    Elvis Cole is a detective who can't say no, especially when it comes to a girl in a terrible fix. But when Jennifer Sheridan asks him for help, Elvis takes on rather more than he bargained for. Jennifer's fiance, Mark Thurman, is a decorated LA cop with an elite plain-clothes unit, but Jennifer's sure he's in trouble. The kind of serious trouble that Cole is only too familiar with.

    If you could sum up Free Fall in three words, what would they be?

    Not too bad


    Has Free Fall turned you off from other books in this genre?

    I care about the characters in this series that's what compels me


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

    No as far as I'm concerned he's Elvis Cole

    I don't like books with torture in them in any form, but I had to see what happened to the gray man so I skipped the bits I didn't like and was glad I did, another great story that had me on the edge of my seat and I didn't see the end coming,

    Court Gentry is known as The Gray Man - a legend in the covert realm, moving silently from job to job, accomplishing the impossible, and then fading away. And he always hits his target. But there are forces more lethal than Gentry in the world. And in their eyes, Gentry has just outlived his usefulness. Now, he is going to prove that for him, there's no gray area between killing for a living-and killing to stay alive.

    This was a promo and it was great! Courtland Gentry is in a dangerous business and he handles the business with class. Loved this book, bought the rest of the series and can't wait for December.

  • How to Learn and Memorize Italian Vocabulary...: Using a Memory Palace Specifically Designed for the Italian Language (Magnetic Memory Series)

    If you'd like to double, triple or even quadruple your ability to learn Italian vocabulary by using simple memory techniques that you can learn in 30 minutes or less, then this may be the most important audiobook that you will ever listen to. Believe it or not, it really doesn't matter if you think you have a good memory or not. Frankly, if you can memorize a short email address or the name of a movie, then you can use this system to memorize a language as rich and diverse as Italian.

    It got carried away with how clever it was, obscure became confusing and although I think the premise is good the execution rambled on and became convoluted eventually it lost me.

    Our favorite white trash zombie, Angel Crawford, has enough problems of her own, what with dealing with her alcoholic, deadbeat dad, issues with her not-quite boyfriend, the zombie mafia, industrial espionage, and evil corporations. Oh, and it’s raining, and won’t let up. But things get even crazier when a zombie movie starts filming in town, and Angel begins to suspect that it’s not just the plot of the movie that's rotten. Soon she's fighting her way through mud, blood, bullets, and intrigue, even as zombies, both real and fake, prowl the streets.

    This series is good I will buy the next one if there is one. Angel isn't what I expected, some of this genre make a lot of the gore and I thought I'd have issues with the gore ...you know Zombies...but I get more caught up in what's happening to the characters because it's a compelling story for the most part.

Bond and Tatiana become pawns in a game of cross and double cross that reaches its deadly finale on the Orient Express. Includes an exclusive bonus interview with Toby Stephens.

She survived, forsaking her youth and innocence, and five years later she continues to exist--albeit lonely--in the fortified town of Eastpointe. Nightmares and the unwelcome advances of Leon Wolfe are the worst things she's dealing with now in her otherwise mundane life.
