  • "I've discovered a new author!"

    Performance
    Story

    I love it when I discover a new favorite author. Kevin Guilfoile is writing intriguing, intellectual thrillers that ask, "What if?" "Cast of Shadows" seems to be set in the not-to-distant future ??? or else in a slightly altered present ??? where reproductive human cloning is just coming into common use. It asks the question: "What if reproductive cloning were (mis-) used to catch a killer?" Guilfoile deeply and thoughtfully explores the potential ramifications and consequences of such technology. The earlier reviewer who objected to the "Christian theme" of this novel must not have listened to it for very long; because "Cast of Shadows" definitely does not have a Christian theme at all: only a sub-plot following the radical Christian right's violent reaction to the use of human cloning technology. In fact, the thread of this sub-plot, woven intermittently into the main story, stays entirely in the background until the very end, when it finally emerges to reveal a deliciously surprising plot twist. Any intelligent, thinking person will love this book. The narrator, Scott Brick, is a good actor with an unpleasant voice; but the story will soon have you overlooking this one small drawback. I am now listening to Mr. Guilfoile's next novel, "The Thousand," which is providing me with at least as much enjoyment as "Cast of Shadows" did. I highly recommend this author.

    A bereaved doctor undertakes a diabolical experiment in a shattering philosophical thriller that anticipates the moral, social, and metaphysical dilemmas science is poised to confront. Davis Moore is a fertility doctor in Chicago specializing in reproductive cloning, when his 17-year-old daughter is brutally raped and murdered. The case is investigated but never solved. Months later, Moore retrieves her belongings from the police, and finds among them a vial containing the killer's DNA.

    Story

    With "Political Suicide," Palmer returns to his likable protagonist, Lou Welcome, from his prior novel, "Oath of Office." Only, you don't necessarily have to listen to "Oath of Office" first, as "Political Suicide" tells a new story. Palmer does, sometimes, fetch afar for his plots; and I am hoping that he has done so, again, with this one. I don't want to believe that a plot like this one could actually be hatched in the upper echelons of power. Without giving away any surprises -- in deference to those who don't like "spoilers" -- this story deals with a despicable way of leveling the playing field in the war on terror. Medicine -- Palmer's usual theme -- plays only a subsidiary part here, demonstrating Palmer's gradual move toward the political-thriller genre. Some of the characterizations in "Political Suicide" do stretch credibility a bit -- like lawyer Sarah Cooper's sudden transformation from nasty to nice -- but the cute plot twist at the end of the story ameliorated that weakness to a certain extent for me. As with "Oath of Office," narrator Robert Petkoff does a good job reading us "Political Suicide," clearly distinguishing all the characters from one another with different voices and accents. If you like thrillers, and don't mind suspending disbelief just a bit, I recommend "Political Suicide" to you.

    Lou Welcome, from Palmer's bestselling Oath of Office, is back in this heart stopping medical thriller. A desperate phone call embroils Lou in scandal and murder involving Dr. Gary McHugh, known around the Capital as the "society doc." Lou has been supervising McHugh, formerly a black-out drinker, through his work with the Physician Wellness Office. McHugh has been very cavalier about his recovery, barely attending AA and refusing a sponsor. But Lou sees progress, and the two men are becoming friends.

  • "Don't genetically modify our food!"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    "Oath of Office" deals with an important issue that threatens to detrimentally affect our health. I thank Michael Palmer for bringing it to light in this novel. Big-Pharma and Big-Agriculture are genetically modifying our food without our knowledge. Here in California, we recently had an election proposition that would have required food manufacturers to label their genetically-modified products, so that we consumers could, at least, make a choice. Of course, the proposition was defeated, thanks to the vast sum of money that the corporations spent to fight this sensible, if modest, proposal. Most people do not know that -- unless they are organically-grown -- 𝙖𝙡𝙡 of the corn and soy beans now produced in the U.S. have been genetically modified. By corollary, that means that all non-organically grown livestock have been fed those genetically-modified foodstuffs. Many of our other food crops have had foreign genes inserted into their D.N.A., in order to boost production and provide pest resistance. In "Oath of Office," Palmer provides the example of a corn crop that has had the gene from irradiated termites inserted into its D.N.A. Far-fetched? Not really. Unless you are only buying organic, you have probably already been eating tomatoes carrying pig genes. Nobody knows yet exactly what this genetic tampering with our food may do to us in the long run, because the experimental testing is being done on us right now. Only time will tell how this reckless manipulation is going to affect us. In "Oath of Office," Palmer postulates that the altered corn crop begins affecting people's brains, altering their decision-making faculty. The resulting plot provides an exciting thriller, with a message: Don't let greed overwhelm good sense. Robert Petkoff, the narrator of this audiobook, has a good voice and good acting chops. I recommend "Oath of Office" to fans of medical thrillers. As other reviewers have mentioned, this novel may not top Palmer's oeuvre; but it is definitely not a snore, either.

Red Emma's greatest hits:
  • Nineteen Eighty Three: Red Riding Quartet

    "The long awaited for finish!"

    Overall

    I got through all four of books within 2 weeks. (Which is saying a lot for a working mother!) After having the first 3 under my belt I could not wait to see how everything wove together. I loved how David Peace went back and forth between the time periods (especially back to "1974") and I was able to piece more layers into those previous stories and characters. You really realize at the end just how many different characters and years this story spanned, which was really unique to my literary experience. It is not a pretty story, but the characters will stay with me for a long time and I am sure I will revisit Yorkshire in the years from 1974-1983 in my mind many times from now on.

  • Nineteen Seventy Four: Red Riding Quartet

    "I loved it"

    Overall

    I loved the character of Eddie Dunford. I found the first book the least "poetic" of the four. Saul Reichlin is a billiant narrator!

  • Nineteen Eighty: Red Riding Quartet

    "Poor Peter Hunter"

    Overall

    This part of the series has the most sympathetic charcter in Peter Hunter; a good but flawed man trying to do the right thing in a wrong world. The ending of this book shocked me the most out of all four. Again, Saul Reichlin is brilliant.

  • Nineteen Seventy Seven: Red Riding Quartet

    "A rough trip so bring a cushion!"

    Overall

    Wow. I have read all of the Marquis de Sade's books so I thought nothing could really shock me but David Peace's "1977" managed to do just that. His portrayal of the absolute worst in people is epic and really hard to digest. I physically felt ill a couple of times. I wasn't sure that I was going to be able to make it through the whole recording but am I glad I did. The story and the characters really drew me in and I was actually sad when the recording ended. Saul Reichlin is an absolutley perfect narrator. I am already starting on "1980".

  • "Deeply riveting!"

    1 of 1 helpful votes
    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    H.S. Clark’s book, ‘Secret Thoughts’ feels like a cross between Michael Crichton’s ‘The Andromeda Strain’ and William Gibson’s ‘Spook Country’—not entirely in plot, but in the sheer way the book propels you into the thick of white-knuckle suspense, yet, surprisingly, it doesn’t sacrifice depth and emotional gravitas.


    What did you like best about this story?

    ‘Secret Thoughts’ is an absolute delight to read—the language crackles with the texture of its setting, with the vibrancy of its painstakingly developed characters, wrapped up in a plot that chugs along at full speed right at the get-go. The book starts out with a seemingly accidental series of deaths—people dying from cold medicine—only it turns out those were not accidents. Worse, the fingers of blame point to Dr. Paul Powers—the only person who’s putting everything on the line just to find the real culprit. And that’s only the beginning, as the thick blanket of intrigue close in on Powers, you will not be able to put the book down.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    What’s more, author Clark knows his science and technology—he has an uncanny way of dipping his arm in hard science only to heighten the choke-hold on the reader’s imagination, and emerge from it with a flourish. Let me just suffice it to say that I love ‘Secret Thoughts’ to shreds—this is a rare literary treat that you don’t find everyday on Kindle or anywhere else. Those who love the genre will totally dig this. A solid five-star rating for this immensely entertaining book!

    Abigail was a bright, popular high school student with great dreams for her future. One day, mental illness struck and those dreams came crashing down. Or did they? In this fascinating psychological novel, we learn about schizophrenia from the perspective of eighteen year old Abby. She unexpectedly finds herself afflicted with a condition that has severe social stigma and for which there is no cure. We accompany her as she gradually loses mental clarity and the ability to function in society; and we follow her on the journey as she attempts to return to a normal life.
