    More than a million listeners have thrilled to Bill O'Reilly's Killing Lincoln, the can't-stop-listening work of nonfiction about the shocking assassination that changed the course of American history. Now the anchor of The O'Reilly Factor recounts in gripping detail the brutal murder of John Fitzgerald Kennedy—and how a sequence of gunshots on a Dallas afternoon not only killed a beloved president but also sent the nation into the cataclysmic division of the Vietnam War and its culture-changing aftermath.

    Whether you love Bill O'Reilly or not, you have to give him and Martin Dugard credit for writing a great book on a pivotal time in American history. I learned something new with every chapter ... you will, too!

    In the small city of Strattenburg, there are many lawyers, and though he’s only 13 years old, Theo Boone thinks he’s one of them. Theo knows every judge, policeman, court clerk—and a lot about the law. He dreams of being a great trial lawyer, of a life in the courtroom. But Theo finds himself in court much sooner than expected. Because he knows so much—maybe too much—he is suddenly dragged into the middle of a sensational murder trial.

    This is a different Grisham. Still good courtroom action, but from the kid perspective. I have every Theo book, and enjoy them over and over again.

    Moved by the injustice inflicted on a missionary family in the Middle East, young hotshot attorney Brad Carson files an unprecedented civil-rights suit against Saudi Arabia and the ruthless head of the Muttawa, the Islamic Religious Police. The lawsuit unleashes powerful forces that will stop at nothing to vindicate the Arabian kingdom.

    Story

    If you enjoy courtroom action, then you'll like Randy Singer's "Directed Verdict." The plot is very plausible, especially in our current world. There are enough twists and turns to keep one guessing. And Singer's manner of presenting the Gospel is handled in a genuine fashion ... direct, but not obnoxious.
    Cameron Beierle is a capable narrator. I felt that he sometimes got his characters confused, but rarely enough so as not to kill the book for me.

    Detective Boone Drake has just masterminded the most massive sting in Chicago history, bringing down the heads of not only the biggest street gangs in the city but also the old crime syndicate. The story is the biggest in decades, and the Chicago Police Department must protect the key witness at all costs. Despite top secret plans to transfer the witness ahead of his testimony before the grand jury, an attempt is made on his life.

    This is one of the few books where the 2nd in the series was actually better than the first! If you enjoy books that are believable, and narration that "fits" this is a really good listen.

    Troy Phelan is a self-made billionaire, one of the richest men in the United States. He is also eccentric, reclusive, confined to a wheelchair, and looking for a way to die. His potential heirs, to no one's surprise - especially Troy's - are circling like vultures. But Troy shocks them all when he leaves his fortune to an estranged, illegitimate daughter.

    I have read and/or listened to every John Grisham book I could get my hands on, and The Testament is definitely one of my favorites. The story line is riveting. Frank Muller's narration is perfect, especially for conveying the timelessness of the Amazon river system. And the life-changing message of the Gospel is made clear and believable. Great book!

All non-Aryans - especially Jews like Jacob and his family - are treated like dogs. When tragedy strikes during one terrible night of violence, Jacob flees and joins rebel forces working to undermine the regime. But after a raid goes horribly wrong, Jacob finds himself in a living nightmare - trapped in a crowded, stinking car on the train to the Auschwitz death camp.

    Theodore Boone is back in a new adventure, and the stakes are higher than ever.... When his best friend, April, disappears from her bedroom in the middle of the night, no one, not even Theo Boone - who knows April better than anyone - has answers. As fear ripples through his small hometown and the police hit dead ends, it's up to Theo to use his legal knowledge and investigative skills to chase down the truth and save April.

    John Grisham, with his Theo Boone series, has proven again that he's a master of the legal genre, and that he can even make it fun for younger readers.
    Richard Thomas does a good job of reading, without trying to fake a bunch of character voices.

    Why we think it’s a great listen: Seabiscuit was a runaway success, and Hillenbrand’s done it again with another true-life account about beating unbelievable odds. On a May afternoon in 1943, an Army Air Forces bomber crashed into the Pacific Ocean and disappeared, leaving only a spray of debris and a slick of oil, gasoline, and blood. Then, on the ocean surface, a face appeared.....

Much to their delight, the money is pouring in. But now they've ensnared the wrong man and the Brethren's days of marking time are over.

    Given the importance of what they do, and the controversies that often surround them, and the violent people they sometimes confront, it is remarkable that in the history of this country only four active federal judges have been murdered. Judge Raymond Fawcett has just become number five.... Nothing is as it seems and everything’s fair game in this wickedly clever new novel from John Grisham, the undisputed master of the legal thriller.

    Having been a Grisham fan for many years, The Racketeer was a unique adventure into the twists and turns of our justice system and those whose lives intersect it.
    I don't always agree with Grisham's conclusions, but I appreciate that he challenges my thinking.
