    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

    Anastasia Burke says: "Hillenbrand could make even laundry fascinating!"
    "As intense as one could possibly imagine"

    FBI Special Agent Kate O’Hare is known for her fierce dedication and discipline on the job, chasing down the world’s most wanted criminals and putting them behind bars. Her boss thinks she is tenacious and ambitious; her friends think she is tough, stubborn, and maybe even a bit obsessed. And while Kate has made quite a name for herself for the past five years the only name she’s cared about is Nicolas Fox - an international crook she wants in more ways than one.

    Janels says: "Evanovich, no longer trite--entertaining romp"
    "Scott Brick's time has come"

    What disappointed you about The Heist?

    Consistently overly-dramatic...I used to be a fan...but now his style has worn thin. My history will show I've been a long-time , loyal fan of both Evanovich and Brick. The ship has sailed for me. His delivery is predictably over the top...I've truly grown tired of it..


    Would you ever listen to anything by Janet Evanovich and Lee Goldberg again?

    Evanovich? yes.


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    This series started well. Perhaps the novelty of the plot...it ultimately deteriorated into unnecessary complexity...with predictability, nonetheless. An overall disappointment. I was surprised to see it rated more popular/enjoyable than the Harry Potter Series. not even close! IMHO.


    What about Carolyn McCormick’s performance did you like?

    Just prejudiced (favorably) from her days at Law & Order


    What character would you cut from Mockingjay?

    The President.....Snow
