The sequel to Agent G picks up a year after the first novel with our antihero cybernetic assassin now working for the United States government. So much better than being a private contractor, right? Wrong. Hunting down his former associates only makes things worse and he soon finds himself discovering even more dirt about his convoluted past. What is an amnesiac cyborg to do?

I started this book almost two years after finishing the first book,  Infiltrator. I was debating if I needed to re-listen to the first Agent G book to get me back in the world. I ended up just starting Saboteur without the re-listen and it didn’t take me long to get back into the Agent G series.

Agent G is a cyborg assassin. He is working for the US government now, instead of International Refugee Society. Originally, he was a part of a group of assassins known as letters. They all just have a single letter as their name and they are all cyborgs with many enhancements. In this, Agent G is working to either convert the other letters to his side or kill the ones that won’t give up their loyalties to the International Refugee Society. I don’t want to go into much more detail, because it could spoil, not only this book, but also Infiltrator.

If you’ve never read Phipps, his stories tend to be a lot of fun, full of humor and pop culture references. This one is no different. Phipps is one of my go-to authors when I need something to lighten my mood (which is a big need during 2020). While the stories can get a bit dark at times (I mean, this book is about an assassin), the stories will always get a laugh out of me. I also love the action he brings to his stories. While I wouldn’t always call Phipps characters “likeable”, I do really enjoy my time with them. G is an anti-hero full of snark. If you haven’t ever read a C.T. Phipps book, then you’re missing out.

Narration

Another plus to C.T. Phipps most stories are performed by the wonderful Jeffrey Kafer. Kafer is one of the great ones. I really love his ability to make the snark so much more powerful than when I read it on a page. He is the perfect fit for a Phipps style story. He can do a wide range of male and female voices and is able to handle any scene that is put in front of him. I’ve never been disappointed by a Kafer read book.

    I remember (I think) your previous review – either way, this series sounds really good. I’ve not read the author before. And I know I do like the narrator! Thanks Melanie.

    Thank you for this review. Oddly, I feel the romance between G and Marissa is my favorite part. Just a wee bit tragic.
