    Story

    I really enjoyed this book -- I was not sure after I read several reviews and they were sort of negative.
    Now Me, I liked it . It is told by a 16 year old boy -- which is part of a lot of the reviews but he is 16 so that is his way of thinking and doing things.

    His uncle was in this story more which I really liked.

    My opinion worth a listen

    Peter watched his new family drive away, certain it was the last time he'd ever see them. But sometimes plans go awry in the best way. Now, the plan is to get back to them. But sometimes plans go awry in the worst way. Sometimes the only plan is to believe it will be all right, even when it's almost impossible to believe.

    Shay Remby arrives in Hollywood with $58 and a handmade knife, searching for her brother, Odin. Odin’s a brilliant hacker but a bit of a loose cannon. He and a group of radical animal-rights activists hit a Singular Corp. research lab in Eugene, Oregon. The raid was a disaster, but Odin escaped with a set of highly encrypted flash drives and a post-surgical dog. When Shay gets a frantic 3 a.m. phone call from Odin - talking about evidence of unspeakable experiments, and a ruthless corporation, and how he must hide - she’s concerned.

    finished this book. it was good - a YA story. it more young people were the main charaters rather than YA -

    I stopped in the middle - thinking I would wait to the next one so I could go straight to the next book. But decided to finish it.

    I enjoyed it worth a read. though I would not call it YA

    Robert McCall is a former covert operations officer for the CIA who tries to atone for past sins by offering, free of charge, his services as a troubleshooter (often literally), a protector, and an investigator. People in need find him through a newspaper ad: "Got a problem? Odds against you? Call the Equalizer.” Aided by a group of sometimes-mysterious contacts (some of whom date back to his spying days), McCall traverses the streets of New York City, visiting justice upon those who prey upon the weak.

    "You can leave the army, but the army doesn’t leave you. Not always. Not completely," notes Jack Reacher - and sure enough, the retired military cop is soon pulled back into service. This time, for the State Department and the CIA. Someone has taken a shot at the president of France in the City of Light. The bullet was American. The distance between the gunman and the target was exceptional. How many snipers can shoot from three-quarters of a mile with total confidence? Very few, but John Kott - an American marksman gone bad - is one of them...

    I am torn -- I want to give this book a 4 star rating -- love Reacher love Lee Child --

    It was good. He said nothing and beat up some bad guys. solved the crime and helped some people.
    but is was based mostly over seas in France and England -- I thought he was traveling the US to see what he could see. also there was no third person talk at all -- I am not use to that. He did all the talking --

    all and all a good read will read the the next one and the next.

    That’s the flummoxed state of Edward Stanton, a 42-year-old with Asperger’s syndrome. His job, his therapist, and his best friends are all gone. Even his nightly ritual of watching Dragnet reruns has short-circuited. But a call from his friend Donna in Idaho, telling him that her son Kyle is in trouble, launches Edward from his rigidly scheduled existence in Billings, Montana, to the open road. He and Kyle, a sweet little boy turned sullen adolescent, debate football, music, and bodily functions (“Why do you pee so much?” Kyle asks).

    Mrs. Sookie Poole of Point Clear, Alabama, has just married off the last of her daughters and is looking forward to relaxing and perhaps traveling with her husband, Earle. The only thing left to contend with is her mother, the formidable Lenore Simmons Krackenberry. Lenore may be a lot of fun for other people, but is, for the most part, an overbearing presence for her daughter. Then one day, quite by accident, Sookie discovers a secret about her mother's past that knocks her for a loop and suddenly calls into question everything she ever thought she knew about herself, her family, and her future.

    The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson, Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

    He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was...something smelled bad - like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies and counting.

    Story

    I have listened to all of Sandford's books -- love them all a few more than others.
    this one I took a star away because of the graphic acts against the kidnapped women


    Very hard to listen .
    I started it and stopped. I finished it because I wanted to read about all the regular characters - Flowers. Del. Letty Weather. Jenkins. Etc.

    the disturbing part with the killer and his victims It was almost more than I could take

    BUT I Love Sandford. And will continue to read his stuff.- Maybe it is just the Davenport books than will be too much -- Flowers is the best
