    With her young son's potentially fatal neuroblastoma in complete remission, New York City medical examiner Laurie Montgomery returns to work, only to face the case of her career. The investigation into the death of CIA agent Kevin Markham is a professional challenge-and has Laurie's colleagues wondering if she still has what it takes after so much time away. Laurie and Jack race to connect the dots before they are consumed in a dangerous game of biotech espionage.

    Overall

    This book si so poorly written, I can't finish it. It is overly repetitive and redundance 9I know, I know). The characters are poorly drawn. Details are either missing or so obvious that you want to yell, "Duh!" The naarration is monotone and with little variation between characters.

    From the locked archives of the Vatican to the overgrown jungles of Ethiopia, an unlikely trio begins a deadly search for the Holy Grail. Two journalists and a beautiful photographer are traveling together in a broken down Jeep while covering the 1975 Ethiopian civil war. Both men fall in love with the woman and that complicates things. When the trio winds up lost in the jungle, in the no man's land between the fighting factions, they take cover and dig in for the night. In their hiding place, they encounter a dying man who tells them an amazing and quite unbelievable story. But for some reason - one that they grapple with for the rest of their journey - that night they believe.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    a religious fanatic


    What was most disappointing about Nelson DeMille’s story?

    Plot was trite and out of date. Characters lacked any kind of depth and conflict, outside of sexual jealousy. Themes were sophomoric.... "If you believe in love you believe in God"?! Really?


    What didn’t you like about Scott Brick’s performance?

    Monotonous. Characters could have used a lot more punch

    A lot of money - cold, hard cash - has "ended up" in stockholder Garrett Reaves's bank account. Someone is trying to frame him. Investment house president Megan McKearn - his former lover - had motive, means and opportunity. Is she guilty? It looks as though Garrett will have to, once again, get very close to Megan to find out.

    "Slow and repetitive"
    Overall

    I'll never buy another. This was one of the most repetitive and poorly written books I've listened to, not to mention the cliches. The narration is choppy and awkward.
