    Fresh from Afghanistan, James Bond has been recruited to a new agency. Conceived in the post-9/11 world, it operates independent of Five, Six and the MoD, its very existence deniable. Its aim: to protect the Realm, by any means necessary. The Night Action alert calls Bond from dinner with a beautiful woman. GCHQ has decrypted an electronic whisper about an attack scheduled for later in the week: casualties estimated in the thousands, British interests adversely affected.

    Story

    I love 007 in all his many guises and maybe that is why Deaver's new incarnation is as wonderful as Connery, Moore, Craig and all the others. I am used to "M" being male or female, Felix Leiter being white, black, alive, dead & alive again. I also love Deaver's style of writing & Toby Stephens telling of the tale. Stephens has a beautiful voice that is smooth as clotted cream, veddy, veddy upper crust Brit yet droll, stiff upper lip, as he recounts the gore & gristle. This book was even better than I already knew it would be. The story was gripping and just when I knew who the bad guy was...well just let me say, I was wrong. The bad guy was thoroughly creepy with a particular "love" that even I had not heard of. I also enjoyed the sub-plot of Jame's parents as it lays the framework for more books, I hope. I liked the descriptive detailing of the clothes, watches, tools, toys & guns. It added heft to the new creation of Bond. James is still very manly although more pc in his treatment & regard of women. He remains smart, sleek, tech savvy, sexy, a rogue and a pirate in Savile Row clothing. More, please.

    About three things I was certain. First, Edward was a vampire. Second, there was a part of him, and I didn't know how dominant that part might be, that thirsted for my blood. And third, I was unconditionally and irrevocably in love with him.

    Ilyana Kadushin does a bang up job of narrating this super series. I LOVE audio books and have come to appreciate the talent it takes to narrate, change voices and persona and so on, and to really make you feel like you are IN the book/story. I loved the books as I read them and I loved them equally as I listened to them. AAA+++

  • State of Fear

    Once again Michael Crichton gives us his trademark combination of page-turning suspense, cutting-edge technology, and extraordinary research. State of Fear is a superb blend of edge-of-your-seat suspense and thought provoking commentary on how information is manipulated in the modern world.

    Overall

    This is one of my all time favorite books. I thought that I knew all about Global Warning and discovered that I actually knew very little, not even what the term means. This is a well documented, yet fictional book. The characters are lively and very easy to believe. Don't miss Ted and his come-uppance. The murders are novel and the plot twists and turns with a very surprising end. It is what I think of as "a REALLY good read." I am also a big fan of audio books. The reader/narrator is wonderful. The skill and talent that it takes to "read" an audio-book is underrated. With as many characters as this book has, I always knew which person I was "hearing." I give this a two thumbs up!
