    Lt. Col. Jon Smith, an army research doctor and secret agent attached to Covert-One, is tapped to lead a team to Wednesday Island, an icy patch of land between the northern coast of Canada and the Earth's magnetic Pole. There, the remains of a mysterious plane were discovered during a routine educational expedition. The plane seems to be a Russian spy plane, and the Russian government secretly revealed to the U.S. president that a lot of very dangerous anthrax may be on board.

    The Arctic Event is top notch. I hope the writer will pick up the torch and continue the series. The characters become more alive than in any of the previous Covert One books. The reader does a fine job from beginning to end.

    "The Book Case" is a story that features Nelson DeMille's most famous (and successful) character, Detective John Corey, who has appeared in six DeMille novels: Plum Island, The Lion's Game, Night Fall, Wild Fire, and The Lion. In this story, we see John Corey in his early years as an NYPD Detective, before he became involved with the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force.

    Would you say that listening to this book was time well-spent? Why or why not?

    The story integing and fast paced which made it an enjoyable listen


    Would you be willing to try another book from Nelson DeMille? Why or why not?

    DeMille is one of my favorites and I anxiously await his next book.


    Have you listened to any of Scott Brick???s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I've listened to dozens of Scott Brick's performances and as usual his reading is outstanding.


    If this book were a movie would you go see it?

    No, as a short story, with no other characters there was not enough substance.


    Any additional comments?

    The book is much more like going to a crime scene with John Corey than a more traditional story. It is much more like an appetizer than a meal leaving the reader hungry for more.

    Young, idealistic, and overworked, Jonah is living the lonely life of a medical student in New York City when he accidentally stumbles across a murder in progress: a woman, being stabbed to death in the middle of the sidewalk. Without thinking, he rushes in to protect her, inadvertently killing her attacker in the process. Thrust into the media spotlight, crushed by guilt, Jonah quickly learns that heroism isn't all it's cracked up to be.

    Susie says: "Too realistic for me."
    "Disappointing"
    Overall

    It sounded interesting and it had my favorite reader Scott Brick but I could not make it through the entire book. I quite at the close of book 1. I became more uncomfortable the longer I listened. The sexual violence described is not for everyone. It became torture to continue listening.

    In Robert Ludlum's ground-breaking career, no other character so captured the world's imagination as Jason Bourne. He appeared in three of Robert Ludlum's own best-selling novels, his best-selling works to this day. Now, with the major motion picture adaptation of Ludlum's The Bourne Supremacy, the Ludlum estate has finally acceded to the demands of readers around the world, turning to best-selling writer Eric Van Lustbader to create a brand new Jason Bourne novel, The Bourne Legacy.

    Linda says: "It sure reads like a Ludlum book!"
    "The Bourne Legacy"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the Bourne Legacy as much as any of the other Ludlum Bourne novels. The character development of Bourne adds a dimension to this thriller that makes this a truly enjoyable book. And of course the reader, Scott Brick, is great as always.
