Soon, he and archaeologist Tess Chaykin are drawn into the dark, hidden history of the crusading knights.

    Story

    This is an interesting story with a definite ending. Of course there are always a couple of parts that you should not dwell on for believability. There is a lot of action and good flow. Surely, you have heard of the Knights Templar and their protection of some secrets. This story is one possible line of those secrets coming to light. The story takes place in current times and flashbacks to the past. The narrator is very good.

    In medieval England, four children have been murdered, and the townsfolk blame their Jewish neighbors. The doctor chosen to investigate is a woman, Adelia. As she examines the victims and retraces their last steps, she must conceal her true identity in order to avoid accusations of witchcraft. Along the way, she's assisted by Sir Rowley Picot, a man with a personal stake in the investigation. A former Crusader knight, Rowley may be a needed friend - or the fiend for whom they are searching.

    Story

    Murder mystery. Main character a lady with a special talent sent on a secret
    mission to help the King of England. There is alot of background explanation
    along the way. Good character development. The story is about the people
    of the time and their inter workings. This is not a war story. The killer is not
    revealed till near the end. And that is not the end of the story. The reader is
    a lady and very good in pronounciation. One of my favorites.

    Story

    Pride and Prejudice captures the affections of class-conscious 18th-century English families with matrimonial aims and rivalries. This story of the Bennet family and the novel's two protagonists, Elizabeth Bennet and Mr. Darcy, is told with a wit that author Jane Austen feared might prove "rather too light and bright, and sparkling".

    Elizabeth says: "Perfection!"
    "As you know, a classic!"

    Story

    Excellent story of love and feelings at that time. The BBC movie with Colin
    Firth was much like this. Most of the characters thoughts or reasons for
    action are given by the author and there is alot of explanation at the end.
    I thought the author should tell us more of Mr. Darcy and his coming to terms
    with his own faults. The movie added a little in this regard. I will listen to this
    one many times.

    In this, their first adventure, Chet and Bernie investigate the disappearance of Madison, a teenage girl who may or may not have been kidnapped, but who has definitely gotten mixed up with some very unsavory characters.

    Story

    The whole story is from the perspective of the dog, Chet. And he is the story teller. If you have owned or been around dogs this will help you understand them. This is
    a detective story with Chet's owner as the detective. Would say the story was for all ages except for a line about Chet's olfactory skills and some four letter words beginning with f. Some parts a little drawn out as Chet limited in communication.
    Definitely, a different sort of book.

    Story

    The Godfather is an extraordinary novel which has become a modern-day classic. Puzo pulls us inside the violent society of the Mafia and its gang wars. The leader, Vito Corleone, is the Godfather. He is a benevolent despot who stops at nothing to gain and hold power.

    Tim says: "Couldn't Disagree More..."
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    When each character has a different voice it is probably going to be good and this audio book does. The book is much the same as the movie with the background added. Some of the background related to sex would have pushed the movie beyond the "R" rating. If you liked the movie; get this too!

    From a top-secret government laboratory come two genetically altered life forms. One is a magnificent dog of astonishing intelligence. The other, a hybrid monster of a brutally violent nature. And both are on the loose....

    Katie says: "Great book; so-so narrator"
    "Not his best"
    Overall

    I wanted a science mystery etc. This is a romantic novel with a smart dog, smart monster, and hitman thrown in for color.

    In her best-selling Amelia Peabody mysteries, author Elizabeth Peters has created an award-winning mixture of vivid archeological detail, finely-tuned suspense, and witty romance. This, the 12th Amelia Peabody mystery, opens in 1914. As the tides of war rise, Egypt is threatened by attacks. Espionage abounds, pulling in several members of the Peabody Emerson household even as they embark on a new archeological season.

    iphone reader says: "Excellent!"
    "Another execellent one from E. Peters"
    Overall

    My first and favorite is Children of The Storm.
    This one answers a lot of questions about the
    character's backgrounds.

    This is the book the CIA does not want you to read. For the last 60 years, the CIA has maintained a formidable reputation in spite of its terrible record, never disclosing its blunders to the American public. It spun its own truth to the nation while reality lay buried in classified archives. Now, Pulitzer Prize-winning New York Times reporter Tim Weiner offers a stunning indictment of the CIA, a deeply flawed organization that has never deserved America's confidence.

    Michael says: "Flawed but Important"
    "Excellent!"
    Overall

    This may shed some light on why some countries have a bad opinion of the U.S. To the naysayer I say the whole book cannot be false. This is a good behind the scenes of the politics of the times. I, now 50, do not understand why a country (the U.S.) who believes in freedom would not respect a communist leader elected in free elections.

  • Asshole: How I Got Rich & Happy by Not Giving a Damn about Anyone & How You Can, Too

    Marty Kihn was the nicest guy in the world, until he got fed up with being passed over for promotions at work, tired of being suckered into walking his neighbor's dog, and sick of being disrespected by the man who sold him his morning coffee. On the day he turned 40, Kihn set out to transform himself from Mr. Nice Guy into a rule-breaking, power-mongering, Fox News-watching asshole.

    Thomas says: "Enlightening, real info"
    "Not really a "How To...""
    Overall

    This is more of one man's experience. The end is a little surprising. All "nice" guys should
    listen to this once.
