Descrizione

This stunning standalone audiobook, from the New York Times bestselling author of The Tourist, follows the people on all sides of a domestic terrorist group, from the group's converts to the FBI agents investigating them.

New York Times bestselling author Olen Steinhauer's sweeping espionage audiobook traces the rise and fall of a domestic left-wing terrorist group. Told from the individual perspectives of an FBI agent, an undercover agent within the group, a convert to the terrorist organization, and a writer on the edges of the whole affair, The Middleman is another tightly wound thriller, and an intimate exploration of the people behind the politics, from a master of suspense.

    The Middle-Man is an excellent book. It felt like it was mimicking real life. From the very beginning until the end the suspense continued. The characters were all believable and the descriptions of the scenery were easy to imagine. I highly recommend The Middle-Man by Olen Steinhauer.

    I appreciated the voice acting, the fast paced story and how many characters’ lives and perspectives the plotting allows the reader to access. Most of all I’m totally blow away by how tightly woven the story is against recent events and today’s concerns.

    Takes a little time to get interesting, but overall a good book. This book is an easy read and has a fairly decent plot line.

    This was a well written and enjoyable story. A police procedural with a female protagonist set in current times includes terroristic groups and bureaucratic bumbling. It can, in short, be considered an interesting "how-to" instruction for becoming part of the FBI upper management. No one emerges as a lily white, savior, of morality, both the terrorists and the bureaucrats are less-than-pure. Commentary on the current state of the nation and world.

    This book has swirling loops of conspiracy theories. It also seems to introduce a new character on every other page. I thought it was convoluted, dull and full of people about whom I did not care. I also don't think that, given our current political debacle, this is a particularly good time to bash the credibility of the FBI. Since not all of the conspiracies are tidied up at the end of the book, I assume that a sequel is planned. I won't be reading it. I received a free copy of this book from the publisher.

    The motivation of the dissidents is not well articulated nor is the ending of the book.

    I enjoyed this thrill ride of a book to the max!This book is current, edgy, precise, scary, and told in a grabbing manner. I love the various perspectives of the speakers. They all have a story to tell, and their stories are all important. It was action-packed from the beginning and did not let up. Discoveries were made from beginning to end. Kept me riveted. I related to many of the characters in a substantial way.What shone through to me in all of it, was the fact that we are all humans. Regardless of beliefs, when push comes to shove, there are common factors.A fascinating read and one I'm sure any spy, mystery, thriller, political thriller readers will love.This book was provided to me by NetGalley and the publisher.

    The Middleman from Olen Steinhauer is a thriller that is as current as the latest asinine Presidential* tweet, except this novel is from an intelligent mind and makes sense. This is about both domestic terrorism and corrupt government. Neither side comes out clean and, just like life, neither side is perfect.One of the valuable points here is the danger of a charismatic leader, whether that person wants to do good (as in the novel) or wants to do bad (as in real life). I think I will leave the overt social and political commentary there since this novel is more than just some left or right wing critique, it is a compelling story.There are plenty of surprises and one or two things that were telegraphed. Overall both the thought-provoking aspects and the mystery aspect kept me wanting to read more. The characters are well developed and generally act as their personalities would indicate. You will find characters to dislike and to like, and maybe a little of both.One more political comment: this book is not a screed on either end of the current political spectrum. Some positives are given to both sides (as if there are only 2 sides, but anyway) and both sides also display their negatives. As long as you aren't afraid of your positions being questioned then you can enjoy the story and perhaps gain some perspective to improve your own views. If you're afraid of light being shed on your positions, on either side, you may not enjoy this as much. It won't be because of the novel, it will be because you are weak in your position, which is far too common nowadays as well.I would recommend this to any reader who can enjoy a political thriller without getting all hurt because it didn't cater to your views exclusively. If you need to only hear what is in your echo chamber, stay on social media.Reviewed from a copy made available through Goodreads First Reads.

    Having read two previous books [The Tourist and The Nearest Exit ] by Olen Steinhauer, I looked forward to reading his latest, The Middleman. I was neither disappointed nor overwhelmed. This one is a pretty good thriller in which the female protagonist, an FBI agent, can’t quite figure out what some would-be not-quite-terrorists are up to and later, why their two principal leaders are assassinated, why someone is trying to kill her, and why the FBI (her own agency) seems out to get her. To find the answer, she turns to the tried-and-true question of “qui bono?”, or in modern parlance, “follow the money.” Evalaution: This book is not especially suspenseful, and it based on a somewhat implausible premise. Nonetheless, it is sufficiently complicated and convoluted to keep your interest. Good airplane reading. (JAB)

    Competently plotted, but the writing needs more personality.
