    Jennifer Parker, a brilliant and beautiful young lawyer, survives shattering career setbacks to become one of the most successful defense attorneys in America. Jennifer's strength and beauty win the love of 2 powerful men, but earn her the implacable hatred of a third. Adam Warner, man of integrity, born to lead his country, is tied by honor and obligation to his wife. Michael Moretti, compelling Mafia boss, nearly destroys Jennifer's career before it begins.

    If you could sum up Rage of Angels in three words, what would they be?

    A Good Book


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    Jennifer Parker


    How could the performance have been better?

    A better reader that did not stop for 45 seconds between words and paragraphs. More than once I turn my phone on and off thinking it had stopped working.

    As the U.S. Navy searches for weapons-grade plutonium that has been smuggled by terrorists out of Russia, a submarine mishap in the Black Sea brings the United States and Russia to the brink of nuclear war. It is a race against the clock, with Russian missiles activated and programmed for American cities.

    What did you like best about Black Sea Affair? What did you like least?

    Loved the story good theme, good story.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of Black Sea Affair?

    All was great the story has a good line and keeps you waiting for the next section


    Would you be willing to try another one of James Adams???s performances?

    No, NEVER, NOT EVER AGAIN. HE speaks bristish English with an American book ti just does not fit. Does not truly understand American English and it way of saying things. Most absurb redention of southern person speaking. His reading was so poor had to leave story several times to rest listen to something else then come back again.

    The crime of the century begins without a hitch. On July 5th, 2070, as it's about to be launched, the starship Alabama is hijacked - by her captain and crew. In defiance of the repressive government of The United Republic of Earth, they replace her handpicked passengers with political dissidents and their families. These become Earth's first pioneers in the exploration of space...

    Michael says: "It gets better"
    "Allen Steele good write not a reader of books"
    Overall

    Great book and good story. Boring monitone by author who tries to read the novel. He has such a monitone that it took me three times to start and be able to listen to the book. He should always allow a professional reader do his stories. If he narrates I will not purchase another of his books. With a proper reader with inflections for characters I would have rated this book a 4.5

    Devilishly clever, Next blends fact and fiction into a breathless tale of a new world where nothing is what it seems, and a set of new possibilities can open at every turn. Next challenges our sense of reality and notions of morality. Balancing the comic and bizarre with the genuinely frightening and disturbing, Next shatters our assumptions and reveals shocking new choices where we least expect.

    Ronald says: "interesting topic - dull, boring, confusing book"
    "Worse book by him"
    Overall

    I normally am first to say that this writer is awesome. But Next is the worse written book I have listened too in my life. Too many themes, many left behind, too many people some who are never explained or seen again. It would be much better without so many theads left hanging. Good theme, but poor writing and organization.

    Two brutal murders and millions of missing dollars have led Castillo and his team to Uruguay, where the man they seek is murdered right before their eyes. Who is responsible? Most likely, the people higher up in the dirty-money chain, those willing to risk anything to keep their secrets from being revealed. They've left just enough of a trail, though, for Castillo to pick up the scent and to follow it wherever it takes him. He ends up...well, not exactly where he expected.

    Ed says: "Great story even better narrator"
    "Great WEB Griffin The Hunters"
    Overall

    As usual a great novel with real detail in its script so it makes it real life not fantasy. The reader was one of the best I have ever heard with great control of his voice and characters. Always enjoy W.E.B. Griffin and wish we had more unabridged.
