    The anomaly called the Breach is the government’s most carefully guarded secret. But there is another secret even less known... and far more terrifying. As the U.S. President addresses the nation fromthe Oval Office, a missile screams toward the White House. In a lightning flash, the Chief Executive is dead, his mansion in ruins, and two cryptic words are the only clue to the assassins’ motives: “See Scalar.” Now Travis Chase of the covert agency Tangent - caretakers of the Breach and all its grim wonders - have only twenty-four hours to unearth a decades-old mystery....

    This is my first time reading Patrick Lee. Deep Sky was an Audible Sale Pick, based on previous books I have read. And I was super surprised. Could not put it down. One of those gets you right from the beginning books. Which are my favorite. If you like Sci-Fi, intrigue, secrets from the past and the future, this one is for you. [Smile]

    In this all-new short story from #1 New York Times bestselling author David Baldacci, worlds collide when government assassin Will Robie is caught in the crossfire with Oliver Stone and the Camel Club. Will Robie is closing in on his next target when he finds himself in the middle of a bank heist - and he's taken hostage alongside Oliver Stone. But is this just a simple bank job, or are the robbers after something even more valuable - and dangerous - than the cash in the vault?

    Story

    I am a huge Baldacci fan, from way back, and have enjoyed most of his books. But for some reason I could not get into the Camel Club. Years later, after reading several Will Robbie books come this crossover book.

    It has an immediate start that gets my attention, the way I like for a book to start, and I enjoyed it thoroughly. Guess it's time to revisit the Camel Club. [Smile]

    Particle physicist Jon Grady is ecstatic when his team achieves what they've been working toward for years: A device that can reflect gravity. Their research will revolutionize the field of physics - the crowning achievement of a career. Grady expects widespread acclaim for his entire team. The Nobel Prize. Instead, his lab is locked down by a shadowy organization whose mission is to prevent at all costs the social upheaval sudden technological advances bring.

    Story

    I really enjoyed Influx by Daniel Suarez. Enough to take a look at some of his other books. Daemon is next on my list.

    This story starts right away, fast, which is the way I like it. Not action fast like a James Bond movie, but fast in that the author does not waste any time getting to the story. Character development progresses with the story line. As opposed to trying to get it all done on the front end.

    It dragged a little in the middle. And the torture scene was realistic, disturbing, heartfelt and painful (no pun intended) all at the same time, and difficult to get through. But after that the story and the characters had me. Couldn't put it down.

    Take a listen and I hope you too enjoy Influx. [Smile]

    Why we think it’s a great listen: It’s easy to say that when it comes to sci-fi you either love it or you hate it. But with Ender’s Game, it seems to be you either love it or you love it.... The war with the Buggers has been raging for a hundred years, and the quest for the perfect general has been underway for almost as long. Enter Andrew "Ender" Wiggin, the result of decades of genetic experimentation.

    WOW! What a great story. 20th Anniversary. How I could have missed this one? I am going to read the whole series. This first book, Enders Game, was well written, with great characters, and masterfully narrated by different voices. What a treat. No need to say any more. Just get it and enjoy! [Smile]

    Max - an elderly Paris bookstall owner - is abducted at gunpoint. His friend Hugo Marston, head of security at the U.S. embassy, launches a search. His investigation reveals that Max was a Holocaust survivor and later became a Nazi hunter. Is his disappearance somehow tied to his grim history, or even to the mysterious old books he sold? Before long, other booksellers start to disappear, their bodies found floating in the Seine. Then Marston himself becomes a target of the unknown assassins.

    I enjoyed the Bookseller. My first time reading this author.
    Hugo and his counterparts made for a good team and
    story. It just moved a little slow.

    If you enjoy a book that takes its time getting there,
    then this will be a nice leisure, read. Nice and tidy
    wrap up at the end. With just some minor twists.

    Yes, I will read the next, when\if available. [Smile]

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Story

    First, I am a BIG Nelson Demille and John Corey FAN. I enjoyed Lion's Game, but thought the sequel, The Lion, was not as good. With the Panther John & Kate have a new nemesis, the Panther, and he is a good bad guy.

    I really enjoyed this book, and think Scott Brick's narration is spot on. The addition of familiar characters like Brenner, from Up Country, and references to encounters in previous books, like Wild Fire (one of my favorite Demille books), made the book even more enjoyable.

    On the flip side, the Panther, Bulus ibn al-Darwish's name is mentioned over and over and over again throughout the book. This repetition was annoying.

    Too, while I REALLY enjoy John Corey's quips and sense of humor, it was unclear sometimes what he was really saying, and what he was just thinking. I do not think this was a narration issue.

    Final analysis if you enjoyed Lion's Game, and Wild Fire you will equally enjoy the Panther. I know I did.

    In what may be her most unsettling novel to date, Sue Grafton's T Is for Trespass is also her most direct confrontation with the forces of evil. Beginning slowly with the day-to-day life of a private eye, Grafton suddenly shifts from the voice of Kinsey Millhone to that of Solana Rojas, introducing listeners to a chilling sociopath. Rojas is not her birth name. It is an identity she cunningly stole, an identity that gives her access to private caregiving jobs.

    It has been some time since I have read \ listened to a Sue Grafton Novel. I enjoy her characters and the narrator. I always appreciate when a continuing story author sticks with the same reader.

    At some point in the past I switched from Grafton's Abridged stories to Unabridged. I did not make the connection at the time but slowly became disinterested and stopped listening. I returned to the Abridged versions with T is for Trespass got hooked again. I and am excited to return to and finish this entertaining series.

    Harry Bosch has been given three years before he must retire from the LAPD, and he wants cases more fiercely than ever. In one morning, he gets two. DNA from a 1989 rape and murder matches a 29-year-old convicted rapist. Was he an eight-year-old killer, or has something gone terribly wrong in the new Regional Crime Lab? Then Bosch and his partner are called to a death scene fraught with internal politics....

    Story

    Michael Connelly is a superb author, Harry Bosch is one of my favorite detectives, and Len Cariou has the voice to bring it all together. I have read all of the Bosch and Lincoln Lawyer stories. And have enjoyed them all to varying degrees.

    But, this time Connely has outdone himself with a great DOUBLE story\case for Bosch that includes a relatively new partner, a brand new romance, plus the return of old friends, and older enemies. Often authors can get stale with reocurring characters. Not here. Bosch is on the case with fresh eyes and the supporting cast are all equally engaging.

    Each of the characters, including Bosch, undergo change, are in transition, evolving, growing, and this matches perfectly with the storyline, which ends with a combination of both answers and questions about our characters and their futures.

    This is not a cliffhanger. Instead you leave wanting more; excited for the next novel to begin. Thoroughly enjoyable. Can't wait for the next one.

    LAPD Detective Harry Bosch tackles three tough cases that span a legendary career in this never-before-collected trio of stories. Utterly unputdownable, they are proof that "Connelly never stops doling out the suspense.... Once it grabs you in those first few pages, it won't let go of you" (Boston Globe).

    As I mentioned in my review of Suicide Run, I'm a BIG fan of MC (Author), HB (Character) and LC (Narrator). Another triple play \ triple treat of Harry Bosch in a short format. The price is right for a quick read when you are in between monthly credits. [Smile]

    Can't wait for the new book, previewed at the end of this book. Harry is on the case!

    Here is LAPD Detective Harry Bosch as we've never seen him before, in three never-before-collected stories. In "Suicide Run", the apparent suicide of a beautiful young starlet turns out to be much more sinister than it seems. In "Cielo Azul", Bosch is haunted by a long-ago closed case: the murder of a teenage girl who was never identified. In "One Dollar Jackpot", Bosch works the murder of a professional poker player whose skills have made her more than one enemy.
