    Story
    (149)

    From Tokyo, to London, to Johannesburg, high-level bankers are being gruesomely tortured and murdered. The killer, caught in a fleeting glimpse on a surveillance camera, has been described as a psychopath with an eye patch. And that means Gregor Volkov, Derrick Storm's old nemesis, has returned. Desperate to figure out who Volkov is working for and why, the CIA calls on the one man who can match Volkov's strength and cunning - Derrick Storm.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    More believable names, somehow "Ling She Bang", "Graham Cracker" and others don't ring plausible. Getting on to a 747 while it was taking off doesn't really cut it either.


    What was most disappointing about Richard Castle’s story?

    See above


    What didn’t you like about Robert Petkoff’s performance?

    It was OK


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really.

  • With Musket and Tomahawk Vol I: The Saratoga Campaign and the Wilderness War of 1777

    Story

    With Musket and Tomahawk is a vivid account of the American and British struggles in the sprawling wilderness region of the northeast during the Revolutionary War. Combining strategic, tactical, and personal detail, this book describes how the patriots of the recently organized Northern Army defeated England's massive onslaught of 1777, thereby all but ensuring America's independence.

    What did you like best about this story?

    I've visited the Saratoga National Battlefield numerous times and I'm familiar with how the battle(s) was fought, the book brings the events of 9/19/77 and 10/7/77 to life.


    Have you listened to any of Dennis Johnson’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No


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

    The book title would be fine.


    Any additional comments?

    Mr. Johnson should have learned how to pronounce "Schoharie".

    Story
    (98)

    The 40-year-old crucifixion of a prominent labor leader named Jack Flynn remains an unsolved atrocity that has never been forgotten in New Iberia, Louisiana. When Flynn's daughter, Megan, returns to the site of her father's murder, it quickly becomes clear that her family's blood-stained past will not stay buried. Megan gives her old friend Dave Robicheaux a tip about a small-time criminal named Cool Breeze Broussard, scarcely suspecting that the seemingly innocuous case will lead Robicheaux and his partner into the midst of a deadly conspiracy.
