    Two weeks before Christmas, Dr. Diana Duprey is found floating face-up in a small lap pool in her back yard. A medical doctor with an abortion practice, and a national figure who inspired passion and ignited tempers, she had been the target of violent threats by right-to-life activists. Her husband, Frank Thomson, a lawyer in the district attorney's office, fought bitterly with her on the morning of her murder. To reveal the nature of their argument would cost him his career, and more.

    Overall

    As a mystery this book was way too predictable! This may satisfy you if you like romance with a murder and some lame detecting by the local police.
    The narrator's voice was a bit annoying ? good for commercial voice overs with a direct message, but several characters seemed like a real stretch.

    Despite the dismal Broadway season, Gunplay continues to draw crowds. A gangland spectacle, it's packed to the gills with action, explosions, and gunfire. In fact, Gunplay is so loud that no one notices the killing of Monte Field. In a sold-out theater, Field is found dead partway through the second act, surrounded by empty seats. The police hold the crowd and call for the one man who can untangle this daring murder: Inspector Richard Queen.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The cousins who wrote as Ellery Queen waste a lot of words and your time with this. Definitely not as concise as Agatha Christie or Sir Arthur C. Doyle, they drag the listener through a lot that adds nothing to the plot. It's a bit of a snoozer.


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

    Pretty good narration.

    Two armed men board a 727 that has been all but forgotten at an airfield in Angola. Hijacking the jet, they then slit the throat of the lone crew and fly to parts unknown. The consternation is immediate, as the CIA, FBI, and other agencies race to find out what happened, in the process elbowing one another in the sides a little too vigorously. Fed up, the president of the United States turns to an outside investigator to determine the truth.

    What did you like best about By Order of the President? What did you like least?

    It's a want-to-be Tom Clancy novel. The story is okay, but the author seems a little homophobic. This surprised me since I've read over a hundred books of this genre and this is the first time it was so blatant. I give it an overall C+ / B-

    Would you try another book from Ken Follett and/or Eric Lincoln?

    I like Follett and he didn't disappoint, although it's not his best book. The main narrator was good, but the female was terrible and even worse when she did the voice of the child. It was completely jarring when she first appeared—Audible gave no notice that there are multiple performers here and I think it's a bit of a dupe by them.

    Camp David, USA. A birthday party turns into a nightmare when a child is snatched after the celebrations. The First Lady enlists the services of Sean King and Michelle Maxwell to bring the child home safely. But she and King share a past. Years ago he saved her then senator husband from political disaster. And this may not be all that passed between them. With Michelle still battling her own demons, the two are pushed to the limit, with forces aligned on all sides against them.

    jerry says: "Outstanding as always"
    "Bad Sound Effects"
    Overall

    The only thing that made the slow, drone of the narrator tolerable, were the cheesy sound effects distracting from dramatic moments. This made radio dramas of the 1940s sound brilliant. *Sigh* The story was a bit predictable, too. I'd give this two and a half stars if I could.

    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Lame ending"
    Overall

    This is the first DeMille novel that was disapointment. The story was good, as was the narration, but it was as if DeMille had written himself into a corner. If you value your time, you'll want to listen to the abridged version-or skip this one.
