    Will Lee ran from a life of Southern wealth and privilege to spend a peaceful summer on the coast of Ireland. But there is no peace in this beautiful, troubled land … Restless and dissatisfied, Will dreams of shipbuilding and sailing on crystal-blue waters. Then an explosion of senseless violence drags the young American drifter into a lethal game of terror and revenge. Now Will Lee must run for his life from a bloody past that is not his own.

    I liked them a lot.


    If you could rename Run Before the Wind, what would you call it?

    Nothing comes to mind!


    Any additional comments?

    I had listened to all of the Will Lee series prior to listen to this. As far as I know the audio version of this one had not been available until fairly recently. The Will Lee series is one of my all time favorites, and I have listened to audio books constantly for close to 20 years.

    Just in time for the run-up to the 2012 election, the bestselling author of Do the Right Thing and A Simple Christmas takes his vision even further, offering clear solutions to the key issues facing our nation in the Obama era. Politicians, lobbyists, and so-called experts spend too much time arguing and focusing on the differences that divide us. As a result, those in Washington are obsessed with the win or loss of their side and not with actually solving problems.....

    After a shocking loss, Stone Barrington is at loose ends, unsure if he wants to stay in New York and continue his work as a partner at Woodman & Weld. It comes as a welcome relief when he's summoned to Washington, D.C., by President Will Lee. The president has a special operation that calls for Stone's unique skill set, and it's a mission that will reunite him with his former partner in crime and in bed, Holly Barker.

    Would you recommend this book to a friend? Why or why not?

    Yes, but not strongly. I thought the story had several holes in the detective work, and a couple of dumb conclusions on the part of our heroes Stone and Dino. Appeared they were thinking with the wrong head on several occassions. Stuart seems to be fascinated with Teddy Faye who appears yet again. I've about had all of the exposure to him I care for.


    Would you be willing to try another book from Stuart Woods? Why or why not?

    Yes. Woods is one of my favorite authors, and everyone has a not so good effort from time to time.

    The simple story of Who Moved My Cheese? reveals profound truths about change that give people and organizations a quick and easy way to succeed in changing times. Who Moved My Cheese? is an enlightening story of four characters who live in a "Maze" and look for "Cheese" to nourish them and make them happy. Two are mice named Sniff and Scurry, and two are mouse-size people named Hem and Haw.

    Ken Follett's World Without End was a global phenomenon, a work of grand historical sweep beloved by millions of readers and acclaimed by critics. Fall of Giants is his magnificent new historical epic. The first novel in The Century Trilogy, it follows the fates of five interrelated families - American, German, Russian, English, and Welsh - as they move through the world-shaking dramas of the First World War, the Russian Revolution, and the struggle for women's suffrage.

    Louis says: "Loved it and learned alot."
