    When the Secretary of the Navy's nephew says he believes that two colleagues at a U.S. naval base may be committing fraud, his uncle is skeptical. Reluctant to launch an official investigation based on a relative's vague suspicions, the secretary asks John Mahoney to send his troubleshooter, DeMarco, to check out the story. As DeMarco and his friend Emma, a retired CIA agent, began to investigate, they come to the terrifying realization that an espionage ring has infiltrated the naval base.

    Would you consider the audio edition of The Second Perimeter to be better than the print version?

    I haven't read the print verson


    Who was your favorite character and why?

    DeMarco. Here's a hero that's a little out of the norm. A lawyer who's never practiced law, works for a corrupt politician, yet gets the job done despite his boss


    What does Scott Brick bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    Scott Brick brings life to every book he narrates! "The Voice" infuses the characters with a personality.....charm, anger, frustration....emotions that don't always come through on a black and white page.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    Not your ordinary hero......

    When race caller and television presenter Mark Shillingford calls a race in which his twin sister, Clare, an accomplished and successful jockey, comes in second when she could have won, he believes the worst: that she lost on purpose, and the race was fixed. That night, Mark confronts Clare with his suspicions, she storms off after an argument - and it’s the last time Mark sees her alive. Hours later, Clare jumps to her death from the balcony of a London hotel...or so it seems. Devastated and guilty over her death, Mark goes in search of answers. What had led Clare to take her own life? Or was it not suicide at all?

    Would you try another book from Felix Francis and/or Martin Jarvis?

    Maybe from Felix Francis and certainly to Martin Jarvis


    Would you ever listen to anything by Felix Francis again?

    I'm not sure....Bloodline was not what I've come to expect from Felix Francis. This book made me feel like I was reading a biography of the character instead of a work of fiction. I read for entertainment and this book didn't do much entertaining.


    Which scene was your favorite?

    None that really stood out for me.


    If you could play editor, what scene or scenes would you have cut from Dick Francis's Bloodline?

    I would have cut a lot of the introspection of the main character. As I said, this book definitely lacked most of the mystery I've come to expect from a Felix Francis book.


    Any additional comments?

    This book was almost boring....I was tempted to turn it off several times. The only reason I finished it was because I really don't like to not finish a book...but this one came close.

    When an American defense contractor goes to Iran to sell missile technology, the CIA knows all about it, thanks to a spy in Tehran. But when the story is leaked to an ambitious journalist, the spy is burned, brutally tortured, and executed. The director of the CIA isn’t about to let the callous sacrifice of his valuable spy go unpunished.

    Would you recommend this audiobook to a friend? If so, why?

    Yes! Mr. Lawson adds more depth to his characters with each book


    What was one of the most memorable moments of House Justice?

    The meeting in the Oval Office


    Which scene was your favorite?

    The final meeting between Mahoney and LaFontain


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A weeks' worth of entertainment in just one movie!


    Any additional comments?

    Having recently "discovered" Mr. Lawsons' books, I am listening my way through them in order and I have enjoyed each successive book more than the previous one, and I can't imagine anyone but Joe Barrett narrating the books.....he really brings the characters to life!

    First there was the bomb meant for the Baltimore Harbor Tunnel; then a private plane headed straight for the White House is shot down. An atmosphere of fear and panic overruns the country, and when a senator proposes to run background checks on all Muslims and deport any who aren’t citizens, his bill gains surprising traction. John Mahoney, the Speaker of the House, is not pleased. But Mahoney has a connection to one of the attackers, one he wants kept a secret....

    Story
    Would you listen to House Rules again? Why?

    Yes! I really liked this book, too. I plan to work my way through the entire series. There are books that you can listen to again and again and I think that this might be one of them.


    Did the plot keep you on the edge of your seat? How?

    Well, I did stay up late in order to finish the book....


    Have you listened to any of Joe Barrett’s other performances before? How does this one compare?

    No, this was the first time that I had listened to Joe Barett. Scott Brick narrated the first book of the series, and I was hoping he would complete the series, but I enjoyed the narration enough to purchase the third book in the series. There are books that I won't listen to, although I love the author, because I don't like the narrator.


    Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

    Yes. Laughed at Emma quite often....defintely a woman who knows how to get her own way.
