    Already cited on the floor of Congress and discussed in the corridors of the Pentagon as a book all Americans should read, One Second After is the story of a war scenario that could become all too terrifyingly real. Based upon a real weapon - the Electro Magnetic Pulse (EMP) - which may already be in the hands of our enemies, it is a truly realistic look at the awesome power of a weapon that can destroy the entire United States.

    Andy Spooner says: "A page-turner, no doubt, but..."
    "It's Just So-So"
    Overall

    Clearly, the author's politics gets in the way of the story. And that's too bad. As one of the characters said, "I feel like I'm in a bad movie." The dialogue is trite at times and pedantic.

    A troubled young woman breezes into Detective Robicheaux's hometown of New Iberia, Louisiana. She happens to be the daughter of his friend: a friend he witnessed gunned down in a bank robbery, a tragedy that forever changed Robicheaux's life.

    Burke must be the best American author of our day! His novels continue to amaze me and keep me engrossed. I particularly enjoy the Dave Robicheaux novels but almost anything he pens is good to me.

    Fatima, Portugal, 1917: The Virgin Mary appears to three peasant children, sharing with them three secrets, two of which are soon revealed to the world. The third secret is sealed away in the Vatican, read only by popes, and not disclosed until the year 2000. When revealed, its quizzical tone and anticlimactic nature leave many faithful wondering if the Church has truly unveiled all of the Virgin Mary's words, or if a message far more important has been left in the shadows.

    Jim says: "What a waste!!"
    "Good stuff"
    Overall

    This is good. Period. Worth buying and it will keep your attention. As usual Berry spins a pretty good yarn. I enjoyed it all the way through.

    The organized criminal gangs of the former Soviet Union are bound by what they call the thieves' code. The first rule is this: A thief must forsake his mother, father, brothers, and sisters. He must have no family - no wife, no children - because only other criminals are his family. If any of the rules are broken, it is punishable by death.

    Mystery Addict says: "Not Elvis but a good listen"
    "Fast paced"
    Overall

    Great story on audio! Well conceived plot without divergences. Worth the moolah.

    Only three years old, little Melanie was kidnapped by her father. Six years later, police found her wandering the L.A. streets, her eyes blank. What had become of her in all that lost time...and what secret did she dare not even whisper?

    Homer says: "Troubling"
    "Classic Koontz"
    Overall

    A good one and at times I did not want to stop listening in order to do something else I had to do.

    Story

    Jamie Fraser knows from his time-traveling wife Claire that, no matter how unlikely it seems, America will win the Revolutionary War. But that truth offers little solace, since Jamie realizes he might find himself pointing a weapon directly at his own son - a young officer in the British army. And Jamie isn't the only one with a tormented soul - for Claire may know who wins the conflict, but she certainly doesn't know whether or not her beloved Jamie survives.

    Charles says: "Read all of Gabaldon's stuff before this one"
    "Awful!"
    Overall

    Save your money. Pass on this one. It is not up to her earlier standards.

    This ambitious, electrifying work traces the harrowing journey of the famed Sarajevo Haggadah, a beautifully illuminated Hebrew manuscript created in 15th-century Spain.

    When it falls to Hanna Heath, an Australian rare-book expert, to conserve this priceless work, the series of tiny artifacts she discovers in its ancient binding - an insect wing fragment, wine stains, salt crystals, a white hair - only begin to unlock its deep mysteries.

    Yvette says: "Amazing, fabulous, wonderful!!!"
    "Less than I expected"
    Overall

    The premise seemed promising to me. But as a man, I thought the use of various accent motifs was way over done. This whole yarn left me wishing it would end already. The device of moving back and forth through history is not new and I guess it is the only thing that makes this story work.
