Publisher's Summary

It started as an experiment.
It ended with an invention.
He never intended to use it.
But then they betrayed him.

Imagine Vince Flynn's Term Limits meets David Baldacci's Absolute Power. 

_______________________________________ 

Presumed dead after a staged terrorist attack, FBI Agent Odysseus Carr is running for his life with the doctor who rescued him. Meanwhile, the same power players who sent Odi to his death are now manipulating an FBI profiler into blindly tracking him down. She's not just their best, she's also his sister. 

As Odi unravels a devious plot of profound political manipulation and global consequence, the hunted becomes the hunter, and the real terror begins.

Thrilling unputdownable page turner

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Yes

Any additional comments?

didn’t know anything about Tim Tigner three days ago but now, after spending almost 11 hours with Betrayal, I can’t wait to get my hands on more of his books.

Betrayal follows the story of FBI Agent Odysseus ”Odi” Carr, his twin sister FBI Negotiator Cassandra ”Cassi” Carr and some pretty powerful and ruthless figures high up in the United States Government.

After a botched mission in Iran, Odysseus finds himself the lone survivor of his FBI Special Operations team. Gravely wounded, Odi is befriended by a mysterious Medical Doctor that will help with his recovery and will also provide important information about the failed mission. It seems that the fact that Odi is alive is just pure luck.

Consulting with his new friend, Odi discovers that his boss in the US Government has sacrificed the entire FBI team just to put in motion a series of events that will change the World as we know it. Long story short because I’m trying to avoid spoilers, Odysseus returns to the United States and starts to enact revenge on those responsible for this horrific betrayal.

In the US, his sister, Cassandra, although grieving for her brother, presumed dead, is in love with the FBI Director and hopes to get married, while this man is driven by the obsession to become the next President of the United States. From this point on, Mr. Tigner is amping the action to the max and delivers an excellent thriller, with plot lines touching on Al-Qaeda, terrorism, betrayal and corruption at high level . But, I will not say anything more about the story, better for you to find out on your own.

I really cared about the Carr twins and cheered them on for the duration of the entire adventure. I liked that the story is told from multiple points of view and another thing I liked about Betrayal was the fact that the book isn’t at all predictable, keeping you on the edge of your seat even when you are tired, making you kid yourself saying breathlessly ”just one more chapter”.

If you ask me to compare Tim Tigner to some other author out there I’d say just this: I love Lee Child, but I had better entertainment listening to Betrayal then I did with the last two Reacher novels combined.

In just a few descriptive words, Betrayal is immersive, fast paced, thrilling, action packed, unputdownable, a page turner.

The audiobook is performed by Dick Hill and I have the distinct impression that he really enjoys narrating Mr. Tigner’s works. I said it countless times and here I am saying it again, Dick Hill is amazing! He reads with professionalism and passion, gives life to the entire cast, keeping them easily differentiated in the listeners mind with different accents and voices delivering an excellent overall performance. I’d recommend the audio version over the printed one because Dick makes an already excellent story even more interesting, captivating and intense.

Can't trust anybody!

"Betrayal" is the perfect name for this book--so much of it happening all around! Death in battle is one thing, death by betrayal just doesn't sit well. So Odie is out to find out who got his team killed. And Odie has more skills than most people, so you know he can do it! Lots of excitement, turn-arounds, and action. Some nasty gore but it fits in, and you know, some people need to be dead.

This is one of Dick Hill's better narrations. I don't know why his readings are so inconsistent, but here he sounds good, without the shaky, palsied, wheezing old smoker's painful breaths.

This book was good enough that I immediately bought the next book by Tigner (but it's not about the same people.) Very satisfying.

Awesomeness

I have to say, this author does a great job at keeping out the stupid. Both books kept me riveted and not once did my eyes roll into the back of my head.

Worth to read

Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

Actually, I already did even before I finished reading. She seems to enjoy it too.

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Very well written. Although I though I knew how the story was going to continue, author kept changing directions. Even though at times the plot looked a bit exaggerated, I think author kept it believable enough, while still being able to surprise reader with new lines.

Which scene was your favorite?

Description of how Creamer worked.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

I would say yes. I usually only listen to books at gym, but this book made me continue listening while driving home.

Welcome Tim Tigner

Any additional comments?

Really good story - excellent narrator. I'm so happy - I was starting to feel I'd run out of books having read every book by a large number of authors. Them along comes Tim Tigner - only two others on Audible. One which I purchased, the other is in my wish list waiting for Audible to have a 'buy 4, get $10 credit special" - it's only just over 4 hours and I want longer books if I am going to spend a credit. I hope there are more in the queue. Suspenseful, some characters I really liked. Only reason I gave the "story" a slightly lower rating is because I have trouble believing that people like the evil Stuart or weak and nakedly ambitious Wylie really get as far as these two do in Washington and get away with murder. I found the plot original and creative and as always - Dick Hill is GREAT. Welcome Tim Tigner.

didn't betray my expectations

Would you consider the audio edition of Betrayal to be better than the print version?

I would call it even but I have to admit Dick Hill is one of my favorite narrators

Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

Yes. Lots of twists with plausible turnovers.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Dick Hill definitely brings the story to life. His command of accents and voicing different genders with ease engages me more than just reading.

Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

There were more than one. Discovery of bobie trapped headsets, Cassie's and Odie's encounter in the elevator.

Any additional comments?

Waiting for the Coercion's narration

An absolute must for fans of a Lee Child!

I'll keep thjs short so you can just get to the book! Betrayal is a fantastic introduction to one of my favorite new characters: Odi Carr. Filled with some absolutely scary science, you will find the story hard to put down or even hit pause. Read by the talented Dick Hill, Betrayal is quite the thriller and fans of Lee Child or David Baldacci will love Mr. Tigner's brilliant introduction to the Carr siblings. I'm definitely hoping to read more about them in the future!

An interesting way to kill people

This was a good story from the first sentence to the last paragraph. The suspense and tension never let up and you were sure at times that the bad guys were going to win because the good guys had so many spears in their hearts. In an effort to make matters worse the good guys didn't know who the other good guys were much less who the bad guys were. Only the listener was aware of what was going on and that wasn't always the case. Even in the end, although we were all pretty sure we got all the bad guys we could n't be completely sure. There was enough for another book but the listener is satisfied with what was left.
I really like Tim Tigner's writing style and I look forward to more of his work. His work is unique and refreshing.

Dick Hill provided an excellent performance. He deviated from his usual cadence and therefore his voice was easy to listen to and did not distract from the story.

Excellent Book

If you could sum up Betrayal in three words, what would they be?

Nail biting fun

Who was your favorite character and why?

Odysseus Carr.

What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Love Dick Hills inflections and the cadence of his voice

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

The things the government does to give you the illusion of safety!

Any additional comments?

Bravo I am retired law enforcement. I understand the idea of making spies seem human and foilable, but they made some pretty bad mistakes. But it's fiction.

Keep your friends close but your enemies closer

I remember reading this book and wanted to get the audio book to. So glad I did, I enjoyed listening to it just as much, some books stick with you and for some reason this book stuck with me and I remembered everything that was going to happen, so it was great having the characters come to life. One of the reasons I enjoyed it so much is you never quite knew where the author was going to take you next, making it just perfect for an audio book listen. The story jumps from character to character teling the story from different perspectives which at the beginning was a bit confusing but as the story comes together and you learn more become fascinating. A mission goes horribly wrong and the lone survivor vowels to have his revenge but things are not what they seem. Special agent Odysseus Carr soon finds his world turned upside as a skilled puppet master is pulling the strings behind the scenes and there wasn't meant to be any survivors left alive. One of the strings he tugs is to set Odysseus twin sister against him, little does she know that it is her brother that has been labelled the terrorist. But who is the terrorist and can a ghost stop him before more people have to die. As they say keep your friends close but your enemies closer the only thing with that is you never know who to trust. I like the narrator and enjoyed everything about this book from start to finish.
