Admiral Jake Grafton takes his wife, Callie, along when the U.S. government sends him to Hong Kong to find out how deeply the American consul-general is embedded in political money raising scandal. And why not? Jake and Callie met and fell in love in Hong Kong during the Vietnam War, and the consul-general is a friend from those days.

It’s a shame to have to spoil a great series and a good character in Jake Grafton by using this narrator. The monotone voice gives no separation between characters and I just can’t listen to it any more, unfortunately I wouldn’t read the next book after missing this one, onto another series.

Robert McCall is a former covert operations officer for the CIA who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter (often literally), a protector, and an investigator. People in need find him through a newspaper ad: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer.” Aided by a group of sometimes-mysterious contacts (some of whom date back to his spying days), McCall traverses the streets of New York City, visiting justice upon those who prey upon the weak.

Ambushed and drugged, Evan Smoak wakes up in a locked room with no idea where he is or who has captured him. As he tries to piece together what's happened, he receives a desperate call for help. With time running out, he will need to out-manoeuvre a powerful opponent to have any chance of escape. He's got to save himself to protect those whose lives depend on him...or die trying.

I love the character which is what kept me interested. I think the situation in this book was very overdone it just kept on going and going and going and going, could have been limited to most a chapter or two. Anyway finished well and I'll read the next one and hope it's a little bit more exciting.

Do you need my help? It was always the first question he asked. They called him when they had nowhere else to turn. Raised and trained as part of a top-secret programme, he was sent to the worst places in the world to do things his government denied any knowledge of. Then he broke with the programme and disappeared. But now someone's on his tail. Someone who knows he was once known simply as Orphan X.

Ex-CIA master assassin Court Gentry has always prided himself on his ability to disappear at will, to fly below the radar and exist in the shadows - to survive as the near-mythical Gray Man. But when he takes revenge upon a former employer who betrayed him, he exposes himself to something he’s never had to face before. A killer who is just like him. Code-named Dead Eye, Russell Whitlock is a graduate of the same ultra-secret Autonomous Asset Program that trained and once controlled Gentry.
