    Adam Chase has spent the last five years in New York City trying to erase his worst memories and the scorn and abandonment of his family. Then a phone call from his best friend awakens in him a torrent of emotion and pain. Having left North Carolina and its red soil for good, he never thought returning would be easy - and being remembered as a murderer doesn't help much.

    "Very disappointing"
    Overall

    Having just finished the Jeffery Archer novel, Prisoner of Birth, I was ill prepared for the poor quality of this audiobook. A Scot by nature, I always finish my audiobooks, but after 40 minutes I had to call it quits. Am unclear why it was so highly recommended. It seemed very sophomoric.

    A secret U.S. military dig has uncovered ancient ruins two miles beneath the ice of Antarctica and activated the ultimate weapon. Now rogue American archaeologist Conrad Yeats and beautiful Vatican linguist Serena Serghetti must team up to unlock the secret origins of human civilization before a global cataclysm ends it.

    Autumn says: "Stargate+Da Vinci Cod= Raising Atlantis"
    "What a Disappointment"
    Overall

    I selected this book based on the reviews above by Cussler, DeMille and the Chicago Tribune AND because Scott Brick was the narrator. Today after an hour into part II, I had to put it down I was so irritated. Rather than "clean, no-nonsense writing," I found it simplistic and unbelieveable even as a fantasy. To its credit, it offered an interesting combination of facts and visual images, so it could become a (heavily edited)action movie.

  • Jolie Blon's Bounce

    Return to James Lee Burke's "timeless, parallel universe" with detective Dave Robicheaux, as he investigates the murders of two women, tries to prove one man's innocence, and faces an enemy unlike any he has ever known. Gothic, dense, brutal, touching, and always compelling, Jolie Blon's Bounce is classic storytelling from a writer who has been dubbed "the Faulkner of crime fiction."

    JD. says: "Sorry I was wrong"
    "Vigorously disagree with prior reviewer"
    Overall

    Boy I relished the times when I could sneak away from my activities of daily living to listen to this book. The ambling sequencing of visual vignettes and the narrator's pace created a southern atmosphere which rang true and intentional. I was disappointed to learn that there is a different narrator on Burke's other books...though I say that not having heard the other narrator. Just thought he was quite adept at creating believeable vocal characterizations.
