Publisher's Summary

In the town of Gainesville, Cooper Fox has a special place in people’s hearts. Since the car accident that wiped his memories, Cooper has been...a little foggy. Cooper doesn’t know how to do much, but one thing he instinctively seems to know about is strength training, and with his help, Gainesville High’s football team has just won the Mid-States final. With Cooper the hero of the hour, the whole town is getting ready to celebrate in style. 

When three strangers crash the party and decide to pick on the harmless-looking guy carrying a cooler full of sodas, they trigger something inside Cooper. Afterwards, the folks in Gainesville can never look at him in quite the same way. Is he really just a regular guy who suffered a brain injury in a car crash, or is he someone else? Or something else?  

As Cooper tries to come to terms with baffling new memories, he’s about to be plunged into a terrifying world of secret experiments and covert assassins that will test his new-found abilities to the limit.

Awful

I’m not one to give up on a book but I was so close with this. Was this written for young adults? Teens? I have never rolled my eyes so many times at the obvious storyline. At having to endure the slow pace of the lead character discovering himself and then continue to be narrated to as if we were at his level. And the narrator’s voices were awful! Really? That was supposed to be an English accent?! I thought it was a very poor attempt at Australian. One of the worst books I’ve endured on Audible.

A rollicking good listen

Loved it. This was a perfect book to listen to during this very boring time. It's fast paced, but not rushed, it has satisfying action scenes that don't go on and on for too long. It's not a challenging listen, it's compelling and I could not put it down. Its a great stand alone, but I'm hoping for a sequel because I want more of Cooper Fox.

The narrator does a really good job and it well chosen for this book.

Sleeper Agent

Tedious.
Shallow cardboard characters make it hard to relate to any or care what happens to them.
Good concept, if written by a semi- decent author would be ok but lack of suspense due to poor character development.
Txs for the freebie

Not your usual story

Gripping story with truly excellent character development. Very different indeed to other stories with a broadly similar narrative. Looking forward to, I hope, further volumes in this series. Great narrator as well, which to me makes so much difference.

A great story, very well narrated

I really enjoyed this story. Due in no small part to the skill of the narrator. He did an excellent job with the different characters. Super impressive.
