Jeffrey Kafer is a great narrator for these stories. He is great at the dry sense of humor with his voice. I don't know if he's smiling as he says some of these lines, but it doesn't come out in his voice which is perfect. He voices all the characters with their own personality and even different accents when needed.
As I listened to this story, I got the feel of more layers than just a secret agent assassin. There is more to the system he's in. C.T. drops enough about the system and The Internal Refugee Society that we understand the basic function, but there are hints to more than the agents who are conditioned to not ask questions know about. There's more to Agent G as well.
We see the mission and system through Agent G's eyes and mind. What he hears from Marissa, his assistant, helps open our eyes with him to who he was before joining and maybe, just maybe, there is more to the Society. Agent G works through his mission to accomplish it, but also learns more about the Society from it's competitor - The Carnevale.
We get lots of names in this book, creating a large cast (even if most do die) in a system that's huge. This gives me a feel this story is one in a much bigger world of events. C.T. has many names, but he also has fun with the nicknames given, this is something I enjoy and have fun with. The many people Agent G comes across are all very special in different ways, giving us the vast variety of scifi to the story.
I get the feel of so many neat elements of movies in one place here. I can't list them all as it'll give the book away. C.T. is known for pulling the cool and neat elements from spy and action movies to bring together in his own story and adds his own flare to them. I enjoy the twists he creates with a humor to it all.
I'm starting to see C.T. has a few things are his signature in books - the girlfriends and humor and action. He's talented at mashing together many great elements and creating fun reads.
The story is light and fun with action and danger. A great balance to enjoy as you listen or read.
