Publisher's Summary

A reluctant CIA asset with a tortured past...thrust into the line of fire against his will.
A simple undercover operation gone terribly wrong plunges Tom Dugan back into an existence he’d fought to escape.

When the CIA needed a fall guy, Dugan was the one it betrayed. Forsaken by those he’d trusted and with nowhere to turn, he’s made it his mission to stop the miscreants who ruined his life before they can destroy anyone else’s. 

From human-trafficking rings and remorseless hit men to byzantine plots to alter the world order, Dugan must outwit those chartered with terminating him while battling overwhelming odds.

Consumed with clearing his name for a crime he didn’t commit, can he do so before his enemies paint the streets with his blood? 

Three outstanding novels of intrigue and suspense from master storyteller R. E. McDermott featuring hours of fast-paced action!

Terrible Narrator, Lazy story

The pacing of the narrator was terrible.
The bad guys are cliche.
The story is lazy and at times silly.
There is an over use of sexual violence in this story. Every time the bad guys are in the spot light the author writes about sexual threats or displays how evil they are. Ugh lazy book.

Edit. Tried again. And I was right the first time. I’m putting this book down. I don’t care about any of the characters.

Oil tankers, pirates, bioweapons, sex slaves

Todd Haberkorn does a wonderful job with all the voices and accents, (American, British, Irish, Russian, German, Somali, etc) very believable. He does mispronounce a few words ("stuart" for "steward"), but you know what, I'm giving him a pass on that. Very well done.

What's nice about Dugan is that he isn't a superman. He makes mistakes, gets there too late, gets beat up and captured, he isn't all that good with guns. But he is strong, relentless, loyal, and quick thinking. He is helped by having contacts in the CIA, MI6, and wealthy corporate land. And then he meets Borgdonov and things get even better! Lots of sleazy bad guy to take out, intrigue, conspiracy, kidnapping, torture, bombing, and good old steadfast boots on the ground. There's also the probability of more sequels!

Russians are the really bad guys here, but also the best to have on your six.

I wasn't more

McDermott is an excellent story teller and to anyone who's read his other works shouldn't find it surprising that this one involves ships and boats and ordinary people thrust into extraordinary events.

I liked the narration and accents and voices used to differentiate the different characters. while it's not a deal breaker, it is annoying sometimes when all the characters are voiced the same way

all 3 great stories

Sometimes the box sets aren't worth it. This is not one of those times. If you're looking for some good action stories, these are great.

Terrorism, Piracy and Sex Trafficking

I started listening to R.E. McDermott with his post-apocalyptic series, the "Complete Disruption Series" narrated by Kevin Pierce, rightfully known as the voice of apocalyptic fiction. I'd never heard an apocalyptic storyline from a merchant Marine's viewpoint, so it was fresh, exciting and very informative. I decided to continue with the Tom Dugan Omnibus.

Todd Haberkorn's narration of these exciting, action-filled stories definitely did not disappoint!! He handled accents from America, Britain, Japan, Russian and Somalia with ease. Great Job!!

Starting with "Deadly Straits" we meet Tom Dugan, a wealthy American ex-pat shipping magnate with CIA connections and his beleaguered, equally wealthy British best friend Alex Kairouz. Alex's young daughter Cassie is being used to force Kairouz into letting his shipping business be used as a front for terrorism. Dugan's determination to help his friend brings him into a relationship with MI5's Anna Walsh. The second in the series is "Deadly Coast" involving Somali piracy and chemical warfare. The finale is "Deadly Crossing" about sex trafficking, Russian mobsters and family-style relationship with former Spetznaz soldiers Borgdanov and Denosovitch.

In each story, Dugan's extensive knowledge and experience in shipping, heart to help and acquisition of friends willing to work together as a team is the framework. Dugan's seemingly blind trust in law enforcement and willingness to let Anna run things in spite of clear Corruption within her colleagues is by turns endearing and extremely frustrating. By the end of the second story it's clear that Dugan should have engaged in some kind of arms training, but he didn't. Nor has he stepped up to the plate in his relationship with Anna, as someone who knows he's always willing to get personally involved should have done. Thankfully Borgdanov calls him on it! I'd like to see the story branch off with Borgdanov and Denosovitch as lead characters while still calling on Dugan to help them. Nigel, Cassie and Karina could also be further developed in any further branching of the story. Overall, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
