    A careful, methodical young data analyst for a California insurance company, John Walker knows when people will marry, at what age they will most likely have children, and when they will die. All signs point to a long successful career---until Max Stillman, a gruff security consultant, appears without warning at the office. It seems a colleague with whom Walker once had an affair has disappeared after paying a very large death benefit to an impostor.

    If you could sum up Death Benefits in three words, what would they be?

    I've enjoyed listening to books by Thomas Perry. I listened to the Butcher Boy #1 and 2, then I thought I'd try Death Benefits. It's different than the first books I listened to, but I definitely would recommend it for a great listen. I've become a fan of Thomas Perry!

    Only days before Britain declares war on Germany, Harry Clifton, hoping to escape the consequences of long-buried family secrets, and forced to accept that his desire to marry Emma Barrington will never be fulfilled, has joined the Merchant Navy. But his ship is sunk in the Atlantic by a German Uboat, drowning almost the entire crew. An American cruise liner, the SS Kansas Star, rescues a handful of sailors, among them Harry and the third officer, an American named Tom Bradshaw.

    Any additional comments?

    I can't understand the negative comments about this series. It is a great listen. It's in a series, so naturally, one is left wondering what is coming next. The writer is great at building and keeping the suspense going!

    Where does The Butcher's Boy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It has to rate at the top of the many books I've listened to so far. I wasn't familiar with Thomas Perry before, but he's a very engaging writer, keeps the story moving so you wonder how The Butcher's Boy can possibly get out of this situation. I highly recommend it.

  • The Glass Rainbow: A Dave Robicheaux Novel

    Why we think it’s a great listen: When it comes to author/narrator pairings, nobody tops James Lee Burke and Will Patton in the Robicheaux thrillers. Beloved Burke hero Detective Dave Robicheaux here returns to New Iberia to solve a series of grisly murders. Seven young women in neighboring Jefferson Davis Parish have been brutally murdered. While the crimes have all the telltale signs of a serial killer, the death of Bernadette Latiolais, a high-school honor student, doesn’t fit.

    Gardner says: "Best Yet... Almost"
    "Captivating listen"
    Overall

    Rich character development, bringing out deep flaws as well as tremendous strength combined with building tension make this a captivating listen. It brings out the strengths as well as the tests of friendships. I highly recommend this book.

    No one knows the dark side of "The Street" better than master storyteller Stephen Frey, author of such riveting novels as Shadow Account and The Day Trader. Now, in his most ambitious work to date, Frey proves that no writer can put a high-powered hero at greater risk, nor offer readers more thrilling rewards.

    J. Anderson says: "Excellent!"
    "A great listen"
    Overall

    This was one of the best books I've listened to - great character development and action. In the beginning I didn't know who to root for as every character seemed to have serious flaws. But one of the characters begins to evolve into a more positive person. There are many twists and turns in the plot that kept me guessing.

  • Sharpe's Havoc: Book VII of the Sharpe Series

    It is the spring of 1809 and a small British army is stationed in Lisbon when Marshal Soult begins the French invasion of northern Portugal. No one knows whether the British will fight or leave, but there is little choice for Lieutenant Richard Sharpe and his squad of riflemen, who are sent into the beleaguered city of Oporto to rescue a British mother and daughter who have chosen to stay rather than flee southwards.

    Brent says: "Disagree with above review."
    "Another great book from Cornwell"
    Overall

    I have become a fan of Bernard Cornwell. I haven't always been greatly interested in history. Many of the classes on history I took were dry and boring. This certainly is not the case with Cornwell, and his series featuring Sharpe have been captivating. This one was a wonderful listen. I wanted to draw the listening time out, but I found that I couldn't stop listening to it.

    Overall

    A great listen! I've become a great fan of Bernard Cornwell. He has a wonderful ability to create believable characters and weave them into a fascinating story, while making the history of the event come alive. His battlefield descriptions are brutally real. He vividly shows what war does to those involved - the raw fear, the incredible bravery and the trembling cowardice. I will listen to all of his books, and hope he keeps on writing for a long time.
