It was much more of a performance than an audio book and that made it a bit more fun. Although I had to chuckle whenever a gun was in the scene because the slide sound effect was used every time someone was threatened or coming into possession of a gun - even if the same gun had a round chambered several times before actually firing. I imagined a path of unspent rounds as the shooter moved through the scene.
I don't usually read/listen to political thrillers so the story was something different. I did mostly enjoy it but I don't know if I'd pick up a second if this is a series. Unless it was a couple of dollars like this one was.
