    Tourist season is swinging into high gear in Miami. So are the activities of a bizarre terrorist group determined to keep the hapless "snowbirds" away. Armed with bombs, weed, and jumbled credos, they move toward their grand target, the Orange Bowl Parade, with plans to bring Miami and its tourist trade to a halt.

    "strange but interesting"
    Overall

    The entire premise is unplausable but curiously fasinating. I attempted to listen to it several times before I was hooked. I had to get beyond the first hour and then became more curious. By the third hour I wanted to know where it was going. It had tedious moments and areas of irrelevancy but overall it was amusing and entertaining.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Robert B. Wales says: "Same great Clancey - Great narration"
    "Good Story, Awesome Narration"
    Overall

    I have been a fan of Tom Clancy for years. I was dubious of the narrator being Lou Diamond Phillips but was quickly surprised by the range of voices and accents. Extremely well done. The book was a happy encounter with many of my old favorite characters. All in all an extremely enjoyable experience.

    In a scrap heap within an abandoned factory, the greatest invention in history lies dormant and unused. By what fatal error of judgment has its value gone unrecognized, its brilliant inventor punished rather than rewarded for his efforts? In defense of those greatest of human qualities that have made civilization possible, one man sets out to show what would happen to the world if all the heroes of innovation and industry went on strike.

    Mica says: "Hurt version decidedly superior"
    "Captivating"
    Overall

    I thought I would struggle listening to this long book but was disappointed when I finished it so fast. I was captivated and forced to recognize how much of our society depends on self starters to overcome adversity. It is simple economic principles at work everyday and this story helps us not to take them for grant it.

    Good solid suspense. I felt alot for the characters. Compelling from start to finish. I loved Anna Fields reading of the book.

    Peter Novak, one of the world's greatest men, has been kidnapped! Running out of time and hope, Novak's people turn to Paul Janson, legendary covert operative and assassin. Janson is retired, and nothing could lure him back - nothing except Peter Novak, who once saved Janson's life. "Ludlum's best since The Bourne Identity," raves Kirkus Reviews.

    Grady says: "Captivated me from the beginning"
    "Compelling"
    Overall

    I found listening to this 3 part unabridged book very short. It kept me on the edge of my seat in suspense wanting to know what happened next. For such a long book, it seemed really short.
