    Former Secret Service agents turned private investigators Sean King and Michelle Maxwell have seen their lives splinter around them. Michelle lies unconscious in a hospital bed after a night of suicidal violence. And Sean is forced to take on a thankless investigation into the murder of a scientist just inside the CIA's razor-wire fence near Williamsburg, Virginia. But they will need to team up again to stop a conspiracy of traitors operating in the shadow of the White House itself.

    Overall

    Sorry but this Baldacci wasn't worth the time. I got through the third disc and had to quit. The reading was mediocre, the plot and characters seemed contrived and uninteresting. I haven't quit a book in the middle in years and I listen an hour+ every day while driving. I actually began to fall asleep. I hope he improves, I've enjoyed others from Baldacci thay's why I purchased this one.

  • Bob Dylan in America

    This book follows Dylan as he continues to develop a body of musical and literary work unique in our cultural history. Wilentz’s approach places Dylan’s music in the context of its time, including the early influences of Popular Front ideology and Beat aesthetics, and offers a larger critical appreciation of Dylan as both a song­writer and performer down to the present. Wilentz has had unprecedented access to studio tapes, recording notes, rare photographs, and other materials, all of which allow him to tell Dylan’s story.

    RSH says: "Another side of Bob Dylan"
    "Don't expect much"
    Overall

    I don't know what I was expecting, but this book didn't provide it. It "reads" like a thesis read by the writer (he is an Ivy League professer after all) A few interesting tidbits floating in a sea of "facts." The writer states his opinions like facts even though there is no evidence that he ever met Dylan. His "facts" are either his pretentious opinion or somebody else's. Dylan may be this obtuse, but it seems that the writer is mainly trying to show-off his "knowledge." I could never get engaged as there is really no story.

    In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.

    Linda says: "It sure reads like a Ludlum book!"
    "Really bad"
    Overall

    Too bad that the stars don't go negative.
    The plot was dumb, the situations absurd. It has been said that the difference between reality and fiction is that fiction has to make sense. In this case it isn't fiction but cartoon. In cartoons, the characters can do anything, like fall from a jet cargo plane just before take-off(the speed would be over 120mph)onto the tarmac, then the next thing you know, the character appears, completely unhurt in another scene.

    His adversary is watching him every step of the way, yet he has time to fashion a net of vines and trap the hapless antagonist - who, of course, gets away quickly and easily.

    The story contains one silly episode after another. I only got to disc 6 and got that far only because it was the only book I brought on the trip. I can't bring myself to waste time finishing it.
