    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    What did you love best about Notorious Nineteen?

    I always enjoy her books - it's my "light" reading. I, like many, remained conflicted over which boyfriend is better (although it should be obvious), and it never ceases to amaze how many fixes she can get into and out of. Just fun!

    The most unlikely terrorist enemy of all now holds a knife against the country’s throat. With both diplomatic and conventional military options swept from the table, the president calls upon Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath to disable a brilliantly orchestrated conspiracy intended to bring the United States to its knees. Teamed with beautiful Russian Intelligence agent Alexandra Ivanova and a highly trained CIA paramilitary detachment, Harvath embarks on an adrenaline-fueled search that spans the world.

    The best-selling UFO book of 2007/2008 is revised and updated with even more hard-hitting eyewitness testimony of one of the most important events of all time: the actual recovery of a UFO outside of Roswell, New Mexico, in 1947. For more than 60 years, government authorities have led us to believe the wreckage was merely a very conventional weather balloon - but the witnesses who were there continue to tell a different story.

    Whether complete or only fragmentary, the 930 extant Dead Sea Scrolls irrevocably altered how we look at and understand the foundations of faith and religious practice. Now you can get a comprehensive introduction to this unique series of archaeological documents, and to scholars' evolving understanding of their authorship and significance, with these 24 lectures. Learn what the scrolls are, what they contain, and how the insights they offered into religious and ancient history came into focus.

    The American pianist Jonathan Biss is known to audiences throughout the world for his artistry, musical intelligence, and deeply felt interpretations. What is less known until now is that Jonathan Biss writes about music in a most compelling and engaging way. For anyone who has ever enjoyed a Beethoven concert or a Beethoven recording, or one of the many films about Beethoven, this audiobook is an inspiring listening experience.

    Unless you've been living under a rock for the past 50 years, you're aware of the many hypotheses that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not done by one man. Whether you've listened to one or a dozen of the audiobooks on this topic, there's no way to fully grasp the depth of this conspiracy. For the first time ever, New York Times best-selling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle - from the plot to the murder - of JFK.

    If you could sum up They Killed Our President in three words, what would they be?

    If you ever had any doubts, listen to how many inconsistencies, misquotes, and out right lies are exposed here. I thought I had heard it all, but I wasn't even close - don't miss listening to this book. It is important that we see how our views have been manipulated over the years. It is scary to know how many people have lost their lives over the secrets of the JFK assassination conspiracy too.


    Any additional comments?

    For listening purposes it was not fun to hear website references frequently mentioned - but many times I did look at the backup and the visual information was valuable in seeing first-hand what was being explained. But be prepared, it is easy to spend additional hours listening to auxiliary interviews and watching compelling videos.

    From the dark years of the UFO era, this amazing documentary details the facts they don't want you to know. UFOs are real and the government and military forces know it. These factions have researched and investigated sightings as early as the late 1930s, while simultaneously denying any interest in the UFO phenomenon. They have been debunking and covering up UFO sightings, crashes and incidents for decades.

    What would have made UFOs Do Not Exist! better?

    Who's bright idea was it to put background music behind the narrator. Made it very hard to hear and was distracting. I use the Audible App for my iPhone, but for some reason if the phone went to sleep the audio turned off (not so of any other book I've heard this way).

    The content was nothing earth shattering, all things I have heard before.

    The anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts one of the most dramatic stories in American history—how one gunshot changed the country forever. In the spring of 1865, the bloody saga of America's Civil War finally comes to an end after a series of increasingly harrowing battles. President Abraham Lincoln's generous terms for Robert E. Lee's surrender are devised to fulfill Lincoln's dream of healing a divided nation. But one man and his band of murderous accomplices are not appeased....

    If you like history, this takes tons of little tidbits from a myriad of sources about Lincoln's last days, and puts them together like a story. Very compelling.

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Absolutely! One of the most eye-opening books I have ever heard. I listened to it twice in three days and will do it again!!


    What did you like best about this story?

    It reads like fiction, but when you see how it pertains to today ... you will flip out! Amazing insights, amazing story.


    What about Jonathan Cahn’s performance did you like?

    I recommend that my friends listen to this book rather than read it because the author reading it obviously tends to put the emphasis on all the important places.


    What’s the most interesting tidbit you’ve picked up from this book?

    Too many to list. But did you know what the very first official act that our first president and congress did? It's in this book.


    Any additional comments?

    Do not put off reading this - it is important and too good to miss.
