Summary

In the new thriller featuring hostage rescue expert Jonathan Grave, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author John Gilstrap takes listeners on an action-packed thrill ride from the wilds of Montana to the streets of Mexico, as a sniper attack turns wilderness hunters into the hunted and Grave's enemies stalk him with a vengeance....

Hostage rescue expert Jonathan Grave and his fellow special-ops veteran, Boxers, are hunting in Montana when shots ring out, and they realize they've become the prey for assassins. In the crosshairs of unseen shooters, cut off from all communication, with the wind at a blood-freezing chill, the nightmare is just beginning. Because Jonathan and Boxers aren't the only ones under fire.

Back in Fisherman's Cove, Virginia, Jonathan's Security Solutions team is fighting for their lives too. A vicious onslaught is clearing the way for a much bigger game by eliminating anyone in the way. If Jonathan and Boxers can make it out of the wilderness alive, the real war will begin.

Fast Paced and Action Packed!!!!

This is a really good addition to the Jonathan Graves series. It is super fast paced. There is nonstop action right from the very beginning.
Jonathan and Boxers are out on a hunting trip when they realize that they themselves are also being hunted. It doesn’t take long before their pursuers are taken care of. They soon learn that their friends at home have also been attacked. Being the professionals that they are, the squad sent to kill them had the same fate as their friends. Now, the question is who are these men? Who sent them? And why?
This is the 14th book in the series. Although I prefer listening to a series in order for the developing and changing relationships, this series need not be listened to in the order it was written and each book can be listened to as a standalone with enough background information given in each.
Basil Sands did a great job narrating.
This book is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

Spoilers kinda

The books beginning is complete plot armor. So many reasons not to leave the sat phone and box was wearing a molle vest with his size should’ve had plenty of room. After the first squad of goons is killed and they start to go after the big boss the book hits 10 hrs and they wrap up the rest in under 10 minutes with a phone call that couldn’t been made at almost any point in the book. This book is not even about saving anybody and it’s barely %50 complete. You can skip this one and miss nothing at all. Not worth it anyways.

Also why all the repeated child murder? It was not necessary for the story. Anyone could’ve driven the car but it had to be a family and then there is like 30 minutes worth of bitching at the kid for having emotions. Go see a shrink.

Gilstrap does it again!

Audiobook Review – Lethal Game – John Gilstrap
Finished Author John Gilstrap’s “Lethal Game” while on quarantine from Covid. Lethal Game features one of my favorite lesser-known protagonists in hostage rescue expert Jonathan Grave. Gilstrap takes readers on an action-packed thrill ride from the wild, wide open spaces of Montana to the crowded streets of Mexico, as a sniper attack turns wilderness hunters into the hunted and Grave's enemies into assassins as they stalk him with a vengeance. Grave and his former special-ops partner, Boxers, are hunting in Montana when they realize they've become the prey for unannounced killers. Back in Fisherman's Cove, Virginia, Grave’s Security Solutions team is fighting for their lives as well. John Gilstrap does ‘another’ fantastic job in this the 14th installment in the Jonathan Grave series. The book works well as a standalone and is instantly engaging with super-fast paced action and an intense and suspenseful plotline. The superb banter between Grave and Boxers is back, and the character development as usual is indicative of Gilstrap’s exceptional writing. Gilstrap even develops strong and complex bad guys which really adds to the storyline. His writing always seems to help me understand what the characters are thinking, and this is an incredible writing capability. Lethal Game is engrossing, electrifying, and intriguing. It is a spectacular action thriller read and the series is sadly too underrated in the genre in my opinion. Basil Sands was superb as usual on John Gilstrap's audiobooks. He is the voice of Jonathan Grave and Boxers...

Big fan of the series but latest book has an issue

There is so much good to say about this series and I have read or listen to just about every single book. Every summer, I look forward to reading / hearing the next installment. The stories are exciting and engaging, the banter between Digger and Boxers is always fun and the action is always front and center and expertly articulated. Over the last several books he has been expanding on the character development of several of the secondary characters. This all serves to keep the books interesting and growing/improving.

Basil Sands is a great narrater and is really able to bring life to all the characters in the books, no matter male or female and no matter the accents - first rate!

Now for the issue - while his stories always have corrupt politicians, and there certainly are a number of them out there, he has always kept specific right-wing political drivel off the table. In this book, there were at least 2-3 instances of him veering off into that traffic lane making me pull back from enjoying the story and thinking to my self, "well, hold on a min!"

So I remain a fan of the series and Gilstraps's writing but was just tweaked by a few areas he was (presumably) trying to sneak in commentary that, for me, detracted from the otherwise great stories.

Falls a little short of previous books

Usually smart characters do stupid things and create annoying situations. I found I wished for repercussions for the mistakes or punishment to befall. I was routine against the good guys, not enough of the antagonists were shared to instill a dislike. It is well written; the character's behaviors are the only elements that were disappointing.

Great series

First the series is awesome. Second, narrator could use more background on the characters and how to portray them.
