    Tommy Carmellini is sent to post guard duty at a farmhouse in Virginia's remote Blue Ridge Mountains, where top government operatives are debriefing a star defector: the ultimate KGB insider, a man with records on every operation and every dirty trick the shadowy intelligence agency has ever run, from Lenin to Putin.

    I like the Tommy Carmelini character in these books. Some say that Jake Grafton should be front & center. Not ever having read one where Grafton was THE character, I really enjoyed this. I love Carmelini's sarcasm and sense of humor.

    Set in the intriguing Scotland of 200 years ago, the third installment in the romantic adventures of Jamie and Claire is as compelling as the first. Now that Claire knows Jamie survived the slaughter at Culloden, she is faced with the most difficult decision of her life. She aches to travel back through time again to find the love of her life, but, in order to do that, she must leave their daughter behind.

    What would have made Voyager better?

    Less gratuitous sex. An author less obsessed with nipples of both genders. Maybe not the same few story lines regurgitated with slight differences intended to fool only the dimmest of intellects.


    What didn’t you like about Davina Porter’s performance?

    Davina Porter's reading style and accent are pleasurable enough to veteran audiobook listeners. The substance of these books are enough; however, to make prolonged listening sound like nails on a chalkboard.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Voyager?

    I would have cut each and every reference to hard nipples which would have shaved off an hour or two. Although, some of the corny, sophomoric descriptions during the "intimate" scenes had me howling with laughter because they were so inane. It was like a cheap novel written by a half-witted nymphomaniac wannabe. I might also have suggested that the author vary a bit from the oft-repeated plot lines that became weary and predictable.


    Any additional comments?

    Don't bother unless you're a fan of uninteresting repetition and bodice-busting sophomoric prose in abundance.
