    Husband-and-wife team Sam and Remi Fargo are intrigued when an archaeologist friend requests their help excavating a top secret historical site. What they find will set them on a hunt for a prize greater than they could ever imagine. The clues point to the hidden tomb of Attila the Hun, the High King who was reportedly buried with a vast fortune of gold and jewels and plunder....a bounty that has never been found. As they follow the trail, the Fargos will find themselves pitted against a thieving group of treasure hunters.

    The dazzling new novel in the #1 New York Times bestselling series from the grand master of adventure. It is called zero point energy - a state of energy contained in all matter everywhere, and thus all but unlimited. Nobody has ever found a way to tap into it, however - until one scientist discovers a way. The problem is, his machines also cause great earthquakes. If Kurt Austin and Joe Zavala and the rest of the NUMA team aren't able to find and destroy them, and soon, the world will be on the threshold of a new era of earth tremors and unchecked volcanism.

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

    The zero energy premise is interesting, but the story was really predictable. Still a satisfying listen.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Scott Brick does great with all the characters.

    Justin and Libby Denbe have the kind of life you’d find in the pages of a glossy magazine: A beautiful 14-year-old daughter. A gorgeous brownstone on a tree-lined street in Boston’s Back Bay neighborhood. A great marriage, admired by all. A perfect life. When investigator Tessa Leone arrives at the crime scene in the foyer of the Denbes’ home, she finds scuff marks on the floor and a million tiny pieces of bright green Taser confetti. The family appears to have been abducted.

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

    The story is great...lots of twists, and LOTS of action. The narrator and the story together made me feel as if I was actually part of the story. Emotional swings along the way left me tired and spent at the end. Whew! what a ride!


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

    The mother-daughter relationships...both Tessa and Libby...were really great and well written....lots of emotion

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    Russka is the story of four families who are divided by ethnicity but united in shaping the destiny of Russia. From a single riverside village situated at one of the country’s geographic crossroads, Russia’s Slav peasant origins are influenced by the Greco-Iranian, Khazar, Jewish, and Mongol invasions. Unified by this one place, the many cultures blend to form a rich and varied tapestry. Rutherfurd’s grand saga is as multifaceted as Russia itself.

    I would listen again. All the details and all the time covered is worth hearing again.


    Any additional comments?

    As with the other Rutherford books, this fantastic weaving of history and fiction makes listening a joy and learning effortless.

    It is 1780, and 17-year-old Alan Lewrie is a brash, rebellious young libertine. So much so that his callous father believes a bit of naval discipline will turn the boy around. Fresh aboard the tall-masted Ariadne, Midshipman Lewrie heads for the war-torn Americas, finding - rather unexpectedly - that he is a born sailor, equally at home with the randy pleasures of the port and the raging battles on the high seas. But in a hail of cannonballs comes a bawdy surprise.

    If you could sum up The King's Coat in three words, what would they be?

    FUN FUN FUN


    What other book might you compare The King's Coat to and why?

    This series is ALOT like the Jack Aubrey series...but I enjoy Alan Lewrie, and his adventures, more that Aubrey. I would expect anyone familiar with sailing would appreciate the accuracy...but it can certainly be enjoyed by anyone. The series continues to be a joy to listen to :)

    Would you listen to Killing Floor again? Why?

    It was a great book, but now that I know all the twists, and how it comes out in the end, i probably wouldn't listen again. I will be listening to more Jack Reacher novels though


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

    It was difficult to stop listening.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    When two of his American employees were held hostage in a heavily guarded prison fortress in Iran, one man took matters into his own hands: American businessman H. Ross Perot. His team consisted of a group of volunteers from the executive ranks of his corporation, hand-picked and trained by a retired Green Beret officer. To free the imprisoned Americans, they would face incalculable odds on a mission that only true heroes would have dared.

    The ancient order of the Knights Templar possessed untold wealth and absolute power over kings and popes until the Inquisition, when they were wiped from the face of the earth, their hidden riches lost. But now two forces vying for the treasure have learned that it is not at all what they thought it was, and its true nature could change the modern world.

    Jane says: "Overall, a good read"
    "disappointed again..."
    Overall

    I thought I would try another Steve Berry book and try to give him the benefit of the doubt. I like his characters and the stories are fun...until the end. This is the second book by him that I am TERRIBLY disappointed in the end. Why would the characters go to all of the time and trouble of the adventure of the story, only to supress/hide all they find in the end?! grrr!
