    In Leading from Behind, New York Times best-selling investigative journalist Richard Miniter presents the first book to explore President Obama’s abilities as a leader, by unearthing new details of his biggest successes and failures. Based on exclusive interviews and never-before-published material, Leading from Behind investigates the secret world of the West Wing and the combative personalities that shape historic events.

    Story

    This is a very excellent and compelling account of the inside story behind President Obama. It gives interesting information about many of the people who are running America. It sheds light on how they are handling the situations they are facing. There is an account of the inside workings of what happened before the Bin Laden raid. The author does an excellent job of narrating his book. All in all this is a very captivating and fair description of a real story and what is really happening. I highly recommend it!

    If society collapsed, could you survive? When Morgan Carter's car breaks down 250 miles from his home, he figures his weekend plans are ruined. But things are about to get much, much worse: the country's power grid has collapsed. There is no electricity, no running water, no Internet, and no way to know when normalcy will be restored - if it ever will be.

    As someone who is new to this category I have to say that this book is very good. It is a fast paced and interesting story, had great characters and gave out some good information. I also thought the narrator was very good and well suited for this book. I listened to all three books already, one right after the other, and really enjoyed each one very much. I wish the fourth book had been available because now it's hard to wait. I highly recommend this series for those who like books in this category.

    The recipient of Edgar, Anthony, and Macavity Awards, New York Times best-selling author C. J. Box has won almost every honor in his field. In Breaking Point, Wyoming game warden Joe Pickett is glad to catch up with old friend Lyle Pendergast, but then the man goes missing and is named a suspect in the death of two EPA employees. All signs point to Lyle’s guilt, but the more Joe digs into the case, the more he realizes he’s stepped into the middle of a deadly power play.

    The whole Joe Pickett series, from novel #1 through #13 was one of my favorites. All interesting stories, good characters and a very talented narrator. I stated at #1 and listened to all of them one right after another. I loved it. I'm only sorry that it ended..for now.

    C.J. Box’s Open Season is a rare debut mystery that “immediately sets itself apart from the crowd” (Booklist). This thrilling novel stars Joe Pickett, a game warden in Wyoming who finds his life in danger after he looks into a murder investigation and discovers a conspiracy involving an oil pipeline and its threat to an endangered species.

    Story

    I read both of Mr Box's "Cody Holt" novels and liked them so much that I decided to start on the "Joe Pickett" novels. This first book was so good that I've been listening non-stop to the rest of the series. Now I am up to book 7 and going strong. These stories keep my interest up. Each book ties into the next one very well. The narrator does a wonderful job. I highly recommend the whole "Joe Pickett" series.

    Is it possible that there exists an ancient mystery that holds the secret of America's future? That this mystery lies behind everything from 9/11 to the collapse of the global economy? That ancient harbingers of judgment are now manifesting in America? That God is sending America a prophetic message of what is yet to come? Before its end as a nation, there appeared in ancient Israel nine specific warnings and omens of national destruction - these same Nine Harbingers are now manifesting in America with profound ramifications.

    Story

    I usually don't listen to these types of books but this one caught my attention. After reading most of the reviews I decided no because I thought it was just going to preachify but then got it anyway out of curiosity. I'm glad I did. I found that it was very interesting and was read well. The main point I got out of this story was not about the events or dates as much as just a pure and simple reminder. This story is worth a listen.

    The irresistible David Freed’s first mystery is a stay-up-late-to-finish thriller. Based in sunny Rancho Bonita - “California’s Monaco”, as the city’s moneyed minions like to call it - Cordell Logan is a literate, sardonic flight instructor and aspiring Buddhist with dwindling savings and a shadowy past. When his beautiful ex-wife, Savannah, shows up out of the blue to tell him that her husband has been murdered in Los Angeles, Logan is quietly pleased. Savannah’s late husband, after all, is Arlo Echevarria, the man she left Logan for.

I really loved the narrator, Ray Porter, he is one of my very favorites and really added to this book. He totally brought this story to life. I am looking forward to the next book.

    Despite considerable press coverage and a lengthy trial, the full story of the Fundamentalist Church of Latter Day Saints has remained largely untold. Only one man can reveal the whole, astounding truth: Sam Brower, the private investigator who devoted years of his life to breaking open the secret practices of the FLDS and bringing Warren Jeffs and his inner circle to justice.

    Story

    This was one interesting and informative book. It is written by an private investigator who reveals his findings into the background of the break away Mormon cult group, the FLDS, and their perverted leader, Warren Jeffs. The book was written and read really well. This story helped me understand how this group of people got under the power of this horrible being called, Warren Jeffs, and all the previous perverted leaders of this demented cult. The sad thing is that even though Jeffs is now in jail. it is still, Business As Usual. Another really good expose story (with its extended history) to listen to is "Inside Scientology" by Janet Reitman, really good.

    I loved this book, along with all the others in the Joe Ledger series. Just like the others this book had all the fast paced action and the humorous wisecracks I have come to expect. The narrator, Ray Porter, is the best, he really helped make this book even better. I didn't want it to end. Now I have to wait again for the next book in the series to come out.

    This trilogy is my favorite thriller series. Level 26: Dark Revelations (the best and creepiest), Dark Prophecy and Dark Revelations. All three were fast paced page turners and had excellent narrators! It is best to listen to these stories in order. Even though I had already listened to the previous books I stated at the beginning again when this latest book was released (very good the second time around) The accompanying cyber-bridge videos (very well done) at Level 26 make these thriller stories come to life even more. If you are a fan of Mr Zuiker's CSI TV series, then you probably will like this trilogy. Can hardly wait for more!

    The List is a technothriller about a group of people who each have tattoos of numbers on the bottoms their feet, and don't know why. One of them, a Chicago Homicide cop named Tom Mankowski, has had one of these strange tattoos since birth. When he investigates a violent murder and discovers the victim also has a tattooed number, it sets the ball rolling for an adventure of historic proportions. To say more would give away too much.
