    Tess Monaghan has finally made the move and hung out her shingle as a PI-for-hire, complete with an office in Butchers Hill. Maybe it's not the best address in Baltimore, but you gotta start somewhere, and Tess' greyhound Esskay has no trouble taking marathon naps anywhere there's a roof. Then, in walks Luther Beale, the notorious vigilante who five years ago shot a boy for vandalizing his car. He wants to make reparations to the kids who witnessed his crime, so he needs Tess to find them.

    Story

    I am new to this series, but am so pleased I found this author and these characters. I especially like her references to literature, history and news - old and current. This was a good mystery, with unanticipated twists and turns. I very much enjoyed the reader's ease at moving from character to character.

    Debt of Honor ends as Jack Ryan is confirmed vice president minutes before a mammoth act of terrorism kills the President, most of his cabinet, all but a few members of Congress, the entire Supreme Court and all of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. Suddenly Ryan is President, which is where Executive Orders begins.

    Story

    After listening to this book, I have been unable to find its match among the others claiming to be about Jack Ryan. Of course I think Hunt for Red October is the benchmark, but executive orders has enough intrigue, political machinations and family jeopardy to engage the listener for its extremely long duration. Worth the time to listen.

    Isabella, Mary, and Lauren are going to be bridesmaids in Kristi's wedding. On Sunday after Sunday, at bridal shower after bridal shower, they coo over toasters, eat tiny sandwiches, and drink mimosas. They're all happy for Kristi, but they do have the ups and downs of their own lives to cope with. Isabella is working at a mailing-list company, where she's extremely successful, and wildly unhappy. Mary is in love with a man who may never love any woman as much as he loves his mother. And Lauren, a waitress at a midtown bar, finds herself drawn to a man she's pretty sure she hates.

    There really should be some standard by which companyies decide to publish and audio book. This is not worth the price, the time or the space it takes up on my iPad.
    Avoid this at all costs.
