    Takes you on a pretty interesting ride, but the end sucks... rather ride somewhere else.
    Just depressing most of the way through... kept hoping it would be worth it.
    Riveted, but depressed.

    Whether dueling with new forensics or the local old boys' network, irreverent defense attorney Andy Carpenter always leaves them awed with his biting wit and winning fourth-quarter game plan. But the fun stops the day Andy's dad, Paterson, New Jersey's legendary ex-DA, drops dead in front of him at a game in Yankee Stadium.

    I enjoyed this one. Very much. I like that I knew something was up, but couldn't figure it out ahead of the plotline.

    When diplomacy has failed and military intervention is deemed inappropriate, our leaders often turn to a silent and dark community for results. This is a course of action not always taken by wise and honorable men. In certain circles it is known as "the third option."

    After a near-fatal head injury, Navy SEAL lieutenant Tom Paoletti catches a terrifying glimpse of an international terrorist in his New England hometown. When he calls for help, the Navy dismisses the danger as injury-induced imaginings. In a desperate effort to prevent disaster, Tom creates his own makeshift counterterrorist team, assembling his most loyal officers, two elderly war veterans, a couple of misfit teenagers, and Dr. Kelly Ashton - the sweet girl next door who has grown into a remarkable woman.

    Story

    OMG!
    For every 3 minutes discussing the terrorist danger, you had to sit through 45 minutes of PAINFULLY SLOW "does she like me?"... "her golden hair..." "her eyes"... "did he dare trust someone ever again" "but he loved her, so I should never have..." "...ever know love again?"
    BLAH BLAH BLAH!!!

    I kept hoping for some exciting espionage, but it is just an INCREDIBLY, painful MULTIPLE love story:
    basically two couples plus one love triangle with no one clearly expressing their true feelings & hardly any actual "action" (not espionage, not between the love interests).

    The actual espionage storyline was thin, brief & might have taken one (two max) chapters... including all the work of bringing in pals to help & setting up surveillance, etc.

    I would prefer TWO root canals to hearing another story like this one.
    The new book that I'm listening to, had two assasinations within the first 20 minutes... that's action... 3/4 way through: 3 interesting attempts on the hero's life, 9+ interesting deaths (interesting person killed &/or interesting method... usually BOTH) -- not counting hoards of soldiers in gunfights-- one kidnapping. Just TONS of action.

    Barbara Holloway has a reputation for taking on the toughest cases - and winning them. But this time she's up against an unbeatable opponent - her father, the lawyer who taught her all she knows.

    Story

    Good story... a bit dragged out.
    Performance was ok... editing was awful...
    One section would end & the next would begin with virtually NO PAUSE or alert... sometimes less that the pause typically afforded the period/end of a sentence within a paragraph.
    HORRID!
