    Long hailed as the grand master of adventure fiction, Clive Cussler has continued to astound with the intricate plotting and astonishing set pieces of his novels. Now, with a surprising twist, he gives us his most audacious work yet.

    Overall

    Cussler's books are predictably exciting. Like Louis L'amour, John Grisham and other authors, He has found a formula that works for him, and he sticks to it. As he has gotten older, his style has become more refined, and I like the more recent books over the early novels. If you are looking for an enjoyable listen to occupy your mind during "down" times, I suggest this (or any) or Clive's books.

  • The Professional: A Spenser Novel

    Story

    A knock on Spenser's office door can only mean one thing: a new case. This time the visitor is a local lawyer with an interesting story. Elizabeth Shaw specializes in wills and trusts at the Boston law firm of Shaw & Cartwright, and over the years she's developed a friendship with wives of very wealthy men. However, these rich wives have a mutual secret: they've all had an affair with a man named Gary Eisenhower- and now he's blackmailing them for money.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Professional to be better than the print version?

    The narrator made this book great, especially in his voice characterizations. His voice for the muscle, Boo, for example, is worth the price of the book, in my opinion. The one problem with the audio version is really caused by Parker's writing style: the number of the times the phrase "he said" and "she said" appears in this book is in the hundreds; and that number is obvious when the book is read aloud. Mantenga's performance, however, outweighs the aggravation caused by the "he said/she said" issue, in my opinion.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes. This is the third of Parker's books that I have read or listened two, and I have enjoyed the plots of all of them. I haven't finished this book yet, and I still don't know "who done it."


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Any scene with the mobster Boo... :). Also, the character Hawk has some funny lines, as always.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    I laughed out loud on a few occasions, and often listened with a smile on my face and an occasional chuckle. Very enjoyable book!

    Charles Mee, Jr. reproduces seven singular moments when heads of state have come together to decide the future of the world: Pope Leo and Attila the Hun; Henry VIII and Francis I; Cortes and Montezuma; Metternich and Talleyrand; Wilson, Clemenceau and Lloyd George; Churchill, Stalin and Roosevelt; and Gorbachev and the G7 nations.

    Brian says: "Very poor sound quality"
    "I am not sure about this book..."
    Overall

    I can't comment on the content of this book because the recording quality was SO poor that I never even made it through the first hour! I was very disappointed to waste a credit on this title, and I would encourage you not to make the same mistake.
