    January 1937. Jack Miller has just about run out of options. His shoes have worn through, he can't afford to heat his rented room in Tooting, and he longs to use his training as an specialist wireless operator instead of working in his dead-end job. When he is given the chance to join an arctic expedition, as communications expert, by a group of elite Oxbridge graduates, he brushes off his apprehensions and convinces himself to join them.

    When you have to kill the same terrorist twice in one week there’s either something wrong with your world or something wrong with your skills - and there’s nothing wrong with Joe Ledger’s skills. And that’s both a good and a bad thing. It’s good because he’s a Baltimore detective who has just been secretly recruited by the government to lead a new task force created to deal with the problems that Homeland Security can’t handle....

    Kim Venatries says: "Yes! It IS that good. Five stars and more."
    "Good book by not Day by Day..."

    Would you listen to Patient Zero again? Why?

    Yes... a good bunch of characters and an interesting story.


    What was your reaction to the ending? (No spoilers please!)

    Very cool ending and unexpected.


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

    A+ narrator. He really get's you feeling like you're right behind him in some of those corridors.


    Any additional comments?

    Good Zombie book about trouble before the world ends. If you want a great book about after the world ends try Day by Day!

    Pressed into service when World War II breaks out in the Pacific, the USS Walker---a Great-War vintage "four-stacker" destroyer---finds itself in full retreat from pursuit by Japanese battleships. Its captain, Lieutenant Commander Matthew Patrick Reddy, knows that he and his crew are in dire straits. In desperation, he heads Walker into a squall, hoping it will give them cover---and emerges somewhere else.

    Lore says: "It just never grabbed me."
    "It got boring and unbelievable very quickly."

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    If the book was just about the trials and tribulations of a destroyer crew during world war 2.


    Has Into the Storm turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Maybe... I'll shy away from historical fantasy in the future


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    The performance was good.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    The Japanese fleet hunting the American fleet was very exciting.

    It is January 1944 - and as Allied troops prepare for D day, Nazi scientists develop a toxic nerve gas that will repel and wipe out any invasion force. To salvage the planned assault, two vastly different but equally determined men are sent to infiltrate the secret concentration camp where the poison gas is being perfected on human subjects. Their only objective: destroy all traces of the gas and the men who created it - no matter how many lives may be lost...including their own.

    Jim "The Impatient" says: "They Might Be Scum, But they were German Scum"
    "Great Book!"
