While this book was not a bad story, I am only giving it two stars because for me the story just didn't have...'it'. I am not sure what it was, but it just was not for me. ( )

Kurt Vetter’s brother was killed and he must use the information sent to him to prevent the why from happening. He hooked up with Amanda, his brother’s former co-worker to spoil a plot concocted by a Washington intelligence rouge group. The fast pace did not allow or significant character development. This is the first book in the Reluctant Hero Series. ( )

** I received a copy of the audiobook through the member giveaways

I thought the story was pretty good. It is very fast paced and I thought that it could actually have a little more detail, but the action certainly keeps coming. Future books will be interesting to see how Vetter becomes more involved, since the "reluctant" part of the title certainly fits this book. ( )

It is a great short story full of action with a very intriguing plot. It was only a few hours long but I couldn't stop listening to it. ( )

I received this free audiobook from the author in exchange for an honest review. This is a fast paced, action packed conspiracy techno thriller involving a rogue U.S. government group who must be stopped as they deal with the Cold War on their own terms. I found this book difficult to turn off; just wanted to find out what would happen next. Kevin Pierce does an excellent job as narrator and I found him easy to listen to. The book has a cliffhanger ending and I will be reading the next book in the Reluctant Hero series to find out what happens with Kurt, Amanda, and The President. I recommend this book to anyone who enjoys an action packed, fast moving techno thriller. ( )

Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0982875819, Paperback)

Conscience can be a killer.

A plot to kill a nation, hatched by a secret cabal of ex-cold warriors intent on finishing the war that defined their existence. One man, who in a crisis of conscience, passes information about the plot to his brother, a shattered soul living on the edges of society.

When Kurt Vetter learns of his brother's murder, he has no idea how far he will travel, how much he will sacrifice, in order to uncover the truth. With the help of Amanda Carter, a shadowy figure from his brother's past, he races across the globe, staying one step ahead of a trained assassin, in a desperate bid to prevent the unthinkable from becoming reality.
