    Apache hitman "Crow" Cromartie's mission is simple: find young Amber Francisco and bring her back to her father, Louis, in Florida. It should be an easy payday for a pro like Crow, but there are complications. Amber, now living in squalor with her mother, Fiona, is mixed up with members of a Latino gang. And when Louis orders Crow to kill Fiona before heading back with Amber, he can't follow through.

    Ross says: "Jesse and Crow - the next Spenser and Hawk?"

    Overall

    Good story, good reader but way too many "He Saids and She Saids" I found it very distracting.

    With the closing of the Harlan County, Kentucky coalmines, marijuana has become the biggest cash crop in the state. A hundred pounds of it can gross three-hundred thousand dollars, but that’s chump change compared to the quarter million a human body can get you - especially when it’s sold off piece-by-piece. So when Dickie and Coover Crowe, dope-dealing brothers known for sampling their own supply, decide to branch out into the body business, it’s up to U.S. Marshal Raylan Givens to stop them.

    Roy says: "Justified"
    "Another Elmore Leonard Winner!"

    What does Brian D'Arcy James bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Good Story Teller


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

    Not Really but it was easy to get back to.

  • No One Would Listen: A True Financial Thriller

    Story
    (736)

    No One Would Listen is the exclusive story of the Harry Markopolos-lead investigation into Bernie Madoff and his $65 billion Ponzi scheme. While a lot has been written about Madoff's scam, few actually know how Markopolos and his team - affectionately called "the Fox Hounds" by Markopolos himself - uncovered what Madoff was doing years before this financial disaster reached its pinnacle. Unfortunately, no one listened, until the damage of the world's largest financial fraud ever was irreversible.

    Brendan says: "Shocking, terrific"
    "Ain't I Wonderful"
    Overall

    Listening to this was a waste of time and money.In my opinion, Mr Markopolis does repeatedly is say "Ain't I Wonderful".
