    Story

    Mark Greaney wrote a fast paced action packed story. Court Gentry seemed to go from one impossible to escape situation to another. It was exciting to listen to how he got out of each situation. Greaney description of modern day Mexico may be very accurate from other books I have read. Mexico appears to be reaping the harvest of centuries of corruption. The Gray mans travels through Latin America, Central America and Mexico was like an exciting travel guide. Jay Snyder did a good job reading the story. This book makes an nail biting escape from today's problems, story good for a boring commute.

    Ex-CIA assassin Court Gentry thought he could find refuge living in the Amazon rain forest. But his bloody past finds him when a vengeful Russian crime lord forces him to go on the run once again. Court makes his way to one of the only men in the world he can trust - and arrives too late. His friend is dead and buried. Years before, Eddie Gamboa had saved Court's life. Now, Eddie has been murdered by the notorious Mexican drug cartel he fought to take down. And Court soon finds himself drawn into a war he never wanted.

  • "Until proven guilty"

    Overall

    This is book one in the Beaumont series. I have read some of the newer books in the series, so it was great to read the first book. It answers a number of questions about people that were briefly mention in passing in the new books such as Ann, and how Beaumont got his money. This book had more sex than the usual Jance novel I am glad she toned that down in the newer books. Liked the description of Seattle it like a mini trip to the city. Over all enjoyed the book now I will look for number two in the series.

    Story

    Over the years I have read almost all of the Griffin books. He is one of my favorite military authors. I see now that all the books are being released on audiobooks. I decided to take the opportunity to read/listen to the books I had missed reading in the past. This book was on my list. W.E.B. Griffin takes a real situation based on history and inserts his fictional characters right along side the real historical people thus making the story very real. Eric G. Dove did a great job narrating the story. It is the first time I have heard him narrate. Most of Griffins books prior to this series were based on WWII stories. This series moves into the cold war period with Che Guevara the Cuban communist activist. Lots of flying and action in the story. Some foul language but no explicit sex as per Griffins usual method of writing. If you are a fan of military novels or a history buff you will enjoy this story. Griffin also is precise in following military protocols in this story including the famous military top secret memo format. In this book he sums up the ending of the story via after action reports and memos to Felter.

    In November 1964, Cuban revolutionary Che Guevara went to the Congo with two hundred men, intent on making it his first step in taking over Africa and South America. He failed, thanks in large part to the efforts of an intrepid band of Green Berets. Licking his wounds, he retreated to Cuba to recruit more men and try the same thing in Bolivia. He failed there, too. In fact, he died there, and thus, despite his incompetence, became a glorious martyr to the cause. But who was trying to kill him, really - and who was trying to keep him alive?

    Story

    I loved this book! And no one could be more surprised by that statement than me! I'm an over-60 female listener with absolutely no background in the underworld of imaginary dragons and such; and have only fleeting technological understandings. Nevertheless, this story caught my head and heart and I enjoyed it thoroughly. The narration is among the best I've heard -- flawless!!! It is a centuries old mystery set in such contemporary times and places that you can't help but be drawn in. Great story!!

    "Just an Amazing Story of Southern Crime"

    Overall
    Performance
    Story

    This is a GREAT story. . . filled with great characters and a plot that just won't let you go. That said, I must confess that at first, I had a hard time adjusting to the slow, methodical narration. But once I accepted it, Hammer's plodding southern inflections and varied voices actually made the story. Listening felt like being there in the south, in that time. You could sense the humidity, the tension.

    Prepare yourself for some heart wrenching listening. The story is true to the racism and hatred that the south foster(ed?) for eons. And there is some, but not a lot, of graphic sexuality and sexual violence as well as brutal killing. But the good guys and really good and they prevail when all is said and done.

    The thread that captivates is that this story takes place in the little Georgia town of Delano (and where the citizens of Delano go,) and is filled with well-developed southern characters that you will come to know intimately.

    It is worthy of your time and credit! Highly recommended.

    I've said it before, so I won't belabor. . . Connelly's crime tales are superb and Dick Hill's narration only makes them better. Black Ice was really, really good! If you like detective stories, you'll like this one. I'm heading down the slippery slope of buying all of Connelly's novels! Hooked!

    I think this is Sanford's best book yet. It is definitely the best Virgil Flowers book I've read. The flow of the story is perfect. Frighteningly, it is very believable and well researched. Unfortunately, these type of issues do exist to some extent. He put together a great mix of mystery, thriller, action, suspense and even some romance. Eric Conger did his usual good job with the narration, especially during the big scene. He made it come to life and make it a real white knuckle event. I Highly recommend this book.It is one of the best credits I've used this year!

Hire Simon Vance to (flawlessly) interpret the loves, lives, and murders of Sweden’s cold and secret-filled world. A spellbinding amalgam of murder mystery, family saga, love story, and financial intrigue.
