    The killer's depravity is insatiable. What he does to his victims is unthinkable. Homicide detective turned P.I. Frank Quinn has seen this M.O. before. A demented ritual, it's the work of Daniel Danielle - a notorious serial killer who blurs the line between male and female, human and monster. Danielle disappeared ten years ago. Is a copy cat repeating the crimes? Or has Danielle made a deadly return? Either way, this time the killing won't stop....

    I actually like books by this author but, after a time, they all tend to follow the same type of story line. What keeps me listening to them is Scott Brick. He can turn any story, good or poor, into a winner. Some other listeners are not so enthralled by his type of narration but it works for me.

    An ordinary snapshot causes a mother’s world to unravel in an instant. After picking up her two young children from school, Grace Lawson looks through a newly developed set of photographs. She finds an odd one in the pack: A mysterious picture from perhaps twenty years ago, showing four strangers she can’t identify. But there is one face she recognizes—that of her husband, from before she knew him. When her husband sees the photo that night, he leaves their home and drives off without explanation.

    The thing I noticed about Coben, Patterson, and the rest is that they feel satisfied by just publishing book after book. It seems that they have lost their will to excel. This books points this out so well. Story is fine, performance is fine. But nothing exceptional or worth sharing with friends.

    It is 1944: Daniel, a soldier, legendary among the Norwegians fighting the advance of Bolshevism on the Russian front, is killed. Two years later, a wounded soldier wakes up in a Vienna hospital. He becomes involved with a young nurse, the consequences of which will ripple forward to the turn of the next century. In 1999, Harry Hole, alone again after having caused an embarrassment in the line of duty, has been promoted to inspector and is lumbered with surveillance duties. He is assigned the task of monitoring neo-Nazi activities....

    Jo Nesbo is such a great story teller. His stories as well developed. His characters are interesting. I wish some of our American writers, those that "crank" out book after book, would do the work they clearly are capable of. Nesbo can serve as an example.

    A sleazy motel, burrowed on the edge of town, is haunted by rumors of dead hookers found between mattresses and peep holes drilled through walls. When Special Agent Daniels targets the motel during an investigation, the nefarious owner, Sanjay, must scramble to conceal evidence of his own dark deeds. Just when he believes things can't get any worse, motel guests begin to vanish without a trace.

    Story

    When an author has to rely on angry, ugly, pornography to appeal to readers, then he is not much to an author. I look for more than a cheap, ill-devised story that draws out the lowest form of interest from readers. This is a nasty book written by an author devoid of original thought; that is unless foot sized bedbugs and vivid descriptions of violent sex acts serve that purpose. Rose Caraway should not be pleased with having to narrate this hideous book.

    After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America.

    If you are looking for a book only based on proper grammar, this book may be for you.
    If you are looking for a book written by a lazy author or one without skill, this book may also be for you.
    If you are looking for a book with a cheap and unimaginative story, this book is for you.

    This is an eye-roller of a book. Never again a book by this author, not even for inane entertainment.

    John Foster Dulles was secretary of state while his brother, Allen Dulles, was director of the Central Intelligence Agency. In this book, Stephen Kinzer places their extraordinary lives against the backdrop ofAmerican culture and history. He uses the framework of biography to ask: Why does the United States behave as it does in the world?

    A great book that tells the story of us, the United States, the effect that the Dulles brothers had and continue to have on our standing in the world, and how we view ourselves. This book explains how our actions during the 50s and early 60s continue to come home to roost.

    A must read (listen).

    In Washington: A Life celebrated biographer Ron Chernow provides a richly nuanced portrait of the father of our nation. This crisply paced narrative carries the reader through his troubled boyhood, his precocious feats in the French and Indian War, his creation of Mount Vernon, his heroic exploits with the Continental Army, his presiding over the Constitutional Convention, and his magnificent performance as America's first president.

    Story

    What a fascinating account of the life of a great, albeit flawed, man. I suspect that Mr. Chernow went into this project with a positive opinion of Washington, and I had to remind myself to remember that, despite my admiration for Washington, I should keep things in perspective and remember that this only presents one side. It was fascinating to "read" about the deceit and dishonesty that Washington faced. For better or worse it reminds me of the same deceit and dishonesty that people like these generals now heap on our presidents of today. Scott Brick made me interested in a book I otherwise would likely not have listened to. A wonderful performance. All of us, in the interest of understanding the roots of our nation, should listen to this riveting account.

    Six years have passed since Jake Fisher watched Natalie, the love of his life, marry another man. Six years of hiding a broken heart by throwing himself into his career as a college professor. Six years of keeping his promise to leave Natalie alone, and six years of tortured dreams of her life with her new husband, Todd. But six years haven’t come close to extinguishing his feelings, and when Jake comes across Todd’s obituary, he can’t keep himself away from the funeral. There he gets the glimpse of Todd’s wife he’s hoping for...but she is not Natalie....

    What did you love best about Six Years?

    The story line is great and so many surprises.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    This book is by far the best by Harlen Coben. I kept looking forward to my next opportunity to continue listening.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    I like every one of Scott Brick's performances. He is a master story teller. Absolutely the best.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    The whole book.


    Any additional comments?

    A great book. Definitely worth the credit. I wish all stories were like this. I am not sure my wife would appreciate my absence as I listen to the stories.

    Winter of the World picks up right where the first book left off, as its five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, Welsh - enter a time of enormous social, political, and economic turmoil, beginning with the rise of the Third Reich, through the Spanish Civil War and the great dramas of World War II, up to the explosions of the American and Soviet atomic bombs. As always with Ken Follett, the historical background is brilliantly researched and rendered, the action fast-moving, the characters rich in nuance and emotion.

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Story

    As usual, Scott Brick delivers a great performance. As a matter of fact, had it not been for Scott, this book would have been a bit difficult to "read".

    While Nelson DeMille's previous books have been very good, this story was somewhat anti-climactic. The book consisted of 95% preparation for the climax and 5% actual engagement of the enemy. This was disappointing.

    You will not go wrong if you look for an interesting story but if you are looking for engagement with the adversary, this book lacks.

    I like to listen to books by Clive Cussler and those who co-write with him. The combination of these authors and Scott Brick make for some interesting listening. I have found that I can "take" Cussler books with moderation and in small doses. Took much Cussler for me can lead to disinterest.
