I love to read books but due to vision problems it is very hard. I have fond that listening is almost as good as reading them for myself.

    Story

    An earthquake in Masada, Israel, kills hundreds and reveals a tomb buried in the heart of the mountain. A trio of investigators - Sergeant Jordan Stone, a military forensic expert; Father Rhun Korza, a Vatican priest; and Dr. Erin Granger, a brilliant but disillusioned archaeologist - are sent to explore the macabre discovery, a subterranean temple holding the crucified body of a mummified girl. But a brutal attack at the site sets the three on the run, thrusting them into a race to recover what was once preserved in the tomb's sarcophagus: a book rumored to have been written by Christ's own hand....

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Blood Gospel to be better than the print version?

    The print version was great as I can see in my mind the people and the places, but the audio version was well read and the sound was good


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story has intrique and a small amount of romance. The main people seem well developed but there is still more to discover about all of the people. The back ground people will allow for more people to brought to the forefront. The ending was a total shocker


    What three words best describe Christian Baskous’s performance?

    well read and enjoyable

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"

    Would you consider the audio edition of First to Kill to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the print version but I do not think it cold beany better


    What other book might you compare First to Kill to and why?

    This is very much like the Lee Child books


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Mr Hill has a great voice and makes each person seem real. While you can hear things in your mind he makes it so much easier


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

    No big reactions just enjoyment

    Story
    (1301)

    Jack Reacher reunites with the survivors of his old Army investigative team, scrambling to raise the living, bury the dead, and connect the dots in a mystery that is growing darker by the day. In a world of bad luck and trouble, when someone targets Jack Reacher and his team, they'd better be ready for what comes right back at them.

    If you could sum up Bad Luck and Trouble in three words, what would they be?

    We get to know some of the people from Reacher's past. This story gives him more of an outlook as to how the rest of his past team is doing in the "real" world.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I enjoyed getting to know Frances L. Neagley. I look forward to more of her, Dixon and O'Donnell


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

    A few sections were a bit teary but quick


    Any additional comments?

    A must read
