    When a county employee is found shot to death in sun-drenched daylight while sitting in his county road grader, Undersheriff Bill Gastner is faced with puzzling questions. The simplest explanation - that an errant bullet from a careless target shooter’s rifle blew out Larry Zipoli’s brains - is soon discarded as inconsistencies surface. The fatal bullet shows no rifling marks, and investigation shows that the shooter walked directly toward the road grader, in full view of the victim - who did nothing to defend himself.

    In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure, a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of deadly virus.

    Would you consider the audio edition of Black Wind to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the book, yet. I just hope the book is as good as the audio!


    What did you like best about this story?

    They really kept me guessing about what was killing off everyone. I really liked that this one was more about Dirk Jr. And Summer. Of course Dirk Sr. Made an appearance later in the story.


    Which character – as performed by Scott Brick – was your favorite?

    Summer. If I were younger she would be to look up to.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.


    Any additional comments?

    I like the character that was given Clive Cussler's name!! The narration was excellent. The pace was appropriate for what was happening at the time.

    Midnight Louie goes along when PR whiz Temple Barr and her fiancé, rising media star Matt Devine, head to Chicago so she can meet his family. Matt's mother has a tragic past primed to rise and bite anybody in reach. When Louie is snatched, the catnapping's surprising motive loops back to Vegas and a string of unsolved murders connected to magic...and ex-magician Max Kinsella, Temple's former significant other. A skeptical homicide lieutenant has commissioned Max to investigate the cold case murder she suspects he committed. With amnesia from a recent attempt on his life, Max is more sitting duck than predator.

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

    Overall yes. I have enjoyed all the Cat in series. While not one of her best, it was still ah god read.


    What was the most interesting aspect of this story? The least interesting?

    As always, how she gets into these messes. Mrs Rosenblatt is not one of my favorite characters.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    Didn't have a favorite scene.


    Could you see Cat in a White Tie and Tails being made into a movie or a TV series? Who should the stars be?

    Under certain circumstances I could see a movie.

    When she was unjustly fired from a clandestine government laboratory, microbiologist Hallie Leland swore she would never look back. But she can’t ignore an urgent summons from the White House to reenter the realm of cutting-edge science and dangerous secrets. "Potentially the worst threat since Pearl Harbor” is how the president describes a mysterious epidemic killing American soldiers in Afghanistan - and now poised for outbreak in the States and beyond.

    Would you try another book from James M. Tabor and/or Paul Michael?

    Yes I would try another book by either of these authors.


    What other book might you compare The Deep Zone to and why?

    Can't think of a book, but there was a movie. Very closely resembling the premise.


    What does Paul Michael bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    The voice stress he used was very helpful in making the urgency come through.


    Do you think The Deep Zone needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    It could have a follow -up if it was drone right. I 'm generally not fond of foloe -ups, but this could be an exception

    The year is 2540, and two powers loom large in the Galaxy - Earth and Draconia. After years of peace, their spaceships are now being mysteriously attacked and cargoes rifled. Each suspects the other, and full-scale war seems unavoidable. The Doctor, accused of being a Draconian spy, is thrown into prison. And only when the Master appears on the scene do things really begin to move.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    I could recommend this book. It is a nice Doctor Who story. Quite enjoyable. But, I like almost anything Doctor Who. The story line was in character with Doctor Who stories. The villins were well done . I never expected who the real villin was.


    Would you recommend Doctor Who and the Space War to your friends? Why or why not?

    Overall I would recommend it. It is a pretty well developed Doctor Who story.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Geoffrey Beevers?

    If I found the premise interesting enough, yes I would.


    Do you think Doctor Who and the Space War needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Not really. I very seldom find follow-up books to be as interesting as the original book,

    It is the greatest advance in American defense technology in decades - an attack submarine capable of incredible underwater speeds. Nothing else in any other nation’s naval arsenal even comes close. There is only one problem: A key element of the prototype is missing - and the man who developed it is dead. At the same time, ships have started vanishing mid-ocean, usually never to be found again, but when they are, sometimes bodies are found aboard... burned to a crisp.

    What made the experience of listening to Poseidon's Arrow the most enjoyable?

    This book is really good. I like CliveCussler books any way but I really enjoyed the character development and that there were no loose ends at the end of the book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Poseidon's Arrow?

    When Pitt was escaping from the prison. Can't say too much without giving away too much.


    What about Scott Brick’s performance did you like?

    The characters were easy to tell apart. Things didn't drag. A good pace to keep up with things without having to rewind to catch up. Was not disappointed with Mr.Bricks performance.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes.

    They first appear as a series of dots on astronomical plates, heading from Saturn directly toward Earth. Since the ringed planet carries no life, scientists deduce the mysterious ship to be a visitor from another star. The world's frantic efforts to signal the aliens go unanswered. The first contact is hostile: the invaders blast a Soviet space station, seize the survivors, and then destroy every dam and installation on Earth with a hail of asteriods.

    What did you like best about Footfall? What did you like least?

    The concept for the book was interesting. The character development was quite good. The aliens were hard to understend at first, but you will become used to it and be able to keep up with what's going on.


    What other book might you compare Footfall to and why?

    war of the worlds, the original book. It too was a book about the invasion of earth. Footfall was different in that the author let us into the mind of the aliens.


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Overall yes. There were times when it seemed to drag abit.


    Do you think Footfall needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Maybe. I generally don't like followup books because they have a habit of not living up to the original

The Rockhopper is nearing the end of its current mission cycle, and everyone is desperate for some much-needed R & R, when startling news arrives from Saturn: Janus, one of Saturn's ice moons, has inexplicably left its natural orbit and is now heading out of the solar system at high speed.

    I really ejoyrd this book. The narrator did good job with the character voices. The charactor development was excellant. The only thing I found I didn't like was the increase of bad language as the book went along. I realize that this is a personal choice, I would have liked to know before I bought it.
