    Julia Webster's husband, a U.S. Senator, has used his wife's graciousness and elegance to advance his career even as he's abused her trust at every turn and left her dreams for the future in tatters. Now, on the eve of his greatest political victory, he's about to learn a serious lesson in payback. Because the senator crossed the wrong woman...and there are six more where she came from.

    Can two young people survive the suspicions of their friends and neighbors when tragedy strikes a close-knit Amish community? Perry Borntrager had been missing for months from the quiet community of Crittenden, Kentucky, when his body is discovered at the bottom of a well. The first death from mysterious circumstances in more than two decades brings the scrutiny of the outside world: A police detective arrives to help the local sheriff with the investigation. His questioning begins with Lydia Plank, Perry's former girlfriend, and Perry's best friend, the Englischer Walker Anderson.

    Whether you are Amish or English this is a good book. So refreshing to listen to an entire book without one off color word.

    Mexican drug cartels are shooting up the streets of Laredo and El Paso. Somali pirates are holding three U.S. tankers for ransom. The President of the United States is fed up and, as Commander in Chief, has what he thinks is a pretty bright idea — to get hold of Colonel Charley Castillo and his merry band and get them on the case. Unfortunately, that will be difficult. Everybody knows that the President hates Castillo’s guts, and has just had him forcibly retired from the military, and now Castillo’s men are scattered far and wide, many of them in hiding.

    Story

    I have purchased almost all of Griffins books that are narrated by Dick Hill ( he is my favorite male narrator) and found them to be addicting. The Presidential series was the beginning of my adventure with his books and I looked forward to this one.

    What a hoot!!! I truly did not expect it to be a comedy but found myself laughing out loud to the amusement of my spouse and children.

    Outside of his use of a few words that I know my mom would not approve of most anyone would enjoy this book. Two thumbs up.

    The Spandau Diary -- what was in it? Why did the secret intelligence agencies of every major power want it? Why was a brave and beautiful woman kidnapped to get it? Why did a chain of deception and violent death lash out across the globe, from survivors of the Nazi past to warriors in this new conflict about to explode? Why did the world's entire history of World War II have to be rewritten as the future hung over a nightmare abyss?

    Where does Spandau Phoenix rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    Close to the top.


    What other book might you compare Spandau Phoenix to and why?

    Not sure if I can compare it to another. I enjoy long books with a detailed plot.


    What does Dick Hill bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Dick Hill is one of my favorite narrators. He has a great timbre and quite a varied range.


    Any additional comments?

    Waiting for more from Greg Iles. Have enjoyed not only the Phoenix book but the Black Cross book as well.

    From David Baldacci - the modern master of the thriller and number-one worldwide best-selling novelist - comes a new hero: a lone Army Special Agent taking on the toughest crimes facing the nation. John Puller is a combat veteran and the best military investigator in the U.S. Army's Criminal Investigative Division. His father was an Army fighting legend, and his brother is serving a life sentence for treason in a federal military prison. Puller has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable drive to find the truth.

    What made the experience of listening to Zero Day the most enjoyable?

    As always David Baldacci has written a book that keeps you listening. After listening to the entire Oliver Stone series I hope that we are in for a John Puller series.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    McLarty and Cassidy are some of the best narrators I have listened to and I look for them in other authors as well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes. I wish I had been able to listen all in one sitting, however baking cookies with friends I had to

    The women of the Sisterhood are fun, smart, sassy, and determined to get their way every time. But most of all, they are the best friends a woman wants by her side in good times and bad. Meeting once again in Myra Rutledge's beautiful Virginia home, they're ready to face a new challenge and right a vicious wrong.

    On the surface, these seven women are as different as can be - but each has had her share of bad luck, from cheating husbands to sexist colleagues to a legal system that often doesn't do its job. Now, drawn together by tragedy, they're forging a bond that will help them right the wrongs committed against them and discover an inner strength they didn't know they had. The Sisterhood is learning that when bad things happen, you can roll over and play dead...or you can get up fighting...
