    Military criminal investigator John Puller is drawn closer to home when his aunt is found dead in her house in Paradise, Florida. The local police have ruled the death as an accident, but Puller finds evidence to suggest that she may well have been murdered. On the surface the town lives up to its name, but as Puller digs deeper he realises that this town and its inhabitants are more akin to Hell than Paradise. His belief is confirmed as evidence of strange and inexplicable events come to light.

    I love Baldacci, Sandford and Lee Child. If you are into those authors as well you won't be disappointed. Also duo Oralgh Cassidy and Ron McLarty works great building atmosphere and tension. I hope they will read together more and more books. The only part of the book lacking a little bit is the ending, but still I recommend this book.

    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Story

    Somebody already mentioned reading this at one go. I started listening the book yesterday evening so i had to stop around 8AM because i was too tired but i finished after waking up. I think this is the best book i've read in years! I usually don't like female narrators but Carolyn McCormick voice and play feel like she was telling her own story which fits the audiobook very well.

    Like his father before him, Brian Holloway is a safe man. That is, his specialty is opening safes. Every job is a little mystery, and he has yet to encounter a lock he can't break or a box he can't crack. But the day Holloway gets called in to open a rare, antique safe in a famous author's library, his skills open a door that should have remained closed.

    Story

    As my headline says, this is a very short story.
    The beginning was a little bit boring but after a while I got goosbumps reading it, pretty scary story!
    It's worth the price but not worth spending a credit.

    Story

    Last year was 2 weeks in Thailand. I thought Thai was impossible to grasp. I've learned maybe 10 words. This year 3 months before visiting Thailand i started listening to lessons units 1 to 20. I was able to communicate on very basic level even with some native thais who didn't understand english at all. Next year i'll take lessons 20 to 40:) Also after taking 3 months lessons i was able to learn much more new words in Thailand than first time. Your ears get used to Thai language melody.

    John Puller is a former war hero and now the best military investigator in the U.S. Army’s Criminal Investigative Division. He is a loner with few possessions by preference, but he has an indomitable spirit and an unstoppable determination for finding the truth. His father was the most decorated U.S. Marine in history, but now resides in a nursing home far from his battlefield glory. Puller’s older brother, also a military vet, is serving a life sentence in Leavenworth Penitentiary. Puller is called out to a remote, rural area far from any military outpost to investigate into the brutal murder of a family....

    I've just finished listening to Zero Day. It's 5:16AM and I just had to finish! The story has really nice twist and keeps you engaged until the end. Highly recommended for all who like Baldacci/Child/Sandford.
