    A car accident in upstate New York strands Nero Wolfe, America's largest detective, and Archie Goodwin, his confidential assistant, in the midst of a family feud. The feud, over $45,000 worth of prize bull, turns ugly when the beef in question is found pawing the mangled body of a family scion. Solving the mystery is no problem - but, alas, the evidence keeps disappearing.

    Reader from the heartland says: "Great story, poor audio"
    "A unique Wolfe tale!"
    Overall

    Nero Wolfe on a ranch in upstate new york? Great!

    It was a broadcaster's worst nightmare: dead air, in the true sense. A radio host's on-air guest is anything but live, dropping dead after chugging a sponsor's beverage.

    Michael says: "Not one of my favorites"
    "The best!"
    Overall

    It doesn't get any better than "And be a Villain." A great story and Michael Pritchard is a great reader for these stores. This story has a highlight of Wolfe confronting his great nemesis Arnold Zeck!

    Story

    In a remote war at Europe's center, somebody has committed a cold-blooded massacre - 35 victims shot in the head at close range. Sean Drummond, one of the Army's most brilliant lawyers, is heading the investigation. The deeper he probes, the more he discovers how duty, honor, and country can clash.

    George says: "A FUN ENJOYABLE BOOK"
    "A great story told very well"
    Overall

    There is no better combination of Brian Haig as author and John Rubinstein as reader. The story flies!

    This is a story of corrupt liaisons between criminal elements in the new Russian states and the world of legitimate finance in the West. It is also an intimate portrait of two families. Masterful and prescient, le Carré is writing at the top of his creative powers, and the central protagonist, Oliver Single, is one of his most fascinating characters.

    Chris says: "True performance art..."
    "More Father & Son Tension"
    Overall

    If you liked A Perfect Spy, this is a great followup. A great listen.

    The title says enough.

    Airframe is nonstop Crichton: the extraordinary mixture of super suspense and authentic information on a subject of compelling interest that has been a Crichton hallmark since The Andromeda Strain.

    I love it when a novel teaches me something about the real world. Airframe is certainly in that category. The narrator is also very good.
