    p>With time running out to stop the nuclear destruction of Tel Aviv, Dewey Andreas must defeat his most fearsome opponent yet. Off a quiet street in Brooklyn, New York, Israeli Special Forces commander Kohl Meir is captured by operatives of the Iranian secret service, who smuggle Meir back to Iran, where he is imprisoned, tortured, and prepared for a show trial. What they don’t know is that Meir was in New York to recruit Dewey Andreas for a secret operation.

    1. Ben Coes, he is a good writer of the caliber of Vince Flynn and Michael Connelly, I have enjoyed his characters and the twist the plot took.

    2. This book is a must read for anyone who enjoys Mystery/thriller. It is well written and as far as I am concerned it deserves a space on my bookcase. The book is solid, there is nothing trite about it, which I will not read. Dewey is a good character and while he isn't a womanizing man his character is very manly.
    3. The narrator does a good job with the character reenactment and he has a strong voice which brings Dewey and the others alive.

    I really liked reading this book.

    Lisbeth Salander—the heart of Larsson’s two previous novels—lies in critical condition, a bullet wound to her head, in the intensive care unit of a Swedish city hospital. She’s fighting for her life in more ways than one: if and when she recovers, she’ll be taken back to Stockholm to stand trial for three murders. With the help of her friend, journalist Mikael Blomkvist, she will not only have to prove her innocence, but also identify and denounce those in authority.

    Stieg Larsson is a very good author, his stories are gripping and strong. I recommend this book to anyone who likes thrillers. The book kept a good pace and the interlacing of characters and plots is excellent. I have read, listened and watched everyone of his books, just waiting for the next.

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    I just finished the Last Man, I was saving it for a special occasion, it is a wonderful book and Vince Flynn was a great writer. I am sorry I won't be finding out more about Mitch Rapp and his friends. Vince Flynn was a good writer from the beginning, I have read them all and not one of them raise the BS flag for me. His stories are plausible and great to read. Sorry you have left us so soon Vince Flynn, I have been scrambling to find someone to replace you but I cannot find anyone who is as good a writer and knew his subject as well.

    Mitch Rapp is a mean S.O.B with a good heart. I think I met him once. He is loyal, brave and sometimes down right crazy, but who could do this job better?

    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....

    Marine Biologist Doc Ford is hot on the trail of a dead friend’s wife. Apparently, the woman vanished into the steaming jungles of South America guided by a truly disgusting specimen of humanity. From Florida to Columbia and Panama, Doc traces their path, but a shadowy figure is following him - and the violence left in the wake of this individual is terrifying.

    This is a great book, I love the Doc Ford character and his crazy, ecsentric friends. It makes you feel as if Florida is a better place than it really is.

    It is 1944: Daniel, a soldier, legendary among the Norwegians fighting the advance of Bolshevism on the Russian front, is killed. Two years later, a wounded soldier wakes up in a Vienna hospital. He becomes involved with a young nurse, the consequences of which will ripple forward to the turn of the next century. In 1999, Harry Hole, alone again after having caused an embarrassment in the line of duty, has been promoted to inspector and is lumbered with surveillance duties. He is assigned the task of monitoring neo-Nazi activities....

    If you could sum up The Redbreast in three words, what would they be?

    Twisting, excellent plotting


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

    The whole book is memorable because it is so different than the regular rubbish sold in airports across the nation. Jo Nesbo gives you a thought provoking plot with twists and turns that are completely unanticipated. You can't miss one page or you will loose the story. Excellent writing and a very complex storyline. I loved it and wished more authors, including myself were able to tie things together so well.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    Americans will be shocked at how well this novel is written.
