    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Parusski says: "Good Corey Story"

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    K says: "Couldn't be better...except"
    "Another Mitch Rapp thriller."

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Last Man to be better than the print version?

    My imagination gets stirred by listening through my ears, rather that through my eyes.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    The build up was great.


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

    He has the perfect voice for Rapp.


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

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Flynns books are very engrossing.

    Four people in a car, hoping to make Chicago by morning. An hour behind them, a man lies stabbed to death in an old pumping station. He was seen going in with two others, but he never came out. He has been executed, the knife work professional, the killers vanished. Within minutes, the police are notified. Within hours, the FBI descends, laying claim to the victim without ever saying who he was or why he was there. All Reacher wanted was a ride to Virginia. All he did was stick out his thumb. But he soon discovers he has hitched more than a ride.

    Bill says: "Wanted Man is Wanting ~ And I Want 14 Hours Back"
    "Jack Reacher is an impelling character."

    Would you consider the audio edition of A Wanted Man to be better than the print version?

    Did not read the book. The audio let you know about his nose. Reading the book you would miss some of those details.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jack Reacher. Always the best.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Approaching the hidden building.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Another thriller by Jack Reacher.


    Any additional comments?

    Tom Cruise should not be Jack. He is too short, and does not fit the image I have of Jack.

    Harry is out of his depth. Detective Harry Hole is meant to keep out of trouble. A young Norwegian girl taking a gap year in Sydney has been murdered, and Harry has been sent to Australia to assist in any way he can. He's not supposed to get too involved. When the team unearths a string of unsolved murders and disappearances, nothing will stop Harry from finding out the truth. The hunt for a serial killer is on, but the murderer will talk only to Harry. He might just be the next victim.

    Charles Atkinson says: "Probably the best of this remarkable series."

    Was The Bat worth the listening time?

    It was worth the listening time.
