    Ricky Colenso travels to Bosnia to volunteer as an aid worker. A few weeks later, he disappears and is never heard from again. In the fog of that horrible place, the killer, too, has vanished. In a world that has forgotten right and wrong, there are few like Cal Dexter who can settle the score. And so, years later, a worldwide chase is on and Dexter begins to draw a net around the killer. But this time the CIA must find a way to stop Dexter before his quest for vengeance throws the world into chaos.

    "The master!!"
    Overall

    Forsyth again proves himself to be the master of suspense. As much as I like to read Clancy, Forsyth blows him out of the water with another masterful tale of heroism and perseverance. The narration is strong and the story is absolutely rivetting. This is well worth the money or one of your monthly book tokens. Truly wonderful. ENJOY!!

    English magicians were once the wonder of the known world, with fairy servants at their beck and call; they could command winds, mountains, and woods. But by the early 1800s they have long since lost the ability to perform magic. They can only write long, dull papers about it, while fairy servants are nothing but a fading memory.

    David says: "Hang in there!"
    "A modern day masterpiece."
    Overall

    This work is as close to a living masterpiece as any of us are want to find. What Ms. Clarke has achieved here is both rare and beautiful. Very few times in your lifetime do you come a cross a piece of fiction that makes you reconsider all that you have judged before it.

    With Jonathon Strange and Mr. Norrell, I believe I have found the greatest novel I have ever read. The narration is nothing short of masterful. There is absolutely NO REASON in the world why you should not purchase this title. None whatsoever. Buy. Enjoy.

    Peter Novak, one of the world's greatest men, has been kidnapped! Running out of time and hope, Novak's people turn to Paul Janson, legendary covert operative and assassin. Janson is retired, and nothing could lure him back - nothing except Peter Novak, who once saved Janson's life. "Ludlum's best since The Bourne Identity," raves Kirkus Reviews.

    Grady says: "Captivated me from the beginning"
    "A Tad Disappointing"
    Overall

    I wouldn't say this is terrible but it ain't great. The story seems to jump around with a rather tenuous thread holding things together at times. There are some nice scenes but half the time I was trying to my best to piece together their worldwide travels, especially in the 2nd half of the story. Like I said, it's okay. If you want excellence get "Avenger" by Frederick Forsyth or "The Company" by Robert Littell. This is long and very average.

    On New Year's Day, Detective Hieronymus "Harry" Bosch fields a call that a dog has found a bone - a bone that the dog's owner, a doctor, feels certain is human.

    Pamela says: "A good read"
    "Pretty disappointing stuff......."
    Overall

    I've reviewed quite a few books here on Audible and this is the only one where I have had cause to complain. This is boring, I mean really boring. The plot is languorous, the characters tiresome and the narration bland. The twist is unbelievably pointless, I was like.....this is it? Buy something else.

    In the latest from Nelson DeMille (author of The Lion's Game), Paul Brenner is called out of CID retirement to investigate the murder 30 years ago of an army lieutenant in Vietnam. Brenner's trip up country, with a beautiful American expatriate for company, will lead him to uncover an explosive, long-buried secret.

    James B says: "You Must Read Up Country"
    "Spectacular!"
    Overall

    A great read. Even better than "Lion's Den". Paul Brenner is a great character and a wisecracking smart-ass to boot. Buy it and enjoy. Another wonderful narration form Scot Brick. He is always excellent.

  • A Short History of Nearly Everything

    Bill Bryson has been an enormously popular author both for his travel books and for his books on the English language. Now, this beloved comic genius turns his attention to science. Although he doesn't know anything about the subject (at first), he is eager to learn, and takes information that he gets from the world's leading experts and explains it to us in a way that makes it exciting and relevant.

    Corby says: "Very informative, fun to listen to"
    "Simly Outstanding"
    Overall

    Brilliant. Outsatnding. Inspiring. Bryson's witty style transfered to everything you'll ever need to know!!

    BUY IT!!!!!
