Love to read and listen to books. I prefer detective stories, but also read some sci fi.

    Private, the world's most renowned investigation firm, has been commissioned to provide security for the 2012 Olympic Games in London. Its agents are the smartest, fastest, and most technologically advanced in the world, and 400 of them have been transferred to London to protect more than 10,000 competitors who represent more than 200 countries. The opening ceremony is hours away when Private investigator and single father of twins, Peter Knight, is called to the scene of a ruthless murder: a high-ranking member of the games' organizing committee has been killed.

    Any additional comments?

    This book was okay and I enjoyed the read as I got further into the book. It seemed to be a little slow starting but picked up after you got into the book. I was surprised to find out who the villian was because I did not know until somewhat towards the end of the book. If you can make it past the beginning, you will enjoy the rest.

    Lita Mendez was a thorn in the LAPD’s side. An aggressive police critic and gang activist, she’d filed countless complaints against the department. So when she’s found dead in her home, Shane and Hitch fear the worst: that there’s a killer in their ranks.Outside the crime scene, Nixon Nash, the charismatic host of a hit reality show called Vigilante TV, has set up shop with his television crew. Nash’s show is dedicated to beating the cops at their own game, solving murders before they can. Now he has the murder of Lita Mendez in his sights....

    What did you love best about Vigilante?

    I liked the pace of the story.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, because you did not know what was going to happen next.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I did not laugh or cry, but it did touch a nerve considering the injustices some people will do to make themselves look better.

    It is 1648, a small village in the Alps: In the thick of a blizzard,a town priest discovers he’s been poisoned. As numbness creeps up his body, he summons the last of his strength and scratches a sign in the frost that will lead the town hangman, his daughter, and the town physician in pursuit of a treasure of the Knights Templar. But the priest’s murderer is already on their trail, and he’s not the only one after the legendary fortune: a dark monk is not far behind,and a band of thieves is roving the countryside, attacking solitary travelers and spreading panic.

    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Dark Monk?

    When the Dr. finds out that the Priest's Sister is really not his sister and he lets her escape.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    I liked it when the hangman's daughter takes care of the man who is trying to acoust her on the boat.

    When the Dr. is trying to save little Clara and he is scared that he may not be able to do anything for her.


    Any additional comments?

    These are very interesting stories and the author takes them from his family past and what he believes could have happened during this time. Great imagination.

    Former Marine helicopter pilot Jack Morgan runs Private, a renowned investigation company with branches around the globe. It is where you go when you need maximum force and maximum discretion.

    Story
    What made the experience of listening to Private the most enjoyable?

    This book kept you wondering what would be next. This is a better Patterson book than some of the other Privates. Patterson could play off of the brother in another book with an adversarial plot and then perhaps a coming together of the brothers, or not. I would like to see more of both brothers though.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    I liked when the brother shared two secrets with the main character. What a twist. Dad was very manipulative to both kids and neither one saw it coming.


    Any additional comments?

    I appreciated the rivalry because as siblings most of us have dealt with that and sometimes even into adulthood. One sibling trying to help the other grown up. Will one actually try to kill the other or will they have a meeting of the minds. Who knows? Come on Mr. Patterson do one more on this plot. Imagine what would happen with a security company and a private investigative service.

    It’s not even a clue. It’s a whisper, a trace, a ghost echo, drifting down through the decades via chance connections so fragile that they would disintegrate in the puff of a breath. But it’s enough to get legendary former Marine sniper Bob Lee Swagger interested in the events of November 22, 1963, and the third bullet that so decisively ended the life of John F. Kennedy and set the stage for one of the most enduring controversies of our time. Swagger begins his slow night stalk through a much-traveled landscape. But he’s asking questions that few have asked before....

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

    No I could have spent my time listening to something better. As much as I am interested in what happend to JFK, this book was not going to answer my questions because it was to boring for me to get to any answers.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    This book was very slow and not very interesting.


    Have you listened to any of Buck Schirner’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I did not care for Buck Schirners performance.


    Was The Third Bullet worth the listening time?

    No.

    The Iranian effort to develop nuclear weapons was the inspiration for this tale of spies, assassination, skullduggery, military action and political intrigue. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Devil's Disciple, and he has a plan. With 12 nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world's Muslims in a holy war against western civilization.

    I did not care for this audiobook. It just was not my cup of tea. I tried to listen to it several times and would find myself daydreaming of thinking of other things. I do not think it is necessarily the writing, but my taste in books is not of this type.


    What could Stephen Coonts have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This book was somewhat borng to me. I would have liked to have been sitting up waiting for the next sentence. Did not find that here.

    Some of the greatest worship songs and hymns were written during times of deep pain. The process of going through trials is not easy, yet when we allow God to work through our pain, He can produce a sweet melody of growth in our lives. This eight-message series gives biblical counsel on the issue of suffering in the lives of believers.

    No, but I really liked this one.


    Any additional comments?

    Understanding that someone elses pain is much worse than mine helps me to see how blessed I am. Though we all have our own level of pain when it comes to being a Christian some are much worse that others and it must be true that God does not give us any more than we can handle because some of the people in the Bible has an excruciating amount of pain and still worshiped God.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    I don't think this one could be saved. Perhaps a re-write.


    What could James Patterson and K.A John have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    This was one of the worst James Patterson books I have ever read. I was very disappointed. I have read most of the Alex Cross series and this book does not even compare to the quality of Patterson's other works.


    Would you be willing to try another one of Steven Pacey’s performances?

    I would probably try another of Steven Pacey's performances, I think that it was the book and storyline that made this a bad experience.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Bloody Valentine?

    I actually would add more scenes and action to this one. It was quite dull to read.


    Any additional comments?

    I would not purchase this book knowing what I know now.
