Mitch Rapp, the CIA’s top counterterrorism operative, is sent in to take control of the crisis and determines that the president is not as safe as Washington’s power elite had thought....

    What made the experience of listening to Transfer of Power the most enjoyable?

    I was fortunate to have read American Assassin first, i was familiar with the character. I would recommend to anyone do the same. That book is good too.


    What did you like best about this story?

    That i found myself cursing, laughing, and i actually got so nervous i turned it off once just to gather myself. That ladies and gents is what I call, a Good book. I could not wait to give a review.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The satisfaction at the end, the moment of recognition. hard work pays off sometimes.


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

    one Man, one Mission, one bullet....


    Any additional comments?

    From now on I will disregard any reviewers that complain about narrators. I was so afraid to buy this book that most said was crap. Talking guy did a fine job in my opinion, and the story was great. If u want better production, buy a movie, close ur eyes and listen to them. clear voice and a good story is all you are gonna get with this one. Just one guys opinion.

    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    What did you love best about The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1?

    It is a well written story, good character development and good pace.. cant ask for more


    What other book might you compare The Black Echo: Harry Bosch Series, Book 1 to and why?

    Well it is the first detective book Ive dared listen to.


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

    Dick Hill is a pimp. Makes it easier to choose a book if he is the narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I like the choices the main character makes. there is not a lot of nonsense in his problem solving


    Any additional comments?

    Its a real good read if you like a good story and good pace. Its a dude book for sure..

    When the end finally occurred, everything about it was cinematic. The dead came back and ate people, civilization collapsed, and no one could do a thing. But Cyrus V. Sinclair couldn’t care less; he’s a sociopath. Amidst the chaos, Cyrus sits back and contemplates the gore stained streets and screams of his fellow man with little more emotion than one of the walking corpses. With his cache of guns and MREs, he rather likes the idea of hunkering down in his Seattle apartment while the world ends outside.

    Would you listen to The Undead Situation again? Why?

    At some point, most likely.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Undead Situation?

    Unusual main character, Not farfetched though. I guess when the main character bared his fangs, it was an early warning to everyone that the character and situations will be unexpected.


    Have you listened to any of Kevin T. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    Cant say with certainty, and too lazy to check.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I refuse to cry listening to an audio book. That's chick stuff. I do recall saying 'Daaang


    Any additional comments?

    This is my introduction into the horror thing. If half the books are as good as that one, then i think ill have something else in the rotation.

    Atticus O’Sullivan, last of the Druids, doesn’t care much for witches. Still, he’s about to make nice with the local coven by signing a mutually beneficial nonaggression treaty when suddenly the witch population in modern-day Tempe, Arizona, quadruples overnight. And the new girls are not just bad, they’re badasses with a dark history on the German side of World War II. With a fallen angel feasting on local high school students, a horde of Bacchants blowing in from Vegas, and a dangerously sexy Celtic goddess of fire vying for his attention, Atticus is having trouble scheduling the witch hunt.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hexed to be better than the print version?

    stop asking me that


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    The main character, i like conflicted heroes. Plus he kicks butt and does things the hard way sometimes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    the battle with the demons. Mayhem is cool.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    finding his employee dead. I liked the dude.


    Any additional comments?

    I would stop trying to compare audio and video versions of stories.. concentrate on questions about the performance or production. I have bought books after hearing them, and i have bought audio after reading the book first. who cares.

    John Rain is back. And “the most charismatic assassin since James Bond” (San Francisco Chronicle) is up against his most formidable enemy yet: the nexus of political, military, media, and corporate factions known only as the Oligarchy. When legendary black ops veteran Colonel Scott “Hort” Horton tracks Rain down in Tokyo, Rain can’t resist the offer: a multi-million dollar payday for the “natural causes” demise of three ultra-high-profile targets who are dangerously close to launching a coup in America. But the opposition on this job is going to be too much for even Rain to pull it off alone.

    why ask something like that?


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was a good story. painted a decent picture in my mind. dude was able to create enough tension for me to rewind a few times.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    when the gun was tossed. That was a moment. The choices we make.


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

    Life is full of hard choices, some cost more than others.

    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.
