    CIA counterterrorism operative Mitch Rapp falls prey to government forces with an agenda of their own after Dr. Irene Kennedy is named the successor to dying CIA Director Thomas Stansfield—a choice that enrages many inside the world’s most powerful intelligence agency. Her detractors will resort to extreme measures to prevent her from taking the reins—which makes Rapp an expendable asset. But Mitch Rapp is no one’s pawn, and he will stop at nothing to find out who has set him up.

    William says: "A great novel nearly ruined by the reader."
    "Pity the story ends abruptly w/ no finish. Sad."

    What did you like best about The Third Option? What did you like least?

    Great story! Cannot believe it ended without finishing the last part of the story


    If you’ve listened to books by Vince Flynn before, how does this one compare?

    As always, a great story. Cannot believe the unfinished ending


    What did you like about the performance? What did you dislike?

    Great performance


    Do you think The Third Option needs a follow-up book? Why or why not?

    YES!!! The story was not complete! Book ended before ends were tied up. Very disappointed in that. Otherwise, it was a great book.

  • Mile 81

    At Mile 81 on the Maine turnpike is a boarded up rest stop, a place where high school kids drink and get into the kind of trouble high school kids have always gotten into. It’s the place where Pete Simmons goes when his older brother, who’s supposed to be looking out for him, heads off to the gravel pit to play “paratroopers over the side”. Pete, armed only with the magnifying glass he got for his 10th birthday, finds a discarded bottle of vodka in the boarded up burger shack and drinks enough to pass out.

    Mary Z says: "Nailed it!"
    "Really disappointing on many levels"

    Story
    What disappointed you about Mile 81?

    The story line was high school level. Although written in wonderful Stephen King style, it lacks any depth and the plot really was a poor take-off of Christine. Besides being a very short story it was unfulfilling.


    What do you think your next listen will be?

    Debating that now.


    You didn’t love this book... but did it have any redeeming qualities?

    Not really. I still do enjoy how Stephen Kings describes his characters.
