    One by one, children of New York's wealthiest are taken hostage. But the criminal doesn't crave money or power--he only wants to ask the elite if they know the price others pay for their luxurious lifestyles. And, if they don't, he corrects their ignorance - by killing them.

    When attorneys Vernetta Henderson and Neddy McClain are tapped to take on the biggest case of their careers, they are less than thrilled about working together. Their strained relationship, however, is the least of their problems. Their socialite client - charged with the brutal murder of her husband - is demanding an immediate dismissal of the case. But a ruthless prosecutor is determined to make sure that doesn't happen.

    For former Marine sniper Dox, a long-range hit in Cambodia was supposed to be just business as usual. But when you find yourself mixed up with rogue intelligence operations, gorgeous bar girls, and the world's worst human-trafficking heart of darkness, business is anything but usual. And making it personal is the most dangerous business of all.

    I love the Dox character so this was a nice deviation from the typical book in the Rain series. He can be ruthless when needed, but inside he has a soft heart.

    For Delilah, the Mossad's top seductress, the parameters of the assignment were routine. The contractor: MI6. The objective: infiltrate a terror network, this one operating out of London. The stakes: a series of poison gas attacks on civilian population centers.There's just one wrinkle. The target is a woman - as smart, beautiful, and committed as Delilah herself. And for a cynical operative thrust suddenly out of her element, the twists and turns of the spy game are nowhere near as dangerous as the secrets and desires of the human heart.

    Enjoyed this short story about Delilah from her perspective. In this listen she is in London on assignment, but this time it's to befriend a woman as opposed to a relationship with a man.
    During the assignment and afterward she struggles with decisions she had to make and the consequences.

    For most couples, a quiet dinner for two at Auberge de la Reine Blanche on the Ile Saint Louis would be just the thing to smooth out the complications in a romance. But for gorgeous Mossad operative Delilah and trying-to-retire contract killer John Rain, nothing is ever easy, and when Rain sees a crew of hard-looking men setting up outside the restaurant, he realizes someone has been bringing her work home with her. Is it a hit - or something even worse?

    This is a (very) short story about John Rain's struggle with having his girlfriend, Delilah, in "the life" while he has quit. He has the realization that maybe the two just don't mix.

    What makes a legendary assassin? For John Rain, it was the lessons of love, war, and betrayal he learned in Tokyo in 1972. Fresh from the killing fields of Southeast Asia, Rain works as a bagman under the watchful eye of his CIA handler, delivering cash to corrupt elements of the Japanese government. But when a delivery goes violently wrong, Rain finds himself in the crosshairs of Japan’s most powerful yakuza clan.

    Story

    I thoroughly enjoyed this listen. I've listened to and enjoyed the other books in this series. This is a bit different because older John Rain is telling you about his earlier years and how he got into "the life." The older Rain points out ways the young Rain is not as observant or thoughtful of things that he is now. He also tells the reader about a woman with whom he fell in love and the things he learned from her that would be important later.

    Story

    I am also listening to the John Rain Series, which I enjoy, and was glad to see a new character by this author. This book was a good listen and I'm looking forward to more books with this character. I've listened to the second book in this series and do recommend listening to this one first (it always helps to know some of the prior details).

    This book is about two brothers who are so different and think each situation should be handled differently. Of course there is a female, and both brothers are attracted to her. There are some details about the story line and characters that I recommend paying attention to because they come up later in the book. Some things that happen at the end with the character Hort are also good to know when listening to the second book in the series.

    Story

    This was my first Terri Blackstock listen (or read) and it was a pleasant surprise. I'm used to listening to books that have more details than I would like and usually think the point can be made without quite so much detail. I appreciated the faith the mother had throughout her situation, and that the book had a realistic part at the end where the children understand mom has a lot of faith but they don't suddenly fall at the alter in repentance.

    This is a good listen for someone who likes suspense or drama but doesn't want the gory scenes or details. The religion factor is not overplayed like they're trying to hit you over the head with it. I'm planning on listening to the other two books in this series, and possibly others by this author.

    The sequel you’ve been waiting for: the follow-up to the sensational number-one best seller The Devil Wears Prada. Andrea "Andy" Sachs is on top of the world, running her own very successful high-fashion bridal magazine. But she got there with the help of her rolodex - actually, the rolodex of Miranda Priestly, her former nightmare of a boss. As Andy's success grows, she realizes she'll soon have to face Miranda. Still, Andy can hardly anticipate the horrifying reality that’s approaching - a reversal so profound that she will be squarely in Miranda’s crosshairs once more.

    Story

    For me, this type of book is unrealistic and fun. I try not to have "expectations" other than to be entertained. Lauren Weisberger is a writer who does a good job of entertaining.

    Andy is back with THE Emily as her best friend and co-creator of a bridal magazine. They're both married, with no children yet, and enjoying their success. Enter Miranda, who wants a piece of the pie/magazine that Andy and Emily have worked so hard to create and make a success. As usual, Miranda turns everything upside down for Andy. But Emily has a lack of memory as to what it was like working for Miranda. While Em is having selective memory and trying to look at everything on the positive side, Andy remembers everything. The thought of working with Miranda again is Andy's absolute worst nightmare.

    A high-profile attorney in the middle of a leave of absence following a personal tragedy is drawn back into the legal arena amidst a media firestorm when he agrees to represent a popular rap artist accused of brutally murdering his pop star girlfriend. With its powerful voice, pause-resisting tension, and strong cast of characters, Adam Mitzner’s novels are reminiscent of such best-selling authors as Scott Turow and John Grisham.

    Story

    I listened to Adam Mitzner's first book and loved it. I was so glad to see another book by this author.

    A lawyer, Dan, is taking time off after a family tragedy. He's almost hit bottom but he meets a female attorney, Nina, through friends. She convinces him to come back to law and represent a rapper accused of brutally murdering his girlfriend, who was considered a "pop princess."

    Nothing is what it seems, even at the end. The attorneys are trying to solve the murder - was it their client or someone else? But they keep finding another lie their client has told them which led them in the wrong direction. The story is not predictable and could definitely be considered "ripped from the headlines" as others have said. This will keep you guessing.

    I'm looking forward to Mr. Mitzner's next book.

    Lottie just knows that her boyfriend is going to propose during lunch at one of London’s fanciest restaurants. But when his big question involves a trip abroad, not a trip down the aisle, she’s completely crushed. So when Ben, an old flame, calls her out of the blue and reminds Lottie of their pact to get married if they were both still single at 30, she jumps at the chance. No formal dates - just a quick march to the altar and a honeymoon on Ikonos, the sun-drenched Greek island where they first met years ago. Their family and friends are horrified. Fliss, Lottie’s older sister, knows that Lottie can be impulsive - but surely this is her worst decision yet.

    Story

    This listen was so much fun! There are many parts that are absolutely not realistic...but that's the FUN part of a Sophie Kinsella book!

    Fliss is the older sister who thinks she is trying to protect her younger sister, Lottie. But, for Fliss, it's really about something else. Lorcan thinks he is such good friends with Ben, but there's jealousy, a rivalry and Lorcan's concern about Ben's business decisions.

    If you want to lose yourself in a girlie book that is fun and unrealistic, then I recommend this for you!
