    CIA cleaner Micah Dalton returns for another go-round of the international espionage, government cover-ups, and high-intensity pursuit that have cemented this series in the best of spy fiction.

    "Almost as good"
    Overall

    Almost as good as The Echelon Vendetta which was a six star book. I found that changing the narrator took away from this book. But this narrator was not bad, I liked the narrator for Echelon better.
    David Stone is a quality writer he just needs to write more.
    Vince Flynn has competition!
    Stone, if you read this, get busy!

    Mackenzie Allen Philips' youngest daughter, Missy, has been abducted during a family vacation and evidence that she may have been brutally murdered is found in an abandoned shack deep in the Oregon wilderness. Four years later in the midst of his Great Sadness, Mack receives a suspicious note, apparently from God, inviting him back to that shack for a weekend. Against his better judgment he arrives at the shack on a wintry afternoon and walks back into his darkest nightmare.

    Renato says: "much more than I expected"
    "Bad Book"
    Overall

    If this is Christianity, I missed the boat somewhere. What I got out of this book, is the Author must not know anything about C.S.Lewis. C.S. and Religion are like oil and water, unless you are into eugenics. Bill Moyer's on PBS is the Main Character's favorite program on TV. Moyer is another nut case. I don't care if you are an atheist or Christian, don't waste your time, money or credits on this one.

    GIDEON DAVIS, whose behind-the-scenes negotiating skills have earned him the role of peacemaker in conflicts around the globe, knows more about hush-hush discussions in Capitol corridors than he does about hand-to-hand combat. But his more practical, tactical skills come into play when he’s called on by family friend and government bigwig Earl Parker to chaperone a rogue agent from Southeast Asia to D.C. The agent, Tillman Davis, has promised to turn himself in— but only to his brother, Gideon.

    Thomas says: "Gordon might consider going back to Producing!"
    "Gordon might consider going back to Producing!"
    Overall

    Standard Kumbaya novel about those mean old war loving pols against the peace loving "UN" types.
    Characters are not believable. Too many simple errors; i.e. Main female character removes her
    cover-alls and is wearing a skirt underneath. This is on an oil platform. This lady was the oil platform boss.

    I suspect that Howard Gordon might have inisted "24" hire Janeane Garofalo. That was when I quit watching "24".

    Narration was monotone, dull and put me to sleep.
    I really hate to give bad review but this Audio book was really bad.

    In South America a 96-year-old man of great wealth reads a book late one night and an hour later he lies dead in his bed, the secrets of his past starkly revealed. Six months later another mystery man lies dead at the bottom of his pool in a villa in Provence. This time, however, there's a witness at the scene: Shaw, the shadowy operative from The Whole Truth who barely escapes with his life.

    B. Bozeman says: "Disappointing"
    "Finally"
    Overall

    I quit reading Baldacci when he got into the Oliver Stone books. I think one of the best audible books I have read or heard was "Last Man Standing". This book, "Deliver Us From Evil" has made me a Baldacci fan again.

    Joshua Jordan’s new weapons defense system will secure America against an array of new enemies, including a nuclear strike on New York City by North Korea. But global forces are mounting and corrupt government leaders will go to any extreme to prevent an impending economic catastrophe. As world events begin setting the stage for the “end of days” foretold in Revelation, Jordan must weigh the personal price he must pay to save the nation he loves.

    In 1987, Alex Konevitch was thrown out of Moscow University for "indulging his entrepreneurial spirit." But by 1991, he was worth $300 million. On track to become Russia's wealthiest man, he makes one critical mistake: he hires the former deputy director of the KGB to handle his corporate security. And then his world begins to fall apart.

    F. Hayek says: "Superb"
    "Outstanding"
    Overall

    Haig's best book yet. I would recommend it to everyone, man, woman or, well, maybe not a child. Democrats or Republicans. He handled the political aspects in a unique way. All the politicians left and right were corrupt. His timing was superb.

    An illegal immigrant is killed in a hit-and-run on a frozen mountain road in the town of Fairview, Colorado. No one is prosecuted for his death and his case is quietly forgotten. Six months later another illegal makes a treacherous run across the border, barely escaping with her life. She finds work as a maid and, secretly, begins to investigate the death of her father. But she isn't a maid, and she's not Mexican.

    Overall

    Terrible... Show me anywhere in history a woman that is a killer the likes of the Main Character in this Novel.
    After reading all of his previous works, I was really disappointed with this novel. Why do writers and movie moguls feel the need to make women masculine beyond reality.
    Adrian, quit listening to your publisher and literary agent. My wife agreed with my appraisle.
    Why not just put a mustache on women and have them smoking cigars and spitting in the streets.
    Sorry bud, you blew it with this one.

    Charlie McKenzie is the best at what he does, and what he does is covert operations. At least he did until the U.S. government betrayed him and he ended up in jail. He's never forgiven the people who locked him up and wouldn't even give him a pass to attend his beloved wife's funeral. But the government is in big trouble when a beautiful Russian spy gets her hands on a top-secret "cloaking device" called Whirlwind. Only Charlie McKenzie has what it takes to find the Russian agent and retrieve the stolen device.

    Overall

    I hate it when I waste my money on a book.
    I know the author put in a lot of time and effort to write this book, but the dialog is juvenile. The plot is unreal and the characters are sophomoric.
    Maybe someone else will like this author's style but I didn't.

    When a car bomb explodes outside a Parisian café, Navy Seal turned covert Homeland Security Operative Scot Harvath is thrust back into the life he has tried so desperately to leave behind. Saving the intended victim of the attack, Harvath becomes party to an amazing and perilous race to uncover a secret so powerful that militant Islam could be defeated once and for all without firing another shot, dropping another bomb, or launching another covert action.

    Linda says: "Wonderful book"
    "Bad Politics"
    Overall

    As long as authors wish to inject their politics into their books (Clinton-Gore T-Shirt) they can loose readers who are opposed to their flavor of politics.
    This will be my last Brad Thor Novel. It wasn't very good anyway.

    A generation has passed since the Change that rendered technology inoperable around the world, and western Oregon has finally achieved a degree of peace. But a new threat has risen in Paradise Valley, Wyoming. A man known as the Prophet presides over the Church Universal and Triumphant, teaching his followers to continue God's work by destroying the remnants of technological civilization they encounter - and those who dare use them.

    Michael says: "Change is not always good, but this book is."
    "Bad Ending"
    Overall

    This book could have eaisily rated 4 or 5 stars but the ending was terrible. It's like the author had to stop because he was late for a very important date. Not only did he stop but the ending made little or no sense. Todd McLaren's narration was excellent.
