    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    If you could sum up The Last Man in three words, what would they be?

    It is a great read


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    I liked the character they brought back from the book Consent to Kill. Always wonder if he could leave the work and live a normal life.


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

    He brings the characters alive and the story.


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

    Yes but I have to sleep.


    Any additional comments?

    Would like to know how the assignment went that Director Kennedy was going to assign and if he gets back with his family.

    After a slow summer of chasing low-level skips for her cousin Vinnie's bail bonds agency, Stephanie Plum finally lands an assignment that could put her checkbook back in the black. Geoffrey Cubbin, facing trial for embezzling millions from Trenton's premier assisted-living facility, has mysteriously vanished from the hospital after an emergency appendectomy. Now it's on Stephanie to track down the con man. Unfortunately, Cubbin has disappeared without a trace, a witness, or his money-hungry wife. Rumors are stirring that he must have had help with the daring escape...or that maybe he never made it out of his room alive.

    In this first volume of his memoirs, then-newly-qualified vet James Herriot arrives in the small Yorkshire village of Darrowby, and he has no idea what to expect. How will he get on with his new boss? The local farmers? And what will the animals think? This program is filled with hilarious and touching tales of the unpredictable Siegfried Farnon, his charming student brother Tristan, and Herriot's first encounters with a beautiful girl named Helen.

    If you could sum up All Creatures Great and Small in three words, what would they be?

    Which character – as performed by Christopher Timothy – was your favorite?

    I like his character of James Herriot.


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

    If you want a laugh or cry see this film.

    Herriot continues the rich and rewarding day-to-day life of a small-town veterinarian, and we journey with him across the dales, meeting a whole new cast of unforgettable characters - humans, dogs, horses, lambs, parakeets - all of them drawn with the same infinite fascination, affection and insight that made James Herriot one of the most beloved authors of our time. And all the stories are warmly, evocatively told by the world-renowned "voice" of Dr. Herriot: Christopher Timothy.

    Would you consider the audio edition of All Things Bright and Beautiful to be better than the print version?

    I loved the TV show and the books. They are one of my most favourite series in TV and books.

    I love the audiobooks because it brings back memories of the era and the people. Christopher brings the characters back to life and all the images flood back.

    I have come to love audiobooks as much as I do books. It is to hard to choose for me. I love both.


    What other book might you compare All Things Bright and Beautiful to and why?

    Just the other books in the series compare to All Things Bright and Beautiful.


    Have you listened to any of Christopher Timothy’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No this is the first time for audiobooks.


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

    If you love animals and people you will enjoy this book. There is humour sorrow and history all rolled up in to one.


    Any additional comments?

    Jame Herriot is not only a great vet he is also a great writer who can make you laugh and cry.

    When literature student Anastasia Steele goes to interview young entrepreneur Christian Grey, she encounters a man who is beautiful, brilliant, and intimidating. The unworldly, innocent Ana is startled to realize she wants this man and, despite his enigmatic reserve, finds she is desperate to get close to him. Unable to resist Ana’s quiet beauty, wit, and independent spirit, Grey admits he wants her, too—but on his own terms.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes I would recommend this audiobook to a friend. I have heard about sub and doms before but did not really know much about the subject. The audiobook is educational and the love story is very compelling.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I liked the love story and the relationships the 2 main characters had with friends and family.


    Have you listened to any of Becca Battoe’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No I have not listened to any of Becca Battoe's other performances. But she made the story very believable and the characters in the book come alive.


    Any additional comments?

    I liked the 1st audiobook so much I had to get the remaining 2 audiobooks and enjoyed these 2 just as much as the 1st.
