    New York Times best-selling author Stephen Hunter is back with another breakneck thriller, in which ex-Marine sniper, Ray Kruz, must outwit a group of murderous Somali terrorists who’ve laid siege to the Mall of America. Recently retired marine sergeant Ray Kruz has been talked into a mall trip by his fiancé, the beautiful Molly Chan. For Ray, Molly represents a way to reconnect with normal life, something his 20 years in the service and five tours in two combat zones have prevented.

    If you could sum up Soft Target in three words, what would they be?

    Not typical Hunter.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stephen Hunter? Why or why not?

    I will continue to read Hunter. He is usually very dependably entertaing.


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

    Don't expect vintage Hunter.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the plot. I wish the ending had been a little more satisfying. I grew to dislike the police commander and his bootlicker worse than the terrorists. I finished the book frustrated.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: A performance so poignant, we gave Bronson Pinchot (yes, Balki from Perfect Strangers) our inaugural Narrator of the Year award.... In the monsoon season of 1968-69 at a fire support base called Matterhorn, located in the remote mountains of Vietnam, a young and ambitious Marine lieutenant wants to command a company to further his civilian political ambitions. But two people stand in his way.

    If you could sum up Matterhorn in three words, what would they be?

    Truly refreshingly honest.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    J-Hawk


    Have you listened to any of Bronson Pinchot’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not, however, this was one of the best performances I have heard.


    Who was the most memorable character of Matterhorn and why?

    All the characters are memorable. The doubts, fears, and motivations were absolutely on point. This is the first book I have ever read/heard that is truly honest about the subject.


    Any additional comments?

    The very best book I have ever read/or heard about the reality of what goes through a leader's mind during life threatening combat situations. Should be required reading for young warriors and police officers.

    From the depths of the Indian Ocean, a horrific plague has arisen to devastate humankind - a disease that's unknown, unstoppable, and deadly. But it is merely a harbinger of the doom that is to follow. Aboard a cruise liner transformed into a makeshift hospital, Dr. Lisa Cummings and Monk Kokkalis, operatives of SIGMA Force, search for answers to the bizarre affliction. But there are others with far less altruistic intentions.

    JoAnn Marcon says: "A fun book"
    "A shame..."

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    No, probably not. I enjoy the characters but things keep getting farther fetched. I really wish Rollins would have someone with some weapons and combat expertise collaborate with him. I suffered through the next two books and they got worse.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Killing Lincoln


    Would you be willing to try another one of Peter J. Fernandez’s performances?

    I did. Sloppy.


    Was The Judas Strain worth the listening time?

    Not really.


    Any additional comments?

    It's a shame that these books have gotten more and more washed out. It seems that they have become rushed to meet a dealine or fulfil a contract. Small details can really ruin what would otherwise be a good book and the attention to detail has really been lacking.
