Publisher's Summary

Created more than 40 years ago by secret executive order, Red Cell Seven is a highly classified intelligence agency tasked with protecting America from the most catastrophic of terrorist attacks. But in the aftermath of a string of deadly terrorist attacks across the nation, Red Cell Seven finds itself drawn into a conspiracy that threatens to tear the organization apart. The president himself calls on Troy Jensen, a high-level clandestine operative and the son of Red Cell Seven’s current leader, to spearhead the hunt for the terrorists - even though Troy is still reeling from the murder of his brother. The deeper Troy digs, the clearer it becomes that the “Holiday Mall Attacks” are just the opening salvo in fiendishly complex plot. Powerful forces are working to undermine Red Cell Seven, and Troy will have to risk everything to uncover the truth and protect what’s left of his family. The sequel from the best-selling author of Arctic Fire, Red Cell Seven delivers edge-of-your-seat action.

Red Cell Seven Triligy

The Red Cell Seven is a covert group created in the 1970s by US President Richard Nixon in an effort to prevent attacks against this country. The black-ops group reports only to the President. No oversight. No restraints. Free from any prosecution. Unlimited budget. No questions asked. Basically, government-approved vigilante authority, include murdering at will as required, at their discretion - even innocents deemed a threat.

Book 1 starts with the formation of Red Cell Seven. It's called 'seven' to throw the Russians off - President Nixon thinks Russians spend all their time looking for the first six covert operations. That's pretty much the only reference to Russia - the series is mostly about preventing domestic and Islamic terrorism - in addition to targeting the current administration with multiple assassinations because the current President wants to shut down Red Cell Seven.

Liked. No explicit sex, no objectionable language, clean reads. Okay espionage stories.

Not so hot. The books are very similar, not that there is anything wrong with any of them - none stands out. It's just a very long espionage story. Depressing in that it's possible. Read from book 1, Arctic Fire. Book 2, Red Cell Seven, Book 3 Kodiak Sky.

You'll be left torn as to if the behavior portrayed in Red Cell Seven is a good thing - or not. It's sorta scary to think our government is capable of this stuff - but, it is. Exhibit the current President in 2019, who believes he can "do anything he wants", and America does nothing to stop him.

To much misderection

The author has throwen so many plot twists and misdirection into Red Cell that the story soon becomes boring and tedious. It is impossible to like, hate or feel much beyond apathy for any of the characters. With about 5 hours to go in the audio I found I didn’t care what happened to any of the characters or even how the story turned out. I gave Red Cell only 2 stars mostly because there are far better choices in this genre. Books, like Red Cell, that explore the questions of how far would a person or groop go to preserve there values and idea of right and wrong are numerous. In Red Cell I saw little difference between the tererists, the government agency and the president in there whillingness to kill ruthlessly, betray even the most sacred trust and basically do whatever it takes to achieve there goals. Might have been exactly what the author was trying to accomplish but I doubt it given what I could follow as the plot line.
I like most of what Stephen Frey has written and realized upon checking that I had not bought or listened to the first book in this trilogy. If I had, perhaps I would feel different about this book but I doubt it. If you, like me enjoy Stephen Frey’s other books and happened to see an unread title; save

Loved this book!

This book had so many twists and turns. Most books of this genre are so predictable.

How did this tripe get published?

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

Worst writing I've encountered in years. Don't waste any time listening to this. I've read more interesting copy on IRS instruction forms.

If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Red Cell Seven?

All.

Very poor

I got half way through it and decided that was enough. Same old story, only slightly modified. If this is your first Stephen Frey book it'll be ok, if you have listened to any other then save your money and re-listen to your previous ones.

Should have been published on April 1st

This book is a joke. Thank God for the return plan. Preposterous events and characters. Terrible performance. I liked Stephen Frey's prior work but this is just bad...

Not the genre, but the author

You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

None whatsoever

Any additional comments?

Do not buy

Just average. Nothing special.

The first book was better. this felt like the author was trying to force the story. The nartator needs to learn how to pronounce "DIDN'T".
