    Widely recognized as the master of the historical spy novel, New York Times best-selling author Alan Furst takes listeners back to the early days of World War II for a dramatic novel of intrigue and suspense.

    Theresa says: "Chilling..Fantastic"
    "Furst's best"
    Overall

    This was the first Furst book I "read" and it is the best of the bunch, I believe. He is a brillant writer and Night Soldiers is incredible. Well worth it.

    Raybould Marsh is a British secret agent in the early days of World War II, haunted by something strange he saw on a mission during the Spanish Civil War: a German woman with wires going into her head who looked at him as if she knew him. It wasn’t his imagination; the wired woman can see into the future and use her knowledge to twist the present. In fact, Marsh soon discovers that the Nazis are running missions with people who have special powers....

    This book is disturbing, and incomplete. I get that it is supposed to be a series, but it should at least offer a full story. And the unnecessary brutality toward children and human kind in general is simply disturbing.

    Under a clear blue September sky, America's financial center in lower Manhattan became the site of the largest, deadliest terrorist attack in the nation's history. It was September 16, 1920. Four hundred people were killed or injured. The country was appalled by the magnitude and savagery of the incomprehensible attack, which remains unsolved to this day.The bomb that devastated Wall Street in 1920 explodes in the opening pages of The Death Instinct, Jed Rubenfeld's provocative and mesmerizing new novel.

    Story

    The writing, the plot, the narration - they were all working for this story and I really wanted to like it. But I found one of the heros, Younger, to be a complete cad, a violent, nasty, overbearing snob. He detracted from every scene he was in. Leave me Colette, Livermore, and Luc, but take that Younger out.

    A witty, intelligent, and delectable mystery from Georgette Heyer. This British "cozy" mystery has eccentric characters, sparkling dialogue, and an intricate plot that is just plain fun. Take one rambling country house whose owner is found dead, supposedly poisoned. Add one ill-assorted family circle of very odd people, all with excellent motives for murder.

    A fun detective story in the old style of murder in an English mansion, with great twists and delightful characters. There is also a sweet undercurrent of romance and wonderful dialogue.

    The Devil comes to Moscow, but he isn't all bad; Pontius Pilate sentences a charismatic leader to his death, but yearns for redemption; and a writer tries to destroy his greatest tale, but discovers that manuscripts don't burn. Multi-layered and entrancing, blending sharp satire with glorious fantasy, The Master and Margarita is ceaselessly inventive and profoundly moving. In its imaginative freedom and raising of eternal human concerns, it is one of the world's great novels.

    Kate Moore is a working mother, struggling to make ends meet, to raise children, to keep a spark in her marriage... and to maintain an increasingly unbearable life-defining secret. So when her husband is offered a lucrative job in Luxembourg, she jumps at the chance to leave behind her double-life, to start anew. She begins to reinvent herself as an expat, finding her way in a language she doesn’t speak, doing the housewifely things she’s never before done - playdates and coffee mornings, daily cooking and never-ending laundry....

    What made the experience of listening to The Expats the most enjoyable?

    The writing and the narration was great. Pavone's attention to detail and great dialogue, as well as the back and forth between the past, present, and future, kept me hooked till the end.


    What did you like best about this story?

    The dialogue and the heroine, Kate. The details about expat life were fabulous...I have lived abroad for most of my adult life and, while it is not as exciting as in the book, I definitely noticed things I could relate to.

    The plot was also well thought out and crafted.


    Which character – as performed by Mozhan Marno – was your favorite?

    Kate was my favorite.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Too many secrets.


    Any additional comments?

    I was not crazy about the ending. The build up was so great, and I loved the final confrontation...not sure how it should have ended, but I was a bit disappointed in the way it did. That is the only reason I am giving it a four instead of five stars.

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

    No, unfortunately not. The writing is great, but the plot is not. I love Robert Harris, especially his historical novels, but this is one of his weakest.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Hot Money, Dick Francis


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

    He really brought the tension alive.


    Do you think The Fear Index needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    Perhaps. It might work better as a series. This one was just thin.

    Overall

    Alan Furst is wonderful at atmosphere but slim on plot development lately - this book is a return to his best, like The Polish Officer and Night Soldiers, which is still his best book in my opinion. Foreign Correspondent has strong characters, a likable hero and an interesting story line. Well worth the time.

    Dexter is experiencing some major life changes - don't we all? And they're mostly wrapped up in the eight-pound curiosity that is his newborn daughter. Family bliss is cut short, however, when Dexter is summoned to investigate the disappearance of a 17-year-old girl who has been running with a bizarre group of goths who fancy themselves to be vampires. As Dexter gets closer to the truth of what happened to the missing girl, he realizes they are not really vampires so much as cannibals.

    Amazon Customer says: "Odd even for Dexter, but enjoyable!"
    "One of the best Dexters since the first book"
    Overall

    As much as I love the Dexter series, the last two books were just okay. This is one is back to the basics, with Dexter facing fatherhood, his brother and mayham with his signature style.

    Adam Lang has been Britain’s longest serving—and most controversial—prime minister of the last half century. As pressure mounts for Lang to complete this memoirs, he hires a professional ghostwriter to finish the book. As he sets to work, the ghostwriter discovers many more secrets than Lang intends to reveal, secrets with the power to alter world politics - secrets with the power to kill.

    Jim says: "What a HUGE Surprise!"
    "Classic Harris"
    Overall

    Another great book by Robert Harris. He doesn't disappoint with The Ghost Writer, even at moments when you think the book has lost momentum, it turns out he is just getting started. I have loved Harris' work since Fatherland and he appears to just keep getting better.

    The Mongol army led by Genghis Khan subjugated more lands and people in 25 years than the Romans did in 400. In nearly every country the Mongols conquered, they brought an unprecedented rise in cultural communication, expanded trade, and a blossoming of civilization.

    Peter says: "Brilliant, insightful, intriguing."
    "Fascinating history but too biased"
    Overall

    I really, really wanted to like this book. I tried to listen to it several times and finally, after making it through the first half, simply gave up. The author obviously has a lot of respect for what Genghis Khan achieved but that -- at least in the first half -- spills over into unchecked admiration. Perhaps that is necessary to balance the accounts after centuries of bad mouthing the Mongols' conquests and campaign, but I think it goes overboard.
