    As a small boy, Louis witnesses an unspeakable crime that takes the life of a member of his small, southern community. He grows up, moves on, but is forever changed by the cruel and brutal nature of the act. It lights a fire deep within him that burns white and cold. Now, years later, the sins of his life are reaching into his present, bringing with them the buried secrets and half-forgotten acts of his past.

    Story

    I tried twice to listen to this and just couldn't do it. Boring narration, bad story- lots of short statements that make for a choppy distracting listen. I liked Mr. Guidall's narration a lot on the Walt Longmire books, but not this one. Very sorry I wasted money on this one.

  • The End of the Affair

    Graham Greene’s evocative analysis of the love of self, the love of another, and the love of God is an English classic that has been translated for the stage, the screen, and even the opera house. Academy Award-winning actor Colin Firth (The King’s Speech, A Single Man) turns in an authentic and stirring performance for this distinguished audio release.

    Maybe I don't like Graham Greene after all. Depressing.... couldn't finish it. Mr Firth did a good job narrating, but the book just keeps saying the same thing over and over in different ways. Too bad I really wanted to like this.

    Fresh from 10 years as a U.S. Army Ranger, Quinn Colson finds his hands full as the newly elected sheriff of Tibbehah County, Mississippi. An old buddy running a local gun shop may be in over his head when stolen army rifles start showing up in the hands of a Mexican drug gang. At the same time, an abused-child case leads Quinn and his deputy, Lillie Virgil, deep into the heart of a bootleg baby racket and a trail of darkness and death. When the cases collide, Quinn and his allies realize they are in the fight of their lives.

    I will be looking for the next installment in this series, this is a good one. This story was exciting and the characters are growing. The narrator did a great job on this book.

    Northeast Mississippi: hill country, rugged and notorious for outlaws since the Civil War, where killings are as commonplace as in the Old West. To Quinn Colson, it's home - but not the home he left when he went to Afghanistan. Now an Army Ranger, he returns to a place overrun by corruption, and finds his uncle, the county sheriff, dead - a suicide, he's told, but others whisper murder.

    Really like the characters in this series. I like the narrator better in this book than some of his others, he kind of reads a little slow sometimes.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Got 40 hours to kill? You’ll find the time when you start listening to Lee’s take on Follett’s epic – and widely celebrated – novel of 12th-century England. The Pillars of the Earth tells the story of Philip, prior of Kingsbridge, a devout and resourceful monk driven to build the greatest Gothic cathedral the world has known...of Tom, the mason who becomes his architect - a man divided in his soul...and of the beautiful, elusive Lady Aliena, haunted by a secret shame....

    Joseph says: "Good historical setting, but loose story."

    It is 1758, and the flames of the Seven Years' War are burning hotter than ever. The rigors and dangers of battle are actually a welcome respite for Lord John and his brother Hal, who feel the constant strain of their family's troubled history. Blending war, family secrets, and forbidden love, Gabaldon crafts a suspenseful novel that loyal fans and newcomers alike with find irresistible.

    What made the experience of listening to Lord John and the Brotherhood of the Blade the most enjoyable?

    I am a fan of the Outlander series and enjoy the Lord John spin off books.


    What about Jeff Woodman’s performance did you like?

    Mr. Woodman's voice is a great one for Lord John.
