    Nate Overbay, a former soldier suffering from PTSD and ALS, goes to an 11th-floor bank and climbs out the bathroom window onto the ledge, ready to end it all. But as he’s steeling himself to jump, a crew of gunmen bursts into the bank and begins viciously shooting employees and customers. With nothing to lose, Nate climbs back inside, confronts the robbers, and with his military training, starts taking them out, one by one. The last man standing leaves Nate with a cryptic warning: “He will make you pay in ways you can’t imagine.” Soon enough, Nate learns what this means.

    Theodore says: "Shakes you to your very core."
    "Best thriller ever!"

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

    Kept you on the edge of your seat from beginning to end.


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

    The tenderness shown at Nate's father's cabin between the once estranged family members.....in sharp contrast to the other horrific scenes.


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He is my favorite reader. He made a powerful and suspenseful book even more powerful and suspenseful.


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

    Be prepared to be on a roller coaster ride of thrills.

    Early one morning, a former CIA agent is shot to death in the street. That night, an army vet is gunned down in his doorway. The next day, John Wells gets a phone call. Come to Langley. Now.

    "Slow and not much excitement"
    Overall

    Not a page turner. Well read but story shallow and little action in a 14 hour book.

    One late fall Sunday in southern Minnesota, a farmer brings a load of soybeans to a local grain elevator - and a young man hits him on the head with a steel bar, drops him into the grain bin, waits until he's sure he's dead, and then calls the sheriff to report the "accident." Suspicious, the sheriff calls in Virgil Flowers, who quickly breaks the kid down...and the next day the boy's found hanging in his cell. Remorse? Virgil isn't so sure....

    Bob says: "EXCELLENT!"
    "Great read!"
    Overall

    I really like Conger for the Flowers character. Sanford has really set the standard with the Prey and Flowers mysteries. The only down side is I probably will avoid Minnesota in the future. Too many creeps.

    Award-winning author Craig Johnson's critically acclaimed debut Western mystery takes listeners to the breathtaking mountains of Wyoming for a tale of cold-blooded vengeance. Four high-school boys were given suspended sentences for raping a Cheyenne girl. Now, two of the boys have been killed, and only Sheriff Walt Longmire can keep the other two safe.

    Dataman says: "Not Your Ordinary Western Novel (Series)"
    "Great Read!"
    Overall

    Johnson writes on a par with Pat Conroy...(Beach Music). He does his homework ... he is authoritative whether talking about fly fishing, Wyoming, Medical injuries, wine, firearms, or forensic matters.... His descriptions of scenes and characters are vivid. It is not the story but the storytelling that makes this book remarkable. I have just bought his next two in the series and can't wait to start them.

    Five years after the crashof TWA Flight 800, the government has declared it a result of mechanical failure. But John Corey, an ex-NYPD detective who is now a contract agent with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force, is persuaded by Kate Mayfield, his wife and task force partner, that the case deserves a second look.

    Ms Discus says: "Addictive mix of fact & intriguing storyline"
    "Great story looking for a better ending!"
    Overall

    This was an excellent story until the ending. It left you entirely unsatisfied and made the intricate preceding storyline irrelevant. However I wouldn't miss (and didn't)his next book ---- which was better...Wild Fire.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "A Great Read!"
    Overall

    I loved this author and reader. Though the story was a little James Bondish it still held my interest. The characters are enjoyable. I read earlier reviews which said this is not as good as his earlier books...Lions Gate and Night Fall. I don't know about that but I intend to find out....and I hope that reviewer is correct because I have a lot to look forward to. It is great to discover a new author.

    Here begins one of the most remarkable works of history ever fashioned. All the great battles are here, of course, from Bull Run through Shiloh, the Seven Days, Second Manassas to Antietam, and Perryville in the fall of 1862, but so are the smaller and often equally important engagements on both land and sea: Ball's Bluff, Fort Donelson, Pea Ridge, Island Ten, New Orleans, Monitor versus Merimac, and Stonewall Jackson's Valley Campaign, to mention only a few.

    Jeanne says: "The best"
    "Wonderful Experience"
    Overall

    I love Shelby Foote! From the PBS series on the Civil War, I came to know him. The audio, which I listen to while looking at the maps and illustrations in the paperback version of his three volume set, is wonderful. He describes the events with precision and the characters are described in such a manner that you come to actually "know them" and visualize them. My only suggestion....and it does not deminish the five star rating I give, is the quality of the recording...I am sometimes irritated at what appears to be some faint background noise of someone else talking... and I wish that Shelby had actually recorded it...his voice is so distinctive and expressive.
