    Army Special Agent John Puller is the best there is. A combat veteran, Puller is the man the U.S. Army relies on to investigate the toughest crimes facing the nation. Now he has a new case - but this time, the crime is personal: His aunt has been found dead in Paradise, Florida.

    Story

    I have bought every Baldacci book just based on his name and I usually enjoy his books, but this one, ugh. It is actually hard to get through. The dialog is awful and the plot weak. I do like when there are two readers, but they added "sound effects" that are just distracting. I have gotten to the big fight scene and still may not choose to finish it. I'm tempted to return it, but .....

    Just bad, and disappointed in Baldacci.

    Pak Jun Do is the haunted son of a lost mother - a singer “stolen” to Pyongyang - and an influential father who runs Long Tomorrows, a work camp for orphans. There the boy is given his first taste of power, picking which orphans eat first and which will be lent out for manual labor. Recognized for his loyalty and keen instincts, Jun Do comes to the attention of superiors in the state, rises in the ranks, and starts on a road from which there will be no return.

    Story

    This book is impossible to describe well. Parts are very dark, but the story is compelling. The multiple readers are excellent. While I didn't always like the story line, I found I could not stop listening! Well derserving of the Pulitzer!

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Story

    Nelson DeMille has finally teamed up his serial characteris of John Corey, Kate Mayfield and Paul Brenner (Up Country and The General's Daugher), to chase the next nasty terroist.

    You can immediately imagine that something like this happens in the Middle East on a regular basis.

    Scott Brick does his usual wonderful job reading.

    Well worth the credit and the time spent listening!

    In a case that spans 20 years, Harry Bosch links the bullet from a recent crime to a file from 1992, the killing of a young female photographer during the L.A. riots. Harry originally investigated the murder, but it was then handed off to the Riot Crimes Task Force and never solved. Now Bosch's ballistics match indicates that her death was not random violence, but something more personal, and connected to a deeper intrigue. Like an investigator combing through the wreckage after a plane crash, Bosch searches for the "black box", the one piece of evidence that will pull the case together.

    Amazon Customer says: "Disappointing"
    "One of the Best of the Harry Bosch series"

    Story

    Excellent story, excellent reader. Harry solves a 20 year old murder in his typical build the momentum off a small lead style. What is really nice is human side you see in him in his interactions with his daughter. Great mystery,

    Nararator does a wonderful job. Overall I think the best combination of story and reader in the series.

    Story

    The story itself was okay, especially when remembering that the what happened was factualy, Roddy Mcdowell as the reader was alright, but this not a Ken Follet written account like On Wings of Eagles. Ken Follet was the translator for the acutal French authors. Shame on any publisher and Audible for not making this abundantly clear! I'll buy and read anything Ken Follet writes, and I think I can recognize his wonderful style pretty easily, this was not Ken Follet. Even though I have listened and reviewed, I think I may for the first time try to return a story! While Audible and the publisher have probably done everything legally required, you would have to dig for any refrence to him as just a translator. To me this is all but false advertising! Shame on both!

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    My nephew had to read this over the summer heading into his freshman year in HS, I expected a book very suited to teenagers. I found a book, well suited to kids in HS, but that contained a wonderful thought provoking story, stocked with very believable characters put into a difficult situation by their government.

    While this is a "kids" book, I think most adults would really enjoy it. Good story, well read!
