    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Ramon says: "Great story with nice twists"
    "Worst audio book I've encountered in over 10 years"
    Overall

    This has to be the worst ever. I may never buy a Baldacci again. Sophomoric, unbelievable, and 'padded' to make it longer. I so wish I'd taken the time to read the reviews (I usually do). I truly believe most listeners could do a better job. Mr. Baldacci should be embarrassed as he takes our money to the bank!

    Hospitalized after a liaison with another man's wife ends in violence, Paul Cole has just one goal: to rebuild his shattered life. But with his memory damaged, the police hounding him, and no way to even get home, Paul's facing steep odds - and a bleak fate if he fails. This final, never-before-published novel by three-time Edgar Award winner Donald E. Westlake is a noir masterpiece, a dark and painful portrait of a man's struggle against merciless forces that threaten to strip him of his very identity.

    Alicia Czechowski says: "The accident of existence"
    "A very poor and disappointing book"
    Overall

    I wouldn't recommend this to anyone. I persisted to the end thinking that Paul Kohl would finally have some reasonable conclusion in this story. At 20 minutes left I realized that I was in trouble. A very dark and depressing story with really nothing good to be said about it. The absolutely worst book I've ever purchased from Audible.

    In picturesque Moonlight Cove, California, inexplicable deaths occur, and spine-tingling terror descends to this "edge of paradise". Growing numbers of residents harbor a secret so dark it is sure to cost even more lives.

    Peggy says: "Just a bit much for me"
    "Poor example of Koontz`"
    Overall

    This has to be the WORST audio selection I've ever had (and I have several hundred in my library). Very poorly written, Koontz obviously was flying on his reputation alone. I was glad when it finally ended.
