    Returning from a covert mission, Mitch Rapp was publicly hailed by the president for his role in the fight against terrorism. After years of working in the shadows, Rapp was caught in the media spotlight - and marked for death by virtually every terrorist in the world. Now a CIA advisor, Rapp is ready to battle terror far from the front lines. But when a Navy SEAL team in the Philippines is ambushed, all evidence points to a leak within the U.S. State Department. And a greater threat lurks....

    Overall

    Great stories (more than one here), good character development, unexpected twists, and I - a Navy veteran - was reading this during the time Ben Laden was found. A description in the book must have been right on for how the Navy Seal team exited the helicopters during the raid on Bin Laden's compound. Will I read more of this author? Yep, and did I say the reader could read the newspaper backwards and would be worth listening to?

    Home from Iraq, a lieutenant kills his commanding officer—was it self-defense or premeditated murder? An enthralling novel of suspense about the high cost of war and secrets.

    Overall

    Perhaps one needs to be a Patterson fan, but I fell for the ads for this book and wish I hadn't. Almost 2 hours into it, I find it slow and not very interesting, though there is an occasional well written passage. Otherwise, some of the long passages when someone explains something the reader needs to know sounds like quoted research by the author. Good description of expectations for career Army wives is good (ask me how I know), but also too long, again, sounds like quoted research. Decided to quit it, but understand it may be for Patterson fans.

  • That Old Ace in the Hole

    Strikingly original and intimate, That Old Ace in the Hole tracks the vast waves of change that have shaped the American landscape and character in the past century. In Bob Dollar, Proulx (The Shipping News) has created one of the most irresistible characters in contemporary fiction. "It's like seeing a painting up close and magnified," says Publishers Weekly, "with each tiny brush stroke lovingly emphasized."

    Mark says: "Wonderful characters and a Message, too"
    "little errors too much"
    Overall

    I'm a fan of the author, but I believe one cannot write as easily about Texas as one can other places. A small error here and there is not so bad, but when coupled with the occasional pronunciation error of the narrator when trying to sound Texan...I quit the book with a sigh after a little over an hour. This Texan will read the book instead, and forgive the outsider errors because the author is so good.
