    Best-selling author Dee Henderson's acclaimed novels are an irresistible blend of suspense, romance and spirituality. More than a million copies of Henderson's books are in print, and she has won many prizes, including the Christy, the RITA and the National Reader's Choice Award. FBI special agent Dave Richman loves hostage negotiator Kate O'Malley. But keeping her safe is another matter entirely, one that requires deep trust in God.

    Overall

    This is the first installment in the O'Malley series. I enjoyed this book, it was suspenseful and it had a great christian theme. I think there could of been a little more romance but the book was still good. I have listened to the entire O'Malley series and this is one of the best, though the entire series is very good. I think it is good to see christians operating in these type of roles.

    At the trial of Christ, Theophilus, brilliant young assessore raised in the Roman aristocracy, stands behind Pontius Pilate and whispers, "Offer to release Barabbas." The strategy backfires, and Theophilus never forgets the sight of an innocent man unjustly suffering the worst of all possible deaths - Roman crucifixion. Three decades later, Theophilus has proven himself in the legal ranks of the Roman Empire. He has survived the insane rule of Caligula and has weathered the cruel tyrant’s quest to control the woman he loves.

    I am a Randy singer fan and in my opinion, this is his best work to date. I am of the belief that no narrative will do this book justice- you just have to listen to it. This is definitely a life changing book well worth listening to twice. There is just too much to get it all in the first time around.

    This audio book has nothing to do with accountability - AT ALL!!!! It is all about family owned businesses and how it is better able to survive economic challenges as opposed to traditional businesses. In fact the word accountability is not mentioned at all in this audio book. So if you are looking for a book on accountability this is not it. The title and content is totally misleading!!! I was robbed!

    Dr. Matt Newman thought he was leaving his life as a surgeon in private practice for a better one in academic medicine. But the kidnappers who attacked him as he left the hospital at 2 a.m. have no such plans - they just want him dead. Bound and in the trunk of his car, Matt’s only thought is fleeing with his life. He does escape, but at a price: a head injury that lands him in the ICU...where he awakens to discover he’s being charged with murder. Sandra Murray is a fiery, redheaded lawyer who swore she was done with doctors after her last relationship.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    This is hands down one of Vince Flynn's best novels yet! It is a great comeback from the last Mitch Rapp book Kill Shot, which in my opinion was a bit of a disappointment. Mitch and Hurley live up to their reputation making this a great listen. I simply could not stop listening. So if you like the MItch Rapp series or if you are looking for a great listen with a lost of action from start to finish then this is the book for you. Warning, those adverse to a lot of violence may find this book offensive. Everyone else, you can't go wrong with this choice.

    I have read all of Dee Henderson's books and for the most part, they are all wonderful. Dee hasn't written any books in a while so when this book came out, I immediately purchased it. I really wanted this to be a good book but instead of a good story, what I got was a great disappointment. One, Dee spent a great deal of time talking about her other books which I found to be very tacky and boring. In fact, it was so bad I wanted to fast forward through these parts which would of meant that I would of had to fast forward through a lot of the book. Two, there were way too many stories going on at one time. The first hour or two was great then for the next 9-10 hours it was torture. The final hour was good. In my opinion, the main characters voice was horrible. At times it was simply unbearable. I guess I expected more from Dee after the O'Malley series. I'm sorry Dee, but I simply cannot recommend this book to others.

    A group of terrorists invades the White House, driving the president into an underground bunker, where he can't communicate with his government. Mitch Rapp, the CIA's top counter-terrorist operative, sneaks into the executive mansion to take control and finds that the terrorists are the least of the president's and the nation's problems.

    Rurouni says: "A good book, flawed by its audio counterpart"
    "Weakened due to Abridgment"
    Overall

    I have to agree with the majority of the other reviews, this book is severely weakened due to the fact that it is abridged. In my opinion, this book could of been edited better. There was just way too many crucial facts left out. The reader gets the basics of what the book is about but that is all; there are none of the intimate details that normally go into making a book a best seller. In addition, I believe that the story is too choppy. If the hardcopy was written just like this abridged format was, I highly doubt that it would of been a best seller. Overall, the story was good, however based upon the reputation of the author, I know that the book is better. I am unsure as to who decides whether a book should be abridged or unabridged, but I would rather pay the extra cost for the unabridged format. Basically I was left wanting more. I guess the only way to get complete satisfaction out of this story is simply to read the book, and if that is the case what do I need audible for? Simply put, buy this book if you don't care about details and you are trying to keep up with the Mitch Rapp series and don't have time to read the hardcopy.

    "Excellent one of her best"
    Overall

    I understand that there were some negative reviews about this book, and it took me a while to purchase it because of those them, however I really enjoyed this book. In fact I believe that Danger in the Shadows is one of Dee Henderson's best works. I started with The Negotiator and I found it very interesting to get more background on Dave and family prior to Kate. This is a well written book with a believable story line. If you like Dee Henderson then you will not be disappointed with this book.

    Police Chief Luke Granger is determined to find out who is behind the threats against Amanda and her sisters. Chief Granger and homicide detectives Connor and Marsh will do whatever it takes to stand in harm's way for the sake of the three Griffin women. Chances are that at least one of them will fail, and it's going to take a faith deeper than any of them currently knows to stand and confront the danger still to come.

    "Not Dee's Best"
    Overall

    I love Dee Henderson, I have purchased all of her books except for two. This is not one of Dee best, both her O'Malloy and Uncommon Hero's series was excellent however this book was not very entertaining. It had slow plot development and it was just not good. In fact I did not even finish the book. Purchase at your own risk.
