    Grainy CCTV footage shows a man walking into a bank and putting a gun to a cashier's head. He tells her to count to twenty-five. When he doesn’t get his money in time, she is executed. Detective Harry Hole is assigned to the case. While Harry’s girlfriend is away in Russia, an old flame gets in touch. He goes to dinner at her house and wakes up at home with no memory of the past twelve hours. The same morning the girl is found shot dead in her bed. Then Harry begins to receive threatening e-mails.

  • Girl Walks into a Bar...: Comedy Calamities, Dating Disasters, and a Midlife Miracle

    Story

    Anyone who saw an episode of Saturday Night Live between 1999 and 2006 knows Rachel Dratch. She was hilarious! So what happened to her? After a misbegotten part as Jenna on the pilot of 30 Rock, Dratch was only getting offered roles as "Lesbians. Secretaries. Sometimes secretaries who are lesbians." Her career at a low point, Dratch suddenly had time for yoga, dog- sitting, learning Spanish - and dating. After all, what did a forty-something single woman living in New York have to lose?

    "Nice one Rach!"

    A top story! I've never seen SNL (living in Australia) but I now get the gist of what Rachel brought to the show.

  • The Last Man: A Novel

    Story

    The four dead guards didn’t concern Mitch Rapp as much as the absence of the man they’d been paid to protect. Joe Rickman wasn’t just another foot soldier. For the last eight years Rickman had ran the CIA’s clandestine operations in Afghanistan. It was a murky job that involved working with virtually every disreputable figure in the Islamic Republic. More than a quarter billion dollars in cash had passed through Rickman’s hands during his tenure as the master of black ops and no one with a shred of sense wanted to know the details of how that money had been spent.

    K says: "Couldn't be better...except"
    "Another Vince Flynn blockbuster"

    What did you love best about The Last Man?

    The story, the Middle East setting.


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

    Generally I liked the performance although I thought George's voice wasn't what I thought Mitch Rapp would sound like. I thought he'd sound younger. George did very good Pakistani and Middle East accents though.


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No.
