    Two centuries ago, without congressional or public debate, a president who is thought of today as peaceable, Thomas Jefferson, launched America's first war on foreign soil, a war against terror. The enemy was Muslim; the war was waged unconventionally, with commandos, native troops, and encrypted intelligence, and launched from foreign bases.

    Donald says: "A Great Read"

    Overall

    History, to many, is dull and dry, but not this reading. It takes a look at an often forgotten part of American History and brings it to life. The parallels to todays world are often uncanny. A great deal of background material is presented to flesh out the characters and their historical importance. After listening to the book I was left with that distinct feeling that our technology has changed in the last 200 years, however, as a nation, the actions and intents of elected officials has not.

    Jack Solomon is a messenger of death. Working in the fractured remains of Yugoslavia, his task is to identify the victims of ethnic cleansing and to tell families that their loved ones are never coming home.

    "Excellent mystery thriller"
    Overall

    I enjoyed the storyline and the narrator was excellent. There are lots of twists and turns in the plot to keep the listener interested and guessing until the very end. Descriptions of people and scenes were detailed; one could easily see the world the characters were in. I recommend this book as an excellent mystery thriller.

    Two-Dollar Bill delivers all the storytelling twists and whip-smart banter readers have come to love in Stuart Woods's thrillers. In this latest, Stone Barrington, the suave Manhattan cop-turned-lawyer, is back on his home turf facing down a brilliant Southern flimflam man.

    Bill says: "Wonderful example to Stuart Woods' books"
    "Don't waste your time or money"
    Overall

    This is a typical good cop/detective/bad-guy suspense thriller. There was nothing outstanding in the plot or characters. What made the listening almost intolerable was the reading by Tony Roberts. Mr. Roberts reading, well to be blunt, was awful. Most of the characters sound the same, as if from some B-grade mobster movie. The voices for the female characters sounded like something from Gone With the Wind. In some cases a character would start speaking with one voice and end up in another. I wanted to stop in the first five minutes, but kept listening hoping the plot would overcome the reading, it didn't.
