    Aaron Littmann, the chairman of one of the country's most prestigious law firms, has just been contacted by a high-profile defense attorney whose client is Nikolai Garkov, a Russian businessman arraigned on terrorism charges for pulling the financial strings behind recent treasonous acts. The attorney informs Aaron that Garkov is looking to switch representation and will pay $100,000 just to take the meeting.

    What would have made Losing Faith better?

    Reading the book.


    Any additional comments?

    My anticipation for Mitzner release of this novel was cut short in the first chapter leaving me shocked that the producers could not see right from the beginning that this narrator should have been replaced (fired)! The author I am sure will loose $$$$ from returned audible buy backs and negative reviews of narrator preventing the purchase of the audio!

    When Caleb Wardell, the infamous "Chicago Sniper", escapes from death row two weeks before his execution, the FBI calls on the services of Carter Blake, a man with certain specialized talents whose skills lie in finding those who don't want to be found - a man to whom Wardell is no stranger. Along with Elaine Banner, an ambitious special agent juggling life as a single mother with her increasingly high-flying career, Blake must track Wardell down as he cuts a swathe across America, apparently killing at random.

    Did a nice job of character separation.

    If a man won't fight for what is rightly his, then he ain't much account. With this challenge from his dying father, young Shell Tucker rode out after three men who had stolen the 20,000 dollars his father was carrying. Two of the men he hunted, Doc Sites and Kid Reese, were his friends. Dreaming of adventure, Tucker had wanted to join their gang. But now, with his father gone and the people back home desperately in need of the proceeds from the cattle drive, Shell was determined to uphold his father's reputation and recover their money.

    Great character who fought hard to keep the promise his father made


    What other book might you compare Tucker to and why?

    Louis L'Amour books are all good westerns.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Tuckers settling of the score with the thief who stole the money (when you listen, you will understand).


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Tucker was a strong-willed, Who wanted to do what was right to those who trust in his father with the cattle. I enjoyed Tuckers difficult adventures that drove him to make right that was wronged.

    New York Times best-selling author Linwood Barclay delivers an electrifying novel of suspense in which a family’s troubled past is about to return in more ways than one. And this time, they may not be able to escape.… Seven years ago, Terry Archer and his family, who first appeared in No Time for Goodbye, experienced a horrific ordeal that nearly cost them their lives. Today, the echoes of that fateful night are still audible.
