    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    Where does The Nano Flower rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    This among the top 15% of the 100s of books I have listened to so far. It offers all that I want and expect from current science fiction.


    What did you like best about this story?

    I started this series on this book. But it can stand alone. This author creates a future that seems very possible. The action is fun and exciting too. I am going to try to the prequels too. The technology and the terminology of the possible future.


    What about Toby Longworth’s performance did you like?

    The performance is excellent. Toby brings it to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    See what's a tech merch and a hard liner.

  • The Kings of Cool: A Prequel to 'Savages'

    In Savages, Don Winslow introduced Ben and Chon, twentysomething best friends who risk everything to save the girl they both love, O. Now, in his high-octane prequel, Winslow reaches back in time to tell the story of how Ben, Chon, and O became the people they are. Spanning from 1960s Southern California to the recent past, it is a tale of family in all its forms. As the younger generation does battle with drug dealers and crooked cops, they learn that their future is inextricably linked with their parents' history.

    Story
    If you could sum up The Kings of Cool in three words, what would they be?

    It was semi predictable but the dialogue was good.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    It was fun throughout.


    What does Holter Graham bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    He definitely brought the book to life.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Not really.

    What do you buy and sell when the global markets reach saturation point? The markets themselves. Thirty years from now the big players in global capitalism have moved on from commodities. The big money is in conflict investment. The corporations keep a careful watch on the wars of liberation and revolution that burn constantly around the world. They guage who the winners will be and sell them arms, intelligence, and power. In return for a slice of the action when the war is won.

    Gary Godman says: "Good easy listen"

    Would you try another book from Richard K. Morgan and/or Simon Vance?

    I have enjoyed other books by Richard Morgan and Simon Vance.


    Would you ever listen to anything by Richard K. Morgan again?

    Of course, he has great skills and imagination for science fiction and fantasy. I bet they make a movie out of his sci fi.


    Would you listen to another book narrated by Simon Vance?

    Definitely.


    Was Market Forces worth the listening time?

    Not really. I used the 2xs speed to get through and I almost skipped the end.

  • American Sniper: The Autobiography of the Most Lethal Sniper in U.S. Military History

    From 1999 to 2009, U.S. Navy SEAL Chris Kyle recorded the most career sniper kills in United States military history. The Pentagon has officially confirmed more than 150 of Kyles kills (the previous American record was 109), but it has declined to verify the astonishing total number for this book. Iraqi insurgents feared Kyle so much they named him al-Shaitan (“the devil”) and placed a bounty on his head. Kyle earned legendary status among his fellow SEALs, Marines, and U.S. Army soldiers, whom he protected with deadly accuracy from rooftops and stealth positions.
