    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    What made the experience of listening to The Panther the most enjoyable?

    The return of John and Kate, Scott brings John Corey to life with his humor and wise quips. There is a distinct humor that comes through Nelson's words and Scott's delivery.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    You know it is John! To me Kate is the next because she seems to be the calm and thinking part of the team. It was important for her to act just the way she did in their culture knowing to wrap herself but not being happy with it. Perfect portrayal of a western woman in eastern culture.


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

    As I have said before, Scott Brick is the voice of John Corey, you can hear the humor that Nelson is trying to convey with Corey. I like the fact that you always hear about what John thinks about men near his wife. Scott makes it funny when he talks about Brenner dancing with Kate.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes you could .... well I could not stop listening to the story. I listen while I work my swing shift, and I was listening to the story for two more hours after midnight..... I was not ready to go to bed till I had to leave the edge of my seat.


    Any additional comments?

    Thank you Nelson DeMille, and thank you Scott Brick to me you will be the voice of Corey, no matter what!

    I can tell you that I will be listening to this book again gladly in about three months, its that good where I could not get enough of this good stuff.

    Ensign Andrew Dahl has just been assigned to the Universal Union Capital Ship Intrepid, flagship of the Universal Union since the year 2456. Life couldn’t be better…until Andrew begins to pick up on the facts that (1) every Away Mission involves some kind of lethal confrontation with alien forces; (2) the ship’s captain, its chief science officer, and the handsome Lieutenant Kerensky always survive these confrontations; and (3) at least one low-ranked crew member is, sadly, always killed.

    Ken says: "It's all about the codas"
    "Good tale, but the Narration could use work."

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

    I prefer Audiobooks when I can get them, because most narrators do different voices.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    There were good characters throughout the book, and because of the writing all were equally interesting to me.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Wil Wheaton’s performances?

    I do not know, I expected an actor to read in different voices. All of Will's characters sounded alike, he was just reading the novel, not acting it. I read a review (false as to turns out) that said Will's Captain sounded like a Shatner styled character. I was more than disappointed to find this was not the case. I would have to listen to a sample of another Wheaton performance before purchasing another.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Volunteer for Nothing on the Intrepid!


    Any additional comments?

    I was every disappointed in the performance of Will Wheaton, I expected the characters to sound different, he was just reading the book. This made it more difficult to follow because the Author has characters who's names sound alike. When the narrator stated that one person with the D last name, and the other person has a D last name. The way its read it make you wonder just who is speaking in a given section of the story.

    Sorry Will, I like most of the other things you do, this was not one of them.

    Would you consider the audio edition of BRAINRUSH, a Thriller to be better than the print version?

    I very much enjoyed the audio version.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The premise that a shock to the brain could unlock hidden talents.


    What does R. C. Bray bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    As with most talented actors, you get the impression of the charachers feelings, when the passage is presented in a dramitic fashion.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Oh yes, this was a very good book and if I could have heard it all at once .... but I did listen day after day with enthusiasm.


    Any additional comments?

    I think I am ready for the second installment but.... if it is as good as I expect I may wait for the third book and then have a real BRAIN Rush!
