    The year is 2032. The NRA has been outlawed; the U.S. military has been gutted; Conservative Christians, dubbed ANARKS, have been labeled a global conspiracy and have been largely driven underground. The Caliphate is now a superpower, residing in Israel. The White House is occupied by a repressive Progressive regime, obsessed with the upcoming presidential election.

    Would you try another book from Oliver North and/or Peyton Tochterman?

    Narration is uneven. Half the time he sounds like an air traffic controller enunciating for airplanes in the area. To change characters, he just goes louder and softer. Might be a good story with a professional performance.


    Would you recommend Heroes Proved to your friends? Why or why not?

    No. Too hard to listen to.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peyton Tochterman’s performances?

    No


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment

For as Colonel Butler pursues an elusive IRA/KGB assassin, Frances finds herself confronting dangerous questions, as more than one spectre is raised from the dark past.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Couldn't get past the screeching and whispering. I have no idea what it is about.


    Has Tomorrow's Ghost turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Don't really know what the genre is.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Impossible to listen to in the car. Perhaps a high end stereo would soften the screeches.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Tomorrow's Ghost?

    Didn't understand it or finish it. Total waste of money.

    The boy was born and raised on the Main Line, but he vanished on Philadelphia's mean streets, last seen in a downtown cheater's hotel. The boy's mother, Linda Coldren, is a golf superstar and Myron Bolitar's client. When he goes after the missing boy, presumed kidnapped, he crashes through a crowd of lowlifes, blue bloods, and liars on both sides of the social divide. Meanwhile, Linda's husband is trying to stage a comeback at the U.S. Open, only to be found dead in a sand trap.

    Catherine says: "More motives than ever..."
    "Backspin"
    Overall

    As a Coben fan, I really enjoyed the story. Unfortunately, the narrator drove me to distraction. I thought the dialog and voices were pretty good, but the narative between was sing-song and totally unnerving. The narrator could do with some lessons in reading the non-dialogue parts.
