    The narrator killed me to listen to him until I found out that I could speed up the reading to 1.5. This is not the only book that narrator read this slowly. I almost quit listening to this series due to his reading.

    From coast to coast and around the world, Janet Evanovich's Stephanie Plum novels continue to make best-selling history each summer. In the 13th book in the series, the stakes are raised even higher as Stephanie Plum finds herself in her most dangerous, hilarious, hottest, chase yet.

    It was not safe for me to dri e when the cable guy came into the conversation. Apparently the feeling is mutual throughout the states. Hate to be a cable person.

    Stephanie Plum, Trenton, New Jersey's favorite pistol-packing, condom-carrying bounty hunter, is back and on the trail of a revenge-seeking waitress who's skipped bail. With the help of 73-year-old Grandma Mazur, ex-hooker Lula, a transvestite musician named Sally Sweet, and the all-too-hospitable, all-too-sexy Joe Morelli, Stephanie might just catch her woman.

    The year is 1943, and Argentina is officially neutral, but crawling with every kind of spy, sympathizer, and military official imaginable. The hero is Cletus Frade, a Marine pilot recruited by the OSS, with strong family ties to Argentina. And in Death and Honor - Griffin's fourth book in the Honor Bound series and the first since 1999 - he's got a lot on his hands.

    Where does The Hades Factor rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This is a good book but one of the few books that had very poor editorial work. I counted seven areas where the sentences were repeated. I did not like the initial part of the book narration, like the narrator was trying to get me to understand what he was saying instead of letting me listen.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    Yes, initial narration was slow and seven areas were repeated.

    It is summer 1943. Two of the Allies’ most important plans are at grave risk: Operation Overlord’s invasion of France and the Manhattan Project’s race to build the atomic bomb. A furious President Roosevelt turns to OSS spy chief Wild Bill Donovan — and Donovan turns to Dick Canidy and his teams behind enemy lines. They’ve certainly got their work cut out for them....

    If you could sum up The Spymasters in three words, what would they be?

    Pretty Good


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Kept me interested, not on the edge of my seat though


    Which character – as performed by Christopher Lane – was your favorite?

    I have always liked Dick Canady


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

    Not really, there was some humor, but not real heavy laughable humor, it is not that type of book
