The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn

Unabridged Audio Version
Last night, I finished listening to the unabridged audio version of The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn from Audible, which I purchased for my birthday earlier this month! 

The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn is narrated by Angela Dawe and listening time for this novel is 8 hours, 34 minutes.

I thoroughly enjoyed listening to The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn and thought that Angela Dawe was an especially good narrator as she does a great job of giving each character a unique voice. I look forward to seeing which other books Angela Dawe narrates... Great narrators only enhance a book's story, making a reader's experience only that much more enjoyable.

As far as the novel goes, The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn is fast paced and very engaging read. I was captivated from the very start of this novel and couldn't wait to see how things played out. I kept wondering how things were going to all end.

I enjoyed the story and the characters for The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn very much. Each chapter, focused on different characters involved in the novel and the various locations in which the action was taking place as well. I enjoyed that the author wrote the novel from the various view points of the major characters. All in all, The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn is a wonderful book. I highly recommend reading The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn.

The following is the publisher's plot summary for The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn from Audible:
The US ambassador to China is killed in a suspicious plane crash just days after a news article links Chinese spies to US business interests. The American intelligence community is left scrambling to investigate possible connections between the crash and a series of other high-profile deaths.
On the other side of the world, ex-CIA operative Kera Mersal returns to the United States determined to clear her name after being branded a traitor for exposing illegal government surveillance. There, former colleague and fellow fugitive J. D. Jones contacts her with a new assignment: find out who is staging accidents to murder news sources. As the news site continues to publish stories about top-secret CIA programs and Chinese government corruption, Mersal reunites with old allies to uncover the truth and prove her loyalty to her country once and for all. But Mersal's investigations put her on the trail of a sinister hacker whose own motives may influence a vaster - and more deadly - geopolitical conspiracy than either of the world's two largest superpowers is prepared to handle.
I am giving The Good Traitor by Ryan Quinn a rating of 4.5 stars out of 5 stars.

Until my next post, happy reading!!


  1. Happy belated birthday! I hope you were spoiled with many other books on your special day :)

    I am going to have to give The Good Traitor a try. I need a fast paced book. After finals this past semester, my brain is fried. I tried listening to three audios to help ease me but my brain simply did not care about listening to them. Maybe with a fast paced audiobook I can get back to enjoy reading and listening to books.

    1. Thank you for the belated birthday wishes! It was a relaxing birthday this year for me.

      Enjoy The Good Traitor!!
