    For 10 years something has gnawed at Isaiah Quintabe's gut and kept him up nights, boiling with anger and thoughts of revenge. Ten years ago, when Isaiah was just a boy, his brother was killed by an unknown assailant. The search for the killer sent Isaiah plunging into despair and nearly destroyed his life. Even with a flourishing career, a new dog, and near-iconic status as a PI in his hometown, East Long Beach, he has to begin the hunt again - or lose his mind.

    Story

    this is a murder mystery Mayhem suspense thriller type book. however,its main characters are different than me hard-boiled cop or the struggling lady lawyer. the cases are not the white blonde girl gone missing or a serial killer. the characters are believable and the cases are interesting. I purchase the first one because it was on sale I purchase the second one cuz I really thought it was good

    the plot was interesting. but the narrator was over dramatic and his voice would be better suited for Saturday cartoons.

    Nothing stops former Navy SEAL and Tier One operator John Dempsey from answering the call of duty - including a mission with the highest stakes he's ever faced. When one of the most brazen and lethal acts of terrorism rocks American and Israeli intelligence forces at the highest levels, Dempsey's ultracovert antiterror unit, Ember, mobilizes. But this operation isn't just a retaliatory strike by Ember; it's a mission of vengeance for Dempsey.

    A narrator can take a good book and make it great and thats whar Ray Porter has done. it's hard to have an action book that has deep character development but the Tier 1 Series has mastered it. Looking forward to book 4.

    John Dempsey's life - as an elite Tier One Navy SEAL named Jack Kemper - is over. A devastating terrorist action catapults him from a world of moral certainty and decisive orders into the shadowy realm of espionage, where ambiguity is the only rule. His new mission: hunt down those responsible for the greatest tragedy in the history of the US Special Ops and bring them to justice.

    Story

    I don't typically read books with a heavy military/ espionage/middle east theme. But something drew me to this book and I'm glad I read it. the plot was military light and more about character development. the well paced action throughout the book wasn't laden with a bunch of military jargon. Ray Porter was outstanding as the narrator . I look forward to reading the second book

    The chief justice of the Supreme Court is about to be defamed by a powerful gossip website called Slander Sheet, which specializes in dirt on celebs and politicians. Their top reporter has written an exposé claiming that the chief justice had liaisons with an escort, a young woman willing to appear on video and tell the world her salacious yet convincing tale. But the chief justice is not without formidable allies, and his greatest supporter is determined to stop the story in its tracks.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Stan says: "Disliked all the Sound Effects."
    "sound effects are awful"
    Overall

    there are sound effects throughout the book like shots being fired and piercing skin in addition to dramatic background music. It is awful and distracting and I will not listen to any of the books in the series which is a shame because I like David Balducci

    Nina Granville believes her business trip to Alaska will give her a short respite from the merry-go-round that came with her engagement to Congressman Terrence Donnelly. But instead of allowing her the peace she craves, Nina's getaway from the public eye means that no one witnesses her abduction into a very cold hell.
