    Story

    Michael Wingate has only a few sparse memories of his childhood. Abandoned on a playground at the age of four, knowing only his first name, Michael grew up as Mike Doe. For years Michael would sit by the picture window of his foster home, waiting for his father to return.

    Now, all grown up, Michael has more than he could want - a good job, a beautiful wife, and a loving daughter. Despite all this, Michael continues to search for the parents he barely remembers, enlisting the help of a private detective.

    Then, on the eve he is given a special award for a building project, a sunflower seed chewing cripple and his oafish sidekick begin to harass Michael. Within days, the harassment escalates. Michael knows they want something, but what? Michael calls an old foster-home buddy, Shep, for help after receiving a cryptic text message: You're Next.

    The story keeps you guessing who is the mastermind and Scott Brick's voice for Shep is wonderful.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Emerald Atlas to be better than the print version?

    I enjoyed the audio version better only because of Jim Dale. He has a way of pulling you into the story so you are no longer a listener, but right there with Kate, Michael and Emma.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Emerald Atlas?

    There were many memorable moments to the story. One of my favorites was the scene where the children escaped from the Countesses dungeon and slipped through the forest, only to be tracked by the Countesses wolves. You'll have to listen to find out if they escaped!


    What about Jim Dale’s performance did you like?

    He switches voices for each character, remains true to that character's voice throughout and adds the proper infliction to the voice when called for. If the story reads, Emma shouted, Dale shouts the words Emma speaks. If the story reads, Michael whispered, barely audible, Dale delivers. He is the master of performers.


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

    Grab your photographs and prepare to embark on a magical journey through the Emerald Atlas.


    Any additional comments?

    Well worth the listen. You won't be disappointed!

    Four United States presidents have been assassinated - in 1865, 1881, 1901, and 1963 - each murder seemingly unrelated and separated by time. But what if those presidents were all killed for the same reason: a clause in the United States Constitution - contained within Article 1, Section 8 - that would shock Americans? This question is what faces former Justice Department operative Cotton Malone in his latest adventure. When a bold assassination attempt is made against President Danny Daniels in the heart of Manhattan, Malone risks his life to foil the killing....

    If you could sum up The Jefferson Key in three words, what would they be?

    Trust no one.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Cassiopeia Vitt was my favorite character because she was portrayed as a strong, cool-headed woman who could handle herself and not prone to letting her hormones take over where common sense should prevail. In fact, there were times in the story, that I thought she was going to do a double-cross. Does she? Well, listen and find out!


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    What is not to like. I buy audiobooks especially if Scott Brick is the performer. Next to Jim Dale, he is tops!


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

    Trust no one.


    Any additional comments?

    The historical information given in the story and summarized at the end was very interesting. It is one thing I enjoy with Steve Berry's works. You get a bit of an education as you go along.
