    Everything starts somewhere. For elite military cop Jack Reacher, that somewhere was Carter Crossing, Mississippi, way back in 1997. A young woman is dead, and solid evidence points to a soldier at a nearby military base. But that soldier has powerful friends in Washington. Reacher is ordered undercover - to find out everything he can, to control the local police, and then to vanish. Reacher is a good soldier. But when he gets to Carter Crossing, he finds layers no one saw coming, and the investigation spins out of control. Local sheriff Elizabeth Deveraux has a thirst for justice - and an appetite for secrets.

    Where does The Affair rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    It's as good as the best and better than many.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Reacher, as always, is my favorite super hero.


    What about Dick Hill???s performance did you like?

    Since I have listened to Dick Hill perform this character through 19 books, I just like everything about his reading. I cannot see anyone else as Reacher.


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

    I tried to do this, but it was too long for that. Anyway, I would have been disappointed if I didn't hae it to look forward to listening to again.


    Any additional comments?

    Yes, I would like to say that whoever chose Tom Cruise to play Reacher, must not have read the books. Reacher is supper tall, blond and blue eyed and very big. Does this author's description at all resemble Tom Cruise? What a colossal mistake. I hope something prevents Cruise from doing this movie. Only a type such as Dolph Lundgren could possibly be Reacher.

    Dressed in Victorian attire, Juliana Anderson gives guests at her cozy New England bed and breakfast a taste of old-fashioned hospitality. Whether she’s cooking up delights in her kitchen or maintaining the rooms in her beautifully decorated inn, Juliana stays busy and content. Until Webster Donovan arrives - tall, rugged, and sexy beyond belief. The lean, dark-haired author has a bad case of writer’s block and he’s planned a six-week stay to cure it.

    If you could sum up Future Perfect in three words, what would they be?

    Nice easy listening


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Webster...he was strong, sensitive and although he could get angry he was quick to forgive.


    What about Patrick Lawlor???s performance did you like?

    I thought he did a very good job. I always knew who was speaking.


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

    I actually listened in two sittings.

    Guy Carson is a brilliant scientist at GeneDyne, one of the world's foremost biochemical companies. When he is transferred to Mount Dragon, GeneDyne's high-security genetic engineering lab, his good fortune seems too good to be true.

    Carson soon finds that it is. He learns that GeneDyne geneticists are tinkering with a common virus with an eye on the enormous profit to be had from a cure for the flu. Their cure involves permanently altering DNA in humans. What's more, Mount Dragon harbors another secret that puts the world at horrifying risk.

    Kathy says: "Great grab-you-in-plot!"
    "Boring story and hard to listen to narration..."
    Overall

    The story was boring and predictable but the narration was worse. I found myself listening with one hand constantly adjusting the volume, sometimes it was too loud and other times I could barely make out what was being said. It would have been better if, instead of trying to sound as if they were in protective suits, the narrator just spoke normally.

    Highflying army career women Sergeant Amy Callan and Lieutenant Caroline Cook are both victims of sexual harassment by their superiors. And now they're both dead. FBI psychological profilers start the hunt for a serial murderer; a smart guy with a score to settle, a loner, an army man, a ruthless vigilante known to them both.

    Tim says: "Reacher is great. The Reader is not."
    "This is a reprint of a book published in 2000."
    Overall

    Half-way through this audio, it began to sound familiar. I checked through my Lee Child audios and found "Running Blind" published in 2000 narrated by Dick Hill. It is the earlier version of "The Visitor." As usual, Jack Reacher proves that he is smarter than any police unit including the FBI. And they are the ones who, for all intents and purposes, kidnaps him, tries to coerce him into helping them solve some murders, then stubbornly refuses to listen to his theories. The way Reacher manages to plot to turn matters around so he can escape the FBI is unique and although far-fetched, it works. It's just great fun to listen as Reacher out-smarts everyone who initially tries to push him around.
