When they land in an isolated airbase in the UK, they are attacked by a hostile force who kidnaps the prisoner. Only Gentry escapes. His handlers send him after the attackers, but what can one operative do against a trained team of assassins?

I listened intently to the diminishing capability of the Gray Man and was saddened by how the character has become more lucky than fierce.
The Audible Production became a posted together mess of clips as I noticed from chapter 56 to the end. This brought me very close to calling it quits and asking for my first ever in an over 150 title library between a .ca and a .com accounts. Deteriorating character coupled with a lazy and rushed audio production should leave this only for the devout fan.

Richard Rhodes' landmark history of the atomic bomb won the Pulitzer Prize, the National Book Award and the National Book Award and the National Book Critics Circle Award. Now, in this majestic new masterpiece of history, science, and politics, he tells for the first time the secret story of how and why the hydrogen bomb was made, and traces the path by which this supreme artifact of 20th-century technology became the defining issue of the Cold War.

After completing The Making of the Atomic Bomb I searched out and bought this audiobook with a credit to carry on right away. After completing what I felt was extremely short and to the point, not at all what I had just experienced, it was noted at the end that this work was abridged. Needless to say, as one who never- EVER- buys abridged works I was not happy. I won’t return it, since I can't seem to find a full audio version. It was great to have the author's own words read by himself, lending the perfect inflections and words rolled out as they belonged. Content wise, I seem to have been forced to order a print copy, available through Amazon and delivered within two days, to put away the app for a bit and squeeze in some quiet time to evaluate the full message from the comfort of the easy chair. Feeling a bit cheated, but a lot inspired.

Here for the first time, in rich human, political, and scientific detail, is the complete story of how the bomb was developed, from the turn-of-the-century discovery of the vast energy locked inside the atom to the dropping of the first bombs on Japan. Few great discoveries have evolved so swiftly - or have been so misunderstood. From the theoretical discussions of nuclear energy to the bright glare of Trinity, there was a span of hardly more than 25 years.

When I started this a month ago at an hour a day I hoped for a journey of education. I missed the boat on that. This is the compilation of too many lives to imagine. Details, Facts, Context. The 'all in' experience of GREATNESS within the context of not only humanity, but also universal everything from origin to extinction . I couldn't miss the next part and I cant wait to explore history with this genius next and again. Great Author, Great Narration. BUY NOW. Never regret.

Ludlum brought an art to this craft of perfectly describing everything and still keeping the story moving forward at a believable and enveloping pace. Classic story of good challenged again with a real hero.

With modest support available but endless challenges and ethical choices to make The Gray Man squeaks through another modern, relevant , and totally plausible international escapade.
