    Charlie Heller is an ace cryptographer for the Company. He's a quiet man with a quiet job in a back office. But when terrorists shoot his fiancee in cold blood and Heller learns that the Agency has decided not to pursue those responsible, his life takes an abrupt turn. He was not a blackmailer but he will force the CIA's hand. He was not an assassin but he will penetrate the Iron Curtain with the intent to kill. Heller is an amateur with a one-in-a-million chance of success.

    "Great book!"
    Overall

    This was a great book! My mind was constantly racing trying to figure out each twist. In the end the book came together wonderfully.

    Scott Brick's narration is the best I've heard.

    A must read!

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, lives peacefully in Arizona, running an occult bookshop and shape-shifting in his spare time to hunt with his Irish wolfhound. His neighbors and customers think that this handsome, tattooed Irish dude is about twenty-one years old - when in actuality, he’s twenty-one centuries old. Not to mention: He draws his power from the earth, possesses a sharp wit, and wields an even sharper magical sword known as Fragarach, the Answerer. Unfortunately, a very angry Celtic god wants that sword, and he’s hounded Atticus for centuries....

    Ignatius Perrish spent the night drunk and doing terrible things. He woke up the next morning with a thunderous hangover, a raging headache, and a pair of horns growing from his temples. At first Ig thought the horns were a hallucination, the product of a mind damaged by rage and grief. He had spent the last year in a lonely, private purgatory, following the death of his beloved, Merrin Williams, who was raped and murdered under inexplicable circumstances.

    An intricate tale of love, haunting memories, and renewal, Second Glance begins in current-day Vermont, where an old man puts a piece of land up for sale and unintentionally raises protest from the local Abenaki Indian tribe, who insist it's a burial ground. When odd, supernatural events plague the town of Comtosook, a ghost hunter is hired by the developer to help convince the residents that there's nothing spiritual about the property.

    This story was amazing. I found the characters to be believable and was so immersed in the story I was moved to tears. I would recommend this to anyone wanting to hear a truly good book.

    Carmela08 says: "Highly recommended"
    "Waste of time"
    Overall

    This was an awful book. The characters were underdeveloped, and the author’s main purpose was to detail a man going through a midlife crisis and a successful model with a drug habit and obsession with older men. The author hints towards the model’s sexual encounters with these older men relating to possible father issues. But he never expands. He throws into the mix a brother dealing with drugs and mental illness…because he has sexual thoughts of his sister, and the model’s first job working at a bank, becoming interested in a man the age of her father, and ending with her giving him oral sex “because that’s what you do when you love someone.”

    I would not recommend this book to anyone. Don’t waste your money or time on this one.

    It's Katie Peterson's job to be a mouthy DJ, but being mouthy just got personal. Jess Harkins has started construction on a 60-story office tower next to Katie's quaint local radio station. She'd hate his building anyway: Who needs another high-rise? But Katie especially dislikes having her view blocked by the guy who turned down the chance to be her "first". So it's time for a little payback.

    Sandra says: "Very good book."
    "Wow! Can't wait for more!"
    Overall

    This book was great! It had everything, and I do mean everything. The author proves she's not only a skilled writer but has the ability to create a story that literally stops you in the midst of whatever you're doing.

    Don't pass this one up. It's worth the listen.

    A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    Patricia says: "Disappointing"
    "Great book! Kept me waiting for more."

    This is the first book I've listened to by the author, and I have to say it was really good. The book is well researched, and has plot twist right till the very end. I recommend any mystery/thriller fan to listen. It's well worth it.
