    Story

    In Killing Rain, Rain has a new employer, the Mossad, which needs an operator who can remove 'problems' in Asia, and a new partner: Dox, the ex-marine sniper and party animal first introduced in Rain Storm. He also has a new hope, that by using his fearsome talents in the service of something good, he might atone for all the lives he has already taken.

    Amazon Customer says: "I give this book my highest rating."
    "Average Spy Novel"
    Overall

    While the narrator did a solid job, the story was simplistic. While you can distinquish the different voices this narrator needs to work on female voices.

    In general not a bad book but not to exciting for an action spy novel.

    Mario Puzo first answered the question 'What is a family?' with the creation of the Corleones in his landmark best seller The Godfather. Now, 30 years later, Puzo enriches us all with his ultimate vision of the subject: the story of the greatest crime family in Italian history, the Borgias.

    Javier says: "Dark and Intelligent"
    "Dark and Intelligent"
    Overall

    Puzo does a wonderful job describing the culture, the time, and the thoughts that governed the Church and Europe in those times. A great read if you are interested in this period of history [15th century]. Defintely a thin line between the mafia and the Pope.

    Lauren Stillwell isn't your average damsel in distress. When the NYPD cop discovers her husband leaving a hotel with another woman, she decides to beat him at his own game. But her revenge goes dangerously awry, and she finds her world spiraling into a hell that becomes more terrifying by the hour.

    Sarah says: "Implausible plot"
    "Simply Fantastic"
    Overall

    This is the book which made me a fan of James Patterson. This title was fast paced and full of surprises. Once I started listening I never stopped until I finished...on the same day.

    When Scat comes up with an idea for the hottest new soda ever, he's sure he'll retire as the next savvy marketing success story. But in the treacherous waters of corporate America, there are no sure things. Suddenly Scat finds himself scrambling to save not only his idea, but his yet-to-be-realized career. With the help of a scarily beautiful and brainy girl called 6, he sets out on a mission to reclaim the fame and fortune that, time and again, elude him.

    Kris says: "Perfect Satire"
    "Funny and Fast"
    Overall

    Syrup is a hip and all-around entertaining novel. While this book was fast paced it was un predictable and well written. This story will provide you a small taste of the corporate world and the line "and I'm homeless again" will have you laughing throughout the book.

    Judas Coyne is a collector of the macabre. But nothing he possesses is as unlikely or as dreadful as his latest discovery, a thing so terrible-strange, Jude can't help but reach for his wallet. For a thousand dollars, Jude will become the proud owner of a dead man's suit, said to be haunted by a restless spirit. But what UPS delivers to his door in a black heart-shaped box is no imaginary or metaphorical ghost. It's the real thing.

    Lesley says: "Yikes! Five stars for fright"
    "Joe Hill's Debut Thriller is a Success!"
    Overall

    The Heart-Shaped Box is a great ghost story, that will keep any listener in suspense. Joe Hill did a great job in providing characters that are well devloped and likeable. This audio book is certain to keep your head phones plugged on until the final chapter as ended.
