Robert Ludlum’s The Treadstone Transgression

Penguin Random House Audio. (Treadstone, Bk. 3). Apr. 2022. 9:26 hrs. ISBN 9780593554258. $20. THRILLER
Adam Hayes lives a retired life on a New Mexico ranch with his wife and four-year-old son. His job as a CIA black operative seems like a distant memory until his boss shows up. Hayes receives orders to rescue two CIA agents and their confidential informant trapped in Haiti. They have information that will expose an international conspiracy. It is supposed to be a quick 48-hour assignment—and his son’s birthday is soon—but a traitor inside the CIA coupled with a host of international thugs sent to kill Hayes throws a wrench or two into the works. The seemingly indestructible Hayes overcomes all those obstacles, but his family is abducted. This is a typical Ludlum story with plenty of high-tech weapons, explosions and bloodshed. Performed by Ron Butler, the narration creates intensity and suspense that builds to a final crescendo.
VERDICT Readers of Robert Ludlum genre novels will especially enjoy Hood’s (The Treadstone Resurrection) thriller.
