    In May 1996 the media scrambled to document the gripping story of 16-year-old Mark Pfetzer's expedition to Mount Everest. Not only was he the youngest climber ever to attempt the summit, he also witnessed the tragedy documented in Jon Krakauer's Into Thin Air, in which eight climbers perished in a sudden storm. Within Reach is Mark's extraordinary account of this experience and of his triumphs over several other challenging peaks

    New Year's Day, 1990. The Berlin Wall is coming down. The world is changing. And in a North Carolina "hot-sheets" motel, a two-star general is found dead. His briefcase is missing. Nobody knows what was in it. Within minutes Jack Reacher has his orders: Control the situation. But this situation can't be controlled.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    I did not like this book, but it may be OK for those who don't know what a French Canadian and First Nations accent sounds like.


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

    Expected.


    What didn’t you like about Steve Scherf and Maggie Scherf ’s performance?

    Accents did not sound right. Sounded to much like they were reading.


    Any additional comments?

    The plot was weak and the narration poor.

    Spencer Quinn’s quirky, best-selling tales from the four-legged perspective of K-9 school dropout Chet are unlike anything else in the mystery genre. In this third adventure, Chet once again teams with his two-legged detective partner Bernie Little to sniff out the clues in a perplexing case.

    Sally says: "Good listen. Again."
    "Funny and refreshing."
