    Six shots. Five dead. One heartland city thrown into a state of terror. But within hours the cops have it solved: a slam-dunk case. Except for one thing. The accused man says: "You got the wrong guy". Then he says: "Get Reacher for me". And sure enough, from the world he lives in - no phone, no address, no commitments - ex-military investigator Jack Reacher is coming. In Lee Child's astonishing thriller, Reacher's arrival will change everything - about a case that isn't what it seems, about lives tangled in baffling ways, about a killer who missed one shot - and by doing so gives Jack Reacher one shot at the truth.

    Carol says: "Reacher said..."
    "Hard to pause."
    Overall

    Great story! Moving along well. The Jack Reacher character is getting bolder and more arrogant but remains believable. The narrator is good but his female voices are pitiful.
    Overall worth a credit.

    Drafted against her will to become a "Sparrow" - a trained seductress in the service, Russian intelligence officer Dominika Egorova is assigned to operate against Nathaniel Nash, a first-tour CIA officer who handles the CIA's most sensitive penetration of Russian intelligence. The two young intelligence officers, trained in their respective spy schools, collide in a charged atmosphere of tradecraft, deception, and inevitably, a forbidden spiral of carnal attraction that threatens their careers and the security of America's valuable mole in Moscow.

    Story

    This is a very well written book. The plot has lots of twists and turns to keep one hooked. The characters are well developed and believable. I was amazed at the "spycraft" going on in the Intelligence world and obviously this is just the tip of the iceberg which was written about. To my surprise and delight, it appears Mr Matthews also enjoys the culinary world and each chapter was ended with a short, concise recipe of a dish one of the characters had enjoyed. I was horrified at the end of the book searching for the sequel to find that this is Mr Matthews only book and can only be consoled that a sequel and even more hopefully a series will emerge from this book, given the cliffhanger ending. I think the narrator did a fine job as well.

    Before Liz Lemon, before "Weekend Update," before "Sarah Palin," Tina Fey was just a young girl with a dream: a recurring stress dream that she was being chased through a local airport by her middle-school gym teacher. She also had a dream that one day she would be a comedian on TV. She has seen both these dreams come true. At last, Tina Fey's story can be told....

    Listening to this put me in such a good mood, that when I was driving and someone gave me the finger (undeserved I might add ), I gave her a "thumbs up" sign!!!
    I would pay money to be a fly on the wall when she goes through menopause!!

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    OK, so this is not Lee Child, but the storyline is entertaining, and fast moving. As usual, Dick Hill is brilliant.
    Worth a listen.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Annie M. says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "Do not miss this one!"
    Overall

    This is an incredibly well written book. The mind blowing facts of the POW enslavement by the Japanese and the resulting emotional turmoill was masterfully blended in this book. At times it was painful to listen to the incredible suffering and it haunted my dreams. What was so well done was the utmost respect portrayed by the author for all who was involved - even the Japanese. This is one of the best books I have ever come across.

    John Wells is the only American CIA agent ever to penetrate al Qaeda. Since before the attacks in 2001, Wells has been hiding in the mountains of Pakistan, biding his time, building his cover.

    Margaret says: "Faithful Spy"
    "Not bad, but not good either."
    Overall

    I like espionage thrillers and read all of Vince Flynn's books, who incidently recommended this book. All I can say is that he can learn from Flynn as how to keep suspense going. I could not stop listening to the Flynn series, and it took me about two weeks to finish this one as I lost interest along the way. The narrator was just OK.

    Four years ago, assassin Court Gentry was betrayed by his handlers in the CIA. Now, an old comrade returns to haunt him - and to force him on a mission against his will. With his ruthless employers on one side, his former friends on the other, and a doomed mission ahead, Court Gentry would kill to get out of this one alive.

    Clayton says: "really impressive"
    "The fizzle is gone"
    Overall

    This book is not nearly as enjoyable as " The Gray man". The assassin is depicted here as uncertain and drug addicted. Foul language is abound in this book which is unfortunate and was not present in the first book. I now have to screen where I listen to this book. Ended on a cliff hanger, so hopefully the next one will be better.
