    Lincoln Rhyme is back, on the trail of a killer whose weapon of choice cripples New York City with fear. The weapon is invisible and omnipresent. Without it, modern society grinds to a halt. It is electricity. The killer harnesses and steers huge arc flashes with voltage so high and heat so searing that steel melts and his victims are set afire.

    Joanne says: "I love Lincoln Rhyme but..."
    "pior to finishing/ review"
    Overall

    nomally would have finished book in 2 days but now on 5th day and half done.I got lost at missing tooth on hacksaw! give me a break! also as with other authors the new style seems to be for the hero to be as nasty with those around him as possible. I don't think anyone would put up with Linc's attitude. Also dont care for reader's style. Maybe another review when I finish the book.

    While centurions Macro and Cato are returning to Rome from a harrowing campaign against the Parthians, their transport ship is almost capsized by a tidal wave. They barely make it to the port of Matala in Crete where they are stunned to find a devastated town. An earthquake has struck the island, destroying its cities and killing thousands. In the chaotic aftermath, large bands of the island's slaves begin to revolt and local bandits, taking advantage of the slave rebellion, urge the Cretans to overthrow the Roman administration.

    The world is on the brink of disaster. Iran has just conducted its first atomic weapons test. Millions of Muslims around the world are convinced their messiah — known as the Twelfth Imam — has arrived on earth. Israeli leaders fear Tehran, under the Twelfth Imam’s spell, will soon launch a nuclear attack that could bring about a second Holocaust and the annihilation of Israel.

    Would you try another book from Joel C. Rosenberg and/or Christopher Lane?

    no


    Has The Tehran Initiative turned you off from other books in this genre?

    no


    What does Christopher Lane bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    would have closed the book and never finished it.

    no


    Any additional comments?

    bought this book as a spy and terroist novel. but the story is just backround! This is a religous tome and nothing else. I believe in God but don't like driving down the road being lectured about GOD!

    Dubbed the American Tolkien by Time magazine, George R. R. Martin has earned international acclaim for his monumental cycle of epic fantasy. Now the number-one New York Times best-selling author delivers the fifth book in his spellbinding landmark series - as both familiar faces and surprising new forces vie for a foothold in a fragmented empire.

    Ryan says: "Enjoyable, but a lot of setup"

    Is there anything you would change about this book?

    to many unresolved story lines


    Would you ever listen to anything by George R. R. Martin again?

    hope to live long enough to hear book 6


    Would you be willing to try another one of Roy Dotrice’s performances?

    agree with others as to Dany and Cerci's voices also another character sounds like Grayjoy before he lost his teeth


    Do you think A Dance with Dragons needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    DUH! 10 or 12 unfinished story lines


    Any additional comments?

    enjoyed reading and listening books 1 to 4 was disapointed in this one!
