    New York Times best-selling author Stephen Hunter is back with another breakneck thriller, in which ex-Marine sniper, Ray Kruz, must outwit a group of murderous Somali terrorists who’ve laid siege to the Mall of America. Recently retired marine sergeant Ray Kruz has been talked into a mall trip by his fiancé, the beautiful Molly Chan. For Ray, Molly represents a way to reconnect with normal life, something his 20 years in the service and five tours in two combat zones have prevented.

    Jean says: "Another Action packed story from Hunter"

    What did you love best about Soft Target?

    Breakneck speed and it captures what is on everyone's mind today; terrorism in our own neighborhoods.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Ray Cruz is a real guy and not a super hero and that made us all identify with him.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    As the plan falls apart for the terrorists their incompetence takes over. Nice to think that we have better people walking the Malls than most of these groups send to do their dirty work.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I couldn't get out of the car. Kept reminding myself that it would be here when I got back in.


    Any additional comments?

    Stephen Hunter cranks them out and the readable style makes each of his books a lot like dessert after a good meal. For all of us former military guys it is a chance to remember that there are still good people out there to watch over our country.

    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    Rose says: "Thank you for the free story, however........"
    "You got me with this one"

    Story
    If you could sum up In Session: Dr. Morgan Snow with Steve Berry's Cotton Malone, Lee Child's Jack Reacher & Barry Eisler's John Rain in three words, what would they be?

    This should be the primer for all the Reacher, Cotton and John Rain series.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the John Rain segment because of the clever way he solved her problem without violating her agreement.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Still Life with Crows to be better than the print version?

    Pendergast is an intriguing character and it is fun to listen to how the author spins the story around his unique style.


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

    many and this one is very good. i would listen to anything by Scott.
