    A shadowy figure known as the Dog is believed to be the ruthless terrorist who is systematically and savagely assassinating American diplomats and their families around the globe. As the deadly toll mounts inexorably, Hawke, along with former NYPD cop and Navy SEAL Stokely Jones, is called upon by the U.S. government to launch a search for the assassin behind the murders.

    Overall

    This is an exciting listen! Lots of action and intrigue. John Shea is a reader beyond belief! I would have sworn I was listening to multiple readers, since the accents and the difference in characters is amazing! I will listen to anything he reads! Fun listen!

    Russia gains a new tsar, a signal to the world that the imperial Russia is back and plans to have her day. In America, a killer known only as Happy the Baker brutally murders an innocent family and literally flattens the small Midwestern town they once called home. Just a taste, according to the new tsar, of what will happen if America does not back down. Alex Hawke is the only man who can stop the madness.

    A User says: "pure masculine entertainment"

    Overall

    The books of Ted Bell are very entertaining. John Shea's narration is unparalleled! You would swear that you are listening to different people. He is clearly a very gifted actor. I would listen to ANYTHING he narrates!

  • Water for Elephants

    • UNABRIDGED (11 hrs and 26 mins)

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Some books are meant to be read; others are meant to be heard – Water for Elephants falls into the second group, and is one of the best examples we have of how a powerful performance enhances a great story. Nonagenarian Jacob Jankowski reflects back on his wild and wondrous days with a circus. It's the Depression Era and Jacob, finding himself parentless and penniless, joins the Benzini Brothers Most Spectacular Show on Earth.

    Kindle Customer says: "Great Narration!!"
    "One of my all time favorites"
    Overall

    A wonderful listen! This book made me shed tears of sadness and tears of joy! I NEVER cry at movies or reading books! Don't miss this one!
    Thanks to Audible for suggesting this as the best listen of 2006. I loved it!

    "Reads like fiction!"
    Overall

    This was a fun read for me because many of the Chicago locations were places I am familiar with but never knew the history. It is a riveting accounting of that era, and I learned so much. If you enjoy Chicago, you will enjoy this book/

  • The Kite Runner

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Never before has an author’s narration of his fiction been so important to fully grasping the book’s impact and global implications. Taking us from Afghanistan in the final days of its monarchy to the present, The Kite Runner is the unforgettable story of the friendship between two boys growing up in Kabul. Their intertwined lives, and their fates, reflect the eventual tragedy of the world around them.

    Joseph says: "A storyteller's story"
    "Beautifully writtern"
    Overall

    This is a wonderful visually written book, that made me feel as if I was there myself. There was so much that was better beause I listened rather than read it. Its universal themes really hit home. I recommend this book to everyone I know!
