    Ripped from today's headlines, Brian Haig's new novel finds Army lawyer Sean Drummond caught between duty to Washington's elite and the soldiers in Iraq. Dispatched to investigate the suicide of one of D.C.'s most influential defense officials, an ardent, early supporter of the war in Iraq, Drummond and his female partner find themselves in the middle of a tug-of-war between Washington's most influential power brokers and his own personal allegiance to the soldiers dying overseas.

    I loved this one!! While it took me a while to get used to a new reader, once I did , I was fine. I found the topic very timely and gave a interesting spin to current events (albeit fiction - I hope) . Loved the depth of the female character and hope the ending is foreshadowing a sequel.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    Story

    I took some time before purchasing this book based on the comments comparing John Puller negatively to Jack Reacher. I disagree with those reviewers. I am a big Reacher fan but feel Puller is his own man. The story line was compelling and I liked both Puller and Cole. I hope to see some more of him.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: The most celebrated performance in all of Audible’s history, The Help has nearly 2,000 5-star reviews from your fellow listeners. We hear the print book’s not bad, either. In pitch-perfect voices, Kathryn Stockett creates three extraordinary women whose determination to start a movement of their own forever changes a town, and the way women - mothers, daughters, caregivers, friends - view one another.

    Story

    This book was terrific. I debated between listening and reading and am glad I chose to listen. The readers brought this fantastic story to life. The charactors were very real and brought this important period of history to life . It was real to me - the good the bad and the ugly. When I finished the book today I was sad to lose the daily interaction with the charactors - and I felt hope for their futures. I would strongly recommend.

    Mason "Mace" Perry was a firebrand cop on the D.C. police force until she was kidnapped and framed for a crime. She lost everything-her badge, her career, her freedom-and spent two years in prison. Now she's back on the outside and focused on one mission: to be a cop once more. Her only shot to be a true blue again is to solve a major case on her own, and prove she has the right to wear the uniform.

    Stephen says: "No connection to new heroine"
    "A good listen for Baldacci fans"
    Overall

    I read some of the reviews that stated that this was not a good example of Baldacci's work . I strongly disagree - I really enjoyed the characters - I hope to see the sisters in future books. I enjoyed the story and did not have ANY trouble following the various sub plots. While the Camel Club series remains my favorite- I really enjoyed this one too. Ron McLarty continues to do justice to the writing.
