    David Loogan is living in Ann Arbor with Detective Elizabeth Waishkey and her daughter, Sarah. He's settled into a quiet routine as editor of the mystery magazine Gray Streets - until one day he finds a manuscript outside his door. It begins: "I killed Henry Kormoran." Anthony Lark has a list of names: Terry Dawtrey, Sutton Bell, Henry Kormoran. To his eyes, the names glow red on the page. They move. They breathe. The people on the list have little in common, except that 17 years ago they were involved in a notorious robbery.

    Would you try another book from Harry Dolan and/or Erik Davies?

    I read Harry Dolans first book Bad Things Happen this summer just before Very Bad Men. I thought the first book was a lot better than this one, so I was a little dissapointed. But overall it is a good listen, and worth the time. The book keeps you interested and takes new turns all the time, but at times it was a little to complicated and I started confusing names and fell out of the plot somehow. Anyway, I reccommend it for crime lovers and especially if you have a relationship to the city of Ann Arbor.

    From the streets of Iraq to the mountaintops of Afghanistan and to the third floor of Osama Bin Laden's compound, operator Mark Owen of the U.S. Naval Special Warfare Development Group - commonly known as SEAL Team Six - has been a part of some of the most memorable special operations in history, as well as countless missions that never made headlines. No Easy Day puts listeners alongside Owen and the other handpicked members of the 24-man team as they train for the biggest mission of their lives.

    Story

    I had expectations of this book to be more focused on the mission that killed Bin Laden, and the details around that mission. Instead this books first half is about the main character and his personal life and background, as well as life as being a navy seal in general. Very macho and did not like this part much. Reflections of the narrator as well were poor and naive. Interesting part about the Bin Laden mission though, but too short.
