    It's Christmas Eve and Detective Alex Cross has been called out to catch someone who's robbing his church's poor box. That mission behind him, Alex returns home to celebrate with Bree, Nana, and his children. The tree decorating is barely underway before his phone rings again - a horrific hostage situation is quickly spiraling out of control. Away from his own family on the most precious of days, Alex calls upon every ounce of his training, creativity, and daring to save another family.

    Story

    I have to admit that this was one of my favorite Alex Cross books. Basically I listened to it straight ... lots of twists and turns to keep you guessing. You will not be disappointed. As a traveler I enjoyed the scenic ride.

    Just days before a massive exhibition opens at the popular New York Museum of Natural History, visitors are being savagely murdered in the museum's dark hallways and secret rooms. Autopsies indicate that the killer cannot be human. But the museum's directors plan to go ahead with a big bash to celebrate the new exhibition, in spite of the murders. Museum researcher Margo Green must find out who - or what - is doing the killing.

    Story

    I was never happy with the movie version of this book. I knew there was much more than what I saw on screen. The book did a great job of putting the pieces together, developing the characters, and keeping the reader interested up to the very end. I look forward to reading the other books in the series.

    And as always, David Colacci delivered and excellent narration of the story.

    Five years after the Death Star was destroyed and Darth Vader and the Emperor were defeated, the galaxy is struggling to heal the wounds of war, Princess Leia and Han Solo are married and expecting twins, and Luke Skywalker has become the first in a long-awaited line of new Jedi Knights. But thousands of light-years away, the last of the Emperor’s warlords - the brilliant and deadly Grand Admiral Thrawn - has taken command of the shattered Imperial fleet, readied it for war, and pointed it at the fragile heart of the New Republic....

    Story
    If you could sum up Star Wars: Heir to the Empire (20th Anniversary Edition) in three words, what would they be?

    Great Unabridged Story!


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

    Marc Thompson's delivery of all of the characterless from the classic to the expanded universe are excellent. He adds a dimension to the story that places you in the moment. It would not be the same without him.
