  • Innocent

    • UNABRIDGED (14 hrs and 12 mins)

    The sequel to the genre-defining, landmark best seller Presumed Innocent, Innocent continues the story of Rusty Sabich and Tommy Molto who are, once again, 20 years later, pitted against each other in a riveting psychological match after the mysterious death of Rusty's wife.

    Suzn F says: "Terrific Book"
    "Rusty's life reflections touched me"
    Overall

    Great courtroom drama but really a wonderful sub-story about an accomplished man who in the Autumn of his years reflects on the lasting love and deep relationship never found. This connects to many of our own lives... successful careers, children, but marriages turned into utilitarian, though basically comfortable relationships held together for the sake of many things, and the sad realization that we are running out of runway to take off and soar as we could as our younger selves. As Thoreau wrote, "The mass of men lead lives of quiet desperation".

    Scott Hermann’s narration was just perfect, dissenters notwithstanding. Why? Because I feel Mr. Hermann correctly captured Rusty’s dark but, at times, hopeful outlook and demeanor at the age of a 60 year old (which is where I am) after a lifetime of the subdued parallel life he lived in the recent years of his married life with Barbara.

    Daniel Silva delivers another spectacular thriller starring Gabriel Allon, The English Girl. When a beautiful young British woman vanishes on the island of Corsica, a prime minister’s career is threatened with destruction. Allon, the wayward son of Israeli intelligence, is thrust into a game of shadows where nothing is what it seems...and where the only thing more dangerous than his enemies might be the truth.…

    Judith says: "Gabriel's story takes huge strides"
    "Silva keeps getting better."

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

    George Guidall is truly masterful in this book. His expressed emotion, dialect and pace of script were perfect. He breathed believable life into each of the characters.

  • Eye of the Needle

    Story

    One enemy spy knows the secret of the Allies' greatest deception, a brilliant aristocrat and ruthless assassin - code name: "The Needle" - who holds the key to the ultimate Nazi victory.

    Scott says: "A Classic WWII Spy Thriller"
    "Too much character development"
    Overall

    Listened for an hour and lost patience while Follett developed the characters to the nth degree before getting the main plot, i.e., the interesting part. Have read other Folletts and should have known. Replaced it with a DeMille book.

  • The Lion

    Story

    Detective John Corey now faces his toughest assignment yet: the pursuit and capture of the world's most dangerous terrorist -- a young Arab known as "The Lion" who has baffled a federal task force and shows no sign of stopping in his quest for revenge against the American pilots who bombed Libya and killed his family.

    Patricia says: "Totally predictable"
    "Brick's Reading"
    Overall

    Like all of DeMille's books the story itself is well written. I have listened to 4 books read by Scott Brick and have enjoyed his reading very much every time. But this time he has injected too much drama to John Corey's character as well as most of the other characters' voices... slow deliberate dramatic delivery almost like he's reading to a listener whose first language is not English, plus a thicker tough guy New York cop accent for John Corey than in The Lion's Game and that starts to get old early in the book. If it wasn't for DeMille's story line I would have stopped listening.
