    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.

    Where does The Last Man rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    right up there at the top. Rapp & Kennedy are believable and unpredictabe


    Which character – as performed by George Guidall – was your favorite?

    Rapp is always a favorite; he's human, with flaws and a background.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Treason against the USA? Knowing Rapp was coming, what were you thinking?


    Any additional comments?

    I'm gonna miss Stan Hurley. He's so cantankerous and foul, yet such a patriot. I love that about him.

    On the far side of the world, deep in former Soviet Central Asia, lies a stronghold called the Crossroads. It is run with an iron fist by a brutal warlord calling himself Sala Jihan. He is far more than a petty dictator, for Jihan holds the fate of nations in his grasp. To save a world slipping into chaos, Jihan must either fall or be controlled.

    What made the experience of listening to Swords of Exodus the most enjoyable?

    The characters! Their individual quirks and flaws make them believable; the readers voice for Big Eddy and Carl is just funny and the story is 'stuck on the edge of your seat' great!


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

    It did. Just when I was sure of the next turn a new character popped up and sent me down another path.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Just about anytime Carl & Reaper are trying to bring their boss in! The dialogue is just too funny.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?

    Gosh, that's a hard one


    Any additional comments?

    This book was barely cooled down on my phone before I had booted up the sequel! Amoung my favorites!

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    What made the experience of listening to The Hit the most enjoyable?

    McLarty and Cassidy have done it again! This book has many twists and turns and although some of the action is way out there, the characters are alive and human with flaws and feelings.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Hit?

    The moment she realizes he can be trusted and vise-versa


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Near the end when the double cross is realized by Turner. I know people like him-arrogant to the point of annoyance - I could see the look on his face when he knew his plan didn't work.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yup! had a hard time turning it off.

    Dr. Cameran Young knew her assignment wouldn't be easy. As lead biologist on the Environment Impact Assessment team, her findings would determine the future of a large mining project in the northern Canadian bush. She expected rough conditions and hostile miners... but she didn't expect to find a dead body her first day on the job.

    Story
    What disappointed you about Edge of Survival?

    This title is listed under Mysteries & Thrillers; yet 95% of the book is different ways of describing the main characters' sex lives, thoughts about sex, or having sex.


    What was most disappointing about Toni Anderson’s story?

    the first chapter opens with interesting characters and a murder. . .then you go for about 8 hours of how the two main characters feel about each other, about life, etc. then the last chapter winds up the 'whodunit' with very obvious finale. Very big let down


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Can't say any of it stood out


    What reaction did this book spark in you? Anger, sadness, disappointment?

    bordom; and 'when will this end?"


    Any additional comments?

    The narrator did her best with what she had to read. Her voices were good.
