    Four US Navy SEALS departed one clear night in early July, 2005 for the mountainous Afghanistan-Pakistan border for a reconnaissance mission. Their task was to document the activity of an al Qaeda leader rumored to have a small army in a Taliban stronghold. Five days later, only one of those Navy SEALS made it out alive. This is the story of the only survivor of Operation Redwing, SEAL team leader Marcus Luttrell, and the extraordinary firefight that led to the largest loss of life in American Navy SEAL history.

    Other than her real name - Mary-Magdalene Feigenbaum - fifteen-year-old Maggie’s problems seem ordinary. She has tiffs with her too-critical mother, a crush on her cute psychologist, and worries that her only friend - fellow outcast Abigail - is morphing into a popular girl, leaving her behind. But Maggie has a few not-so-ordinary problems. A voice in her head is telling her to kill. And not just anyone. Each time the target is a person who has done something terrible to someone Maggie cares for. You know what you have to do, the voice commands.

    Story
    What would have made You Know What You Have to Do better?

    It would have been better if there were more people that the lead character had to "kill." The story starts off so well, and then seems to just fall flat. Lacks in action. Then, what action there is, the main character's personal involvement with another character/date, it has nothing to do with the main point of the story.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Bonnie Shimko again?

    Maybe


    What aspect of Cristina Panfilio’s performance would you have changed?

    Seems like she wasn't too able to do male voices.


    What character would you cut from You Know What You Have to Do?

    Abbigail. Her involvement in the book, again, adds nothing to the main story of the book...a young girl who hears a voice telling her to kill people that hurt others.


    Any additional comments?

    Initially this books seems to be on a much milder line of Dexter. However, as the book progresses, the action seems to die down.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    In a locked Honolulu office building, three men are found dead with no sign of struggle except for the ultrafine, razor-sharp cuts covering their bodies. The only clue left behind is a tiny bladed robot, nearly invisible to the human eye. In the lush forests of Oahu, groundbreaking technology has ushered in a revolutionary era of biological prospecting. Trillions of microorganisms, tens of thousands of bacteria species, are being discovered; they are feeding a search for priceless drugs and applications on a scale beyond anything previously imagined.

    Less detail in some of the scientific minutia!! Way too much time spent talking in scientific terms, and not enough time spent telling the story.

    Included some more action/excitement and less technical stuff

    Great portraying of different characters.

    Charlene Rosalind Carter Grant believes that she will be murdered in four days. And she wants Boston’s top detective to handle her death investigation. It will be up close and personal. No evidence of forced entry, no sign of struggle. Charlie tells a chilling story: Each year at 8:00 p.m. on January 21, a woman has died. The victims have been childhood best friends from a small town in New Hampshire; the motive remains unknown. Now only one friend, Charlie, remains to count down her final hours.

    What disappointed you about Catch Me?

    This book had little character development, and the narrator wasn't much better. Would request a refund if possible.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Something about serial killer(s)


    Who would you have cast as narrator instead of Kirsten Potter?

    The same person who read one of the Jack Reacher novels I just listened to.


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    Disappointment
