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.

    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

    A long-buried family secret resurfaces when one of Aloysius Pendergast's most implacable enemies shows up on his doorstep as a murdered corpse. The mystery has all the hallmarks of the perfect murder, save for an enigmatic clue: a piece of turquoise lodged in the stomach of the deceased. The gem leads Pendergast to an abandoned mine on the shore of California's desolate Salton Sea, which in turn propels him on a journey of discovery deep into his family's sinister past.

    Devastated by the discovery that his wife, Helen, was murdered, Special Agent Pendergast must have retribution. But revenge is not simple. As he stalks his wife's betrayers-a chase that takes him from the wild moors of Scotland to the bustling streets of New York City and the darkest bayous of Louisiana - he is also forced to dig further into Helen's past. And he is stunned to learn that Helen may have been a collaborator in her own murder.

    While this was a very good book it left me hanging from the very beginning the narrator while good was not the original narrator of the series therefore it took some adapting on my part looking forward to reading part two of the series in hopes that it will intrigue me more

    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.

    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

    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
