    Best-selling author Brad Thor has crafted a must-read blockbuster featuring hard-nosed U.S. anti-terrorist agent Scot Harvath. Fiendish al-Qaeda terrorists are planning to rescue their imprisoned WMD expert during the chaos they create with their July 4th destruction of all bridges and tunnels to Manhattan. Now it's up to ex-SEAL Harvath to stop the evil-doers -- and neutralize the diabolical three-foot-tall villain known as "The Troll" who supplies their intelligence.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Private Berlin to be better than the print version?

    I have only listened the audio book, not able to compare. Probably should read so as to make the comparison.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Private Berlin?

    Many memorable moments, Cris' death in the slaughter house, spooky. The car chase scene was easy to visualize brought about by the many twists and turns in the story line. The Private Berlin office was graced with only a few moments of Jack Morgan expertise.


    What does January LaVoy and Ari Fliakos bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I can't say I'm crazy about the readers when comparing to other audio book readers. Maybe better choices available. Ms. LaVoy was not believable in the characters changes. Mr. Fliakos character was annoying, However, overall, did enjoy the audio book,


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    I would find any audio book difficult to listen to in one sitting, but did listen to often as I performed my exercise program.

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Hell's Corner to be better than the print version?

    Audio edition is excellent, have not read the book.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Hell's Corner?

    So many moments, hard to chose. With all the twists and turns probably the assignation attempt on the two Presidents lives.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listened to other performances and this just might be one of the best. I like the way they seem to interact with each other.


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

    An action thriller filled with twists and turns.

    Jack Ryan, the former president of the United States, is out of office, but not out of the loop about his brainchild, the “Campus” - a highly effective, counter-terrorism organization that operates outside the Washington hierarchy. But what Ryan doesn’t know is that his son, Jack Ryan, Jr., has joined his cousins, Brian and Dominic Caruso, at the shadowy Campus. While a highly effective analyst, young Ryan hungers for the action of a field agent.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Dead or Alive to be better than the print version?

    I have not read the book but may do so. Really enjoyed audio version, I have listened to twice.


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I like many of the characters but I think John Clark. He has matured but still able to provide those tense positive outcomes.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    There were many, but the probably would say John Ryan Jr.'s alertness leading to killing the assasin's attempt on his father.


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

    The moment that particularly moved me was the loss of one of the Caruso brothers.


    Any additional comments?

    Glad that I listened to twice, was able to pick up on some things that I missed the first time.

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....

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

  • God Wants You Happy: From Self-Help to God's Help

    In God Wants You Happy, Father Jonathan Morris replaces the unsatisfying, fleeting solutions we receive from the New Age self-help industry with the simplicity and depth of authentic Christian spirituality. In his work traveling the world for FOX News and in his parish work in New York City, Father Jonathan could not understand why people were choosing the vague and sometimes harmful advice of the self-help gurus and ignoring the tested and true help the Christian faith offers.
