    This lush novel, set in 1766 England and America, evokes an era ripe with riot and revolution, from the teeming streets of London to the sprawling grounds of a Virginia plantation. Mack McAsh burns with the desire to escape his life of slavery in Scottish coal mines while Lizzie Hallim is desperate to shed a life of sheltered subjugation to her spineless husband. United in America, their only chance for freedom lies beyond the Western frontier - if they're brave enough to take it.

    Story

    i have read all of ken follett's books and have enjoyed every last one.i especially enjoy his 30 and 40 hour epics. these longer stories are packed with information a tribute to the research he must put into each . i find his shorter stories just as engrossing and enjoyable.
    which brings me to "freedom" .things happen so quickly in this magnificent novel that the book almost had an abridged feeling about it. i would have loved it, if the author had expanded the story a little. there certainly was ample opportunity to do so . It stands alongside his best efforts , i selfishly wanted more.

    In the LAPD's Open-Unsolved Unit, not many murder victims die almost a decade after the crime. So when a man succumbs to complications from being shot by a stray bullet nine years earlier, Bosch catches a case in which the body is still fresh, but all other evidence is virtually nonexistent. Now Bosch and rookie Detective Lucia Soto, are tasked with solving what turns out to be a highly charged, politically sensitive case.

    The year is 2008 and Samantha Kofer's career at a huge Wall Street law firm is on the fast track - until the recession hits and she gets downsized, furloughed, escorted out of the building. Samantha, though, is one of the "lucky" associates. She's offered an opportunity to work at a legal aid clinic for one year without pay, after which there would be a slim chance that she'd get her old job back. In a matter of days Samantha moves from Manhattan to Brady, Virginia, population 2,200, in the heart of Appalachia, a part of the world she has only read about.

    another grisham-lite novel, where he strings us along with sparsely placed grisham moments, then ends the novel abruptly leaving us to imagine the eagerly anticipated courtroom encounters . how lazy is that?

    Only a handful of people in the world know that mankind's magic comes from a living creature, and it is a refugee from another universe. The Power showed up here in the 1850s because it was running from something. Now it is 1933, and the Power's hiding place has been discovered by a killer. It is a predator that eats magic and leaves destroyed worlds in its wake. Earth is next. Former private eye Jake Sullivan knows the score. The problem is, hardly anyone believes him.

    if you have reached book 3 nothing more needs to be said . however , the narrator deserves to be mentioned. i initially balked at bronson, thinking i could never listen without balki intruding. it never happened.

    Mickey Bolitar’s year can’t get much worse. After witnessing his father’s death and sending his mom to rehab, he’s forced to live with his estranged uncle Myron and switch high schools. A new school comes with new friends and new enemies, and lucky for Mickey, it also comes with a great new girlfriend, Ashley. For a while, it seems like Mickey’s train wreck of a life is finally improving - until Ashley vanishes without a trace. Unwilling to let another person walk out of his life, Mickey follows Ashley’s trail into a seedy underworld that reveals that this seemingly sweet, shy girl isn’t who she claimed to be.

    "Coben for teens" caused me to hesitate momentarily, but then i reasoned, it is Coben. Thoroughly enjoyed it. A nice continuation of the previous novel where Mickey was introduced. Coben has a new character that I'll be interested in seeing him develop.
    I've read and enjoyed all Coben's novels.

    In a far-distant future, the Uman Empire has spread to the stars and beyond, conquering and colonizing worlds, ruling with a benevolent - but iron - fist. The Pax Umana reigns, and all is well. But on one planet, the remnants of a violent, shape-shifting race called the Sagathis are confined, kept captive by xeno-cops, who have been bio-engineered to be able to see through their guises.

    Having read the majority of this author's books I was surprised to read one person's review as "dull and predictable". I found the book neither. It was as enjoyable as his 'legion of the damned' series and his 'earth rise' series. If you are already a dietz fan you will not be dissappointed.
