    The heir to Martina Cole’s crown with a story of murder, the underworld, violence and treachery. The Butlers are the kings of the East End. Vinny and Roy Butler are the apple of their mum’s eye. Queenie knows they can play dirty, but when it comes to family they look after business and make her proud. Nothing and no one can bring them down. Brotherly love. But Vinny seems to have crossed the wrong person and his cards are marked. And with the brothers joined at the hip, Roy may just be in the firing line too…

    Former military cop Jack Reacher makes it all the way from snowbound South Dakota to his destination in northeastern Virginia, near Washington, D.C.: the headquarters of his old unit, the 110th MP. The old stone building is the closest thing to a home he ever had. Reacher is there to meet - in person - the new commanding officer, Major Susan Turner, so far just a warm, intriguing voice on the phone. But it isn’t Turner behind the CO’s desk. And Reacher is hit with two pieces of shocking news, one with serious criminal consequences, and one too personal to even think about.

    Donna M Thomas, Author of From Pebbles to Pathways says: "My favorite Reacher story yet"
    "typical reacher story exciting,twisted & captivati"

    What did you love best about Never Go Back?

    like alfred hickock plots leaves you wondering at each turn


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    it would be if the author spent some time using some different phrasing of reacher said , she said or using that type of structuring every 5 seconds. gets on the nerves after a short time. plus the constant , unnessary reference, use of the of the main characters name 700 times


    Any additional comments?

    as with many good books the author works fast trying to get books in our hands. as a result the writing suffers some when read outloud . two people convesations constantly using the phase he said/she said when the reader uses voice changes to do the same thing. redundant and annoying

    In the heart of Italy, Harvard professor of symbology, Robert Langdon, is drawn into a harrowing world centered on one of history’s most enduring and mysterious literary masterpieces: Dante’s Inferno. Against this backdrop, Langdon battles a chilling adversary and grapples with an ingenious riddle that pulls him into a landscape of classic art, secret passageways, and futuristic science. Drawing from Dante’s dark epic poem, Langdon races to find answers and decide whom to trust...before the world is irrevocably altered.

    was very unpredictable


    Any additional comments?

    again the author uses he/she said way to much , really detracts from the story. in one instance the author writes she says after already telling u she said it. double whammy. drives me to stop listening for awhile!!!

    Virgil's always been known for having a somewhat active, er, social life, but he's probably not going to be getting too many opportunities for that during his new case. While competing in a fishing tournament in a remote area of northern Minnesota, he gets a call from Lucas Davenport to investigate a murder at a nearby resort.

    What did you like best about Rough Country? What did you like least?

    a very good story. the constant use of virgil said or one of the other charicters ssaid when only two people are in the conversation and you don't need that . most of the time its obvious


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Rough Country?

    the finding of the body in the lake


    How did the narrator detract from the book?

    already stated , but the use of the phrase , he said she said to much, i wanted to erase the book a couple times.

    good story, worth the listen,as with most of this authors work.

    murder , mystery & great chase
