    Bonnie and Clyde, they thought. And what's-his-name, the sidekick. Three teenagers with dead-end lives, and chips on their shoulders, and guns. The first person they killed was a highway patrolman. The second was a woman during a robbery. Then, hell, why not keep on going? As their crime spree cuts a swath through rural Minnesota, some of it captured on the killers' cell phones and sent to a local television station, Bureau of Criminal Apprehension investigator Virgil Flowers joins the growing army of cops trying to run them down.

    What could John Sandford have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Cut back on Sanford's meds and remind him what a GREAT character he invented to start a new series for us to enjoy.


    What three words best describe Eric Conger’s performance?

    Great as always.


    Was Mad River worth the listening time?

    Of course. How can you turn down Lucas Davenport (the Prey series) or Virgil Flowers' books!


    Any additional comments?

    I am a Devout Sanford reader. I have read all of his books a minimum of 3 times (usually more after all these years). I wait impatiently for his new releases. Unfortunately, I think Sanford is tiring out. Mad River felt as if it were a must 'write book', not one that Sanford really cared about. I know Lucas Davenport is getting long in the tooth, but Hey(!) don't give up on Virgil Flowers. He still has lots of spunk (lol), character and personality to last. To make this short: I waited a long time for the book and was sorely disappointed.

    The adventure begins with the wreckage of a sunken Nazi submarine and a shocking legacy of Hitler's quest for Atlantis. Archaeologist Conrad Yeats discovers in the ruins of the Third Reich the key to an ancient conspiracy that reaches the highest levels of every major government. Suddenly Yeats is plunged into a deadly race across the Mediterranean, hunted by the assassins of an international organization that will stop at nothing to ignite global Armageddon.

    In the heart of North Carolina's Research Triangle stands a corporate laboratory much like the others nearby. But behind its walls, America's top scientists work around the clock to attain the holy grail of the 21st century - a supercomputer that surpasses the power of the human mind.

    Would you try another book from Greg Iles and/or Dick Hill?

    I have enjoyed many Greg Iles books and LOVE Dick Hill's narrations of everything!


    What could Greg Iles have done to make this a more enjoyable book for you?

    Make it shorter, left out the ending.


    Which character – as performed by Dick Hill – was your favorite?

    Dick Hill


    Could you see The Footprints of God being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    NO


    Any additional comments?

    I am so disappointed Mr. Isles. I agreed with your speech after the ending but even that came up short. I wish to be entertained not read someone's dissertation on what is God, Who created Him and How. The ideas intrigued me but wrong place wrong time : )

    This is a dangerous tale of times past... a love story full of deep seduction. A story of terrible longing and bold sacrifice. Then as now, evil begins its courtship cloaked in light. And the heart embraces what it should flee, forgetting it once had a truer lover. With a kiss, evil will ravage body, soul, and mind. Yet there remains hope, because the heart knows no bounds.

    What disappointed you about Immanuel's Veins?

    I was just getting to know Decker's writing, and here he goes getting lazy and leaning soooo heavily on Dracula he should be ashamed. I would not have expected this from Ted Decker.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Ted Dekker again?

    Yes...only because I already have.


    Which character – as performed by Chris Andrews – was your favorite?

    Tomar, only because you asked. Thank goodness for Chris Andrews or I would have never finished listening.


    What character would you cut from Immanuel's Veins?

    If I could be sure who it was, Immanuel.
