    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    What disappointed you about The Panther?

    very slow moving. Not much action


    Would you ever listen to anything by Nelson DeMille again?

    yes, Normally I love his books


    Did Scott Brick do a good job differentiating all the characters? How?

    yes


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from The Panther?

    many of the planning ones.


    Any additional comments?

    I normally love the John Corey books and all of Nelson DeMille's books. This book just seemed to have lots of narrative and very little action.

    Flowers is only in his late 30's, but he's been around the block a few times, and he doesn't think much can surprise him anymore. He's wrong. It's a hot, humid summer night in Minnesota, and Flowers is in bed with one of his ex-wives (the second one , if you're keeping count ) when the phone rings. It's Lucas Davenport. There's a body in Stillwater, two shots to the head, found near a veterans' memorial. And the victim has a lemon in his mouth.

    For the second time in his short life, Teddy Clock has survived a massacre. Two years ago, he barely escaped when his entire family was slaughtered. Now, at 14, in a hideous echo of the past, Teddy is the lone survivor of his foster family’s mass murder. Orphaned once more, the traumatized teenager has nowhere to turn - until the Boston PD puts Detective Jane Rizzoli on the case. Determined to protect this young man, Jane discovers that what seemed like a coincidence is one part of a killer’s mission.

    A successful lawyer and loving mother, Nina Bloom would do anything to protect the life she's built in New York - including lying to everyone, even her daughter, about her past. But when an innocent man is framed for murder, she knows that she can't let him pay for the real killer's crimes.

    Overall

    I look to James Patterson for light escapism but I have to echo the people who gave this book a thumbs down. Never felt very connected to the character, too preposterous and the narrator and cheesy music were over the top bad.

    I still get sucked into some of Patterson's series but will definitely be avoiding the collaberations.

    Not worth your time.

    Detective Alex Cross and Bree's wedding plans are put on hold when Alex is called to the scene of the perfectly executed assassination of two of Washington D.C.'s most corrupt: a dirty congressmen and a scheming lobbyist. Next, the elusive marksman begins picking off other crooked politicians, sparking a blaze of theories - is the marksman a hero or a vigilante? The case explodes and FBI agent Max Siegel battles Alex for jurisdiction.

    Andrea D. Thomas says: "Loved It!"
    "okay"
    Overall

    I enjoy listening to the Alex Cross books. Have heard them all. I was also disappointed with the new narrator. It felt like he was rushing it. And the book wasn't that long I couldn't figure out why.

    By the very end I was used to him but the narration was definitely worse than in previous books. The book was ok. I don't expect too much from Patterson books anymore as he churns them out so quickly. But quick entertainment is what I expected and what I got.

    One evening, Danny, an East End cockney who works as a garage mechanic, takes his girlfriend up to the West End to celebrate their engagement. He crosses the path of Spencer Craig, a West End barrister tipped to be the youngest Queen's Counsel of his generation. A few hours later Danny is arrested for murder and later is sentenced to 22 years in prison.

    Josh says: "Fun, Predictable Fluff"
    "I listened to it twice"
    Overall

    I've always been an Archer fan but this story kept me wanting to hear more. I'd find reasons to go places because I listen in my car.

    Loved the narrator and the characters, kept my attention the entire time!
