Publisher's Summary

When collegiate baseball phenom Chase Fulton suffers a freak injury on the field that shatters his dreams of becoming a Major League catcher, his future looks bleak until he’s recruited into quasi-governmental covert operations, where his training as an assassin and covert intelligence operative launches him into a world fraught with danger, intrigue, and unexpected passion. 

As Chase navigates the Caribbean, he’s pursued by a beautiful Russian SVR officer who is trained and prepared to find, interrogate, and kill him if necessary. He learns exactly how deadly the realm of international espionage can be when duty and love collide.

Can’t wait for book two!

This was a tremendous start to a new series. Cap Daniels brings such realism and life to his characters, and the narration was a perfect match for how Chase sounded in my head. Really looking forward to the next installment! Highly recommended listen.

I was provided a review code by the publisher in exchange for an honest, unbiased review.

Terrible book but good narration..


DNF at 64% (page 208 of 326) (3 hours and 30 minutes left of the audio)

Okay, Chase was kind of lame from the very beginning, but I kept going, hoping the book would get better. It didn’t! He saw a sniper on a water tower, and it was a woman and he fell in love and didn’t tell anyone that he’d gotten a good look at her. Now, this guy was a newly trained assassin and thought it was a good idea to lie to his handler, hoping that someday he’d meet this chick? Of course, he did meet her, the night she broke into his yacht and nearly cut his tongue in half while questioning him. (And of course, they were kissing the next day.) Who are you kidding? Dutch, his handler got there in time and after chasing Anya off he proceeded to sew up Chase’s tongue. Really?

This book could have been much better if the author would have left the silly romance out. Don’t get me wrong I read a lot of romances but that much romance doesn’t belong in a book about assassins.
And, since his love-interest is in the next book too I won’t give that one a try, hoping it would have better than this one.

No actual sex and the F-bomb was used 9 times.

As to the narration: Kyle Tait did a great job on the voices and emotions but even he couldn’t help the poor story-line.

Just Right!

The character development is superb - no wondering who, why, or how.
The plot is believable, the narration is perfection, and the characters are enjoyable, interesting as well as their motivations being believable This is a straight-up, well-written, well performed action story. The main character has the right balance of accomplished talents and humility.
I'm ordering the next installment of the series!

A most enjoyable book.

When you read /listen to this type of book you start anticipating plot turns or character developments. Not so w/The Opening Chase. more twists and turns then a mountain road. Chase Fulton surprises everyone as he transitions from baseball player to college grad to "super spy." He further surprises the listener as he becomes an accomplished spy and ladies man, accumulating great wealth along the way. Then the plot makes several major shifts and you are hooked - and unsure where to go. I am anxiously awaiting the second book in the series...wondering what Chase Fulton will do next.
