    John Carr, aka Oliver Stone-once the most skilled assassin his country ever had-stands in Lafayette Park in front of the White House, perhaps for the last time. The president has personally requested that Stone serve his country again on a high-risk, covert mission. Though he's fought for decades to leave his past career behind, Stone has no choice but to say yes. Then Stone's mission changes drastically before it even begins. It's the night of a state dinner honoring the British prime minister.

    Ramon says: "Great story with nice twists"
    "Triumphant"
    Overall

    Perhaps the best book he has ever written and certainly the best of the Camel Club. Ron McLarty is a brilliant narrator. The sound effects were a nice addition. Thanks for the many sleepless nights I stayed up listening to this story unfold.

  • Beach Boys' Pet Sounds (33 1/3 Series)

    Story

    Pet Sounds is, rightly, one of the most celebrated pop albums ever released. It has also been written about, pored over, and analyzed more than most other albums put together. In this disarming book, Jim Fusilli focuses primarily on the emotional core of the album, on Brian Wilson's pitch-perfect cry of despair. In doing so, he brings to life the search for equilibrium and acceptance that still gives Pet Sounds its heart almost four decades after its release.

    Andy says: "Surf's Up"
    "This book is like an ear worm"
    Overall

    I call music that you can't get out of your head an ear worm. It is like that jingle from a commercial. Mr. Fusilli's book is like that --- which now that I think about it is an appropriate way to describe it. It wasn't until I finished that I realized it had no music yet the Beach Boys' songs and sounds are still in my ears. A very benevolent ear worm. Thank you Mr. Fusilli for living in my ear.

    Story

    When you're the best at what you do, it's not always easy to walk away. Nathan McBride was retired. The trained Marine sniper and covert CIA operative had put the violence of his former life behind him. But not anymore. A deep-cover FBI agent has disappeared along with one ton of powerful Semtex explosive, enough to unleash a disaster of international proportions. The U.S. government has no choice but to coax Nathan out of retirement.

    Ed says: "Sniper thriller par excellence"
    "Wonderful"
    Overall

    Wonderful audio book, wonderful book; good narrator (except for women's voices) but I can overlook this narrator's treatment of women as sounding prissy; he should get married; he does the same with Lee Child's books.

    In late 2003, in his column in Entertainment Weekly, Stephen King called The Memory of Running "the best novel you won't read this year." This glowing endorsement of the audiobook resulted in Ron McLarty receiving a $2 million two-book deal from Viking Penguin. Also, Warner Brothers has shelled out big bucks for the movie rights to The Memory of Running, for which McLarty will write the script.

    Neal says: "Funny and Fascinating, A Wonderful Book"
    "Perhaps the best audio book I've ever heard"
    Overall

    It has been a couple of weeks since I tore through this audio book, listening well into the night. I didn't want it to end. It might be that as a hard copy book it would be confusing, but as an audio book it was easy to follow; not only is the story wonderful but the narrator is excellent. My only problem was removing the sound of his voice from my head; a veritable earworm. Perhaps one of the best books I have heard.
