    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "A fantastic purchase"
    Overall

    Scott Brick brings John Corey to life and is a perfect narator for this book. I waited a long time for this book to be released and am not disappointed. It will have you laughing out loud as you listen.

    Its a must get!!

And when Rigg discovers that he has the power not only to see the past, but also to change it, his future suddenly becomes anything but certain.

    This books as fantastic. I would suggest you read this right after the previous book as it does not include any intro or back story before it starts off. It gets right into the actions.

    It took me some time to remember what the original plat was since it had been some time since I read the previous book.

    The story is good and moves along very quickly. I did find the ending a little odd and abrupt. There will definately be another in this series.

    Naration was fantastic and the performers from the previous book returned.

    Once presided over by a flamboyant Hollywood mogul during the Roaring ’20s, the magnificent West Coast property known as Roseland is now home to a reclusive billionaire financier and his faithful servants. And, for the moment, it’s also a port in the storm for Odd Thomas and his traveling companion, the inscrutably charming Annamaria. In the wake of Odd’s most recent clash with lethal adversaries, the opulent manor’s comforts should be welcome. But there’s far more to Roseland than meets even the extraordinary eye of Odd, who soon suspects it may be more hell than haven.

    Would you listen to Odd Apocalypse again? Why?

    Love the series, would listen to just about anything with Odd Thomas in it.


    What does David Aaron Baker bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is the voice of Odd Thomas. Without him the book would not be the same.


    Any additional comments?

    Given Odd Thomas' abilities you think the book would play more towards them. I believe it fell off track in that regards.

    For months, Mitch Rapp has been steadily working his way through a list of men, bullet by bullet. With each kill, the tangled network of monsters responsible for the slaughter of 270 civilians becomes increasingly clear. He is given his next target: a plump Libyan diplomat who is prone to drink and is currently in Paris without a single bodyguard. Rapp finds him completely unprotected and asleep in his bed. With confidence in his well-honed skills and conviction of the man’s guilt, he easily sends a bullet into the man’s skull. But in the split second it takes the bullet to leave the silenced pistol, everything changes.

    Jack Reacher books.

    Even though this book takes place in the past its nice to see where Mich comes from.

    The naration was fantasic as well. I love it when they have the same person narate an entire series.

This story within a story within a story finds Roland Deschain, Mid-World’s last gunslinger, in his early days during the guilt-ridden year following his mother’s death. Sent by his father to investigate evidence of a murderous shape-shifter, a "skin-man", Roland takes charge of Bill Streeter, a brave but terrified boy who is the sole surviving witness to the beast’s most recent slaughter.

    Although the book starts off with Roland as he is in the Dark Tower Series it moves to when he was a young kid.

    If the book had remained with Roland as an older gentleman I would have had to agree that Stephen King as a narrator would have been terrible. HOWEVER, Stephen King does a great job as Roland as a younger man. Do not believe all the bad comments about the narration as its not as bad as they say.

    The story was good, but it only has a faint relation to the Dark Tower Series. Its actually a story within a story within a story.

    Its still a good listen and I enjoyed considerably.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    Scott Brick is the PERFECT John Cory.

    I am hoping that this books is not an attempt to satisify because there will be a delay in the next John Cory full book.

    At just under two hours, you only get a taste of John and then the book is over.

    Danny North knew from early childhood that his family was different - and that he was different from them. While his cousins were learning how to create the things that commoners called fairies, ghosts, golems, trolls, werewolves, and other such miracles that were the heritage of the North family, Danny worried that he would never show a talent, never form an "outself"....

    Book was great. But I believe that OSC must have too many projects on the go. He takes forever to continue any series. Thie book was release to audio a year and a half ago and there has been no indication that book #2 is in the making.

    I would wait for book 2 to appear before starting this series.

She knows it’s a fake, that her daughter is off with the guy Nita will call only “that boy,” and that they need money: "Even smart girls do stupid things when they think a boy loves them."

    Where does Taken rank among all the audiobooks you???ve listened to so far?

    I would have to say that this book was one of the better joe and Elvis books I have read. I would have to agree with other people on it does seem short. It may only feel that way because it's so good. In fact it's length is about the same as all the other books in this series.


    Which character ??? as performed by Luke Daniels ??? was your favorite?

    Luke's does a fantastic Elvis Cole. I seems natural and great to listen too. The joe pike is a little strained but still very good. He would be a great person to perform all new books in this series.


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

    Oh yeah, too bad my ride to work only lasts 40 minutes.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a must get. It's a shame the author takes so long to create new books in this series.

    In Frankenstein: Lost Souls, Dean Koontz puts a singular twist on this classic tale of ambition and science gone wrong, to forge a new legend uniquely suited to our times. It is a story of revenge, redemption, and the thin line that separates human from inhuman.

    Lane says: "Frankenstein Lost Souls"
    "Can you say "Money Grab!!!""
    Overall

    People are correct, it just ends without warning right in the middle of the action. A complete money grab!

    Other than the fact its 1/2 a book, it was still good, so I gave it 4 stars. The 5th books should be free if you purchased the 4th one!

    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.

    John Robertson says: "What happened to Scott Brick?!!"
    "Great book with a perfect narator."
    Overall

    I love it when they use the same narator from one book to another, it keeps character you already you have formed in your head alive.

    Although Scott Brick does a fantastic job as usual, he does start off a little monotone. However, he picks it up quickly.

    Loved the book, I hope there is another book in the John Corey series.

    "Good book for the first in the series."
    Overall

    I really like this style of detective novels. The PI has a smart mouth and guts and know how to back it up.

    The plot had some unexpected turns which gave me the impression that the author was trying to stretch the books length more than actually following an outline.

    In the end everything was tied up in a nice neat bow.

    I will definately be getting the other books in this series.
