THE GOOD SPY The Life and Death of Robert Ames

by | Read by Rene Ruiz

Biography & Memoir • 14.75 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2014

The April 18, 1983, bombing of the U.S. Embassy in Beirut, Lebanon, marked the beginning of a war that continues today. Narrator Rene Ruiz employs a straightforward approach to this audiobook, using his deep, spare voice to let the words tell the story. Robert Ames, one of our most effective spies in the Middle East, was killed in the bombing. Ruiz doesn't enhance his reading with characters, and he doesn't possess a wide vocal range. Over the course of this long work, his style is a drawback because his voice doesn't rise to the level of intrigue and excitement that the book demands.
