Publisher's Summary

The second book in the Chris Ryan Extreme series. Former SAS hero John Bald is a man at war with himself and fighting a losing battle with the bottle. But then he is reluctantly thrust back into battle....

In the race to develop ever more powerful weapons, technology has become the new frontline in global terrorism. And when one of America's most cutting-edge defence contractors suspects a sleeper cell operating in its midst, the Firm reaches out to its most cold-blooded son. Bald's mission: kill the sleeper before they can smuggle top-secret weaponry into the hands of the West's deadliest enemies. But the mission goes sideways, and Bald is the fall guy. Now he must pursue the sleeper from the ghettos of Florida to the war-torn streets of Tripoli, in a relentless hunt for the technology and the truth. Shadowed every step of the way by a ruthless CIA hit man, Bald soon finds that the lines between friend and enemy are blurred, and he'll have to call on all his warrior instincts to stay alive...

The Chris Ryan Extreme books take you even further into the heart of the mission with even more extreme action, more extreme language, and more extreme pace. Like Call of Duty or Medal of Honor, you'll feel part of the team.

Stupid

This is just about the most stupid thing I have ever listened to. Beggars belief just how incredulous this is, from pointless sexual violence (which is never explained), to ridiculous turns of events. Even for an "action" book, this is plain silly. The sound effects are a joke too.

Not the normal Chris Ryan

I know this is an "extreme" title but I personally think it is a fail compared to his other titles.

Characters lack compassion, sounds effects are a lame touch & scenes in the story jumped all over the place.

I reluctantly write this as I normally enjoy Mr Ryan's other books and was excited when I saw another Chris Ryan title (that was Unabridged) became available. But unfortunately this was a fail for me.

Awful soud effects

This is a typical fast paced Chris Ryan adventure story about a thoroughly nasty character carrying out a highly unlikely series of 'missions' while in a physical state that would put even the toughest and fittest of soldiers into hospital for a month. It is entertaining and well read but completely ruined by the addition of a series of annoying and unnecessary sound effects which class 3C at the local infant school could have done better.

un necessarily crude and violent

I have given this a low rating because I had to abandon it. It was my husband who wanted to download it,so I suppose I should that it should be him reviewing it...yeah like that is going to happen.

This review is aimed at any wife who thinks they'll give it a go.

I don't mind Andy McNab who is of the same genre, and is also very violent and crude, but has a reasonable story line. But Chris Ryan is so unnecessarily crude and sexually violent towards any woman that he writes about that I just got fed up with it. The way Chris Ryan writes I think he must absolutely dispise women. The swearing I agree is part and parcel of this sort of book but this is truely excessive to the point of putting you off the listen, and loosing the point of the story, which was thin to say the least.

The narration is soooo aggressive it had me flinching, it that helped to make the whole thing a real turn off, in every sense.

Sorry Chris Ryan I won't use my credits on you again..... but my husband probably will.

Very full on

Lots of action, but I found this just too violent with foul language. I've read Chris Ryan's books before, but this one is probably the last for me.

Disappointing

I would like to finish the story but it was unnecessarily full of swear words and it put me completely off.

I can't finish it

What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

This book series is getting worse.

Would you ever listen to anything by Chris Ryan again?

No chance

Who might you have cast as narrator instead of Josh Cohen?

No problem with Josh just the story.

What character would you cut from Night Strike?

The SAS soldiers!
