    The New World Order. Hitler referred to it in his diaries. President George H. W. Bush foretold of it in his speeches. Formed by a secretive global elite, the group seeking this new order has taken hold of the nation and perhaps the world. Its influence pervades every reach of American society, from the products we buy at the grocery store to the topics of evening news programs.

    What did you love best about The Trillion-Dollar Conspiracy Unabridged?

    The best part is realizing that there are still a few people left on this earth that know and understand that compassion is the sum of every intelligence and Mr. Marrs is one of those people.


    What was the most compelling aspect of this narrative?

    It reads like one long scathing indictment after another, with the same people behind it all. And it's a wonder how Mr. Pruden remains so calm instead of shouting.

    Breathless and painstakingly researched, this is a stunning debut mystery in which Sherlock Holmes unmasks Jack the Ripper. Lyndsay Faye perfectly captures all the color and syntax of Conan Doyle’s distinctive nineteenth-century London.

    Would you listen to Dust and Shadow again? Why?

    Every aspect of this book is a classic. Thoroughly enjoyable from start to finish.


    Which character – as performed by Simon Vance – was your favorite?

    Why, Mr.Sherlock Holmes of course. The narration is spot on with all of the characters. Mr. Vance is a marvelous story teller. I felt privileged just to listen to the story as it was written.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Yes. The scene at the house, just before it erupts into flames and Holmes puts his revolver down on the kitchen table. It makes no mention of him returning the weapon to his coat pocket so when he is confronted outside by the Ripper he is defenseless. Gripping...

    The Shadow Market, reveals that an enormous reshuffling of global fiscal power is taking place - and that Americans are powerless to stop it. Highly informative and sometimes startling, The Shadow Market is an urgent warning to the worldwide community and a must-listen for anyone interested in the future of the global economy, America's position in the world, or how and where to invest money.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes, I would still recommend this book simply for the content of the work.


    What aspect of John Allen Nelson’s performance would you have changed?

    John's narration was just fine until he tried to do characterizations using accents. The work became almost (cartoonish) and I think really took away from the subject matter at hand. It really would have been better just to read the story. I can imagine well enough on my own the voices of the people he was trying to emulate.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Is wincing an extreme reaction? Sigh...
