Jake Boxer, investigative journalist and host of the conspiratorial news show Bullseye, is in serious trouble. Not only is his soundman murdered by Russian intelligence agents while reporting on a secretive New World Order, but his network cancels his show, leaving Jake humiliated and spiraling into a deep dark depression. Years later, a condemned murderer, who claims he was abandoned by the CIA, and who starred in an early episode of Bullseye, is finally executed for killing two supposed Soviet spies back in the 1970’s. Jake Boxer, still trying to piece his life back together, is on his honeymoon in a posh ski resort in the Alaskan mountains when he gets word of the inmate’s execution . . . and the old killer’s final words: “The good spy dies twice.” Those five words, seemingly meant for Jake, draw the ex-reporter from his forced retirement and into a complex and deadly global conspiracy involving his newlywed wife, the secretive New World Order, and the hotel’s hundred or so “guests.” Everyone is a suspect. Described as James Bond in a Stephen King novel, THE GOOD SPY DIES TWICE is the explosive first book in the Bullseye Series. Part spy thriller, part whodunit, this fast-paced novel introduces an exciting new hero, the intrepid, conspiratorial journalist, Jake Boxer.

The good spy is a fantastic read.  With a thrilling Plot and Fantastic characters it was hard to put down.   It is very well written and kept a good pace throughout.  

There were some great characters but ones that stood out was Jake Boxer.  Without giving too much away I was very invested in his story and how he was going to solve his problem. 
The audiobook was narrated by he author Mark Hosack.  I thought he did a fantastic job.  There was a great flow throughout the book.  A good character distinction through most of it.  

Overall it translated quite well into a audiobook and had a great sound quality.  While I have only listened to the audiobook,  nothing has seemed to be lost in translation and was very enjoyable.  

In the end it was a excellent read.  It was a fantastic start to the series and I cannot wait to find out what happens next in this series. I ended up giving this book a 4.5/5.
