    African diamonds are being smuggled into the United States, and it's up to the British Secret Service to infiltrate the organized crime families in America and destroy the smugglers. James Bond is not afraid of gangsters, but then he hasn't really met any until now. With advice from his American friend, Felix Leiter, Bond tracks a diamond smuggling ring from Africa through London to the United States.

    I'm demanding a refund. I will either get the credit returned, an undamaged copy of this book or the appropriate government agency shall get an email about this audiobook.

    A deadly serious game of hide-and-seek is on. The CIA's brilliant young analyst, Jack Ryan, thinks he knows the reason for the sudden Red Fleet operation: the Soviets' most valuable ship, the Red October, is attempting to defect to the United States.

    Story

    I loved this book. I originally had it on about 9 or ten audio cassettes, but I had lost them and I wanted to hear the story again. So much more detail than the movie. The only complaint about the book was the narrator mispronounced "Pass Christian" (it's 4 syllables, not 3... Christian sounds like the girl's name Christy Anne; not like the English word for a group of Religions that include Catholics, Methodists and Mormons). If this is my "only complaint" you can begin to understand why I gave 5 stars.

    If you've seen the movie, you don't know the story in this book.


    ?Spoiler Alert?: (I put many hard returns to make it not immediately visible, just in case those who haven't read the book yet).













    I love the irony of the Invisible Battlegroup (British vessels) protecting the Atlantic Coast.

    Story

    Carved into a moving island of ice twice the size of the United States, Ice Station Grendel has been abandoned for more than 70 years. The twisted brainchild of the finest minds of the former Soviet Union, it was designed to be inaccessible and virtually invisible. But an American undersea research vessel has inadvertently pulled too close - and something has been sighted moving inside the allegedly deserted facility, something whose survival defies every natural law.

    Mobilis says: "Scooby Doo With Scarier Monsters"
    "Chiller Thriller"
    Overall

    Very believable cast (especially motives and back story). The most unbelievable things were some items of the ice station Gendel's backstory (some things not mentioned in the teaser [hint = involving co-operation], so I'm not writing a spoiler, just a review). I do not know much about the life sciences, but he made things sound so believable. There were some things in the end that I didn't expect to happen (but the good kind of surprised). Amazonia is still the best he wrote IMHO.

    Definitely worth the 1 credit.
