The murder business has a way of pulling you back in....
Sean Addison is tired of killing in the name of queen and country. The ex-SAS agent has vowed to never take another life, opting instead to see the world from his motorcycle. But when members of a notorious Columbian cartel try to steal his bike, Sean realizes it's impossible to keep his killer instincts at bay....
Now with a vengeful cartel and a South American mercenary on his heels, Sean can't help but be swept up in a global power play. It turns out that the UK is willing to do anything to get at the mineral-rich deposits beneath the cartel's cocaine empire, and Sean's ex-partner has been hand-picked to carry out the mission....
With the help of a CIA deserter, Sean's only way to get out of this mess alive is by putting murder back on the menu....
Devil's Ante is a high-octane thriller set on the international stage. If you like high-stakes action, complex characters, and global power struggles, then you'll love Steve Abbott's gripping tale.

Machinations and Intrigue
This is the second book by Steve Abbott that I have listened to. I found the story to be full of machinations, adventure, intrigue, and double cross. Action and thriller books appeal to me.
I wasn't certain if I loved the sound effects in this book (phone ringing, jungle sounds, etc) but they did add to the vivid imagery the author painted. This book is a standalone listen and has some great twists that I did not see coming. I will definitely listen to more books by this author and narrator.

The book got a bit confusing for me in the beginning, it jumps from character to character telling their stories separate. The story itself is good it just took me a bit to get it sorted out. The narrator uses sound effects throughout the book and i am still not really sure how i feel about it. At times I felt it made my confusion about the characters and where in the story we were worse, and other times it was fun and amusing. I think with how it jumped around it would make more sense reading it or watching it on the big screen. The overall plot of the book was nice and i like how it played out in the end. I also like the voice of the narrator he was pleasant to listen to.
