    The author takes us inside George Webb's -a divorced ex-policeman turned private investigator- mind. For one day, we see what Webb sees and know only what his thoughts reveals. We learn about his childhood and the secret it forced him to carry; the last moments with his ex-wife; his fall as a cop; the ease with which he has turned his police skills to the demands of his new profession. And we learn how those demands have put him in a league with a client, a woman he has come to love.

    Excellent book, a breath of fresh air in the musty chamber of the nearly good best sellers. Get it and prepare for a wonderful listen that will have you thinking of parallels and insights long before you know it :-)

    World-renowned Harvard symbologist Robert Langdon is summoned to a Swiss research facility to analyze a cryptic symbol seared into the chest of a murdered physicist. What he discovers is unimaginable: a deadly vendetta against the Catholic Church by a centuries - old underground organization - the Illuminati.

    Enjoyed "Da Vinci"...so thought I might like this. But as mentioned already...juvenile - I do have a hard time beleiving the same author wrote both.

    Michelle Maxwell has just blown her future with the Secret Service. Against her instincts, she let a presidential candidate out of her sight to comfort a grieving widow. Then, behind closed doors, the politician whose safety was her responsibility vanished into thin air.

    Overall

    While I did not turn this one off and move on to another...a vague disappointment was present throughout.... definately not the caliber of Last Man Standing which was very good. The guy was just a little too handsome and wealthy -- the girl just a little too perfect -- and the story line just unplausible......and it was just too predictable. Having said that it was well read - great tone - maybe a good one for the summer hammock and a lazy day.
