    Six months ago, Lucas Davenport tackled his first case as a statewide troubleshooter, and he thought that one was plenty strange enough. But that was before the Russian got killed. On the shore of Lake Superior, a man named Vladimir Oleshev is found shot dead, three holes in his head and heart, and though nobody knows why he was killed, everybody - the local cops, the FBI, and the Russians themselves - has a theory. And when it turns out he had very high government connections, that's when it hits the fan.

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

    I could not finish listening to this book; I could not get past the narrator's voice to the story. That being said, I plan on reading the book to actually see if the story is good or not.


    What didn’t you like about Richard Ferrone’s performance?

    His voice for at least one of the characters was like nails on a chalkboard to me.

    All four sacred mysteries of the Rosary. The praying of the Rosary is dedicated to the Joyful (sometimes Joyous) Mysteries; the Sorrowful Mysteries; the Glorious Mysteries, and (as suggested by Pope John Paul II) the Luminous Mysteries.

    Alison says: "Excellent"
    "Not what I expected"

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

    I did not feel this book was rewarding. Mr. Martin did not expand on the mysteries to be meditated on, did not include the Fatima prayer, etc.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Eric Roland Martin? Why or why not?

    No.


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

    It was dry, no emotion, no insight into the Rosary. The most dead performance of the Rosary I have heard.

    Story

    On the beautiful planet Pern, colonized for centuries, Land Holders and Craftsmen have traditionally tithed food and supplies to the dragonweyrs to which they are bound. In times past, the mighty telepathic dragons and their riders were the only protection from the dreaded, life-threatening Thread. Now those times may be returning....

    Story
    Would you listen to Dragonflight again? Why?

    I enjoy rereading and relistening - sort of following a TV series after it's final season.


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

    Dick Hill provides a difference in inflection, difference in emphasis that I would not get if I just read the book.


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

    I don't listen to any book all in one sitting. I listen to books when I am driving, cleaning house,etc.
