Publisher's Summary

Jason King and Will Slater, the two most lethal operatives in government history, are out on their own.

They’ve been through their personal journeys into hell, but they unite in New York City as brothers in arms. So begins a vigilante crusade against the city’s morally bankrupt inhabitants. 

But their private war doesn’t last long. Sometimes you can’t escape the past, no matter how hard you try. They’re revisited by old government contacts with an agenda, and soon enough they’re fighting tooth and nail to prevent the destabilization of the entire country. Outnumbered, overwhelmed, beat down, battered, broken - it's just another day at the office.

Really enjoyable.

If you like action and can suspend disbelief a bit, this book is for you. I enjoyed it very much. Good narration, great characters. My type of book. I will get all in this series. There may be 1 or 2 people like this in the World but I doubt it so don’t expect too much reality but good non the less.

Disappointing

I bought this book due to the very good reviews and since it’s the same genre I enjoy - special agent former military special ops type characters. Greaney & Hurwitz are the leaders in this group. But this book I found far too ridiculous to be even slightly believable. The story isn’t “painted” well. Lacks good description. I couldn’t even make it to halfway before putting it down. I won’t get another by him.

Who talks like this narrator?

I truly enjoy the series and the storylines. Its a great listen to be sure with only one major issue at least for me.....and that is the narrator. Its almost like this guy took his speaking lessons straight from William Shatners early years of Star Trek. Speak 8 words, pause, continue, pause, and so forth. It really screws with the flow of the story and to the authors credit the only reason I put up with it is that the stories are really good. To be honest the narrator has a good voice but he needs to stop narrating in small chunks of text the way he does. Continuing to finish the series either way.

Four stars is not a bad rating I LIKED THE BOOK

In today’s world everyone thinks badly of less than five star rating. If that’s the case, why even have one two three or four stars?

I really liked them characters in the book and the narration was strong. Just a different story than I’m used to. Solid book
I recommend

An exciting story, but...

Mr Rogers loses one star for the unwanted & profane expletives. Mr Kenerly loses one star for his very distracting habit of pronouncing 'ing' words with an irritating hard 'g' at the end. 😕

Just not for me

This book just wasn't for me. Hopefully Audible will stop using it to base my recommendations on.

Dont, get me wrong, the author did a good job, I just wasnt into it.

Thin Gruel

This story felt like a middle school creative writing project. There was little plot, little character development, little nuance, and little incentive to willingly suspend one’s disbelief. Combined with narration that sounded like a 1970s malt liquor commercial, this book was a disappointment.

Thirty minutes too late!

Jason King and Will Slater were operatives of Black Force, a secret division of the U.S. Government. They were warriors enhanced with super-human reflexes. Their handler was presumed dead. They had been separated for some time but were now back together. Compliments of the Macao Triad, they had more money than they knew what to do with. They owned two penthouse suites on the Upper East Side. Their first endeavor was to hijack a shipment of H&K417 rifles from the Italian Mob. With no contacts and no resources, they were on their own. Slater didn’t like it but King was more resilient. They had a job to do. The destabilization of the U.S. economy is their ultimate target. Removal of the first line of defense is their priority. I am impressed with the Violetta character, she is one interesting and capable woman. The story is fairly complex and compelling. I like the two main characters, they are pretty badass.

Utter chunder

Hands down the worst book I've ever had to listen to. Bad storyline, bad performance. Just plain bad. Luckily it's free to subscribers as I'd not have been a happy bear if this had sucked up a credit.

A more vulnerable read

I liked the fact that this story showed King and Slater in more vulnerable situations and conditions. The story isn't afraid to remind us that everyone is human, everyone can be hurt or feel the effects of nature.

This story also looks more closely at their relationship. Something between brothers and an old married couple.

Loved it.

If I was told these two weeks "the best fighters on the planet" one more time, I'd have stopped right there. The premis is laughable...two blokes are superhuman..
so attuned to killing that NOTHING can stop them...and of course they are American, and guess what...the bad guys are the Chinese...and the Simple Sydicate
..and dissolution US armed forces...and right wing gangs....Stilted dialogue, predictable plot....don't bother.

Very bad and not even amusing with it

Badly plotted macho nonsense. Not worth anyone so time. Banging your head against a brick wall would be more enjoyable.

Great story

I hadn't heard of Matt Rogers before I downloaded and listened to this book but I will certainly listen to more now. Great characters and really fast paced action. I think the narrator let's it down as he doesn't sound convincing.
