    Kendall Deaton pulls herself and her baby out of a wrecked car, and a mixture of courage and fear gets her to the top of a ravine, where she flags down help. But she doesn't dare reveal her true identity to the authorities. Instead, she plans her immediate escape. Her perilous flight begins.

    "so trite"
    Overall

    One of the worst books I've listened to. The narrator's voice of the main character is horribly simpy. The story is mainly predictable and boring.

    Will Robie is a master of killing. A highly skilled assassin, Robie is the man the U.S. government calls on to eliminate the worst of the worst - enemies of the state, monsters committed to harming untold numbers of innocent victims.No one else can match Robie's talents as a hitman...no one, except Jessica Reel. A fellow assassin, equally professional and dangerous, Reel is every bit as lethal as Robie. And now, she's gone rogue, turning her gun sights on other members of their agency.

    This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?

    Predictable and irritating narrators. If you want to read how someone is going to 'gun up,' then this might be for you.

    his most powerful and intricately-plotted novel yet. Thirteen year-old Johnny Merrimon had the perfect life: happy parents and a twin sister that meant the world to him. But Alyssa went missing a year ago, stolen off the side of a lonely street with only one witness to the crime. His family shattered, his sister presumed dead, Johnny risks everything to explore the dark side of his hometown in a last, desperate search.

    Christine says: "Stick With It!"
    "Predictable, boring"
    Overall

    What's with the good reviews? The book was predictable, boring and accompanied by the smarmy, irritating narrator. Ugh. One of the worst books I've listened to (my Audible library has over 250 books).

    Sam Capra is living the life of his dreams. He's a brilliant young CIA agent, stationed in London. His wife Lucy is seven months pregnant with their first child. They have a wonderful home, and are deeply in love. They have everything they could hope for... until they lose it all in one horrifying moment.

    Laurie says: "Close, but not quite"
    "Horrible book..."
    Overall

    I made a mistake, I thought this was written for adults. Your 7th grader might like it since no cuss words are used- instead the author literally writes 'bad words.' Ugh.. Tediously full of - I've got to find my family! I've got to find my family! The book is so namby-pamby. If you like a simpleton who does improbable things with a transparent plot line, go for it. I got it based on some reviews and it's one of the few of the hundreds of Audible books I've downloaded where I felt like throwing my iphone on the wall. The narrator doesn't help - he makes the dumb book even dumber.

    Marty Kalish is a young man suffocating in the heat of an affair with a married woman named Rachel. When Rachel's husband disappears one night, Marty is one of the first to be questioned. With few likely suspects, the police arrest him for murder. We want him to be innocent, but the more he tells us, the more we fear he is guilty. And as the twists and turns of the plot unfold, we can't be completely sure.

    Cynthia says: "Outstanding!"
    "Horrible narrator! Terrible book!"
    Overall

    Listening to his (he he) overactive voice drove me crazy.
    The writing was stupid...Rachel...Rachel...Rachel....is this supposed to be an award winner. How depressing.

    In Paris, a ruthless descendant of Napoleon has risen to power, hell-bent on restoring France's former glory. His fiery ambitions are cynically stoked by a coterie of cold-blooded Mandarins, plotting behind the gates of Beijing's Forbidden City. Cloaked in secrecy, this unholy alliance devises a twisted global plan, backed by China's growing nuclear arsenal, that will send America and the world to the brink of a gut-wrenching showdown.

    Peter Flynn says: "Bond lives on!"
    "Narrator is perfect"
    Overall

    The story line is non-stop and the characters are interesting. The narrator is fantastic - I can't believe I haven't come across him before. His narration makes the story leap from the page, so to speak.

    Thomas Bolden grew up on the streets, his childhood a blur of fragmented memories. But now he's managed to put his past behind him, find the woman he wants to share his life with, and carve out a successful career on Wall Street. Until, in the blink of an eye, his world is turned upside down. A bizarre kidnapping sends him fleeing for his life, his face everywhere on the TV news, and a violent, shadowy organization is framing him for crimes he did not commit.

    It was hard to follow this story with the horrible monotone of the narrator. I'll never listen to this narrator again.

    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Paul says: "Stunning Tale. Great Narration."

    Interesting insights into WWII Russia, with wonderful characters. Narration excellent.

The only person she can trust is her daughter, Ruth, a young single mother struggling with her own demons. Now Sally must tell her daughter the truth: She is actually Eva Delectorskaya, a Russian émigré recruited for the British Secret Service in 1939.
