by James Patterson & Neil McMahon, narrated by Matthew Bomer, AF, 2011, Playaway audio, 6.5hrs, rating=2.5

"Move over James Bond--you've just met your match!
Hays Baker and his wife Lizbeth possess super-human strength, exceptional intelligence, stunning looks, a sex life to die for, and two beautiful children. Of course they do--they're Elites, endowed at birth with the most advanced genetic enhancements available. Elites are the pinnacle of evolution; the triumph of man's ambitions.
The only problem in their perfect world--are the humans!
And their toys!
Now comes the most unbelievable shock of Hays Baker's life. Suddenly he's on the other side of the gun, experiencing a life he'd never dreamed possible--and fighting to save humans everywhere from extinction.
Not only that, Hays and Lizbeth just might lose their perfect family.
James Patterson's Toys is a thriller on a hyper plane--with a hero to rival both Bond and Jason Bourne." (Goodreads)

In short, I do not agree with the blurb's comparison to James Bond and Jason Bourne ... not classy enough.  This book was more of a Terminator to me.  It had Terminator's mechanics though not it's fire and heart.
