    A comet the color of blood and flame cuts across the sky. And from the ancient citadel of Dragonstone to the forbidding shores of Winterfell, chaos reigns. Six factions struggle for control of a divided land and the Iron Throne of the Seven Kingdoms, preparing to stake their claims through tempest, turmoil, and war.

    Teddy says: "Did not disappoint..."
    "Too long winded"
    Overall

    We down loaded the books in this series based on the reviews. The story dragged on, with no plot. I deleted the books after only listening to two hours of the first book.

    Attorney Deborah Knott is North Carolina's answer to V.I. Warshawski, a legal sleuth with a knack for sniffing out the most baffling crimes. Deborah has just done the unthinkable: entered the heated race for judge of old-boy-ruled Colleton County. The only female candidate, she's busy reeling in voters and giving campaign speeches. There couldn't be a worse time for Gayle Whitehead to beg Deborah to investigate the 18-year-old unsolved murder of Gayle's mother, Janie.

    What did you like best about Bootlegger's Daughter? What did you like least?

    Sorry, nothing to say. I can from the "if you can't say something nice" era


    What could Margaret Maron have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Faster pace, I usually listen as I drive, and the story did not hold my intrest


    What do you think the narrator could have done better?

    You can only read the book as written. The narration was adequate, maybe just not my cup of tea


    Was Bootlegger's Daughter worth the listening time?

    No, I love mysteries, legal thrillers and medical thrillers. It's getting harder to find a series that is worth no only the money but my time.

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    What did you love best about The Panther?

    Well done research, believeable story line


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    True New York cop style - John


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Since I discovered Audible, I have read very few books. A good naration brings the story to life. Also makes the driving easier.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Government cover up, or acts of war!


    Any additional comments?

    Great author and naration
