    The scion of an old-money San Francisco family, Daniel Brasher left his well-paying, respectable money-manager position to marry his community organizer wife and work at a job he loves, leading group counseling sessions with recently paroled violent offenders. One night he finds an envelope - one intended for someone else that was placed in his office mailbox by accident. Inside is an unsigned piece of paper, a handwritten note that says, "Admit what you've done or you will bleed for it."

    Story

    His mother may have been nuts, but she did have a point. Why does he do everything the hard way? And at such length? I am at chapter 12 and can't stand it any more. Think I'll go listen to a nice children's book to cleanse my palate.

    When a sudden rainstorm disrupts an archeological dig at a remote Mayan site, site supervisor Deborah Miller makes an astonishing discovery: a collection of rubies so precious that generations of men have died - and killed - to possess them. Some believe the jewels harbor occult power; others believe they are the key to the arms race; still others see merely their potential for profit. But Deborah doesn’t want power or money - she only wants the truth.

    This was on sale, and looked like a good $3.95 fun time. I quit. I thought at least it would get me through the weekend chores, but it is just too dumb. I give it 2 stars for effort.

    Will Robie may have just made the first - and last - mistake of his career.... It begins with a hit gone wrong. Robie is dispatched to eliminate a target unusually close to home in Washington, D.C. But something about this mission doesn't seem right to Robie, and he does the unthinkable: He refuses to kill. Now, Robie becomes a target himself and must escape from his own people.

    Fleeing the scene, Robie crosses paths with a wayward teenage girl, a 14-year-old runaway from a foster home. But she isn't an ordinary runaway....

    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Ron McLarty is great as usual, 5 stars. Why clutter up a good thing with a not so great for the character female voice and cheesy sound effects?


    Any additional comments?

    I completely and thoroughly enjoyed this read, once I got over two voices and sound effects. Actually, I don't even remember hearing them by the end of the book, but they must have been there. And who cares if the hit man is lovable? Lovable is good! Makes for a much more sympathetic character. Relax and enjoy a great Baldacci ride.

    A storm. Rain-lashed city streets. A flash of lightning. A scruffy lad sees a girl leap desperately from a horse-drawn carriage in a vain attempt to escape her captors. Can the lad stand by and let her be caught again? Of course not, because he's...Dodger. Seventeen-year-old Dodger may be a street urchin, but he gleans a living from London's sewers, and he knows a jewel when he sees one. He's not about to let anything happen to the unknown girl - not even if her fate impacts the most powerful people in England.

    A joy to read/listen to. Good story, great wit and humor, fine narration. One of those I will read again some day just for the fun of it.

    What about George Guidall’s performance did you like?

    George Guidall is wonderful. I will read a book that he reads just because he's reading it.


    Any additional comments?

    A really fun and thought-provoking book. Enjoyed every minute of it. And as I look around the world I live in, I see these new gods everywhere!

  • The Boat of a Million Years

    Others have written science fiction on the theme of immortality, but in The Boat of a Million Years, Poul Anderson made it his own. Early in human history, certain individuals were born who live on—unaging, undying—through the centuries and millennia. This story follows them over two thousand years, up to our time and beyond—to the promise of utopia, and to the challenge of the stars.

    Was The Boat of a Million Years worth the listening time?

    I read this book when it first came out in the late 80's, and it has been in my thoughts ever since. So for maybe 25 years I have, with some regularity, thought back to it. Very few books affect me in this way.I was delighted when it came out in audio form, and spent a whole credit on it.

    I still have not finished it. The narration is the most uninspired and monotonous I have ever experienced in a audio fiction book. Akin to a bad lecturer in a subject I'm not really interested in.

    Don't waste your credits for this terrible rendition of a wonderful book.
