    Moses McGuire has good reason to be concerned about his beautiful 23-year-old daughter, Brittany. She moves quickly from one boyfriend to the next, and always seems to prefer a new and mysterious stranger to a man she knows something about. But her most recent ex, Rick Jessup, isn’t willing to let her go, culminating in a terrible night when Brittany is raped. Within 24 hours, Rick Jessup is dead, Moses McGuire is the prime suspect in the investigation, and Dismas Hardy has been hired to defend his brother-in-law.

    Story

    I have read or listened to every one of the Dismas Hardy novels, along with most of John Lescroarts other books. In the past several novels there has been an absence of real substance. This book is written with the same zeal and character driven plot that his older books were and in that it excels. Its full of interesting little ethical questions and conundrums, along with a great story. You wont be disappointed with this book. Just like all of the other Hardy novels this one will twist and turn and throw you off your seat every time you think you've got something figured out.

    I am really happy audible released this book and hope they release all the sequels I think there are 6. This book is an amazing piece of literature. It brings the revolutionary war to life from an unorthodox point of view. A wealth of great historical events and characters is included and this is really a phenomenal book by a well seasoned author.

    This book is a bit different from previous MHC novels but different isn't necessarily bad. I felt like this was an interesting twist on classic who dunnits. The book itself reminded me a lot of the Agatha Christie novel Taken at the Flood. Fans of either writer should give this book a shot. I liked it a lot and found myself trying to find a similar book to read after I had finished this one.

    Han Solo should be basking in his moment of glory. After all, the cocky smuggler and captain of the Millennium Falcon just played a key role in the daring raid that destroyed the Death Star and landed the first serious blow to the Empire in its war against the Rebel Alliance. But after losing the reward his heroics earned him, Han's got nothing to celebrate. Especially since he's deep in debt to the ruthless crime lord Jabba the Hutt. There's a bounty on Han's head - and if he can't cough up the credits, he'll surely pay with his hide. The only thing that can save him is a king's ransom. Or maybe a gangster's fortune?

    Story

    This is a fun easy listen from the creator of the Thrawn Trilogy. The Narrator does a phenomenal job jumping between voices. I thought the plot got a bit outlandish at times but this is Star Wars after all so you have to be expecting things to be a bit out there. Overall I would recommend this to anyone who is a fan of the movies.

    Herman Wouk's sweeping epic of World War II stands as the crowning achievement of one of America's most celebrated storytellers. Like no other books about the war, Wouk's spellbinding narrative captures the tide of global events - and all the drama, romance, heroism, and tragedy of World War II - as it immerses us in the lives of a single American family drawn into the very center of the war's maelstrom.

    I actually just finished reading this novel when I saw that it was available on audible and I just had to listen to it. This is a grand story and it will fill your head with so much early World War II history that you will find yourself in awe of the authors ability to weave a complex story amongst all of the real life history.

    If your familiar with the authors previous works this book reminded me of his novel the spire in story structure. I did feel however that it was a bit anticlimactic. I enjoyed the mystery element of this story but I felt like overall it was missing something. I don't know if I had it to do over again if I would spend my credit on this but I did enjoy it and it made my drive to orlando a lot easier.

    In her long career as America's most beloved suspense writer, Mary Higgins Clark's The Lost Years is her most astonishing and dramatic work to date. At its center is a discovery that, if authenticated, may be the most revered document in human history - the holiest of the holy - and certainly the most coveted and valuable object in the world.

    Story

    I typically care for very few female authors, not because I'm sexist but because I don't like the graphic way they describe sex scenes in their novels. With that being said Mrs Clark is one of my favorite female writers since I have yet to encounter that problem in her writing. I typically eagerly await her novels but this one along with her last couple have not been up to par. I like the plot but for me this was just not her typical mystery and it fell short. It simply wasnt as entertaining or edge of your seat as some of her previous novels I really enjoyed Where Are You Now? and I Heard That Song Before.

    I have no complaints about the narration or the listenability of the story.

    Story

    I read reviews of this book and thought it would be worth a credit. I tend to listen to books in the car to make my commute more tolerable, in this case it made it more stressful. This book constantly jumps from the present to the past. It happens so often and with such poor description you often find yourself trying to figure out when what your currently listening to takes place in the novel. There is no warning and no description to help you clarify its poorly put together. The plot is decent but I would not recommend this as a listen unless you pick it up for a good sale price since its definitely not worth a credit.
