    In one bloody night, three of Washington’s most powerful politicians are executed with surgical precision. Their assassins then deliver a shocking ultimatum to the American government: set aside partisan politics and restore power to the people. No one, they warn, is out of their reach—not even the president. A joint FBI-CIA task force reveals the killers are elite military commandos, but no one knows exactly who they are or when they will strike next.

    Adrian McKinty was born in Carrickfergus, Northern Ireland. He studied politics and philosophy at Oxford before moving to America in the early 1990s. Living first in Harlem, he found employment as a construction worker, barman, and bookstore clerk. In 2000 he moved to Denver to become a high school English teacher and it was there that he began writing fiction.

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

    It was slow in parts but the narrator held my interest


    Which character – as performed by Gerard Doyle – was your favorite?

    Sean Duffy


    Any additional comments?

    Adrian McKinty is a good story teller and his books come alive with Gerard Doyle as the narrator. I kept reaching for a pint while I was listening.

    Seth Hubbard is a wealthy man dying of lung cancer. He trusts no one. Before he hangs himself from a sycamore tree, Hubbard leaves a new, handwritten, will. It is an act that drags his adult children, his black maid, and Jake into a conflict as riveting and dramatic as the murder trial that made Brigance one of Ford County's most notorious citizens, just three years earlier. The second will raises far more questions than it answers. Why would Hubbard leave nearly all of his fortune to his maid? Had chemotherapy and painkillers affected his ability to think clearly?

    What was one of the most memorable moments of Sycamore Row?

    Ansel's story


    What does Michael Beck bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I felt like Jake Brigance was telling me the story.


    Any additional comments?

    Almost didn't buy the novel because John Grishman's last few were a little weak. Glad I made the plunge. Welcome back John and Jake.

    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.

    Although the ending was kind of abrupt, it was still a good listen. I really believe George Guidall is one of the best narrators. I could listen to him for hours. I listened to an earlier Mitch Rapp book narrated by someone else and it just wasn't the same.

    Richard Coulter is a man who has everything. His beautiful new wife is pregnant, his upstart airline is undercutting the competition and moving from strength to strength, his diversification into the casino business in Macau has been successful, and his fabulous Art Deco house on an Irish cliff top has just been featured in Architectural Digest. But then, for some reason, his ex-wife Rachel doesn’t keep her side of the custody agreement and vanishes off the face of the earth with Richard’s two daughters. Richard hires Killian, a formidable ex-enforcer for the IRA, to track her down before Rachel, a recovering drug addict, harms herself or the girls.

    I could listen to Gerard Doyle read a book on Macroeconomics and be entertained. McKinty can make you like the bad guy even though you know you really shouldn't. Another book I found myself listening to in the car even though I was at my destination.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    "Hands Down One of the Best Audiobooks Ever"
    Overall

    Kudos to the author and narrators on a great book. I hated for the book to end. We named a room in our house the Relaxing Room in honor of Skeeter, Avaline and Minnie. I have listened to over 300 books on audio and this is hands down one of the best ever.

    David Wolfe's life is approaching an exhilarating peak: a successful San Francisco lawyer, he's about to get married and has been primed for a run for Congress. But when the phone rings and he hears the voice of Hana Arif, the Palestinian woman with whom he had a passionate affair in law school, he begins a completely unexpected journey. The day after Hana's call, the prime minister of Israel is assassinated by a suicide bomber - and soon Hana is accused of being the mastermind behind the murder.

    John says: "Exile"
    "One of the Best"
    Overall

    The best book I have ever listened to on audio with the possible exception of Memoirs of a Geisha. The story is compelling and it is easy to be drawn into the frustration of the problems in the Middle East and the sadness that surrounds the lives of the people who live there every day in fear of terrorism and oppression. The narrator is excellent. I listen to books in my car and found excuses to go driving so I could listen to more. The 20 hour unabridged version goes by way too fast.

    America's favorite bounty hunter, Stephanie Plum, is back in her twelfth best seller and sure to win more fans than ever before. Trenton, New Jersey's premier troublemaker is once again struggling with her tangled love life, her chaotic family, and her gift for destroying every car she drives. Not to mention her attempts to bring in the sometimes scary bail jumpers of Trenton and the sudden appearance of a mysterious female stalker, who turns out to have a close connection to Ranger.

    "A Walk with Old Friends"
    Overall

    There's simply nothing like a Janet Evanovich book narrated by Lorelei King. I would urge any member of Audible to add these books to their collection just for the fun of it. When I start listening to one of these books it is like a reunion with old friends. Stephanie, Grandma Mazur, Lula, Ranger and the other characters make the drive to work or exercise walk an enjoyable and humorous experience. Ms. King brings the characters alive. I listened to a few of Ms. Evanovich's books on audio and then read the ones I had not heard. Reading the books was almost as good as hearing them on audio because I had Ms. King's character voices in my head. There are sometimes tough decisions when purchasing an audio book but Twelve Sharp narrated by Ms. King is not one of them.

    As Clay Carter digs into the background of his client, a young man charged with a random street killing, he suddenly finds himself in the middle of a complex case against one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world, looking at the kind of enormous settlement that would totally change his life - that would make him, almost overnight, the legal profession's newest king of torts...

    It's hard not to like John Grisham and he hits on a timely topic. The difficulty I have with this book is it's predictability and the less than satisfying ending. With Mr. Grisham's last few books I have been left with the feeling that he could have done so much more with the plot. He appears to reach a point and then just wants to get it finished. I am still a huge fan, though, and will be on the lookout for the next one.
