    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    William says: "A great novel nearly ruined by the reader."
    "If it had an ending, I'd give it a 5."
    Overall

    I can't get enough of the Mitch Rapp series, and this is no exception. My only complaint is that I could not believe this installment ended when it did. I was convinced that I failed to download a segment. Alas, the narrative was at an end. Fortunately, I have already downloaded Vince Flynn's next book. Great series Mr. Flynn!

  • Full Dark, No Stars

    "I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger...." writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up "1922", the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

    Parusski says: "Eerie, honest, frightening!"
    "Not the usual Stephen King fare."
    Overall

    I consider myself a Stephen King junkey, having read and loved dozens of his books. This compilation of shorter stories lacks the Stephen King magic I loved in the past. In the author's epilogue, Mr. King seeks to justify the disturbing nature of these stories, and they are disturbing, by describing them as ordinary people in extraordinary situations. However, sheer criminal violence by one person against another is not an extraordinary situation - at least not the kind I have come to expect from a Stephen King story. Perhaps it is a lack of supernatural elements or the infusion of a political point of view, something I noticed creeping in to this author's work in recent books (see Insomnia and Under the Dome) and something the author discusses in the epilogue to this book, but I was just a little disappointed.

    Story

    Acclaimed author Alan Furst has written several historical fiction novels. In Dark Star, Andre Szara, a Polish journalist who becomes a spy for the Soviet Union in the late 1930s, is ordered to complete many tasks of espionage in Paris. Through Szara's character, the beginnings of World War II are revealed. George Guidall's gripping narration complements this suspenseful tale.

    Overall

    I love this genre and this book truly satisfied my historical curiosity with a great story to boot. I cannot wait for more from this author.

  • Lies and the Lying Liars Who Tell Them: A Fair and Balanced Look at the Right

    • UNABRIDGED (9 hrs and 51 mins)

    Story
    (294)

    Finding logical inconsistencies, factual errors, and doublespeak wherever he looks, Al Franken takes on and destroys the myth of liberal bias in the media, hoists the Bush White House on its own rhetorical petard, and punctures the mean-spirited sanctimony of such media darlings as Ann Coulter and Bill O'Reilly. Timely, provocative, unfailingly honest, and always uproarious, Lies is sure to raise hackles and spark hilarity inside the Beltway and from sea to shining sea.

    Peter says: "Franken's One Sided View"
    "Hello Pot, this is the Kettle . . . ."
    Overall

    Al Franken is a hate monger and always has been. Since his early days on Saturday Night Live, he has pursued a one-sided attack while lying about his own political leanings. Franken's latest effort is another example of his mean-spirited works of hate. We do not need his or its ilk.
