    While former Marine lieutenant Robin Duncan is no stranger to corruption or conspiracy, she has always been able to tell the good guys from the bad. At first, her current assignment is no different: working on behalf of an international corporation to secure a valuable Congo mining region from the attacks of an insurgent killer. But as her security team tries to track down their target, Robin has to face a man who broke her trust years ago, and she discovers the gray areas extend further in this jungle than she anticipated.

    Would you try another book from Jeanette Windle and/or Brooke Sanford Heldman?

    NO


    Would you ever listen to anything by Jeanette Windle again?

    I DOUBT IT


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Brooke Sanford Heldman?

    SCOTT BRICK


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    NO-I WAS DISAPPOINTED FROM THE FIRST FEW CHAPTERS.


    Any additional comments?

    THIS BOOK HAD A LOT OF REDUNDANT SCRIPTURE QUOTATIONS WHICH SEEMED TO BE JUST SPACE FILLERS I WISH I WOULD HAVE EXCHANGED IT. IT APPEARED TO BE A GOOD ADVENTURE STORY BY THE DESCRIPTION BUT WAS I FOOLED!

    Xiang Li Cheng, the President of the People's Republic of China, has both a problem and a plan. The problem is that the limited supply of oil available to China is threatening to derail his country's economic growth and prosperity. But to secure access to those resources, he must contend with powerful U.S. Navy and the Pacific Fleet. After a decades-long largely secret military buildup, Cheng sets his plan in motion by suddenly invading Taiwan and drawing the Pacific Fleet in to its defense.

    The author needs a better editor. It was too long and too redundant. As to the recording, I got very tired of the performer calling out torpedo distances (which is. Another thing that could have been edited out).

    The catastrophic power of a giant hurricane can raise coastal waves 30 feet high and blow through houses at devastating speeds. For TV meteorologist Perry Stuart, however, such predictions are hypothetical, as he chiefly predicts periods of English drizzle - until a fellow forecaster offers him a Caribbean hurricane-chasing ride in a small airplane as a holiday diversion. But a frightening accident teaches Stuart more secrets than wind speeds.

    Barbara says: "Another Excellent "read""

    I missed the regular narrator and this book was too far afield from his forte---Racing!
    Didn't care for it.

    There were 12 of them. Bottoms, that is. Au naturel. The most eye-wrecking collection of derrieres ever to pop out of a printed page - the "WOW' pin-up girls...one for each month of the year. No faces, no names, not even swaddling clothes...just September, October, December, like that. Man, you should have seen January - every inch a torrid zone. And wouldn't you know I'd get to work through the whole calendar? Well, they don't call me Shell Scott for nothing.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    BETTER NARRATION


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    SHELL SCOTT


    How could the performance have been better?

    THE DETECTIVE IS A HIP HOLLYWOOD GUY! THE NARRATOR MADE HIM SOUND LIKE THE TEC CAME FROM DOWN ON THE FARM


    What character would you cut from Dance with the Dead?

    NA
