    When eight-year-old Timothy Decker finds his parents brutally murdered, it's clear the Deckers weren't the intended victims: Timothy's own room---ransacked, all traces of his existence expertly obliterated---is the shocking evidence. Timothy's nanny, Mona, is certain about only one thing. Timmy needs to disappear, fast. Only Jane Whitefield, a Native American "guide" who specializes in making victims vanish, can lead him to safety.

    For Hannah Shapiro, a beautiful young American student, this particular nightmare began eight years ago in Los Angeles, when Jack Morgan, owner of Private--the world's most exclusive detective agency--saved her from a horrific death. She has fled her country, but can't flee her past. The terror has followed her to London, and now it is down to former Royal Military Police Sergeant Dan Carter, head of Private London, to save her all over again.

    Where does Hope to Die rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Just when I was about to give up on James Patterson he comes up with a winning thriller - Alex Cross once again is up against the wall and comes through


    What about Michael Boatman and Scott Sower ’s performance did you like?

    Great performance!!!!


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would have loved to listen to it in one sitting but I think I had to break it up in 4 sittings.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Private?

    I liked that Jack Morgan was not a perfect individual and had to deal with scars from his past


    Have you listened to any of Peter Hermann’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

    Would you listen to Gray Mountain again? Why?

    I would listen to Gray Mountain again, I like the way John Grisham informs about the plight of the people of Appalachia and how they are being abused by the coal companies


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Was always wondering when the nest shoes was going to drop


    Which character – as performed by Catherine Taber – was your favorite?

    He blended the struggle of the Appalachian people and the coal companies.

    New York Times best-selling author Larry Bond’s Dangerous Ground, starring Navy lieutenant commander Jerry Mitchell, was hailed as a “hugely entertaining adventure” by Library Journal. In Exit Plan, Mitchell’s crew is ordered to the Iranian coast for a mission to retrieve intelligence on Iran’s nuclear weapons. But while en route, their mini-sub catches fire, forcing Mitchell and four SEALs to swim to shore - and into enemy territory.

    Fresh off his involvement in solving San Francisco's Japantown murders, antiques dealer Jim Brodie had returned to Tokyo for some R&R, and to hunt down a rare ink painting by the legendary Japanese Zen master Sengai for one of his clients - not to take on another case with his late father's P.I. firm. But out of respect for the old soldier, Brodie agrees to provide a security detail, thinking it'll be an easy job and end when the man comes to his senses. Instead, an unexpected, brutal murder rocks Brodie and his crew, sending them deep into the realm of the Triads.

    With nine straight number one New York Times bestsellers and over 17 million copies in print in the United States alone, it's easy to see why the New York Times has anointed Lee Child as "the best thriller writer of the moment". Now, as fans anxiously await the next full-length Reacher adventure, Child delivers a riveting new short story featuring the world's most beloved vigilante hero, Jack Reacher.

    Great - exceptional - penetrating

    What did you like best about Japantown? What did you like least?

    It was a very intriguing and interesting book, the history of the samurai and how they work in the present was a good and compelling idea.


    Would you recommend Japantown to your friends? Why or why not?

    I would recommend the book but thought is was a bit on the long


    Was Japantown worth the listening time?

    I think that towards the end it seemed like the book should have ended about 45 min earlier

    From coast to coast, the nation is witnessing a new wave of terror - suicide bombers incite blind panic and paralyzing fear, a flight attendant tries to crash an airliner, a police officer opens fire on fans in a stadium, and at CIA headquarters, a deputy director goes on a murderous rampage. The perpetrators appear to be American but are actually covert agents in a vast network of terror, selected and trained for one purpose only: the complete annihilation of America.
