    Devon Brady is a veterinarian working in a makeshift hospital at an island search and rescue site. When Jude Marrok arrives with his wounded black lab, she has no idea that she is about to be plunged into a whirlwind of terror, destruction, and passion. The last thing Devon needs is to be drawn into Marrok's high-stakes game. And while she feels increasingly drawn to him, she doesn't trust him. Is Jude her salvation or her damnation? Are the secrets he's protecting worth killing for?

    Overall

    This is the sort of book that causes a listener to lose IQ points.

    Poorly written, poorly plotted, worthless romance novel trash - stay away.

    Berlin, early 1948: The city, still occupied by the four Allied powers, still largely in ruins, has become the cockpit of a new Cold War, and as spring unfolds its German inhabitants live in fear of the Soviets enforcing a Western withdrawal. Here, as elsewhere in Europe, the legacies of the War have become entangled in the new Soviet-American conflict, creating a world of bizarre and fleeting loyalties, a paradise for spies. John Russell works for both Stalin’s NKVD and the newly-created CIA. He does as little for either as he can safely get away with.

    Story
    Where does Masaryk Station rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    The books in this series by Davis Downing are all excellent; this current one, apparently the last in the series, is no exception to the excellent rating.


    What didn’t you like about Michael Healy’s performance?

    Terrible phrasing, flat affect, awful pronunciation of German and Italian names, unlike the reader of all the previous novels in this series, Simon Prebble, who is a uniformly wonderful narrator.


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

    Yes, until I heard the reader; after that, listening became a chore.


    Any additional comments?

    It is truly a shame that the previously excellent series has been ruined by an inferior reader - what idiot made this decision to change?

    On his way to work one morning, Bill Chalmers suddenly discovers that he cannot remember where he is going, what he is meant to be doing or, indeed, who he is. He remembers only one thing, "The Maximum Information in the Minimum Time", his company's motto. But when his memory returns, it is accompanied by a numbness that gradually affects his entire body.

    What could have made this a 4 or 5-star listening experience for you?

    A book by another author!


    Has The Diagnosis turned you off from other books in this genre?

    Yes, all books by Alan Lightman


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

    Even Scott Brick, an otherwise excellent narrator who struggles mightily with this dog, couldn't save it.


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

    It wasn't too long.


    Any additional comments?

    'Tis a tale told by an idiot - full of sound and fury, signifying nothing!
