Agent G is an assissign for the International Refugee Society (there are comments about it have the same initials as the IRS, and because of this, it is always referred to as the full name in the book. There is also a death and taxes joke, because it is needed). He doesn’t have a name and they wiped his memories. After ten years of service, assuming that he survives the full ten years, he will be able to get him memories back and go back to the family that he dreams about. He kinda like a cyborg. He has brain implant that can download information, much faster than learning the old fashion way, among other things.

So, G is sent on a mission to infiltrate the Carnevale, a rival to the International Refugee Society. He has to have surgery to change his looks, so that he can be undercover for Agent F, who G killed when G figured out that F had turned traitor. G has a hard time figuring out who to trust. There is his wife (at least in name, but not really in heart), S. He also has a girlfriend, who happens to be his assistant, Marissa. Oh, and then there is the adult daughter (and assissign in her own right), of Carnevale leader, Lucita.

“The Letters”, as they are called, all are programmed to suppress their emotions. This is to make it easier for them to do their jobs. G has issues because he has formed an attachment to S and Marissa, though in different ways. He also has been searching for his elusive past, though that is forbidden. He even gets attached to Lucita. He has a really hard time knowing who to trust, as they all come under suspect at one point or another. Everyone seems to turn on everyone else.

James Bond type stories really aren’t my thing. But, when the author offered me a review copy of this book, I decided to give it a shot. I’m a huge fan of the narrator and I really like the author’s supervillain series. I never would’ve picked this up on my own. I did enjoy it, but not as much as the supervillain books (I think it more because that is more my genre, than this book is any less than the others). I will continue the series, especially want to learn where G goes from here. He finds out quite a few things at the end of this book (I think “cliffhanger” is too strong of a word, but maybe leaning towards that direction).

“Well, I’ll find out soon enough”, I muttered. “Dead men tell no tales, but the about-to-die are remarkably chatty.”

Agent G: Infiltrator Audiobook Narration

Jeffrey Kafer has really cemented himself as one of my favorite narrators. He continues to nail every piece that I listen to. He continues to do a great job with this book. What can I say, that I haven’t already said about him. He always picks the best voices for each character. His women’s voices are great. I think he does dry tones really well, which is great for an assissign who suppresses emotion. If you’ve never listened to a book with Jeffrey Kafer, you are really missing out.

I’m Melanie and I live in Ohio. I have two horses and a dog. I’m an animal lover, avid book reader and audiobook listener. I like to live vicariously through fictional characters. I enjoy reading and listening to mostly fictional books in the paranormal genre, including Urban Fantasy, Paranormal Romance and Horror. My favorite paranormal creatures are shifters, doesn’t matter the flavor.

  1. I am glad that when you stepped out of your comfort zone and that it worked for you. I haven’t tried this narrators, I think I need to!

  2. Yeah…actually, this is neat. I totally go in for the super spy/assassin stuff so I’m curious. Glad you gave it a try and shared about it, Melanie. 🙂

  3. I struggle a bit with this genre for some reason so it would be a bit out of my comfort zone as well but I’m so glad that you tried this (and the narrator!) and liked it!

  4. I think I would like this one. It sounds like a really interesting set up. I haven’t listened to this narrator yet but will have to look for him. Glad you enjoyed this one.

  5. Even if it’s not usually something for you it doesn’t look bad

  6. Oh wow… I have that other series on my Audible wish list. I’ll have to take a look at this. It seems very complicated, but if you were able to understand and enjoy it, I may need to check it out.

    Thanks!
