This was one of my "listen on the drive to work" reads. I just haven't had the time lately to do any other kind of reading! I liked it enough to move onto the next book in the series. I don't know if "listening" instead of reading the book changed the experience for me but it felt like a book that was trying to be tough and gritty but didn't quite make it there. Sure there were assassins but I guess they just didn't come across as dark enough for guys whose lives were killing people. Maybe it was just that the readers voice wasn't strong enough??
