    Story
    (837)

    A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    Patricia says: "Disappointing"

    Overall

    It keeps going and going and going. This is one of the first Scott Brick narrations that I couldn't wait to end. I made it through but I felt like saying to the author, "ENOUGH already." Too many murders, too many subplots. I can handle a good mystery but this was too much to take. My advice: skip it.

    When an American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, the CIA knows all about it, thanks to a spy in Tehran. But when the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist, the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and executed. The director of the CIA isn’t about to let the callous sacrifice of his valuable spy go unpunished.

    Robert says: "Fast-paced adventure with rich characters"
    "He's Back!"
    Overall

    It is great to see a new arrival from Mike Lawson on Audible. In this story, DeMarco is faced with a twisted conspiracy to sort out. The plot gets a little confusing at times, but the story is well written, the characters are multi dimensional and the ending is satisfying. The narrarator balances his voice between female, male, American and foreign accents. I enjoyed this listen and hope to see more by this author available soon!

    Story

    A writer visits his retired grandparents in Florida to document their experience during the infamous siege of Leningrad. His grandmother won't talk about it, but his grandfather reluctantly consents. The result is the captivating odyssey of two young men trying to survive against desperate odds. Lev Beniov considers himself "built for deprivation." He's small, smart, and insecure, a Jewish virgin too young for the army, who spends his nights working as a volunteer firefighter with friends from his building.

    Paul says: "Stunning Tale. Great Narration."
    "One of the best"
    Overall

    This book rivals "The Company" for my all time favorite audiobook. I loved the main characters and the narrator was terrific!

    Meet Jonathan Quinn: a freelance operative with a take-no-prisoners style and the heart of a loner. His job? Professional "cleaner". Nothing too violent, just disposing of bodies. But his latest assignment will change everything. The job seemed simple enough: investigating a suspicious case of arson. But when a dead body turns up, and Quinn's handlers at "the Office" turn strangely silent, he knows he's in over his head. With only a handful of clues, Quinn struggles to find out why someone wants him dead.

    Bernie says: "excellent from start to finish"
    "Pay attention to the other reviews..."
    Overall

    I wish I had and not wasted a credit on this book. I love intelligent, witty and suspenseful books. This looked as if it may fit the bill. It doesn't, not even close. The other reviews warned the characters are not interesting, the action is slow and the narraration (sorry Scott Brick) is tedious. I believe someone compared his reading to William Shatner....I wished I took the advice of others and skipped this clunker.

  • Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ's Childhood Pal

    Story

    Verily, the story Biff has to tell is a miraculous one, filled with remarkable journeys, magic, healings, kung fu, corpse reanimations, demons, and hot babes. Even the considerable wiles and devotion of the Savior's pal may not be enough to divert Joshua from his tragic destiny. But there's no one who loves Josh more (except maybe "Maggie," Mary of Magdalan) and Biff isn't about to let his extraordinary pal suffer and ascend without a fight.

    Hope says: "A Worthy Book, indeed"
    "One of my favorites of all time"
    Overall

    I just can't seem to delete this one from my ipod. I go back to different parts just for a good laugh during the day.

    This is one of the books I am recommending to all of my friends, church goers and athiests alike. It is well written and clever.

    Pick this one up, You won't regret it!

    Someone is posing as the outspoken, blue-eyed, blond attorney and is wreaking havoc around town, apparently determined to destroy everything Bennie loves. Only one person can pull off this double deception: Bennie's identical twin sister, Alice Connelly. But as far as Bennie knows, Alice left Philly long ago and never looked back.

    Sheila McGuire says: "Lisa Scottoline does it again! :)"
    "Good story, Horrible reader"
    Overall

    One of the most frustrating things about this story is the reader. I can hear every slurp, sniffle and gasp and it really takes away from the story itself. I enjoyed the story but I would caution any listener that is sensitive to pronunciation, timing, and throat noises, pick up something else. It makes me wonder if anyone checked this piece for sound quality before releasing.

    The Executive Board of an exclusive men's club meets to talk about 9/11 and finalize a retaliation plan, known by a code name: Wild Fire. That weekend, a member of the Federal Anti-Terrorist Task Force is found dead. It's up to Detective John Corey and his wife, FBI Agent Kate Mayfield, to unravel a terrifying plot that starts with the Custer Hill Club and ends with American cities locked in the crosshairs of a nuclear device.

    Joseph says: "Good, but the series is getting forced."
    "Very disappointing"
    Overall

    I waited anxiously for the next DeMille installment. I really enjoyed Lion's Game and was suprisingly satisfied with NightFall. This story, however, dragged and droned until I couldn't wait for it to be over. I wanted this story to explode with all the promise of a first rate thriller, but it seemed DeMille played it very safe and easy. The story never got off the ground, the characters were likable at first then got annoying. The puns and explitives were overused. Overall, a big disappointment to me as a DeMille fan.

    When the Secretary of the Navy's nephew says he believes that two colleagues at a U.S. naval base may be committing fraud, his uncle is skeptical. Reluctant to launch an official investigation based on a relative's vague suspicions, the secretary asks John Mahoney to send his troubleshooter, DeMarco, to check out the story. As DeMarco and his friend Emma, a retired CIA agent, began to investigate, they come to the terrifying realization that an espionage ring has infiltrated the naval base.

    Vincent says: "I want more"
    "great listen"
    Overall

    Better than the Inside Line (but I enjoyed that one too). Great story, plot, dialogue. Highly recommended.

  • The Company: A Novel of the CIA

    "If Robert Littell didn't invent the American spy novel," says Tom Clancy, "he should have." In this spectacular Cold-War-as-Alice-in-Wonderland epic, Littell, "the American le Carre," takes us down the rabbit hole and into the labyrinthine world of espionage that has been the CIA for the last half-century. "Ostensibly a single novel, The Company can also be listened to as an anthology of cracking good spy stories," says (Publishers Weekly).

    Cynthia says: "Hang on to your Hat"
    "Fantastic-well worth the investment"
    Overall

    I usually buy my books with the credits on my account, but I didn't have any left for this book. This one was well worth every penny. I learned about events that were given one paragraph in my history book. The characters seem to come alive with the narrator's skill. Don't miss this book!!
