    When novelist Owen Quine goes missing, his wife calls in private detective Cormoran Strike. At first, Mrs. Quine just thinks her husband has gone off by himself for a few days - as he has done before - and she wants Strike to find him and bring him home. But as Strike investigates, it becomes clear that there is more to Quine's disappearance than his wife realizes. The novelist has just completed a manuscript featuring poisonous pen-portraits of almost everyone he knows.

    well written, characters are further developed and interesting, I like these people. The narrater is excellent, but the story leaves a sour taste in my mouth.

    On the 85th floor of a glittering high-rise in Los Angeles, Robert Tarza steps into the lobby of the Marbury Marfan law firm to discover his partner Simon Rafer lying in a pool of blood - an ornate dagger plunged into his back. Robert had worked with Simon for decades, and their relationship was fraught with conflict. But he never imagined he would wind up as the prime suspect for his colleague’s murder. As the evidence stacks up against him with frightening speed, he quickly falls from his respected position to that of a criminal dragged through the tabloids.

    Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks....

    Story

    listened to this series first from library downloads which were abridged. Do not care for abridged books but that's all available at the library. The narration however in the abridged was superb and certainly makes this one a poor second. Mr. Guidall's voice and interpretation of the characters is great, but his delivery is just irritating after listening to
    Armand Schultz. I so like this series that I want to own them all and will just put up with Guidall, bummer!

    It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

    Story

    Vince Flynn wrote exceptional books, he had a way of telling a story that makes you want to read all day & night and then be sorry when it is over.This book is one of the best reads I have experienced, well all in the series fit that description. George Guidall has a great voice, he is able to make me hear all the different characters but his delivery just drives me crazy for the first few hours, it is slurred and sloppy, then he either gets more crisp or I adjust to it and am able to enjoy the reading.

    Before he was considered a CIA superagent, before he was thought of as a terrorists worst nightmare, and before he was both loathed and admired by the politicians on Capitol Hill, Mitch Rapp was a gifted college athlete without a care in the world . . . and then tragedy struck.

    Story

    have enjoyed other Vince Flynn books and have listened to this series in abridged format with a great narrator. This narration was sloppy, garbled and wet sounding almost as though his tongue was swollen. The superior writing and story line is all that kept me listening and I hate it that George Guidall has narrated so many others in the series.

    The rescue on Duran Island did not go as planned. Jonathan Quinn knows that someone is responsible. That someone decided throwing people Quinn cares about into the line of fire in a cold-hearted act of self-preservation was a good idea. He also knows that this someone has made a serious mistake. Because when Quinn gets mad, the last place anyone should ever be is in his crosshairs. He will not stop until the guilty pay. Sometimes revenge is best served now.

    after discovering Quinn I read each book one after the other. Brett Battles and Scott
    Brick are another great team , can't imagine a Quinn read by anyone else and I do hope there are a number more in the future to be read.

    The first of Ngaio Marsh's 32 acclaimed mystery novels, this introduces the continuing detective protagonist, Sir Roderick Alleyn of Scotland Yard. Five guests gather at Sir Hubert Handesley's country house party for the amusing parlor game of "Murder". But they aren't laughing when the lights come up on an actual corpse: the handsome and mysterious Charles Rankin with a dagger in his back.

    these books continued to get better and better as with most authors. For a good story without blood thunder and sex but rather good story lines with interesting plots give them a try.
