    Widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel, New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst takes listeners back to the early days of World War II for a dramatic novel of intrigue and suspense.

    People start dropping dead around Charlie, giant ravens perch on his building, and it seems that everywhere he goes, a dark presence whispers to him from under the streets. Strange names start appearing on his nightstand notepad, and before he knows it, those people end up dead, too. Yup, it seems that Charlie Asher has been recruited for a new job, an unpleasant but utterly necessary one: Death.

    "A complete surprise"
    Overall

    Not certain what I was expecting, but this was completely different. Not sure I would have continued reading it in book form, but as an audiobook it came to life with the vocalizations of each character. I was constantly being surprised and often broke into sustained laughter as the hero worked through each trial.
    Great Fun!!

    With The Ipcress File, Len Deighton invented an entirely original suspense genre. Twinkle, Twinkle, Little Spy reveals an even more mature Deighton exploring relationships between couples: professional rivals and private allies, spy and counterspy, master and slave. Some are drawn together for mutual comfort, others for exploitation. With an uncanny feeling for landscape, he begins his story in the awesome emptiness and remorseless heat of the Sahara.

    Complex relationships intertwined with complex politics

    Madeline Dare, a tough-talking, shotgun-toting ex-debutante, is not your average detective. Then again, not much about her life is what she expected. Born of old money into high society, she married into a Syracuse farming family and a bottom-of-the-food-chain job writing puff pieces for the local newspaper. Her emotional barometer these days ranges from dry irony to whining exasperation.

    Jovanna says: "A lot of fun"
    "Danger Will Robinson"
    Overall

    With bodies falling around her like flies, she goes home to sleep? Too many scenes where she didn't hear the music indicating danger afoot :)

    Violence and tensions along the US-Mexican border have never been higher, sparked by battles between rival drug lords and an increased flow of illegal migrants. To combat the threat, the United States has executed Operation Rampart: a controversial test base in southern California run by Major Jason Richter and TALON, his high-tech special operations unit.

    Tedd says: "Disappointing"
    "Political Diatribe"
    Overall

    A subject that is worthy of serious debate, not overly contrived characters who spend pages and pages (or so it seemed) spewing extremist points of view.
    Very disappointing. I have enjoyed Dale Brown books in the past, not complex reads, but fun.

    If you had to kill three people to save your best friend's life, would you do it? When John Rain decides to get out of the business, his hand is forced by rogue CIA operative Jim Hilger. Hilger kidnaps Dox, Rain's trusted partner and closest friend, and offers Rain a choice: carry out a final assignment, or bear the responsibility for Dox's murder.

    Matthew says: "An ear full and a mind full"
    "Just couldn't enjoy"
    Overall

    My first time with this author and it seemed contrived. I quit listening about 60% through the first section
