    It’s amateur hour at the White House. So says New York Times best-selling author Edward Klein in his political exposé The Amateur. Tapping into the public’s growing sentiment that President Obama is in over his head, The Amateur argues that Obama’s toxic combination of incompetence and arrogance has run our nation and his presidency off the rails.

    Great compilation of information. Where was this before the election of 2008? A must-read into the background of our least-vetted President.

    The Whip is inspired by the true story of Charlotte "Charley" Parkhurst (1812-1879) who lived most of her extraordinary life as a man. As a young woman in Rhode Island, she fell in love with a runaway slave and had his child. The destruction of her family drove her west to California, dressed as a man, to track the killer. Charley became a renowned stagecoach driver for Wells Fargo, during the renowned California 'gold rush' days. She killed a famous outlaw, had a secret love affair, and lived with a housekeeper who, unaware of her true sex, fell in love with her.

    Story

    I'm a fan of historical novels and this one was no disappointment. The story was poignant and had me doing a lot of thinking about how I could have lived in that period of time. Robin Weigert was excellent doing the narration. I thoroughly enjoyed this book.

    Lou Welcome, from Palmer's bestselling Oath of Office, is back in this heart stopping medical thriller. A desperate phone call embroils Lou in scandal and murder involving Dr. Gary McHugh, known around the Capital as the "society doc." Lou has been supervising McHugh, formerly a black-out drinker, through his work with the Physician Wellness Office. McHugh has been very cavalier about his recovery, barely attending AA and refusing a sponsor. But Lou sees progress, and the two men are becoming friends.

    Story

    I enjoyed Oath of Office and thought this would be a good follow-on story. The medical portions are pretty good but there are some pretty glaring errors in the military portions. The whole story was a bit of a stretch with some serious lack of judgment from the two main characters. I'm not completely put off and may try some of Michael Palmer's other novels. This one was just kind of ho-hum for me though. The narration was good and that's what kept me listening to the end.

    The Delta Solution is an action-packed novel pitting Navy SEAL Mack Bedford against the Somali pirates operating off the southerly reaches of the lawless East African republic on the Indian Ocean. For the past three years, these heavily armed tribal brigands have been capturing and holding for ransom massive cargo ships, and violently demanding millions of dollars for their return. Hero Mack Bedford is deployed to obliterate them in the middle of the Indian Ocean, at all costs, once and for all.

    G. House Sr. says: "Good story but needs editing, 33% too long"

    Story

    Patrick Robinson does an excellent job of taking us behind the scenes and into the workings of a special ops mission. Although fiction, there's enough fact to keep the story believable. Fast-paced action that has you riveted. Hooyah for the Navy SEALs!

    This explosive novel of the drug trade takes you deep inside a world riddled with corruption, betrayal, and bloody revenge. From the streets of New York City to Mexico City and Tijuana to the jungles of Central America, this is the war on drugs like you've never seen it.

    Story

    Begin with the inner workings of the drug cartels, add the mob angle, and anti-drug interdiction efforts, and you have a great story that just keeps getting better. It's very believable. Also, as a 30-year resident of Southern California, I felt like I knew exactly where the author was taking me. A great listen!

    Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    They are stronger, heal better, and think faster than any humans ever created, and they must be destroyed. But not even Victor Helios, once Frankenstein, can stop the engineered killers he's set loose on a reign of terror through modern-day New Orleans. Now the only hope rests in a one-time "monster" and his all-too-human partners, Detectives Carson O'Connor and Michael Maddison.

    Great series. I've listened to all five and I'm not disappointed! An old story line is really brought to life in present day New Orleans. I'm recommending this to everyone.
