    On a busy Washington morning, the stately calm of the White House is shattered in a deadly terrorist attack on the executive mansion. The president is evacuated to an underground bunker, but not before nearly one hundred hostages are taken. Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    More Four! Fans of the Divergent series by number-one New York Times best-selling author Veronica Roth will be thrilled by "The Transfer", the first of four new short stories told from Four's perspective. Each brief story explores the world of the Divergent series through the eyes of the mysterious but charismatic Tobias Eaton, revealing previously unknown facets of his personality, backstory, and relationships.

    I guess I wasn't paying attention when I ordered this. This book is basically the first couple chapters from the Divergent book, albeit from Four's perspective. Expensive mistake as it was short and nothing new. VERY disappointing!

    The hotly awaited second book in the dystopian Matched trilogy.... In search of a future that may not exist and faced with the decision of who to share it with, Cassia journeys to the Outer Provinces in pursuit of Ky - taken by the Society to his certain death - only to find that he has escaped, leaving a series of clues in his wake.

    Story

    I was anxiously awaiting the follow-on book to Matched, which I thoroughly enjoyed. Crossed was just ok. It was difficult at times connecting the current story line to the previous book - and if you didn't read/listen to Matched (the first book in the series) I am afraid it would be difficult to follow some of the story line.

    Newly appointed CIA director Dr. Irene Kennedy is the target of an inside plot to destroy her and prematurely end the American President's term. To make matters worse, Saddam Hussein is close to entering the nuclear arms race - something Israel has vowed to stop. With the haunting specter of World War III looming, the president calls on his secret weapon: top counter-terrorism operative Mitch Rapp. But with only two weeks to take out the nukes, Rapp is up against a ticking clock - and impossible odds.

    Story

    I have downloaded many books from Audible.com and have not run into a single narrator that I couldn't listen to - until now. Ken Kilban is so bad that I could only get through about 15 minutes. I cannot finish listening to the audible version and will purchase the hard copy instead. It's like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard - super annoying!! I am very disappointed that they didn't continue with the narrator as Transfer of Power, and hope that Executive Power does not use Ken Kilban or I will have wasted another download.
