    Could you survive on your own, in the wild, with everyone out to make sure you don't live to see the morning? In the ruins of a place once known as North America lies the nation of Panem, a shining Capitol surrounded by 12 outlying districts. The Capitol is harsh and cruel and keeps the districts in line by forcing them all to send one boy and one girl between the ages of 12 and 18 to participate in the annual Hunger Games, a fight to the death on live TV.

    Overall

    And I have recommended it to friends. I thought the narrator was very good, and the story line different from the usual. I listen to books while I work out, and I got in a lot more time at the gym listening to this book.

    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"
    "Excellent!!"
    Overall

    If I could, I would give this just one more star, as it is beyond average. This book received the golden touch by the narrator, Dick Hill, who could probably read me the back of a cereal box and I would be enthralled. But to the credit of the author, this book was well written and detailed enough to bring the visual scenes to life. The narration was just the frosting on the cake.

    A woman is found murdered in the woods with a very special watch on her wrist, and what seemed a simple case soon escalates into a nightmare. The criminal methods of some of the most infamous killers of all time are being replicated by a new predator who stalks and strikes victims with a cunning brilliance. No one can understand the murderer's motives or who the next victim will be.

    Patricia says: "Disappointing"
    "Another Home Run for Baldacci"
    Overall

    I cannot get enough of this author. I look forward to more intrigue with the famous twists and turns that only Baldacci can tie together supremely at the end of his novels.

    When an American cargo ship off the coast of Indonesia is seized by terrorists and its crew slaughtered, the sitting Congress demands revenge. The president's refusal to react aggressively leads to mounting resentment. Then an ambitious young congressional assistant, Jim Dillon, discovers a long-forgotten clause in America's Constitution that could be used to wrest power from the chief executive - inciting a devastating constitutional crisis and plunging the country into chaos.

    Steven Morris says: "Fantasitc story!"
    "Superb!"
    Overall

    I have discovered a new author in Huston, and he takes you into the story so clearly that you feel like you are part of the action. This one takes top billing from me. I look forward to more. Great narration!

    Eve Dallas is a New York police lieutenant hunting for a ruthless killer. In over 10 years on the force, she's seen it all - and knows that her survival depends on her instincts. And she's going against every warning telling her not to get involved with Roarke, an Irish billionaire - and suspect in Eve's murder investigation. But passion and seduction have rules of their own, and it's up to Eve to take a chance in the arms of a man she knows nothing about - except the addictive hunger of needing his touch.

    Felicity Fairchild says: "Don't Judge the Series by the First Book!"
    "Great Story Line"
    Overall

    I really loved the story and the details were exceptional. The only poroblem I had with this story, was it ended too quickly. I would like to have known a little more about the outcome of the two main characters. But, I guess we can always use our imaginations.

    I cannot tell you how much I loved the book and the stroy teller. It had me on the edge of my seat. I really had to listen to all of the last part. I could not put it down. I really want to hear more from both of them.

    For LAPD homicide cop Harry Bosch - hero, maverick, nighthawk - the body in the drainpipe at Mulholland Dam is more than another anonymous statistic. This one is personal. The dead man, Billy Meadows, was a fellow Vietnam "tunnel rat" who fought side by side with him in a nightmare underground war that brought them to the depths of hell.

    Daniel Mcafee says: "What a Terrific Book"
    "Very Good"
    Overall

    I would, and have recommended this book. Many twists and turns. Excellent narrator.

    Burned-out Hollywood screenwriter Bo Aikens is fed up with life in Los Angeles. He heads out of the hustle and bustle of the big city and arrives in picturesque Black River in Northern California, seeking relaxation and artistic inspiration. In small, idyllic Black River nearly everyone is happy, contented, and welcoming of strangers. But despite the beautiful setting, Bo begins to feel unsettled after several disturbing incidents.

    It was extremely well written, and the only disappointment was that it was over far too soon.

    Chicago policewoman Jack Daniels is back, and this time she's locked up in her mother's home, along with her fiancé, her mom, and one of the scariest psychos ever to escape from prison.

    They're being held hostage by a group of vigilantes on a murderous spree, who have gone from killing bad guys to wanting to take down a cop. And the suspense is killing everyone.

    Kathy says: "Audible! Get more Konard stories!"
    "This is definately a winner"
    Overall

    I enjoyed this book from the beginning to the end. It keeps you on the edge of anticpation for what you think is coming next. This author knows how to keep you guessing.
