    When CIA "fixer" Micah Dalton's friend and mentor turns up dead, he's put on a collision course with a killer who has a penchant for intricate knife-work and Native American mysticism, a sadist who is killing ex-CIA agents. The victims are hard-nosed field men whose only link to one another seems to be a global surveillance operation called Echelon. The murders appear to be acts of retribution. But for what?

    "Worst Listen..."
    Overall

    This had to be the worst audio book I ever tried to listen to. I kept trying to like the book, or at least like the main character and couldn't. I love espionage books like Ludlum et al but this wasn't even close. It was wierd, gruseome and dragged on interminably. May try to finish listening at some point if I'm ever bored enough but I doubt it.

    Earth is conquered. The Shongairi have arrived in force, and humanity’s cities lie in radioactive ruins. In mere minutes, over half the human race has died. Now Master Sergeant Stephen Buchevsky, who thought he was being rotated home from his latest tour in Afghanistan, finds himself instead prowling the back country of the Balkans, dodging alien patrols and trying to organize the scattered survivors without getting killed.

    Overall

    Out of the Dark is so good I recommended it to everyone I talked to in the last two weeks. I walked around the house all day today with my ipod because I couldn't wait to find out what happened in the next chapter. I hated for it to end and would love for Mr. Weber to write a sequel.

    Psychiatrist Andrew Marlowe has a perfectly ordered life--solitary, perhaps, but full of devotion to his profession and the painting hobby he loves. This order is destroyed when renowned painter Robert Oliver attacks a canvas in the National Gallery of Art and becomes his patient. In response, Marlowe finds himself going beyond his own legal and ethical boundaries to understand the secret that torments this genius, a journey that will lead him into the lives of the women closest to Robert Oliver.

    Sara says: "Such Potential Wasted"
    "Not The Historian..."
    Overall

    I have waited anxiously for two years for a new book by Kostova. I loved The Historian so much I've listened to it twice and gave copies of the book to everyone for Christmas when it first came out. Kostova's writing style is fabulous but I kept waiting for something exciting to happen. I was hoping it had something mysterious like a ghost or reincarnation...anything to spice it up. I'll definitely read more reviews before I hurridly buy another book just because I like the author.
