    I gave this book a highest rating strictly for its narration. What else can one do with a reading by Frank Muller. The story was made entertaining by Muller ... he definitely carried the day for me on this one. Sorry we had to lose him so early.

    This was the longest 7hrs and 22 minutes I've ever had to spend listening to a book. I mean Mark Hammer was totally in the moment for 7 hours. The drawl was unending. There was not one character that spoke at a quick pace. It was sleep inducing. .....

    But I have to say it's a good story ...

    Echoes of My Soul relates the inside story of how Mel Glass, an assistant district attorney under the legendary DA Frank Hogan, took it upon himself to investigate the Career Girls Murders in Manhattan and another murder in Brooklyn, believing that the accused man, with an IQ of about 70, had been coerced into confessing murders he did not commit. It meant, of course, embarrassing the DA’s office and the police if they withdraw the charges of a confessed killer but Mel was convinced of the wrong being done and DA Hogan told him, "Find the truth, Mel."

    Story

    This book answers so many questions about Tanenbaum's own experiences that are brought to bear in his Butch and Marlene stories.

    This book, however, stands on its own as a cornerstone to the real life heroes of The Office of The District Attorney of New York County with due homage to "Mr. District Attorney", Frank Hogan.

    Personally I don't think there will ever be another like him. This book is a keeper!!

    Anti-Terrorist Task Force agent John Corey and his wife, FBI agent Kate Mayfield, have been posted overseas to Sana'a, Yemen - one of the most dangerous places in the Middle East. While there, they will be working with a small team to track down one of the masterminds behind the USS Cole bombing: a high-ranking Al Qaeda operative known as The Panther. Ruthless and elusive, he's wanted for multiple terrorist acts and murders - and the U.S. government is determined to bring him down, no matter the cost.

    Well, if you haven't already gotten your fill of John Corey, you might as well jump in for this one. Especially if you like the idea of being dragged across the god-forsaken Yemeni countryside. It was a hard trek for me, John and Kate, and his nemesis the CIA ... Yes they're all in his mind and then ... oh well, sit back and enjoy great gobs of Yemeni history as the team pursues "The Panther."

    Jerry Broadfield thinks he's a good cop. But now he's been charged with extortion - and his former buddies in the NYPD would like to see him laid out on a morgue slab for squealing to a committee on police corruption. Suddenly, he's got a lot of enemies, and when a dead call girl turns up in his apartment, his troubles get even bigger. Broadfield screams "setup," but nobody believes him - except ex-policeman, now unlicensed PI Matthew Scudder. Because Broadfield turned traitor no cop is going to give Scudder any help with this investigation, so Scudder's on his own.

    Indeed a masterpiece of storytelling. No motion picture could tell all the details of this book. But then movies serve a different purpose and manner of storytelling. This is a long book worth every penny ...John Lee is a great narrator, holding steadfast throughout, to deliver every nuance of this classic story. Ours to enjoy forever.

    On November 22, 1963, three shots rang out in Dallas, President Kennedy died, and the world changed. What if you could change it back? In this brilliantly conceived tour de force, Stephen King - who has absorbed the social, political, and popular culture of his generation more imaginatively and thoroughly than any other writer - takes listeners on an incredible journey into the past and the possibility of altering it.

    Story

    Stephen King has given us a masterpiece of suspension-of-disbelief. Impeccable research, and a clever go-back technique (different from Finney and Matheson), have resulted in a compelling thriller and romantic drama.
    .
    However, as we continue along the journey the inevitable questions arise : "Am I doing the right thing??" "Do I really know the consequences of my actions ??" "What about all those butterflies ... there must be zillions of them." Yes, there are. More than a zillion.
    .
    No matter. It's a thrill ride enjoy it.

    Simon Prebble's narration is superior by far over previous version, revealing new facets of understanding, making this worthy of a re-listening and fuller understanding of the story.
