    When Clementine Kaye, archivist Beecher White's first childhood crush, shows up at the National Archives asking for his help, Beecher tries to impress her by showing her the secret vault where the president of the United States privately reviews classified documents. They accidentally happen upon a priceless artifact - and find themselves suddenly entangled in a web of deception, conspiracy, and murder.

    Even if we live within sight of the sea, it is easy to forget that our world is an ocean world. The open ocean, that vast expanse of international waters, begins just a few miles out and spreads across three-fourths of the globe. It is a place of storms and danger, both natural and manmade. And at a time when every last patch of land is claimed by one government or another, it is a place that remains radically free.

    Darren says: "Amazing Narrative!"

    Overall

    First, a rare occasion of an author who is an excellent reader. A similar experience to listening Bill Bryson reading his work. The passion of the author reaches out, like having dinner with a friend who is an excellent speaker, knowledgable, and entertaining.

    Second, an amazing step inside the world of ships, the oceans, and the people who conduct commerce on the seas. I recommend The Outlaw Sea highly. I look forward to more by this author.

  • Treason: Liberal Treachery from the Cold War to the War on Terrorism

    In a stunning follow-up to her number one best seller Slander, leading conservative pundit Ann Coulter contends that liberals have been wrong on every foreign policy issue, from the fight against Communism at home and abroad, the Nixon and the Clinton presidencies, and the struggle with the Soviet empire right up to today's war on terrorism.

    Mark says: "A bizarre phenomenon"

    Overall

    I found way too many negative reviews for Ann to let it go. I've enjoyed both her books and cannot wait for her next. She is insightful, intelligent, and has no problem poking the status quo in the eye. Her conservative views only enhance her research into how Liberals and the left-wing try daily to destroy the United States. In an era of "I voted for it before I voted against it" liberals, Ann makes me proud to be Conservative.

    Ann Coulter, "pundit extraordinaire," takes a hard look at modern political discourse. Refreshingly honest, unerringly timely, Coulter lashes into liberals and demonstrates how the media obfuscates the issues, belittles the right and praises the left. Her outspoken manner has made her one of the most fascinating women in politics, according to George magazine. Don't miss C-SPAN's Booknotes: Ann Coulter's Slander.

    Amazon Customer says: "Liberals Should Listen to the Book"
    "Amazing Political Awakening"
    Overall

    If you're a conservative, you'll love it! If liberal, you'll call her a liar -- without listening to the facts. Ms. Coulter thoroughly dissects the "Press" and their biased news coverage. If you're looking for the facts to support your feeling that the network news never seems to get it right, this book is a "must-listen"!

    You'll stop at Europe's most diverting and historic locales and view the Old World through Bryson's tourist eye view in this affectionate, blisteringly insightful, and riotously funny pilgrimage from the frozen wastes of Scandinavia to the chaotic tumult of Istanbul.

    Bryson is like the Professor we all wanted to have in College, the one your friends had but you couldn't get in. His intelligent narratives and thorough investigation will make you beg to listen to his next book. Although Bryson and I don't share the same politics, I love his writing just the same. In addition, he is one of the few writers who do justice to their books as the reader.

    From the best selling author of A Walk in the Woods, comes this hilarious social commentary that conveys the true glory of Britain. Check out more Bill Bryson.

    Dave says: "Crackin' yarn, lad!"
    "Fantastic"
    Overall

    Bill Bryson could be a boon to Academia -- if the snobs would let him in. All his books are intelligently written with humor and a real knack to make you learn.
