This standout title from a virtuoso talent takes readers inside a secretive op to assassinate a man in Iran responsible for rigging many of the roadside bombs used in Iraq and Afghanistan. Through the eyes of our hero, a talented surveillance operative suddenly plucked from home country duty, saddled with a partner he can't stand, and dropped into the steaming marshland outside the bad guy's house, Seymour shows us what it's actually like to be a modern spy and soldier, inching carefully through the reeds, hiding every aspect of your existence - from your smell to your shadow. And knowing that success will save thousands of lives, but that failure will result in your government's denial of your very existence.

As an audiobook, "A Deniable Death" is hampered by the characters' cultivated anonymity combined with the author's use of omniscient third-person narrative. There is little to clue the listener in that he's transitioned from the bomb-making engineer to the British agent in charge of a covert mission to track and assassinate him, for example, as both are referred to as "he." It would be interesting to see how chapters or sections are formatted in the book. I'm not sure if there would be a preferable way to narrate the book, but the reader's rather dry approach is almost too good a match for the author's understated tone. Perhaps that's the desired flavor, but it's like listening to saltine crackers, only the salt doesn't get added until about disc 8, when a rather lunkheaded character code-named Badger starts to experience a moral awakening.
