    In the waning days of World War II, the Japanese tried a last desperate measure, a different kind of kamikaze mission, this one carried out by two submarines bound for the west coast of the United States, their cargo a revolutionary new strain of deadly virus.

    I love Cussler so this was just another good book. Chemical warfare is probably in our future so this one really made me think that the way we go may not be pleasant.

    After rescuing the President from kidnappers, Navy SEAL turned Secret Service agent Scot Harvath shifts his attentions to rooting out, capturing or killing all those responsible for the plot. As he prepares to close out his list, a bloody and twisted trail of clues points towards one man - the world's most feared, most ruthless terrorist, Hashim Nidal. Nidal has assembled an international league of Islamic terrorist networks in an ingenious plot to topple both Israel and America.

    I enjoyed the book but there were a couple of stretches. That however, is true of plenty of authors. I still enjoyed the book but the thing that caught my attention was Armand Schultz. He has a wonderful range. I was so caught up in the story until I realized how authentic he sounded. Never lost the story line but enjoyed it more once I realized what I was missing.

    Number-one New York Times best-selling author Harlan Coben set huge sales records with last year’s Six Years - and he’s poised to do it again in his next breathtaking stand-alone thriller. Harlan Coben, author of six consecutive instant number-one New York Times best sellers and a total of 24 award-winning, best-selling, and internationally acclaimed novels, returns with another ripped-from-real-life thriller full of impossibly high emotional stakes and the real-to-life characters for which he has become famous.

    Harlan Coben is one of my favorites between serious to Myron Bolitar. I enjoyed it so much I had a time with the transition to my next book. But I imagine if you listen a great deal you'll know exactly what I mean. For me, this was one of those stories I wanted to go on and on.

    There was one factor that the terrorists didn’t take into account when they struck the Capitana oil platform off the coast of Colombia - slaughtering much of the crew and blowing up the platform - and that was the Capitana crew chief, Dewey Andreas. Dewey, former Army Ranger and Delta, survives the attack, rescuing as many of his men as possible. But the battle has just begun....

    Sometimes time seems to stretch while waiting for favorite authors to publish the next book. So this gives us another character to follow which is great in my opinion.

    Buried within the black ops budgets of the Department of Defense, a new spy agency has been created. Unfettered by the oversight of self-serving politicians, it reports only to a secret panel of military insiders. Its job is to target Americas enemies - both foreign and domestic - under a charter of three simple words: Find, Fix, and Finish.

    The night after the fourth of July, Layton Carlson, Jr., of Red Wing, Minnesota, finally got lucky. And unlucky.

    He’d picked the perfect spot to lose his virginity to his girlfriend, an abandoned farmyard in the middle of cornfields: nice, private, and quiet. The only problem was...something smelled bad - like, really bad. He mentioned it to a county deputy he knew, and when the cop took a look, he found a body stuffed down a cistern. And then another, and another. By the time Lucas Davenport was called in, the police were up to 15 bodies and counting.

    The last several Sandford books I've read and listened to have been a disappointment to me. This one sounds like someone lit a fire under Sandford and it's the best I've heard from him in a while. I enjoy the Virgil Flowers books, some more than others of course but they just don't have the Davenport kick. Hope this lasts.

    Not the best Crais book I've listened to but I didn't put it down. Had to get into this one before I actually enjoyed it but still thought the ending was a bit of a let-down. First book I've read with the bomb focus and that part I found interesting.

    Enjoyable, not a bad book.

    Sheriff Walt Longmire had already rounded up a sizable posse of devoted readers when the A&E television series Longmire sent the Wyoming lawman’s popularity skyrocketing. Now, in Any Other Name, Walt is sinking into high-plains winter discontent when his former boss, Lucian Conally, asks him to take on a mercy case in an adjacent county. Detective Gerald Holman is dead and Lucian wants to know what drove his old friend to take his own life.

    I've listened to all the Walt Longmire books and I've seen the TV series. The TV series just didn't cut it for me. Maybe it would have been better had I not heard George Guidall but The Cheyenne Nation played football and I'm under the impression that his character is a large man. And who could give a fair depiction of Vic on TV.

    Like all the rest, I loved it.

    No one could have imagined Odd Thomas ever leaving the quirky comfort of Pico Mundo. Yet leave it he has, for a monastery. But Odd has a knack for finding trouble no matter where he goes, and a killer is stalking the ancient holy halls. Odd is about to meet an enemy who eclipses any he has yet encountered.

    Koontz can be so many things and for some reason I put the "Odd" series aside. Finally had a Netflix night and watched the first. Movies are seldom as good as the book in my experience but glad I did. Moved right on to Brother Odd and thoroughly enjoyed it. Don't know that I would have followed through had I not seen the movie. Gave me a better idea of the environment.

    It seems at first like a simple, tragic story. Tyler Wingo, a teenage boy, learns the awful news that his father, a soldier, was killed in action in Afghanistan. Then the extraordinary happens: Tyler receives a communication from his father...after his supposed death. Tyler hires Sean and Michelle to solve the mystery surrounding his father. But their investigation quickly leads to deeper, more troubling questions. Could Tyler's father really still be alive? What was his true mission? Could Tyler be the next target? Sean and Michelle soon realize that they've stumbled on to something bigger and more treacherous than anyone could have imagined.

    Alo Nudger, the St. Louis ex-cop is both the most normal of all fictional private eyes and the most surprising. He's got an uncertain stomach he doses with nonstop antacids; he doesn't like guns or violence; and since he doesn't feel any special affinity for what he does, from nosing into people's dirty laundry to confronting perps with the consequences of their misdeeds, and makes more than his share of mistakes, it's only natural that his business cards identify him in typographical error as a private defective.

    When I got into this book all I could think of was how long before I gave up. Took about 30 or 45 minutes.

    But when I got to thinking about the story line I realized it wasn't so bad, not up to the usual Lutz book but not a total dog. As much as I hate to berate a narrator, I think that's what makes the book such a downer. Lutz must have liked Bob Walter so maybe I should deduct a point. I'm sure Mr. Walter does a fine job with other books but for me, a total zip!

    I saw some of the reviews, none good, but pig headed as I am still gave it a try since how bad could Lutz be?

    I'd say spend your credit elsewhere.
