    The Cold War is over, and chaos is setting in. The new President of Russia is trying to create a new democratic regime. But there are strong elements within the country that are trying to stop him: the ruthless Russian Mafia, the right-wing nationalists, and even revanchist Czarists. Op-Center, the newly founded but highly successful crisis management team, begins a race against the clock and against the hardliners. Its members face an uphill battle. Their task is made more difficult by the discovery of a Russian counterpart to Op-Center....

    Pint-sized Bookworm says: "Russian Mafia, Days of the Czar. Op Center"
    "A very "Cold War" tale"

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    I would recommend Opt Center 2 - Mirror image to all hard core Tom Clancy fans and the ones that liked the first book inte the serie. It's a well written story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Mirror Image?

    The description of how to spy with the help of comics was interesting I was sorry when it turned for the worse


    What three words best describe Michael Kramer’s performance?

    You need to get used to his way of reading. Everybody won't like his voice.


    Any additional comments?

    The story feels a bit dated. I hasn't aged with grace. As I'm living in sweden and have been to St. Petersberg i found the descriptions of the places more interesting then the story. It is not as good as the first one in the serie.

    In these five tales, Sherlock Holmes is shown at the height of his powers: he co-operates with a young Winston Churchill in the famed Siege of Sydney Street, helps defeat a plan for a German invasion outlined in the Zimmerman Telegram, establishes a link between two missing lighthouse keepers and the royal treasures of King John, contends with a supernatural curse places upon an eccentric aristocrat, and discovers a lost epic of Lord Byron.

    Michael says: "Don't waste your money."
    "Good but not Doyle"

    Would you listen to Sherlock Holmes and the King's Evil: again? Why?

    Not as good as the original by A.C. Doyle, especially the last story, it didn't have the right tone and storyline.


    What did you like best about this story?

    Several of the stories were really close to Doyles style.


    Which character – as performed by John Telfer – was your favorite?

    The preformance was good, the right tone for Sherlock Holmes stories.


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

    As it's a collection of short stories, it's perfect for listning on the way to and fromwork


    Any additional comments?

    I havent listen to any of the authers other Sherlock holmes stories.
