    It started when Doc Ford got the call from his old friend Frieda Matthews - her reclusive biologist brother Jobe wasn't answering the phone. Could Doc check on him? Ford can't think of a reason not to, but soon he will think of a hundred. Not only will it be one of the worst scenes he has ever encountered, but the consequences of that visit will draw him into the heart of a nightmare.

    Overall

    The book was great as expected. My problem was with Dick Hill (who I usually love), changing the characters accents and manners of speech.

    Next time, Dick, go back and review the voices and mannerisms of the characters you have already created before embarking on a new read.

    I had the same issue with Dick's narration of The Outlaws by W.E.B. Griffin. He changed all the characters in the 7th book of the series.

    GIDEON DAVIS, whose behind-the-scenes negotiating skills have earned him the role of peacemaker in conflicts around the globe, knows more about hush-hush discussions in Capitol corridors than he does about hand-to-hand combat. But his more practical, tactical skills come into play when he’s called on by family friend and government bigwig Earl Parker to chaperone a rogue agent from Southeast Asia to D.C. The agent, Tillman Davis, has promised to turn himself in— but only to his brother, Gideon.

    Overall

    It was painful for me to finish this audiobook. I never did get interested in the characters. Very predictable.

    The narrator was dull and unemotional. I would not recommend this read to anybody I like.

    The Iranian effort to develop nuclear weapons was the inspiration for this tale of spies, assassination, skullduggery, military action and political intrigue. Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad is the Devil's Disciple, and he has a plan. With 12 nuclear warheads mounted on twelve missiles, he will make Iran a martyr nation; then he will lead the world's Muslims in a holy war against western civilization.

    Hill says: "another fine book from Coonts"
    "Worst reader EVER."
    Overall

    I am soooo disappointed in the choice of Eric G. Dove to read this book. His accents are aweful. His pronunciations are worse (ie. SABO is not the pronunciation of SABOT), he reads too slow.

    Dennis Boutsikaris IS Tommy Carmellini.

    If Eric G. Dove is continues to read for this series, then I for one will not be buying the next installment.

    Israeli art restorer and occasional secret agent Gabriel Allon has a problem. He finds a prominent Swiss banker dead in front of his Raphael, and he's the prime suspect. After some diplomatic intervention, Allon is freed. However, the banker's daughter tells him that her father's French Impressionist paintings, acquired under dubious circumstances during WWII, have been stolen by the murderers. Once Allon knows about the wartime misdeeds, he is pursued by a shadowy killer known only as "the Englishman."

    Overall

    I loved this book.

    HOWEVER ... John Lee's reading is overdone with accents. It detracts from the story.
