I just had the pleasure of narrating Panama Takedown, written by bestselling author Mike Pettit. It’s the first entry in his new Damian Wolf, Assassin series, and let me tell you, if the rest of the series is like this book, it’s going to be a hell of a ride.
Set in the sweatiest locales of Panama City (that’s Panama, not Florida), this tense action thriller follows Damian Wolf, highly-paid assassin for a supsersecret government agency, through his paces as he sets out to liquidate his latest target. He’s been doing this a long time, and he’s starting to show the wear. When things don’t go exactly according to script in the early stages of the job, he smells a rat. Can a double-cross be far behind?
Pettit, veteran writer of the hugely popular Jack Marsh/Key West series, keeps things moving through terse dialogue and breakneck pacing, both necessary elements in thriller writing. He allows the listener/reader to catch a breath here and there, but for the most part, you’re advised to keep your seat belt fastened.
Panama Takedown will be available very soon. I’ll let you know when it hits the stores.
