escape from Russian agents on his last mission, Charles Jenkins thinks he’s finally done with the spy game. But then the final two of the Seven Sisters - American assets who have been deep undercover in Russia for decades - cut off all communication with their handlers. Are they in hiding after detecting surveillance? Or have they turned and become double agents? It’s Jenkins’s duty to find out, but he’s been added to a Russian kill list. It will require all of Jenkins’s knowledge of spycraft - and an array of disguises - to return to the country undetected.

But plans go awry his first night in Moscow when Jenkins gets involved in an altercation that ends in the death of the son of one of Russia’s most powerful organized crime leaders. Pursued by mafia henchmen, Russian agents, and a particularly dogged Moscow police detective, Jenkins is determined to track down the final two Sisters and get them to America - or die trying. As various forces close in, Jenkins fears this time he might’ve pushed his luck too far.

Critic Reviews

“For an audiobook set primarily in Moscow, having a narrator such as Edoardo Ballerini, who can handily discharge Russian phrases and provide a convincing local accent, is essential. In this third volume in the Charles Jenkins series, Ballerini sturdily voices the intrepid spy, who returns to Russia to locate two missing double agents despite his being on a kill list…. Ballerini is equally adept at bringing to life the pugnacious men hunting Jenkins and the two spy "sisters" who are his objectives. The result is a pulse-pounding listen.”AudioFile Magazine

“Dugoni’s electrifying third espionage thriller featuring CIA agent Charles Jenkins (after 2020’s The Last Agent) opens with Jenkins hanging from a hook in a meat market in Irkutsk, Russia…Many riveting, hairbreadth escapes follow as he remains intent on accomplishing his mission.”Publishers Weekly (starred review) 

“Dugoni, who’s far too canny to set up all these chases and just wait to see who wins, keeps multiplying the competing loyalties and moral gray zones they reveal till your head spins.”Kirkus Reviews

First-Rate Espionage

There’s little more to say other than Dugoni is among the best of the best in when it comes to writing first-rate espionage thrillers. Between Dugoni’s outstanding story and Ballerini’s perfect narration The Silent Sisters is a five-star audiobook. It’s worthy of the highest recommendation.

Listen to it at 0.9 speed

Ballerini is always great, but I found listening to this at normal speed seemed like he was rushing a bit. Taking it back to 0.9 made it sound just right to me. As for the story, I enjoyed it and there were some edge of the seat moments. I rate it a little lower than the first two, perhaps because by nature it is treading the same ground, but still a solid third installment.

Horrible Russian

Impossible to listen as Russian is so bad that it doesn’t even makes sense. Some crude caricature that hurts my ears
I would suggest simple research and practice

3 parts

A great three book series, enjoyed it very much. A good reader also, to me that’s as important as the story.

This book sucks you in and holds you captive

The David Sloan series is a incredible journey.
The story line keeps you captivated, and gives you so much detail. You feel like your there in the moment.
I will listen to anything read by Edoardo Bellerini.

Series finale

What a great listen! with this being the series end of the stories of the sisters I was worried it would be too formulaic. it wasn't. It was truly an entangled story that leads to a surprising climax. Dugoni and Ballerini do not disappoint on this one.

Five star narrator and writer

The third book in the series and Edoardo Ballerini continued to wow me with his flawless performance. Wonderful multi-dimensional characters that were portrayed artfully by the narrator. Robert Dugoni managed to pack even more into this book than the previous two in the series and this one topped it off perfectly for me. A fabulous end of series. Dugoni is my new favourite spy writer and Edoardo Ballerini definitely my favourite narrator!
