Brian Andrews, Jeffrey Wilson – American Operator


An explosive, high-stakes thriller of espionage and counterterrorism by the Wall Street Journal bestselling authors of Tier One.

A shocking attack in Ankara leaves the US Ambassador to Turkey dead and his chief of staff, Amanda Allen, in the hands of brutal terrorists. But Allen is no ordinary diplomat. Shes undercover CIA. The DNI and the President turn to Ember, Americas premier black-ops task force, and its deadliest weapon, former Tier One Navy SEAL John Dempsey, for help. To find Allen, Ember gets embedded in the most dangerous battlefield on Earth: Syria. But when all communications are disabled by an attack in Turkey, Dempsey finds himself with no backup – a lone shadow warrior racing against time to rescue Allen from her captors before she reaches her breaking point.

What Dempsey doesnt realize is that Allen is just a pawn in a much larger game. A new player has already been unleashed: a legendary mercenary who matches the American Operator in skill, tactical prowess, and a killer instinct for survival. Now there is far more at stake than a kidnapped CIA agent. Dempsey and his team better get this one right, because the balance of power for the entire Middle East hangs in the balance. And the new threat is far more dangerous than any Dempsey has encountered in his decades waging war against terrorism. Game on.

There is only one problem with the very few books that land into my “Fricken Awesome” file, they all end, leaving me wanting more right fricken now!, & I have to wait for the Fricken Authors to continue or conclude their Fricken awesome story sometime when they Fricken feel like it! And that’s not Fricken awesome, it’s just Fricken frustrating, but in a good Fricken way…
However, all the “Fricken Awesome” file landing books also share much in common:
Incredible stories, brilliantly written, believable action sequences that leave one with only an acceptable amount of eye rolls, (no Audible groans allowed) with correctly built & placed tension & humor (appropriately placed to relieve the humor & tension!)
But the peastro resistaunts, (damn, Google spell checked 5he heck outta that & still made a mess outta that French quote!) is the marriage of the right narrator to the Authors written word!
As we’ve all have experienced, the wrong or just plain bad narrator/narration quickly destroy all the Authors hard work while making us feel like someone stole our lunch money.
This reaction is often accompanied by the hearer experiencing spontaneous blood flow from one or possibly both ear holes & instant vulgarity involuntarily, yet freely, falling outta that hole in your face people often refer to as a mouth!
Ah, but a great narrator married to a “Fricken Awesome” book makes us drool @ the thought of them just reading the phone book! (common folks, you know you’ve read that pearl of wisdom quote in a reviews)
Yup, Fricken Awesome books deserve a Fricken Awesome Narrator, it’s magical, it’s meaningful, &, its better than bad sex!
So, in conclusion, this read is all of the above & less! (less the bad book/bad narrator part) & all of the good stuff!
So, as previously mentioned, this book is Fricken Awesome, its narrated by one of the best narrators on the Fricken planet who absolutely nails the read leaving me with strangest feelings of disappointed pleasure,. wanting more!
I sincerely hope you enjoy this read as much as I did…
It’s Awesome,l!
