    Best-selling author Dee Henderson's acclaimed novels are an irresistible blend of suspense, romance and spirituality. More than a million copies of Henderson's books are in print, and she has won many prizes, including the Christy, the RITA and the National Reader's Choice Award. FBI special agent Dave Richman loves hostage negotiator Kate O'Malley. But keeping her safe is another matter entirely, one that requires deep trust in God.

    Would you listen to The Negotiator again? Why?

    I will listen to the Negotiator again and again. It is like a good movie that you will gleen something new each time your hear it.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of The Negotiator?

    The moment Kate was in church and realized what faith is.


    Have you listened to any of Tom Stechschulte’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I do remember him on any other books, but he has a voice that melts me to my soul.


    Was there a moment in the book that particularly moved you?

    Again the church - moment of knowing for Kate.


    Any additional comments?

    The characters could all be someone we know. The situation could happen, but the intergrating of the characters, explaining their emotions, the background of each person. was amazing. I feel as if I could see them in person I would know them instantly.

    When a hedge fund billionaire hires Stone Barrington to talk some sense into his wayward son, it seems like an easy enough job; no one knows the hidden sins and temptations of the ultra-wealthy better than Stone. But as Stone and his erstwhile protégé, Herbie Fisher, probe deeper into the case - and an old one comes back to haunt him - he realizes that even he may have underestimated just how far some people will go to cover up their crimes…and plan new ones.

    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    The ending!! No, the beginning, no wait, the whole darn book.


    Have you listened to any of Ron McLarty and Orlagh Cassidy ’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    I have listen to many of Ron's. Orlagh was great too!

    Both, laughed, cried, gasped, was amazed and surprised.

    As a therapist specializing in sexual issues, psychiatrist Dr. Morgan Snow isn't easily shocked, or shaken, as readers of the popular "Butterfield Institute" novels know. There are times, however, when the need for her services leads her out of the office... and into unfamiliar worlds. In these stories, the therapist matches her wits -and her training - against three men of mystery: Jack Reacher, John Rain, and Cotton Malone.

    Rose says: "Thank you for the free story, however........"
    "Interesting listening to this book."

    Known by his alias, "Oliver Stone," John Carr is the most wanted man in America. With two pulls of the trigger, the men who destroyed Stone's life and kept him in the shadows were finally silenced. But his freedom comes at a steep price: The assassinations he carried out prompt the highest levels of the U.S. government to unleash a massive manhunt. Behind the scenes, master spy Macklin Hayes is playing a very personal game of cat and mouse. He, more than anyone, wants Stone dead.
