Publisher's Summary

Some skills you never lose. Killing is one of them.

Matthew Riker keeps to himself, doesn't cause trouble, and never talks about his past. But after a chance encounter with a woman and a small child on the run, Riker will have to make a choice: use his hard-won skills to protect two innocent victims, or stay in the safety of his quiet life.

What follows is an adrenaline-soaked thrill ride that will take Riker on a cross-country chase, through the seedy underbelly of a New York criminal empire, and into the darkest places of the human heart.

Fans of John Wick, Jack Reacher, and Jason Bourne...get ready to meet Matthew Riker.

Includes a bonus novella from the Matthew Riker series, No Loose Ends.

A Reluctant Hero...

Although hailed as being on par with Jack Reacher and Jason Bourne the protagonist (Matthew Ryker) in this new series has more in common with Jack Winchester. This book is fast and fun and full of action. There are places in the story that require a suspension of disbelief. The outstanding narration by Jay Snyder completes the book making it a great rather than just a good listen. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED. If you found this review helpful please indicate so. Thank You.

Great start to a new series!

THE IMPORT has already been reviewed by Audible listener Shelley so read her review and give it a helpful vote. I do want to echo a comment made by Shelley in her review. Matthew Riker is more similar to Jack Winchester than Jack Reacher. The 12 novel Jack Winchester series by Jon Mills deserves a lot more attention than it has received. I recommend it!

Jack Winchester meets Macguyver!

I got a kick out of his using of non-weapons as weapons. His evaluation of situations, how he sets the scenes and beats the bad guys with pots, pans, WD 40, canned goods and fire extinguishers. I don't really care if it's realistic, I like my heroes as super human crusaders. Like Jack Winchester, the story is "simple" and fun, and it stays with the main character the majority of the time and doesn't jump around to the other characters story lines. It's not as complex as some of the others in the genre, but sometimes complex isn't what I'm looking for. This is good entertainment. I wish they talked more about his past. It's so mysterious that I actually went back to make sure I didn't somehow miss a previous book that explained it all.

Exciting book and wonderful narration..

Started a little slow but sure picked up. Riker went from not wanting to kill anyone to killing everyone. The bad guys all got exactly what they deserved, and then some more. Because he was doing his best to save a 3 year old girl who was about to be sold. He didn't know why or care why he just knew he had to save her****** No romance and the F-bomb was used 19 times****** As for the narration: Jay Snyder is an awesome narrator! He did the entire series of The Gray Man and I loved every book******

AMAZING STORY AND NARRATION!

This was sooo good. Every bit of this story was good. I am a fan Matthew Riker! This book is action packed. Riker is trying to save a 3 year old girl. OH MY does he get the bad guys! If you like Court Gentry from The Gray Man, Dewey Andreas, Jack Winchester, Jonathan Quinn, James Reece, and Jack Winchester you will love this book! I am looking forward to the next book in this series and I hope that Jay Snyder narrates it. The narration is amazing. I am a big fan of Jay Snyder. He does such a good job on all the voices individually, has a nice reading voice and reads with emotion. So good.
