    Would you listen to Private: #1 Suspect again? Why?

    Perhaps, but I generally do not re-listen to books.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The story had numerous twists and turns which kept the readers interest. The plots were predictable, however.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Busting the van filled with drugs out of the warehouse.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions. I enjoyed the book but it wasn't a life changer.


    Any additional comments?

    I like James Patterson's writing but this wasn't his best. Not bad, but not his best.

    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.

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

    Absolutely. The Panther has the same plot thread as DeMilles'other John Cory stories but the sarcasim is all new.


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

    The plot isn't the best part of the book. It is being in the head of John Cory and participating in his sarcastic view of the situation. Although, the plot is well thought out and detailed.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    Outstanding!!!!! Scott Brick captures the characters perfectly and paints a picture in your mind.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Probaably when Cory el al decide there has been enough killing. An unusual soft side of Cory.


    Any additional comments?

    Read it!!!! Enjoy!!!

    A top nuclear scientist goes mad and takes an innocent family hostage at gunpoint, killing one and causing a massive standoff. A plume of radiation above New York City leads to a warehouse where, it seems, a powerful nuclear bomb was assembled just hours before. Sifting through the evidence, authorities determine that the unthinkable is about to happen: in ten days, a major American city will be vaporized by a terrorist attack.

    If you could sum up Gideon's Corpse in three words, what would they be?

    Darn good story


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Gideon is the main and most interesting character. He is brilliant and gets smarter as the plot unwinds.


    Have you listened to any of David W. Collins’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have not heard previous performances but he was very good in this one.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reactions, Just a fun read.

    Although his father had been reluctant to become a field operative, Jack Ryan Jr. wants nothing more. Privately training with a seasoned Special Forces drill instructor, he’s honing his skills to transition his work within The Campus from intelligence analysis to hunting down and eliminating terrorists wherever he can—even as Jack Ryan Sr. campaigns for re-election as President of the United States. But what neither father nor son knows is that the political and the personal have just become equally dangerous.

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

    Yes, if you like to follow the on-going saga of The Ryans.


    What other book might you compare Locked On to and why?

    Greaney's Grey Man series is similar. If you had read both authors, Greaney's influence was noticable.


    What three words best describe Lou Diamond Phillips’s voice?

    OK, not geat


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    It certainly kept my interest and of course set up the story line for the next book.


    Any additional comments?

    Looking forward to both Clancy's and Greaney's next books.
