    Led by Admiral Naismith (a.k.a. Lord Miles Vorkosigan), the Dendarii Mercenaries have pulled off the daring interspace rescue of an entire Cetagandan POW camp. But they have made some deadly enemies, and Miles realizes he's in trouble again. First the Mercenaries' payroll doesn't arrive on time; then someone tries to murder him. Now Miles must juggle both his identities to unravel a plot against him, and to reveal an unexpected ally. Just who is trying to assassinate which of his personas, and why?

    "Great Audio Book"
    Overall

    Fascinating story line, perfect narration, overall a great audio book. If you are new to this series start with "The Warrior's Apprentice" and go from there. This is one of the best science fiction series available.

    Legendary beer expert Charlie Bamforth presents the most compelling social history of beer ever written: where it's come from, and where its headed. From centuries-old cultural values to radical new approaches, craft brewing to globalization, it's an amazing story. Bamforth tells it all with humor, behind-the-scenes insight, and sheer joy!

    Story

    As an avid homebrewer and lover of almost all beers, I was excited to listen to this book. Unfortunately, it was a real disappointment and one of the very few audiobooks I quit listening too, even after making it more than half-way through. The book is ver disjointed with no central thesis or point other than "beer". The first several chapters focus on the consolidation of the global beer market, and the political aspects of the downfall of the traditional British brewer-owned pub, as told from a corporate insider's perspective- not terribly interesting. Throughout the book much attention is paid defending the big industrial brewers and their amazingly consistent products. The chapter on the American craft beer movement was very interesting. Later the section on beer quality was amazingly devoid of anything of interes. Ferrone's narration was excellent- one of the better narrators I've listened to.

    Marsalis is one of a new breed...literally. Genetically engineered by the U.S. government to embody the naked aggression and primal survival skills that centuries of civilization have erased from humankind, Thirteens were intended to be the ultimate military fighting force. The project was scuttled, however, when a fearful public branded the supersoldiers dangerous mutants, dooming the Thirteens to forced exile on Earth's distant, desolate Mars colony. But Marsalis found a way to slip back.

    This is the fourth RKM book I've listened to so far. I believe it's his best. The story line is fascinating and the narration is brilliant. Highly Recommended.
