    In Virtual Vice, listeners follow disillusioned entertainment attorney Ian McKenzie as his professional life takes a decided turn for the questionable when he is hired by the charismatic and dangerous Scott White to represent Scott’s interests in his cutting edge Internet startup, Metropoleis Multimedia.

    I really don't know if this turned out to be a good story or not because I stopped listening after the first part. The audio sounds like it was recorded in the guys kitchen and he is not a good reader as in, no character acting and even worse an inability to stay focused on what he is reading. Pauses and improper emphasis kept me guessing what he was talking about. This type of reading kept me distracted from the story line. Too bad, it may have been a good story but it needs a professional audio production with a better reader.

    It's a gorgeous autumn day in Georgetown. The Democratic candidates for president and vice-president of the United States are dutifully glad-handing voters and the media outside a grand estate where a national-security conference has just been held, bringing together the world's greatest minds to discuss the issues that are threatening the country. It's American politicking at its best. That's when all hell breaks loose.

    This is the first audio book that I actually spent time in my driveway after I got home and listened to. It was fast paced and gripping, Vince Flynn keeps your attention non-stop throughout. The narrator also brought great acting skills to the read, he completed the thrill ride. I wish the older books were unabridged as I now want to go back and catch up on this great series. Hope the publishers are listening.

    In the Nevada desert, an experiment has gone horribly wrong. A cloud of nanoparticles (micro-robots) has escaped from the laboratory. This cloud is self-sustaining and self-reproducing. It is intelligent and learns from experience. For all practical purposes, it is alive.

    I have to agree with many who have indicated the main character's believability is in question. I expected better from this author. I was most amazed at the third person reactions our hero had to his wife's bizzare behavior. It just seemed to me that a smart software engineer would be more on the ball when faced with a wife who didn't go to the emergency room when their child was extremely ill. This and other examples kept the characters short of plausable and I don't think this represents the authors best work. The books concept was very interesting, too bad it wasn't exploited better.
