    Supreme Allied Commander Dwight D. Eisenhower, General George S. Patton, and General Omar N. Bradley engineered the Allied conquest that shattered Hitler’s hold over Europe. But they also shared an intricate web of relationships going back decades. In the cauldron of World War II, they found their prewar friendships complicated by shifting allegiances, jealousy, insecurity, patriotism, and ambition.

    Overall

    If one of your heroes are Patton, Eisenhower or Bradley, you will love this book. The behind the scenes info revealed in this book really gives you an idea of the stress Eisenhower was under, his strained but affectionate relationship with Patton and his deep respect for Bradley. Time is fairly well split between all 3 men, but Ike & Patton do get a little more attention than Bradley, primarily beacause they knew each other longer and better. In fact, in the 1920's they could be considered best friends. I can't imagine the hours, probably measured in years, that the author put into this book. I learned a lot and was greatly impressed. Please note that it is not a complete history of the war, but a look at each mans daily life with insight as to what drove their decisions. Highly recommended to the WWII buff....but might bore the casual listener.

    In Lisa Gardner’s first-ever short story following thirteen bestselling novels, The 7th Month takes listeners between the books and into a day in the life of Boston Detective D. D. Warren. In her seventh month of pregnancy, D.D. should be taking it easy. Instead, she accepts a small consulting role on the set of a serial killer film shooting in Boston.

    Story

    I forced myself and got about half way thru before I could take it no more. This book makes unlogical leaps, jumps to conclusions, and most of them are so unrealistic it's ridiculous. These things would never happen in real life. I'd like to give specific examples but that might spoil the book for future listeners. Don't pay a dime for this book.

    Story

    The man most hated by the LAPD - a black lawyer who has made his name by bringing lawsuits alleging racism and brutality by police officers - has been found murdered on the eve of a high-profile trial. The list of suspects includes half the police force. And Harry Bosch is the detective chosen to head the investigation. The political dangers of the case are huge. If it's not investigated fairly, the public outcry could make the Rodney King riots look tame. But a full investigation will take Bosch into the ugliest corners of law enforcement.

    Story

    Absolutely horrible narration. You can't even tell when Burt changes characters, and he whispers darn near the whole thing.....just plain bad. I could not finish this book, even after 2 attempts. It's abridged and you can really tell - they took out way too much material to keep the story interesting. The 2 star rating for the story is probably not the authors fault, but rather the person who abridged it.
