    A private detective working in Wilmington, North Carolina, is found dead in a gas-station restroom, apparently poisoned. But when her body sets off radiation alarms in the pathologist's office, suspicion falls on the nearby Helios nuclear power plant, a heavily guarded facility with supposedly fail-safe procedures.

    What made the experience of listening to The Moonpool the most enjoyable?

    PT Deuterman always weaves a fast paced story with subject matter that he has researched to make it believable. The nuclear industry material in this story had to be tempered, but the author made it into a great yarn, as he always does.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Yes, with many plot twists. Unlike some reviewers I liked the detail, and never felt that the story bogged down in any way.


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

    While not Dick Hill, I would put him in that calibre of narrator - very enjoyable! My big reason for listening to books is so that I can multitask - like driving, painting, etc. This does not work for everyone....


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    No extreme reaction - just fit in nicely with the rest of the series - and my wife and I have listened to all PTD's books!


    Any additional comments?

    A fun read (do I hear 'Hardy Boys" for adults?), and just what we like for escape reading - and we like PT's attitude about the decline of the USA. Hope that can be reversed....

    A man's duty...a woman's passion...The Edge of Honor cuts both ways. In this sweeping novel of the Vietnam War at sea and on the homefront, Lieutenant Brian Holcomb, smart, ambitious, honorable, and up for promotion, discovers that his ship - the USS John Bell Hood - hides a dangerous secret. What Brian does about it may end his career, or threaten the lives of hundreds.

    What did you love best about The Edge of Honor?

    My father was in the Navy during WW II and was the Supply Officer on a transport ship that was torpedoed, but not sunk. PT Deutermann is a for real Navy veteran writing about what he knows and it comes accross beautifully in his novels. My wife and I have listened to and enjoyed his novels as we drive on various road trips.

    Two years after the events of the Audiobook of the Year - The Chopin Manuscript - former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton and his Volunteers once again must crack a secretive conspiracy that not only threatens their lives, but the stability of the world. Their race against time will take them from London to the U.S. to Russia and beyond. And at the heart of it all is one question: What is the secret of the Copper Bracelet?

    Daniel says: "A Big Ugly MESS!"
    "A great sequel"
    Overall

    The Copper Bracelet, each chapter written by a different author, is a great sequel to "The Chopin Manuscript" and we look forward to more "serial thrillers". What a brilliant concept.

    15 thriller masters. 1 masterful thriller! Former war crimes investigator Harold Middleton possesses a previously unknown score by Frederic Chopin. But he is unaware that, within it's handwritten notes, lies a secret that now threatens the lives of thousands of Americans. As he races from Poland to the U.S. to uncover the mystery of the manuscript, Middleton will be accused of murder, pursued by federal agents, and targeted by assassins.

    BSquared67 says: "A rollicking thriller"
    "Our first serial mystery"
    Overall

    My wife and I listen to our audio books while driving and frequently pause the book to discuss some aspect of what we are hearing. The Chopin Manuscript and it's sequel were so wonderfully outrageous that we would exclaim at the end of each chapter at what that author was passing on to the next one. What delightful writing and narration. You are in for a real treat!
