    Many astonishing and affecting things happen at the racetrack, and the mysterious universe of horse racing, passionate, cold-hearted, pure, corrupt, is woven into a marvelous tapestry of joy and love, chicanery, folly, greed, and reckless courage. Spanning two years on the circuit, from Kentucky and California to New York and Paris, Horse Heaven, puts us among trainers, nervey jockeys, billionaire breeders, and restless track wives.

    Julie Delio says: "I wish I could review book and narrator separately"
    "Great for horse people."

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Really got into a real horse person's mind. Some misses on horse terminology, but only a few. Wonderful story line. Yes, I would and have recommended this book.


    What other book might you compare Horse Heaven to and why?

    Seabiscuit


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It made you laugh and cry. I own and love horses and it captured the feelings I have everyday.

    Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence. And Sean is forced to take on a thankless investigation into the murder of a scientist just inside the CIA's razor-wire fence near Williamsburg, Virginia. But they will need to team up again to stop a conspiracy of traitors operating in the shadow of the White House itself.

    R.E. Vazquez says: "not Baldacci's best"
    "David always finishes his characters. Love Brick!"

    Would you listen to Simple Genius again? Why?

    yes, sometimes you miss some of the little things.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Sean, steady, thinks ahead and sounds like a perfert gentleman.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Sean, but Scott Brick is the best no matter which character he does. You can tell which character he is the second he changes his voice.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No, I love the digest what I've heard and then listen to a little more.
