    Rick Dockery was the third-string quarterback for the Cleveland Browns. In a championship game, to the surprise and dismay of everyone, Rick actually got into the game and then provided what was arguably the worst single performance in the history of the NFL. Overnight, he became a national laughingstock and, of course, was immediately cut by the Browns and shunned by all other teams. But against enormous odds, Arnie finally locates another team that will have him: the mighty Panthers of Parma, Italy.

    I wish Mr.Grisham would stick to rogue lawyers. I really don't get this effort. It was boring. I kept waiting for something to happen. I'll buy his next book, but I hope he goes in another direction

    It's 1951, and the last place any sane man wishes to visit is Thebes State Penal Farm (Colored) in Thebes, Mississippi. Surrounded by swamps and impenetrable woods, it's the Old South at its most brutal. Few visitors make it out alive, but Sam Vincent and Earl Swagger must investigate a disappearance. Pale Horse Coming is a stunning story of violence and retribution, written with the same high velocity of Hunter's classic thrillers.

    First I have to say that Jay o. Sanders reading was amazing. He made each character come alive. This was a really fun listen. The plot moved right along and never stopped giving me the chills. It was a pretty brutal story in spots, so be warned, but evil was overcome in a really cool way. If you liked the Seven Samauri or The Magnificent Seven, you will like this book

    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"
    "Like a Brick"
    Overall

    This is an interesting concept for a novel. Taking a controversial disaster and delving into the background. I enjoyed "Lion's Game" a lot more, because the pacing was faster. "Night Fall" tended to loaf in places.
    Scott Brick's reading was awful; especially since he did such a nice job in "Lion's Game".The character John Corey is a ex-New York City detective, who is a real wise guy. Brick nailed his character in "Lion's Game", but was all over the place in "Night Fall". He went from his own voice to a terrible New York City accent, then when Corey speaks to his ex-partner, Finelli. Finelli recieves the accented dialog and Corey becomes Scott Brick.
    The story is interesting though, except for the oddly out of place pornographic sex scene in the very beginning. It will hold your interest, but the ending is terribly contrived.
    Oh well. I'm listening to "Mayday" now and it seems to be promising.

    To survive in a game with no rules at all, John Corey must invent a strategy that includes no luck at all. He and the Anti-Terrorist Task Force must stop "The Lion," an alleged Libyan terrorist with the instincts of a wild animal, the bloodlust of a carnivore, and the boldness and speed of a cat of prey.

    CoCo says: "Excellent and engaging"
    "Fun and thrilling"
    Overall

    I loved the John Corey Character. I love wise-guy, smart, cop characters. I'd love to see this made into a movie. It was pretty fast paced, but could have avoided the "big" love story. (Wait until you listen to the beginning of "Night Fall.")
    The evildoer moves along at a steady pace as the authorities stumble and bumble until John gets them on a firm trail and moves toward an unpredictable ending, leaving us open for a sequel, hopefully.
    Scott Brick somehow comes out of his exasperated narration style to give Corey a snappy, New York, wise-guy voice that just doesn't sound like Scott Brick. Sadly he goes back to his old style in "Nightfall".

    The one thing you can depend on in Cold Sassy, Georgia, is that word gets around fast. If the preacher's wife's petticoat shows, the ladies will make the talk last a week. But on July 5, 1906, things take a scandalous turn. That is the day E. Rucker Blakeslee, proprietor of the general store and barely three weeks a widower, elopes with Miss Love Simpson, a woman half his age and, worse yet, a Yankee!

    D says: "EXCELLENT"
    "You All...."
    Overall

    Hey , if you want an annoying few hours listen to this book. If you can get beyond the pathetic accented reader, you will find it loaded with southern stereotypes. Very Shallow
