    For years, ex–Navy SEAL Maxwell Moore has worked across the Middle East and behind the scenes for the Special Activities Division of the CIA, making connections, extracting valuable intelligence, and facing off against America’s enemies at every turn. And then...news of a potentially devastating coalition: What if two of the greatest threats to the security of the United States were to form an unholy alliance?

    Having read or listen to all of Clancys' works I was shocked at the poor quality of this book. World class explorers going in to Napal right next to China without a GPS, radio or emergency locator beacon - give me a break. More like fantacy land! I was hard pressed to finsh the CD.

    With average grades, less than stellar play in baseball, and a single mother struggling to make ends meet, it looks as if Austin's only way to continue his education would be through some kind of miracle.

    What made the experience of listening to Star Runners the most enjoyable?

    Good storyline that keeps you interested.


    What did you like best about this story?

    This story continues to build with the hero gaining with each new experience.


    What does Donald R Emero bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I prefer a good performance like this to bring out the depth of the characters involved. Emero does just that.


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

    I would have loved to but at 10 hours plus I just couldn't do it. Took me two settings.


    Any additional comments?

    L. E. Thomas is an excellent author and I hope to see more stories in the future.

    Imagine a ship the size of a planet. It has an atmosphere of methane, but there is no water. Mysterious and dark, it sails through a gateway, leaving a path open to the most implacable enemies that mankind and the aliens of the Milky Way Galaxy have ever face. Genetically tailored, symbiotic body armor protects the human commandos that are to be dropped on the metallic surface. A trooper in his armor, with surgically enhanced, neuro-fiber speed, is the deadliest grunt in the universe.

    Nora Kelly, a young archaeologist in Santa Fe, receives a letter written 16 years ago, yet mysteriously mailed only recently. In it her father, long believed dead, hints at a fantastic discovery that will make him famous and rich - the lost city of an ancient civilization that suddenly vanished a thousand years ago. Now Nora is leading an expedition into a harsh, remote corner of Utah's canyon country, but what she unearths will be the newest of horrors.

    It was just a godforsaken mountainside, but no place on earth was richer in silver. For a bustling, enterprising America, this was the great bonanza. The dreamers, the restless, the builders, the vultures - they were lured by the glittering promise of instant riches and survived the brutal hardships of a mining camp to raise a legendary boom town. But some sought more than wealth. There was Val Trevallion, a loner haunted by a violent past, and Grita Redaway, a radiantly beautiful actress driven by an unfulfilled need.

    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.

    Story

    This book should be mandatory reading for anyone who calls themselves a patriot. It is truly written through the eyes of a warrior. The type of man/woman who you hope will rises to the occasion when their country calls. Students of history will also see what happens when politicians fight a war. The same mistakes that cost us Viet Nam are now being made again in Iraq and Afghanistan. It proves once again that some people will never learn.

    Retired Marine Master Sergeant Marcus Johnson returned to his family homestead in rural Alaska after 20 years chasing bad men. Now he wants nothing but to hunt and fish and run his trapline in peace and quiet, and no more war. Meanwhile, lurking deep in a long forgotten bunker in the remote arctic hills is a decades-old secret that could not be destroyed, and was never meant to be rediscovered.

    Story

    Having lived in Alaska for 25 years I found this book to be using for the most part realistic facts about Alaska. The story line is interesting and keeps youi coming back for more. The author does an excellent job of inter weaving the military with the State police. Well worth the listen.

    The characters introduced in the best-selling Honor Bound - Marine aviator Cletus Frade, Army demolitions expert Anthony Pelosi, and communications genius David Ettinger - encounter intrigue in Buenos Aires in April 1943.

    Kindle Customer says: "Absolutely awful"
    "Great book, terrible reading!"
    Overall

    I have almost 200 audio books in my personal library. While WEB Griffin is a master at writing, Michael Russotto is the worst narrator I have ever come across. Many of the characters come across more female than male. In my opinion this is an exceptionally bad reading and materially detracts from an otherwise great book. So poor is the reading that I cannot recommend this as an audio book.
